Default Carnival Inspiration?

How often are the shows changed on the boats? I went with this cruise in September and may be going again in January. Will the shows be the same or different?
Any input would be great!

Hi. My family and I returned from a 'cruise' on the Inspiration (9/29-10/5). If you have not booked your cruise for this ship yet, don't! In fact, pick another line. My husband and I took a five day cruise to Jamaica and Grand Cayman in April 2005. We decided to take our adult sons this year for a much-needed family vacation. It was a disaster. We left four hours late, after we were told there was a propulsion problem and we could go to Nassau and Freeport.

We later found out that they had taken several people off the boat and moved them to another ship. We also found out that they had offered about 100 passengers a full refund -- not us.

The food and service was lousy and the passengers have signed petitions seeking compensation and punitive damages. If this does not occur we will be filing a class action lawsuit.

You've got bigger problems to worry about than the shows! Good luck and beware.

I was on the Inspiration September /06 and had the best time of my life and I would do it again in a heartbeat. I had my mother and sisters with me and had fun every minute of every day. Nothing bad to say. We did have a medical emergency on the ship and had to turn around to meet a coast guard helicopter to airlift this person off.There was also 2 other medical emergencies on our cruise. We didn't get to one port in time but the captain secured another port for us. We didn't care one bit. If it was a family member of ours that needed this help we would have been eternally grateful for everything. I speak to my sister every day and we can't stop talking about our Best Vacation Ever. We are booked for the Liberty next September. And also are looking into the Inspiration in January/07 with my hubby and possibly another couple. With all the problems on our cruise we still had the best time and we made the most of it. We had already paid the money so why not have the best time possible. AND WE DID!!!!!!!!

the boat the other poster describes with propolsion probs was the Imagination. A great ship. we were on her in march as well as the sailing described. as far as shows the main ones will be the same. We have had the same shows all three sailings this year. Still a great time so much to do. I would sugest you look at the imagination out of miami.
