Cabin 6283
Cabin was average. The entry door stuck a little and we had to pull it hard to be sure it shut behind us. Not worth complaining about though.

Cabin 6220
Room Clean we even wiped some things down and they were clean. Love having a balcony and watching the sea. Bed was comfortable. My youngest was with us and her bed was really firm but that didn't stop her from catching ZZ's since we wore her out every day. Steward was the best.

So So Cruise Don.P
The cabin was nice. My refrigerator was stocked fine, but didn't have any diet pop, only regular pop. On the 5th day I asked the housekeeper if he could put some diet pop in my fridge and he put 2 cans in and I was charged for those like it was extra. I drank one of the pops and then they locked the cabinet the last night so I couldn't get the other diet pop that I had paid for and was saving back so I would have a cold pop to take with me while I was waiting to get off the ship. Had I known they were going to lock it up like I was going to steal the crappy beer and whatever else they stocked it with I would have emptied the thing and thrown all the beverages overboard. I'm still trying to figure out what my $1,600 cruise ticket actually covered?? I guess a bed and a shower.

Cabin 6368
About what I expected. The pictures on Carnival's website give you a pretty good sense of what it's like. The bed was comfortable enough. The cabin is not the main attraction on a cruise ship, it's basically a place to meet, change, and sleep...and it served it's purpose adequately. I definitely recommend the balcony, the brief times we were all in our cabin during the day was mostly spent on the balcony while others changed or showered. I love to see what's going on, and sit out and watch the sun rise in the morning.

Cabin 6255
Great cabin lots more room than an interior. Could hear the loud music from the showtime theater but i didn tgo to sleep till after midnight so it didnt bother me. If you have kids or go to bed early DO NOT pick a room on this floor in the front of ship. Room was clean sofa had a tear in it though..

Cabin 9418

Another first for us was a balcony room. We weren't planning on having one but by the time we booked the interior and oceanview rooms were all gone so we splurged on the balcony. I would call ourselves budget cruisers which is why we pretty much stick to the interior rooms but we loved having the balcony. It was so nice to have the sun coming into the room in the morning which got us out of bed to go out on the balcony with some coffee each morning and enjoy the cool breeze, the sunrise, and the docking at the ports on the shore days. The room was more roomy than our normal interior rooms and it was great to have. If you have the extra money I would definitely recommend that balcony room. We may go with one again one day. It just depends on the port stops and where we want to spend the extra money.

Cabin 8389

Our room was great! The room steward and assistant did a wonderful job of taking care of us. This room looks directly down on Deck 5 where there is a whirlpool hot tub that is open until 10:00 pm. We never had a problem with noise though.

Cabin 6427

Our cabin was 6427. A bit smaller than Norwegian and Princess, but still enough room to move around. The balcony was also smaller than the other 2 cruise lines. Our cabin was midship over the karaoke bar. It really didn't bother us, although we did hear some BAD singing! Our room was also across the hall from a crew door with a sign that said Chemical room. Again, it wasn't loud or bothersome.
The refrigerator was locked due to the mini bar items there, and it took 2 days to catch up with the steward to get it unlocked so we could chill our bottle of wine.
The cabin was kept clean and neat by our steward and there was enough storage space.

Great balcony but was across the hall from crew space which could be a bit noisy.

Cabin 6233
Not Up to Par NICULisa

I think cabin 6233 was just fine. Everything in there worked fine. Balcony is standard. Good proximity to glass elevators. When lobby bar was in full swing around dinner time, it was noisy but by the time I wanted to snuggle in things were quiet and I was not disturbed. I would request this cabin again.

Cabin 6210
We were in Cabin 6210 on the Carnival Magic. We loved the appointments in the Cabin (Bathroom, closets, bed, etc). We had a Balcony Room, on the aft side of the ship. It provided amazing sunrises on way to the islands and then sunsets on the way back from Cozumel to Texas. The only negative is that we were in the front of the ship so we felt every wave crash as we had 40 mph winds on the way from Texas to Montego Bay and the same on way from Cozumel back to Texas

Balcony was nice, but too noisy with the slamming doors of neighbors. Also, hallway too noisy.

Cabin 6215
We had a balcony cabin 8A on deck six - cabin 6215. The cabin was good for us. We were initially concerned about the proximity to deck 5 but this cabin is well forward of any areas that would be noisy. No issues at all with this cabin and would recommend cabins in the forward area of deck 6.

Cabin 10257
10257: Balcony cabin. Typical lay out. 3 closets, 3 drawers, 2 additional drawers under couch. Same small bathroom. Flat screen TV. Very close to elevators and stairs. Liked being so close to pool area. Quiet. Very windy the first few nights and we could really feel the ship rocking, even woke me up a few times.

Cabin 2322
Magical Time Alzaman
We were in a cove balcony, 2322, and I wish they were on every ship. I would take it over a suite considering the value. Even though we were 2 decks above the water it felt like we were at water level, and every morning we would open the curtains and lay and watch the water go by. Room was standard size which is more than enough for 2 people. Plenty of storage, place to sit, 3 closets and of course the closet size bathroom. The room had a squeaking sound when we were underway which bothered my fix it nature, but my wife didn't really care. I called maintenance and they were able to dampen it somewhat. It was due to the ship structure right at our front door. 2322 would not be my first choice again but I loved the location so I would select a room close to it.

Cabin 6463
Balcony Cabin on the upper deck #6463 I liked our location easy access to the lido. In the future, I will book deck 7 so that I am between cabins instead of having a piano bar directly below us. This cabin is very noisy due to the Piano Bar below. We were over the Lanai; the only drawback here is that passengers can look up at you when you are on the balcony. I like to relax out there in my PJs and have a closer view to the water.

Cabin 6212
our Cabin 6212 was in a very quite location, view from balcony was wonderful although I did not like smelling cigarette smoke from the cabin next door and from the deck below. The size of our cabin was excellent for two people. We loved having the balcony and are so happy we paid the extra to get one. We also kike being in the front of the ship and the 6th floor was perfect in between every thing..
