I went on 1st cruise on the Imagination cruise this past weekend. I was in stateroom E68. In E70 the couple was arguing fighting breaking things. The crew had to come to the room several times with security. I was not happy as this was my 1st cruise and my time to relax. I am a mother of 8 and a RN who works very hard so I was excited to have this time to relax. Also we docked at San Diego instead of Long Beach due to the weather. Inconvenience. The worst part was after the 2 hour ride to long beach we were held on the bus for 45 minutes. The bus driver refused to let us off the bus and allowed several other buses to go ahead of us. This almost made me miss my plane. I was unable to return to my family's home in California to retrieve several of my items. Overall I would say that my overall experience was horrible. I am making a formal request that my trip be reimbursed due to an unsatisfactory experience.
