I looked for a review for this room before we left, so I am happy to provide one for you. I was surprised at the small size of the room. It seems most rooms are long and narrow, but this one is smaller. As I said before, we didn't spend much time there anyway, so it turned out to be just fine. There were 2 beds as one - comfortable pillows and bedding. There is no sofa - just one chair by a desk opening. The rest of the room has features like any other - 2 hanging closets (bring hangers as they provide some but not enough for me) and one closet that has 3 shelves. There is plenty of room for shoes. There are 3 or 4 small drawers by the desk for small clothing items. Your empty luggage will easily fit under the beds. The bathroom is small - shower is small -- but they are the same as the other regular rooms. The balcony is called an extended balcony. It does feel larger than the balcony on the side of the ship. In 7447, you are next to an 'aft wrap around balcony' - which gives you a great wide view but also a good view to the right side of the ship. There is not a strong breeze on the balcony, but I was always comfortable (except when the sun was shining hot). Because you see only what is on one side of the ship from a regular balcony, I really like the openness of the aft balcony and will do that again. I will likely try for the room with the wrap around balcony because their stateroom is much larger!

The Food? Great! sanapier1954
Our room was nothing special but clean and functional. As mentioned, the connecting balconies with our friends was fantastic. The many bars and public areas were very tasteful, as opposed to the old Joe Farcas loud designs that we have heard about from other friends who cruised older Carnival ships. Our cabin was always meticulously cleaned by our cabin attendant and she was always unobtrusive.

We always try to get the aft balcony because they are oversized. Nice option when the decks are crowded and you want to just get away from the noise for a while.

Carnival Freedom mrscarnival
7444 aft extended balcony - standard balcony room size, but the extended balcony was nice. The view from the aft was excellent. We really enjoyed our morning coffee on the balcony. Having ESPN as a standard station would be a nice feature. Also showing Thursday night NFL football on the big screen television on the lido deck would have been nice. Instead they had it on in the smoke filled sports bar.

Fantastic wrap around deck! If you can book 6483- Premium Vista Balcony - DO IT! Made the entire trip just luxurious! Great lay-out of room. Bathroom still small, but plenty of closet space.

We had cabin 8455 which was an aft extended wrap. Nothing like what people have written. there is NO way for people to see your balcony from the Lido deck, the view from the balcony was great. Loved being able to watch things from the aft veiw and a side view. Room was small and the bed lumpy, the steward was great. Very intentive, but couldn't fix the bed. Ample closet space. I would bring a power strip and plug the frin in to it. Came in handy when you wanted to charge the cameras and the steward didnt know. The safe had to be unlocked once but otherwise no issues. I would also suggest getting aft dining in the Chic resturant, we had forward LOL
