Ship Facts: Carnival Inspiration Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Inspiration Deck Plans
Great Getaway
Took an early flight from bay area on the morning of 1/13/12-flew into Long Beach Airport. We were at Carnival Port(Long Beach) and on the boat by 11:30am. It was the first time we ever got on this early.It was a breeze. We chose to bring on our own luggage with the allotted 1 bottle of wine per person. We went & ate (grilled Reubens very tasty)& relaxed in the sun a bit, then went to the room(inside U81)at 1:30 to drop bags. Room was ready & we met our room steward, I Made (pronounced Imaudie). Very pleasant, always smiling & took very good care of us over the next few days! We loved our inside room - it was quiet, dark & mid-ship. We did the Your Time Dining & liked the fact that we could go whenever. We had a table for 2 each time & got right in each night. The longest wait was about 5 minutes because we accidentally showed up at the same time as the 8pm seating one night. Food was good in dining room - but could improve, loved the chocolate melting cake, and we went to the omelet bar for breakfast each morning. A short wait, but way better than the eggs in the buffet. We didn't make it to shows this time except karaoke one night. It was okay with a few exceptional singers. Instead we listened to music in the Rock and Roll lounge and in Violins Bar. I treated myself to a martini each night (Violins) and Rahyu (pronounced R U)remembered how I liked them each night. Port day in Ensenada we took shuttle into town, walked around the shops and finally stopped at Pappas and Beer for a margarita & a beer & some people watching. It's a good little getaway when you can't go M-F!
