I can't say enough about the attentive cabin steward we had. While I expected twice-daily cabin service & our nightly towel animal, I didn't expect him to keep our ice bucket filled so that we had our water & beer (pre-purchased from Carnival) cold & waiting for us. And the steward even decorated our mirror for my roommate's birthday. She was tickled & it just added to the fun.
Cabin was clean & the beds comfortable. I missed having a clothesline in the shower area. Not sure if that was just our room, or this ship. I'd gotten spoiled with a clothesline in the bathroom of every other Carnival cruise I've taken. Read entire member review >>
Plenty of room with king layout. Lots of closet space. Window could have been cleaner but we didn't stay here but to sleep and shower. Hot water is very hot! Check before hopping in. The mirror on the medicine cabinet showed it's age and stuck but still worked.
I felt that it was kept clean having service twice a day. Read entire member review >>
More spacious than the cabin we just had on Royal Caribbean. This cabin was a bit dated, but the shower was a NORMAL size. :-) We had no issues with plumbing, just be aware and pay attention to the scalding warnings posted for the hot water....it is HOT! There are NO HAIRDRYERS and only one outlet in the room, which is fine for a couple, but might be a challenge if you have 3/4 females staying in a cabin. Steward was awesome and the room was always spotlessly cleaned, towels replaced twice a day. Read entire member review >>
Near an elevator corridor, and the stairs next to them take you up one flight to your dining room and two flights to the Lido deck, where almost everything is happening. A HUGE advantage to choosing your cabin by booking directly through Carnival. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was comfortable but very small. The water pressure in our shower was very weak and the cold water had to be turned on all the way and hot water could only be just barely turned on or it was way too hot. Read entire member review >>
The carpet in our stateroom was sticky and dirty, and there was evidence of residue that had dripped down the walls and had not been properly cleaned. My wife had to put clean towels down so that the children could walk barefooted on the floor without sticking to the carpet. In all honesty, the condition of the room would easily compare to a Motel 6 or other low quality motel. Read entire member review >>
Normal sized outside view. Had an actual full sized shower a definite plus considering some of the showers we have experienced on some of the newer ships. Bed were comfortable and always a nightly surprise of out of the ordinary towel animals. Just another example of the great service given by our room steward I wish I could remember his name as he did ours. It was something like Pratka. Read entire member review >>
The good: Nice size for a bargain. Big enough bathroom, great shower. Nice window.The bad: Smelled like food garbage after 10pm, but you could air it out by opening the door. COLD!!!!!!!!!I wrote a longer review in the forums. Read entire member review >>
Enjoyed the location of our cabin.. could it use a little updating and maintenance - Yes.. but the bathroom and shower were a nice size , the air was cool and it was clean.. Read entire member review >>
I had heard the there is a lot of noise in the hallways on Carnival and this may indeed be true, but not for me on this ship. I selected my cabin knowing what I do know by what was above, below and around me and my cabin was pretty quiet. Read entire member review >>
The low expectations were realized in the condition of the ship and the caliber of our ocean view stateroom. While certainly clean and functional, aside from the bedding which was quite comfortable, the room and halls were very utilitarian and not very inviting. The service however was very good from our steward and we were met everywhere on the ship by excellent service and broad smiles. Read entire member review >>
