5 Night Western Caribbean (Tampa Roundtrip)
Sail Date: February 17, 2007
Ship: Carnival Inspiration
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 11 years ago

This was our first and only Carnival Cruise ever. The ship was in overall good shape. The staff made us feel like they had to go out of their way to accomidate our needs, like cleaning a stopped up toilet, providing us a frozen drink, and a no caring attitude when they ran out of food on the buffet. Thier were children running wild everywhere even where they weren't supposed to be like the adult pool. We had high hopes for this vacation and all I can recommend to anyone wanting to take a carnival cruise is rethink it.

Food and Dining

1 out of 5
food quality was poor at best. You were able to see the lesftovers being served the following day in different dishes. Like corned beef being used in Yankee pot roast, th3e same rice being served everyday, nasty overcooked eggs and so on. Our best meal was a sandwich at the sandwich counter.

Service and Staff

there we 3 staff members that stood out as positive and they were all ones that required more money. Bartenders and dealers in the casino. Everyone else made us feel like we were a chore
