5 Night Western Caribbean (Tampa Roundtrip)
Sail Date: October 31, 2011
Ship: Carnival Inspiration
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 6 years ago
The ship was older and small, but they had some nice events. We unfortunately had one person die after being evacuated. We couldn't go to Grand Cayman because of this incident. We had to medivac another passenger on the way back to Key West. This was no one's fault. The crew was friendly. They were repainting the ship as we were boarding.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The food has a weird affect on me on day one. The dining staff was great.

We went to a couple of shows. There were good aspects, but largely mediocre or lame. The games and family comedy shows were good. Would be nice if there were more options.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Great staff on all levels. Except for one person everyone was great. Took good care of us, especially our cabin staff.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
As mentioned it's older, but the try to maintain it. The miniature golf was simple, but not well-maintained. The ship was clean. We were impressed that they clean your room twice a day.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Our room was a comfortable size and we had large windows.

We went to a nearby museum that was education, particulary since we were the only ones there. The driver who gave us the free ride to town attached to our museum fee recommended a nice local restaurant off the main roads. Great authentic food at a reasonable price. We found some nice items in some of the stores and were able to bargain. You have to shop around.

Pros: We had a beautiful view of the sea and moon every day

Cons: The food was tasty at all the first day, except the freshly made pizza. It got better as the cruise progressed.

Recommends Carnival Inspiration? Yes!
