My husband and I decided to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary in this cruise last week, and it was the most wonderful experience! Everyone on the ship was friendly, helpful and just wonderful to talk to...will definitely be sailing again!
The overall experience exceeded our expectations. Your staff was outstanding which is very critical to me. The only feedback I have is that the employee in the serenity Area on Saturday night (African American Female with braids) was not very pleasant and made our stay in that area unpleasant as well. Another guest even asked her if she was in a bad mood to which she responded with a brief "no". We asked her if there was anyone that would be coming around for drinks and she replied with another brief "yes". At no time did she attempt to go out of her way for anything nor did she offer an apology of any type. She failed and cost you the 5 star rating we would have otherwise given you.
We really loved your food! This is my 5th cruise and I really enjoyed your dining room service this time. Our waiter I Dewa Gede truly went out of his way to help us and to make us feel like royalty!!!! I also want to thank Putu, our housekeeper, he was excellent too!
Our cruise was very good overall with the exception of the beds. I was in V-36 and the trundle bed was extremely old that I had to use towels under to avoid falling off. Putu was very kind and gave me second mattress, so I could sleep better. The regular bed also was old and hard which made it difficult to have a good night sleep. I really hope you take this comment seriously and replace those beds. Thank you.
We had a lot of fun doing excisions and relaxing on the boat. I was told about how much there was to do on the boat, but I did not find it overwhelming with options. I wish there was more entertainment on the cruise ship.
My husband and I can't say enough about this cruise. Everything was so perfect. This is all due to the Carnival Cruise Inspiration staff. From the servers to the baggage men, who were so courteous and helpful. The food was excellent, and plenty of it. We enjoyed every day.
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%!!!
I was looking for a quick, relaxing getaway and unfortunately this did not live up to that expectation. There were so many unruly children on board whose parents just let them scream, and roam the ship without supervision, that any adult that was on the ship to relax and enjoy its amenities didn't have a chance. The very small 21 and older serenity deck was always packed you couldn't find a chair because of the number of people looking to escape the same thing from the rest of the ship. Catalina is a beautiful port, however, Ensenada offered nothing really of enjoyment or relaxation as many other ports of call do. And unless you are very much into the Vegas type lifestyle, the ship really doesn't offer anything but. What happens to those of us who live in Vegas and deal with the casinos and the clubs and just want to get away from all of it for a little while? I was hoping that the ship offered other things to do besides the nightclub life and casinos and kids activities. We did enjoy the comedy club that we went to one night of the trip. If you are looking for a relaxing getaway with quick but beautiful ports of call, this is not the cruise for you.
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.
