Carnival Imagination

January 2015 - 4 Night Catalina & Baja Mexico (Los Angeles Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Imagination

LOTS of Great Times: Fun, Food, Oceanviews & Relaxation

FOOD: (B+) lots of variety of them; delicious; many desserts; a few exotic [alligator fritters, frog legs]; pizza & ice cream 24/7; great selection of teas to make; hot chocolate maker avail.; creative mixed drinks avail.too.Bartenders were not intrusive & careful, & respectful if one said "no."

ENTERTAINMENT; (A+)  Shows have great singers & dancers with lots of quality choreography & "cool" costumes, performers were exuding  positive energy/smiles; comedy shows were very humorous available in age appropriate categories [fam. & adult],--announced clearly to audiences@beginning. Lots of very talented bands/singers presenting various styles of music.  Fun game shows-- for fam. & adult audiences.Big deck dance party lead by staff followed by yummy Mex. buffet. Lots of fun things to do on board much of the time.

SHIP: (B+) Very clean mostly; Very pretty lounges,  bar & dance lounges open a lot. Lots of windows around perimeter for inside viewing of the ocean. Lots of decks/ space to see the coastal views of ports. Clear maps near elevators to guide passengers--so helpful !! Updated, quality speaker systems for music & announcements--very nice. The carpets, & cabin look clean, pleasant, & appealing. Pools & hot tubs cleaned & pretty[& popular]. Lots of signs so one knows where one is--helpful on a big ship.

STAFF: (A) Friendly, attentive, lots of them; & personable; & competent;  worked to keep things clean & repaired; had positive attitudes a lot of the time. Looked like they were working to keep up w/their duties.

I took this same cruise  & ship 2 months ago & it keeps getting better; it was good the 1st time. I will have taken similar cruises FOUR times this winter ['14-'15] w/Carnival.by the end of the winter. The cruise can be both fun & relaxing, depending on what you want out of it, or whatever suits your mood/schedule each day.  I don't disembark at the ports of call, because I have lots of fun on board; & have been to these ports beforehand.  However it is still lots of fun & relaxing to stay on board & just enjoy the food, music, & views on big beautiful boats like this one. Carnival Cruise lines sets an atmosphere of fun & enjoyment on their cruise ships in many ways.

carolinammiller's Tips

Carnival Imagination Carnival Imagination - The ships are big, so try to familiarize yourself w/it through a walk through it, maps, etc. There are clear & helpful maps near each main elevator, if you need directions or guidance. Carnival has a daily paper of on board activities w/lots of info./fun stuff.
Carnival Inspiration Carnival Inspiration - Make sure you learn how to get around on the ship because it is big and not all the decks go through all the way. There are maps at guest services & at the elevators.
Carnival Imagination Carnival Imagination - The top decks at night have an excellent view of the ocean and coasts. However, cold weather outerwear [sweater, coat, gloves, etc] is recommended, since it is cold and windy on the open ocean.
