5 Night Western Caribbean (Tampa Roundtrip) Sail Date: August 23, 2010 Ship: Carnival Inspiration Cabin Type: Inside Traveled As: Couple Reviewed: 7 years ago
This was a nice cruise, but not even close to being great! The ship was old but clean. There was only one pool on this cruise and it was jam packed every day. The cruise ships we have been on before had more than one and it was very helpful. The slides were nice but were closed for hours because the open wind of the ocean.
Food and Dining
3 out of 5
Dining room was nice but Lido deck food lines were never open. Only one side at a time. It made it difficult to eat quickly. They would wait until it was packed before they would open both sides. The other thing that was a pain is the ice cream machines were either almost empty and location was in a bad spot which made all the kids constantly running the into the dinning room. Other ships have them on both sides on the Lido Deck. When its hot this is a wonderful treat on the boat.

I have seen much better entertainment on other ships. Two days of cruise ship dancers, the singers were good but one night was filled with ship entertainment. Not good at all!
Service and Staff

One example was that my hair dryer didn't work in the plug ins so I went down to the salon and ask to use the dryer and they wanted to charge me $35 the same cost to wash and style. I thought this was bit much.

Everything was clean but old. We heard this was going to be dry docked soon.
loved the public beach where you could rent snorkle gear for only $5 and catch a cab for only $5 each way. Great savings and wonderful stay. Coral right off the beach lots of fish to see.
Don't Miss: snorkle at 7 mile beach
