Default Inspiration or Fascination?

In your opinion which ship is nicer? Carnival Inspiration, or Carnival Fascination?

I don't think you will go wrong with either one. Fascination has been upgraded in many areas but at this time does not have the Serenity deck and water park if those features are important to you.

You take Sally and I'll take Sue....ain't no difference tween the two.

Actually Sally had a facelift and boob job and cruises 4-5's from Tampa and Sue has yet to be uplifted and cruises 4-5's from Jax to Bahamas. So really a matter of where you want to go and which home port is easier. Both not too bad for a couple older broads.

Perhaps it depends on where you're coming from and where you wish to fly to and sail?

Fascination sails out of Jacksonville and cruises the Bahamas while Inspiration sails out of Tampa and cruises the Western Caribbean.

I would go on the Inspiration because they just remodeled the entire ship. The Fascination has only been partly remodeled.

I agree with Spencer. Inspiration has had a more extensive "uplift" and is in GREAT shape, and has the Serenity Deck. Both are excellent ships, but between the two, I'd go "Inspiration".
