Excellent cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Imagination | Sail Date: May 17, 2015

I highly recommend this cruise to my family and friends which I already had done so....

FOOD.....................was excellent

SERVICE................was so good....crews members were so friendly consistently on their duties what they supposed to.

STATEROOMS ......were so clean....unbelievable they cleaned 3 times per day

WE ALL PLAN........take the same cruise sometimes in very near future

HIGHLY..................recommend to friends, neighbors, Co-workers etc...

A+ THUMB UP........for American Airlines Agent ' Desiree Remeres ' for her excellent consistent reminders what we need to do etc....PLUS her GOOD & FRIENDLY service

EXCELLENT & EXCELLENT......we will cruise again Worldwide in very near future and definitely put AA for our considerations on cruises arrangements.

Despite the rainy weather and getting sea sick - the rain did not stop us from 

having an amazing time...... even zip lining in the rain was a blast! Highly 

recommend it!!!

Perfect First Cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Imagination | Sail Date: May 07, 2015

This was our first cruise and it was wonderful. We had a few issues with our room (the sewer backed up and flooded the room), but after talking sternly with Guest Services, we were eventually given an upgraded room.

In the future I will not book through Cheap Cruises. Immediately after booking we started receiving unwanted telemarketing calls from across the country. Plus, most cruise lines' websites have low price guarantees. We could have saved money by booking directly with Carnival.

Food not satisfactory & not enough entertainment to choose from

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Imagination | Sail Date: Apr 30, 2015

   

This was my husbands 3rd cruise and my 1st and we were not happy with the selection of food that was provided. The buffet did not have any seafood or sushi to choose from, which there should be and the restaurants also didn't have enough seafood to choose from as well. There also should have been different kinds of chicken and meats to choose from as well, but there wasn't. We also were unhappy and inconvenienced with porting in San Diego instead of returning back to Long Beach port from where we originally ported from, we understood it was due to weather conditions but it still was an unpleasant & unwanted inconvenience. There should be more different kinds of shows to choose from, and not just a comedy show and a magic show.Sad

The Best cruise we've ever taken

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Imagination | Sail Date: Apr 30, 2015

My wife and I just recently took the 3-day cruise on the Carnival Imagination. From the moment we arrived at the terminal until the end of the trip the service was the best service my wife and myself ever experienced and a great value for your hard earned money. The captain has a top notch team. This is my third cruise and my wife's first. I've cruised both NCL and Royal Caribbean. The only negatives that kept us from giving 5-stars are (1) Being bombarded by individuals daily to purchase something and (2) I love Pancakes and Waffles and they were always lukewarm. Other than that, everything else was incredible. We were completely relaxed and pampered and partied like it was 1999 everyday and it's our belief that before you leave this earth you have to experience this cruise. We will definitely take this cruise again

Bad 1st cruise experience

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Imagination | Sail Date: Apr 30, 2015

I went on 1st cruise on the Imagination cruise this past weekend. I was in stateroom E68. In E70 the couple was arguing fighting breaking things. The crew had to come to the room several times with security. I was not happy as this was my 1st cruise and my time to relax. I am a mother of 8 and a RN who works very hard so I was excited to have this time to relax. Also we docked at San Diego instead of Long Beach due to the weather. Inconvenience. The worst part was after the 2 hour ride to long beach we were held on the bus for 45 minutes. The bus driver refused to let us off the bus and allowed several other buses to go ahead of us. This almost made me miss my plane. I was unable to return to my family's home in California to retrieve several of my items. Overall I would say that my overall experience was horrible. I am making a formal request that my trip be reimbursed due to an unsatisfactory experience.

Not Bad but not the best.

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Imagination | Sail Date: Apr 26, 2015

Our 4 Nights Catalina & Baja Mexico was Okay, the Carnival Imagination was Okay. The entertainment was not so good. The Dynasty Bar is not the best for nice show, Not much entertainment on this cruise. found myself going to bed/ room early, the food was only Ok, need to improve. I have being on a few cruises and all 3 other were better than the Canival Imagination. And only one real "Specialty Restaurant" , not many choices to pick from.

We traveled with 6 other friends/family to celebrate a birthday and we completely enjoyed it! The service was great, food was delicious, the spa was so relaxing and the staff was so friendly! We will definitely go on another Carnival cruise!

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.

Rent a golf cart at Catalina Island to get around, well worth it. But if you do, reserve it in advance. You'll get it for 3 hours vs 2 hours if you rent one on site. The extra hour will make the difference and you won't feel as rushed to return it.

The Empress Deck with its large windows was great. Worth the extra cost.
