Sail Date: September 24, 2010
Ship: Carnival Imagination
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Family (young children)
Reviewed: 7 years ago
I would only recommend the ship since I consider it my fault for booking off-season when the cruise was less expensive. Since the cost and length of the cruise was agreeable to so many singles, I cannot fault the ship. Our servers, stewards, and other staff members made it extremely enjoyable. The food was delicious. The water play area was a blast. However; the cabin was a ridiculous size for a family of five. To use the bathroom at night, we had to crawl over each other. In addition, the extra floor-bed was not even the size of the pull-down bunk. Whom were they expecting to sleep on it? Otherwise, it was wonderful.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Food was delicious. Did not like dining with strangers.


3 out of 5
Only saw one show. The caliber was ok; not child-oriented.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Applies to our personal steward Igoberto and assistant; Head Waiter Romeo and Assistant; Laura, the Assistant Cruise Director; and Sasha the Bartender.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Carpets by the elevators are interesting in their design. There was an odor near the pool upon boarding. It may have been the food (seafood). Glad Carnival added Waterworks. Made staying onboard worth it.

Cabin / Stateroom

1 out of 5
Stateroom was clean and manageable during the day. At bedtime, go to bed since there is no room for otherwise.

Pros: The Water Works and the Mini Golf; Photo Ops; The Pride Restaurant; Servers, Stewards, and AM Bartender on Horizon Aft Buffet.

Cons: Inside smoking; 3am parties outside cabin; size of cabin; soda fee; Non-family oriented show

Recommends Carnival Imagination? Yes!
