Carnival Inspiration - Ship Description

The art-deco themed Carnival Inspiration provides lively entertainment and pampering service to its 2,052 guests as it sails to some of the hottest destinations. Offering acres of teak deck space, this 855-foot vessel features all of the Fun Ship amenities, from a grand casino to several restaurants, providing plenty of options for families, first-timers, and veteran cruisers alike.

Onboard facilities include a health and fitness area (featuring saunas, hot tubs, and a steam room), three swimming pools (including one with a 14-foot-high water slide), and the Bard-themed Shakespeare Library. Young people can participate in the supervised Camp Carnival program, where they can hang out in the wading pool, computer lab, two playgrounds, and arts-and-crafts center with cruisers their own age.

The formal Mardi Gras and Carnivale dining rooms offer gourmet fare, spa cuisine, and even meals with children's tastes in mind. For a more laid-back alternative, the Lido Deck's Brasserie Bar and Grille serves up a more casual atmosphere, as well as delicious Italian specialties for breakfast and lunch, and pizza 24 hours a day. Nightlife options include the Rock and Roll Dance Club, the Monte Carlo casino, and the Paris Lounge, a two-story theater that hosts lavish shows and musical acts. George Gershwin might feel right at home in Rhapsody in Blue, the ship's elegant piano bar.
