Balcony Cabins

61 Reviews
Oceanview stateroom with a private balcony and twin beds that convert to a king. Every Carnival guest is assured of spacious, comfortable accommodations. All staterooms have carpeting, ample drawer and closet space, private facilities (shower, basin and toilet), telephone and color television showing first-run films. Our SuperLiners all feature staterooms above ocean level for a more comfortable cruise.

Balcony (8C)
Decks: Deck 7 | Deck 8
Room was as expected, plenty of storage and ample closet space. LOVE having balcony, don't think I can ever cruise without one, now that we have been spoiled by balcony on last two cruises. Happy to have refrigerator in room, did not have one on past cruises. Wish there was more than one outlet in the cabin, hard to keep everything charged - will definitely bring power strip next time. Room stewards did great job keeping room clean and was attentive to when we left so room was always cleaned right away.

We had a balcony midship... I'm not sure of the letter category. There was not much extra noise even though it was near an elevator. However, there was extra noise from the deck above. It is located in a very convenient spot, so it's a trade off.

Nice enough. Free upgrade to balcony! But it had not been cleaned thoroughly. One of the two mattresses was well past its end of life (I have a picture of the hole in the middle), but I could not convince my wife to request a replacement by the time I figured out why her back ached. The walls transmitted sounds from next door with very little attenuation. I am so glad we had a cabin next to the quiet bridge so we only got noise from one side. I am a big fan of sex, and I appreciate people with different sexual proclivities, but hearing homosexual sex whenever we were in our cabin was a bit of a turn-off.

The cabin was always cleaned properly. Did not give use the beach towels one day and when we called housekeeping we where told they were all at break.

First Cruise - Pretty Good! CraftyScribbles
Pros: Spacious, clean, wonderful balcony, quiet most times Cons: A rule about roaming kids and teens without parental supervision must be put in place (especially about children in rooms away from their parents - not a good idea).

Beautiful cabin, great balcony. Loved waking up and sitting outside just as sun is coming up. We had two teens in addition to two adults in the one cabin so it got a little cramped, but it was completely expected.

This was a port side, forward balcony for 4. Storage was adequate, bathroom was big enough, bed was comfortable and the balcony was a nice size! The outlets were too few as mentioned in prior reviews. Overall a very nice place for 7 days.

Disappointing! oliver8

We did like our cabin (midship balcony) and really appreciated the cabin steward. She had our names down pat after the first day and kept the cabin immaculate

We loved the location of this cabin. Was very quiet-didn't know we had neighbors, even though we saw them everyday. Close to the aft elevators is very convenient.

Cabin: 8201 on the Veranda deck. This is the first cabin right behind the starboard wing bridge. Picked this cabin because I thought we might see a bit of the bridges "going on's", and was not disappointed! Great view of the navigation station and very interesting during docking. You can see through the wing bridge so the forward view from the balcony is great. It was fun exchanging nods and waves with the Captain and crew every day.

Was very impressed with the size and layout of this cabin. We didn't come anywhere close to filling up the closet and cabinet space. The amount of shelving in the bathroom did not disappoint. Everything worked as it should have and the decor was pleasing.

Cabin 9238 - larger room and bath than comparable staterooms on other lines with MUCH more storage space.

Carnival Glory beware Cat Woman 4
6469 stay away from. Clean and comfortable but the noise from the bars one floor down will keep you up all night. I like music, but this was a vibration that was terrible . A loud bass noise.

Cabin and bathroom had plenty of storage space. We did hear carts up and down the hallway as we were near "Crew Only" doors. We were fairly close to the elevators.

Great room overall in the cabin and the bathroom. Plenty of closets and drawers to stuff things. Tip: have the mini bar emptied by your cabin steward and use the fridge for medicine, water and beer. Beds have to be adjusted to your likeness. Ask steward for egg crates under the mattress and be aware there are two beds (cots) pushed together for a double/queen so there is a middle and sometimes the two beds do not butt together on the same plain. Towels were well worn and they do give you two beach towels to take on shore, just don't loose them as they are $22 each. There is a safe in the room as well. TIP: you can bring on none opened water and soda and one bottle of wine, carry on not checked luggage.

very close to elevators and Amber Palace showroom, but very far from Platinum dining room which is where you are if you have assigned dining times. you can faintly hear the noise from the Amber Palace, but the shows don't run late. overall it is a great room.

