Default Just back from "Inspiration".

The lovely Mrs. Jones (Vita) and I just returned from a 5 day aboard the beautiful "Inspiration". The upgrades are fantastic, and especially the "Serenity" deck. If you have any questions, fire away, and I'll write a brief review shortly.

My co worker just came back from a week on the Inspiration and had the best time. I love that ship and hope to do another cruise on her.

Nope, I couldn't talk the lovely Mrs. Jones (Vita) into doing the big slide with me. (Yep, I could have done it along, but we try to do most things together) Anyway, it looked like a lot of fun, and perhaps I'll do it on the next one.
The miniature golf course is really cool too. Really nice, and clean, with some challenging holes!

We sail in 50 days on the inspiration and can hardly wait! How were the shows and how was the food? Did you go to the ports and if so did you do any excursions?

The shows, and especially the two big production shows were outstanding. The two singers, who we'd heard before were excellent, and really put on a good show. The rest of the shows were also very good, except one comedian, (Kenny Miller) who frankly,,,sucked! We'd heard him before as well, and thought maybe we just got him on a bad night before, but he still sucks. The food aboard was really good, and the variety was good as well. Food is subjective I suppose, but when you think about how many meals they cook up in the kitchen of these ships, it's amazing that it is as good as it is. We found it to be very, very good.

Default Review has been submitted!

I wrote a brief review of our cruise aboard "Inspiration". I don't know how long it will take CM staff to post it, but shouldn't be too long. Enjoy, and if you have any further questions, fire away.

ugggg Kenny Miller again - you seem to have my luck, I think the man has been on every Carnival ship I have been on... let's hope his contract with Carnival runs out sooooon.

Glad to hear you checked her for me in advance Ken. I go Oct 2nd and look forward to the changes and refurb. After being on the Sensation 5 years ago, I will have something to compare it to.

How about some pictures

Sorry to take so long to answer,,we've been in Indiana for a family emergency for a week, and just returned.
You can find the review by clicking on "Ship Reviews", then "Readers Reviews", then Carnival, then Inspiration. I haven't checked to see if it's posted yet, but it's been nearly a week, so it should be. If you have any further questions, just ask away. We had a GREAT time aboard "Inspiration".
