Still low budget, no frills cruise line
Carnival Imagination Cruise Review to Caribbean - Western
Sail Date: March 07, 2011
Ship: Carnival Imagination
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 7 years ago
Ship seemed old and outdated. Decor was tacky, cabin was plain, dirty, and troublesome. Not enough staff to keep up with Lido buffet or common spaces. Easy to see why it attracts the college, party kids....they control the common spaces as well as the noise at night ("Shots!" all day/night long, everywhere). Recommendation is to stay away from this ship and if you insist on booking this ship for the ports like I did, don't do it in March.
