The Carnival Imagination was our first cruise. It only took me about 15 hrs to convince my husband that he would love it. We don't drink or gamble, and he thought we would be bored while on the ship. Finally, he agreed to just a 4 day cruise, and he loved it!
We stopped in Key West and Cozumel. In Key West we wandered on our own and took a Hop On Hop Off trolley tour - we had been to Key West before and loved it. Of course a visit to Kermit's Key (West) Lime Pie Shop was a must! We really hope to visit the town again to see more.
In Cozume we took a Carnival excursion to Tuluum to see the ruins and although it was a long bus ride it was worth it. The guide was wonderful on the bus and she was also very good at the site. We learned a lot about the Mayan culture and enjoyed our day immensely.
Onboard we had a fabulous time. We had purchased FTTF so boarded early, were able to drop off our carry on bags and enjoy lunch while watching the ship fill up with other guests as excited as us. Our CD was not great, not even good, but we had a lot of fun anyway and enjoyed each evening's show. We had chosen Yout Time Dining, asked for a table for 2 each evening and decided that is the best choice for us. We could visit with others sitting close by and still have conversations with just the 2 of us.
As we slowly wandered down the ramp leaving the ship, my husband put his arm around me and asked "so when are we cruising next?" He's hooked!

The ship is small enough to easily find your way around, yet big enough to never feel crowded. We loved having our breakfast and lunch outside at one of the bistro tables.
