Stateroom has carpeting, ample drawer and closet space, private facilities (shower, basin and toilet), telephone and color television showing first-run films. Our SuperLiners all feature staterooms above ocean level for a more comfortable cruise.
We were on the 8th deck, cabin 8350. I worried about noises from the Lido deck only one deck above, but we could not hear the mega-deck partiers or music. We did hear the staff moving the deck chairs, but it did not keep me awake at night. The location of our cabin was great. Elevator around the corner and mid ship. Easy walk to either end. The room was nice and clean. Our cabin steward, Eddie, was terrific and very accommodating. He was able to provide us with a fan because our cabin was very hot, too hot. Even though we had the AC on the coolest setting it was 74 degrees and no air circulating. The fan made the difference. The balcony seemed short and I wish it had been deeper. There was the lido deck overhang that helped to provide shade and did not obstruct the view. We were with friends in cabin 8352 and had requested they unlock the balcony partition. We didn't realize this would be in front of the door so we had to push it out of the way each time we went to our balcony. Carnival has started a new program where you choose morning or afternoon cabin service. There is a choice of both which we selected. After seeing all of the rooms our cabin steward attended, we tipped extra. Read entire member review >>
I loved our room. There was some noise during the night but not really loud or constant...just here and there. It was nice to have the balcony and see the ocean the whole trip. I would want a balcony now for every cruise. Read entire member review >>
Balcony room on deck 8 - although below Lido buffet restaurant, we did not find it noisy. We were 3 adults in the room and although small, it was very functional and worked well for us. We brought an adapter so we could use the international outlet in the bathroom and an extension cord for the main stateroom because there is only one outlet in the whole room. Room service of coffee and juice each morning was a very nice way to start the day. We also brought a bungee cord so we could keep the door to the balcony open from time to time, was very nice to have the sea air in our room sometimes. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was great and kept absolutely spotless by our steward Jerry, the standard of servicing was exceptional. Absolutely loads of storage for everything you will need, comfortable and spacious and so glad to have the balcony too, it didn't seem cramped in any way. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was comfortable and reasonably roomy, as was the bathroom. I really appreciated the twice-daily servicing, we always had clean dry towels when needed. Wish the door to the balcony was a slider, so we could leave it open and not hear them slamming shut all the time. The most-needed improvement would be to have more than ONE electrical outlet, which isn't really adequate for keeping multiple devices and camera batteries charged. (Technically, there are two, if you bring a European plug adaptor to use the other one.) Read entire member review >>
The room was pretty much exactly like what we had on the Carnival Magic and Dream with the exception that this room seemed slightly narrower than the other larger ships. Everything otherwise was pretty much standard. The balcony, bed, couch, vanity/counter, closets (3) and bathroom were all the exact same as all the other Carnival State Rooms. This was a great location close to forward elevators, not far from the buffet. Very quiet as we heard no noise from other cabins - this cabin was not an adjoining cabin. The only noise we heard was from unruly children running in the hall way like a heard of elephants. Service from our Steward was great and room service was right on time every time.

Room was great and size was fine, especially after spending the previous few days in a NY hotel. The glass on the balcony was cleaned often. If you're sailing out of NY, the Starboard side is the side you might want as you are will pass the Statue of Liberty when starting your cruise. Read entire member review >>
This cabin is a little forward of midship. It was nicely appointed. Plenty of closet space. Drawers are a little shallow, but we've found this on most cruise ships. This has a nice sleeper sofa between the bathroom wall and the bed. There is a small nightstand on each side of the bed, with a fixed light on it. I have a C-Pap machine for my sleep apnea and I had to set it on the sofa instead of the night stand, as there just wasn't room enough. The closets are on your right, as you enter the room, there are 3 doors, then a vanity counter that runs for about 7 or 8 ft. Lighted mirrors above it. There is a flat screen tv mounted on the wall. The door to the balcony opens out and is a very substantial door (heavy).The room was very clean and had the feel that it had recently been redone.The bathroom had a molded sink to the right, as you entered. A shower to your left and the toilet next to it.The shower has a shower gel and shampoo dispenser, filled and waiting. You could go without bringing those things to save some space. There were other amenities in the bathroom also. Like lotions, tooth paste, soaps, etc.The only complaint I'd have with this room is there is some sort of ventilation unit that is on the Lido Deck, just above the room, so we had that kind of a droning sound all the time, which did help in getting to sleep at night and was probably better than the party noises on the rest of the Lido Deck.I would get this room again, if I had to.

