This will most likely be our last Carnival Cruise. Although their crew is amazing, friendly, helpful & very attentive, the ship was a mess. From the moment we arrived in our stateroom, the entire bathroom reeked of sewage, which we would get whiffs of all over the boat, enclosing the decks and dining rooms. The elevators kept breaking down, the room and pool towels were mangled rags, our toilet backed up while we were gone on a shore excursions, and we came back to a flooded bathroom, we were woken by extreme shaking (knocking everything in the shower and bathroom to the floor) and engine screams everynight and every morning, and the food was ok, not the best, but edible. The poor crew works double over-time to counter this nasty old ship. They even shampooed the hallway carpets while we were there, but the boat is simply too worn to look presentable.
Don't waste your money on the Inspiration, and I personally would never do another Carnival cruise again. We've sailed Norweigen & Royal Carribean many times, and will continue to stick with those companies and Princess. Many of those horrific headlines about terrible experiences with cruises just happen to be the majority from Carnival, and now I see why.

Do carry your luggage off of the ship for disembarkation. From the moment we left our room, to the time we went through customs and got to our car, it only took us 20 minutes.
