Great cabin for the price. Large window, King Bed, fold down single sleeper attached to the wall for our adult daughter who was traveling with us. One electric plug so take a power strip with you. Large mirror/vanity for the ladies to do their make up. Safe that operates by swiping your credit card (but it doesn't charge you, it is free). Closet space to hang things, and a sitting chair. Ship TV with lots of channels. Bathroom and shower are roomy for a ship bathroom and shower, I've had smaller. Cabin was very good, no complaints. Read entire member review >>
With the kids running down the hall, banging the floor like jungle drums, and people loitering in the halls talking, getting a good night sleep was not possible. But I liked the shower pressure, shower heat, and shower adjustment. No heater, so we were freezing. Window was bigger than I expected. Bed was fine. Liked the cabin light (main and individual) in the headboard. Only one plug :( Read entire member review >>
We had a standard room with a window. It would have been nice if it opened for fresh air, but at least we could see out. It was nice watching the ship come in/out of port, city lights, moonlight, etc. Bed was comfy enough with nice linens, pillows, large King size, etc. What was most amazing was all the storage with two closets, four drawers, and lighted dressing table. We found it be a very efficient use of space and never felt crowded or cluttered. Read entire member review >>
For the small square footage actually feels very roomy. Comfortable bed with wonderful comforter. This room has an optional third bed but would be very crammed with that. For us the two twins pushed together into a queen was really really nice. This side of the boat has great views coming into Catalina and Ensenada. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was just OK. We really missed having a sofa. Despite being 185sq. feet, it felt small without the sofa. Also, because it had a door connecting the cabin next door, the bed was in a very awkward location. When we first got the cabin, the bed was right next to the connecting door (effectively blocking it), which didn't work for us because we could literally hear every word our neighbors were saying when we were laying down. We ended up moving the beds to the bottom of the window, which definitely made the room flow better and seem bigger. However, in this configuration, we could not see the TV.

So many people complain about cruise ship cabins being so small. We were plenty comfortable.
Class 6E staterooms are 185 square feet. That's roughly 13x14, so about the size of my kitchen. Compared to a hotel, yes, the rooms are tiny, but don't think of it like that. The entire Inspiration is your home for a few days. The cabin is just your bedroom. What all do you have to do in there? You can do it in 185 square feet.
There's plenty of closet space if you're not ridiculous. PLENTY of bed space! My biggest problem is that the bathroom light switch is outside the door. I mean, really...who does that?! Put the freaken light switch where people can actually get to it. geez.
The bathrooms are smaller than what you have at home. Be grateful you have such spacious bathrooms in your house and get over it. A ship is a mode of transportation. Have you seen the bathroom on a bus? A train? An airplane? Yeah, perspective.
Yes, having to climb up on the bed to adjust the vent in the ceiling for climate control is a little weird. And no, the window, if you have one, doesn't open. But someone comes and makes your bed FOR you. Every Night! AND you get cute towel animals! Yay for terrycloth elephants! Yay for awesome room stewards from Indonesia who work hard to make better lives for their families! Good job, guys. :) Read entire member review >>
Cabin quite nice with a well appointed and relatively new bathroom. Other appointments of average standard. Walls very thin and no match for the large number of drunks who yelled up and down the hallway on all three nights of the trip.
Nice fitness centre - no crowds! Read entire member review >>
E91 - two twin beds, window. Very roomy. Unobstructed window view. Plenty of closet space. Bathroom roomy. Beds really comfortable. Loved the comforter. E91 very close to Atrium yet in the middle enough so as not to feel too much motion. Read entire member review >>
Cabin M249: Nice big closet, two twin beds pushed together, hard mattress, room has a desk, safe, tiny reading lights above each side of bed, and TV; bathroom was small, but shower big enough for two. Read entire member review >>
Top of the line!! Quite, clean and enough room for 4 large bags.
2 hanging closets and one closet for folding cloths on shelves.
Outlet on side of vanity very easy to get too.
Enough room for the 2 of us too move around in comfort.
Window was sort of double sized, so large enough to view sites.
Bathroom had pleanty of room for the 2 of us to be in at one time.
Beds were very comfortable and we slept well.
Room tempture was perfect. We took our own fan, but never needed it. Read entire member review >>
E222 - Nice and quiet. We could not hear much noise from machinery or people. Conveniently-located. It was only a very short walk and two flights of stairs to the Serenity Deck where we spent a lot of our time. The Brasserie was one more flight from there. Read entire member review >>
