Review summary

My brother and I decided to have a little adventure and have some time together to share. This was a perfect getaway.


5 out of 5
We arrived early to the terminal and had to stand in the "Early and Late" line. It took us about ten total minutes to be checked in. Since my brother is totally blind, Guest Services wanted to meet with him to ensure he was properly taken care of regarding safety. Everyone was amazing through this process.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The Carnivale dining room and Lido buffet restaurant were fine and had a large selection of dining options. We also had burgers at "Guy's Burgers." These were delicious!

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
My blind brother and I enjoyed a round of putt-putt golf at the top deck. He got extremely lucky and sank a "hole-in-one!"

We saw "Motor City" and a comedian on board. Both were excellent.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The room steward, Nany, did an excellent job maintaining our living space. Haijib, our waiter, was very helpful during meal service.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The Carnival Inspiration is an older ship, so the decor is somewhat dated. Every spot I saw was kept meticulously clean.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
The space is undeniably small, especially for two large people. That said, it was big enough for its intended purposes: sleeping and showering.

Ports of call

Long Beach (Los Angeles), California

5 out of 5
It was easy to get to, park for four days, and exit back home. What more could you want?

Catalina Island, California

5 out of 5
We enjoyed the tender to and from the dock, and really enjoyed walking about Avalon. The Casino tour was amazing.

We walked our luggage out and the process couldn't have been smoother.
