I enjoyed the WIDE variety of food available for lunch and dinner. We dined in the Spirit dining room all three evenings. The first evening's food wasn't exceptional as I expected, considering the last cruise it was on all three days. I did enjoy the food in the Cafe during lunch and snacks. It was good all of the time except for the desserts on the first day. It was almost as if the cooks didn't add enough sugar to the cheese cakes. It was very odd and seemed to be food for a diabetic.

Loved the shows. The "Shout!" show wasn't broadway quality but nor was it local theater troupe quality either. It was simply entertaining.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Everyone was courteous and cheerful when interacting with me.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Some areas of the ship looked weathered and trashy. However, considering the low fare for that cruise it no doubt brought in people who otherwise would not have shown up. This much was obvious and most likely responsible for some areas of the shipped that looked weathered (spit on the floor, bottles and napkins on outside deck, etc)

Cabin / Stateroom

Room was cleaned twice a day! Very nice.

Pros: The variety of food and entertainment

Cons: Some of the fine dining food wasn't the best. Service in some areas seemed wanting as well.

Recommends Carnival Imagination? Yes!
