5 Night Western Caribbean (Tampa Roundtrip)
Sail Date: May 31, 2010
Ship: Carnival Inspiration
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 7 years ago

The ship was immaculately clean and well-kept. Repairs were done immediately on anything that needed to be fixed. We would take this cruise again, going to Cayman and Cozumel was a real treat, with two sea days for relaxation. I would book private tours since the ones booked through Carnival were crowded and overpriced for what you got. Captain Marvins in Cayman was awesome. Some of the people in Cozumel were cranky at the stores and in the ship excusion line. I wouldn't want to go to Cozumel again, but Cayman was amazing. The staff on the ship did an awesome job of taking care of every need. Lots to do on the ship at all times, which the kids loved.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The food was really good. Lots of unique things to try, some of the food was really different (we would not normally ever eat escargot).

The ships shows and activities were so much fun!

Children's Programs

5 out of 5
The kids programs were great, a wonderful ship to take given that they catered to very specific ages such as young teen and mid-teen years.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Our wait staff at our dining table went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable and well taken care of.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Ship could use another pool or two, the ones on deck were so crowded you could barely move.

Cabin / Stateroom

Cranky store workers and excursion organizers kind of left us with a bad taste for this over touristy destination. Many vendors wouldn't barter either, which was a negative when we were told that they would give us a deal.

Captain Marvin's was the best - book via the web.

Pros: Loved the service and the Itinerary

Cons: Didn't love the cruise booked excursion to Cozumel
