Carnival Imagination has officially moved from Miami to the West Coast port of Long Beach, Calif., joining Carnival Inspiration and Carnival Miracle for year-round, three- and four-day cruises to Ensenada and Baja, Mexico. During the ship’s second sailing from Long Beach on Jan. 30, more than 100 travel agents attended and learned how to make it a special experience for clients. Jennifer Buenrostro and Drew Santiago, business development managers, and Vicky Tomasino, regional vice president of community and trade relations, hosted the two-night cruise to Ensenada.
Travel agents were treated to a private cocktail party at Serenity, the adults-only outdoor section of the ship, as well as a galley tour and a cooking demonstration, where agents learned how to make the cruise line’s famous warm melting chocolate cake.
