Balcony (8A)
Decks: Deck 6
Floor 10, first room on the right side. It was great, except for the weight room....above you....with people working out...a lot. Bea ready to hear quite a bit of rumble when trying to sleep and the weight/work out room right above you. It was quite loud. Otherwise, it was great. The door to the outside was not loud, but you could hear it when people would visit the outside deck 10 area.

This is a normal 8a balcony but it is above the piano bar so expect muted noise for below till after midnight.

Worked for our needs. We asked that the pullman bed remain down, and the couch remain converted to a bed, for ease of children's naps. Plenty of closet and under the bed storage space. Balcony is small compared to some other lines, but it met our needs. Missed the bathtub we had on Disney, but we knew we'd be without it (bathtubs are rare in a balcony cabin). The detachable handheld shower head made it easy to simulate a "bathtub" for our youngest. Excursions: Relax on The Beach Package (Roatan) - easy and lovely, a beautiful day at the beach, no complaints! Salsa/Salsa & Margaritas (Cozumel) - easy and fun - the cooking/mixing portions were enjoyable, and had non-alcoholic options for children and non-drinkers.

Nice cabin

We felt cheated bruce925

The room was decent, nothing really special. The cabin steward earned his tip as he kept my ice bucket filled! Thanks to him. However, that people upstairs seemed to be moving chairs around all night long and that kept waking me up. It was just a room up there.

Our balcony room was spacious , clean, comfortable and had ample storage. The bath seemed larger than usual and the shower much roomier than most.

Cabin location was awesome! On Lido so close to everything! But not close to any elevator or noise making area! Will def do a Lido cabin again!

The cabin was great but you could kind of hear the nightclub in the evenings. We were one deck on top of it. It didn't bother me but I could see how maybe a light sleeper would hear it.

Cabin 6226 (Balcony) Was a port side cabin, with a spacious Balcony. We were pretty far forward. Very quiet. Occasionally could hear entertainment coming from the main lobby. Loads of storage space, drawers under the pull out couch.

7208 - 8A balcony room. Motion more noticable than mid-ship (which we rather enjoyed) but bow thrusters really shake the cabin when docking the ship. Great access to 7 forward for late night star-gazing as you're right under the bridge with no lights to spoil the view.

Nice location - deck 10 - high on ship; starboard side.

We booked a balcony on the 6th deck port towards the back of the ship. Our cabin steward, Houston, was outstanding...the best we have had in 16 cruises. Remember, you now have to ask for ice. The room was great and we enjoyed it very much. Houston was on the ball with taking care of us and our needs. He seemed to almost always be working our section of the hallway and always greeted us by name and engaged us in conversation. Be careful of the noise from deck 5 in the late evening. Where we were located there was some noise from the comedy club area and the bar/music just forward of the club. It never kept us up as it was quiet when we went to bed at from 11 to 1. Deck 7 seems to work better since you have a deck of rooms above and below you.

Loved being on Lido deck...where the pizza lives. The cabin was very comfortable with ample storage. Bed was perfect. Balcony was small and not really private, only a panel between and we had loud, smokers next door. Thought there would be a flooding problem with the door-less shower but it worked fine

Review of Freedom May 12 cowboy cruisin
Cabin 7435 is one of the last balconies toward aft. There is an extra overhang fro Lido for extra protection against sun and rain. It is on the Empress deck so there are residences above and below making it quite. We experienced a slight vibration that was very relaxing. The room had a fridge. Very typical Carnival room - quite comfortable,

6422 Base sounds and vibrations until 12:30am from below.Cabin is spacious,a lot of storage and nice decor.We loved the balcony.Close to rear elevators. A great room If noise doesn't bother you(I can't fall asleep without noise,so for me the room was perfect).

Our balcony cabin was clean. The balcony somewhat small. Bathroom seemed larger than some I have been on. Closets adequate. Liked having a couch as well as beds.

Loved the balcony. Our steward, Sarge, was so nice. The bed kept slipping apart. I think the mattresses are a bit old in that room, but that was the only complaint. I can't believe how much fits into that tiny room. That floor plan, which we have had on a previous Carnival cruise is great. I like that your door does not open right into your space and the bathroom door shields you from the hall if it does get opened. Closet space was so good. We loved it.

Balcony too small for a wheelchair. Chair in room too small for anyone over 150lbs. Couldn't use plug in bathroom as newer plug prongs won't fit. Door to balcony opens out and chair was in the way.

Great vacation zumbafan
Our cabin was just right and the balcony was small but a great place to read and enjoy a glass of wine while watching the sunset. The only negative is that we were near the lobby elevators and could hear the salsa music on our 2nd night--couldn't hear music any other evenings

We had a balcony cabin for the first time but smokers in the next cabin ruined that. Also the noise from clubs was un-tolerable.

our cabin was 6271. It was WAY to noisy. It is just off the attrium and main elevator areas. Late nights and early mornings, people were so very loud. This would only be a last resort cabin choice!

Decnet cabin size--great balcoy space -great closet space--we had 3 in room and had plenty of space for everything. Weird noises -and sometimes could heasr the disco.

Cabin 6408 is over the disco and is very loud. Would not recommend this room for someone who does not stay up late. Cabin 9249 is a great cain, quiet and very nice.

We were in Cabin 6240, do not book this cabin or one near it! We were located above the main show lounge and taking a nap in the afternoon or even getting to bed early is nearly impossible due to the noise from the showroom. The cabin itself and the balcony were normal it is just the location above the showroom.

Carnival Freedom May 4 Cruisin'Trooper
This ship is like all the other Carnival ships when it comes to the cabins. The balcony cabin is nice and comfy. Water is hot and the pressure in the shower is great. The only problem with this particular cabin and probably all the ones in our area of the ship was the all night thumping and noise from the casino and disco below. This is the first and last time we were on the 6th deck. Disco music, casino noise, and the karokee singing vibrated the floor and walls in the cabin everynight until about 2am. I honestly thought about sleeping on the balcony a couple of nights. The walls and floors must be paper thin! Stay on deck 7 or higher and you'll be okay, or stay on 6 and be in the forward section.

Cabin 6248 is supposed to be "port side" but we got the opposite view everytime. However it is very clean and has a large balcony. Noise isn't an issue in this cabin, and has clear 180 degree sight.

Excellent layout. Watch out for the step into the bathroom over the small rail there. Nice balcony and rooms bigger than other cruise ships from what our friends have said and we saw on another line. Panorama deck is wonderful and quiet plus you feel less of the ship movement (waves) the farther up you go. Could you a few more in bathroom amenities such as razors, toothpaste, lotion, suntan lotion, etc.

Great cabin. located just around corner from elevator bank and mid ship. Plenty of space, luggage fits under bed. Plenty of closet space, although we did bring extra hangers. wonderful bedding! Almost didn''t miss our own bed at home. A balcony is the only way to go for us now we will never go back. Music could be heard from the deck below, but it never bothered us, we were too tired to notice!!
