A fabulous cruise!

Sail Date: February 20, 2012

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Oceanview

Although the ship was built in 1996 - it was refurbished in 2010. A little worn but a nice smaller ship. We cruised during winter break - so half of the people seemed to be kids. Refreshing to see that Carnival is trying to cater to families by having fabulous kid programs. So happy the ship wasn't full of drunk people as in past Carnival experiences. We almost didn't cruise on Carnival again because of the amount of disorderly drunk people. Loved the 5 day - 4 night - perfect for a quick cruise and great way for new cruisers to see if they like the experience. Very easy check in and check off of the ship. Recommend that you carry your own bags off so you can leave the ship whenever you want. The staff was exceptionally helpful since SouthWest lost all my luggage. Would highly recommend this ship to others.

Pros: food, service, entertainment

Cons: only a few balconeys - we were in a ocean view room - small for 3 people

Recommends Carnival Inspiration? Yes!
