Great room, not crowded. Very comfortable. We let carnival choose our balcony room to save money and it was a great decision. I was afraid since we had 2 rooms that we would be separated, but Carnival kept us just down the hall from each other and everything went great.

We had cabin 7391 Balcony aft near stairs and elevators. Typical carnival Balcony cabin, except no fridge. Not at all noisy being near stairs and elevators very convenient location.  Read entire member review.
First time in a balcony room and loved it, the only problem was that we got a trundle instead of a roll-away and my son is 6'4 so it was too small, but the cabin steward placed an extension that seemed to work well, will try to get roll-away next time. We were very close to the elevators but didn't hear too much noise as expected, nice surprise.  Read entire member review.
It is a balcony cabin on the port side. The location is about 8-10 cabins down from the Atrium elevators. I heard very little hallway noise. Very little movement. The beds were left together and it has a couch, rather the size of a small love seat, since it was too short even for my 5 5 frame. There is an upper that the cabin will steward let down, if needed. The upper over hangs the bed buy about 4 inches and if you are not careful you will whack your head when you sit up. The TV is the old style. There are (2) 110 electric outlets in the vanity area as well as the 220. There is a hair dryer mounted to the wall in the bathroom. Its rather odd looking and the tube does get hot if you keep it on very long. I have short hair and it took a long time to dry it, I cant imagine trying to dry long hair with it. This is the 1st bathroom that had a cabinet to store you personal items in. Its a 3-4 tier mirrored shelf/cabinet with a door. Its very convenient and easier to keep the bathroom tidy. There is no fridge in the cabin. There is ample storage in the closets and under the bed as well as several shelves in the other small closets at the end of the bed. The in room safe works with a card that has a swipe on the back. The beds were a bit harder then I have had in the past, conversely the mattress on the couch was very soft. There are several pillows on the bed, but I bring my own. The balcony door is not as heavy and was pretty easily opened by my 3 year old. There is a latch that can be opened by any smart toddler that can climb on the bed and reach! I made sure that I kept the latch looked and made sure the kids understood to not go out the door without me. The balcony had better chairs then the on the Liberty. Those were too low to the ground and made it difficult getting up and down if you have a back injury, as I do. These chairs were more a normal height. There was also a small table. There was no ashtray, I did ask several times and one was never provided. My daughter used a half filled water bottle instead. I dont smoke and I only smelled cigar smoke once, while out on my balcony. I was between two other cabins who smoked, and even with asthma it never bothered me.  Read entire member review.
8285---good location, plenty of space. No issues.  Read entire member review.
8293 Great balcony with plenty of storage. Good sized bathroom and enjoyed the robes. The bed was a little bit too firm. 8323 Great balcony with plenty of storage. Nice bathroom with large storage area. Good sized underbed area to fit large suitcases. Only drawback was the noise from the Lido deck. Was a chair or lounger scrapping noise comming thru ceiling. All different times of day and night. 8407 Great handicap room. Very accomodating for a wheel chair. They provided sharps container, refridge for insulin, and shower chair. Plenty of storage area too. TV set located in hard to watch area at one end of room. Cabin was long and narrow.  Read entire member review.

Nice room, a little dated, but plenty of storage and the balcony is nice. We were worried about noise from the Lido deck above, but we did not really have any problem with this. This cabin is below the mid-ship pool on the Lido deck, but I think it is below an area behind the bar area, so we did not hear chairs scraping all day. We could hear a bit of the music and the DJ from above when we were on our balcony but it was not bad and only a few times did we hear movement from above while in our cabin room.

Loved the balcony cabin but heard much noise from the Lido deck upstairs. Unsure of what is was or exactly where it was coming from but it sounded as though something was being scooted on the floor all the time. Although it was somewhat frustrating, it wasn't enough for me to give up my balcony room.

8343 accomodated 4 cozily, but 8347 was great for 2 of us. However, I will try to avoid being under Lido deck again.  Read entire member review.
Great location under hong kong noodle. Only minimal chair scraping heard on one of the 5 mornings. Diaganol from the laundry room which is convienent for ironing or doing wash.  Read entire member review.
21 Day Back to Back by Torchwood

Dated room, no refrigerator. Could hear overhead noise from the buffet when they were rolling carts around. Also had a strong bleach smell in the early morning hours, the source could not be detected.

Our cabin was your typical balcony cabin. The Lido deck was directly above us and we did hear noise even though it was the carpeted area of the buffet restaurant. I would definitely recommend one deck lower. Also, the covering over our balcony extended out more than other balconies so we didn't get much direct sun. This was not the best side of the ship for New Orleans, Key West or Freeport. We did get the good side when arriving in Nassau as we were up early and had a panoramic view of Atlantis. We did have easy access to the South Beach restaurant above us on the Lido deck. We liked going up to get our coffee in the mornings and returning to our balcony.  Read entire member review.

We got the "let us pick your cabin" handed to us by our cruise coordinator and not by our choice. We were given cabin 8387. I really liked it for a couple of reasons and didn't like it for the noise. The cabin was on the veranda deck just 4 doors from the rear elevator which was extremely handy for zipping up 1 flight of stairs and the lido deck buffet was right there. Very handy for meals, a snack or a cool glass of lemonade. But the noise was very loud at times, especially bed time. Almost sounded like being in the basement of a bowling alley at times. Our room attendant was top notch.But they always are on every cruise we have been on.

Room showing it's age. Older tv not flat screen. No mini-fridge. Those were the only faults I found with room. It was clean and comfy just a little outdated. Balcony same size as the bigger ships. All in all a great cruise for the price $409 per person

We let carnival choose our balcony room since it was our first time cruising. We were on the Lido deck (9) in room 9261 w/ balcony. The room was larger than we had expected. 2 big enough closets and one with the safe and some extra storage space. Plenty of room under the bed to put our suitcases. Bathroom was a good size. Don't expect good water pressure in the shower. Really wish they would replace the TVS.. those things are OLD and bad! No hallway noise and we were right off from the main elevators. We used the beds as a King and were surprised the comfort! Balcony is great for morning coffee and just enjoying the ocean breeze and view! Perfect for 2 people but not much more than that!

Absolutely Nasty! by denverflier
The cabins were quite dated. Ours was a balcony cabin on Deck 7 forward. It was slightly larger than many other cruise lines with adequate storage and a slightly bigger bathroom. You got hot cold and warm water at the same time making taking a shower a challenge. The fixtures and furniture were all dinged and showing their age. You had a choice of no air or cold air. There was more than once when we stepped out of the cabin we were confronted with the strong stench of sewage. We never did learn where that was coming from. We experienced the sewage smell one night at the entrance to the Rome Theater.  Read entire member review.
