Very Nice cruise

Sail Date: March 21, 2011

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Suite

The Imagination is an old ship by todays standards and does not offer a lot of bells and whistles. That being said the crew work hard to ensure the guests have a great experience. I took this cruise because it was short and my cruise partner had never been on a cruise before and we wanted to make sure she would enjoy the cruise experience before booking for a week or longer.

Pros: Cabin Space

Cons: Deck space, not enough lounge chairs

Recommends Carnival Imagination? Yes!

I didn't think the lounge entertainers were very diverse, just one type of music.
Ship Quality
Food and Dining
The food in the dining room was good, service was spotty at times.
Service and Staff
Only 3 American crew members on the entire ship, communication was not always the best.
Cabin / Stateroom
We had a suite with a large balcony so how can you go wrong!!
Key West, Florida
Key West is great fun, only trouble is you are not in port very long (9:00am - 1:30pm) enough and you have to take a shuttle bus to get to where Carnival docks the boat. which reduces your "fun" time even more. 9:00am is too early to get into this port as much of Duval street isn't awake at this early hour.
Don't Miss: Butterfly Conservatory
Cozumel, Mexico
You are in this port for a long time. Tours all leave the ship at the same time and it's chaos.
Don't Miss: Royal Dolphin swin
