::Cruise 2010::Key West/Cozumel, Mexico

I recommend a cruise to anyone. Even if you don't like to travel, in my opinion, a cruise is something everyone can enjoy. It is great for family reunions and girlfriend get-a-ways. I would even consider talking a 3-day cruise solo.
Cousin Dylice and my mom saw it advertised in our local newspaper and enlisted me as their guide. We took a bus from SC to Miami with about 50 other people from my hometown.

Overall, the trip was exactly what I needed. A week without emailing, texting, responsibilities or obligations. My only goal was to make sure my golden girls had a remarkable experience. There is something humbling and serene about being completely surrounded by the ocean. You have to acknowledge that there is something bigger than yourself. I used my time wisely and took full advantage of the steam room, gym, health seminars and private deck.

Carnival Imagination superseded my expectations. Everything was clean and operated properly. In my opinion, it was actually better than The Dream Resort in DR. Here are a few of MY pros and cons:

Cost. Very affordable.
Ship was tidy
Variety of activities. Even when ship was docked
A library
Each staff member had their home country listed on their name tag.
Only in Key West from 7AM- 2PM.
Only 1 pool and it was very small.
Gym wasn't 24 hours.
We had to catch a cab to the beach in Cozumel.
