Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Suite

Overall great value for your money.

Pros: Itinerary--two ports of call and one day at sea; waterslide; hairy chest contest; suite with a balcony

Cons: room service not reliable

Recommends Carnival Imagination? Yes!

Ship Quality
older ship and appears as such but clean
Food and Dining
food good; multiple choices; perfect portion size. opted for open dining to accomodate different family members' preferences but would prefer specific dining time. With specific time get to know wait staff better and they get to know your preferences. room service inconsistent--didn't get breakfast one morning but very prompt with afternoon drinks.
lot of options during day but not as much at night.
Cabin / Stateroom
had a suite in order to get a balcony. once you cruise with balcony, hard to cruise without one.
Service and Staff
Room steward, Satay, helpful, accomodating but not intrusive.
Children's Programs
4 y.o. granddaughter enjoyed the activities room and didn't hesitate to attend.
Key West, Florida
not our first visit to Key West so didn't spend a lot of time on shore.
Cozumel, Mexico
also, not our first visit. This time, however, took shore excursion which was excellent. Otherwise, would have probably stayed on ship
