Last Minute Surprise

Sail Date: September 10, 2012

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

This was a last minute decision to go and we could have fun anywhere as long as we are together. The showers were bigger than on our previous cruises but no counter space. Cabins were sufficent space with plenty of closet area. Entertainment was good in the evenings and overall cruise was very relaxing, which is what we were looking for. Check in was extremely fast and easy as well as leaving the ship. Luggage was very easy to claim and went very smoothly. Only second cruise on Carnival but would probably go again.

Pros: Very relaxing and good entertainment

Cons: Buffets were always crowded and food cold. Service was mediocre but everyone was friendly.

Recommends Carnival Imagination? Yes!

Ship Quality
Pool was closed a couple of times because of a chemical imbalance and since there is only one pool\, very inconvenient. And although we didn't utilize the water slides for the kids this time\, not cool.
Food and Dining
Buffets were always crowded and slow making the food cold. Dining rooms were better. Menu selection was broad enough for most tastes. Buffets didn't have many veggies.
Cabin / Stateroom
Plenty of closet space and shower larger than most\, however\, bathroom floor always flooded when taking a shower. Drainage was not good. No counter space and room for personal items.
Service and Staff
Cabin steward was very attentive and made sure cabin was always immaculate. Wait staff was friendly and efficient at dinner.
Adult entertainment was great. Also enjoyed the afternoon parties on deck (hairy chest\, etc.). Did not go to the dancing\, karaoke\, etc.
