According to the Cruise Ship Tracker, her destination is showing Izmir, Turkey which is following in the footsteps of other recent cruise ships that are being scrapped. She’s already been stripped of all the important things at the cargo dock in Curacao which the port recently confirmed.

Carnival Inspiration is following sister ship Carnival Fantasy which has also been sold and scrapped. Carnival Fantasy already departed the Caribbean island and currently heading across the Atlantic to Turkey.

The ship follows other vessels that have been confirmed to leave Carnival Carp including MS Maasdam, MS Veendam, MS Amsterdam, MS Rotterdam, Oceana, Costa Victoria, and Costa neoRomantica. Carnival Fantasy is also leaving but the cruise line has not yet announced it.
