Stateroom was sufficient. I had oceanview on main deck 5. Very little room to walk around. Two beds pushed together and up against the wall. Then, upper pullman was down and a pull-out underneath.
Room attendant was excellent. He even knew our names. He did everything to ensure we had plenty of towels and blankets. Kids loved the towel animal each night.
I had no issues with smells as some have mentioned in other reviews. Also, a little difficult in getting temperature right in room. Either too cold or too stuffy. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was small for all 4 of us but expected that. We spent very little time there except to change clothes, shower or sleep. Gusti did a great job keeping our messy place clean for us... Read entire member review >>
Very basic room. Window was large but dirty from the time we departed. Huge closets. Toilets dont flush very well. (Bring air freshener! Thank me later) the king bed was two twin size stone slabs pushed together. We did not sleep well. Infinite hot water in the shower which was very nice. Room was right outside elevators, as requested. Great location on ship. Was not overly noisy. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was small (expected) but roomy at the same time. Really you aren't spending a lot of time in there anyways. Close to the Aft elevators. Closet space was good. Bathroom was as expected. It was fun to look out into the ocean while cruising. We got to see a sea turtle and lots of birds. Read entire member review >>
Our ocean view cabin was roomy, the layout was excellent for three of us, the single bed folded out of a wall unit four feet off the ground,(with a ladder) and the king size bed was very comfortable with high quality linens and comforter. The bathroom was a great layout with a generous sink and plenty of towel racks! The shower was spacious and drained well (other reviews have complained about that) The room was very quiet on the seventh floor, even though the galley was on the floor above us, never heard a sound! Conveniently located right next to the stairs and elevators, one floor up to the dining room! On the back quarter of the ship! Read entire member review >>
Cabin was near one of the stair towers. We were concerned that it might be noisy but never found it so.Room itself was generous in size and had plenty of room (and a window). Room was in good condition.Bathrrom showed it's age. Layout was akward and calking in shower are was not in good shape. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 267 - Our cabin size was more than adequate. We had an outside oceanview room on deck 5 at the very back of the boat. The view was wonderful and the cabin steward kept the room immaculate at all times. There is no fridge or couch. Bed very comfy, linens were immaculate. Plenty of closet space. Great shower!

Our cabin was U61 (Upper deck, ocean view, midship/forward was very conveniently located (near the midship elevators). Our cabin was smaller than I expected, not room for much more than the bed and one chair - I have previously been in cabins with a small table and/or a sofa. Storage space was adequate though not plentiful. Reading lights and an outlet right next to the bed came in handy for using my Kindle. The bed was very comfortable with the updated duvets and luxury linens. The small bathroom had almost no storage. but everything was in working order. Once I figured out the shower, I had plenty of hot water and the spray was sufficient; there was an electrical outlet in the bathroom also Read entire member review >>
Unremarkable but sufficient little room; it was frustrating that the window had kind of a briney coating on it that made it hard to see out of. Also, the tv was broken (all the channels were grainy). But overall it was fine. Read entire member review >>
Small for the category. No sitting area other than the bed and 1 chair. Small bathroom with minimal space around the sink for makeup, etc. Right at the elevators, but noise was not a problem Read entire member review >>
The room was in a great location and was fairly quiet. It is smaller than an American hotel room and the bathroom is minimal, but it was completely adequate for our needs. We were surprised that there was no hair dryer in the room as we'd read previous reviews stating that they are there. We wound up sharing one hair dryer between two rooms, having to walk it down the hall for a trade-off a couple of times each day. Read entire member review >>
Carnival Ecstasy U160 Upper Deck. Close to elevator, can hear elevator chime (not too loud). Directly across hall from crew door, in and out constantly, very noisy especially at night. Electrical outlet in room went out as well as our neighbor's (U158) the last evening. Reported but never fixed. Windows on the ship stay covered with condensation, need cleaning outside. Linens nice. Programable safe. Sail and Sign card is now room key also. Has one upper bunk, would rather have the few inches of extra space since we didn't have third person. Temperature controlled from ceiling, can go from cooler to no air blowing at all. Found out this trip, no heat on the ship period. Had to take hot shower and get in bed to warm up.
