Would love to hear your comments, thoughts, suggestions for both the ship and ports. Also, are there any recent GS photos from the Imagination? I've looked but must not be looking in the right places.
Keep in mind that Imagination is a 70,000 ton ship built in 1995. So its old and small by today's standards. But it and its sisters of the Fantasy class were the big deals when they were new. We are retired so we don't take short cruises anymore. But we'd still sail the older smaller ships if they did do longer itineraries. But enjoy your cruise without comparing the ship to Disney. Or the RCL ship if it was a Voyager class or better.
DO the Conch train first thing in KW. Then you'll know your way all around the island to do whatever you want to do. Do the conch train on your own, not through the ship.
