Interior Cabins 25 Reviews
Inside stateroom with twin beds that convert to a king. Every Carnival guest is assured of spacious, comfortable accommodations. All staterooms have carpeting, ample drawer and closet space, private facilities (shower, basin and toilet), telephone and color television showing first-run films. Our ships all feature staterooms above ocean level for a more comfortable cruise.

We had cabin 7286 on the Empress deck. Great room. We had never been on the Dream before and had never taken an interior cabin on a 7 nighter, we always take a balcony. The location is great, very near the Atrium elevators, but not so close as to be noisy. Empress is a great deck as the most experienced stewards are on this deck (as are the best suites.) Had an issue with shower drain that was quickly taken care of. We we pleasantly surprised that the room was big enough for a 7 night stay. Overall.....I would reserve a balcony on future 7 night cruises. The interior is completely adequate and probably a much better value, but we are spoiled with balcony rooms.  Read entire member review.

We had an interior cabin on this cruise. On previous Carnival cruises, we have had an interior cabin, porthole cabin, ocean view, and balcony. We selected interior on the Dream because we had 4 port stopsm 4 days in a row, and didn't feel we would be in the cabin enough to justify the expense of a window or balcony. I was shocked to discover that the interior cabin was half the size of the previous one we had stayed in. There was a king-sized bed, a small nightstand on either side, and a dresser at the foot of the bed, and that was it. No chair, no couch, no coffee table, nothing. The tv hung on the wall, with a safe and fridge below it. The fridge was stocked full of beverages. The room was the size of the bed with a small aisle around it. The bathroom was also much smaller...half size shower with the toilet in the corner where the other half of the shower is on the other Carnival ships. We had looked over the cabin pictures carefully on the Carnival site, but the photos were shot from the vantage point that it was not easy to see just how small the cabin really was. Do not book an interior cabin on the Dream unless you are prepared to literally spend no time in the cabin except for showering and sleeping, as you will be eating your room service sandwich in bed, crumbs and all. Also, there is a sewage smell in the hallways of the 8th floor.  Read entire member review.

What a Dream! by jraj0506
Cabins with uppers need to be a little bit bigger. Hard to have 4 people in a room built for 2.  Read entire member review.
8355
We decided on an interior room this cruise - we loved our balcony last cruise on the Legend but figured that a balcony and a 2.5 year old typical boy would not go well together. We were in 8355 which was a great location. We were close enough to the elevators to make them easy to get to but not close enough to hear any elevator noise. Jay our main man for housekeeping was great. I really liked the design of the room. You walk in and the small but livable bathroom is on the left. Three 6 foot tall closets line the right wall. The room then opens up with a king bed in the center flanked by two small night stands each with a lamp. On the wall shared with the bathroom is the mirror with a small table and a vanity stool. The wall past the closets has the nice TV above a small table top with the safe and mini bar. Our room had a pull down bed that folds into the wall. We just kept it down the whole time along with the ladder. We did hit our heads a few times but learned quickly For our purposes, the room was perfect. My only wish is a bath but that will not happen at that price point. It is just easier with a 2.5 year old to use a bath. Any screaming heard from our room was him yelling about the shower, poor kid. The pull down bed. For those with young kids - the pull down bed is definitely OK for older kids. There are rails preventing rolling off away from the wall. There is space between the head of the bed and the wall, which was my only source of anxiety. The foot of the bed also has no rails. The ladder is supposed to go on the left foot of the bed but goes at the end foot of the bed since the king bed is below the pull out. We felt comfortable having our 2.5 year old up there, even with me being a pediatrician.  Read entire member review.
8425
Cabin 8425 is an inside cabin. It has cabins above and below only a few doors down from a stairwell. The only night we heard our neighbors was the last night when they were having a party in their room we turned on the TV and tuned them out. Cabin stewards were great both knew our names and the rest of our families names on the 1st day. We also had cabin 8426 on the other side, it was also an inside 2 door down from the stairwell. Again very nice cabin stewards.  Read entire member review.

I have one complaint. But its with carnival not with the dream. We always travel in balconies. This time we booked interior. They said balcony is 185 sq ft and interior is 185 sq ft. That is not true at all. We will take that up with carnival. But where in balcony room u have a couch, table, king beg, vanity, two nightstands and room to walk. In interior we had king bed vanity nightstands and no room to walk. What happened to sitting area. There is no way the rooms are the same size at 185 sq ft. Live and learn but we are never going interior again.  Read entire member review.
