5 Night Western Caribbean (Tampa Roundtrip) Sail Date: July 17, 2006 Ship: Carnival Inspiration Cabin Type: Inside Traveled As: Couple Reviewed: 11 years ago
We sailed on the Inspiration 5 years ago and the refurbished decor actually looked better than the original. She is 10 years old but still looks great throughout. It was a pleasant surprise on how they managed to maintain her beauty. We would not hesitate to rendevous with her in the future and in fact, it would be our privilage to sail with her again.
Food and Dining
3 out of 5
The food is better than average but certain things are better than others. The omelettes and deli sandwiches were great but the beef dishes served for dinner were disappointing. It's best to opt for the seafood which was always flavorful.

A matter of opinion only but I would like to have seen more professional type of entertainment and exclude the talent show and the newlywed game varieties.
Service and Staff
5 out of 5
Our cabin steward always kept our cabin 'ship shaped' without being visible. Our head waiter was very attentive and gracious with all our requests.
5 out of 5
This is the ideal size for a cruise ship, not so big that would wear you out just walking back and forth from one end to the other or so small that you recognize the people you pass by daily. It is very clean throughout and it's still modern in looks.
Cabin / Stateroom
1 out of 5
Our cabin for some reason did not have 2 twins on the bottom. It makes no sense why any cabins would be equipped with just bunk beds. The rest of the cabin was big enough for its use which is to get some rest in between activities.
