The ship was old, carpeting in my cabin was worn, the toilet seat was losing paint and worn, the curtains were not properly hung and difficult to open and close and my window was filthy and rusted. The bed and the pillows were comfortable, there were three closets and they were a good size. The bathroom was a good size. The room did not come with a hair dryer, but upon request, Patrick promptly delivered one to my room. Read entire member review >>
First time cruiser. Small cabin but surprisingly enough space for all our clothes. (more than enough). Large window in the room (not two portholes) was a nice surprise. Generally quiet room even though it's on the main deck. Didn't experience sea sickness. King bed. Adequate shower, and bath too. Clean. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was efficient and comfortable. The bed was awesome. There was a little dust along the headboard and desk that I ended up cleaning myself. Nothing else was gross so that was a relief. The shower had good water pressure too. Note: I had no blow dryer in the room but packed one just in case. I guess you have to ask for one. Our steward was super smiley and friendly but not around too much. We didn't feel like we really met him. Read entire member review >>
Slept 3 had a window, and was always neat and clean. And the shower was a little bigger than I've seen, however not a lot of room for bathroom items. Yet all went ok. It had a full window not a port hole, or the 2 little port hole Windows that our friends had! Read entire member review >>
Ocean view rooms were spacious, especially for this ship being so old. Bathrooms were large as well. Our room (U161) had 1 extra bunk, but we never actually used it as our 3 year old slept in our bed. The safety rail was quite loose with a couple of stripped screws. I easily could have fallen through the railing (5’3” small frame) and my head would have been caught. You can feel movement in the ship when sailing, so choose your room wisely if you get sea sick.

Very clean and a lot more room than I thought. The bed was very comfortable and the air condition worked according to my preference. The window view was wonderful, we could see other cruise ships traveling close by in the night. Excellent Cabin. Joseph our attendant was like part of the family. He was very kind and very attentive. Joseph was a true people person. Read entire member review >>
The cabins are older, but well appointed.
There's 2 hanging closets, one full length shelf closet plus a set of shallow drawers (6 I think).
Beds can be either twin or King Size (2 twins pushed together). REMEMBER TO CHOSE YOUR CONFIGURATION ON THE CARNIVAL SITE PRIOR TO SAILING.
The bathroom is a simple shower, sink and WC configuration with nowhere to put stow toiletries. We kept ours in a bag on the floor.
The room was kept spotless by our steward Eduardo for the duration of the cruise.
The picture window was nice, but as I've read in other reviews it could do with an exterior clean! Read entire member review >>
Cabin u224 gets every possible sound and vibration from the rope mechanisms preparing to dock and when docking. They fire these up about 6AM on port days and they don't shut up until the ship is tight to the pier! LOL Of course U224 is also above the thrusters.... I don't see how any room at the back of this ship can not hear this noise. Clay Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was fine. I think it's pretty standard,. We didn't have issues with noise. PLenty of clets space, several drawers in the night stand, each bed has an overhead light, including the pullout. The bathroom was a decent size and pretty standard. Ther eis one outlet in the bathrrom and one in the cabin. Bring a power strip for charging electronics. The lighting in the rooms are not very good (overhead flourescent). Read entire member review >>
Good location on the ship. Pretty much in the middle of the ship. Didn't feel any motion, and I get motion sickness very easily. Bathroom normal cruise bathroom size. Bathroom had liquid soap and shampoo in the shower and the amenities basket had 3 travel tubes of toothpaste, granola bar, and several other useful items. Plenty of towels during the cruise.

We were in M164 and M168. Both cabins were fine. With the third bunk put down you had to bend over or climb over one bed to get to the second one. Otherwise fairly spacious for a ship.
Very comfortable beds. Read entire member review >>
--bring extra hangers if you hang your clothes--some are provided but not enough for 2 adults
--Fernando was the best steward ever! I was sea sick 1 night and we didn't get a towel animal so the next day when we came back from lunch there was a towel animal on our bed (usually happens in the evening). When I saw him in the hallway he asked how I was and made sure I saw the animal--he was very sweet!!! Read entire member review >>
U128 was a great cabin with plenty of space. The only problem I found was just one chair. One of us had to sit on the bed to watch TV. I am use to a balcony cabin with a sofa. Bathroom was large enough and there was plenty of storage space. Read entire member review >>
We were on main deck in the aft (rear) of the boat.Cabin was smalll with two closets and a dresser drawers. We had plenty of room to walk around but it was impossible after turn down service because the pullman bed took up some walking room, especally if you slept next to the window. Bathroom samll and had two halogen bulbs for lights. the shower was good but the sinks never put out cold water. When the boat slowed to port the bilge pumps rattled along the heavy vibration form the boat made it impossible to sleep on port days. Plus your on a cruise your not in your room long. so the size of the room doesnt matter to me. Read entire member review >>
We were on main deck, outside room, starboard side. Room was the smallest cruise ship room we've had. The room had two twins pushed together and a pull down single bed. Bath was ok, but very little counter/storage space. I know this is a cruise ship and space is a premium but I'm comparing to other ships I've been on. Plenty of hanging space for clothes, very few drawers. No fridge in the room, there was a safe, and a hair dryer was found in the closet. Carnival said no hair dryers provided. I'm not picky, but the room was dusty. If it bothered me too much I could have notified my steward and he would have taken care of it right away, but I chose not to. It served its purpose, comfortable beds, with good a/c, clean bathroom, everything in working order. Read entire member review >>
Room was surprisingly roomy. My husband and I are rather large people, and our 18 year old son was with us. We were comfortable in our room; of course, we didn't spend a lot of time there. Beds were super comfy. I kept hearing a clicking noise in the hall way, like a coin in a dryer. Not sure if dryer, or if something just clanking, but it definitely came from hallway. Window was really dirty and crusty. Bathroom was roomy, and steward kept it clean. Read entire member review >>
