This is a "Handicap" room, which we didn't need but it was the only cabin left in the 4H category when we booked the cruise just 3 weeks before departure. The location is awesome! In the middle of the ship, close to the Lido activities (just several steps away), close to the elevators (just several steps away), but QUIET! The bathroom is extra large, to accommodate a wheel chair. The only down side for this cabin were the automatic doors. For a guest with a handicap that requires extra time to enter/exit, this is a necessity. Otherwise, it was an annoyance since the cabin door stayed open long after activating. According to the room steward, the auto opening feature could not be deactivated. Nevertheless, a terrific interior cabin that is quiet and in great location on the Lido (9th) deck. Also, other quests are always coming/going to/from the lido deck, so catching an elevator was quick! This was our first interior cabin and after having balcony cabins on past cruises, we were skeptical about an interior one. But we spend so little time on the cabin (just to change clothes and sleep) it wasn't bad at all (and the price is sure better ;-) Read entire member review >>
Cabin was fine we love our balcony's but knew we were going to be very busy on this cruise! And the $1,000.00 more for a balcony, we went with a inside and took the $1,000. and spent it on beautiful excursions instead! Honestly we got in our room after dinner say 8:30 and went to bed. Room service was knocking at our door at 0630 every morning and we were out of our room by 0730 and got back to our room at 4:30 to clean up for dinner. So we did not see the value with a balcony on this cruise. Read entire member review >>
We stayed in an inside room 1039, Panorama Deck. Room had a lot of movement at night when the ship was underway. More than I expected, even for one of the top decks. There were plenty of shelves and space in the cabin, that we didn't need an over the door hanger for items. Closets had 8 hangers in each hanging closet, that are not movable between closets. Stuck suitcases under the bed to create more room in the cabin. All of them fit perfectly. We found that the hanging wet items over the table near the refrigerator and over the fridge cabinet door, helped things dry faster than the clothesline in the bathroom. The air coming out of that cabinet was hot (like a dryer). Our strategy was to hang them up in bathroom when they were super wet and then move it near the refrigerator when it wasn't dripping. Worked well with swimsuits. Our Cabin Steward Gerald was WONDERFUL! He even gave us a towel animal lesson! Recommend trading your dirty beach towels at the towel hut on Lido deck before returning to the room, so you aren't dragging sand into your room. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was clean, but the bed was not comfortable and the room smelled like someone was cooking cabbage. This lasted all week. The air-conditioning was poor and I had to complain about it. It was addressed and only got slightly better the next day. Read entire member review >>
My cabin ended up being a Handicap cabin. There was a huge bathroom and that was very nice. I think the trade off was that we were missing a cocktail table and a maybe a couch or chair. I would take the large bathroom anytime over a cocktail table. Read entire member review >>
inside cabin on 10th deck; too hot, asked to have air conditioning lowered but AC officer said that cabin temps of 74 degrees are the right temperature for Carnival so that is that. No fan without documented medical condition. Read entire member review >>
