FANTASTIC AND RELAXING CRUISE!!!!

Sail Date: May 03, 2007

Reviewed: 9 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Balcony

THE SHIP IS OLD AND DOES SHOW. BUT IS VERY CLEAN. THE CARPET HAD STAINS AND WAS WORN BUT IT DID NOT AFFECT OUR CRUISE

Pros: ENTIRE CRUSE WAS SOOO RELAXING I TRULY FEEL I HAD A VACATION. SO OFTEN I TAKE A VACATION AND NEED A VACATION FROM THE VACATION. BUT ALL OUR NEEDS WERE TAKEN CARE OF AND WE HAD TO WORRY ABOUT NOTHING. I CAME HOME FEELING VERY RELAXED.

Cons: OUR ONLY COMPLAINT WAS THE WATER ON THE SHIP. IT TASTED TERRIBLE! ANYTHING THAT USED THE WATER WAS BAD ALSO. THE COFFEE AND JUICES. WE PURCHASED WATER DURING THE ENTIRE CRUISE.

Recommends Carnival Imagination? Yes!

Food and Dining
THE FOOD WAS VERY GOOD!! AND THERE WAS ALWAYS A CHOICE AND A LOT TO CHOOSE FROM. YOU COULD ALWAYS FIND SOMETHING YOU LIKED. THE PASTRY CHEF SHOULD BE COMPLIMENTED BECAUSE EVERY DESERT WAS WONDERFUL AND WELL PRESENTED. WE DID THE EARLY DINNER AND THAT IS TOO EARLY IF YOU DO ANYTHING DURING THE DAY. WE WOULD DO A LATE DINNER NEXT TIME.
Ship Quality
THE SIZE OF THE SHIP WAS VERY ;MANAGEABLE ONCE WE FOUND OUR WAY AROUND. I RECOMMEND YOU TAKE THE TOUR IT WILL HELP WITH GETTING AROUND. THEY WERE ALWAYS CLEANING SO I HAVE NOT COMPLAINTS OF THE CLEANLINESS. ACCESSIBILITY IN SOME AREAS ARE CONFUSING BUT THIS IS THE SAME WITH OTHER CRUISES I WAS ON. BUT ONCE YOU LEARN YOUR WAY AROUND THAT IS NOT A PROBLEM. IF YOU DO NOT HAVE CHILDREN TRAVELING WITH YOU I RECOMMEND YOU USE THE ADULT POOL AND HOT TUB ON V DECK. IT WAS NEVER CROWDED UNTIL THE LAST DAY. MANY TIMES WE WERE THE ONLY ONES IN THE HOT TUB.
Cabin / Stateroom
WE HAD A BALCONY STATEROOM AND ALTHOUGH THE BALCONY WAS SMALL IS WAS VERY NICE TO HAVE BREAKFAST, ( DELIVERED TO OUR ROOM) OUT THERE. NO YOU WONT FALL OFF OF IT! IT WAS WORTH THE EXTRA MONEY TO HAVE THE BALCONY. IF YOUR TRAVELING AS A COUPLE IT IS A NICE PLACE TO ENJOY THE SUNSET AND SUNRISE TOGETHER. THE BED WAS SO COMFORTABLE!. I SLEPT LIKE A BABY EVERY NIGHT. OF COURSE BEING SO BUSY DURING THE DAY PROBABLY CONTRIBUTED TO THAT.
Service and Staff
THE STAFF WAS EXCEPTIONALLY FRIENDLY. I HAD PROBLEMS WITH MY CAMARA AND THE MANAGER OF THE PHOTO SHOP WENT TO HIS ROOM AND USED HIS PERSONAL LAP TOP TO TRY AND HELP ME WITH MY PROBLEM I CALL THAT GOING ABOVE AND BEYOND !!!
OUR ROOM STEWART MANAGED TO CLEAN OUR ROOM AND NEVER BE IN OUR ROOM WHEN WE WERE. I STILL DONT KNOW HOW THEY DO THAT!. BUT WHEN WE DID NEED SOMEHTING, LIKE A CORK SCREW HE ANSWERED HIS PAGE IMMEDIATELY AND TOOK CARE OF US!
