Nice cruise

Sail Date: August 19, 2010

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Family w/older children

Room Type: Suite

This is a nice cruise to take for a short trip for people with children. It is not a cruise for older people since kids make a lot of noise and the young adults do a lot of drinking on board. You can hear people running up and down the halls during the early morning hours screaming and laughing after having too much to drink. The grand suite we had was very nice and it was kept very clean. The staff was very nice. I would prefer a ship with more choices on places to eat. We did have a light out on our balcony and one on the dressing table that was not repaired while we were there. The shower would not turn off so I had to fill the whirlpool from the shower head. The staff said it had been repaired but it was not during the time we were onboard. There is ample storage in the grand suite as well.

Pros: The staff was always cleaning and dusting.

Cons: Whirlpool was not working and was unable to get anyone to repair it.

Recommends Carnival Inspiration? Yes!

Food and Dining
One does not take a cruise like this for gourmet dining. The food was adequate with several choices.
The entertainment was not the best. The afternoon teas with piano was nice.
Ship Quality
Even though the ship was not new, it still was in good shape due to the care that had been taken. The staff was exceptional in dusting every corner of the ship as well.

Cozumel, Mexico
The Chankanaab Park near Cozumel cost $16 or $17 per person plus about $50 for a taxi and for a family, that is a lot of money. It is a lovely park though. Cozumel is very touristy now and the sales people hassel you to go inside and buy something when you walk along the streets.
