first time cruise

Sail Date: April 07, 2008

Reviewed: 9 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Inside

Went on our first cruise. Staff was wonderful. Cabin crew to kitchen staff all very friendly, went out of way to assist. Cabin accomindations appropriate, loved the towels shaped into animals on bed in evening! Extra charges on ship (ie tylenol) was very expensive and charged to room account. Pool area was very crowded, even at 8am. Alcoholic drinks served at 9am! Seemed like a lot of under age drinking allowed but they wanted to remove my 17 yo son from an R rated comedy show with me attending with him. Grand Cayman needs a port to dock to. Not ferry boats to cart us over. Islands were repetitive. All selling same things and begging for you to come to their shops

Pros: the weather

Cons: the crowded pool area, excessive drinking

Recommends Carnival Inspiration? No.
