A Great Time

Sail Date: December 01, 2006

Reviewed: 10 years ago

Room Type: Oceanview

This is definitely the fun ship. The crowd skewed very young and out for a good time. The social directors were great - there were all kinds of hokey but hilarious activities. The food was good and plentiful and there was a nice air of friendliness all around.

Pros: The Fun Atmosphere, the friendliness, the many activities

Cons: The food on the beach excursion

Recommends Carnival Inspiration? Yes!

Food and Dining
The food was very good, the service was excellent, and it was impossible to eat all that was available, including the midnight buffet, high tea, 24 hour pizza, made to order omelets, sushi bar, and made to order deli sandwiches. Occasionally the lines were quite long, but everyone was very good-natured.
Cabin / Stateroom
The cabins were a nice size,the rooms were kept clean, and the beds were very comfortable.
The social directors were fabulous. They had all kinds of hokey but hilarious activities like "Hairy Chest Contest", Battle of the Sexes" and "Who Wants to be a Millionaire." The casino was also large and very friendly. I loved all the tournaments they had, as well as the Bingo, for very reasonable rates.
I had the best massage I've ever had in the Spa. The gym was huge and very well equipped. I also took a very good Pilates class. The evening shows were exellent
Cozumel, Mexico
I went to the Beach Club for the day. Not so good...the chairs were molded plastic with no coverings, so very uncomfortable.The bottom of the swimming area was covered with huge sticks and rocks so that many of us came up bleeding. The all you can eat buffet was AWFUL. Cold and greasy Mexican something with hundreds of flies buzzing around. However, the open bar was great and the service was very pleasant. And we did have free use of any of the various boats available. There was also a nice pool with much more comfortable lounges where we all ended up.
Don't Miss: The shopping is good if you're interested in diamonds or other gems. Otherwise it's just the usual t-shirts and stuff with aggresive merchants chasing after you.
