Carnival Imagination Cruise Review by lovetocruise39
- Sail Date: August 2012
- Destination: Western Caribbean
- Cabin Type: Interior
The pool is too small for that ship, my kids were able to go in for about 30 minutes the day the ship was in Cozumel because there was no one on board. We did the water slides, they enjoyed that. I just wish that all of the items in the water slide area worked, some items were broken.
Skip the cruise director sounded like a fun guy, but we only ever saw him a couple times (heard him all of the time). The assistant cruise director was always visible. The comedians were absolutely hilarious....definitely worth watching. The food at the buffet was great (except for 'France' themed day.) The kids loved being able to have ice cream whenever they wanted.
The full cruise day was fun, but for some reason there was no Waite staff on the lido deck at night like there was every other night. It also would have been nice if they would have done something on the last full day of cruising....but there was nothing... The ports were fantastic, just wish there was more time in Key West. There was only about 5 hours and did not leave enough time for an excursion and shopping. Cozumel was awesome, never made it from where the boat docked, the shops there were fairly priced. Wish we could have made it into the City but didn't want to chance not getting back to the ship in time. Both of my children were signed up for Camp Carnival and Circle C. The enjoyed going but they did not always stick to the schedule. My son was supposed to do Break Dancing lessons on the day at sea and they never had it.
Disembarking was easy but it took forever because those traveling on the ship cannot follow simple directions. all in all...it was worth the price but I would definitely sail on a newer ship in the future. The Imagination is definitely showing its age. The palm trees in on the Lido deck were never lit up at night and that was disappointing.
Key West was a blast, just wish we had more time to sight see and shop.Tons of shops with great prices. My daughter picked up 4 sundress for $20.00. We were also able to pick up the shirts that change color in the sun for $5.00 as opposed to the ones that are priced $25-$30 in Mexico or on the ship.
Awesome port...Can't wait to go back....so we can see the city. It was nice the day we were there because we were the only ship docked. Not fighting through crowds.
