Recommends Carnival Inspiration? Yes!

Cabin / Stateroom
Our cabin was clean and well-laid out, and the bed was very comfortable. Unfortunately, it was directly below the main stage of the ship's largest night club, where there was a noisy show each night. Our bad luck.
Only a few of the musicians impressed me as being of professional quality; some are better entertainers than they are musicians, and others should either learn to read music or look for another line of work.
Ship Quality
Food and Dining
I had heard that food service was a special thing on cruises, and the Inspiration did not disappoint. Every meal was memorable, and each luncheon and dinner buffet included specialty items from different ethnic cuisines. Very impressive.
Service and Staff
We called the cabin steward when our toilet malfunctioned. The plumber was at the door before I had hung up the phone.
George Town, Grand Cayman
Interesting ambience, but the recommended shore excursions seemed overpriced. The one we booked left the port area before our tender (the last to leave the ship) arrived on the pier. We ate all meals aboard ship, so can't comment on local restaurants.
Cozumel, Mexico
The reverse osmosis desalinization plant that serves the entire community. We ate all meals aboard ship, so can't comment on local restaurants.
