Review SummarySailed on the Imagination in August 2011. Didn't know what to expect as it was my very first cruise although I did set my expectations rather high. All in all, it was a decent time; however, the food and the entertainment were subpar, in my opinion. The only time we didn't have a long wait to eat was in the main dining room (we did "your time" dining) and even there, the service was slow. Secondly, the entertainment shows we went to (2 of 3) were awful. The dancers sucked and the overall quality of the shows resembled high school performances. I was expecting Broadway quality shows but these were not it. The show during our last day on board (the only sea day) was 3/4 empty -- I wonder why... One of the other things that annoyed me most was the fact that there was only one swimming pool (on a boat with 2,600 people).
