4 Night Western Caribbean (Tampa Roundtrip)
Sail Date: November 25, 2010
Ship: Carnival Inspiration
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Singles/Friends
Reviewed: 7 years ago

The ship was an older small ship. The pool area was too small for the population and sometimes it was hard to find a lounge chair on the sun decks. The food in the main dining room was excellent but only average in the other serving locations. The rooms were small as expected but you don't spend much time there anyway. There were several lounge areas with live music and talented musicians. The shows were very good including the comics. The staff were not overly friendly in general.


5 out of 5
The live musicians were excellent and very talented and versatile. They moved between venues so that you didn't have to go to the same location to see them. The dance shows were very good and the comics were a nice addition.

Service and Staff

Ship Quality

The ship was small for the population. It was an older ship which showed in some of the common areas and rooms. The ship was clean and accessible.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
The stateroom was small but functional. The oceanview was a nice feature. The room had a vent that only supplied cool air. Sometimes we could have used a little heat to warm it up. The bed was 2 twins put together and were a little firm. The bedding was comfortable and soft.
5 out of 5
Cozumel was great and there were many excursion options. We went to Playa Mia and it had many activities included and a reasonable price. Although it was hard to hear the announcements for the buses to leave. It had a nice beach and the water was very clear.
Don't Miss: Playa Mia

Pros: The live entertainment

Cons: The pool and deck area was too small

Recommends Carnival Inspiration? No.
