Cabin #5152--not a bad location, quiet. The porter did a great job, clean,nice balcony, closets were ok, hot water was good, bathroom was ok, room is nice for a ship.  Read entire member review.
5161
Room 5161 is an obstructed view balcony. The room is the standard size with 2 twins that can be put together to form a queen(maybe?). This room also has the sofa bed as well as the upper berth that folds down from the ceiling above the couch. It has the standard 3 closets, which is plenty of room even for four people. Even our largest suitcases slid easily under the bed. The bathroom is cramped but adequate. One problem we noticed is that water tends to stand in the shower; hopefully that is not a persistent problem. The balcony was very nice but small of course. It was perfect for our needs of just being able to get some air or watch the waves. The cabin is not particularly close to the elevators but is very quiet with very little traffic passing by. We never heard any noise from the crew or passengers in the adjacent rooms.  Read entire member review.

Our room 5173: Great location- centrally located, but not too close to the elevators. Our room was apparently on of the few with a flat screen tv! Starboard side is not as interesting of a view as port side in my opinion. TONS of storage space. It felt big inside. Comfy bed. Room temp. was able to be controlled easily. Comfy couch, big enough fridge. Plus it comes with toilettries like lotion and shavers and shower gel. We booked the obstructed view, so we were on the 5th floor, mid ship. The obstruction wasn't so bad, but you really can't look down. Advice: If you're ok with taking a gamble, book the balcony guarantee category, b/c the worst you'll get is the obstructed view, so why pay extra unless you want a really good upgrade. That said, my mistake was letting the dishonest agent at priceline.com talk me into paying extra for the obstructed. Yep, bad business, and when I called to complain (and emailed) customer service would not help or apologize. DON'T BOOK WITH PRICELINE- book with Carnival directly!  Read entire member review.

Legend is great by jhg20852
Clean, functional, spacious cabin, we had a basic balcony. I do not understand why the news on the TV is from Denver. Since the ship leaves from Florida, can't we have news from Florida?  Read entire member review.

This cabin is in the middle of the boat.  When we stood on the balcony and looked down you would see a life boat.  The balcony has 2 chairs and a table and was nice to have.  The bathroom is small maybe 4ft by 5ft.  We only had 3 in our room.  I brought shoe boxes to keep bathroom items in because the bathroom does not have any drawers or storage areas.  The cabin had 3 closets about 2ft wide by 8 ft tall.  One closet had one bar to hang items, one had 2 bars for hanging the other had 3 shelves not including the floor space.  We felt very comfortable in the room.  Big mirrors and luggage fit under the beds.   Read entire member review.

Legendary Christmas Cruise by cruisinbanddirectors

We had a 7A obstructed balcony, but it was nice. The top of the life boats were about even with our floor level on the balcony. No obstruction at all looking straight out, but you could not look down and see the water. I would get this same room again.  Read entire member review.
5181
Cabin 5181 is Obstructive View Balcony. However the room size is the standard room and the balcony is a good value. Your view is not obstructed if you are looking straight our or sitting down looking out. However, you can not see straight down because there is a lifeboat at your feet. There are the 3 closets and this room does not allow you to hand that over the door organizer many people pack. The bathroom has 3 shelves on both sides of the mirror so you really do not need the organizer for your personal items. The location was quiet (at least on this cruise).  Read entire member review.
5182

5182 is an obstructed balcony stateroom. We could see the water from our beds; it is hardly obstructed by lifeboats. We could sit in our chairs on the balcony and see everything. The third bed is a sofa. It was too hard and they gave us a real mattress on top. The shower is big, small lip to step over. Hand held shower massage, great pressure, settings worked. Room for a shower chair. Three closets and plenty of storage in the bedroom and bath. Room darkening curtains work! Best lighting of any ship. If you want it bright it has surround ceiling lights!

5185
For us 5185 on the Legend was so so and it may have been because for the 1st time ever we had some lousy neighbors. When they weren't yelling at each other they were smoking like crazy on the balcony and I can't handle smoke, hate the smell (upsets my stomach) and I have a bad heart. For the price though 5185 had plenty of room, all 4 suitcases fit under the bed and my wife and I had plenty of hangers and closet/drawer space for our clothes. 5185 is an obstructed view because of the lifeboats but they are the smaller lifeboats and the opening between two of them is at this balcony, on the left side of the balcony.  Read entire member review.

It was nice to have a balcony but this was had an extremely obstructed view. In addition to the life boat just under us, we also had a wall to the left so you could not look out to that side at all.  Read entire member review.
5228
Excellent location; lifeboat only blocks view straight down. Still a huge beautiful view of the water; great while in port or at sea. close enough to aft elevator but very quiet, no noise. Also great to be near aft elevator as that's where the dining is both down to MDR and up to Lido. Super location, would book this room or a room in this area again in a heartbeat.  Read entire member review.

Great time by peoriacruisers
Good value for the money we had cabins 5227 and 5229 both obstructed balcony staterooms 5229 was slightly nicer when it came to the balcony 5227 was on the end and was slightly smaller and had a small wooden step right outside the door. The life boats were at the bottom of the balcony floor and only obstructed the view down not out  Read entire member review.

Great Balcony even with the lifeboats at floor level. Didn't bother us at all. Great value for the money.  Read entire member review.
5237
Obrstructed (somewhat) view balcony, really close to the elevators. Ample close space, with lots of storage space. The location was pretty quiet, and we didn't hear anyone from either above us or below us. Really good location. Would book it again.  Read entire member review.

Triple length balcony (narrow though) Limited closet space No sofa Handicapped bathroom  Read entire member review.
5245
We had cabin 5245 - a special handicapped cabin. The cabin runs north-south apposed to east-west like most cabins. This resulted in a balcony about twice the size of an average balcony. It was "slightly" obstructed, the slightly being from your knees down was blocked by the lifeboats, very little obstruction. The bathroom was about twice the size of an average ship bathroom with a large shower that included a bench. The only problem may be with a wheelchair, it may be nearly impossible to get out to the balcony with the large step over - no ramp, and the balcony is very narrow, I am not sure a wheelchair could turn around?  Read entire member review.

No cabins were across from us so we thought it would be quiet but we had a very noisy cabin above us.  Constantly heard running back and forth so it must have been a family with a small child.  Very annoying.  Read entire member review.

Cabin was great - had the bed pulled together for a King and the couch was made up to sleep my son.  Read entire member review.

We had a handicapped cabin on the 7th floor. It was small, but adequate. The bathroom was well equipped for handicapped, but the balcony was inaccessible by wheelchair and the closet was small. It was nicely appointed. This cabin is in a great location in regards to the elevators, a real asset if you have a wheelchair!  Read entire member review.
