No inspiration found!

Sail Date: April 06, 2012

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Inside

The ship had lots of deferred maintenance ... and apparently, they needed to do all of it while we were supposed to be relaxing and enjoying some peace and quiet.

Pros: The water slides (although the water needs to be warmer than the ocean!)

Cons: Food, unheated pool, welding & ironwork being done while we were cruising, ......

Recommends Carnival Inspiration? No.

Service and Staff
Our dinner staff were exceptional. So was our stateroom attendant. Other than that, every other staff member was noticably annoyed if asked for anything.
Ship Quality
Iron-work, welding, painting and replacing windows poolside IN THE MIDDLE OF OUR CRUISE is not what we signed up for!
Food and Dining
The food was horrible (Denny's would get a 5-star rating if compared to this food). And the portions, unbelievably, were so tiny that we were laughing hysterically!
What entertainment?
Children's Programs
The kids-club was ridiculous. Every time one of our twins needed a diaper change, they'd call us to come to the room. They were crying because they hadn't been changed in so long and nobody was listening when they kept repeating "I need a new diaper. I have a poopy diaper".
Cabin / Stateroom
clean rooms and bathrooms; average size; incredibly hard beds and pillows the size of pin cushions.
