5 Night Western Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip)
Sail Date: September 29, 2007
Ship: Carnival Imagination
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Family (young children)

The rooms were dirty and out dated - the dresser drawers would not shut and the cleaning service was terrible (we had dirty bath robes in our room) - During the drill the cruise staff kept telling us the fasten our life vests...but my daughter and my vests were broken...we could not fasten the buckles - they were gone!

Service and Staff

1 out of 5
We actually had to complain about the caniso staff! they were rude and unfriendly - the state room staff were horrible - not friendly! The only staff we felt went "above and beyond" were the gift shop staff, the children club staff finally the wait staff. - Everyone else were horrible - they would not even smile if you walk by them and greeted them.

Ship Quality

1 out of 5
needed a major overhall - not a pretty ship for the money you pay. - I felt like we were in a dirty Days Inn.

Cabin / Stateroom

Dirty and outdated - chiped and cracked sinks - dresser drawers and closet would not close properly - mold in shower - dirty carpets.
