Carnival Imagination


Sail Date: October 17, 2011

Ship: Carnival Imagination

Cabin Type: Inside

Traveled As: Couple

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Review Summary

Overall the ship was clean and all employees were very friendly. However the ship is older and the staterooms lackluster. There was one electrical outlet total which made getting ready with two people very challenging. We were forced to wait several hours to board the ship which was extremely frustrating as was being re-routed to completely different locations. I understand severe weather and needing to change locations however Carnival took an is what it is approach and did nothing to rectify the situation.

Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The food was as to be expected for a cruise and the dinners were very good. We requested the late sitting for dinner with friends who also travelled on this cruise yet ended up with anytime seating which I was not a fan of.


3 out of 5
There were many activities but the space for coordinating activities was not always ideal. The comedy club was always packed and we were unable to see a few shows due to lack of space. On vacation I don't want to line up and wait for an hour to get a seat before a comedy show starts.

Cabin / Stateroom

Typical cruise stateroom. Very clean and overall fine despite the one outlet.

Pros: The cheap price

Cons: The cruise being re-routed with no refunds

Recommends Carnival Imagination? No.
