Great time

Everything was great and we all had a good time on the cruise. We had the Cheers drink package. The margaritas were premixed and to acidic but the beer and wine was just great.

ENSENADA

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Inspiration | Sail Date:

Overall the cruise experience as great, just not a big fan of Ensenada.  Food and drinks were very good.  Bartenders and overall serviced was excellent.  I would definitely do a quick 3 day to Mexico again just for the cruise.

Bump in the night

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Inspiration | Sail Date:

The overall experience was good except for every night when we went to bed there was loud banging and bumping sounds coming for a storage room above us.  I talked to guest services on three separate occations but they never cared enough to solve the problem. We where woken up numerous times a night all four nights. Guest services said they were sorry and gave us a small discount but I wish they could have solved the problem. No rest at sea.   Don't book room e152

Great service, disappointed with Zika

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Inspiration | Sail Date:

We loved our cruise experience, however we didn't realize that the area was going to was affected by the Zika virus, and since my wife is pregnant that really limited our possibilities.  It was great other than that though.  Can't wait to go again!

Mexico Cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Inspiration | Sail Date:

It was nice, but to many people (lines everywhere and pool and spa areas always full when the sun was out), and the food could have been better. Service was 5 stars.

Nice for a first time

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Inspiration | Sail Date:

It was a pleasant experience. I never got the towel creations, not once in my cabin so.. that was a downside... I believe it is only for more expensive decks. Food was really good, ports were ok, especially Mexico. Personally that should not be cruise port.

good short vacation

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Inspiration | Sail Date:

Everything is set to make us experience a fun and restful days on the ship. Casino is larger than we expected, good selection of machines and tables. Food is great and plenty. Night time comedy theatre was reasonably good. Pools are small, not enough for the ship that size. staff is friendly and knowledgeable.

Like going to a Carnival!!!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Inspiration | Sail Date:

It was one of my best vacations  ever!  There was so much to do.  The ionithermie treatment I had in the spa really made my curves show up (besides losing inches).  2014 I took my 1st great cruise on Carnivals inspiration; I had no Idea it could get better.  And I still haven't done everything you or the ports offer that I want to do.  I could not be in the Studio 54 show & still go to elegant  dinner night is why not all 5 stars were given.  I had so much fun!  I sure hope I can go again!   .

My cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Inspiration | Sail Date:

great service a bit pricey on the cocktails

It feels like the ship is always after you to spend more money on pictures drinks etc.

and it feels a bit uncomfortable at times

On the final day you can go to the lido buffet and have breakfast while waiting to get off the ship. if you take your time and have breakfast and get off the ship at about 10, quicker through customs and parking lot. You do not feel like your getting the bums rush to get off the ship.

on the last day, we waited to the very last minute to exit off the ship and avoided the crowd.

If you go ashore, go early, do not wait til 10:00 AM to get off the ship.
