A Weekend to Relax

Sail Date: November 02, 2006

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

We have been on many Carnival Cruises before. The Fascination, Imagination, Liberty, Victory, Pride and Triumph. It's obvious we love cruising. However, upon return to the Imagination for just a weekend jaunt was a little dissapointing. Its time to refurbish. The pool lounge chairs were broken and there were several bulbs out in our stateroom. The ship was clean and sparkling and the cabin staff could not be more accommadating. A+ for service. Our dining experience could have been better. Apparently they are testing the possibility of menu changes. The new proposed menu is less than pleasing. There previous menu was like eating in a 5 star establishment. If its not broken don't change it. Now its more like an upscale cafeteria. If the cost of cruising is a factor, then the Imagination and Fascination are good choices but If you spend just a little more, I recommend their larger ships.. That's a 10 star experience.

Cons: The Food Choices

Recommends Carnival Imagination? No.

Key West, Florida
Key West is fantastic. It would be better if the ships itinerary could be to stay longer. Very little time to do much when you have to return to the ship by 1:30pm. To experience Key West night life is something not to be missed.

Calica, Mexico
Our mission was to relax on this cruise. So we took a 10 minute cab ride into Playa de Carmen, and walked a couple of blocks to the beach. For $40.00 you can get a 1 hour message under a Tiki Hut, with the ocean just steps away and the sea breeze flowing over your body. 10 Stars. Grab a couple of 2.00 beers and you feel like your heaven. Not to mention, many europeans visit this beach and have no problem going topless. Hubby liked that. Not into that, Cancun is a 45 minute car ride, water sport choices are everywhere.
Don't Miss: Carlos and Charlies is always an excellent choice for a good time.
