June 2015 - 4 Night Catalina & Baja Mexico (Los Angeles Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Inspiration
My daughter and I had an excellent cruise, we were celebrating her 10th birthday. This was her first cruise and the look in her face just getting in the ship starting this new experience was priceless! Everything from facilities, to shows, to the service and the food was great. She especially liked the Kids club's activities which were a lot of fun. For me, it was a nice way to relax knowing that she was safe and having fun. The shore excursions were fine, but a bit pricey for the value. The water park is great for the kids and the serenity deck for adults is worth a visit or two. The spa is nice and the gym is spacious, however, the health workshops while interesting, were more a vehicle to sell their products, so be mindful of that and be clear with them since the beginning to avoid comments such as "you are wasting my time, you came to the workshop because you said you we committed to doing something and now you don't want to buy this treatment". Other than that, our experience was great and I highly recommend this cruise to first timers and/or families with kids (all ages!).
