Looking at the Imagination for a quick get-a-way cruise in late April or May. Haven't been on Carnival in a long time. Been cruising Celebrity, RCCl, Princess, HAL and NCL. We enjoy all lenghts of cruises. Itinerary is what we are looking at for this one. Any information on food, cabins,( preference is outside cabin), shows and etc. would be appreciated.

Hi, we are booked on a 3 night Bahama cruise on 4/24 thru 4/27 on the Imagination. We took our first cruise this year on the Imagination in December, over Christmas. We had a wonderful time, which is why we are going again. I haven't been on any other Carnival ships and have not been on any other cruises, so I may not be the best source of information, but we booked the Imagination again, mostly because of price and dates.

 

Whatever ship you choose, I'm sure you will enjoy!

we're goin on the imagination 4/20-4/24-Key West and Cozumel. I haven't been on it yet so I can't really help, but I can tell you that the price is good, and from the reviews I've read and research I've done, it looks like a great ship! I am so excited!

The Imagination thread caught my eye.....we're also on the 4/20 sailing and I just had to say "W00T!"

Just off the imagination late January. I was on the valor in september. I loved the imagination because of its size. I feel it was very easy to get around and to figure the layout. We always stay towards the front of the ship, this time had port holes but historicaly we stay interior so we can afford to sail more often.

My dh is not a show lover so we did only go to one. I think they are awesome though. They keep me quite entertained and I love the atmosphere.

The new water park makeover is really nice it was fun to layout back there and watch the few kids that were on board just have a blast. What a great spot for parents.

The adult serenity deck was very well monitored. My only dislike of this area, is that it has other decks that sort of u shape around it and kept a lot of it shaded. Now for the non-sunny but love to lounge person aka dh it was perfect.

OOH that sandwich bar, best ever and hardly busy.

Ice cream GREAT AS USUAL...

Pizza this time was just ok. but usually is our favorite.

No fruit punch. I think this was elminated fleet wide (but i may be wrong)

Room steward was great

Everyone was friendly.

Stores were well stocked.

Wait for that last day t shirt 10.00 sale if you are looking for good wearing and great washing tshirts

Miami Vice Drinks were the best ever.. (is there ever a bad one)

pool bar either side was very friendly.

Lido deck set up is nice.. the stage is covered with a canopy type thing makes it so nothing would really be cancelled as such. Lido deck band played quite a bit..

No large tv screen

There are chairs one up from the lido that are like ratan with a cushion on them, sit up style chairs, not loungers, we spent a lot of time there people watching.

Great salad/fruit bar..

Loved the steak fries

hmmm im trying to think of everything ;)

Casino was tight as usual.

 

I booked it again b2b for september and might add 3rd leg in a month or so... LOVED IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

put it in a foil cooler bag,, like the sams or walmart style ones... taped my room luggage tag to the side.. zip stripped it shut and left it with the porters with a 5.00... worked like a charm.. if it didnt work we were out 20 bucks so either way it was all good ;)

also had the 12 pk coke in there.. so it was too heavy to like toss around like a suitcase would be.. if u put them in a suitcase they would be all shaken up and settled..
