Review SummaryWe were first time cruiser so we really didn't know what to expect except what other cruisers say on the reviews. Carnival Inspiration really inspired us to cruise even more! It is an older ship but the staff and crew were excellent. Most of the time everyone would say hi and were very polite. The dining area (ours was Carnivale) was nice and elegant.
The embarkation was fast and efficient. We had 5 fun filled days of the holiday weekend (FOJ) The debarkation was easier too. I am still an immigrant so they give you a special area to go to for immigration on the ship. It was easy and left the ship around 915am.
Our time to Grand Cayman was from 8am-2pm(830-9am actual and 130pm to depart) since we had to tender. We decided to just explore the port and chill. Went to Cozumel and we already pre booked a resort for us to enjoy the sun and relax. We had more time 11am to 8pm so everyone got to enjoy more drinks! The fourth of July celebration was really fun, line dancing, live band, games, etc. Overall, it was a good first time and definitely would love to go back for more. I highly recommend this ship!
