Nothing much new, except for the captain who has an attitude!

Traveled with children

We need a place to hang out as our house is fumigated for 3 days and we decided to take a 5-day cruise. That was our 5th time to cruise (4 with Carnival, 1 with Royal Caribbean) I can say that this whole Carnival Inspiration cruise experience was the worse of all! The vessel is old with not much upgrades, shows are short, no live band, not so much activities for teen age kids. All they emphasized on board was to sell and sell, booze, jewelry, paintings,souvenirs, photos, etc., etc! Crews were okay except for the captain who cut my kid while in the pizza line. He was rude and arrogant just because he is in-charge. That would be our last for the Carnival as we are looking a much nicer cruise line in the future. Never, never again with Carnival especially the one that docks in Long Beach, CA.

Port Reviews

Los Angeles

do not buy excursion sold on board the ship unless you like to spend extra compare to the price outside.

Catalina Island (California)

Spend time exploring outside close-by the port. But do not wonder in remote areas!


If you are taking public transportation, make sure to get info about the details.
