From Egypt to England to the Caribbean, the Imagination is a ship that delights in surprising guests with unique motifs and flights of fancy. The promenade is lined with golden sphinxes and other mythological creatures. Two exotic lounges are named after fabled Shangri-La and Xanadu. The library exudes the quiet charm of an English manor, while the El Dorado Casino constantly rings with excitement. Dine in your bathing suit by the pool, or dress up for international entrees at the Spirit Dining Room. For those who don't have a whole week to travel, these four- and five-night cruises from Miami to Key West and Mexico are simply ideal. Your dreams become reality on the Imagination.

So-so Baja cruise by Sox99

This was our first cruise and we'd never do this particular cruise again. Food was mediocre and Ensenada was a total dump.

My only suggestion to make the ship better is to make it so that we can understand the important messages over the speakers. I could not understand any of the announcements.

Not as expected by Rupshi

/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Large Group

The cruise was not as expected.We thought there will be a lot of activities and shows but to our disappointment there was nothing much available. The food was very repetitive as well and didn’t enjoy the selection at the lido deck . We booked our trip last March and in spite of that the sitting tables we got for our sit down dinner in all three days bad just bad.We later came to know that there better selections or people who were dining at the other dining room .Why this discrepancy.Overall,based on the experience I had ,I am not going to recommend this cruise to other perplu

Thanksgiving break by dmccashland

This is the third time we have taken this cruise; first time in the Imagination. The Inspiration seemed cleaner, an additional ping pong table. We did have a fire on board and our son was in the cabin asleep; luckily he woke up and smelled the smoke and joined us upstairs. The smell in the cabin was strong the rest of the day.

This was the first time I’ve been able to just enjoy myself and do things without having to be the “host” so worth it!! Will do this trip again and again!!

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.

Ok so you say you don't like cruising than your lying to yourself. Relax, sleep, read, party, listen to live music its all there so go do it!

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.
