Fantastic cabin for a solo traveler - same size as all other Carnival cabins, has the twin/king bed configuration (unlike the 1A's), and is priced as an inside. I paid $84/day. Very clean and well kept. Plenty of storage. Even though the cabin is forward, I didn't feel any more motion there than at other parts of the ship. Nice and quiet. Bathroom had been redone and looked "new" but very little shelf space and the usual clinging shower curtain. I'd definitely book this cabin again.  Read entire member review.
Plenty of room, great bargain, love the port holes, vibrates strongly when docking but overall very quiet  Read entire member review.
Tiny bathroom, plenty of closet space in a very quiet location. The porthole was clean and could see for miles.  Read entire member review.
The Ecstasy was Agony! by Getaway Gal
Plenty of storage space, but you need to bring a mesh shower caddy that you can get at the Dollar General Store. Sometimes it sounds like people are doing aerobics or bowling in the hallway above your room. It is an interior price, but you have a view through the portholes. Being in the front of the ship did not bother us at all. It really did not have any additional movement than our previous midship cabin.  Read entire member review.

This room is surprisingly well laid out and we did not feel cramped at all. The porthole cubby provided more visual space, as well as shelf space, and we absolutely enjoyed staying in this stateroom. (And I'm typically a balcony-needy cruiser!)
If you want to shave your legs in the shower, this just won't work. Not without a great deal of dexterity and flexibility, as the shower is a simple stall.
There was absolutely a faint smell of sewage in this cabin from time to time. I had brought some febreeze and sprayed it occasionally. This did the trick, so if you get this cabin - don't forget some air freshener or spray so you don't have to smell faint poo.

Front, port side, porthole cabin. Close to elevator, and main theater, but very far from food.

Nothing in the Lavatory works correctly. toilet does not clear everything, Sink lights are burnt out. No glassware. Hardly any storage space. Sink stopper when activated, will not release. Don't turn shower up to 50 degrees, you will not be able to turn it back to a normal temperature.

Other then these inconveniences the room was ok. A bit small. No refrig. No ice bucket. Little storage space. But comfortable. Some sound from thrusters when docking. Occasional wave sounds hitting the sides. 2 Portholes give good light and vision.

Awesome trip! by Margiep
U1 was pretty roomy, nice safe, closet, beds pushed together held 2 big people and one child. A/C was really cool if you chose it that way.  Read entire member review.
Very spacious for a solo traveler. Very comfortable bed. Sparsely furnished - chair and stool but no sofa. Plenty of closet and storage space. Clean, and kept that way by the stewards. Carnival still supplies bathrobes, and they're nice and plush. Beach towels were replaced every day - if you're traveling by yourself, you still get 2 of these in the cabin. Bathroom is small but efficient with good water pressure and a really REALLY blue rubberized floor. The combination of the portholes and the shape of the ship made a really neat window box to sit in and read. You can also close the porthole covers if you want.  Read entire member review.
Mixed review by Dan816
Nice cabin. It's a bit of a walk from the elevator/stairway, which also means there is less traffic outside. The portholes are small, but it's nice to see outside without paying for it.  Read entire member review.
Room small, porthole nice, at end of hallway, little to no noise from hallway. Ship only noisy when pulling into port one morning. Could definitely feel the boat rocking, which we like but obviously could be bad for others. Could put our suitcases in the platform to the porthole. Enough closet space for the two of us. Would book again.  Read entire member review.
