The cabin turn-around is so quick, that the cleaning staff did not clean out a closet from dirty clothes left behind from the last cruiser. However, our Steward, Putta, promptly cleaned up and apologized. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was like all of our inside cabins before! Perfect for my husband and I. Twin beds that convert to king. Lamp on each side with little cabinet below. I am always so happy that they have a light switch behind the bed (I don't know why it makes me happy it just does). Bed is comfy as always. Ample storage space (4 drawers and 3 closets). Never have any issue finding places to put stuff. I will say on my previous cruises with carnival there was a little shelf in the shower for personal items (shampoo, soap etc.). On this ship in this room there was only a little soap tray and that was it so I struggled to fit everything in there. (Yes I know they provide shampoo and soap but like a lot of people I bring my own). Our room was a bit warm this time, the air was working it just wasn't blowing out much. I wanted to complain but didn't end up making a big fuss about it. Read entire member review >>
Very loud cabin! Lots of strange and unexplained noises. We looked and you are above an electrical room and service area. Would never pick this location again. If you like sleeping this is not the cabin for you. Read entire member review >>
Mali was a wonderful cabin steward. Our room was always clean with fresh ice and fresh towels. This is a quiet room also. We never heard noise from any public area and the occasional hallway noise was minimal. Read entire member review >>
We were on the empress deck, cabin 7300. Our cabin was a bit smaller then we expected, but it was big enough for the two of us. There was plenty of storage. They could maybe add additional A/C outlets to the cabins. If you want to charge your camera and Kindle at the same time, you are out of luck. Read entire member review >>
Hallway and floor were very quiet. Lots of balconies and suites on this floor so that is probably why. VERY tiny room compared to what we were expecting. Pipes under room made loud clanging noises night and day. Not constant but enough to wake you if you were asleep. Too much motion for me in the very front of the ship. Read entire member review >>
7403 is located just off one set of elevators, which is very nice. However, it's a LONG walk down the narrow hall to either of the other two sets of elevators. The dining room assigned for MyTime Dining guests was at the opposite end of the ship. However, we were directly below the rear of the Lido deck, leading to the pizza or into the buffet. We were directly above the Karaoke and Comedy lounges with a short, relatively crowdless walk to the casino. Read entire member review >>
Our inside cabin (7331) was pretty nice for an inside cabin. Although cozy, there was plenty of room for two of us. There was a lot of closet space and lots of shelves in the bathroom to put your cosmetics, etc. My only complaint is that it was too close to the elevators. We kept hearing the elevator chime, and some people were noisy as they waited for the elevators. Read entire member review >>
Interior stateroom as expected. Small area but we learned how to let each other pass the narrow walkways after a couple days. Good use of space for bathroom, storage, bed. Never heard any noise from neighbors except kids running down the hall but that would be any room. Mostly smooth seas so we only felt minimal motion in the room near the end of the trip when tropical storms started developing. Read entire member review >>
