Just got off the Inspiration a few days ago. We were satisfied and enjoyed the cruise even though it was cold weather. Grand Cayman was nice. Cozumel was chilly and windy. Ourshore excursion was canceled by the port authority due to the inclement weather. New Orleans was cold but still always nice. Shopping was always good and we got good buys on emeralds and gifts. The Inspiration was very nice and food was next to excellent and the service was very good too. Our major gripe was the SMOKING throughout the ship. Although they had some restricted areas, smoke still roamed throughout the ship, especially in all the elevator lobby areas and hallways. It was tough for us to spend any time in the Casino or any Lounges due to all the SMOKE. We won a free tour on Grand Cayman and a $25 gift certificate from Emerald Mines in Cozumel, but Emerald Mines would not honor even though we spent several hundred dollars there. We cruise a lot and this is the first time we had been on Carnival for 15 years.Overall, it was OK and the positives some what overshadowed the negatives.
