Really Good Time

Sail Date: November 09, 2012

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Inside

The Carnival Inspiration ship was a lot of fun. I have never cruised this ship before and was never bored once. From the casino, to the gym overlooking the ocean, to the gigantic water slide, everything was much better than i expected.

Pros: The relaxed atmosphere

Cons: The insane prices and hidden fees

Recommends Carnival Inspiration? Yes!

Ship Quality
They were doing construction on the boat as we were sailing. There were a few times we were woken up by the construction.
Food and Dining
The buffet food is actually better than the dining room food. The dining room food was just ok. It was presented as a fancy meal\, but the food itself was not fancy in the least. The buffet food had more options and was cooked better
Cabin / Stateroom
Actually had zero problems with our room. It was bigger than i expected and was quite comfortable.
Service and Staff
There was no real going above and beyond. They were friendly\, but didn't speak the best English so there were some communication issues.
The entertainment quality was nice. Plenty of things to choose from. Was never bored once. And even if you wanted to take a nap in your room\, they had a choice of two (free) newer movies that you could watch in your room.
Children's Programs
We brought our 19 month old with us and there were zero activities for her to do. She wasnt allowed in the childrens program because you have to be at least 2 years of age. She wasnt allowed in the pool because she was not potty trained. She even wore Little Swimmers diapers and she was still told she could not be in the pool. But she still had a great time playing on the deck
