Ship: Carnival Imagination
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 6 years ago

The ship itself was nice overall. With that being said, it is almost 20 years old and showing its age. Repairs are needed and routine maintance is required. Some of the stuff was outdated. Our room the bathroom sink was rattling, the bathroom fan was broken and was across from the laundry area which always seems to smell bad.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Quality of food was decent. Not a 4 star food option but not bad either. There were a few choices for food. But mostly they all involved the buffet area. Dinning times and assgined seating times stunk. Ambiance was ok little dated.

Tons to do. Event card provided daily. Some fun things overlapped though. Good times.

Ship Quality

Size was huge. Took most of trip to learn where everything was located. Layout was neat. Public areas were nice and well kept. Decor is little dated.

Cabin / Stateroom

1 out of 5
Size was ok for a ship. Comfort was good. Condition of stateroom was sad. Paid for upgrade of window cabin and the window was so dirty we could not see out of it. The tv remote was broken on first day check in. The bathroom sink rattled. The bathroom fan was broken. The laundry area was across the hall and smelled the entire cruise.

Pros: The amount of activties. Most of the food. Friendlyness of staff

Cons: Condition of ship. Eating arrangements, Non included cost

Recommends Carnival Imagination? No.
