Relaxing Moms Getaway Cruise

Ship: Carnival Imagination | Sail Date:

 My friend and I were looking for a relaxing weekend cruise. We called it 'moms needed vacation' cruise and it was a cost effective trip. The cruise to Enesenada exceeded our expectations. The Carnival Imagination staff was courteous, helpful, and made our time on the cruise fun. The food was excellent. The Serenity Lounge was a favorite place to relax and enjoy quietness on the ship. We enjoyed our room with a balcony. There were lots of families and activities on the cruise. We opt not to do shore excursions. We enjoyed our stroll in city plaza of Ensenada. There are fun places to shop. The locals we met were very nice and helpful. It was an simple and relaxing vacation.

Ship: Carnival Imagination | Sail Date:

The favorite part of the cruise was sharing the times with my family!the least favorite part finding a fake boob under my bed and carnival losing my suitcase! And my daughters wedding at the last min bent moved three different rooms and seeing her miserable after us trying to make her happy and the guest relation people saying different things like each of us getting reimbursed for the luggage and contents! Now it's 1000 for both and that doesnt includes he medications and all the clothes makeup and contacts and hair supplies and clothing!

My favorite thing about this cruise was the many choices that we had for the food, the people working in the ship are the ones that make the cruise the BEST EVER.  I will recommend this cruise to all my family and friends.

I recommend this cruise to others especially first timers.   A couple of recommendations.  We booked a suite but were never told we should check in at the Captain's Lounge instead of in line. The wait was a while.  Regarding the  food, variety in the buffet could use some sprucing up.  After a while, it was the same ol, same ol. Entertainment was okay.  Would have been nice to have some Mexican Music upon arrival or during our stay in Ensenada.  Afterall, we were in Mexico!

Great cruise for family with great price

Ship: Carnival Imagination | Sail Date:

With this average price, it's a great cruise with clean cabin and good food.  I would recommend for people who likes short trip.  The cabins are clean and they fixed up your room twice a day.  The food is good, it would be nice if they can extend the buffet time to 4pm or 5pm.  The pool is too small for so many people.  The sit down dinner and breakfast are awesome.

Ship: Carnival Imagination | Sail Date:

This year my 2 boys (13 & 20) and I went on our first cruise, Catalina, Mexico, to see if we are true cruisers!  We bought the Faster to the Fun and it was so well worth the extra!  We loved the room!  The food was pretty good but I don't like fish but found that the burgers were amazing!  All the ice cream was perfect but it would be good if there was stuff to make sundaes!  Water slide was a little small/short but was still really fun!  Pool was cold!  All the Jacuzzi's were always taken & crowded so only got to go in once!  Totally enough lounge chairs for everyone!  Played slots, bingo, watched shows &I loved the music!  It was great but think Me personally needs more activities for all ages on the at sea days!

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.

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.
