We were on the Riviera Deck Ocean View, which is the lowest deck I have ever cruised on. As a past cruiser I was given the option for a low cost upgrade to the Empress Deck but my fellow cruisers didn't want to. I didn't have a problem with the Riviera Deck. The bathroom on the Ecstasy is smaller than on other Carnival ships I have cruised on but the room itself was just fine. Spotlessly clean all the time. Whenever I needed ice, it was quickly delivered with a phone request. Our cabin steward was extremely nice. We lacked for nothing at any time. Bed linens are still changed daily which you don't find in most hotels these days for extended stays unless you request it. Room service was quick and efficient. I had read some reviews from people who found their cabins less than perfect; keep in mind this is not the Embassy Suites, but your daily price for room, 24 hour dining and entertainment is incomparable. The bed and pillows were extremely comfortable! Read entire member review >>
Cabin was the same as all other similar cabins but we were able to really cool it down at night for great sleeping. You are now given a choice of having your cabin serviced in the morning, the afternoon, or both. We choose morings and having only one a day attention was fine with us. Read entire member review >>
Situated in a block of similar cabins with Murphy Beds, it is not uncommon to see families of 4 or 5 occupy these cabins. Lucky for us, our neighbors (families on each side with young kids) were not noisy. Be careful with hitting your head on the protruding Murphy Bed unit when getting in/out of the regular bed.

Room was nice and spacious. Bathroom and shower were a lot larger than what I expected, especially the shower. The bathrobes were a nice added touch! Will never again use an interior room after having an ocean view and that of the sunrises and sunsets! Read entire member review >>
Cabin U119: toilet stained, bathroom floor soft, spongy, broken. Couldn't close a/c vent - cold (finally repaired, 2nd day). Room steward poor attitude -- didn't want to do things the way we wanted -- bed arrangement, remove duvets, provide blankets, etc. Potable water bad chemical taste. People across hall played with very noisy young child in hallway until they were finally convinced they were bothering their neighbors. Excellent room location for our activities.

The cabin was fine as space wise is concern. The hallway and neighbors were quiet. We did hear a banging noise, but it was coming from outside of the ship. We almost had a stink sewage smell coming through the air vent on the last day of the cruise. Read entire member review >>
Smell of urine in the bathroom, but it is a phantom smell in that when the bathroom is cleaned, the smell goes away, but it comes back in about 20 minutes. I searched and looked for the source, but there must be a ghost with bladder problems in there, because there was no visible source for it.
It is not overwhelming and while not pleasant, it is not the end of the world. Read entire member review >>
Main Deck Cabin starboard- outside with twins - converted to king and one pullman bed. Pullman bunk is over feet of "king" bed. When pullman is down the person on the one side of the king has to duck under it to get around it - not really a big deal - probably could rearrange room to avoid this. Room was quiet - no noise from above or below not a lot of traffic in hall and even in winds not a lot of rocking motion. We think we heard the chairs scraping from the balcony diagonally above us one morning - but not a big deal. Would book same room again. Read entire member review >>
M176 was a great OV cabin. The only thing I would have changed was the arrangement in the bathroom. Usually the toilet is right next to the shower so you can easily prop your foot on the toilet to shave your legs. But in this cabin the pedistal sink is next to the shower with the toilet on the far side of the room.
Nice flat screen TV's. Read entire member review >>
