The inspiration and its staff were great. Everywhere on board we found plenty to do and we were constantly entertained. The "Las Vegas" style entertainment was OK - not really my taste. The comedians and other shows were fantastic. Our stateroom was roomier than we had expected and provided a nice retreat for sleeping - otherwise you would not find us there. The night clubs provided great dancing music and there was always a party to be found. Take the 4X4 Jeep Excursion at Grand Cayman for a nice tour and two great beach stops. The water is breathtaking. The port at Calica has nothing but you can get on a bus for an excursion or catch a cab for $10 American. If you go to XCARET as we did, please note that you can rent a locker to store your valuables for $2. Were unaware of this and we would have been more prepared to swim if we had know that there would be safe place for our valuables. It was a great vacation.

Pros: The staff were fantastic and the food was great.

Cons: We needed more time at Grand Cayman.

Recommends Carnival Inspiration? Yes!

Service and Staff
Everyone seemed so happy to be there even when woorking their butts off.
Great Excursion options. Great on board entertainment.
Children's Programs
We did not have any children but we were told there were over 1,000 children/teens on board and we rarely saw them outside of dinner. When we did see them, they seemed happy and we heard several bragging about what they had done at camp carnival that day.
Ship Quality
We know it is an older ship, but is well maintained and has some beutiful areas.
Food and Dining
George the Greek took care of us.
