Cruise was just OK!!

Sail Date: June 01, 2012

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Inside

Big, impressive, lots of details Somewhat hard to navigate, easily get turned around. Clean. Helpful staff. Was able to help expidite entrance with handicapped individual, otherwise the lines were massive and chaotic. It was awful going through security, very rushed, very rude!

Pros: Ship size

Cons: Dining experience

Recommends Carnival Inspiration? Yes!

Food and Dining
Food only warm. Hurried wait staff. Always rushing us through the meal. Poor service in getting non-alcoholc drinks, very slow to non-existent in getting refills, especially without asking. Crude delivery of meals, reach across table and in front of us to set down plates, glasses, etc. Not always remembering who ordered what, wrong food delivered. Huge language barrier, staff not speaking or understanding english well.
Ship Quality
Handicapped accessiblitiy was great.
Cabin / Stateroom
Accomadating staff. Friendly. Talks to you by name, remembers your name and stateroom. Clean. Always ready. Fun towel animals.
Service and Staff
All except WAIT staff in dining room. Very helpful, if you seem lost or confused, willing to help out.
Poor water venue(s) - hot tub(s) overcrowded. Only 1 pool, but weather was cool anyway. Shows, comedy, bingo, casino, other entertainment....GREAT. Too many photo ops...very EXPENSIVE to buy!!. Pushy.
