Hi All, have enjoyed all your posts and found them very informative. Sorry if this question has been asked already and I have missed it. I hope to do my 1st cruise on The Inspiration on April 25th 2009 and was wondering if the ship will be very full or just comfortable at this time of yr. Also will there be many children on board (Dont get me wrong I have nothing against children I have 2 of my own, but am just curious)

Mary

The ship will have a decent amount of people on it because the week you have chosen is usually one of the most inexpensive weeks to book a cruise. Crowds tend to be middle age with spring break over with but im sure there will be a few young ones running around You will have a great time!

Hi Irish:
Yep, the ship will probably be at capacity, however "Inspiration" rarely feels crowded. It's an excellent cruise, and the ship is in very, very good condition, having just come out of dry dock. The only place we noted how many people were aboard, was at the "serenity" area, and around the main pool. I know you'll have a great time aboard "Inspiration". Wish the lovely Mrs. Jones (Vita) and I could join you!

Your welcome...I'll warm the ship up for you. Im going on April 21st! I sailed the Inspiration 2 years ago and the ship is just wonderful. They recently redid the upper deck adding a new pool area and waterslides and mini golf. You will have a terrific time!

I loved cruising on the Inspiration what fun we had! I thought she was grand and the right size to find my way around.
