Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The food is adequate, but nothng very special. The meals that are free are edible and forgetful. You have to pay an extra $18.00 for the "special" meals on the menu. The dinning crew has to sing and dance every night and they want you to sing and dance along. One night would have been fine, but it became obnoxious when evey night at dinner they wanted to make you get up and dance.

With only 1 pool on board, its not easy to get in and cool off when laying out in the sun. There were not enough options to dance with that significant other unless you want to go the teen disco.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The staff was incredible and very anxious to help.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
The ship was clean and the workers were excellent. The layout is a little clumsy and difficult to navigate.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Stateroom was excellent. The beds were very comfortable and clean.

We were only there for a few hours and you have to take a tender to the shore. there wasnt much time to do much.
Don't Miss: The shopping
3 out of 5
We decided to take a taxi to Chankanaab park and go to the beach on our own. What we did not know is that there is a $21.00 admission to the park. For our $42.00, we did get a mandatory life jacket that must be worn in the water. The shopping was plentiful and the weather was nice.

Pros: The crew was awesome

Cons: The food and activities

Recommends Carnival Inspiration? No.
