I don't know what, exactly, they are going to do to the old girl. We just sailed her in late July, and frankly she's in excellent condition IMO. The only thing I noted that needed changing, was some of the carpet in the passageways on Main deck. I saw no rust, no wear and tear in the public areas, nothing! If they do improve her, she'll be even better than many of the Conquest class ships,,,,again IMO. :D

See you aboard,

Ken

Please let us know how the Inspiration was. My family and I are doing our first cruise on Carnival on her in March. Also can you please look out for baskeball courts. My teenage boys are wondering if they have any onboard.
Thanks,

We are going on the INSPIRATION in 65 days, just a few days after the refurbishment! I will take pics. Anyone want any particular pic? How about a pic of that basketball court for those boys? :wink:

Please, please take a pic of the basketball court. My sons will be thrilled to see they have them.

I found this on Frommers website. Looks like the focus will be in the pool area...
"Carnival has just released details of a complete redesign of the vessels' pool decks, to be implemented ship by ship over the next two years. The redesign will:
1) Add a new Carnival WaterWorks aqua-park on Verandah Deck aft, featuring a four-deck, 300-foot spiraling tube water slide, as well as a separate 82-foot triple-lane waterslide. Most of the surrounding deck area will be occupied by a "spray park" with different kinds of high-concept water-guns -- similar to the H2O Zone water parks on Royal Caribbean's Freedom and Liberty of the Seas.
2) Designate serenity areas out on deck, for adults only.
3) Redecorate the main pool areas in "resort style," with umbrellas providing shaded seating at pool's edge along a "beach" of blue tile with yellow accents.
4) Cover one of the two pool-area hot tubs with a thatched, palapa-style roof, giving guests the option of shade. Faux palm trees, along with more thatched roofing over new, centrally positioned staircases, will further enhance the tropical resort ambiance.
5) Add new tile-work and thatched roofing to the pool bars and the outdoor food service area just behind the stage.

Imagination and Inspiration will be the first of the Fantasy-class ships to get the pool upgrades, later this year."

Looking forward to the upgrades!

I saw that! I was looking for that site for her but couldn't find it. Could you send her the address for the boys? I'm sure they'd LOVE to see that!

Glenda,

We were on the Inspiration in June and she already has a basketball court. I imagine it will stay put, as I don't see anything on the refurb details that deal with that area.

Unfortunately, I don't have any photos of it to share with you. IIRC, it's one deck below (and right behind) the funnel on the aft end. I seem to recall it's a half court. There always seemed to be a game going on whenever we walked by.

Enjoy your trip!

Thanks, I know those boys will get a kick out of seeing that site!

glenda55 August 9th, 2007 02:55 PM

Thanks to you all for the basketball help. My boys are set now.

I couldnt have said it better. She is in excellent shape and once they do the new waterworks re-fit she will be amazing...HAIL Carnival INSPIRATION!
