Suite had a lot of room, nice walk-in closet. Bathroom was kind of cramped. Lots of counter space. felt like it was stripped of necessities like coffee maker and a working refrigerator.

Cabin U69
Feb 2016
will attach photos, U69, was upsold from an oceanview room to this one about a week before sailing, Carnival rep promised whirlpool tub, couch, and other grand suite amenities. As we were cruising with friends and love to play boardgames, this sounded good. However, U69 is a disabled-person suite, no couch, no tub (but big shower still), motorized door (cool at first, then annoying to wait for every time). Still felt very roomy, but the change w/out warning wasn't cool. Complained, received $50 onboard credit.

Cabin U101-107
Nov 2015
The inability to have the balconies opened between staterooms really negatively affected our cruise. The up side to all of this is that we were in suites and had "Faster to the Fun" so we were able to check in in the captains lounge away from the crowds and our rooms were available as soon as we got on board. We had our luggage with us so we were unpacked and at the bar by 11:30am.

Cabin U93

A few rough spots By: jnojr
I was really happy with the room. It's roughly twice the size of a regular stateroom, with plenty of room to spread out! The balcony had three deck chairs and a small table. The walk-in closet in small for a walk-in, but cavernous for a cruise ship :-) Jetted tub is very small, we'd have to have gotten very inventive to squeeze both of us in, and we aren't huge people :-) I'm 6'1" and my head barely missed touching the ceiling when standing in the tub/shower. And the priority checkin was HUGE... we got there pretty early, by about noon, and wouldn't have had a huge wait, but we got our cards and were in our room within ten minutes. Lots of storage and counter space in the room. There's a mini-fridge which was empty... another review mentioned the fridge being "well-stocked", but it was just a place to store my gin, tonic, and beers. Basically, if you're setting sail on the Imagination and the money isn't an issue, get one of these rooms, and you'll be very happy!

Not a good experience By: Jenavi4
Would not recommend the Spirit Dining room, late night seating. Absolutely horrible service.

The Grand Suite was well worth the extra cash. The VIP status saves you a lot of waiting in lines, and the large balcony was something we spent a fair amount of time on. The space of the Grand Suite is almost a necessity with a pair of pre-teens. Service was great, as was the room.

Cabin U88
Mar 2012
Large spacious, beautiful room. Pretty quiet, although we did hear some noises every now & then. Not sure where it was coming from. I thought at one time the anchor was being dropped, but we were still moving & still a ways from Nassau. The balcony is decent size. Beautiful sunsets. Not too far from the elevators. Pullout couch is very comfortable to sleep on. Room gets very cold...I loved it. There are 3 air conditioning vents. My friends complained it was too cold and I only had one of the vents on.

Cabin PH1
Feb 2012
In the Penthouse By: 305fraggle
The ROOM: the room (PH1) of course is amazing BUT (you knew this was coming) the balcony overlooks....the life raft - so for an extra $1500 you get an obstructed view. Also - the living room and bedroom look out onto the Lido deck - which is lovely at sunrise - other than that - not so much. It is also very, very noisy - all day, and all night. They did warn us about it before we booked, so i am not complaining - just letting you know that they are NOT kidding when they say there will be a lot of noise. The jogging track is also directly above you - and apparently a LOT of people on the ship decided to go running at all hours of the day and night (starts at about 5am). Picture laying under a treadmill...that's the noise. The deck chairs moving (both on Lido and Sun) are outrageously noisy as well. Like i said - we were warned by Carnival. The room is about 1000 square feet: - Full walk in closet with plenty of hangers - Dual sink bathroom - Toilet is in room with tub €" bad design for a room that can hold up to 10 people (1 shower, 1 toilet). Even with only the two of us, there were times, in a room this size, there should have been a separate powder room. - Notice i said tub...its an old jetted triangle tub (its seashell pink, so prob original to the ship) with old worn out fixtures and a pitiful curtain. The shower is in this tub. The tub leaks when you run the shower. A lot - water everywhere. Not a good design, and you must climb OVER the edge of the tub to get in - not good on a moving vessel and a wet floor. - Living room - very nice - flat panel tv (although ours was on the fritz most of the trip) - Bar - great area with small fridge - Sitting room - nice but moderately uncomfortable furniture (all-weather type material - odd) - Bedroom - true king bed (not two pushed together) so triple points for that. Nice TV, but tv remote when in bed is too far from TV to work properly so you have to move forward or get out of bed for it to work. - Blackout curtains truly keep out the sunlight in all rooms - The carpets totally need to be replaced. They are covered in every room with multiple stains, to the point I would not walk barefoot in the room. The Pool: The pool is small for the amount of people on deck, especially on a sunny sea day. Add to that pool a ton of children and you have no pool for adults. I watched as children splashed, kicked, shoved, jumped on and banged into adults just trying to get in for a dip. The water is chilly (not heated).

Family Cruise 2011 By: chinchuwan
Cabin U90. Large room with a king bed, sleeper couch, chair and footstool. Had huge counter space and a bar area with a mini fridge. Lot of drawers in the room, but also has a large walk in closet with more drawers and ample hanging space and hangers. There is a safe in the closet. Bathroom has big counter area, drawers underneath and a hair dryer (plug for curling iron in hair dryer). Has a large jacuzzi tub and shower. Good location close to stairs/elevator. Didn't hear much noise - Balcony is quite large - with two chairs and a table.

Cabin U-84
May 2011
Imagination is GREAT! By: JB Murray
Our suite, U-84 was, in a word: Perfect! The balcony was wonderful, the cabin was large and comfortable. We slept like babies in the large bed, the sheets and blankets were always clean and fresh. The walk-in closet was great and the bathroom was well stocked, the shower-bath-jacuzzi combo was a treat. The cabins were quiet, no outside noise could be heard. Room service was available, but we never used it. The small fridge was well stocked.

No iron which was a bummer as well as a weird hairdryer that took a while to dry my hair. Whirlpool tub was hard to get in and out of. Closet was big and well lit. Clean room. Great service! Loved the towel animals!
