We just arrived this morning from a 5 day cruise on the Carnival Inspiration out of Tampa and our 4th cruise on the Inspiration.

If you never cruised before and are looking to cruise or just sitting and basking in the sun on deck this is the Itinerary for you. 5 days,

Ports of Call - Grand Cayman And Cozumel. We had a lot of first time cruisers and from what I heard they will cruise again, The

food was very good the entertainment was really good the comedy shows where very funny, The staff was very good and friendly-

our stateroom was clean and over all the ship was very clean.

But I have to mention this, Our biggest complaint is Music (LOUD MUSIC) now hold on, I go to the bars and lounges at night to party

this is not only a problem with Carnival all the cruise lines we have traveled on seems to have a volume problem in the following

areas, Buffet area especially at BREAKFAST while you are trying to wake up and down that 1st cup of coffee to kick start your day

and during LUNCH and DINNER.

No we are not party poopers find us on cruise some day we will have fun! On some of our cruises we have noticed loud music playing

with no passengers around and you ask yourself why is the music playing loud and no one here.

But now I must say this, The cruise we just did on Carnival the music in the Buffet area during Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner was controlled

to where you can hear and carry on a conversation in a proper manner, We are hoping this is not a 1 time thing but a good trend from

Carnival on all there ships.

Now if you have cruised on Carnival in the past or booking for the 1st time, I would like to mention 4 food items to try next time on Carnival.

1) Now on this one I've heard the comments, but it's FREE and that is the Sushi Bar made to order.

2) The 24 hour PIZZA.

3) The DELI Bar, Really Good SANDWICHES.4)

4) The best for last for the sweet lover in all of us. The CAFE DES ARTISTES a must try before your cruise is over. They have a 7 LAYER

Hello Zebra, Yes I plan on posting reviews after our cruise.

Our 27th cruise is next weekend, and this will be our first time on Princess.

Thank you for your informative review, scalise12. I'm glad you enjoyed your cruise. Hopefully, the next cruise won't have such loud music. I love music, too, but if it's over breakfast, lunch or dinner, I wouldn't want it too loud either.
