Great time

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Inspiration | Sail Date: Jun 29, 2015

The service from all staff was amazing and wonderful!! We don't gamble and the comedy was a little too crude for our enjoyment. Even our 24 year old Son did not enjoy some of the comedy nights. We were hoping for some additional entertainment or shows. The Pool was WAY too small! Yicks seemed like a kiddy pool. Other then that we had a wonderful time and the staff again gets' a 100%!!!

Great time. Good ATV tour, could have skipped the wine tour. Going to try longer next time. Didn't like being at anchor for the day at sea. Made me queasy. Loved casino.

Thank you Carnival Inspiration

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Inspiration | Sail Date: Jun 15, 2015

Our first cruise! A very memorable family vacation for my husband and I with our 3 boys! Very clean in all areas of the boat and we were everywhere. The staff was top notch, always respectful to everyone and friendly no matter what time of day it was. We felt saddened more to leave the staff than having to end our vacation. They ALL are very hard workers and it shows every minute of the day!

good time

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Inspiration | Sail Date: Jun 15, 2015

All in all we had a fun time.  My kids 17/15 enjoyed the teen OZ club, they pretty much we off doing "kid" stuff till 3-4am each day.  The ship was safe and I felt comfortable letting my kids run free.  The drink special "cheers" program was 49.95 per day, you must sign up for all 4 days and every adult per cabin must sign up.  You get 15 drinks and at almost 10 a pop it was worth it.  The food in the dining room was just average.  Serving size were small, although the server was more than happy to bring anything and as much of it as you would like. The entire staff from room to food to bar were all wonderful.  Catalina: parasailed that was awesome then we took a gold cart around for $40 for an hr.  Strongly suggest this great chance to see almost everything Catalina has.  Art auctions were great and for a reasonable price we had fun.

Family Vacation

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Inspiration | Sail Date: Jun 15, 2015

This was our first cruise together as a family and everything was fabulous!  Our room was comfortable and well equipped to sleep 5 people.  The food on the ship was delicious.  The excursions in Catalina and Ensenada were great.  The music and entertainment were also very good.  For anyone who would like to do a family vacation, this would be a good choice.  It was not too long or too short and we had something fun to do each day.

Thanks,

Gardner, Threats, Noor Family

Ensenada Cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Inspiration | Sail Date: Jun 12, 2015

First time Cruise experience was a good one.Happy Was not aware of the extra service charges that were billed to me at the end. 

Our Dinner table was in a corner and had no clue of what was happening in the dining room. Since we were a small group placing our table where there is some traction would have kept us active.

first cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Inspiration | Sail Date: Jun 08, 2015

While this was my first cruise it lived up to many expectations and fell short on several. Food, stateroom, people were great. Not a lot to do on the day at sea. Ensenada is not that great, but would have loved to spend more time in Catalina. Dining room was not fun because of table assignment. The buffet was good and wish the choices had been better as the outdoor grills were always crowded and the weather was not great.

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

Cruise Director

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