Our Inspiriation Experience

Sail Date: August 04, 2014

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Oceanview

Our cabin was kept neat and clean!  One outlet is not sufficient in room for 4 people.  Outlet in bathroom did not work for hair dryer.  Mardi Gras dining room was an experience in itself, first getting to our assigned table and then being asked numerous times who we were by three different waiters, quite annoying try to get our meals!  We did not return, ate at buffet rest of cruise.  Suggestions, if one venue open i.e. Pizza, Sandwiches should be staffed better and more organized. Main buffet and salad bars should be roped off until staff had time to set up, people were using hands to grab foods while staff were in process of same. Disgusting!! More buss staff on floor, tables always dirty inside and out!  Hot buffets should have back ups ready to go to replenish empties!  Jewelry pricing not organized well, the timing and discounted items not in sync!
