We were on Inspiration in Jan 05. I do believe it had been refurbished shortly prior to our cruise, like Sept of 04. I couldn't really tell much that they would have done except maybe recarpet some areas, etc. The ship was in wonderful shape and we loved it. Not too big to figure your way around pretty easy. Lots of little nooks and crannies for having a nice drink and reading!
We were on the Inspiration last August (August 2004) - and we felt she was already in very good shape - but then again, that was our first cruise. She did go in for refurbishing about the end of September 04. Should be in FINE shape now. Have a GREAT time !!
