October 2016 - Carnival Imagination to Mexico
I loved almost everything about the cruise. Waking up in Mexico with the whole day to go play was awesome. We were worried about racking up extra charges so we didn't activate the Carnival HUB app until after the second day. I don't think it did end up costing us anything to use the app, we just didn't buy a data plan with it.
We did get hit with about 50 bucks each in gratuities which we weren't expecting. Also we expected it to be all inclusive, but wifi wasn't free, also soft drinks are not free. It did strike us as interesting because you can load up on drinks such as orange juice, punch, milk and water but if you are a soda drinker like myself you have to pay for it and then you have to sit down at the bar and wait until the bartender gets to you. I would have liked to see self serve soda fountains.
but the service was awesome and super friendly. They made us feel like royalty. they took the time to learn our names.
It was a great experience.
