We had a balcony, not sure what category. Cabin was good, bed so comfortable! Service was very good. I did call my room steward, but he never returned my call or came to my room.

Because they took the extended balcony cabin away I was forced to store my scooter in the shower while in the cabin .. There wasn't enough room on the balcony we had nor was there enough room to keep it in the cabin itself .. So every night we had to move the scooter out of the shower and move it into the cabin blocking me from moving around in the cabin until my husband was done in the shower and vise versa and I took a shower

We were a balcony cabin mid-ship just under the Lido where you entered the buffet. There was a little noise during the day but not bad at all at night. It was nice having the stairs up to the Lido so close to either get a drink from the drink station that was right there or head out to the pool area.

Cabin: This was our first experience with a balcony cabin as we took advantage of the balcony guarantee specials. We are very frugal and always book inside and this time, because of the early saver discounts we received we actually paid less for the balcony cabin than we had originally booked our inside cabin for and we had a $258 OBC. We loved our balcony cabin. It was 6th deck mid-ship on the starboard side. The cabin was very spacious and I really like all of the extra storage. That being said, we will be booking our next cruise within the next couple of weeks and we will go back to an inside cabin, hope for price drops, and hopefully work our way up to a balcony, but if we don't get a balcony, it's not a big deal to us.

Great cabin. Didn't use the balcony much except for some photos and to have a quick look, since smoking not allowed there anymore.

The cabins are standard for the industry. No surprises here. Bring your power strip because cabins only have one outlet (not two together - just one).

Magnificent Splendor Tripper Madison
Room for 3, two singles made up into king and a convertible sofa bed. Clean and well maintained. Bedding was white and gold. Most of the room was pink but more of the salmon color than pink. Artwork was tasteful. Bathroom was sufficient, green tones, with a shower, toilet and adequate vanity, and plenty of light. Three closets and ample drawer space. Included a stocked fridge, robes and beach towels. Room steward did a great job. Towel animals, chocolates, and turn down service nightly. Balcony contained 2 chairs and a small table. Room also had a coffee table and a vanity stool, as well as a safe.

We loved having a balcony to enjoy some quiet privacy on the ocean! There were three adults in our room but we never felt crowded. I would choose this room again.

8354 is near the very busy stairs from the Lido pool area. The noise was pretty high at times. You can also hear the rumble of carts on the deck above. It was our first balcony cabin and we won't sail again without one.

The cabin had a lot of vibrations. We didn't hear any thing from the lounge below us. Balcony had 2 chairs and table, and a lounger. Didn't like the double doors. There is a door to the cabin and one to get to the hallway for our cabin and the corner cabin.

6225
Cabin 6225 is over a corner of the showroom. You can slightly hear during the shows in the bathroom, but not at all in the main part of the cabin. I was listening very closely and could not hear anything from the showroom. Outside of the cabin in the hallway, you could hear. Whatever they did to dampen the sound in the cabin really works. There is noticeably more motion being this far forward when the seas were a bit rougher.

Carnival Splender dissapointed cruiser
Cabin 7358 was nice, plenty of room for storage. I wish the balcony door was not so heavy though, I am sure it needs to be. Interior rooms for 4, need to be very warned they are very small and no room to eat at all in your cabin, especially for 4 people.

Lots of storage space. Found the cabin to be very noisy, both outside noise from adjacent balconies and noise from the hallway. I believe there is a service kitchen on the other side of the hallway and this generated a lot of noise.

The closet was small but the balcony is the way to go!! We were on the 8th floor midship. They had nice little toiletries in the bathroom - like toothpaste sample, razor, etc. The TV wasn't very good and the volume kept turning up and then down.

7339 is located by the elevator and diagonally across from a guest laundry room. Very convenient but occasional noise from the hallway and the dryers. It usually dies down at night.

Cabin 8305 is directly under one of the Lido bars. That said, you heard nothing from the activities above unless you were on the veranda. Loved the layout as stated in my review. It is nearly half way between two elevators - a great location as one brings you to the lobby or front of Lido, the other brings you to front of the buffet on Lido. Loved it!

Cabin 6271 was very conveniently located, but very near the atrium elevator/stair lobby, so was at times noisy from people gathered at the elevators.

6226
My balcony stateroom (Category 8A) was on the Upper Deck, cabin 6226. It was close to the bow and on the 6th deck. The room was quite large (approx. 220 sq. ft.), very bright with a wall of glass overlooking the balcony, and could easily sleep 4 people. It had a very comfortable king-sized bed (two twin beds pushed together) with lovely linens, etc. There was a sofa that converted into a single bed and also a "Pullman" bed secreted in the ceiling. There was plenty of closet and storage space. The bathroom was a decent size (shower only; no tub) with lots of room to put away toiletries, etc. The towels were plush and the bathrobe was very comfortable. There was a desk/vanity and chair, a flat screen tv and a refrigerator. There was only one electrical outlet in the room (above the desk) and one outlet in the bathroom (up high near the ceiling). There was a hairdryer in the top drawer of the desk/vanity that worked quite well. All in all, it was a very comfortable room. My only concern with the cabin was the noise from the Spectacular Lounge located directly below it. The sound-proofing was mostly non-existent, and so I heard all the rehearsals during the daytime, and also the late show at 10:30 pm each evening. It was very loud; so if you book this cabin, be prepared to live with the noise level.
