Default CARNIVAL INSPIRATION

I just booked a 5 day cruise on the Inspiration for Spring Break Week in April. (We are bringing our daughter, son-in-law and 3 teenage grandsons) This should be interesting!! ha ha

I have a couple of questions...I have sailed Carbival before but never on a 5 day or on the Inspiration.

Do the guys have to wear a Jacket on the formal nights--is a shirt and tie enough?

Is there Laundry facilities on board or just sent out?

Is there enough to keep 3 teenagers busy...14, 16 and 17?

Thanks so much

Angela

Shirt and tie will be plenty. Jackets look nice and I love seeing everyone dressed up, but shirt and tie works too.

Is there Laundry facilities on board or just sent out?
There are aboard the other ships so I'm guessing yes...

Is there enough to keep 3 teenagers busy...14, 16 and 17?
Absolutely. They should be able to find people their age and have a blast.


hope this helps

You can do laundry on board. Also since it is Spring Break there will be enough teenagers your kids ages. Also you don't even have to wear a tie. A lot of people just where a button down shirt.
