Overall, our expectations of "cruising" were exceeded. This was our first cruise, so we weren't sure what to expect, so we were definitely happy with how it all turned out. There were over 900 kids on our cruise (none of our own), but until the last day I would have never known there were that many. They must really keep those kids busy because we hardly even saw any until the end! We would definitely recommend the Imagination, and plan on cruising again at some point in the near future.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
No complaints about anything having to do with the dining or the food, it was absolutely great!


5 out of 5
The only complaint here is that some of the shows and entertainment were held pretty late in the evening. We really would have like to go to some of them, but after all the day's activites we were too tired to venture out at midnight to watch them..

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Again, VERY impressed! We did not have 1 negative encounter with any of the staff. Everyone was very friendly, and helpful. One example of above and beyond would be our waiter Mark in the Pride dining room. He was first rate for every meal.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
We were extremely impress with how clean everything was, especially considering how many people were on board using everything.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
For first time cruisers, we expected to be cramped up in our room but we were very surprised and happy that our room offerred plenty of room for the 2 of us. If there would have been more than 2 we would have definitely needed a larger room though.

Pros: Food and service was great!

Cons: The itinerary.. we felt the day at sea should have been the 2nd day instead of the 3rd day

Recommends Carnival Imagination? Yes!
