Ship: Carnival Inspiration
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple

I loved all of the accommodations the ship provided (comedy and broadway shows\, mini golf\, gym\, DJ\, karaoke\, trivia shows and plenty of food to name a few). However\, the pool area was much smaller than I expected and the time spent in Mexico was too short! It took just a few hours to get to Mexico but we spent almost two days on the ship on the way back! Don't get me wrong\, the ship is a lot of fun\, but to me it's equally important to truly see the locations.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
I personally was satisfied by the abundance and variety of food. Some things were too greasy for me but I'm sure others would love that.

The thing I appreciated on this cruise was not just that there were sooo many different activities and forms of entertainment available\, but that many of the activities consisted of things I would never think of doing back home but that I thoroughly enjoyed!

Service and Staff

Everyone was extremely kind and helpful.

Ship Quality

Overall it was great. The only cons I'd mention is how small the pool was and the hallway carpets and walls were a bit tacky.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
I was very happy with an ocean view. The only problem I saw was how crusty and dirty the edges of the window were\, but that's a small price to pay.

Pros: All of the accommodations on the cruise (comedy shows\, broadway\, mini golf\, gym\, DJ\, karaoke\, trivia shows\, etc.

Cons: Too short and not enough time in Mexico. It only took a few hours to get to Mexico but it took almost 2 days to get back!
