6278 2 beds put together to make a big one, only problem is as you sleep the beds spread apart a bit and you fall in the crack. Couch isn't all that great, but you don't spend much time in there sitting on your couch! Balcony is nice, though the chairs don't really fit out there comfortably.  Read entire member review.
our cabins were very nice. we always get balconies. we were in 6283 and 6285. they were pretty quiet except when the singers sang in the American lobby from 9-12pm.! the sound carried up. there was plenty of closet space and the balconies were very nice. we were lucky to not be next to any smokers, so we were able to enjoy our balcony.  Read entire member review.
Wonderful by lesleywoollard

Very good size, spotlessly clean, room service available. Room cleaned daily. This cabin was above the bar area but we did not hear any noise. Plenty of cupboard space. Balcony had two chairs and a small table so nice to sit out on if you want some privacy. We were more than happy with this cabin.

Great Trip by KillerKev

We were offered an upgrade to this cabin after initially booking an interior....what a tremendous thing that was. We thoroughly enjoyed our cabin and its roominess. It was so very nice to be able to have a place of solitude on which to enjoy morning coffee. We were delighted with this cabin...I would recommend bringing along a daily dose of Dramamine as we noticed quite a difference between this cabin and the interior cabin amidship we had last year. Seemed to be a lot of rocking and rolling...but with a daily dose of Dramamine we had absolutely no trouble at all.

Paradise Found by esoteric escort
the cabins are small, true! but who wants to spend time in their cabin other than to sleep and shower? one bit of advice: this was our own fault and nothing against any cruise line...... DO NOT MAKE RESERVATIONS FOR 3 ADULTS IN ONE CABIN. Friendships will be lost! There were 3 of us, 2 men and one woman (friends only, nothing else) and by the 7th day, we had fully gotten on each others' nerves.  Read entire member review.
Great Cruise! by freddy penguin
Small for three people, did not notice any noise even though the casino is below it, not enough hanging closet space  Read entire member review.
Carnival Valor 27/10/12 by barbadosbeachbum
We were in cabin 6343, and the room had tons of space. We were only two of us, so we didn't even use up all the space provided. The balcony space was decent, but because we were just above the Casino Bar, the music went until 12:30 every night and was really loud. This could obviously be disturbing for anyone with kids or people who want to sleep before that time. During the day, it was nice and quiet and you are, literally, mid-ship.  Read entire member review.
Mostly not an issue, but at times, the band below was very loud. Plenty of space, very comfortable beds. Loads of closet space.  Read entire member review.
Center of ship, large shower stall, nice balcony, was directly over the entertainment by the casino, so some nights you heard the singer.  Read entire member review.

Room was comfortable but very basic, There was a lack of draw space and the night tables did not have a draw and were not very useful.

beyond my wildest dreams! by
Carnival Valor 6382 was a very quiet balcony cabin. It was in the center of the ship and one floor up from promenade.  Read entire member review.
cruising with teens by bob and annie
Balcony with stunning view, very private but not soundproof.  Read entire member review.
Room: We booked balcony rooms and had the divider opened between the 2. We had rooms 6398 and 6400. This was the perfect set up. Our son could sleep in the room with grandma, have his own bed instead of a couch and still move freely between the 2 rooms via the balcony. Unfortunately, these rooms were located right above the One Small Step Dance Club. This proved to be a disaster :) You could not hear the music, but the base from the music was sooo loud it vibrated the floor, walls and bed from our cabins. You could even see ripples moving through the water in our glasses. We could not turn the TV up loud enough to drown out the noise. We made multiple complaints to guest services at times begging them to please turn it down as it went full force until 3:30 am each morning. My initial frustration is the guest services attendants appeared amazed that there was a complaint. Carnival did address our concerns appropriately. The ship was initially full, but someone debarked on the first port and we were given their balcony room. We no longer had the adjoining balcony set up we were so happy about, but they did give us 3 keys to the other room so our son would have a key to both. The cabins were on the same floor and relatively close ... just the new one did not come with additional noise. All 4 of us were refunded some money on our accounts for the inconvenience and we all thought it was a fair amount. * I would hope in the future Carnival would treat these rooms like an "obstructed view" and add a disclaimer during booking. I am certain there is a population of their customers that would not be bothered by the noise... however, I feel comfortable saying most unsuspecting grandparents and families are.  Read entire member review.
Very Noisy Location. Was directly across from Crew Space. Could hear them at all hours of the night banging the doors coming and going. It is only one floor above the Casino so the smell of smoke greeted us every time we left the room and at times could smell the smoke in the room. The crew has cart with a squeaking wheel that went up and down the hall at all hours of the night.  Read entire member review.

I would not book the back of the ship for a room as it was pretty rocky the first few nights and we were above a dance club so noise was there.

Great, quiet location beneath bridge. Upholstery faded; window coverings worn; furnishings tired. Bed very comfortable. Toilet bowl disconcertingly darkened with wear.

Fabulous Cruise by kiwibor

Large balcony cabin - decent size balcony. Plenty of storage space, and ample room in bathroom for toiletries.

We were in cabin E7400 and I would not ever book that cabin again. It was very noisy being near the elevators. The room was fine, storage was awesome and the balcony, although small, was just fine. I just would not want to be near the elevators again. The deck "Empress" is great as it is sandwiched between decks with just staterooms.

Noisy and stinky due to the smokers on each side. We could hardly use our balcony. What a waste.

We were very happy with our balcony room. I would suggest a higher deck than 6 because we could hear noise from the bars when we went to bed early.  Read entire member review.
