We thought mid-ship, near the top was a great location. While the location was great, we didn't think about the Lido Deck above. We were near the end of the pool area and all night we heard what I first thought was thunder, but there weren't any clouds. The noise was furniture being moved and I guess carts being rolled back and forth across the floor. On the last two nights returning to port, the water was quite choppy with swells. The fist night of rough water created a lot of rocking and rolling but the last night was terrible. We returned to port at midnight rather than 6 am due to 2 passenger emergencies, which was not a problem, but the extra speed in the rough water made for an uncomfortable night, not to mention the squeek in the wall everytime we hit a wave. The walls were certainly not soundproof. Our neighbors had a terrible argument on the last night and we could hear and understand every word that they said. Read entire member review >>
We were in cabin 2207, all the way forward, port side. It was VERY noisy coming into port, leaving port & docking. We were directly under the show theatre but weren't bothered by any noise there. Guest cabins were directly under us. It's definitely not a location I would choose again. Read entire member review >>
10231: A four-berth cabin which was adequate for our family of four (10yo and 12yo on the pullman beds). The location was excellent - no downsides and good access to the facilities we regularly used. Read entire member review >>
1210 is a 1A cabin all the forward on Deck 1. It's very roomy for one person. There's a bed and a sofa, a small table and a vanity seat that can be used as a foot stool. There are 2 portholes with a large shelf area. Great for storing all the towel animals. The bathroom is Carnival standard, as are the closets and vanity area. There is a number combination safe and interactive flat screen tv. The only downside is if you are not a morning person. On port days you are woken up by the noise and movement of the ship docking. Otherwise, it's a very quiet cabin. Read entire member review >>
Our two cabins were 2203 and 2204. I should not expect much because these are the cheapest. The things you put in the bathroom are great, especially the toothpaste, shampoo and razor. Service great. We could not sleep because there was something like a washing machine spinner or generator coming from below. I also could not sleep on with my husband because there was only two single beds. I could not see the T.V., because it was in his corner of the room. It was really tiny. I felt we did not need our rooms cleaned so often so I tried to give the poor guy a rest for 3 days. He was great. There was lots of space for our clothes but the pictures on the wall were awful. Why not put Van Gogh prints or something which is very popular and colourful.

My porthole stateroom (Category 1A) was on Deck 2, cabin 2212. It was close to the bow and the cabin was much larger than a regular inside cabin but not quite as large as a balcony cabin (approx. 160 sq. ft.), bright with 2 large porthole windows and could easily sleep 2 people. It had a very comfortable single-sized bed with lovely linens, etc. There was a sofa that converted into a single bed which was a treat - most 1A cabins only have a chair to sit on, no sofa. There was plenty of closet and storage space. The bathroom was a decent size (shower only; no tub) with lots of room to put away toiletries, etc. The towels were plush and the bathrobe was very comfortable. There was a desk/vanity and chair, a flat screen tv and a refrigerator. There were two electrical outlets in the room (above the desk) and one outlet in the bathroom (up high near the ceiling). There was a hairdryer in the top drawer of the desk/vanity that worked quite well. The cabin was quiet except for the early mornings when we were docking and then I would wake up to the sound of the thrusters and the ropes being lowered. Read entire member review >>
