Great location, quiet, ample storage space.  Read entire member review.
Nice room with a great balcony. The bathroom was better than I expected. We were close to the elevators but had little or no noise from them. The room had a lot of storage space as well.  Read entire member review.
We had a balcony room with a small fridge which we had to get the steward to unlock in order to use it.The room appeared to be bigger than the one we had on Destiny and we enjoyed it.Stewards were very friendly and don't ask me how but they remembered our names.Bed was okay not as comfy as on the Sensation.Room location was close to elevators so getting on and off ship was quick and easy at our elevator access.Noise wasn't bad but if your a light sleeper this isn't the room for you.We had no trouble sleeping. Balcony was great for relaxing in private and we left our balcony door open every night to listen to the ocean and feel the cool breeze come in it was great weather to snuggle in.Bathroom was okay great hot water and shower pressure bathroom freebies were a nice touch-toothpaste Garnier shampoo and conditioner ,shaver etc.  Read entire member review.
We were in room 6273 close to elevators that take you down to level 0 to disembark for shore excursions or to level 3 to go thru custom so the cabin to me was in a good location. The room had a queen bed slightly firmer than my liking but comfy. The balcony was small with 2 chairs and a small table which was great for morning coffee or breakfast.We left the door open at night to hear the ocean it was great. Bathroom was of decent size with the typical amenities of toothpaste,a razor and a couple of packets of shampoo.On the shower wall typical Carnival shower and shampoo dispensers. Bathroom did have adequate shelf spacing so all of my toiletries from home were out and within reach. Decent closet and under bed space for storing suite cases after we unpacked. Mini fridge was great for keeping drinks cool but you have to ask your cabin steward to unlock it and take out the mini bar items inside.  Read entire member review.

Spring break....never again by mrs. mcgillicuddy

We had 6336 and 6332 and were very disappointed to discover that we couldn't open the balcony as they are "mirror rooms". As I booked through carnival and the agent knew we were traveling as a family I think he should have known this and told me so I could have chosen different cabins. Otherwise they were fine, a little noise from the casino below on the last few nights.

Standard Carnival balcony. Quiet other than the guests yelling in the hallway.  Read entire member review.
Not a bad cruise by wolfie2702
We heard some music, but was in walking distance to everything. we didn't even need the elevator!!  Read entire member review.

The balcony cabins in the mid-section of the ship are more than adequate for 2 people. Our cabin had beds that made into a kingsize, so individually, the beds are larger - that's a nice perk. Carnival does have very comfortable beds and pillows, also. The storage in the cabin is quite good with 3 closets (one is shelved), a cabinet, 2 nightstands with cabinets a desk with 4 drawers (there is a hair dryer and a Bible in the top desk drawer), and 6 shelves in the bathroom. The bathroom shower also has a retractable clothesline and wall mounted containers with shampoo and shower gel. The cabin has a chair and a couch, refrigerator, flat panel tv, and a safe. I don't think there are enough hangers in the closet - I always take extra. There are 2 bathrobes in the closet for use on the ship. The balcony has 2 upright chairs and a small, low table -- good to set a coffee cup on. Our steward, Arnold, was fantastic. We always wanted a lot of ice so he brought us a bucket like the bars put beer in and kept it - and our regular ice bucket - refilled twice daily.

Although with the location of our room, we had no noise from below. The laundry was enough down the hallway that we had no noise from that. The noise we had everyone gets too loud people in the hallways, but not too often, and a noisy neighbor. Our balcony was great with a good view, the room much larger than expected, nice sized closets and bathroom.  Read entire member review.

Basic balcony cabin... well designed...plenty of storage..great balcony..great TV..extremely comfortable beds and wonderful pillows. Warm comfortable robes. Great bathrooms unusual amount of space for toiletries... Wonderful shower. Only minus was hooks on the door had a poor design.

Great use of space. Plenty of room for clothing and toiletries. Great location. Not too noisy, and central to most things.  Read entire member review.
Meh by muskieman

Room was fine overall, brought a bungee cord to old the balcony door open.
But the walls were paper thin, nothing more awkward than hearing your neighbors going at it.

Near elevator which provided easy access to Casino, bars, etc. on 5th floor and then straight up to deck 9 to Red Sail Restaurant and a small pool at the back of the ship.  The cabin had good closet space and the bathroom seemed to be laid out well compared to others I've seen.  The sofa was worn but the ship is due to dry dock in 2010.  Overall, I would book this room again or one close to it!  Read entire member review.
Large balcony; great closets; bright and airy.....hidden away  Read entire member review.

We were in the most forward starboard balcony on the Empress Deck. Great balcony with protection from the rain (and sun) because of the overhang of the Bridge. Our only complaint was the noise in the middle of the night one time from the girls across the hall who apparently were partying hard on their spring break. We honestly enjoy seeing all age groups onboard--not just us old folks. It is great to see the couples, families and kids having fun.

Old farts on parade by trgraham12

7404 is a perfect spot if you like the aft area of the lido-two flights up and you are walking into the aft buffett-ice machine, juice and coffee right inside the door- out the back doors to the aft pool and bar. Elevator right there if you don't like the stairs. Nice balcony, quiet area. The aft area of the lido is mostly an older crowd and finding a spot in the shade was easy. The bar back here is the bomb!! Pizza and fish and chips as well as rear buffet all right there!

-8B Cat, balcony 8207 was nice, third room from front. - All odd numbered rooms faced the port when parked. I liked this. -Shower decent space/clean -Couch in room was plastic, odd angle of frame made it feel like you were falling forward and not comfortable -Beds looked aged but we fine sleeping -balcony deck enough room for 4 chairs -Doors whistle, so slamming is needed to stop it. Don't get mad at neighborhood slammers. This could be the cause. -Balcony was third from front with little to no wind, usually because the ship jutted out for the crew area to keep watch on the side of the boat for people throwing stuff out of rooms. Good location on the whole. -Walls are soundproofed well, but doors are not. You can hear every person talking in the hall as they passed. You could also hear talk from other balconies well. -You don't need night lights. They have three channels with serene scenes on the TV accompanied by three differing music choices. You can put one of these on very low and sleep with it on. -Only local news you get is from Denver. They had two national channels (HLN, Bloomsburg). We thought they were supposed to have ESPN channel in rooms, but they didn't. I think that it must have been available in the sports bar. Very inconvenient location for casual sports watching. -Recommend bringing air freshener for your personal bathroom. I use body mist in the 2oz size and it makes a nice environment out of a crappy situation. LOL - Try to bring something to decorate your doors. Announcements describing why your cruising is fun and entertaining. It is fun to see the birthday/anniversary/random/silly/special occasion announcements. And if you feel like bringing poster board, then setup a announcement where people can write comments on your occasion, such as best wishes and stuff.  Read entire member review.
Big closets, balcony door stays open by itself. Great location right under Lido deck and near stairs. A little noisy at night, but not bothersome. Nice balcony because there is an overhang from the Lido deck above us and it provides more shade than other balconies.  Read entire member review.

First Time Cruiser by Bill Shaw

We had a balcony and connecting rooms, so we were able to open the balcony and it was perfect for the 6 of us. Room was nice, clean and staff did an excellent job in keeping it clean and fresh. No complaints.
