This was a three person room as we had our 14 year old granddaughter with us. Typical balcony room, comfortable, room stewards were always on top of cleaning and service. We were short one towel and bathrobe and she remedied that very promptly. Proximity to the spa was very nice. Room was quiet although the hall door to the deck, three rooms down, slammed hard when it closed. The miniature bottles of spa amenities were nice but not nearly enough to last he week for two, much less three. The proximity to the spa allowed me to use their locker room to shower and avoid the close quarters in our room. Read entire member review >>
Excellent storage space, extremely comfortable bed, fantastic location (two feet from spa, and opposite end of WaterWorks, so very, very quiet), no one could "look down" on us from above deck, like some other spa cabins. If I had to pick my cabins, I would've picked this one. Now that I'm spoiled don't know if I could ever have another. Well, maybe an aft balcony... Read entire member review >>
The Room on this vessel was not any bigger than any of the other balcony rooms. The only thing was the unlimited spa access because of the stateroom. If the Spa is not a Must Have, I would not spend the extra cost for this room verses a regular balcony room. Unless it is a Cheap upgrade or a free upgrade (as it was for us). We had them take the two twin bed a make a Queen size (not a King Size) for us. The bed was very firm. but, Comfortable. I would book this room again. Read entire member review >>
Average size balcony cabin. Heard about the potential for noise from the tradmills on the deck above, but heard NOTHING. Very quiet. Great location for kids -- Near the buffet, Camp Carnival, pool, Serenity (adult only area), and water slide! Read entire member review >>
We enjoyed cabin,12204. The door to the balcony opened and closed very quietly as did the neighboring rooms on either side. The mattress created an issue the first night but with the assistance of Raymund, the Senior Assistant for housekeeping, our issue was handled by Sunday evening. Read entire member review >>
Our SPA Cabin was nice. It was on the SPA deck next to the SPA of course. It was very quiet. We had plenty of closet space, some with shelves. We were able to store all of our luggage under the bed, that was a plus. The balcony was the right size for us and very refreshing. I will always choose this type of cabin.

Spa room had really tacky paintings. The paintings were in bright colors and looked like children painted them. I think a more tranquil feeling should be portrayed in the Spa Balcony rooms. The closets had ample space. The bed had plenty of room under it for the luggage to be stored out of the way. The room was spacious and the bathroom was a nice size. The Sewage odor that came out through the ventilation in the room did put a damper on our time in the room. The balcony was nice but could have used a little roof or coverage as the people on the Serenity deck can look right down into your balcony and they are close enough you can talk to the people looking over the railing.

Carnival Dream Cabin 12216--I would not recommend this cabin. Deck 12 cabins have no privacy on the balcony (there is no "roof" and those above on Deck 14 can look down in to your balcony and chat if they are so inclined. This particular cabin also has an outside wall that is against the stairs to the waterslide, which can be noisy if you spend any time in the cabin during the times the slide is open. Its location near the Lido also means that on nights where there is music (laser light show or deck party) you will hear the sounds from the Lido late into the night.
I found there to be a lot of movement in this cabin but not the usual rocking that I have experienced in other forward cabins, the sound and feel were more "jarring" like we "hit" something in the water.
Finally, the dreaded "sewer smell" is very much noticeable in this room. Read entire member review >>
Loved the cabin....nice upscale decor in room and hallway. Very quiet with only 10 cabins on the floor. Only issue...no cover from the people on the adult serenity above you. Read entire member review >>
