I came across a telling photo today -

it kinda brings a lump in your throat!!

 

Visible are three Carnivals -and what looks like two RCLs?

Yes, from left to right it's Monarch, Sovereign, Carnival Inspiration, Carnival Fantasy, and Carnival Imagination. 

 

However, this picture is dated.  The last picture I saw had the Sovereign almost completely demolished with only a small portion of her stern remaining.  Also, the Fantasy is now dismantled all the way back to her funnel.

Link is no longer valid. Can you tell us where to find these again ?

It's on a "the Book of Faces" page called "Ship Breaking".  You'll have to scroll down a ways, but it's there.  The page is open to the public, so you should be able to get in.

 

Relative to the invalid link, did you put the ".com" suffix to the 'book of faces' when copying the link?

Many thanks for the tip! I just signed up.

Amazing pics of all the equipment they salvage

and have stored in warehouses, to be used again!

On the subject of Scrapping For Survival

I found this interesting and realistic article

re. Carnival's priorities -and which ship/s get the chop, next.

 

https://www.cruisehive.com/carnival-releases-big-update-more-ships-being-offloaded/45629

 

The article is accompanied by a somewhat distressing photo

of Carnival Fascination in poor shape, re. hull paint..

Carnival Fascination will become an hotel ship, Century Harmony,

and is in transit to Singapore now.

Lucky Fascination!

She's escaped the chopping block for now!

 

Love the impromptu lettering! - LOL!

DW and my first ever cruise in 1991.  At the time we thought the ship was huge.  Had a great time sailing on her.  Sad to see this being scrapped but each of us have our own time when we will sail no more.
