5 Night Western Caribbean (Tampa Roundtrip)
Sail Date: October 17, 2011
Ship: Carnival Inspiration
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 6 years ago

We booked our cruise with another family and were assured we would be seated together in the dining room--we weren't. Asked for the maitre d's help and he was useless, bordering on rude. There wasn't a private restaurant on board so to make up for it, Carnival offered "Chef's Table". A $75/person upgrade including a private tour and dinner for 12 people with wine pairings. On a ship of 2500 people, they couldn't get 12 people to pay so the event was cancelled. The cruise was cheap and so were the guests.
