Ship Facts: Carnival Inspiration Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Inspiration Deck Plans
GrandKids First Cruise
Our 3 and 5 year old granddaughters were introduced to cruising on the Carnival Inspiration. We had been telling them that it would be fun and lots of pizza and ice cream available to eat. The 3 year old wasn't too sure about going on a cruise without her parents.

The girls were excited once they saw the ship. Arrived a little after 11:30 am and waited in line to get cabin keys. We didn't check in early near the Queen Mary and had to wait for the other 8 zones of people to enter the terminal before we got in. We were on board by 12:30 and went for lunch on the Lido deck.

About 1:20 pm announcement was made that we could go to our cabins. Get an oceanview cabin if you have young kids. They spent a lot of time looking out at the shore, sea, dolphins, seagulls, boats, etc. Both loved the pull down bunk bed.

The staff was great throughout the whole ship. I dropped my camera and someone turned it into lost and found. I had the camera back within an hour of losing it. Our waiter, Surin, was outstanding and patient with the girls while they were deciding what they wanted to eat.

The older granddaughter enjoyed Camp Carnival, family comedy show, and afternoon tea. The younger one wanted to stay with us and only went to Camp Carnival when they had face painting. Both liked the T-shirts they received from Camp Carnival on the last night.

It was a good first cruise for both of them.
