Very comfortable and cozy. I did not miss my bed or pillows one bit. Our cabin was always kept spotless.

Cabin 6228

I was skeptical of the cabin because I could not find any reviews on it, but it was perfect! There is no obstructed view and it is great when you are leaving Miami and docking in the ports. Imade made sure the bed was made and the cabin cleaned every time we left and I wonder if he had a crystal ball to know when we left. Towel animals were made everyday and I even had a couple I had not seen before.

Nice lay out - set up with a king and bunk twins. A little challenging for my 5'7" daughter to climb down from bunk, but 1/day, she was fine (complaining teen :))

Cabin very loud. Door to front of ship right outside the door and it tends to be very busy at dawn and during the midnight hours when trying to get some sleep. Also people liked to stand around the desk outside the door and shout to each other.

Good Cruise By: NICULisa
I thought the location was perfect! We could hear the band in the casino so if you are early to bed that could be problematic. It was a VERY easy walk down to the casio, the Golden dining room, and the laundromat. There was no rocking and everything worked fine.

Cabin 8350

Cabin 8350 was well situated, near stairs and elevator, and in a quiet location. The balcony is one of my favorite haunts, as one of the main reasons why I buy cruise tickets instead of flying is to view the always fascinating and endless sea.

Our room was very nice, and our steward Jimmy and his assistant were incredible. Smallest shower I have ever experienced a boat, but other than that to room was good.

Cabin 8343
Jan 2013
We were in cabin 8343, with a balcony. When we got to our cabin, our luggage was there, waiting for us. We booked our excursions through the TV. The balcony is worth the price of admission. It was pretty quiet room, didn't hear neighbors or the upstairs shuffles much. The zipper on the blanket on the couch bed, kept scratching my arm during the night, so I finally had to pull the sheet up and tuck it over it. The mirror is missing piece in the bathroom. The toilet button had to be pushed three or four times before it would flush. The curtains had holes in it, letting the sunshine in.

Our Girly Cruise By: Ronnie01
Our stateroom balcony 8340 was in a great location. Quiet, and a good size for four people. Was always clean and comfortable. Location was close to Red sail so that too made it nice.

Cabin was good size. Temperature was to cold when we got there, fixed then was to hot. Had to have them come back and make it cold again. Better for sleeping. Room service dishes from dinner was not picked up until the next morning when the cabins were cleaned.

Pleasantly suprised By: armywife12
Great balcony not huge but has two chairs and a table highly recommend for the extra money. Shower head and water pressure unbelievable awesome!!! A lot of storage space for clothes. Cabin was roomy for two ppl. Beds were comfortable. Need to improve on ac...74 for all cabins is a bit hot. 70 would be better.

Great balcony. Great location close to elevators that took us straight up to Red Sail Restaurant, pool etc. Also very easy to get to promenade deck from our location. Noisy at times as it is directly above the lounge that hosted karaoke and comedy.

Valor still good, but sliding By: cruisinmimiof3
6288-I was concerned having a bar below us. Those concerns were not realized, we never heard a thing. We had people in our group next door in 6292 and we asked Oscar, the steward to open the balcony up so we could share a big one, and he did it that first day. It was great. The rooms were clean and comfy.

6255 Balcony Deck 6 Above Amber Palace Show Lounge. You can hear the show, but it is over at 11:15 so kind of fun and quiet after that. Near the stairs and elevator. Very convenient.

Very narrow room. Very small shower. Mattresses were ridiculously uncomfortable -- they were four inches. Room was clean and balcony was worth the extra money. This room on the floor eight was quiet with minimal movement of ship felt.

The balcony cabin was very spacious and the beds were very comfortable. One of the nicest rooms we have ever had. We had ample room for our clothes and the closets were good size also.

Nice balcony. Quiet hallway since it is at the end of the hallway. Seemed like a really long walk to the cabin from the dining and showroom.

Very quiet! We were concerned about being over the show lounge but we never heard anything from below us. The cabin was really far away from everything so not good for those that may be disabled, but excellent if you wanted away from the foot traffic.

A typical Carnival balcony cabin - location was not the best as you could hear the disco at night.

Spring Break 09! By: Carolina Shore
Do you like "Elton John". We had a Balcony cabin for a family of 4, that was assigned to us by Carnival. Location was 6-Upper AFT, Starboard side. Carnival knew we had children, ages 6 and 7 prior to cabin assignment. However we were given a cabin just above the Cinn-a-Bar. Each night until about 130am, sometimes later. A wanna-be American Idol, sang mostly Elton John songs at the piano bar at the top of his lungs as fellow cruisemates tried to chime in. I'm sure most of the cabins surrounding us also heard the loud piano bar late into the night/morning. I guess a lessoned learned not to book a Balcony guaranteed room, as Carnival does not assign accordingly.

Oh Glory. We miss U! By: Lone_Warrior
I liked this cabin. It was basically in the middle of the ship. It had a great balcony with a great view, but the hallway was a bit noisy. I think we were across the space where the crew gathered the towels so there was a lot of crew traffic. The bathroom was small but well-spaced out. We had just enough room for our clothes in the closets.

Having a private balcony was great! We heard some noise from the Amber Palace right below us one night but we are late night people so it didn't bother our sleeping at all.

Cabin 6371
Jun 2008
Cabin- We booked a balcony cabin and it was 6371 (Upper Deck deck 6 mid ship). I have several things to say about this choice. It was the perfect cabin. We were one deck above the promenade where the casino and shopping is. This provided us easy access to the action. We also took these same elevators each morning to the Lido Deck (deck 9). Once we arrived we could turn left and be at the pool, or turn right and simply enter the red sail restaurant (Buffet). Our stewart Renato was awesome. He constantly strived to have everything perfect. The room was large enough for the two of us and let me tell you that the balcony with morning coffee was heaven. I will never cruise without this again. The bed was absolutely comfortable (previously we felt like we slept on camp cots). Now they are thick and the pillows were awesome (I ordered 4 Kings for home). The A/C worked great and the room was comfortable all the time. My son and his friends all had oceanview cabins and the only complaint they had was the A/C. They told their stewarts and the situation was fixed within 12 hours. Overall the cabin was perfect. Plus when we went to leave our stewart gave me a new robe to take home and one of the pillows.
