We are taking our first cruise on Aug 16th on the Imagination. Anybody with information about the ship and excursions (Key West / Cozumel) would love to hear from you. Also anybody who is sailing the same time.
We just got back today from the Imagination ( wish we were still on her!) We had a great time. We didn't take an excursion in Key West, because we live in Florida and have been there many times. There are a few to choose from. One is taking the tour by tram. It takes about an hour and a half. Alot of information. We just walked around and shopped. Most of the stores open at 10 am.
Cozumel was the greatest! There are a number of tours to go on. We chose to go snorkeling on a 65 ft. catamaran then go to a private beach party. The magaritas and beer were flowing freely, all included with the price. That will take about 3 1/2 hours. Well worth it. After that we went shopping in town. Great buys! Your Cruise director will give you all the information you will need to go shopping and give you all the deals he knows about.
Thanks for digging up info on the Imagination. We are also sailing on August 16th. This will be my second cruise and my companions first. We are both very excited. My first experience on a Carnival cruise was excellent. From the research I have done and people I have talked to, the best thing to do is to explore on your own as many of the excursions don't show you the true beaches and scenery of Cozumel. I picked up a few books at the library that have been very helpful.
Cheers to wonderful weather and even better sailing,
my boyfriend and i are going on our first cruise on imagination on the same day. we have researched a lot on different sites.
the things we have been tipped on are that drink coupons are more efficient to use and that going on your own excursion is sometimes cheaper and more fun. we are looking at going snorkeling at chakanaab park in cozumel which is about a ten dollar taxi ride.
