Carnival Inspiration Cruise Review by katoboy
- Sail Date: January 2013
- Destination: Mexican Riviera
- Cabin Type: Ocean View
Unfortunately didn't anticipate the party ship atmosphere. Don't get me wrong, while we did enjoy ourselves for the most part, we think we should have selected a cruise with a more mature clientele. Loud and noisy. A rock band in every corner. Lots of young people got me to wondering if they check ID's in the bars and casino. To their credit, the ship does designate special areas for younger children, however I wouldn't recommend this particular (party) cruise for younger families. The bar and the extra loud band in the atrium area was a bit too much. I suspect these offshore casinos are unregulated.
In general, the food and the service were alright, but not even in the same ballpark as Holland America or Oceania. (They ran out of bananas on the second day.) The meat loaf was "mystery meat", and a bit chewy. The printer in the internet lounge was broken after day two, so we couldn't even print out our airline boarding passes.
Wouldn't book this one again.
