Carnival's staterooms (about 1,557 of them) are slightly larger than industry standards (approximately 185 square feet for a standard room) and there's not much disparity between cabin categories. However, the ship's lack of balconies does stand out -- just 45 cabins have verandas, including the suites.

Accessible cabins are available in all categories except junior suite.

Decor is simple -- sherbet orange bed ruffles, curtains and some accents; rust-colored lights and shelving; maroon carpeting and crisp white bed sheets, towels and shower curtains. Closets and nightstands are a medium-brown wood. One work of art hangs on the wall; ours was bright, cheery and reminded us of a Matisse tablescape. There's a desk with one chair, a safe in the closet, a hair dryer in the top draw of the desk, a small flat-screen TV, bar soap, shampoo and bodywash dispensers in the bathroom and one U.S. outlet above the desk. Suitcases fit under the bed and there's plenty of storage space for clothes and shoes, especially for a short cruise.

You can opt for two single beds or have them pushed together to form a queen.

One facet of the room that makes it feel a tad outdated is the air-conditioning system; there's no thermostat so our room was always cold because air is constantly blowing through a ceiling vent -- all we could do was try to close the vent to the best of our ability.

Interior: There are about 988 inside cabins onboard. Some feature an upper pull-down or sofa bed to maximize space for two cruisers traveling together who don't want to share a bed. Others accommodate three to four passengers, with twin beds and a pull-down bed, sofa or trundle bed. Inside cabins can be found on all passenger decks.

Oceanview: There are roughly 524 outside cabins with a porthole or window onboard. There are no outside cabins on Deck 11.

Balcony: There are no standard balcony cabins onboard Carnival Imagination.

Junior Suite: There are 17 Junior Suites -- nine on Deck 11, along with eight junior suites with an obstructed view. Junior suites feature more interior space with a small couch. All have a balcony, can sleep up to three people and come with VIP check-in. The balcony comes with two chairs and a small table.

Suite: There are 28 Grand Suites on Deck 6. For the most inside and outside space, plus VIP check-in, book a full suite. Rooms come with a couch, an armchair, and a dressing area with a vanity. You will find two chairs and a small table on the balcony, as well. Grand Suites can be connected to other rooms, but each room can accommodate up to five passengers.

The cabin was great! We split the beds apart since we were friends traveling together. My only complaint would be that the shower was a bit hard to find the "hot" water spot. But, I finally figured it out.... Read more
