About Carnival:

In a nutshell… we’re all about fun vacations at sea and ashore! A Carnival cruise features day and nighttime entertainment like stage shows, musical performances, deck parties, casinos and more. (Like what? Like waterslides!) We invite our guests to come as they are, and we make everyone feel right at home with comfy staterooms, attentive service, casual and elegant dining, plus a variety of bars and gathering places indoors and out. Guests enjoy this unique experience against the backdrop of some of the world’s most beautiful seaports.

​Ensenada is known as the Mexican wine capital because the large municipality that surrounds it produces ninety percent of the country's wine. The city is known for spearheading scientific research and is both a commercial port and port of call for cruise ships. 

Start your tour of the Coastal Boulevard and visit the port area and the monumental Caracol science museum and aquarium. 
Walk along the waterfront promenade to the square and admire the dancing fountains and local shows. Enjoy the Black Market, which offers fish and seafood and is home to various restaurants and shops.
Tour the traditional Riviera Civic and Cultural Center. See its beautiful architecture and enjoy the temporary exhibitions by locals and artists from elsewhere in the country that present their works in a natural and relaxed environment.

Head towards the picturesque Primera street, where shops, restaurants, and bars are found. Stop by the traditional Hussong's cantina, which is famous for being the birthplace of the margarita. To whet your appetite, ask for a traditional fish taco or a hedgehog tostada at any food stall. Reserve the afternoon to tour some of the wine cellars that offer tastings of their products.

You can use the passport card to reenter the United States at sea ports of entry from Mexico, Canada, Bermuda, and the Caribbean. However, if you are not able to return on the cruise ship, you will still need a passport book to fly back to the United States.

Carnival Inspiration®

"All Carnival ships inspire guests to have a great time and a memorable vacation, but it won’t surprise you to learn that the inspiration for Carnival Inspiration… was nothing less than inspiration itself!

From the moment you step aboard, you’ll realize that this isn't just a cruise ship. The Grand Atrium isn't just a room with a high ceiling — it’s a place of high art. Your dinner at one of the two main dining rooms is more than just a dish in front of you — it’s the result of our chefs’ culinary creativity. And the Paris and Candlelight Lounges aren’t just rooms with some seats and a stage — they’re spots for our performers to transport you to another place and time.

For inspired food, fast, transport yourself to the BlueIguana Cantina, home of freshly stuffed tacos and burritos. Or if you’re more in the burger mood, try Guy’s Burger Joint, where they weren’t just inspired by Guy Fieri… they were designed by the guy himself. For the adults, there’s RedFrog Rum Bar, BlueIguana Tequila Bar, plus the borderline-magical Alchemy Bar. And for the kid in everyone, there’s the truly sweet Cherry On Top."~Carnival Cruise LInes
