I sailed on the Inspiration two years ago. I had a great time. I thought the food was great. I thought the entertainment was very good. My assigned crew members: (the wait staff and cabin steward) were the best.
I did not see any of the worn or stained carpeting everyone mentioned. MAybe if I looked very closely, I could have spotted it. The ship to me looked spotless.
I had nothing but a great time on the Inspiration. And I had nothing to complain about. I have already stated IMHO, what motivates some people to write negative reviews, in a reply on another thread.
Anyway, I wouldn't hesistate if given another opporitunity to take a cruise on the Inspiration. With any luck, next year I will, along with a few others here as we embark on the Cruise-Chat Charity Cruise. If so, I look forward to seeing all of you then
