We just got back this afternoon. It was so sad to leave the ship. The only thing that was good about leaving was being able to see our kids this afternoon.

Well we went to Grand Cayman and Jamacia(5 nights). It was a great time. This was our first cruise and we cannot wait to go on another one. Here is the long review of the trip and the Imagination. I hope it is helpful.

The Imagination is a beautiful boat. Very Clean, the staff is extremely knowledable and friendly. The food--oh the food was outstanding. I probably gained at least 5 pounds. In short we had a great time.

Embarkation was extremely easy for us but then we didn't make it to the port until 3pm(plane delays).

Our luggage arrived before dinner(we had a late seating which i would recommend, no hurries when in port).

Again all of the staff was very helpful. We did not make it to most of the shows but heard from our table mates that they were very good, especially the comics.

The band in the Shangri-la lounge(Dirt Poets) were great. Really nice guys to.

One thing don't forget your sun screen, we did good until the last day at sea, then i got burnt(but oh well).

Formal Night was a lot of fun, got some great pics


Debarkation was a lot easier than i expected. Didn't take long to get us off the ship. We were at the airport in plenty of time for our flight home.

Overall the Imagination is a great ship!!!!! Recommend it to everyone.

Grand Cayman

It was nice we did the Atlantis Sub, it was superb. Then we shopped the rest of the day. Don't go to Hell it is a waste of time and money for taxi ride.


Beautiful island. We went to Dunn's RIver Falls. This is a must if you go to Jamacia. It is great. We climbed to the top of the falls. Then we went to dolphin cove and did the dolphin swim, it was fun but don't believe it was worth the money paid for it. Of course you have to check out Magriativille, it is a lot of fun. Shopping isn't bad if you don't mind haggling over the price.

The only down side to the cruise is I didn't feel like we had enough time in port. But other than that it was wonderful
