We were impressed with the quality of the food aboard Carnival Imagination both at Lido but especially in the two dining rooms, Spirit and Pride.
One evening the appetizers included shrimp cocktail, Italian wedding soup, salmon cake and flatbread with bbq chicken to name a few.
Also each evening there is listed "Rare Finds-- food you always wanted to try but haven't yet dared"
One evening it was frog legs, another escargot bourguignonne.
Entrees included penne mariscos, chicken chow mein or jerked pork loin and from the grill Salmon fillet, chicken breast, grilled beef tenderloin or pork chop.
The service is, without question, five star since most of the waiters and culinary staff are true professionals.
Our Waiter, Miguel, who is from Costa Rica, is typical with some 20 years Carnival service.
Maitre D' Sameer at the Pride Dining Room has been with Carnival 22 years.
Desserts included creme brulee, chocolate hazelnut cake, and coffee cream cake plus an assortment of ice creams.
Aboard we had the opportunity to renew our acquaintance with Hotel Director Guna Chellam and had our photo taken with Captain Antonio Durante.
We used the Pride Dining Room when ever possible but at Lido we did try their luncheon which features a different cuisine each day. The day we enjoyed lunch there it was French and most impressive and authentic.
