It was OK, but not as expected

Sail Date: July 16, 2012

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Family w/older children

Room Type: Oceanview

The class of people on this cruise was disappointing, there were 14yr olds in thongs dancing by the pool, others showing too much PDA. Most disappointing was the times of arrival to ports, it arrived at Key west early morning till 1:30, where as Key West is more fun at night with it's nightlife, then it arrived in Cozumel from 1:30 to 9:30, where as we found out that the beaches in Cozumel close at 5pm. So by the time you got to a taxi and decided what you wanted to do, you were running out of time. It would have been better if the ship got there early in the morning. We didn't do any excursions because we had 13 people in our party, and they were pricey, but in hindsight it may have been a good idea. Everything in Cozumel seemed to be a tourist trap, the prices were double of in the US. A plate of nachos was 10 $. bucket of beer (6) was 20$!!! and you seemed to be trapped because of the location where ship docked, you had to pay or not get anything. even the shops were a ripoff! it was very disappointing.

Cons: The people, times of arrival

Recommends Carnival Imagination? No.

Ship Quality
Ship was older but clean
Food and Dining
The dinner's were good, except for a few items (ex: don't get the skillet steak, and some pasta could've cooked longer) the breakfast was good. lunch was more like cafeteria food, except the panini grill was good.
Cabin / Stateroom
we had 5 in our party, but our room was the same size as the people with 4 in their party with the addition of another bunk bed that folded down at night, which made it even smaller. I was expecting it to be a little bigger since we paid more for 5 people.
Service and Staff
Entertainment
the musical show was very good, comedy was OK.
Children's Programs
my older kids went to club O2 the first night, they said it was OK. they didn't go back after that, because each night the start time got later and later and they were too tired. the last evening, it didn't even start till 11:30, which was late, considering we had to get up early and be out of our room by 8am!
