5 Night Western Caribbean (Tampa Roundtrip)
Sail Date: March 01, 2008
Ship: Carnival Inspiration
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple

I would still recommend this ship as the price is pretty reasonable and are therefore getting what is expected but the overall experience was not above and beyond expectations. The quantity of food is definitely not a problem but the quality was not as good as the other cruises I have been on. I would recommend this cruise for groups of people mainly in their early 20s. There is a club on the ship, Karaoke every night and of course numerous bars to make it fun for a group of friends as there are two full days at sea.

Food and Dining

Could offer more vegetarian options and the quality of the food was lower than other cruise lines I have cruised on.

Due to the younger mid 20s crowd on board, more activities could be provided for this group. There was enough to do during the sea days but options could be greater as the options may not be exactly what was had in mind on how to spend the day.

Service and Staff

Ship Quality

Smaller ship, kept very clean though. The interior of the ship was a modern design with lots of lights which looked very nice at night.

Cabin / Stateroom

Decent size room and very comfortable beds.

Beautiful waters and beaches!! Definitely go to Stingray City and swim with the Stingrays. At first it is very intimidating but the stingray's are calm and friendly. The snorkeling in the Coral Reef is also beautiful! Your time is limited in Grand Cayman so there isn't really time for relaxing on the beach plus an excursion.
Don't Miss: Stingray City

There are a lot of water activities offered but do the rough seas they canceled most of them. Going through the Yucatan Peninsula is a must do, including a visit to a Cenote where you can swim and snorkel, plus a visit to the caves.
Don't Miss: Cenote's through the Yucatan Peninsula

Pros: Bands on the ship

Cons: Quality of Food
