A great time.

Sail Date: February 01, 2009

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Oceanview

We went during spring break, so there were a lot of kids and college age students. Food was exceptional. Wait staff at dinner was wonderful with our 8 year old, made puppets and made her feel special. Truly a wonderful family experience.

Pros: The food was great. Many kids programs.

Cons: Lack of space around pool.

Recommends Carnival Inspiration? Yes!

Food and Dining
Our older daughter loved the chocolate lava cake and had it every night. Our youngest had pizza for lunch every single day. Lots of choices for everyone.
Cabin / Stateroom
Plenty of room in such a small space.
Enjoyed all shows. If you like to be kept busy, they have stuff happening all the time. You can chose how busy you want to be.
Service and Staff
Most staff was friendly. We have had friendllier room stewards on other cruises. Took him 3 days to get us the right size life vest. Some times we would call and he would never show.
Ship Quality
A little dated and needed spucing up. Ship was going into dry dock after our cruise and probably needed to go before hand.
Children's Programs
Lots of activities for all ages. Never saw our middle child. Made friends the first day and was kept busy with activities the entire time. She had a blast. For our oldest who wasn't into the clubbing scene, needed some other alternatives, but had a great time anyways.
