This ship was great! Everything was clean, the stateroom we had was a nice size. The food very good. We had the buffet for breakfast and lunch and ate in the dining room for dinner. this worked well for us. Camp Carnival had some wonderful activities that both my 5 and 8 year old really enjoyed. This gave the grownups time on the "Serenity Deck" which was nice, however, it would have been even better if one of the whirlpools had a bit cooler water - way too hot! This fitness center was nice and clean too. my only complaint for this ship was the pool. it is very small when compared to the number of guests onboard. my kids were never able to get in the pool becuase it was alwyas way too busy and lots of people drinking in it. Luckily, they were fine with the water slides. The mini golf was nice too. Overall, we had a great time and would likely go again.

Cozumel was OK. Prices are gerat compared to US, but the beach excursion we booked was not worth the money. the sand in the water was gross. your feet sink in about 6 inches. my kids did nto like it at all and they love the beach at home.

Pros: Camp Carnival

Cons: The small always crowded pool

Recommends Carnival Inspiration? Yes!
