Carnival Inspiration - About this Ship

All Carnival ships inspire guests to have a great time and memorable vacation, but it won’t surprise you to learn that the inspiration for Carnival Inspiration was nothing less than inspiration itself! This ship’s uniquely creative spirit is on display, and definitely shines as you cruise the Western Caribbean.

From the moment you step into the Grand Atrium, you’ll realize that it isn’t just a room with a high ceiling - it’s a place of high art. Your dinner at one of the two main dining rooms is more than just a dish in front of you - it’s the result of our chefs’ culinary creativity. And the Paris and Candlelight Lounges aren’t just rooms with some seats and a stage - they’re spots for our performers to transport you to another place and time.

All of the above and everything else you love about a Carnival cruise - from food to pools to waterslides - are present on this ship, one where you can’t help but find that creative spirit behind all the fun around you.
