At first I was skeptical to cruise on Carnival, but boy was I wrong. We all had a great time!! We had an outside cabin and the view was wonderful. We will definitely cruise with Carnival again.

The cruise director was great!! All of the entertainment was really good. They had a hairy chest contest and that was really funny. My husband entered a slot tournament, he didn't win but he had a lot of fun.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Each morning we were greated with "good morning" from the staff and that was realy nice. Most of them spoke good english and you could understand them. Very friendly ship!!

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
The ship shows some age but it is kept clean. Even the public restrooms are constantly cleaned. The elevators are small and a little slow but they still get you there.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Our cabin was always clean and she always made a cute little towel animal waiting for us. The bed was very comfortable, there were 3 of us in the cabin and we had plenty of room.

We did the Stingray City Safari excursion and loved it! By the time we got back there wasn't enough time to shop. Wish we could of had a few more hours there.
Don't Miss: The stingrays

Great prices on most things but you need to talk them down on the price. I noticed the sterling silver was very expensive there compared to the last time we were down there. We decided not to buy any this time. Our daughter did the new Dolphin Swim and Ride excursion at Dolphinaris. It is well worth the money!! If you love dolphins you must do this!!
Don't Miss: Dolphin Swim and Ride

Pros: Everything

Cons: Rough seas the last full day

Recommends Carnival Inspiration? Yes!
