The employees that work there make your trip special. Other than that, an ok ship... kind of old and unfortunate boring as well. I wouldn't recommend it or take a cruise with carnival again.

My fiancé and I enjoy it all. It was our first time doing a cruise and we don't really know what to expect. But overall experience was excellent. Will do it again!

The whole 4-day cruise was like a dream come thru, mere imagination. The service was superb from the reception, to dining, to stateroom, to the entertainment and activities. Alex, the Cruise Director was above and beyond asset to the ship. He not only entertained but kept everyone abreast of the schedules of activities for everybody to follow from beginning to finish.

I would definitely recommend this particular cruiseline to all because of the crews' professionalism and cleanliness of the entire ship.Happy

My favorite part of the cruise was the amazing staff I met. Dj Fragg and George Mccallum were so wonderful. I cannot rave enough about how great they are. The comedy was great. The housekeeping was great. The food was wonderful. I have a wonderful experience.

Excellent Cruise

We had such a wonderful vacation on Carnival Imagination.  Our steward, Viktor was fantastic every step of the way.  The food  was good.  I think for the money we paid it was a great vacation.  The only disappointment we had was one morning we ate breakfast in the fancy dining room and the servers and hostess were rude and sort of uppity.  Everyone else was so friendly that this was weird.

This is our 5th cruise!  As always, we have a wonderful time.  The food, the entertainment and the staff excellent.  I have to specifically mention some staff that stood out during our cruise.  The cruise directer Alex absolutely made the trip.  He has been the best so far.  Nice job Alex!  The dining room staff were wonderful.  My daughter has a peanut allergy.  We sat at table 383 and our staff Anthony and Ikatu were FABULOUS!  Anthony was very attentive and careful with my daughter's allergy.  Went way beyond my expectations.

Grand Sailing!!

I would highly recommend this cruise to everyone of all ages. There are endless activities for anyone that is willing to participate. We had so much fun onboard & during shore excursions that we needed a couple of days off after sailing to recoup at home. LOL. The entire staff onboard the ship treated us like royalty. It was well worth going on a cruise. As a matter of fact, this was my third Carnival cruise 

I've been on & I have never had an unpleasant moment with them.

The ship is smaller than we have sailed on before, but the crew and amenities were outstanding!!  Guy's burgers were incredible and the dining room service was excellent. 

 

We attended two shows and the music/dancing was superb!

 

Get on and off the boat was very easy!!

The bar hopping excursion in Mexico was awesome! We had a lot of fun, I would certainly do that again. The cruise was nice but we had to wait for food to be prepared in every line we were in and it was just okay. The customer service was not like it was on other ships I've been on, the art gallery lady was very rude.

Try everything! Even if an activity doesn't sound that fun or like you'll fit it, go anyways. The crew makes everything fun for everyone.

Be sure to go to the Deli for a sandwich, good Pastrami. If you want to see more of the entertainment go for the early seating for dinner.

The ship is small enough to easily find your way around, yet big enough to never feel crowded. We loved having our breakfast and lunch outside at one of the bistro tables.
