Worst Cruise Experience EVER

Sail Date: April 30, 2012

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

Embarking was quick & easy, food was good although nothing special. As stated above, we didn't get much sleep as pounding from the galley went on continuously day & night ( on the 3rd day they did offer to change our rm to 1 deck below, no upgrade and not worth the move as same location for the rm. Lido deck had 10 missing windows & workers spent the whole cruise pounding on them-they repaired only 1 the whole trip but never the less pounded on the metal the whole time & removing more windows on the opposite side of the Lido deck. One jacuzzi on the adult Serenity deck was cold & they couldn't repair it leaving the other one so full of people we never could get in & the other jacuzzi's on the Lido deck were full of kids & families the whole time. When we first entered our rm (E143) there was trash & dirt in our shower & nasty smelly something in our toilet. The Maitre D was nice in the dining rm & Masabe at customer service was very cordial.

Pros: food

Cons: rude staff esp. on Lido deck 1st day, assigned rm under galley so punding day & night; unclean shower w/ debris & nasty toilet when we checked into our rm;1 jacuzzi on the Serenity deck was cold & couldn't be repaired & on the Lido deck they spent the whole cruise pounding on metal

Recommends Carnival Inspiration? No.

Ship Quality
layout of the ship was horrible. You had to take an elevator to a floor then walk to another one to get anywhere. Smallest ship we've been on. This was our 5th carnival cruise-all others have been fantastic. Not sure we will cruise via Carnival again after this experience and we have 4 more cruise we are planning for the near future.
Cabin / Stateroom
Service and Staff
1st day Lido deck the staff just about ran us over & were rude...we are not the only ones that experienced this issue, even in elevators they were rude, esp getting on 7 off the elevators they about ran over us.
