Carnival Inspiration Cruise Review by SherriTravels

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Apr 2017
  • Destination: the Mexican Riviera
  • Cabin Type: Ocean View

We took our 16 and 13-year-old on their first cruise. The Cruise Director, the service teams, the entertainment was all fantastic! And the food was really good! Our dining room experience was top-notch! We had a little bit of a wait for dinner one night, but it wasn't a deal breaker. Our waiter was so kind and helpful! Our rooms were comfortable (we had aft facing ocean views) and had plenty of room for all of our things. The only thing that would have been an additional 5th star - was more for the 'teens'; activities to do onboard vs. just going to a room to hang out and play video games. Our kids were never interested in chilling in that teen room. When going on Carnival next; think it will just be me and my husband... and we'll take the kiddos on one of the RC cruises with all the outdoor activities they offer (rock climbing, water parks, surfing, etc.). It's important to check out all the details ahead time and we didn't do that; we booked this 3 weeks before we sailed. Oh, one last thing to share - I've read a lot of reviews of people upset about the constant cruise line onboard salespeople pushing services and products on you... and I agree, this is so annoying! I did not get that on this cruise with Carnival. The upselling only came naturally as the conversation lend to it. Great job Carnival!
