Great Cruise !

Sail Date: May 10, 2008

Reviewed: 9 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Oceanview

Fifth Cruise / First on Carnival -- Pretty much on par with RCL and Princess depending on what you are looking for. Ship decor was not as nice and food was not quite as good, however ship staff was slightly better and more accomodating and the casual feel of the onboard experience was very nice. Always plenty of activities and the shows were the best I had seen on a cruise ship !

Pros: Shows were Factastic

Cons: Time in ports was somewhat rushed ( common on cruise vacations)

Recommends Carnival Imagination? Yes!

Food and Dining
Still way above par, but not quite as good as RCL and Princess. Actually was a good thing to help control the pounds ! / The 24 hour ice cream and Pizza were always a temptation though !
Ship Quality
Very well maintained and comfortable -
Cabin / Stateroom
No complaints at all in this area. Good size rooms / excellent service
Service and Staff
If you'll remember there are over 2,000 people on board wanting to do the same thing at the same time and you are going to wait once in a while, you'll be OK. Carnival did a GREAT job handling the load !
By far the best I have seen on a cruise ship !
Ocho Rios, Jamaica
Dunns River Falls and Dolphin Cove. Costs a little more, but if you don't do those you haven't visited Jamaica !
Don't Miss: Dunns River Falls !
George Town, Grand Cayman
Family went our seperate ways and compared notes. Sting Ray City won out
Don't Miss: Sting Ray City
