Porthole Cabins

24 Reviews
Interior stateroom with a porthole and 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.

Our cabins were on Deck 5 Rivera. We were in R3 and the kids were in R5. We were low on the ship and at the very front. We had 2 porthole windows which were sufficient. The kids room did smell like cigarette smoke but ours had a nice perfumed smell to it. Rooms were large and bathrooms were sufficient. When we booked we were told that the kids 15 and 18 could not share a cabin. So we booked 1 adult with 1 child in each cabin. This actually saved us $250 when my hubby bought the alcohol card. Apparently any person 21 or older in a cabin must purchase the card if the one does. Since I rarely drink, this saved us money as my hubby was booked sharing a room with our son who was only 18. We remedied that by getting extra key cards to each cabin so that we could switch for the adults to be together and kids to be together. Being at the front of the boat, we got very little hallway traffic which was nice. But, we were low and could hear the noise of the motors when docking at ports. These were pretty loud. Also, the last evening of the cruise was pretty rough and we could hear the waves hitting the sides of the boat. I did not feel that the motion was worse than any other place on the ship. None of our family got motion sickness and another family we traveled with who were 2 floors above and in the center of the boat did have motion sickness the last night.

The steward attending the cabin was great, however our room smelled STRONGLY of smoke the last couple of days. I'm not sure if this was on the sheets, towels, etc... or if somebody smoked in our room while we were out. My wife and I both suffered migraines as a result of this (due to our sensitivity to cigarette smoke).

U18
Too Short Paddy41

U 18: cabin has no mini fridge and no couch but has a wide window ledge where the portholes are and was very comfortable. Smell of smoke sometimes in the room but mostly in the hallway. If allegic to cigarette smoke, don't book these forward rooms. We were told there is a vent coming in from a public smoking area so nothing can be done about it.

For the price, this cabin was a steal. The accommodations were spacious enough for two people without having it feel cramped. The three closets provided ample space. While space in the bathroom is at a minimum, bringing along hanging shoe organizers, travel organizers, will greatly help keep things organized. Port holes were a nice size, and the window was so recessed that we kept the towel animals we had collected throughout the week there. ^_^

U27
We had 2 PT cabins, U27 and R18. Good value BUT you will here the thrusters when entering a port. You might also hear this noise in any cabin class depending on location. Best to get a PT further away from the stern if possible.R deck (4th) was not a problem for our kids although it involves more stairs. We enjoyed being on Upper(6th) deck and almost always used the stairs.

U27
U27 was too noisy when the seas are ruff. You can hear the boat clang every time the boat rises and falls. Also there is an extremely bad cigarette smell. The smell actually made me sick.

Riviera #8-I like the Riviera cabins because when you get back from port, you only have to walk up the stairs and there you are. I enjoy the light from the portholes-great price for a "round" ocean view. Three closets, two for hang up, one with shelves. Dresser with 4 good size drawers. One chair(wish it had two) but there is an ottoman seat with the desk area. Bathroom was a good size, shower had great water pressure, and temperature.

Beds and Pillows were Very Comfortable! Closest Space was just enough! Loved the Safe Box inside our Room! Bathrooms had more room than I expected!

M18
M18 was good -- spacious with two portholes and a sort of "window seat" that I probably wasn't supposed to sit in. It's pretty far forward, which means less noise in the hallways. You do get some anchor/engine noise, but I didn't mind.

U 16
Our cabin was U-16, a PT (PortHole) cabin. This was our second time in this very cabin. I love the PT cabins as you get ocean view for the price of an Interior. The good things about these cabins are that there is not much hallway noise as there is not much traffic there. You have a large shelf area to "Corrale" your towel animals, and you are near the shows, shopping, and main dining rooms. The bad things are; Your Wife is close to the shopping! You are a long way from the Lido Deck, and when they drop the anchor or use the bow thrusters it is LOUD! Also on this trip this cabin smelled of cigarette smoke, where as it didn't back in Jan.

Had an Interior Porthole Cabin on deck #6. Very nice cabin. Plenty of room for two people. Loved the portholes and the room in front of them. Only drawbacks to this cabin is the noise from the bow thrusters when docking.

M14
Main level-cabin 14. Two porthole windows, deep set enough that 6'2" hubby could sit in the area. Bed, was the best! Bathroom adequate, but personally I hate the toilet seat. Had plenty of closet space, and drawer space. Love the flat screen TV!

M30 Loved the view and the fact that this is the very first PT cabin right next to the regular window cabins. Great view, loved the window seat area. Cabin very clean and furnished with everything we needed, including bathrobes. Also close to deck 3 where you exit for port stops and debarkation.

We had a porthole room on this cruise. It was a very quiet room most of the time except that we were on the Empress deck and that is where the employee lounge is located so we heard doors slamming from time to time. Other than that, it was great.
