Awesome quick get away!

Sail Date: October 01, 2007

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

My husband and I found this to be a very enjoyable quick get away for short money. The staff was always friendly and attentive, We did notice the waitstaff on deck is slightly more attentive to the younger partying crowd, but it didn't really bother us to occasionally have to get our own drinks. This is our 5th cruise with Carnival and did agree the ship could use some updating but overall there really was nothing to complain about. Planning a girls weekend in May on this same ship! Can't wait!

Pros: everything overall was terrific!

Cons: definately older ship, some things slightly outdated but well maintained

Recommends Carnival Inspiration? Yes!

Ship Quality
Ship was smaller than other I've been on, but still massive, layout was typical of Carnival's ships, but easy to get around.
Food and Dining
Food was decent, plenty of options, if you go hungry, it's you own fault!
Cabin / Stateroom
Outside staterooms are decent, bathrooms not as small as you would think. Clean and comfortable, loved our location on Empress deck!
Service and Staff
Again, never had a problem, when we asked to have the housekeeping tip removed from our bill, (we pay cash directly to the Maid) they were friendly and didn't question us at all.
Again, for a smaller ship, entertainment was good, loved the disco and live music, always found something to do.
Children's Programs
Didn't have children with us this last trip, but they have loved all the activities in the past-best thing we did was to pre purchase soda fountain cards before we left port.
