Deck 2, cabin 2293. Lower balcony deck, noticed much less swaying of the boat than our friends on the upper decks 7-9 Great location with no one or room above you. Great to see the ocean and ports.  Read entire member review.
Carnival Magic by melody23402
We had a balcony room and it was great, except for the adjoining room. If you are not cruising with family make sure you don't have an adjoining room. We had 3 women staying in the room next to us and we could hear every word they said till all hours of the night. It lead to 4 nights of waking to screams of laughter at all hours of the night. We finally had to knock on their door and ask them to please keep it down for the rest of the cruise. The folks on the other side we didn't even know they were there. So it would be in anyone's best interest to make sure they don't have an adjoining room.  Read entire member review.

The cabin was nice. It didn't have any funny smells or anything like that. We had some very windy nights with some nearby storms. We only heard our curtains creak a little. This cabin had an LCD TV, and we had had CRT TV's in the past. Deck 5 was wide on this ship, so if you look straight down you will see it instead of water. I was somewhat disappointed with this because I always liked to look straight down and see water.

Good cabin, perfect location, close to stairs and elevator banks. We found it to be quiet. Some have remarked about noise from the hot tubs on deck 5, we didn't find this to be of concern. Would sail in this cabin or cabin location again.  Read entire member review.
Nice balcony on upper deck. Was quiet and did not experience any issues with cabin or location.  Read entire member review.
ample room, close to elevators, not too noisy at all, despite other reviews I read about rooms on deck 6!!  Read entire member review.
Located directly over Redfrog Pub, so we could hear the music and people while we were in the room. It did not keep us awake, though.  Read entire member review.

We were in room 7250 and were very happy with it. I would have liked to be closer to the pool and buffet, but it was a great stateroom.  Read entire member review.
Our room was aft, on the port side of the ship. We were next to the balcony that starts wrapping around the back of the ship. We could see front & back of the ship pretty good from our balcony. We felt this room was in a quiet area, since there isn't much traffic, other than the ones who have rooms at the end of the hall. We had plenty of storage - 3 closets, and one that had 3 shelves. Plenty of room to unload all of our suitcases. We had 5 suitcases, and the stored under the bed easily. The dresser area is very roomy with 5 drawers. There is a hairdryer in one of the drawers. It's not super-powerful, but was fine for the week, so you don't have to bring your own. We brought a power strip, but I think I remember at least 3 plugs at the dresser area - so we really didn't need it. There is also a plug in the bathroom, but we never used it. The kingsize bed was very comfy. There is also a full size couch and coffee table in the room. The balcony had 2 chairs and a table. We enjoyed the extra outside room the balcony gave us. One whole wall of our cabin was window & balcony door, so we had a beautiful view. The bathroom was very roomy also. The shower had great water pressure. We never had any trouble with our shower curtain sticking too us, so there wasn't any need for the clothes pins at the bottom that some suggest. We did use the clothes pins on the shower's clothes line to dry our bathing suits at night though. There is shower gel and shampoo in the shower. I would suggest bringing your own conditioner, though. There is a refrigerator in the dresser area. We asked our steward the first day if we could stow our own cokes in the fridge, and take out their drinks, which he agreed to. There is also a safe in the dresser area, that has a keypad lock. It was big enough for all of our valuables, iPad, Kindles, money, etc. I don't think it could hold a full size laptop. The room steward kept us supplied with clean towels at all times. He kept our room spotless. There are two very nice robes in the room. We loved the room, and the two of us never felt cramped at all.  Read entire member review.

Deck 9 is right below the pool deck. Lots of noise, deck chairs being moved during the night, etc. Advise against Deck 9 mid-ship. Go forward, and you will be OK. Also I noticed that the Oceanside BBQ (really, just an outdoor, unvented grill) on Deck 5 generated a considerable amount of smoke. Feel real bad for those balconies right above it on Decks 6+.  Read entire member review.
The cabin we stayed in was a balcony very comfortable but the hangers in the wardrobes were very difficult to use and inconvenient. The bathroom was fine but there was no hair conditioner. They would vacum at 5/6 in the morning waking us up and in the afternoon when we were relaxing.  Read entire member review.
