We chose an interior cabin because it was less money than an outside cabin with a window. I went with my neighbor, and he was afraid the interior cabin was going to be too small based on a picture on Carnival's website. He was complaining way too much before we left about the size of the room and that there wasn't a chair or table in there. I told him to stop his beotching, as I was in the Army and slept inside a tank, or on the outside of a tank that was much smaller and much less comfortable. As we entered our cabin for the first time, it was much bigger than it looked in the picture. We had two twin beds on different walls. There was also a chair and a table inside as well. There is a mirror and a curtain to give the illusion of having a window. The window has a shelf with a rail so you can put things on it. The TV is mounted on the wall and there is an additional shelf with blue towels and some magazines on it. You can remove the towels and magazines if you need additional room to put your personal stuff. The bathroom was spacious with a pretty decent sized shower. There are several closets with plenty of room to put your clothes and suitcase. The housekeeping staff is top notch. Our cabin was turned over several times a day with new towels and towel animals.

When we first got it, one of the bed was in a normal position, headboard against wall but the other was against the other wall along its side. My cabin roommate mentioned how she got sea sick in such a layout that we asked Apollo, the room service guy to please change it. He did. The motion of the ship was very obvious to me and I actually swayed with the ship. There is no natural light, but there is a channel on the tv with different natural images we used to brighten up the room. Roomy shower. Banged my elbow a few times while on the toilet.

Great cabin, very comfortable our friends had AC probs but ours was perfect. The beds and pillows are superior to anyplace. Plenty of closet space and everything was great. A few more TV stations would be nice! Read entire member review >>
The room was nice. Bed was comfy. Had a flat screen tv. This is not the kind of room you want to spend your cruise in. If you want that, get a balcony cabin or suite. But to shower, change and sleep and enjoy the sun, its perfect. Read entire member review >>
We booked a room for 3 adults. We got to the room and there was a king bed with a child sized cot. After much ado, we were brought a trundle bed which was less than adequate but better than the cot. Read entire member review >>
Cabin R184 was fine. A little crowded with 4 people init. Had 2 double beds slid together and 2 fold-down beds, which we left down throughout the cruise.Good location (between elevators) Read entire member review >>
We always get interior and as low as we can in the ship. My wife gets sea sick so this exposes us to the least amount of movement. The room was huge for an interior stateroom. It had a king bed and we could walk all around it. It has to be the largest room I have ever gotten on a ship.
It was clean and well maintained. It had adequate closet and drawer space for a 5 day cruise. A 7 day cruise, storage my be a little tight.
The steward was friendly and efficient. The room was always cleaned when we got back from our excursions. Read entire member review >>
m220. Small interior room with king size bed and 2 bunk beds that can be pulled down. No frig. No hairdryer but steward provided one when requested. Nice hot shower. Good location. Read entire member review >>
Always in top notch shape in cleanliness. Plenty of closet space. No smells or noise in the hallways. We were on the Empress Deck. We were first booked on the Rivera, but about 3 weeks before the cruise we were offered the upgrade to the Empress for a very nominal fee. Read entire member review >>
Veranda Deck-Inside. Nice cabin, large closets, adequate bathroom. Great location, very convenient to Lido deck, elevators etc. Very little hall traffic. Only down side is height from the water line. We had very rough seas, being high up made the pitching and rolling more pronounced. Read entire member review >>
R215 inside cabin. Down in the bowels, but quiet, clean, sleeps four, adequate closet and shelf space. Could use more outlets (only one) for charging phones, etc. Really hot shower water, well lit, clean, and considering the age of the ship, really nice bathroom. One of the best I've seen on a ship. Overall I thought it was one of the nicer rooms I've had on a ship. Read entire member review >>
U237 - our mom's cabin was horrible. It was as far back as you can get next to the steward closet. They had a lot of noise from the closet area as stewards grabbed things etc. and tons of vibration from being at the back of the ship. It was always noisy and a lot of rockin when we were back there.
R15 - our cabin was in a great location for movement. We had a slight rolling during rough seas and nothing that made us feel sick. It was quiet and we were just one floor up from where the gangplank was to get off in Cozumel and Jamaica. It is on the opposite end of the ship as the food so you can get a little exercise as you head for that late night ice cream cone. Read entire member review >>
