Carnival Inspiration - Western Caribbean

Sail Date: November 2006
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Tampa
We sailed on the Inspiration on 11/06/06. We flew to Tampa the day before. We stayed at the Radisson Harbor Bay. It was nice, our room overlooked the bay. They had a shuttle that brought us to the port the next morning. Embarkation- This was very easy, we got there around 11:45 and we were on the ship by 12:30. We had lunch and lots of funship specials. Found our room and were surprised 2 pieces of luggage were already there, the others came shortly after. muster drill was boring but hey you got to do it. Dinner on the first night was good though my husband had to go back to the room after his salad because he was very seasick. The waiter boxed up his meal for me to take to him. I spent most of the first night in the casino, my husband sick in bed. He tried ginger pills but they just did not cut it. We were going through a very bad storm. The purser desk gave him some pills to take every 12 hours, they kicked in and he was fine by noon the next day. The food in the dinning room was More good some nights better than others.  Desserts in the avaunt garde were excellent, of course you had to pay for them, $2.00 for a huge slice of cake. We ate in the buffet for breakfast and lunch, both were good. The deli had great sandwiches but there was always a long line. Pizza was good.

Grand Cayman- We went seagrape beach. It was beautiful there.We just laid out and swam. After we walked around, and bought some souveniers.  Grand Cayman was ok, there was just not enough time. Cozumel- This was the best day of the trip. We took a cab to ParadiseBeach, $12.00, The beach was great, Food was yummy, and the drinks went down way to smooth. We had a wonderful time there. After we went to Carlos and charlies.It gets pretty wild in the and this was the middle of the day. We had a blast there. I did not want to leave.

Entertainment- Was ok. Could use some improvement. We did like the comedian though.

All in all we had a wonderful, we are already planning another cruise, only this time we will do 7 days and take our son.  We missed him a lot and the kids on the ship looked liked they were having so much fun. We will definitely sail carnival again. Less
