First cabin (3858) an inside was OK the first night; second night with rough seas, something in the wall kept rolling around with sharp 'knocks & rattles' constantly so sleeping wasn't the best. Security was called, checked out storage room next door, he heard the sound, couldn't fix it .... he said it was IN the wall or sounded like it was. The next day I went to Guest Services & Bruno did his best and because the ship wasn't 'sold out' was able to move me to the other end of the ship on a higher deck into a room with an ocean view through circular 'porthole.' Quiet restored and the view was a nice 'plus.' Read entire member review >>
We did not enjoy the layout of our cabin (11429). The double bed is right up next to the closet which prohibits any walkway. Our daughter's room (11431) was worse, as the sofa bed when folded out is only 12" away from the desk area. Our son's room (7439) had the same sofa bed arrangement. Read entire member review >>
We decided to stay in an interior room to see how it compares. We are in our room very little, mostly to sleep and change. We actually liked how dark and quiet it was and slept very well. We stayed on Deck 6 near the Boardwalk, there was so much convenient to our room. Boardwalk, one floor down Royal Promenade Deck, two floors down, Main Dining, Casino, two floors up Central Park, we were able to use the stairs, but had plenty of elevators. Our room attendant was friendly and communicated with us when would be best for cleaning our room. Read entire member review >>
We booked last minute and had to snag an interior. I actually loved not having windows this trip and slept like a polar bear. Our Cabin was perfect for two people. Shower was always hot. I might actually book these kinds of rooms more often. They are cheaper, really quiet, nice and cold, and very comfortable. Read entire member review >>
Much smaller rooms than Carnival. Rooms laid out so you have to go around the end of the bed to get to couch and make-up desk. Barely room to get suitcase around end of bed with it turned sideways. Nice round shower with sliding doors. Read entire member review >>
Pros: Comfortable, spacious, plenty of storage and lighting, hot water, clean.
Cons: Very limited English-language channels on TV, no satellite available for US sports fans (you have to purchase the Wi-Fi for $30/day if you want to see your football games), no ice bucket, wine bottles don't fit upright in the fridge. Read entire member review >>
the cabin was a bit bigger than our usual. the sofa was a sofa bed which was a tad hard. there was loads of storage space for our clothes. our stateroom attendant was very friendly and nice. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was large and nicely fit 3. But if you are a light sleeper this is not for you since it was located above th karaoke bar and you could hear the bass guitar. That did not bother us. Read entire member review >>
Our Room was lovely always clean and fresh towels every day, I loved the towels animals Carl made for us, our room attendant was lovely and friendly very helpful, Carl was his name, we would have been lost with out him, our room was always clean and fresh if you ever need anything it was no problem, everything was lovely in our room, you can keep up to date with what's going on around the ship from your TV in your room also you can check you account on the TV aswell Read entire member review >>
The cabin was exactly what we expected the beds were very comfy, the linens were good, towels a bit on the small side, but we requested a couple extra and they were provided.
No additional toiletries or robes which as diamond plus we should have received, but we didn't ask so no big deal Read entire member review >>
11454 and 11456
We had two adults in 11454 and 3 teens in 11456. Large interior connecting rooms. Plenty of storage. Great layout and comfortable. We always bring a surge protector extension cord for extra outlets . Loved the flat screen tv. Great lighting. Perfect location.....forward center of ship, near the elevators but several rooms away behind a walled hallway for privacy. Loved the room even though we normally stay in suites....great service. I missed my balcony a little but the inside room forced me to spend more time in public ship areas which was great. We were several floor above the gym and theater, below the solarium....perfect. Dining room was on the opposite side of the ship which was nice to walk to and from after a big meal.

Quiet room on the forward end of the ship on the 10th deck, had a chesterfield that pulled down for a third person, space was fairly good as you could store luggage under the bed. Read entire member review >>
We had a connecting room since traveling with 4 people. It worked great. It was quiet. Had great stateroom attendant. An inside cabin is fine, since you only sleep and change clothes there. I wouldn't want an cabin facing inward, as the noise and people would be too loud and you'd have no privacy. The bathroom was large enough and had enough storage. Closets were adequate and we even had more space then needed. Wasn't able to store the suitcases anywhere though., had to stack them in the room. Wasn't much room between the beds when they were separated and had to push them in closer to get around during the day. The adjoining room was set up differently with the beds facing out to the hall, so it seemed much bigger. Read entire member review >>
Bed close to the closet. Front of the ship. Guest cabins above and below. Some entertainment may be on this floor. Balloon lady was often seen walking down our hallway in her costume. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 6193. This is such a convenient location. It is very near the spa, and if you walk in the opposite direction you can get to the Boardwalk (same floor), also the Schooner bar and Focus (photos). I really liked the location of this room. The rooms have a lot of storage. We had a room that had the 2 pull down bunks over the bed. I didn't hit my head once, but stubbed my toes on the ladder every day. There is a loveseat in the room also. The closet is roomy, has 2 rods (1 upper, 1 lower) and LOTS of hangers. The safe is in the closet, as well as I think 3 cubbies for you to put other things. The vanity has 2 drawers that you can use (really 3, but there is a hairdryer in one), and then on the left of the mirror there is storage upper and lower of the desk. The fridge is on the right lower. TV swivels and is a nice size flat screen. Bathroom has a lot of storage as well, and 2 hooks on the wall to the left of the sink, 3 hooks on the back of the door, and 2 hooks in the shower. There is a shelving unit on the right of the vanity that has 2 cubbies and a little drawer. There is also storage under the vanity.
The lights---never figured them out. Even the comedy show comedian was making fun of them! There is a master switch on top, then 2 switches below that, then another big switch below that. I couldn't ever figure it out. There is also a mysterious light over the painting above the couch and I couldn't figure out how to turn that off, but somehow I'd wake up in the morning and it would be off!

Not a lot of storage space in drawers, but I thought the closet was big enough. Loved the "night" light in the bathroom. It is on the end so you do have some noise, but it did not bother us. Read entire member review >>
