Carnival Inspiration to Sail Year-Round from Long Beach, Calif.

The 2,052-passenger Carnival Inspiration will launch year-round cruises from Long Beach, Calif., when it departs on a four-day voyage to Catalina Island and Ensenada.

Carnival Inspiration's itinerary encompasses three-day cruises departing Fridays to Ensenada and four-day cruises departing Mondays to Ensenada and Catalina Island. Previously, this itinerary was operated by the Carnival Paradise, which has been redeployed to Tampa.

The 70,000-ton Carnival Inspiration underwent a multi-million-dollar refurbishment as part of the line’s “Evolutions of Fun” enhancement program and includes such innovations as a WaterWorks aqua park with a 300-foot-long water slide, 82-foot-long racing slides and a water spray area, a Serenity adults-only retreat, a tropical-themed resort-style main pool area and numerous other features.

Carnival Inspiration also includes a nine-hole miniature golf course, a 12,000-square-foot spa, a jogging track, and spacious facilities and supervised programming for children in three age groups (Camp Carnival for two- to 11-year-olds, Circle“C” for kids ages 12-14, and Club O2 for the 15- to 17-year-old set).

The ship also offers 12 lounges and bars, including a multi-level theater, along with three restaurants including two full-service dining rooms and a 725-seat poolside eatery. Carnival Inspiration joins the 3,006-passenger Carnival Splendor which operates seven-day Mexican Riviera cruises from Long Beach..
