Cruises are always fun unless you just want to sap your own enjoyment from yourself. I have found this cruise as well as others to always do their best to treat you well. I read some of the other reviews and wonder why some even bothered with a cruise in the first place. Some griped about intoxicated people and catagorized Inspiration "For the Beginner Cruiser" Well, excuse me Cruise snobs, but Inspiration is a family cruise and if you don't have kids, you should find one for adults only. I never saw what that reviewer claimed as "nothing but intoxicated people".

I have found Inspiration's staff to be very good at pleasing. They really work hard.

The food is pretty good for mass serving. I saw one review compare it to Golden Corral. I found it to be much better than Golden Coral. Dinning is always fun on a cruise, and again! for all you cruise snobs out there who complain about the kids in the dinning room, find a cruise that is NOT a family cruise.

The room was small! But I have had smaller ones on other ships. It was very clean though. Every once in a while you get this wif of sewer smell coming from the bathroom, but you call the your room attendant and they will have it fixed quickly.

The on board activities are plentiful, however, some were a little corny; but each to his own. But it's good to see them work so hard to keep everyone entertained. I saw some people complain about every little thing they could think. People like that will never have a good time. The only thing I will say about this ship is the noise levels from the band at the pool deck is too high. They could quiet down some and people will enjoy it more.

I went to the dolphin interaction in Cozumel and it was very nice to see the dolphins up close and personnel but there were so many people that the dolphins were trapped in the middle of them and I don't believe they enjoy that.

Just a grand old time!
