Karaoke was horrible. Ben, the guy in charge was terrible and too young. He didn't have any discretion in who sang and how often and it was dominated by annoying teenagers. Also, he wasn't very cohesive. There was too much down time inbetween singers and guests got bored in between. He ruined that Karaoke experience for us.

we ate at a local restaurant and it was delicious. we also took an excursion that was not associated with carnival. we went on a snorkel and sail.
Don't Miss: we really liked the snorkeling and swimming in the ocean

we liked the local tour of several highlighted sights including the turtle farm and dolphin observation area. we also liked the rum cake store, visiting hell and the 7 mile beach.
Don't Miss: rum cake store

Pros: quality service all the way around and value for the price

Cons: LOTS of underage drinking and a lack of monitoring of that on the ship. Also, smoking on deck was a problem.

Recommends Carnival Inspiration? Yes!
