Carnival Inspiration Cabins
Carnival has never been a line with much use for elaborate suites or endless cabin categories, so Inspiration's cabin breakdown is proletariat. Of the 1,026 rooms, 972 are similarly configured oceanview or inside cabins averaging an industry standard 185 square feet.
Cabins are decorated in a mild peach and white color scheme and come equipped with a flat-screen TV, vanity area, closets, safe, bathrobe, life jackets and an amenity basket with an assortment of toiletries. (We got his and hers razors, scented shave gel, a mini-sunblock and wet wipes, but items vary from cruise to cruise, so pack what you need.) There's only one outlet in each cabin, which contains a three-prong 110 volt and a 220 volt input -- so those bringing their gadgets may want to consider packing a power strip. The beds can be arranged in a two-twin format or as a king with the two beds pushed together. While it doesn't look like there's all that much closet and drawer space, we found plenty of room to accommodate our belongings for our four-night Western Caribbean cruise (with one format night). And if you're bringing just a carry-on, checked baggage fees being what they are, your luggage will slide easily under the bed.
En-suite bathrooms in standard accommodations are shower-only. The showers have fantastic water pressure, which you can use to fight off the clingy curtain as it creeps unrelentingly towards you (no glass doors here). Showers stalls include shampoo and body wash in dispensers as well as bar soap. There are no in-cabin hair dryers, so bring your own.
Of the standard cabins, 50 connect via side doors -- a great option for families or groups traveling together.
For passengers in need of a little more room, there are twenty-six 220-square foot "suites," which oddly enough have just queen-size beds. Besides a little more space, these accommodations add a narrow, mini-balcony, on which chairs are placed sideways so you can stretch your legs out lengthwise along the ship's superstructure.
The twenty-eight 330-square-foot Penthouse Suites include a whirlpool bathtub, walk-in closet, king-size bed, unstocked mini-fridge and full-size balcony.
Passengers in the 54 suites also get VIP check-in.
There are 24 cabins for disabled cruisers. These cabins have wider doorways and handrails in the shower, among other things. Carnival offers additional special services for passengers in need of assistance. Contact the line directly for more information.

We always get an inside cabin as we only come to the room to change for dinner, sleep or change into a swim suit to wear on the adults only Serendipity Deck, a very nice treat for quiet and for reading or chatting in one of the two adult only hot tubs. The cabins have...continue
The cabin was small but it worked for me and my wife. We spent most of our time exploring the ship anyways and only needed the room to sleep and shower. Our Steward took excellent care of us he always had our room cleaned and beds made every time we left our room, well...continue

We were more than happy with the cabin. It was roomy and spotless throughout. The bed was very comfy and the bathroom was more than adequate, with lovely hot, powerful shower.
