Sorry it took a while to post this, but I'm still trying to get caught up at work from vacation. Here's my quick cruise recap.
I posted a full recap on Cruise Critic, so if you want to read more, check it out here. This review has tons of pictures, including pictures of almost all the food we ate.
We sailed on the Carnival Inspiration out of Tampa. It was a 5 night cruise to Cozumel and Grand Cayman. This cruise held a lot of firsts for us. This was our first time sailing on this ship and also our first time sailing out of Tampa. This was our first time booking an oceanview, which was pretty awesome. This was also our first time going to Grand Cayman.
In Grand Cayman, we booked an excursion to swim with the stingrays and have a beach break. Swimming with the stingrays was one of the coolest things I have ever done. If you get the opportunity to do it, I highly recommend it. The beach we went to was called Rum Point. That was one of the most gorgeous beaches I have ever seen.
We didn't book an excursion in Cozumel, so we just walked around the port area and then headed back to the ship. It was awesome having the ship all to ourselves. If you're not a huge shopper or drinker, I wouldn't recommend spending time in port. There's not really anything to do. We were out there for about an hour.
We had an absolutely awesome time on this cruise. The Inspiration will be moving over to California at the end of this year, so this will probably be the only time we get to sail on this ship. She was absolutely fantastic and the staff was great. The group of entertainment staff was some of the best we had. Stephanie, the cruise director, was great and we hope to sail with her again soon.
Here are some pictures from around the ship:
