Public Rooms

Additional details

Sail Date: Jun 2010

Embarkation: The embarkation process went really smoothly. The Port of Tampa is larger than other ports that we have been to, and things seem to run well there. We had our fun passes, boarding tickets, driver's licenses, and birth certificates ready when we arrived.

Public Rooms: The public rooms were clean. The decor is "artistic"...hence the name Inspiration.

Cabin: The space was smaller than a hotel room, but was plenty for the two of us. We were able to put all of our clothes in the closet and drawers. The steward kept the cabin clean, and made us cute towel animals. :)

Nice size room for two people, good storage space

Port Reviews


We had a great time in Cozumel. There is a little shopping area when you get off of the ship. The people are good about bargaining with you. We spent way too much on souvenirs though.

It is HOT in Cozumel in June! Apparently it is not the best time to visit (according to our tour guide anyway).

Grand Cayman (Georgetown)

Grand Cayman is beautiful. It felt less "tourist-y" than some of the other ports that we have visited. There is a small shopping area when you get to the island from the tender boat. Apparently the area near island is not deep enough for cruise ships to come all the way in. The Reef & Rays excursion was a lot of fun. I heard that Stingray City is one of the best places on the island to visit.
