Great 4 night getaway!

Sail Date: October 2012
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)

The Carnival Imagination was very nice. It is an older ship (about 8-9 years old) but it was very well taken care of and extremely clean. Our outside cabin was facing aft, so we could see the wake when looking out the window. The cabin steward was extremely nice and very accommodating.

The entertainment was pretty good. . . .2 great production shows and a wonderful and funny cruise director. The two comedians on board were not particularly funny, so we only went to one of their shows. There was no entertainment show on Halloween because we were in port until 10:00pm. They did have a deck party but we didn't stay up for that. I couldn't believe the number of people that dressed up in costumes on Halloween! We did watch the costume parade at 9:00pm and that was entertaining.

The food was pretty good. We ate at the buffet most afternoons and the selection was good. The salad buffet, deli section, pizza, and desserts were all in a separate station from the main More buffet line. Also, by the pool they had a grill, rotisserie, and Mongolian Wok. At dinner we ate in the main dinning room and the food was very good and the presentation was great. Service wasn't great on 2 of the nights, but the other two were fine. We chose anytime dining and had different waiters each night. I guess it just depends on who your waiter is. We mentioned it to guest services and they adjusted our gratuity without us even asking. All in all, it was a great 4 night getaway. Less

Cabin review: 6CU226 Ocean View

Cabin U226 on Carnival Imagination: Location was great for us. Not in a high traffic area. It had a great view of the wake off the back of the ship. No sofa in the cabin, but that didn't bother us. We rarely use the sofa anyway. Bathroom was quite small (as on most cruise ships)but the shower was a decent size and the shower head was great. All in all, very nice accommodations for 4 nights!

We had been to Cozumel a number of times so we just got off the ship and walked around the shops for a short time.

We had been to Key West many times, so we only got off the ship for about 1/2 hour and did a little shopping.