Garish, adequate, enough space, ready for an update, good (almost too bright) lighting, good storage, nice TV, mattress firm and needs replacement, few outlets- needed extension cord for CPAP machines, quiet location. Public decks handy using stairs, but aft location required walking to most ship activities, disembarking, eating, etc.

awsome balcony, a till small w/ 4 people

We had a balcony room, as is our usual preference. The room itself was rather plain, with a regular door and large window to the balcony instead of the usual sliding glass. I prefer the sliding glass, but this presented no real problem. What was disappointing was the couch and the bed, especially the bed! Both were terrible, but I found it difficult to sleep on a bed that was comparable to lying on a table. I complained to our room steward the very next morning, and for 2 more consecutive mornings, but nothing was done until I went to the customer service desk on day 4 when they were finally able to come up with a pad that made it more comfortable. The same pad that my room steward said was not available. The couch was just as uncomfortable and not suitable for watching TV. I had noticed that some of the passengers had taken to using the deck chairs in their rooms. The bathroom was small and the shower was minuscule with a shower curtain instead of glass doors and I found the hairdryer being outside, attached to a drawer an inconvenience. There was plenty of storage space, the room was clean and the towel animals a nice touch.

Would have been better if the couch and bunk weren't always made into beds but instead having a couch to use would have been nice and having the bunk up would have given more head room and less head bruises! We were right above a club but it didn't bother us but at times it was loud. Little space to put 4 suitcases due to couch cushions being under the bed. Balcony was lovely in port, and while the sun was out despite the constant wind. Got great moon pictures from it!

First time we had a balcony so we enjoyed the extra space. The hallway was quiet and the steward kept our room well maintained.

Closets are perpendicular to the cabin door and you could clobber the open closet door with the cabin door or the bathroom door. Plenty of storage space. Bed was comfortable. TV is a flat panel but not a huge one - ABC, NBC, and CBS along with some cable and paid movie channels. Bathroom was adequate as was the shower. Right under the food on Lido - gotta love it.

Larger than expected bathrooms and showers. Our friends were in a cabin in the 6353 or 6357 area and they said their room was directly above where the band in the casino played. We were in 6339 and 6343 and thought the cabins were perfect.

Hallway was too noisy outside cabin 7359 due to steward stations. Please enforce or increase smoking rules and limitations. More hangers in closets, please! I've been bringing my own.

Our bed was horrible. You could see the lumps in the bed when you walked into the room. There was no cuddling on this cruise because the mattresses were so worn. Both my husband and I were forced to sleep in the well worn groves of the pushed together twin beds. My experience on my last cruise was you could barely tell that the bed was two twin beds pushed together. This room is also across from the laundry room. Overall, the noise level was not too bad, but on our last sea day, the noise was noticeable.

Pretty quiet balcony room even though we were by the Atrium elevators. Would pick this location again!

Next to a room with a family that had a crying child. We could hear the child, the mother yelling at the child and another child slamming the balcony door and yelling out on the balcony every morning. This is next to a room that has extra beds so maybe families frequently get this room.

Great Balcony, perfect location, 2 floors below common decks and two above casino and lounges.

The Cabins space was much better than we experienced on any RCL ship. Great bathroom shelving. +++ The beds were very comfortable and clean. We could NOT enjoy our balcony due to a Cigar smoker on our left and Cigarette smokers on our right! Even though we requested a non smoking Cabin area.

Glory Days! TRSGayle
We went to our state room which was a balcony on Verandah. Room 8268. This room was prime location! Right near the main atrium elevator and right by Lido deck. It is sandwiched between two room floors so we heard no lido deck activity but were close to EVERYTHING! The room was plenty big enough and very clean. The balcony was prime location and wonderful!!! Lots of closet and drawer space and decent size bathroom. Our room steward was Luki and he was fantastic.

Loud cabin, could hear chairs sliding around upstairs on the Lido deck. Very good location though, close to stairs to the Red Sail Restaurant.

Carnival Glory, 8352 - port-side, mid-ships, balcony cabin on the Verandah deck. Location close to the mid-ships elevators and stairwell, and laundry room. Only 1 deck below Lido deck which was good and bad. Good because it's convenient to all the food and activities on the Lido, but bad because it's directly below the outdoor dining area of the Red Sail restaurant, and we would hear chairs scraping the floor and being slid around above us all during the day. The noise wasn't nearly as bad at night, though, after the Red Sail finished serving dinner.

Glorious Time! GACruisers08
Great balcony, lots of room, nice bathroom. Cabin was under the red sail dining room so day and night you would hear carts being rolled around overhead. This was distracting, but overall it was a good cabin.
