This type of accommodation gives you a view beyond your stateroom, out to the observation deck outside. Staterooms feature two twin beds (convert to a king), one upper pullman, and a single sofa bed, sofa and coffee table, desk and seat, and a full bathroom with shower.
This is a HC cabin. It had a 36" entry door and bathroom door, and the bathroom was twice as big as standard Carnival. Shower was also twice as long, so the usual claustrophobia was solved. This one was in the corner of the front of the ship, so it was more spacious than the usual room.
Storage was more limited. Only a double floor-to-ceiling hanging closet, 1/2 of one had drawers in it, instead of the standard 3 closets and separate drawers, so if you need storage space for clothes, remember that. The window had a "sky" view, as there was a wall outside for the railing, so no ocean view, but at least sunlight.
I would certainly take it again, but since it is a handicapped room, I assume it would be hard to get on a constant basis.
Nice spacious accessible cabin. The location was nice for walking out onto the front of the ship. The bathroom was big and there was no step up, which was nice. The beds were adequate, but a little firm. It appears some space was given up in terms of storage for the accessible cabin size. It was difficult finding place for our belongings.

Our stateroom/cabin was 10205 on Lido and described as "an interior with a walk away view". I have to say it, we've always booked balcony cabins and mostly aft with extended balconies - but we will always look for this cabin and it's availability first when I book from now on. With smoking not allowed now, my husband still does, a balcony isn't worth the expense really. Well unless you're doing the Panama Canal or Alaska I guess. This also was a first for us on Lido Deck, oh we loved it, and Steve only had to walk up a flight of stairs to be able to smoke (port side on Deck 11). Outside our cabin door was the first door to the balcony that ran across the front of the ship on Lido Deck and as far as we're concerned .. the place to begin and end your day in port. The room itself was huge for the two of us .. our Steward "Soni" was beyond kind and caring. Also "India" who worked along side him. Always a greeting always a smile and our room was kept spotless and "iced". They were the best stewards we've ever had on a cruise. We had no noise from any outside source - our bed "rocked" but it was soothing to us. I didn't feel it was any rougher at the front of the ship than any other part. I was afraid it might so I decided to take Bonine but stopped that after about 3 days and had no problem whatsoever. If you're on the fence about taking this category cabin ... I say grab it ;) :)
