Bad cruise

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

Don't go...food bad..cruise director annoying and entertainment poor...the only thing good about this cruise was the housekeeping.  Save your money go on a real cruise line.  Even the shuttle driver made us fear for our lives...take royal or Norway... carnival cruise's are bad.

My first cruise experience did not meet my expectations.

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

The formal dining crew (Rico, Xz, and Mohammed) were the best!  Shout out, too, goes to Kevin, our steward, who was very attentive to our requests/needs.

Since this is an all inclusive cruise, the carnival should consider making food, some if not all, accessible at ALL times.

The ship smelled horrible.

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

I really did not enjoy being on this ship and couldn't wait to get off. I felt like the cabins were so muggy and humid. Our cabin also had a funny smell every time we walked in. The rest of the ship smelled like cigarette smoke too, espcially the common areas. I do have to say the service for our rooms was great, Ida was very sweet and attentive. And we really liked our Waiter, Christopher, he was so sweet and nice and brought us everything we needed even though the food was just ok. In all the service was great they all did a good job. It was the ship. Way too old and run down. And I felt like it smelled like smoke everywhere I went. I would decribe it as a casino feel. Our excursions were great too. Buying excursions saved our vacation! At the end of the day we were pretty bumed that we always had to go back to that ship. The food was just alright. Mediocre is the best word for it.

carnival experience

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

This was our first time for cruise, and it was a good experience. If my friends were there together, it might be better. Next time I would come with my friends and families.

We enjoyed a lot Animal towel making time and walking on the ship.

I wish hot tub water temperature is higher, it was warm.

Doug Williams is Funny!

The hamburgers are great. Best I've eaten on a ship.

Not enough single woman though. I didn't get any girls which is new. And the pumpkin soup is GOOOOOD!!! They need to play more reggae. Not any hippie stuff.

Awesome Cruise!!!

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

My husband and I really enjoyed our vacation cruise to Ensenada, Mexico.  Everything was perfect.  The staff is always wonderful, kind, and accommodating.  The food was delicioso magnifico!!!  Even the drinks, wine (we bought bottle of Mercato and it was to die for) and everything.  It was worth the money spent on this trip and we hope to do it again with Carnival.  This time I'd love to bring my grannies with me so they can experience the fun I saw all the other children had on this cruise.  I want to give a special thanks to our cruise coordinator, Violet , and her staff for the easiness (sp?) in preparing for this awesome vacation!!!Big Smile

Had a great time

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

We had a great time loved the martini bar and the comedy the best. Over all food was good but no longer free lobster. I bought some scratchers that I turned in the day we were leaving only to find out that they would not pay me for them. They said everything had to be paid out the night before. I feel that was poor customer service as I had paid for the scratchers and my purse had been lost the night before. Nervous

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.

If you can carry your bags on with you, I would recommend this over having the bags delivered. We like to do this so that we can unpack quicker and get out an enjoy the daily cocktail special and hit the Burger Bar and enjoy the delicious food.

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