Nice, basic cabin. Balcony large enough for two reclining chairs along with a full recliner. Nice opportunities for private tanning. As usual, aft cabins are located in a very quiet area of the ship. Cabins located both above and below, so very quiet with no noise intrusions.

8465 is not a bad room. It does have some problems if you are a light sleeper. You are under the adult sun deck and they clean it with a machine at 3:00 in the morning. Then they starting putting out the deck chairs at 6:30 in the morning. After our neighbors starting complaining they moved it up to 7:00. They first try to tell us it was our fellow passengers moving the chairs across the deck at 6:30 am. My neighbor next door got up the next morning went up on deck and it was the Carnival Cruise people no passengers pulling the chairs across the deck so that reason couldn't work any longer.

If you are not a light sleeper it is a good room.

Cabin #8452 was the perfect cabin for us. We had an overhang so we had protection from the sun and since we were aft, there was no wind. It was a short walk to the stairs to go up one flight to the buffet or the aft pool. Very convenient. We would definitely recommend this cabin.

Fantastic huge deck. Small bathroom. Noise sometimes from the El Morocco lounge, especially on Karaoke nights-take ear plugs and you will be fine. Great storage. A long trek to some places, if you have any walking impairment or disability, think about making sure you are in the middle part of the vessel- I wish I had been.

Cabin 7438. Larger than normal room. Long balcony, but narrow and windy. Quiet. Easy access to anything aft.

What a splendor Azwolfe
Cabin 7449 at back of ship is very nice. It had plenty of room for one and I think two wouldn't be to bad. The balcony does get a litlle soot but not to bad. It is a quiet area not a lot of traffics. You do get a little more noise when the ship first takes off.

Not for Us Highbypass Turbofan
We had Aft Balcony...typical layout for Cabin...Bathrobe's in room were I've seen on any cruise ship. Good privacy from aft balcony. The only other passengers who could see you were other balcony passengers as the Lido deck hung in such a way that no one on the Lido deck could look down on you.

We got a great deal on an Aft Balcony room. It wasn't until after we had already booked that we came across several reviews for the exact cabin we had booked where we discovered it was directly above the Morrocan and suffered from quite a bit of noise from the sound system and vibrations from the base. I tried calling to see if we could switch, but the upcharge was more than I wanted to spend, so we decided to roll with it. It helped knowing this going in and I would recommend to Carnival that they have a disclaimer that goes with this cabin. It didn't end up being a problem for us because we went to the late shows and usually by the time we returned to our cabin, there was no more music from below. The rest of the time, the cabin was quiet and peaceful - with the exception of some loud guests one night. I think we would have been annoyed had we not known about this in advance. We LOVED LOVED LOVED our cabin! This was our first time with a balcony and I won't ever get anything else. We had a good amount of space and the balcony was nice sized. Having space to move around and the option of going on the balcony meant we could spend time in our room if wanted and actually enjoy it! The bathroom was more spacious than the last cruise we took. While the bathrooms are never huge on cruise ships, there was room for both of us to put our toiletries. I did have trouble getting hot water the first night - I'm not sure how the system works so maybe everyone was taking showers at the same time. It was better after that. We propped open our balcony door several nights - it was great to sleep to the sound of the ocean. We did get a fair amount of boat motion in our room on a few nights. The water was a bit choppy, but we didn't mind it - I just mention it because someone else might have an issue.

Great balcony, good closet space, worth the money. Above a bar so the first few night you must get used to noise as you go to sleep.

Great views, reduced storage space and room to move in the cabin because of the enlarged balcony. Bathrooms seemed to be smaller, also.

Quiet. Balcony divider didn't totally come down between us and our family in 7442. Angled dividers so your neighbors can see in. Didn't feel too much motion.

This cabin (6491) is directly above the stage in Morocco Lounge and the Cool Deck Bar, if you like to go to bed early do not get this room. The speakers to the Band are on the ceiling, so pretty much on your floor under your bed and when the band was playing or kareoki going on it got pretty loud in the room. The cabin next door also had the same problem. The music eventually ends around 12:30 then you can sleep.
