Oceanview stateroom with twin beds that convert to a king. Every Carnival guest is assured of spacious, comfortable accommodations. All staterooms have carpeting, ample drawer and closet space, private facilities (shower, basin and toilet), telephone and color television showing first-run films. Our SuperLiners all feature staterooms above ocean level for a more comfortable cruise.
Cabin was clean, but no way to see how much you're spending on board via the TV even though they say that's available. I realize AC power is limited on board, but a single outlet in the whole cabin made if difficult to get everything charged up for being off the ship during the day. Lightening system isn't great, why they still use florescent lights now a days is extremely strange. Overall thought he cabin was clean and in good shape. Read entire member review >>
docking motors rattle you out of bed. complained to guest services about noise, they are well aware of the noise complaints from these rooms as we are not the first or last to question the room noise. Read entire member review >>
It was quaint but it got the job done. I enjoyed how somehow an image of the water was displayed on the interior wall in the late afternoon because of the reflection of the light off of the ocean though the window. It was just by chance and science but it was wonderful to me. Our steward was amazing though. My husband brought a 6 pack of Mt. Dew and the steward kept him an ice bucket in there everyday for him. We left a little more tip daily for that. We liked the towel animals and chocolates that they left on the pillow in 2014. Read entire member review >>
For the 2 of us there was enough space. The bathroom is so small with no storage! Even with a hanging toiletry bag shampoo and other bottles had to go on the floor. The only issue was some mildew in the shower and after the first day the shower would flood the whole bathroom when showering. Bed was comfortable and they kept the room very tidy, Read entire member review >>
We were pleasantly surprised with our cabin - as we thought we would just have a port hole type window, but we had a very large window in our room. The service done on our cabin everyday was outstanding. Everytime we left our room it seemed like it was cleaned. We were told by other cruisers who have cruised on other Carnival ships that these staterooms were very small … but we were very satisfied with our cabin! We were on the 4th deck of the ship … although the Letters & Numbered floors were a little confusing … the elevators also were not the best. We took the stairs most of the time to balance out all of the delicious food we were eating! Read entire member review >>
We had an ocean view room which had a nice sized window. The room was clean and more spacious than we had expected! The beds and pillows were comfortable as was the bedding. Unfortunately, the walls are very thin, and our neighbors were VERY loud, at times it sounded like they were in the room with us! That being said, I would assume that most ships have this issue, and we were just unfortunate in having inconsiderate neighbors. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was an average size and good for us. I mean- what are cabins on a cruise for??? SLEEPING lol. So though comfortable and all, if you plan on spending a lot of time in your cabin, I would suggest a suite or balcony. Read entire member review >>
Poor water quality - water is dirty - non-potable.
Need blanket for bed
TV is terrible - more movie choices. Show sports on room TV same as bars are showing. Improve sound quality. Improve Video quality. Improve the screen showing ship position, speed, etc. Read entire member review >>
Cabin M151 - Deck 5: Decent closet space but only 4 small drawers (none in the nightstands). Awkward arrangement when the bunk is pulled down to accommodate a 3rd person. Terrible water pressure in the shower - barely trickled out. Read entire member review >>
We had two rooms, U127 (interior) and U121 (exterior with window), for five people. Three kids got the interior room and Mom and Dad got the king bed in the exterior. Both rooms were very clean, if a little spartan. And cleaned each day and straightened each night (new towels, turn-down service)
In each room, closets were roomy and there was enough room to walk around the bed. There are two small chests of drawers -- one in one closet, the other as part of the desk/dressing table. We stowed the luggage under the beds to get it out of the way. Bed quality was actually quite good -- nice firm mattress. There's a desk/dressing table with a stool, another desk-type chair, and a very small side table, but that's it for furniture. There's large dressing mirror in the bedroom and another in the bathroom. The kid's room had two full-size twin beds in a L shape, and the third bed on the other wall making it into an upside down U shape. I'm not sure if we had the "rollaway" or the "trundle", but it was smaller, closer to the floor, but our 7-year-old didn't mind. I would think it would be tough to cram three adults into the space.
The bathroom had a toilet and shower stall. There was a fair amount of integrated shelf space in the bathroom along with a shampoo and shower gel dispenser. There was one outlet in the bathroom which worked intermittently. We brought our own hair dryer and plugged it into the power strip we also brought. There's no hair dryer provided.
We were not too far from the guest "launderette" which had four washers and four dryers. Each load was $3 to wash, $3 to dry (bring lotsa quarters) and then they sold detergent/softener from another machine. There were also ironing boards/irons available here. I did not notice any long wait for a washer. There are at least two, maybe three, launderettes on board.
Hallways were busy most of the day, but there's a lot of closet space, bathroom between bed and door/hallway, so outside noise was never a real problem. On one occasion, I did hear a number of young people running up and down the hallway and laughing around midnight, but it quieted quickly. If you're expecting a library, don't.
Generally, linens were nice (very clean) and they provide two beach towels per room as well as pool towels. You can take the towels off the ship, but you have to bring them back or they charge you $22. We brought our own beach towels, but I don't think they came out of the bag. Atlantis also provides pool towels, by the way. Read entire member review >>
R220 - lowest deck, cheapest oceanview category. Aft, starboard. The cabin was quiet, nice sized, with a nice sized bathroom. A bit far away from everything so if you have trouble walking this is not a good choice of cabin. Good closet and drawer space. No hairdryer or mini fridge. The window is nice. The lighting is good.

Near the elevators and a strait shot directly into the lido buffet. Only bad thing was that we paid for the ocean view and our window was extremely dirty--so dirty in fact that we couldn't take pictures from it. Read entire member review >>
M185 -- tiny but adequate. Reasonable closet space - tiny bathroom. Nice big window with unobstructed view. Easy access to elevator to Lido, casino and dining room. But debarkation is all the way forward, so it's a hike to get off the ship. Read entire member review >>
Cabin R40 on the Carnival Fascination is great. It is not adjoined to another cabin (i.e., there is no internal door that connects the cabin to the cabin next to it) so that reduces the noise you might hear from the next cabin. The cabin is on the Riviera (bottom) deck and there was little noise from above or below. Read entire member review >>
