the cabin was nice and roomy. The room service was fine. The bathroom was certainly acceptable though the Jacuzzi tub did not work due to the tub not holding water.

Comfortable, bed's and pillows were nice. Room creaked a lot and when wind blew in a certain direction the balcony door whistled.

Cabin 7258
Sep 2016
We were in room 7258, an extended balcony cabin. the cabin was standard Carnival balcony size, which is sufficiently roomy. The balcony was wonderful in that it was about two and half to three size the normal balcony. The room showed its age in terms of wear and tear. The toilet seat was not bolted down on one side and would come up and move. That was fixed after contacting guest services. When we arrived in the room I turned the thermostat all the way down as I need it cool to sleep. After 40 hours at that level and a difficult hot night, I contacted guest services as well as my room steward and complained that something was not working right as the room was not getting cool. First one guy came in to check it and said it was 73 degrees. i told him I needed it cooler. he said they only go as low as 70. I said, "fine, get it to 70". The next day a technician arrived early in the morning and checked it again. He said it was at 71.9. He checked everything out and did another reading. he said it was now at 71.2 and everything was working properly. There was nothing more he could do. This is the first time I have had this issue with any ship, including Carnival, but apparently nothing could be done. So I started sleeping at night with a washrag soaked in ice water on my head.

Small, old, falling apart, hideous.

Typical Carnival cabin. Well maintained by Roderick. It did have some of the Azipod Shimmy, but no rattling of the cabinets or our belongings, just the feeling of shimmying when on the bed or sofa. I found it similar to sleeping on a train, though my light-sleeper husband didn't like it.

Cabin was decently sized, and had a lot of storage space. The extended balcony wasn't that much better than the standard balcony. The one complaint I had, was the overhang on the balcony. Deck 9 extends over the balcony, and partial blocks the view. It's not bad, but I wish it wasn't there.

Cabin was clean. Nice comfy bedding. Beds very hard and thin. Nice extended balcony, but you can't look out and see the length of the entire ship as there are other rooms blocking it.

The cabin was your standard extended-balcony cabin. Our steward was very attentive and usually had the room serviced while we were at breakfast or shortly after then. In the evening, it was serviced upon our return from breakfast. The cabin location was under the Lido deck but we never heard chairs or noise from above. We were just a short walk up the stairs or the elevator to the Lido dining and other areas.

This was a great cabin. Just a bit down the hall with easy access to the elevators. No real noise from the hallway or anything, a bit from the lido and of course other cruisers closing their balcony, but that's just normal stuff.

What just happened? By: Greselda
We loved this cabin! It was 7258 and it is an extended balcony cabin. The cabin itself is the same size as a regular balcony cabin, including a couch, however, the extended balcony is very long, accomodating 2 loungers and 2 chairs and is awesome! We would book this one again in a heartbeat.

Best Cruise Ever By: bigmoromom
this is an extended balcony amidships. Typical Carnival balcony stateroom. Plenty of storage and room. We weren't cramped at all, even with the long itinerary and two large old people.

Beautiful Alaska By: zetaome
This was our first time sailing in a balcony cabin, and while it was spacious, the location of the beds made it seem a bit tiny! There was very little room between the two beds! I did enjoy having a sofa in the room and there was more than enough storage for all of things. The balcony had two chairs - one that could recline slightly and a small table. It was quite nice. The room itself was very clean and well-kept and super quiet. The only time I ever heard the neighbours was when we were on the balcony. Inside the room, all was quiet!

We had a mid-ship extended balcony, but honestly we were too far from the elevators.

Consider getting a balcony cabin. The views are wonderful and this cabin was high on the ship which made getting around very easy.

Cabin: We had an extended deck balcony 7227. James, our cabin steward, did a fine job keeping the room clean and well stocked. The only issue with the cabin is that it was cold the first and the last sea day. I asked the cabin steward what we can do about it and he offered blankets. He said there was no heat and I believe him. My wife likes a warm room so I put towels in the air conditioning vents to reduce the breeze. I also used a piece of tape to hold the hair dryer switch to the on position. I would run the hair dryer every so often to help warm up the room.

This cabin is for handicapped people. We got it last minute. We wanted it for its balcony that was three times as long as the normal ones! The cabin is also larger and the restroom was gigantic compared to normal ones. This cabin is directly underneath a galley so be prepared to hear bangs and other loud noises as early as 4AM! We complained but it didn't make a difference. Usually there is a lot of sunshine coming into the cabin. This cabin has less sunshine because the balcony door is not in front of the bed (it is in front of the restroom).

We had an 8K (extended balcony) mid ship on Deck 7 Starboard side. It was a great location: close to the elevator, the buffet and it was quiet. Cabin was spacious with lots of closet space and a good sized bathroom. Bathrobes were included. Bed was very comfortable.

Great cabin, plenty of space for two adults, and a small child with the sleep sofa. Plenty of closet space, and sofa has two drawers underneath (contains linens and blankets for sleep sofa but can be removed by Steward if needed). Comfy beds, and A/C worked great. Balcony cannot see straight down to the pier, but can see all sites pulling in and out of port, etc. Two chairs and small table on balcony. Bathroom clean, and as to be expected size. No noise from crew or neighbors, and great location to get around ship or to and from elevators.

Typical cabin interior - fine for our needs. Extended balcony was nice but not necessarily worth extra cost to us.

Cabin 8234
Mar 2012
The room itself was half awesome and half a problem. My review might not help you since it seemed we got a jack of all trades kind of room. Giant bathroom for a handicapped person, but the bed was like two fancy cots put together. The pillows were probably real nice if you sleep on your back, but I sleep on my side and literally felt kind of choked trying to use it. Usually when four pillows are in a hotel bed, 2 are soft and 2 are firm, but these were all basketball shaped marshmallows. We saw an advertisement on the TV that the towels, and bathrobes were for sale and we were considering it. But then the mattresses and bedding were for sale too and we both burst out laughing. The TV itself also was like someone had the turned the brightness all the way down and there was no way to fix that. Not that we watched much TV, but some people might like to not miss shows or feel at home for a night. But the balcony is where we spent most of our time in our room, because what we got was exactly what we wanted there.

Cabin 7193
May 2011
Our cabin was 7193. Mid ship on starboard side. It is not huge but there is plenty of room. There were 2 closets and a third with shelves. The room was clean and the bathroom was clean also. I highly recommend the extended deck - it is great when you want some peace and quiet rather than going up on the public decks. Our room steward Greg was very attentive and saw to our needs very efficiently.

NEW YEAR'S MIRACLE! By: dcruisers
Cabin 8184 has an extended balcony one floor down from the Lido deck. It is under midship pool and near elevators. We loved being by the elevators but don't pick this area due to noise above!

8156. Good cabin. Bathroom is on the small side. Comfortable beds, decent sized balcony, plenty of storage. Outside wall creaked at night with the wind and motion of the ship. You can hear the deck furniture being set up above you. Level 7 would be a better option.

Our cabin was quiet, easily accessible to all the happenings. The balcony is considered premium and it was significantly larger than the standard balcony.
