Carnival Inspiration

All Carnival ships inspire guests to have a great time and a memorable vacation, but it won't surprise you to learn that the inspiration for Carnival Inspiration... was nothing less than inspiration itself!

From the moment you step aboard, you'll realize that this isn't just a cruise ship. The Grand Atrium 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.

For inspired food, fast, transport yourself to the BlueIguana Cantina, home of freshly stuffed tacos and burritos. Or if you're more in the burger mood, try Guy's Burger Joint, where they weren't just inspired by Guy Fieri... they were designed by the guy himself. For the adults, there's RedFrog Rum Bar, BlueIguana Tequila Bar, plus the borderline-magical Alchemy Bar. And for the kid in everyone, there's the truly sweet Cherry On Top.

Speaking of kids, nothing inspires relaxation quite like letting them do their own thing... and that dedication to adult chill time describes the Serenity Adult-Only Retreat to a 'T.' But when it's time to reunite, nothing inspires families to squeals, screams and splashes like a good waterslide... something the onboard Carnival WaterWorks knows a thing (or two, to be precise) about.

All of the above, and everything else there is to love about a Carnival cruise - from food to pools to comfy rooms - live on this ship, one where you can't help but find that creative spirit behind all the fun around you.
