The meals were of a good variety at each sitting and the cabin crew were exceptionally friendly and gave A-1 service. It helps to throw in a "good morning" ( Sal-a-met Bag-ee) and a "thank you" (ta-reem-a-kasi ) in Indonesian and they will feel part of your family. Thank you would be "Salama" to Filipinos on the staff. Their home country is on their pins.
This is a good cruise for a short getaway and still feel far away.
The Captain plotted a course that was well away from any bad weather, though there was a hurricane hugging the coast. The Inspiration is large enough that 4-5 foot swells are barely noticed.
Overall, for the money, it's a nice casual getaway as opposed to a more formal cruise.
Pros: Good food, nice ports and decent sized room
Cons: could use more updating, the entertainment was below par
