I've sailed the Inspiration twice, both time with kids (10-15), and to date she remains my favorite ship. I did write a review both times. You can find it on this site under Ship Reviews, Reader Reviews, Carnival, Inspiration. I don't think you can go wrong with this ship. The only thing I would suggest is two cabins. You'll find it really tight with just one for 5 people. The first time we went there were 5 of us (2 adults and 3 kids) and we did two inside cabins. The price difference was only about $150 and the second bathroom was invaluable. The 2nd time it was me and 3 kids. We put the four of us in one room and while it was tight, it was doable. The biggest problem was the bathroom and all of us trying to get ready.
