A Great Effort By: fambam4
Good room with a comfortable queen bed, sofa with table and flat screen TV. 3 banks of cupboards and plenty of storage including the bathroom. There was body wash and shampoo dispensers in the bathroom The balcony has two chairs and a table. There was no noise from the elevator or the halls. Occasionally you could hear very muffled sounds from the restaurant above. Maybe pack ear plugs if you're a light sleeper. It didn't worry us. Our steward Ruby was terrific and our room was services twice daily.

Couldn't get much worse By: vacationcruisings
We were tossed from room to room over our entire stay on this ship as Carnival office simply could not get their act together. Even though we had our paperwork showing we were to stay in the same room we were moved from room to room like cattle. Each time we had to pack up and move and when we produced our paperwork - begging not to have to pack up again and move - too bad we were moved anyway. One of Carnival's saying is cruising is great as you only unpack once. Rubbish - we moved over 4 times!!!

Nice cabin at mid ships. Port side meant that we sailed past the Opera House and City on the way in. Nice way to come home.Being just below the buffet on deck 9, it can get a little noising at night when furniture is being moved for cleaning, but this is offset by the benefit of being close to deck 9 during the day.

Amazing First Cruise By: beckyberry822
The cabin was very spacious for 3 people and clean. The staff was great with setting up the cabin for bed and cleaning. The balcony was definitely the way to go! I wouldn't cruise any other way!

Wonderful Cruise By: CRUZN CHICK
We had never had a balcony room before so I loved it!! We were below lido deck (which was very convenient), but where we were located, we hardly heard anything. Late at night you could hear the chairs etc being moved around, but I sleep with ear plugs anyway so it didn't bother me. I thought the cabin was clean with plenty of room and places to put your clothes (I brought a lot too). Make sure you use the drawers in the sofa too and also bring some extra hangers. The balcony was very private. Our cabin steward was great - brought ice to us 3 times a day. We purchased a bottle of rum and vodka through the ship and brought a bottle of wine each on board and diet coke. That was just enough for us. I purchased 2 boat drinks. I was very pleased with our cabin and will probably never cruise without a balcony again!!

We actually had two cabins; one balcony and one interior across the hall for our 18 & 20 year old kids on the Panorama Deck 8 (one floor down from the Lido, aft section and if I may do so, I do recommend this cabin area - very good location since you are a single flight of stairs up to the Serenity Lounge section of the Lido Deck (adults 21 and over) and the Ledo "food court" and forward pool areas. I could go on all day about what we enjoyed about the cabin location, air conditioning, balcony, service staff, etc. but to summarize, it was excellent for us and I will gladly respond to any questions that you send.

Cabin 4204
Dec 2012
No other balconies right in front of it, so we didn't have any smoke blowing back towards our balcony. Also, for those looking at this room in the future, yes there is a lifeboat right where the room next to you would be, but don't worry about it messing with the view, 99% of the time it was a non-issue. If you want to see what the view looks like from that balcony, search for the image named "Roatan, as seen from our balcony" on photosynth.net (upload date is 12/1/2012). Overall a good room, nice and quiet.

IT WAS A LEGEND By: CORAL02
I had a Balcony this time I was not as Impressed as I was on the Inspiration though, and it was an ocean view,I had picked my room better myself last time but Damian my cruise guy did this time, I will trust myself next time... he knew what I requested,but just didn't deliver the right Balcony.. I wanted higher up like D or E like Empress on my last cruise and mid ship was what I requested, he gave me lower and not mid ship.

Cabin 8215
Aug 2012
Standard balcony room, no obstructions. Beautiful views since we were high up. Very, very noisy all night long since we were right below the Lido deck. Room was clean but slightly outdated. TV was old and didn't work all the time. Electrical outlet, there was only 1 and stuff barely charged in it. 3 large closets and some cabinets throughout. Suitcases fit under main bed. No issues with room as a whole other than noise.

We stayed in 5192. It was right off the elevators, and one of the outer most cabins. It was quiet, comfortable, and in the perfect location for us.

Change the safes to a pin number access so both passengers can get in it without the companion being there.

Cabin 8181
Jul 2010
Room 8181 Our room was nice. Balcony view was great! The only negative thing about this room is it is on the Panorama deck and is directly below the LIDO DECK. If they have nightly activities on the deck.....you will hear it. If you like to sleep late....you will be awakened to deck chairs moving and footsteps. Did not bother us particularly, but was something I noted and will definitely consider on my next trip. My children stayed in room 8233 and it was about the same. Same view, etc.

Cabin 4217
May 2010
It was pretty good sized. We had a balcony room and it felt plenty spacious enough for two people. The bed wasn't very comfortable but I never lost any sleep over it. The bathroom was tiny but I was had realistic expectations for that and didn't mind.

BRRRRRR COLD Legend By: mdrobtx
We had cabin 5236. This is one of the obstructed view cabins with the extended balcony. It is 3 times the length of the balconies on either side of us. It is called obstructed view because of the life boats being directly beneath you. This was no problem because you can still see straight out and it was very little problem for the cheaper price. The room is directly next to the elevator but it was extremely quiet without any anchoring or engine noise.

Cabin 4208
Aug 2009
4208/4210 - Standard Balcony cabins with a little couch that made up into a third bed - we had three people in each cabin. Balcony was small but nice. Cabins directly above the dining room but we never heard anything. Balconies directly above exterior promenade deck and could be viewed from decks above - so not that private.

Beyond the Basics By: calgary cruiser
Cabin 4224 - deck four aft. Great location if ships movement doesn't affect you. There is only one cabin beside you as there is a hallway on the other side and no one across the hall. Very quite. Close access to the dining room but a long walk to Follies Lounge.
