Default Inspiration Oct 2, 2008 have a serious problem. Answers?

With my upcoming cruise this Thursday it coincides with the first game of the American League Division series with the Tampa Bay Rays. Do they show these games onboard the ship? If not I may have to stay home so I can watch it or walk down to Tropicana Field. I didn't know 6 months ago when I booked this cruise that the Rays were on their way to being American League East winners and on their way to the World Series. At least I will be back for that! 8)

Skymaster?? What do you know about the satelite TV onboard? ESPN? FOX Sports?

Oh and another thing, are the slides pretty smooth? I don't want to snag my new Speedo on the joints in the slide.

I also read on the website that inside cabins had two twins but outside had queens. I always thought they could put the twins together but I have limited experience on Carnival. Anyone can clarify that?

The sports bar will most likely have the games on and maybe your cabin TV as well. I dont know what network the game is on but there is a decent chance you will see it. I can top your dilemma... I booked a trip to Mexico in Jan and the first port of call is Acapulco.. that happens to be the day of the AFC and NFC championship games!! What was I thinking? All I had to do was look at the NFL schedule..

Yeah, what were you thinking! Of course you can't know if your team will be in it. It never even occurred to me the Ryas would win their division when I booked this trip. I can get tickets for game 5 if needed next Wednesday after I get back.

I finally can respond to Dave the Wave - oh my gosh! Tee hee, just kidding but considering I'm from central NJ where we have phillies, mets, yankees fans not to mention Oriole fans, etc. etc., and we're in Giants, Jets, Eagles, Ravens territory, etc. etc., you're right ....The Rays - oh my gosh! Good luck to them though! Maybe Carnival will let you push your cruise back a month - lol.

Actually I was on inspiration in may 2007, pre-refitting and they had one happening sports bar. I was cruising with a gf who happened to be a devout Cubs fan and tried to catch any game she could and then we cruised last October together and we were still trying to catch any games that were on be it baseball or football!

I have no idea about the sides but they should be pretty smooth. Yes, they will push the beds together for you. They usually already have them together when you get there, but if they arn't all you have to do is ask them and they will.

Dave,

My guess is that it depends if the Twins win the one game playoff they probably won't carry the games. If Chicago wins they probably will. That's because you have two small market teams going at it.

I'm hoping two small market teams go at it!!!!

Take care,
Mike (Twins Fan)

Dave - the sports bar should have the game. I doubt it will be on in your cabin. They do show a lot of ESPN - aren't the playoffs on TBS?

Yes, they are on TBS in my market. Don't know about outside or sat TV. I won't be sitting in my cabin anyway. Rather be out at the pool bar. The first game is Thursday at 230 and will still be in Tampa at that time.

Hey Dave,,,we've been out of town and just got back. Sorry I didn't answer your questions right away.
The others are right for the most part. I'd bet that you'll be able to see the games in the sports bar. They have a bunch of different T.V.'s, and show several different games all at once.
The slides are VERY smooth, and you needn't worry about snagging that speedO. It'll work just dandy. 8)
Every inside cabin I've been in, do have the beds that'll fit together to make a queen size. Some of the cabins have drop down bunks, but they fit into the wall, or ceiling, and shouldn't bother you if you're not using them. Have no fear....You're going to enjoy the trip.

Later,

Ken

Thanks Skymaster,

On this ship, which bar is the "Sports Bar", there isn't one by that name. Is it along the promenade deck? Will be at sea Friday so will pop in an out. Are there any TV's by the pool bar?

Dave, I've never sailed on the Inspiration, don't know if it has a dedicated "sports" bar or not like the Conquest class ships do.

Have a terrific time, wish I were going with you....enjoy!!!

The Fantasy class ships have a "mini" dedicated "Sports Bar"....

it is on Promenade AFT just before you get to the lounge where they have karaoke.

One side is smoking and one side is nonsmoking!!! enjoy!!!

I am downloading the 392 pics now and then have to weed out the dupes and bad ones. Then make galleries so it may take a little time. Some may not be appropriate for here so I will have to email them to you.

I was texting you Bon Voyage! I will go in more detail later but though I always have fun even on the Minnow of the Seas, I liked this ship more than I thought I would. It is a great size and easy to get around on. Lots of different types of entertainment going on at the same time and big TV's at the pool bar.

I hate to admit it but yes. :evil: I may go both ways now. Royal Caribbean and Carnival.

I am working on the photo gallery but it is extremely slow. My pics are 2.5 MB and they have to 500 KB or less. Never had this problem before. SO I copied the file on my PC and then am downsizing the pics in the copy to around 500 KB but they still load really slow. So it may take awhile. Keep checking back.

I got a Fun Ship Freddie hat to match. It matched my Speedo too! That was a big hit the last day around the pool. After going down the slide in my Speedo, I decided to just keep it on the rest of the afternoon!

Hi, Dave...glad you had a positive experience on your cruise. I'm looking forward to seeing your photos and reading your review. You are the type of person that would definitely enjoy themselves on any ship you cruise on, you have the right attitude...meeting fun people onboard doesn't hurt either (along with a nice cold beer in your hand).

Did you catch any of the Rays games on TV?

Yes, Ryas game was on Thursday afternoon. We missed the Friday game and the crew did not know how to find the right channel half the time. They had a lot of soccer on! :evil: The cigar bar had a big screen and they had a couple by the pool bar.

Hey Dave, I'm so happy you enjoyed your "Inspiration" cruise. I figured you would have a good time, because, as someone else noted, you go aboard with the right attitude. Glad you got to see most of the "Rays" games too.
Got to run, but I'll probably stop by and see you one of these days soon.

OK, Skymaster. Thanks! Yes, the photo galleries are a work in progress. Really slow for some reason.

I would do this ship again and it so easy to come in and out of Tampa living over here. There were some things I liked bettr than RCI and some less but overall exceeded my expectations.

I guess on any cruise it is also who you go with and who you meet. There are a lot of fun people onboard that I got to know. A lot of silly drinking girls and some nice couples. I would have to say the majority were from the Bay area and from 30's to 50.
