Not fun for 10 year old son.

Sail Date: September 14, 2012

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Oceanview

This cruise was specifically chosen to also appeal to our 10 year old son. It had a water slide and the kid camp. However, the water slide did not work the entire time and the kid camp events were way too young for a 10 year old boy. One night they only watched a movie, one had already see. I pulled him out to see one of the shows instead. Needless to say, he didn't have has much fun as it was advertised on the website. Will not do this cruise again for his sake.

Pros: Adult experiences were fun.

Cons: The water slide didn't work

Recommends Carnival Imagination? No.

Ship Quality
Ship size and layout was great.
Food and Dining
Food was amazing. But the breakfast buffet was gross. Recommend breakfast in the dining room.
Cabin / Stateroom
Upper level was great and very roomy.
Service and Staff
Staff was amazing!!!
Great for adults. Lousy for kids.
Children's Programs
Our 10 year old son is used to much more physical activity (he's a baseball player) and has always played with older kids. He would have been more suited for the next older group. I recommend they allow the parent and child at 10 or 11 years old to choose which group. Our son felt the activities for him were too childish. And since he had been looking forward to the water slide\, he was totally disappointed when it didn't work the entire trip. This was not a fun cruise for him.