Our cabin was 1079 on the Panaroma deck 10. It was a standard balcony and nice but we did hear some noise above at 6 AM every morning as they were setting up deck chairs. The noise lasted for about half an hour. Read entire member review >>
The cabin is in a great location because it has cabins above, below and across the hall, thus very quiet. Also, walk forward a short distance and you are on one of the forward observation decks. Walk to the rear and you are next to the dome covered pool. Keep walking aft and you come to the buffet. Thus is is quiet and near the action. It only sleeps two. The two balcony cabins on either side of it sleep three. Read entire member review >>
Since we had six people (three adults, two gradeschoolers, and a toddler), we had to get two rooms. The rooms were spacious and very clean and upscale. Nothing in the room suggested oldness or disrepair. The stewards were wonderful--very accommodating and smiled all the time (despite their hard, hard job. They have to do everything on that ship from room cleaning, to cleaning the rest of the ship, staffing the dining halls, doing safety drills, etc.) The rooms had thermostats that worked quickly to get your room just how you wanted it depending on where you were. Since we were towards the front, there was a little extra rocking, but it wasn't unbearable. We only needed motion sickness medicine on the way back, and only for a little dizziness.

We had a balcony cabin category 8D midship. It was great, very clean, spacious, and in a great location to all the public areas. Would definitely book the same category next time. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 7262. Good size room. Plenty of closet space and drawer space. 6 shelves int he bathroom and a good size counter. Close to the forward elevators witch makes access to the showroom and the main atrium very easy. Not noisy and pretty smooth ride. Read entire member review >>
Very small, noisy halls, people talking, kids running. Balcony was nice...Great Views. Barely enough room for 2 people's clothes. BOOK EARLY AND GET HANDICAP ROOM IF YOU TO TAKE WHEEL CHAIR OR SCOOTER. No room in room to store and hard to get through door. I wasn't planning on taking scooter but was able to keep on Balcony. Can hear the singing FROM LOUNGE AND SHOW ROOM. VERY CLOSE TO GLASS ELEVATORS. WOULDN'T RECOMMEND IF NOISE BOTHERS YOU, HANDY FOR 11 CLOSE BY ELEVATORS. I DIDN'T MIND BECAUSE I WAS HAPPY TO BE CLOSE TO THE ELEVATORS DUE TO MY SORE FOOT. Read entire member review >>
Great Balcony, but had issues with neighbors regarding smoking! Need to change policies a little to accomodate both non-smokers, and smokers! Just don't smoke on balconies, problem solved! Read entire member review >>
noisy location! close to door that leads to out to forward viewing area and door would SLAM shut VERY, VERY loud, and also noise/vibration from thrusters could be heard/felt! Read entire member review >>
Mentioned above, but we had to hunt down our estate steward in order to meet him. Our sheets never were changed, though they were supposed to be at least once during the cruise. There was an obvious nail polish stain on my partner's sheets that was there the entire time. Read entire member review >>
8332 - Typical Carnival Balcony room. Small but nicely appointed, everything worked, nice balcony for two (no more). Being one deck below the Lido it was not the absolute quietest room, but it did not bother us at all. Read entire member review >>
Noisy...under the Lido deck (Verandah) and heard a lot of chairs being moved, dishes being washed, glasses being stacked, etc. It was irritating when it happened at 5:00am when we were on vacation. Read entire member review >>
