Ship Facts: Carnival Inspiration Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Inspiration Deck Plans
Great relaxing way to start a holiday
We flew in from New Zealand on Sunday and then set sail on the Inspiration on the Monday. It was supposed to be a nice relaxing start to our holiday in the States but really had minimal expectations, especially after reading some reviews here.

We checked in at Long Beach and were immediately given special treatment as I use a cane to walk-we were on board the vessel in about 20 minutes. Fantastic.

We went to our cabin to have a look and thought the size and cleanliness of them was first rate.

Again, I had read that the food was really average, however, we found it to be very good quality and nothing to complain about, in fact quite the opposite.

We did have a drama getting one of our bags delivered the first night and had an anxious time waiting for it to arrive but it did eventually, so no real worries.

The destinations themselves are really not the star of this cruise. Catalina was quite nice, Ensenada was a bit of a dump really but we had nice weather, it was warm, and we were on holiday.

Kids were not an issue on our cruise-we thought they would be but we had no issues.

Entertainment was a bit lacking. One of the comedians Jeff Big Daddy Wayne was hilarious, however we were at times left wondering what to do for a few hours, as nothing seemed to be happening or planned.

As a start to our holiday, it was an absolutely excellent experience and we had a great time on board for the most part. We also travelled on the Splendor a week later and we preferred this shorter cruise (I will review that one soon) as the ship carried a lot less passengers and the whole trip seemed more relaxed.
