We "upgraded" to an ocean view room. The problem was that our window was so dirty that we could barely see out of it. The room was decent but we had to call for maintenance a couple of times. One time because the water in the bathroom would only come out on extreme hot. It would not cool down. They had to change the entire fixture in the bathroom so cold water would work. The second issue was the air conditioner. It was hot in our room. When the maintenance supervisor came to check the room it was 88 degrees and would not cool off. They repaired that as well.

This cabin had a strange configuration, not typical for an oceanview. The step up into the bathroom was unusually high. just the one little glass shelf under the mirror. Shower area was adequate/ Read entire member review >>
I have no idea what Ocean View 6B means, but we did have an Ocean View cabin. It was very small. There were three women in our cabin. We are good friends, so we put up with the smallness of it. The toilet was difficult to flush, sometimes it would not flush at all. The shower water spilled all over the bathroom floor most of the time. But the mattresses and pillows were great. A comfy chair would have been nice. Read entire member review >>
Appreciated the flat screen TV and the updated sink in the bath. Bed was crazy uncomfortable and hard and the "King" configuration kept sliding apart. In 4 other cruises, we never had that happen. Ship definitely feels worn and past it's prime. Read entire member review >>
Far too small for 4 people. Crammed extra beds in, giving us no floor space. Carnival should have moved the bedside tables and chair out to give more space. TV tiny. air con very loud. dressing gowns both had holes in them. bathroom fine. cabin clean. not enough towels for 4 people. Read entire member review >>
Very nice and clean! We asked for our beds to be put together to give us more space, and while it was not done when we boarded, our steward made sure it was taken care of for us asap. With everything put away and luggage under the bed we had tons of room.
The bathroom was spacious and SUPER clean, I was impressed! We had no issues with plumbing or anything being broken or going awry. I wish the window would have been cleaner, but our view was spectacular so I had nothing really to complain about! Read entire member review >>
Cabin was small but serviceable. No refrigerator or hair dryer, but the latter was delivered on request. The cabin steward provided a bucket of ice every day as we requested. There was ample storage and a nice sized window. Read entire member review >>
We chose an oceanview and I was pleasantly surprised how nice it was. Even the bathroom was better than expected. Our porter was gracious and wonderful --- I asked for ice once and every time we came to the room, we had a full ice bucket! Noise level is not great --- but for the most part, we had a good stay in our room. The boat was clean and all of the staff were extremely attentive and helpful. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was small but functional. The room attendant did not provide any service the first night. The second night saw no breakfast door card and a dirty toilet that had not been cleaned. Upon calling to politely request cleaning the toilet during turn down I was rebuked and challenged instead of politely acknowledged. The list goes on all pointing to lack of attention to detail and unfriendly staff. Sad. Read entire member review >>
Great Room for 3 travelers! Lots of room to move around, and bunk was more comfortable than expected. Room steward put the bunk up and down as if he read our minds. It has a lock of some sort on it, so he pretty much has to do it. When the bunk is up, it is flat against a side wall, this also gives more headroom for sleeping. Perfect location on the ship.

M269 OV Aft, nice view, but right by the crew rooms. A bit noisey during the day, but quiet at night. Room was older and carpet showed some wear. Bathroom was clean. Would choose this room and location again. Read entire member review >>
Nice location on the Rivera deck, nice view in R69 pretty quiet except for the occasional kid running down the hallway, the only issue was I had to get a ship's blow dry because mine wouldn't plug in .. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was a little cramped for three people, but was beautiful, and set up nicely. I liked that they had an area in the bathroom and a seperate mirror and table in the room, for multiple people to get ready. Read entire member review >>
