This was our first cruise, so we didn't know what to expect! After a little confusion with where to go and when for the embarkation/life jacket "ceremony", we quickly adjusted to the boat's layout and laid-back attitude! The staff was great, the food was outstanding, and the overall atmosphere on the ship was wonderful! We sat at a table with 2 other couples for our formal dining, and we had a blast! The days at sea were great...we spent a lot of time relaxing on the adult only deck with a nice cold beverage. The off-shore days were great too! We had to tendor in Grand Cayman which was unexpected, but turned out to be very easy, which was a pleasant surprise. Then the winds kicked up and we had to wait a little while to disembark in Cozumel which was slightly frustrating, but nothing that could be avoided. All in all, we wouldn't have changed a thing!!!

Our shore excursion was cancelled due to the winds, so we ended up booking an all-inclusive beach resort trip instead. We had a great time, regardless! We had a few local libations, relaxed by the pool, and then headed back to do some shopping before getting on the ship. Definitely a lot of fun for the younger crowd!
Don't Miss: Playa Mia!

This was BEAUTIFUL!!! We were so impressed by the beach in Grand Cayman!! We just grabbed a taxi when we got off the boat and made our own excursion! We visited Hell, took some pictures, then went to 7 Mile Beach and just relaxed for a few hours. It was amazing! Then we headed to Margaritaville for some entertainment before shopping for a bit and heading back to the boat. I wish we would have had a few more hours here!
Don't Miss: The beach!!!

Pros: Food, staff, adult-only

Cons: Entertainment, not all-inclusive, only one pool

Recommends Carnival Inspiration? Yes!
