Everyday we would get our towels shaped like an animal. They looked gorgeous. Our cabins were a good size. Plenty of place to put away luggage and clothes. They provided liquid soap and shampoo. (no conditioner, so pack some) Really nice quality and smell. Our steward was a lovely man and he was happy to fulfil any request e.g. more pillows, blanket etc. The window view was great to watch the waves. Read entire member review >>
Paid for an Inside Guarantee, was given an upgrade to Ocean View so very happy. Located Aft, bottom passenger deck, expected it to be noisy but it was very quiet (and we luckily had quiet neighbours). Would recommend this cabin. Read entire member review >>
We were initially worried about the noise level of this cabin because this cabin is near the Galley and Disco nightclub. We can not hear any noise or smell anything from the Galley, only occasionally bump into some chefs. We can not hear any noise from the nightclub for most nights, only 1 or 2 nights around midnight we can hear the thumping when they have a party night, but the noise doesn't bother me (I'm a light sleeper) because those nights are on the ports night which I was too tired to hear anything after spending all day have fun at the port. The only downside of this cabin was that it is very dusty, I saw the room steward vaccum cleaned the edges but maybe those dust are too old that it just stuck there. The beds are comfy and the pillows are good too. My kids loved the sofa bed and bunk bed too. There were plenty of storage area and it's enough room for us to put 2 big luggages, 2 hand carries and 2 backpacks. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was good, however in the evenings from 7pm until midnight it was extremely noisy with loud music from the Red Frog pub that must have been located directly above. Read entire member review >>
Terribly noisy cabin. Loud music until 1am most nights. The Red Frog Pub directly upstairs was put in only recently without sound insulation in the floor and you can hear all the words to the band inside the cabin, and the heavy bar stools being dragged on the floor everytime someone shifts theirs directly above.

My cabin was lovely. Plenty of room with an ensuite. Comfortable bed. Plenty of room in the wardrobes. Different little towel animal everyday. And my Steward was absolutely fantastic. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was OK but very dated. The towels were grey and worn and we only received one cake of soap for two persons for 8 days of cruising. The overall impression of the cabin was that it was not very clean. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was on lowest deck which we thought was good as it meant we experienced less roll of the ship and it was quiet.There was enough storage although nowhere to put suitcases.Bathroom was compact however functional, good water pressure in shower.Only one power point in the whole cabin and cant take double adaptor as just above bench.

Good location,quiet outside cabin [although the rattles & squeaks from the ceiling inside were a bit annoying.The size was good & plenty of hanging space.Bathroom was ok,shower had good pressure & constant water temperature. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was standard Ocean view cabin in the middle of the ship. Only a few doors from center elevator, but did not experience any noise from people. Overall a very nice cabin Read entire member review >>
Good location. Clean and well maintained. No problems.
TV set old and quality of display poor. Free TV programmes poor. Passengers should not have to pay to see decent, modern programmes.
Ships progress chart and information displayed on the TV could have been done better by kindergarten children. No weather info., present or forecast, either on the TV or in the "Fun Times" daily publication.
Carnival obviously knows little about good communication. Read entire member review >>
We stayed in cabin 1251 and 1253. (Deck 1 of ship) These are ocean view staterooms with two twin beds. The beds were very comfortable. I slept wonderfully. It was extremely quiet in these particular rooms! People say that rooms on the bottom of the ship are loud because of the engine, but this is not true. Carnival does an amazing job blocking all the sound. It's cool how you can have a dance club blasting music and energy and a dead silent room right below it. We loved having the ocean view. It enhances the experience - just the fact that your in your "hotel room" with the ocean right out the window! We loved just sitting on the windowsill watching the ocean. The bathroom was nice and clean. It worked very well for us. The room had tons of storage space! I don't think you will ever have to worry about not having enough. Read entire member review >>
Generally we stay in a Balcony but this time we stayed in an ocean view cabin and found it to be very nice. Our Room Steward was outstanding and the room was large enough with lot of room for our stuff. We was forward but not to close to the noise. Read entire member review >>
The Cabin was fine. We stayed in Room 1148 on the Riviera deck. The room was spacious and the bathroom was also spacious. Cupboard space was suitable although I always find that there is never really a good place to store ones suitcase when its unpacked on any cruise I have ever been on.
The noise level was fine although one night we were in rough waters and there was a constant banging against the side of the ship or so it appeared. I guess that is to be expected from time to time. Our room Steward was always there to be helpful and our room was always spotless. Read entire member review >>
Window view was good - close to water - Pilot boats and ramps for debarkation were really close to this room. Room was pretty large with couch/twin bed - which was harder than the regular beds. 3 large closets - one with shelves. A dressing table with 4 drawers - mainly for underwear/socks, etc. (there is a bible and hairdryer in the top drawer.) Several other small built-in cabinets & night stands had room for keeping cameras or whatever, just remember to check them before leaving. Safe and minibar/fridge came in handy, too. Room also had table and small stool - which was always in the way so we kept that under the dressing table. Only one outlet on the dressing table, so bring an extension cord for cell & cameral chargers and curling irons. Plenty of space in bathroom for toiletries, but bring your own conditioner and hand cream. Although cleaning supply room was just across from our room and staff gathered there often, we never heard any noise from them with the door closed. Read entire member review >>
