Small cabin, small patio even after we opened it between our two staterooms. Difficult for a family of four to sit there all at once. Definitely Not worth the rice upgrade. Read entire member review >>
Over the Toulouse-Letrec Lounge...aft, about 9 cabins from the front. Yes, you could hear the noise from the shows, but typically, it got quiet by 11. We didn't spend much time in our cabin at night, but some shows started at 9:15 am...we heard music (muffled) but it wasn't terrible. Not near elevators. They washed the balcony twice...and the partition had to be tightened up by a rolled up towel...otherwise it banged. Read entire member review >>
We were in a balcony cabin #6251. It was just a few cabins from the front elevators. It was quiet. This was a standard balcony-180 square feet plus 40 square foot balcony. It had a sofa instead of a desk and chair. Read entire member review >>
Cabin itself was OK. BUT it was directly above the O2 club. It was very loud will into the wee hours of the morning. Concierge refused to do anything. Wouldn't move us or anything. Not very restful as a result of all the noise. Apparently teen nightlife is more important than a paying adult customer. Read entire member review >>
Very nice cabin-plenty of storage room. The sofa was a little uncomfortable to sit on-it was too wide to have back support and the slick surface caused you to slip down. Our steward was friendly and efficient. We were toward the aft of the ship, Deck 6. Easy to take the stairs up to the Lido buffet or down to the restaurant. The showroom was the only really distant walk. Read entire member review >>
Good. Only one 110 volt outlet in the entire room which makes charging phones and iPads a challenge. No clocks in the room or where one would expect them (pool, dining rooms, casino, etc.). Room size was adequate for 7 day trip. Room was clean. Shower drain was slow. Read entire member review >>
This was a handicap balcony room. Very roomy. Bathroom was huge with lots of storage. The bathrooms were large enough to store my husbands scooter in the shower so it freed up the space in the room, as my husband is up and down a lot during the night. It had a nice couch and the balcony was good sized. We LOVE to place our morning breakfast order the night before and have delivered to the room at a specified time. Every single day, they were within 5 minutes of our requested time. Nice job Carnival!!!
My only complaint (and it isn't really a complaint) was the light switch was right next to the emergency call switch, so we accidently hit that a time or two. It resulted in a phone call to our state room checking in on us to make sure all was well. Sorry Carnival! Read entire member review >>
Unless you like to sit up till the late show in the theater is over this isn't the cabin for you. It is right above the theater where the speakers are mounted on the ceiling. Needless to say very noisy and beds actually vibrated from the noise. Read entire member review >>
We were offered an upgrade the week before sailing, and ended up in an accessible balcony room. Wide doors, ramp to get out on the balcony, and huge bathroom! I will tell you this, that bathroom was worth the price of the room! The bed was really comfortable! I slept great. Our balcony door had 2 locks, and I couldn't close them, my husband had to do it every time - and if both locks weren't closed it whistled really loud. You had to lift up and pull in to get them to slide over... We didn't use it all that much though because the door to the front deck was next to our room, so we'd just go out there most of the time. That was kind of annoying at night though, the outer door slams, so every time someone went in or out we heard it. We did find old papers from the prior 2 cruises both under the bed and behind the tables... so it wasn't all that clean. Read entire member review >>
Loved the window in the balcony room and had plenty of room . Our son and daughter came in for a birthday party for me and we had plenty of space,Shower was roomy and my son loved checking out the movement of the ship by watching the towels in the bathroom because it was the only place you could even tell the ship was moving.

We stayed in cabin 8368 and it was a great balcony cabin mid-ship. It was a typical balcony cabin on Carnival lines and it fit our needs perfectly. We enjoyed the comfortable chairs on the balcony as well as the 3 closets within the cabin. It was also a perfect deck location as the lido deck with pools and buffet were within stair climbing!

