Sail Date: July 31, 2016
Ship: Carnival Imagination
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Cabin Number: R217
Traveled As: Family (older children)

Food was average but always plentiful at the buffet areas. Dinner was above average but the service was always right and above most people's standards. Had issues with our billing but the guest service counter was eager to fix all issues. Cruise director "Donkey" was very informative and always pleasant. The ship needs some major updating but never felt like we had lost value when sailing. For the first time cruising we had fun and next time will bring someone with our 14 year old. Hard for him to go on his own cause he was not to social. Overall good experience and would do it again on the same ship with a large group of friends and family!
