Itinerary: cozumel mexico

We took our kids for the first time and they had fun for a first experiance. I felt a little more activities would have been nicer in the evenings. The weather the whole cruise was perfect & the seas were calm. I have to say for the price for a family of 5 during summer we got a good deal. Im not sure I would do the Imagination again but overall it was'nt bad. We have been on Holland America which is a little more upscale so its hard to except less. I would say this is a good ship for teens & tweens along with much smaller childern but for kids 11-14 not sure.

The food was'nt so great- We had stomach aches every day. We did have 2 dinners at the dinning rm that were very good. But the waiters were great!

The stateroom was perfect. The beds cozy rms were spacious. We were on the Empress deck in the back with a window. My kids had there own rm. Even when they were in our rm we had plenty of space. I though they were clean and pretty nice. A mini fridge and clock would have topped it off. Oh and rm service was on par everyday and night-

They had things to do but I would have liked more excitement during the day-

The keys- we just walked around seeing we've been there before-
Cozumel Mexico- we did the Deluxe Catamaran & snorkle with the "Furry" that was a BLAST!!! Very fun with lots to do & great crew- The price was cheap for the experience- my 11 year even snorkled.

The staff were all kind with smiles- I read bad reviews regarding this....not sure what people were talking about.
Some people also said in there reviews that there was a bad smell from backed up toilets are whatever.....welll we only had that happen on one day for a few hours and it went away. If anyone would have smelled it we would have since we were on the back of the boat.
Over all on a scale of 1-5 I would rate the boat a 3 star.
I read a lot of negative things before we set sail and I think people exaggerate. Have I experienced better- yes! But was it that bad NO-
Also the decor is a little vegas style but its a cruise what! It was not that big of a deal. Another complaint I read........people don't have anything better to do then look for a scuffed chair or what have you- lol go swim and have a drink!!
