Oceanview stateroom with private balcony and twin beds that convert to 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.

Room was kept clean and lots of storage space. Shower drain was plugged and was not rectified for the duration of the cruise resulting in water all over floor.

We booked two cabins, one interior that I and my husband shared. The second was a balcony that the two kids shared and we barged in on quite frequently to sit on the balcony. They were both beautifully maintained by Ruby our steward. They had the configuration wrong upon boarding, but one call to Ruby had that fixed before bedtime.

Cabin 7245 is a balcony cabin on the starboard side of deck 7. It is quite close to the main lifts, which is very convenient, but the design of the ship is such that the corridor outside the cabin avoids a lot of through traffic. We did not hear any noise from the lifts or the stairs once we had shut the door. We would certainly choose this cabin on any future 'Legend' cruise. Our cabin steward Ni was delightful. The cabin was quite roomy and the bathroom was very well designed with a comparatively large shower (we have also sailed on P&O, Princess, Holland America, Norwegian and Royal Carribean) - the good quality shower curtain was long enough to completely retain all the water inside the shower and the curtain itself was changed at least twice during the 10 days. The shower is equipped with shower gel and shampoo. Shelving in the bathroom was more than adequate for us. There were always two spare tissue boxes and about 3 spare rolls of toilet paper. The supply of towels was very generous with 3 to 4 bath towels (for 2 of us), 2 hand towels, 2 washers and a floor mat changed twice a day. The shower also has a small clothes line. There was plenty of hanging space and shelf space. Drawers were limited and quite small. The door to the balcony opened out but sealed very well, and we preferred this to the sliding doors on other cruises which tend to whistle a lot in high winds. Bed and pillows were comfortable and the flat screen TV was adequate. I thought it was a silly idea to have to use a credit card to operate the safe (so I couldn't lock it in the safe!). The towel animals were surprisingly inventive. Lighting in the cabin was very good and the design of the light coverings around 2 walls enabled us to hang some clothes lines. The cabin was comfortably air conditioned with an easy-to-use individual control to adjust the settings. The balcony was furnished with two chairs and a small table and all balconies were washed twice during our cruise.

Larger than usual balcony - #5117. Really nice to have the larger sized balcony - didn't know they were there, not that it matters. Not sure if it was an 8F or not. We usually got an 8D. Toilet broke the second day - water shot up from behind it. Took 3+ hours and two calls for someone to come look at it. On and off from then on, the push button was flaky - sometimes it would flush the first time, other times it took several tries. Bed was firm for me - wife said it was too hard. Room cooled and warmed adequately. Haru was excellent cabin steward.

Our cabin was kept very clean by Ron. We tipped him upfront to keep ice in our cooler, asked for an additional third chair for our balcony and extra towels. Layout of the room was nice, we utilized the couch as the third bed instead of bringing the wall bed. Bathroom was roomy and shower somewhat bigger than our last ship (RCL).

Cabin 1030 had a great view, quiet hallway, and no overhead or underneath noise. Very few cabins on this deck, so little to no hall noise.

Our cabin which was our usual, an outside cabin with balcony. But this year, we tried something new this year and booked our cabin on the Verandah Deck Forward. We usually stay same in type of cabin (Mid Ship, Mid Level). Honestly, you could not tell the difference as far as motion, etc.

Great location right near midship elevators. Very quiet as there is wall with glass windows overlooking the atrium right outside the door so you don't hear atrium noise. Can see directly down to the water from the balcony.

Great Cruise High_Seas_Sun_n_Fun
We had 3 adults in our cabin and had more than enough room and storage. Also, what most people don't check is under the bed...there is plenty of room there to store your luggage so it doesn't take up space in the closets. The hair drier in the room only blows warm air so if you have a lot of hair or it is thick...then bring your own. There is also no need to bring shampoo or soap and this is provided in the shower already.

This is a standard Carnival balcony cabin. The noise from a door on the Lido deck above us opening and closing got a little annoying but it was otherwise quiet.

Great as Always! JuliaJon2
We chose 7239 because there's no other balcony to the left and it's near the midship elevators.

clean the mold from the wet areas and the area just under the underside of the lavatory lip (where the counter top extends over the upper lip of the lavatory itself. Much too noisy from overhead on the Lido deck in deck 8 cabins to get a full night's sleep.I never slept through the night once.

Loved the Legend kokomo17
Cabin 6231 was in a perfect location just down the hall from the Atrium elevators and stairs and up or down a few flights to everything. Loved the window outside in the hall that looked onto the Atrium...beautiful touch. Lots of room in the cabin for storage and able to put the suitcases under the bed out of the way. Cabin was in very good repair and cabin stewards kept it very clean. One of the best cabins we've had.

LOVED Stateroom #8112. Fun view of the bridge 50 feet from the room, quiet location with a quiet hallway; lots of closet space; spacious room and spacious balcony; nothing above the room to create noise at night. Superb.

The Legend has been tarnished longislanderlloyd
Very pleased with our room and extended balcony. Plenty of closet space and roomy bathroom and shower. And it was kept immaculately clean 24/7.

Even though this room is technically off the lobby, the noise never traveled. It was quiet and we loved it.

7245
The room was good size and spotless with plenty of storage and a larger than expected bathroom. No flooding and good water pressure. Everything worked. AC good. We tipped the steward when we first met him and asked he keep a small cooler we had brought filled with ice which he did twice a day. Cabin was extremely quiet being sandwiched in between two cabin decks. In addition, it was located behind the mid ship elevators. So there were no cabins across the hall and when people were returning to their cabins after coming off the elevators they would either turn to the right or left to go down the hall and did not pass in front of our cabin.

The Legend Rocks ncracken
I loved my location.  It was near the elevators, never heard any noise from anywhere and I liked that the balcony was in the shade during the day and had more sun in the evening.

Lifeboats below, so no direct view down to the ocean. Didn't really notice. Balcony was a perfect size to be able to dry scuba gear and still have room to hang out.
