Our cabin was a forward, interior, wheelchair accessible room (9204). While we did not need the accessibility feature of the room we did appreciate all the extra room in the bathroom.
In a demonstration of good service we found our room a bit warm. Unfortunately, the fan we brought aboard was confiscated (return upon disembarkation)... Guest services provided an "approved" fan (ironically it was older and in a poorer state of repair compared to the new fan we purchased for the trip). They also had maintenance check the room temp (they found it above the Carnival acceptable range of 72-74F) and corrected the issue the next morning.
Ample storage. Comfortable bed. We don't hang out in the room so a window or balcony doesn't deliver the value for the extra $. Read entire member review >>
The interior cabin was more spacious than we were expecting. Of course, it is small, but it is very well laid out and has plenty of storage. Although we purchased a 'guaranteed' cabin, we were given one in a good location. Read entire member review >>
We booked inside guarantee & were assigned to 9204, which is a handicap cabin. Loved the location, as it was on our favorite deck, Lido and it was very quiet. The bathroom was huge compared to regular cabin bathrooms. Since the shower is so big, the clothesline can hold more swimwear. There are no lips to step over, either, which was nice! I posted pics on cruiselinerooms.com for anyone who wants to see. Note - this cabin only has 2 small closets. Fortunately, we pack fairly light. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was excellent. Two large twin beds pushed together to make a queen bed. Our cabin attendant was a great guy named Liebert. He made up the room in the morning and turned the bed down at night. He called us by name after giving it to him only once. Always a nice guy with a smile. Read entire member review >>
A small cabin, but adequate for our needs. The room got a lot more navigable AFTER we stowed the luggage under the beds. As usual, Carnival had ignored our request to have the beds separated and we found them together, but the steward (Allan, whose service was good) had them separated before bedtime the first night. Ventilation was adequate and the room was comfortable. Great location, on Lido Deck just past the atrium lobby, nice and close to pools, good food and (for my sister) the smoking area on Panorama Deck 10. Read entire member review >>
Room 8334 mid ship close to elevators/stairs. GREAT room. Would book again in a heartbeat. Yes you do here the pool chairs being moved above but we slept through it every time. Our drawers were a little whopper jawed (had to jiggle to open and close) but no big deal. Bathroom was spacious and shower is awesome! (I miss that shower lol). Our housekeeper was awesome too. Plenty of storage for belongings. No complaints! Read entire member review >>
Tiny but not bad for the price. It wasnt the priority for me so it was clean and somewhere to get ready and sleep. I did hear the lobby music but its wasnt too bad. It didnt last all night and you are so tired from the day that it doesnt really bother you especially because I sleep with a pillow over my head. Read entire member review >>
8317.. directly underneath the Lido Pool deck. large inside cabin, plenty of space. Refrigerator, robes, towels always replenished. Near midship elevators and near self service laundry with an iron! Read entire member review >>
Parents letting children run down halls and hollering to one another made it noisy on several nights.
I was surprised that being under the lido deck that we only occasionally heard chairs being moved around or them setting up food stations.
I was originally going on this trip by myself so it did not matter where I was on ship. When Dad decided to come along and a wheelchair was added it made it a slight bit more crowded and tight for us to get him down halls unless wheelchair was collapsed and he used as a walker until we were able to open up for him.
Other that this everything worked out well. Adequate hangers for both our clothing and drawer space. Read entire member review >>
Convenient to elevators, slight noise from above (assuming its the stacking of the pool chairs) plenty of closet space (3) and the bathroom was surprisingly bigger than expected. Nice little desk/nook area too. Read entire member review >>
We were booked in cabin 9203, which is an "interior obstructed view" cabin. This is a handicapped cabin, which we booked knowing that if someone truly in need required the cabin we would gladly be giving it up to them. This cabin has a forward facing window, the view of which is partially obstructed by the forward railing. The door to the observation area outside of our window was just down the hall, which was very nice when arriving and departing from the ports. With the lights on in the cabin people on deck just outside the cabin could see in very clearly, so we had to be conscious of keeping the curtains closed whenever changing or, you know. :rolleyes: :) I would say the only true downside to this cabin is that there is no "hallway" when you come in the door, so [I]any[/I] noise in the passageway could be clearly heard in the room. Ear plugs at night fixed that in short order. Read entire member review >>
Cabin #9239 was a great location. It was close to all of the action but not at all noisy. It was very small for 4 people, but I expected that when I requested an inside stateroom. Read entire member review >>
