Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The most disappointing part. I talked up the great dinners to the other guests I traveled with. There was only 1 evening where there was an excellent choice of Prime Rib and Lobster. The other evenings, the same food was available on the buffets.


5 out of 5
Probably the best part of the cruise was the entertainment. Two great shows as well as two very funny comedians.

Service and Staff

Very entertaining and friendly staff. Answered all of our questions we had.

One of the cleanest ships I have been on with Carnival.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Windows were filty, I booked an ocean view room to be able to see the water and to enjoy the view, yet the windows were so dirty, it was almost impossible to see out of them.
5 out of 5
Great port. Beautiful views of the water and very accessible shopping just off the ship.

Pros: The ship was very clean and the staff was very professional and friendly.

Cons: The inability to go to the Cayman Islands due to Hurricane Rina. Not the cruise lines fault.

Recommends Carnival Inspiration? Yes!
