With the Carnival Imagination serving as a dramatic backdrop, NBC Today Show personalities Al Roker (left) and Matt Lauer report live from Key West, Fla., as part of their “Today on Vacation” series that included several segments featuring the southernmost city in the U.S.

The 2,052-passenger Carnival Imagination makes weekly port calls at Key West as part of its year-round short cruise program from Miami.  The popular schedule encompasses four-day cruises to Key West and Cozumel departing Mondays and three-day weekend cruises departing Fridays and overnighting in Nassau.

The line’s Carnival Freedom, which visits Key West on six-day cruises from Fort Lauderdale, was featured on the program earlier this week.