8381 Nice deck, nice cabin. Great view.. But.. there is a noise from the steward preparation area across the hall. It starts at 11 pm every night, and goes for about 30 minutes. Then at about 4-5 am it sounds like a race of carts above the cabin. Not sure where the noise comes from. But it woke us up every night without fail. We would not book this cabin again because of the noise. If you do, Bring ear plugs or a sound machine.. It is that bad. 8383 and 8385 have the same trouble. Read entire member review >>
We were on the Upper deck room 6220. Our room steward john David was great and the room was nice. The balcony had a great view without any obstructions. The room was quiet with hall traffic and noise from the decks above and below. My only complaint would be our neighbors in room 6222 who kept slamming their balcony door constantly!!

Cabin- We had a balcony cabin on the port side of the Upper Deck. Very nice and clean cabin.
I was concerned about the view, being over the life boats. But it was a perfect view. Our
cabin was sort of in the front just as the waves were breaking. Very quiet room. Read entire member review >>
We booked an oceanview a few months ago with CruiseVacationOutlet.com. They are really cool because it is the SAME exact price that you pay Carnival, except depending on how much your rate is, you get an onboard credit! Our onboard credit was $100. Anyway, we originally booked an oceanview, but I was checking the prices a few days before my cruise and I saw that they had dropped drastically, so I called my agent at Cruise Vacation Outlet, and she was able to upgrade us to a balcony room for only $40. Amazing. We loved our balcony room. We will never be able to cruise without one now. The room was very large. It had a pull out sofa, king size bed, three large closets, and an adequate bathroom. There were only two things. One: if you need an outlet next to the bed, bring an extension cord. My fiance has a CPAP machine and the cord didn't reach. We had to borrow one from Guest Services. They put a $25 charge on his account until it was returned. It was just a hassle... Also bring a splitter. There is only ONE outlet. Two: the TV kinda sucked. It was an old tube TV with a bad screen. They really should update them. The room was obviously kept very clean and tidy by our cabin steward. Read entire member review >>
Great cabin! It's small of course, but plenty of closet space and drawers (we had 2 adults in the room). Bathroom is also small but enough space for both of us to keep our toiletries. We were worried about being at the very front (and one of the top decks) that it might be rougher up here but we had no problems, no seasickness, etc. It was quieter than we thought it might be since there is a door to the outside front deck right next to our room; but, that deck is locked off at night so there wasn't a bunch of traffic going out there late. Also, even though we were under the spa deck we never heard a sound from up there.Bed was comfortable. Room steward and staff were great! Read entire member review >>
room# 6481 rear "L" shaped room that we really enjoyed! there is NO couch in this room but the balcony is long!! The bathroom is also right next to the bed just in case that bothers someone!! We loved being able to wake up and lay in bed facing the water through the big 2 windows!!! the other rooms the bed faces the TV. have to go through a little door to get to this room and it made it so I NEVER heard any hall noise, It is above the rear lounge but we never heard any noise at night!!

Our cabin on the Upper Deck of the Conquest, # 6222, was located on the port side and very forward towards the bow. It is located directly above the main show lounge (Toulouse-Lautrec). The sound of the Conquest show band resonated into this cabin during the early shows whenever we were in our cabin after finishing our early dining evening meal.
This cabin is located a good distance away from the forward stairs and elevators so we were not bothered by many passersby or those waiting patiently for an elevator.
The only unsatisfactory aspect of this balcony cabin occurred on the night before our last sea day as the ship was buffeted by "gale force" winds coming across the starboard bow. ["Gale force" was the description used on the Conquest information channel on the cabin TV] Our balcony door, though shut tight and locked, allowed the wind to whistle in and balcony chairs near our cabin moved around throughout the night, scraping on the balcony deck flooring and bulkhead. This awakened us numerous times and also awakened our relatives who were three cabins more forward on the same port side as we were located.
My wife eventually used ship's towels and jammed them into the door cracks in an attempt to minimize the whistling wind...it helped, but did not eliminate all of the noise. Read entire member review >>
