Our original trip was supposed to go to Key West and Cozumel. After a forcasted hurricane, we were re-routed to Nassau Bahamas instead of Cozumel. This was announced and orchestrated perfectly, a very pleasant surprise. The activities and information on Nassau was made available immediately. The service on this ship is impecable. Made bed every morning while we were at breakfast, and while at dinner at night the room was cleaned, a funny towel folded, and tomorrow's itinerary right on your bed. Our stateroom steward was very attentive. The dinner service was amazing in the Pride diningroom. Our waiter, Romeo, was very pleasant and wonderful and made our dining experience so great that we made sure to get a picture with him on the last night of the cruise! The activities on this ship are awesome! Our two favorite shows were "Showtime" which there were two different shows on two nights of, a Vegas style show. and The Adult Comedy Show. They had 2 hillarious comedians on board who did multiple shows, which we went to three of. The destinations were awesome too. We chose to do our own excursions instead of some of the more pricey ones organized by the cruiseline, and had a blast. The casino on board was a great time, and we definitely had our favorite bartenders in each of the bars - all of whom were great. The ship is beautiful, fun, and there were great people on board. We couldnt have asked for a better week, Carnival Imagination rocks!

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The food was overall VERY good. The dining room options for dinner were great and delicious. The outdoor "Horizon Bar and Grill" was great food which we ate everyday for breakfast and lunch. The only thing I would say is that the only 24 hour dining option was the pizzeria and the pizza wasn't good, which was kind of dissapointing. So if you feel like a midnight snack, the optoins arent great. Though they did have room service sandwiches which we did not take advantage of.

ALWAYS fun things to do, great music playing and great people around. showtime and the adult comedy show were two of our favorites.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The cleanliness and accessibility are amazing. Some of the newer ships are definitely bigger and a bit more fancy, but the Imagination is really great.
