We dont have anything to compare the Inspiration to but it was Clean, always being maintained and in good order .
Getting on the ship was a breeze! The buffet food was pretty good although the temp of the food was hit and miss. The main dining was excellent, the staff was spot on.
The staff on the ship is very nice. If you pass a staff member on the ship they always say hello or something to that affect. The comedy shows are excellent along with the main cruise shows. You must get there early or will not find a seat. The chair hogs are not a myth they are real.
The pool is always full and way to small but it worked. The Serenity deck was relaxing.
I was really worried after reading some reviews about this ship but I can honestly say that the people who have negative experiences must be going into this ship with very high expectations and are very hard to please.
I would book another cruise on this ship in a heart beat.
We were extremely pleased with our inside cabin R14. It was EXTREMELY quiet! The only time we heard any ship noise was when they were setting anchor or letting ropes out. I could not imagine spending the extra money for a balcony or ocean view on "this" ship unless the price was cheaper than a inside cabin.
