Perfect cabin for me. It was a little bit aft, and I made sure to get the 7th floor (the best floor by far) because it had cabins above and below, which helped to assure a quieter cabin. Wouldn't want to be close to a nightclub or something! Plenty of room and the balcony was really great to have. Bed was comfy, too, with nice sheets and such. Nice to have the TV for a little connection to the mainland while traveling. The bathroom was well designed for top efficiency in a relatively small space. Read entire member review >>
Everything we needed or expected....very comfortable.... and our stateroom steward, Jeffery, was at the "top of his game"...having a double balcony with one of our daughters next door in adjacent stateroom gave us a neat double balcony. Read entire member review >>
LOVED our cabin. The balcony really adds a lot to the value of the room. We watched sunsets from our cabin, watched the water, watched dolphins, had balcony parties that involved up to 8 people, and yelled from our balcony at the other ships in Cozumel. It was an amazing bonus upon waking, to immediately step outside and sit. We would order OJ with our room service and mix it with our bottle of champagne and have mimosas in our robes on the balcony. We really thought the room had plenty of space. The beds tend to come apart a little at night so you may wind up sleeping in the crack. Plenty of drawer space. Only one plug! Some tvs can be unplugged for plug usage. Read entire member review >>
We all agreed this is the exact cabin we want every time. The balcony gave the room the feel of being larger. Also we were on top of the main theater and had no problems with noise in our room. Read entire member review >>
The room was a whole other thing. It was a NIGHTMARE and we were not alone. The average temp was upper 70's and every single person in our group of 13 that came to our room commented on how hot it was compared to theirs. So we went to their rooms and started complaining to guest services. They told us it "fell within their acceptable range" and refused to do anything about it. The "acceptable range" is between 65-80 degrees!!!! Our cabin read 78 when the guy came! We had to order a fan which used our ONLY outlet because we could not sleep and sweat all night. The safe wouldn't work night one, then they told us we didn't know what we were doing and reset it night two, night three the safe quit working entirely and we had to wait an hour for someone to come up, then they had to drill holes in it to open it and then replace the entire door to it.... but remember night two it was user error... smh. FYI if you need them to service your room you have to be present in your room for them to even come in so expect to wait at least an hour in your room if you need maintenance! Every time we had to stand in guest services line there were always about 5-20 people in it waiting, and we witnessed many people complaining about their rooms being too hot as well.

Nice cabin with plenty of room. We had our granddaughter with us and they made the couch into a bed but we do wish they would have made it into a couch during the day when we weren't sleeping. Read entire member review >>
We had 6th floor standard size balcony, which was perfect level, only one flight of stairs down to casino, shops, bars and theatre on level five, and only three flight of stairs up to pool and buffet on nine. Not much to say about accommodations - Carnival has some of the biggest standard sized cabins around, with plenty of storage space, far more that two people need for a week. Balcony was small, with just two chairs and a table, but perfect for sitting out and surveying your kingdom, as the ship sails along ! Read entire member review >>
A typical Carnival balcony cabin. No particular annoying characteristics. Our toilet exploded, but that was an isolated incident and was resolved in minutes, so I would not expect that to be a negative. This stateroom does have connecting door, but we heard very little from the young and fairly rowdy folks in there. Read entire member review >>
One word of caution about this cabin (7369) for people who are looking to sail on the Freedom in the future it is right across from the steward storage area for the vacuums/service carts/other misc stuff. We didnt think anything of it at the time of booking, but for the first two nights around 11:45pm and between 3:00am and 4:00am, then again around 6:00am there would be LOUD banging, door slamming and talking by the stewards as they put their supplies away/got them out. This is a very loud part of the hallway - and it is inevitable since these individuals need to get their supplies...just some fair warning! Read entire member review >>
Cabin 8430 has to be the noisiest cabin on ship. All night long you hear the "comings and goings" of other passengers visiting the only all night eatery on ship. SHAME on Carnival for charging the same for this balcony cabin as any other. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was fine. Nice Balcony. Room was not cool, called maintenance and they said 72 was fine, and that was when the sun was down. It was 80 degrees in the sun. Close to elevators and quiet hallway. Read entire member review >>
We were on the lido deck forward, port side room 9222. There is alittle bit of noise ,but not to keep you awake. It sounds like water running ,but I loved the room anyway, it didn't bother me in any way, I was just curious of why. As far as quiet, the hallways were always quiet cause those rooms only hold two in each room, so hardly any family's on that deck. I always love forward cabins. I used the balcony a lot.

We had a balcony cabin. The balcony was roomy and made a great gathering place for friends. The storage and closets were adequate. The shower was great for the limited space. It flooded the first day and staff came IMMEDIATELY h to suck out the pipes (never happened again). Balcony rooms come with a couch that has drawers underneath for more storage. Room was kept spotless. We were in the center of the ship on the Upper Deck. The location is so good we booked the same room for next year. Read entire member review >>
Very quiet and loved the balcony. Add the balcony however takes out space - making the ocean view a larger room for a family of four. I enjoyed the balcony enough the space trade off was OK. Go for the 7th floor as it is secluded from the noise of the Lido Deck. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin is what we expected, clean, large and plenty of closet space. The beds were comfortable, we slept great every night. The negative side was our cabin steward. We initially gave him $20.00 which was a big mistake without going into details the supervisor had to get involved. Was a very big difference from our previous stewards from former cruises on Carnival. Read entire member review >>
Carnival Freedom - Balcony Cabin 6355 - This room is right over the casino bar area. We could hear the band playing but it did not bother us enough to keep us awake. Mornings were very quiet. Loved the location. We had elevators/stairs either forward or back, depending on which part of the ship we were heading to and the same goes for up and down, we were right in the middle. I would choose this room again in a minute. Read entire member review >>
As on all Carnival ships the cabins are all pretty much the same per category ( inside, outside, balcony etc.). Standard Carnival Cabin with balcony with 2 chairs and a table. Couch was used as bed for 3rd person. Beds comfy! There is no pull down bunk in this cabin. Steward was good. Only one plug in for the cabin so bring power strip if you need many plug ins: cameras, phones, lap top etc ! Read entire member review >>
Tiny room was barely enough for two people, so the four of us kept bumping into each other. Small balcony, tiny bathroom, but good closets. Rooms are clean and smell and insects free though. Read entire member review >>
Room 7341 is right near the mid-ship elevators making it really easy to get anywhere we wanted. Room 7341 is a category 8C balcony cabin on the starboard side of the ship. It has two twin beds pushed together to make a king, and a sofa/bed. The room is a good size for 3 people. We were able to move around fairly easily while each one was getting ready. The balcony was nice because it gave us some extra room to go and relax if we wanted. I found it very relaxing to be able to go out and just watch the waves. Being on deck 7 was nice; we were sandwiched between two other guest decks so we did not have the noise of chairs or music coming from public areas. The one downside, that is also and advantage, is that the cabin is right across from the laundry room. Everyone was considerate and noise was not a problem, but it is easy to make a lot of noise in there just by talking. Read entire member review >>
We had cabin 8244, and this was the same cabin we had on the Liberty in '07. It is a quiet location near the Atrium elevators. Closet space was bigger than needed, and they had drawers and a couple other small cabinets. Read entire member review >>
