The ship is the Carnival Inspiration, which has a seven-deck Grand Atrium. “Designed to inspire, this ship features bars and lounges with an art nouveau theme, such as the Café des Artistes and the Avant-Garde Lounge. The Rock ‘N Roll dance club has a guitar-shaped dance floor and hundreds of video monitors, the softly lit Candlelight Lounge provides an intimate setting for various entertaining acts such as Punchliners Comedy Club, and the Rhapsody in Blue piano bar always attracts a lively crowd for sing-alongs. When it’s time to relax, Spa Carnival will soothe your mind and body with a variety of spa treatments. Out on deck, guests can lounge by a resort-style pool, splash around at Carnival WaterWorks aqua park, or practice their putting skills on the nine-hole mini-golf course. The Inspiration also features an adults-only “Serenity” area that offers bar service, ocean vistas and whirlpools for relaxation. At meal time, the Inspiration offers a nice selection of dining venues, including a casual bar and grill, pizzeria and two main dining rooms. Staterooms feature high-thread-count linens and duvet, custom pillows, fine cotton towels, terry cloth robes and 24-hour room service.”
