September 2014 - Carnival Inspiration to Mexico
This is a first cruise ever for me. I did regret not having taken it earlier. It was a 5day-4night cruise and it was just long/short enough for a beginner like me. The staff was very professional, beyond any expectation. I can't help but thinking this is like a vacation in a moving many_star resort hotel. Every where was clean. Our room was constantly serviced (new sheets, towers, cleaning, etc ... ) many times a day. That made the room fresh/new as when we just moved in. Food was good. There were buffets (of various flavors) for someone who prefer the self-pace relaxed atmosphere. Or the dining room for others who prefer a more formal atmosphere. There were enough of activities on board to get you going: gambling, shows, fitness, dancing, swimming pool, mini-golfing, etc ... And the (cruise) price was very reasonable ... or simply inexpensive for some lucky dudes who could get a rebate/sales. Ourselves, we got a free auto-upgrade of our cabin ... Thanks Carnival (((: ... we appreciated it.
One advice: Don't go there by yourself. Rather bring along a love one, some one you wanna share good moments with ... a husband/wife, a fiancé, girl/boyfriend are highly recommended. The lovely setup of the cruise will bring you even closer ... iThink !
