Carnival inspiration, take 3

Sail Date: October 2011
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Tampa
Just got off the Carnival Inspiration for the third time. We had done a previous 7 night western and a southern on her. The ship is such a great layout. Not too big, not too small. The addition of the waterworks is great.

Since we were traveling with our 3 kids we originally booked two interiors but were upgraded to a grande suite for just a few dollars more and jumped on it. The balcony was great, bathtub was a huge blessing and the extra space was wonderful.

Was supposed to go to Grand Cayman and Cozumel but could not tender in Cayman. Port charges were refunded but we got to Cozumel at 5 p.m. the night before we were originally slated to get there. Where was great since we had a night in cozumel. Kids in camp carnival and mom and dad in Fat Tuesday. We had the cmp phone so that they could contact us if any problems. Camp said phone might not work but it did.

Camp carnival staff was wonderful. This was the first time we used it and my son was More pissed if he was late or missed something. Cannot wait until the littlest turns 2 so he can go.

Staff was amazing as always. Everyone does such a great job and they really make such an effort to make your vacation super. Especially with the kids. Thanks to Tanis and Alaina in the Brassiere for going above and beyond. Cannot thank you enough!

My suggestions to carnival which are not complaints. Maybe some sort of divider in the suites. Curtain perhaps. Also it would be great if you could only put lights on in 1/2 of the room. You can put outside lights on, inside lights on or bedside lights but in the suite I woul like no lights by the sofabed or king bed (if that makes sense). Less
