A lot of Fun

Sail Date: March 09, 2009

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Oceanview

This ship was beautiful, a little smaller than the last cruise but still very nice. Although we had a track, couldn't use it because others were tanning with lounge chairs on it - which on this cruise was hard to find a chair being spring break time. The food was excellent, enjoyed 24hr pizza/ice cream! Never a lack of activities, shows were very packed, some people standing and making it difficult to see the event but was still good, maybe need side screen monitors for those having trouble seeing stage for the future. The love and marriage show was great but would like to see a singles dating show or a way for singles to meet. The singles night was packed with spring breakers and not age appropriate for me (31). Overall, I had a great time in karaoke, drinks were very good, other cruisers and staff were very friendly!

Pros: Activities, Karaoke, Food

Cons: no clocks, or bulletins posted with daily activities, hard to get a waiter for a drink

Recommends Carnival Imagination? Yes!

Cozumel, Mexico
Beaches were not impressive, did enjoy Carlos and Charlie lounge/bar/restaurant, beach was very far (15 min driving), skeptical about not going there thru cruiseline, did not want to spend 4-7 hrs tours, just beach and shopping. Did buy some very good Tequila!!
Don't Miss: Carlos and Charlie, Senor Frog, Tequileria with 200 varieties
Key West, Florida
Wish we had more time here, shopping was great, people were very friendly and not pushy with sales. If I knew the shopping would be so good, would have packed less, tops and bottoms $5-$10, bought dresses for $15 - nice clothing.
Don't Miss: shopping
