It was our first cruise and a great first experience. We are planning to take another cruise based on the fun we had on the Inspiration. The food was good, although I personally could have done with a bit more variety. The ship was lovely. The staff was wonderful.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
There could have been a little more variety. For example, almost every day in the casual dining room, they had the same layer cake dessert, just in different flavors, along with maybe one or two alternative desserts. Breakfast offerings seemed to be same throughout the ship.

When we were there, the harbormaster had called for no swimming or water activities due to rough seas, so we had to change our plans. I was very disappointed in the quality of the shopping. I felt very uncomfortable with the constant barrage of sellers trying to get us to come into their shop.

Pros: Good food, fun atmosphere, people

Cons: Soda pop was difficult to get
