Carnival Inspiration, a Fantasy Class cruise ship, mostly does 3- and 4-night Mexico cruises year-round from Long Beach (Los Angeles, California). This ship is a great choice for those looking for a fun and affordable cruise vacation.

There are a bunch of great entertainment venues and activities available on every Carnival Inspiration cruise. For instance, there's a two-level show lounge where a great, live show occurs during each evening. Also on board this ship is a casino, full-service spa, fitness center, beauty salon, swimming pools, hot tubs, art gallery, photo gallery, library, duty-free shopping boutiques, as well as many bars and lounges.

As far as dining on a Carnival Inspiration cruise goes, there's always something to eat. Among the many options are the main dining rooms (where you can choose between Assigned and Your Time, open, Dining), Brasserie Bar & Grill (featuring buffets, as well as a pizzeria and made-to-order items), a rotisserie grill, and 24-hour room service.

While on a Carnival Inspiration cruise, your children and teens will benefit from Carnival Cruise Lines' fantastic age-based youth program. Camp Carnival is a full-filled area, with supervised activities, that was designed for 2 through 11 year olds to enjoy. Circle "C" is a hip area that's for 12 to 14 year olds, featuring dance parties, Karaoke, video games and late-night movies. The ship's teen club, Club O2, is for 15 to 17 year olds and is a 'round-the-clock hangout that's filled with great things to do, such as video games, music and tasty snacks.

Carnival Inspiration emerged from dry dock on February, 2016 with all new Fun Ship 2.0 enhancements! Upgrades include the addition of Blue Cantina, Blue Iguana Tequila Bar, Red Frog Rum Bar, Alchemy Bar and Guy's Burger Joint, as well as onboard programs like Camp Ocean and Seuss At Sea.
