Carnival Inspiration

Sail Date: August 29, 2014
Ship: Carnival Inspiration
Cabin Type: Inside
Cabin Number: U24
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 3 years ago

Service was EXTREMELY slow, whether you waited for a waiter or waited directly at the bar.   Waited and waited for drink service at the pool daily.  Staff did not seem to pick up trash or empty glasses or bottles laying around at all times.  Staff was not energetic or excited to see you; seemed as if they were not happy to be there.  Dinner Service was EXTREMELY slow.  Had to wait for dinner table to be ready, 20 minutes.  Food was mediocre, bland.  Dinner menu was the same every night.  Had to take back food twice for cooking food at wrong temperature.   There are no specialty restaurants on ship.  Breakfast was same everyday, buffet style.  24-hour food service was pizza and sandwiches only.  Spa didn't offer services other cruises offer. Shopping was limited and poorly laid out.     

Nightclub was fun.  Gym had nice, new equipment.
