We were asked how many times a day that we would like our cabin serviced, etc. We only needed night service. We asked for hair dryer and two blankets for our cabin. The steward immediately brought those items to us. Chantal asked daily/many times if we needed anything. He was always kind and considerate. Read entire member review >>
We had an oceanview cabin on deck 6 which worked for us. It had a window and 2 twin or 1 king bed. It was what we expected and was kept clean the entire time. The beds are super comfy with excellent pillows and comforters! Remember there is just one outlet plug 2 prong. We had plenty of storage in our 3 closets and a safe. The air worked 100% I love it cool and it was perfect. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was a bit disappointing. I chose the option where you let Carnival select the room layout, and I wouldn't do that again. Our son's bed was raised and pulled out of the wall. (The cabin crew opened and secured it, and it stayed open throughout the cruise.) It was not possible to walk around to the far side while upright. You had to contort yourself. I wouldn't do that again. Read entire member review >>
Very comfortable bed and nice shower. Liked the robe so much I purchased one. The windows were in need of serious cleaning. Room was cleaned twice a day and always fresh towels. Yul was our steward and he was always friendly. We gave him a large well deserved tip for his efforts. Our room was in the back of the ship and very peaceful. Read entire member review >>
Our stateroom was an ocean view (there are no balcony rooms on this ship) was quite adequate, clean and pleasant. The onboard food was generally very good and served by attentive dining room staff. Read entire member review >>
Clean & marginally functional... "One" operational power outlet in the entire Stateroom. Adequate closet space...but not a single hook in the Bath or Stateroom. No mini-frig... not even an ice bucket! Great flat screen TV w/ a channel guide you can't read. Read entire member review >>
Not a bad room portside on deck 4. Cold AC and it has a fold up bunk bed but still has 2 twins to make a king bed. It is also near the rear elevators . Straight shot up to the Jubilee dining and Lido deck dining.Cons there is a crew door across cabin door so you hear a lot of laundry carts or other things banging in out of that door, Also some kind of banging noise outside window which sounds like paint being chipped even at sea. Also the last sea night you can hear a lot of banging underneath cabin which is deck 3. I imagine it was the luggage being collected. Read entire member review >>
This is the first time we have had an ocean view rather than balcony room. The room was small as expected, but overall it was fine. There were only 2 or us in the room. There were bunks put up that would have made the room unbelievably crowded. Read entire member review >>
our cabin had a view. It had a night stand on one of the King bed then the desk was used for the other one.It had 2 and a half closets. Also had a few drawers to put stuff in. We got everything unpacked and put away.
The shower is a four foot shower. So we had plenty of room in shower.it is just enough room for one person at the time to talk around bed. But no problem there either. You do not have time to stay in room.
The hallway was not noisy most of the time. Mostly quiet. Read entire member review >>
R208 was a room with Window that we enjoyed especially that first morning watching the Sunrise from our Bed.
Small bathroom but we were prepared, clean neat our room steward did a great job. Extra hangers helped as well as the shoe organizer that we hung over the bathroom door to keep all the sun screen, medicine and make up bottles. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was across from a utility entrance for the staff. On our first night, we woke up to the door slamming steadily. When we complained the next day, they sent someone down to put a stop on the door. Read entire member review >>
Cabin M194 has a funny smell that I assume comes from the kitchen. I only noticed it all meal times. It smells a bit like fryer grease. The port-side window is also caked with salt. Read entire member review >>
Loved seeing dolphins and sea turtle outside our window! Cabin was roomy compared to our room on Royal Caribbean Monarch of the seas. This specific room was noisy from below with metal clanking throughout the trip and water running which wasn't from showers. Overall I would travel in an identical room but not this specific one.

We are a family of 6 and had two ocean view rooms on the Riviera deck, R212 and R216. Great aft location. Jason our cabin steward was fantastic. Rooms were always very clean and he was fast to respond to any question or request. One room was set up with the 2 twin beds and one pull down bunk which was perfect for 3 teenagers. The other room we had set up with the queen size bed and the pull down bunk for the 9 year old. We did find that turning the head of the bed so it was coming from the window gave us a lot more space. We left the bunk down the entire cruise. Plenty of closet space! Read entire member review >>
