Carnival Imagination is probably one of the smallest cruise ships, but still it has everything that you might want to have. Because of the affordable price, the crowd is not super classy, if you know what I mean, but if you like being with regular, hard-working folk and having a good time, then you will enjoy this ship!

Pros: Everything was great! Pool time, dining, drinks, friendly staff, dancing!!!

Cons: Can't really think of anything bad to say!

Recommends Carnival Imagination? Yes!

Service and Staff
I thought the staff was ok...I felt bad for them because they seemed a little tired.
Ship Quality
Food and Dining
We had so much fun!!! Disco dance lessons, ice carving demonstration, set sail parties, hairy chest contest, costume contest. The Chef's Table experience ($75/person) was AMAZING!!!!
Cabin / Stateroom
I've heard that the cruise ship rooms are really small, but we were pleasantly surprised with our stateroom U141. It was just a regular room with a window but it had 3 large closest, a vanity & mirror and the bathroom was just perfect for our purposes. Honestly, we kept the curtains drawn every day and could have easily saved the money and gotten an interior room for better sleep (less light).
Cozumel, Mexico
We spent most of our time at Dolphinaris swimming with the dolphins which was a once in a lifetime experience!!! Highly recommended!!! We walked to downtown Cozumel to do some shopping...smaller vendors were definitely negotiable on prices...but the mall stores would not budge on their pricing.
Don't Miss: Dolphinaris -- swim with the dolphins!!!
Key West, Florida
We were in Key West from 9am to 1pm and the island doesn't really wake up until night time so it was a little boring. Most bars & restaurants were not even open yet before we returned to the ship.
