Itineraries

As of 2018, Carnival Inspiration sails three-day and four-day trips from Long Beach, California, to Catalina Island, California, and to Ensenada, Baja California, which replaces the cruises that were offered on the Carnival Paradise. The three-day cruises depart Long Beach every Friday and have one stop in Ensenada, while the four-day cruises depart Long Beach every Monday and stop in Catalina and Ensenada.

Before December 2011, the ship sailed four-day and five-day itineraries to the western Caribbean from Tampa, Florida, to Cozumel and Grand Cayman. On December 3, 2011, she began a 14-day voyage through the Panama Canal from Tampa to Long Beach. She offered one two-day cruise before starting the three-day and four-day Baja Mexico cruises from Long Beach.
