Ship small for the amount of people on board, one small pool. Spa is located under running track so not quiet and relaxing for massage. Shows in main theater not very good, better performers in highschool.

7 mile beach awesome. Wave runners and bannana boat a blast. Great activities.

Pros: Ports of call great

Cons: Grouchy staff when getting off cruise ship for ports of call, felt like herded cattle, "free" excursions booked through orbitz not a good idea found out after booked on local time not ship and was unable to change excursion time unable to complete all of the excursion.

Recommends Carnival Inspiration? No.