Entertainment
THE ENTERTAINMENT WAS TOP NOTCH! THE EVENING ENTERTAINMENT WAS VEGAS QUALITY. THE DAY TIME ENTERTAINMENT WAS ENTERTAINING AND ALWAYS ON TIME. THE CREW WORKED HARD AT MAKING YOU FEEL INCLUDED AND WELCOME.
i HAD A MASSAGE BUT WOULD NOT DO THAT AGAIN. IT WAS RELAXING BUT NOT WORTH THE $200 IT COST ME! SAVE THAT FOR THE PORTS!!!!
Calica, Mexico
WE WENT FISHING. IF YOU CHOOSE THIS BE PREPAIRED FOR A BOAT THAT IS A LITTLE MORE THAN A WOODEN ROW BOAT. ALSO BE PREPAIRED TO GET WET. YOU HAVE TO WADE OUT TO THE BOAT THAT IS ABOUT THIGH HIGH BUT WITH THE WAVES YOU WILL BE WET ABOVE YOUR WAISTE. ALSO THERE IS NOT LADDER TO GET INTO THE BOAT. YOU HAVE "CRAWL" IN. I AM SHORT AND HAD TO BE LIFTED INTO THE BOAT. THE SEATS ARE WOODEN AND VERY HARD ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU ARE HITTING WAVES. THE TOUR GUIDE THOUGH WAS GREAT AND REALLY WANTED YOU TO CATCH FISH AND HAVE FUN. OUR " CAPTAIN" WAS GREAT TOO. THEY ALSO PROVIDE YOU WITH DRINKS, WATER SODA AND BEER. SO YOU WILL NOT NEED TO TAKE ANY DRINKS WITH YOU. YOU ASLO GET A MEAL WITH THIS AND ALL THE DRINKS YOU WANT. THERE IS AN OPEN BAR., WE WERE OUT FOR ABOUT 2 HOURS AND 2 PEOPLE GOT TO FIGHT A FISH. ONE LINE BROKE AND THE OTHER THE FISH WAS PUT BACK. I MIGHT DO THIS AGAIN BUT WITH A LITTLE DIFFERENT PREPERATIONS. THIS EXCURSION ALSO HAS A BEACH ONLY OPTION. WHICH INCLUDE OPEN BAR.
Don't Miss: REMEMBER YOUR IN MEXICO. THERE ARE NOT A LOT OF FRILLS ON THIS EXCURSION. BUT BEAUTIFUL BEACHES!!!
Key West, Florida
WE DID THE BIKE RIDE WHICH I WOULD RECCOMEND. OUR GUIDE WAS VERY KNOWLEDGABLE. THE RIDE WAS VERY RELAXED AND EASY. IT WAS ALL FLAT AND WE STOPPED OFTEN. WOULD NOT BE A TUFF RIDE FOR ANY ONE. MUCH EASIER THAN WALKING.MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A WAY TO CARRY ANY PERSONAL ITEMS ON THIS RIDE AS THERE ARE NO BASKETS . KEY WEST REALLY CATERS TO THE VISITORS. WE ALSO PARASAILED HERE WHICH WAS FANTASTIC! AT 56 I WOULD DO THAT AGAIN! AND I AM AFRAID OF HEIGHTS! YOU CAN CHOOSE TO GET WET OR NOT. WE CHOSE TO GET OUR LEGS WET. YOU CAN TAKE PERSONAL ITEMS ONBOARD BUT YOU LEAVE YOUR SHOES AT THE DOCK SO BE PREPAIRD FOR THAT. WE HAD LUNCH AT A SMALL RESTAURANT AND THE PRICE WAS FAIR AND THE FOOD WAS GOOD NOTHING SPECIAL. BUT WE WERE NOT LOOKING FOR SPECIAL AT THE TIME. WE SAVED THAT FOR THE BOAT.
