A spacious room, that includes VIP check-in during embarkation. All staterooms have carpeting, ample drawer and closet space, private facilities (shower, basin and toilet), telephone and color television showing first-run films.
Perfectly adequate cabin, in poor mechanical shape. The hydraulic door closer on the balcony door had failed some months previously, but had not been replaced until we complained. There was a crust of dried hydraulic oil on the door and window, and the heavy closure springs, needed for this marine application, created a personal injury hazard. Once we file a strongly-worded complaint, it was replaced quickly. Should not have required a passenger complaint.
Having the toilet out of service for a morning was inconvenient, to say the least. Read entire member review >>
wouldn't have given my dog a bath using the tubs jets
ran water in the sink one day and it was dirty...literally looked like a mud puddle
fridge worked well
plenty of storage
balcony door barely worked Read entire member review >>
We stayed in a grand suite. The size was fantastic...came with a nice private balcony with 4 chairs. Also had a sectional sofa that rolls out to another queen bed. There is a minifridge, a tub (only tub I've ever had on a cruise ship!), a walkin closet, and 2 electrical outlets. The tub is also a jetted tub. The room was the highlight of the cruise.

Plenty of room. Decor is dark, though. Bathroom shows most wear and tear, but there is some throughout (drawers sticking; couch sagged; balcony teak mildewed.) Actually plenty of electrical outlets. Read entire member review >>
Beds were very hard as mentioned above: First night, after my eldest son all of 6'4 was attempting to pull out the sofa sleeper in the GS Suite we called room service to make sure we wouldn't damage anything, our response was after 9:00pm they couldn't assist, we would need to wait until tomorrow. Here's the clincher, my sons are 6'2 and 6'4 while going on the balcony the light fixer fell from the ceiling, it was low enough and heavy enough to have hit one of them in the skull, which could have sent him overboard, myself included. 48 hours after reporting this issue the fixture was seated back in the ceiling still un-secure. I told my sons to stay off the balcony.Service was not good at all due to what I mentioned above. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was a decent size but was very tired and not very clean. The beds were so hard we could not sleep. I did not expect this in the Grand Suite. We had been in an ocean view before and the beds were bad but this was a surprise that Grand Suite beds were just as bad. I ended up on the vinyl couch to get a little sleep. The really bad part was the raw sewage smell which was so strong that it overwhelmed the room when we tried to step out onto the balcony. Bad smells even seeped through the air conditioning vents. It was not good. I can still smell the sewage which if you have ever smelled a bad diaper you have a good idea what it was like. Read entire member review >>
Our room was the largest that we could get. We had 4 adult women and we never felt crowded. We had 2 twin beds and a sofa that folded out into a queen bed. I would have liked more storage for clothing and more outlets for our abundance of flat irons, hair dryers, phone chargers, etc. Of course the logistics of 4 women and one bathroom goes without saying. The room felt dated with mirrored walls and pink ceiling, but for us it just added to the swanky, party feel of our cruise. Read entire member review >>
The suite is a bit smaller than a regular hotel room. They have a balcony that honestly made the trip! The bed can be configured into two twins or a king. The couch pulls out and compared to the other rooms, the suite has decent space. Worth the money, sure. our steward Semadi rocked! Read entire member review >>
Paradise GS U97 - Great cabin. Lots of room , King Bed , Sofa area , large bathroom with tub , large balcony. Located midship almost directly between center elevator banks , so easy access to both ends of ships Read entire member review >>
Grand suite has a full walk-in closet, king size bed, jacuzzi tub (not big enough for 2), big balcony and living room area with an "L" shaped sectional sofa. Book a veranda room and upgrade to the Grand Suite for an excellent bargain. Read entire member review >>
Nice sized suite, Ventilation wasn't the best, could smell smokers next door when inside. Room was either hot or cold had a hard time regulating the air. For a suite it's was just OK. Bathroom showed considerable wear on the fixtures and floor. Same with the balcony. Bed wasn't the most comfortable. Would have expected more out of a suite. Read entire member review >>
great room, hallway very quiet, a few spots on carpets but over all very nice and accommodating cabin U90 and U88 The closets was a plus and very roomy overall. balcony was a plus and wonderful especially for some down time and just to get away. Read entire member review >>
On this class of Carnival ship for such a long sailing (14-days) it was great to have the added space of the Grand Suite. The room, balcony, closet space, and bathroom are all oversized for a ship of this age. While this ship had very few balconies (or suites) - those with interior and/or ocean view staterooms all seems to have great sailing as well, and that is the bottom line for any sailing.
