The old adage that you get what you paid for remains true with this Carnival Imagination 4 Day cruise. I am a seasoned cruiser and have always been very unsure to use Carnival. In May we took a 5 day cruise on Carnival and it was awesome. This trip however lived up to the reputation that Carnival has, being a C ship. The service was poor compared to other cruise I have been on. The Cruise director was not very impressive she was very poor at her job. We had really bad weather on our one day that we were to be on the ship all day and there were very few activities to participate in.

Pros: Just getting away from the rat tace of life is owrth it

Cons: Service on this was very poor

Recommends Carnival Imagination? Yes!

Cabin / Stateroom
Our stateroom was equipped with a twin bed and bunk bed (this is not usual) but..... when we asked them to make the bed into a double the dragged in a roll away bed with a VERY old mattress. I asked that they change out the mattress and was told they were all that way. In cruise past it has NEVER been a problem to make up a double bed...not sure why the problem. The other couple that we were cruising with had the same problem.
Service and Staff
Nothing too wonderful about the wait staff. VERY obvious that they know they are getting their tips whether they perform good or bad at their job. Service was VERY minimal in the dining room. That was very disappointing!!!
Ship Quality
Ship for it's age was in decent shape.
Food and Dining
The quality of the food was good, nothing spectacular but good.
