first time cruisers

Sail Date: December 2009
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Tampa

We had no clue what we were in for..but i planned it a year in advanced..since it was christmas ..we got the best room on the boat...so they say...the beds are not as great as they descibe..our room was somewhat dirty..4 the 4 nights i looked at some soda that was spilled down a cabinet that was half wiped off...the water comes out shower pipes brown....the bathroom reminds me of a rv camper...beside that...the room is okay..as much as i paid..u think u could get a free soda...or water but no..its all extra...for a christmas cruise ..it didnt feel every holiday..good luck if ur a smoker...not many places u can smoke to relax...they didnt have the slides open for kids so the hot tubs and pool was all kids...some of the personal were moody..and not every helpful...but thats about all i can complain about...because nothing is prefect....it is a old boat..but there making improvments...the room service was the best ever..super fast and the food is soooo good..they do have something to do More for everybody..but if ur a reader bring a good book... Less

Cabin review: Carnival Inspiration Suite Upper

i stated alot about the room above..but after 2 days ..kids start running up and down hallways...having a balcony was a plus...plan on taking stairs alot..elevators are out of service alot..or really busy...

Port and Shore Excursions


we didnt book a excursion...we just got off boat and walked around the shops from the peir..the items are not badly priced..we didnt venture out of the plaza area which was really nice with fountains ,flowers, hammocks, small beach area..but no swimming really..the bathrooms were super clean...had one large margarita at the 3 amigos cost 20 bucks...the water is so blue and really clear..not much to do if u dont book something to do...
