A typical Carnival Balcony in a great location, provided you're a bit of a night owl. It's right by the Lobby elevators, and the nightly music will keep up someone trying to go to bed early. If you don't mind that, it's right by the forward elevators, which was super convenient for getting on and off the ship. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was great. We could see into the bridge from our room, so it did interfere with our view a little, but no big deal. We had rough seas for this trip and I would have preferred to be in the middle or back close to the middle for comfort. Read entire member review >>
Lot of noise on above floor, mopping banging, very hard to sleep. Air conditioner broke last 4 days we were given a fan, they offered to move us to an inside cabin, but what a hassle to pack, move and unpack, then few days later pack again so we refused just wanted air fixed.just outside room they would cart framed art across threshold 6 am in morning.

Head Steward, Kokoa, did an excellent job keeping our cabin clean and in order. He gave us whatever we asked for. He remembered our names every time he saw us. There were several repairs that needed done in the cabin, but that was not his problem. The ship is getting old and needs a lot of repairs. Read entire member review >>
Beautiful room. As mentioned above, would like to have a handle for stepping in and out of bathroom. Especially for rough seas. Also, an electrical outlet in the bathroom; at least I didn't see one. Loved the balcony. So nice to sit and relax in the morning and evening. Read entire member review >>
Showing a little wear in the room but not in bad shape. The bed was comfortable and the room was clean. There is a mini fridge, a safe, plenty of closet & drawer space and a flat screen tv (which we barely turned on - just to see our position in the sea). The bathroom has shampoo & a soap dispenser. Bring your own conditioner or your hair will be straw dry (this coming from a girl who has silky/oily hair). Gone are the trays of free sample products. There are still tissues in the bathroom. The desk has a stool and there is a blow dryer & bible in the top drawer. If you are lucky enough to have Sofyan "Sofie" as your room steward, you will be very pleased. Read entire member review >>
Cabin - 8376 Deck 8 Balcony. Typical Carnival cabin that looks tiny when you first walk in and is kingdom by the time you leave. Being right under the Cezanne Resturant was concerning, but really no issues. Only noise we heard was occasionally they would use carts to bring out more plates, cups or fill the drink machines and it would make a rolling sound above us. No other noise and we found this location perfect to run up and quickly grab breakfast, go to Adults pool, or to the elevators which took us down right by the restaurant. I would definitely book this cabin again, or one near it. We purposely choose the port side after seeing pics of ships in Aruba and Curacao, where the ship docks on that side. Allowing us views of each port from our cabin. Read entire member review >>
Really big with a sofa (bed?), king size bed (which I think was two large singles pushed together) and the room as big as say a Premier Inn room with very a generous sized bathroom with walk in shower. The balcony was a decent size with a small table and two chairs, but didn't sit out as the days were short of daylight but good for having a look out/docking. Read entire member review >>
Very clean and roomier than I expected. I'd heard that cruise cabins are so small, and the bathroom IS small, but it was all we needed for the cruise. I was happy with the accommodations. The bed was so comfortable and it was the best sleep I've had in years. Read entire member review >>
The room was large enough for two of us and the distance we had to get to the pools & food was great, we could be in the main swimming area in less than 5 minutes and back if needed. The décor was nice & the room was kept clean. It had plenty of storage space & a refrigerator made it nice to cool drinks. Read entire member review >>
Since we usually book interior cabins, this cabin seemed extra big. I guess the patio door letting in all the light and the extra space on the balcony made it appear to be larger. It also had a couch that folded out into a bed that made it feel roomier. Absolutely loved the location! It was literally a 2 minute walk out to the Lido deck so it was very easy to run back to the room if we forgot anything. Read entire member review >>
I am so glad we went with a balcony room. It was nice to be able to be outside without going to one of the top decks. The room was clean when we arrived and everything was in working order. It was laid out nicely and conveniently. We could hear some hallway noise but that was due to loud people. It was conveniently close to the mid ship elevators. Read entire member review >>
Our balcony room was wonderful! Bigger I would say than Princess and the bed was very comfortable. I was a bit nervous that our room would be very loud as we were directly under the buffet restaurnat and across from the lifts. However we were not bothered by noise at all, you could occasionally hear a food cart being pushed across the floor but this was very muffled and didn't happen late at night, so did not bother us at all.

We got a deal on a balcony cabin so we couldn't pick our own cabin. It was decided until a few weeks before sailing but Carnival gave us a great balcony, very good location. I wish the a/c was colder at night. It was fine during the day but nights a bit too warm. Next time I will bring a fan. Lots of storage and closet space, and plenty of hot water. Steward was fine and prompt. No problem with the cabin. A few with cruisers on both sides of our balcony one was a smoker and the other left balcony light on all night.We love balconies to see sail away and watch the beautiful seas and docking at islands.

Though cabin showing wear, it was kept very clean by our room stewards. Upon request they removed items from mini fridge so that we could put in our water and soda. Beware, the cabin is located below the Lido deck and can be very noisy. The noise never bothered me or hubby. We were able to sleep just fine. The balcony was nice, but we did not use it a lot. Loved socializing with fellow passengers on deck. But it was nice when arriving in a port to go out and see everything. Read entire member review >>
We splurged a bit and got a balcony room. It was nice. I didn't feel cramped. It had plenty of room for our things. The bathroom was a touch small. 1 person could take a shower while the other got ready but definitely couldn't share it beyond that. You could easily hear the people next door and the hallway. The balcony was nice as it added light throughout the day and in the mornings so you knew it was daytime if you were sleeping in. Not sure I would splurge again on the balcony room as we didn't really use our balcony that much. Read entire member review >>
8208 is a very comfortable and spacious cabin, with a small balcony. The TV was a bit temperamental and the wi-fi very unpredictable. Shower had decent pressure and was quick to heat up. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was roomy.
Bathroom seemed well laid out. Shower was big enough and water temperature was very reliable. No bars of soap for shower, only the squirt kind. We knew this ahead of time, so we brought our own bars of soap.
I liked that I could lie on the bed and see out the window as we sailed. Read entire member review >>
We were in room 8261 right behind the elevators. No elevator noise-but occasionally during the day we heard the activities from the lobby. Which if they were playing music I enjoyed. Three closets. We brought extra coat hangers from home and glad we did. Two nice big bathrobes. Nice size balcony and bathroom with plenty of counter space. Safe lock and unlock with the slide of a credit card.

Great balcony, quiet location except for early morning around 6am when the deck chairs above were being moved.... (but it was over quickly) and I was too tired to care. Convenient location to the main action on the Lido deck.... I would book this room again. Read entire member review >>
I've stayed in three different cabins on the Carnival Conquest; all had balconies; the last room I stayed in had a lot of noise above us. That is my only complaint. I love being on the 8th floor, mid ship, but if you don't want to have to deal with the noise from the restaurant above, you may want to do the seventh floor. Read entire member review >>
Great location. Not too far from elevators or laundry room, but just far enough away from the traffic. Quick walk to pools & buffet. Cabins above & below, so no noise problems. You can, however, hear other cabin doors slamming & if your neighbors get loud you will hear them. This is the case with any room, though. Balcony was fine, although it's not very deep for reclining. It has 2 chairs & a small table. Depending on your height, the rail may obstruct your view while sitting. This is an excellent place for just relaxing & reading a book. It is shaded, as there are balconies above. Read entire member review >>
