Our cabin was fine for the two of us. It was smallish, but we expected that and didn't plan to spend much time there except when we were sleeping. It was clean when we arrived and our steward, Budi, ensured that it remained that way each day. He antipicated our needs and was super friendly. Wish he could come home with us!

We were put on a waiting list & was called the day before (14 Dec) that a cabin opened up. Of course this was an interior cabin. We did not decide straight away on taking the cabin. We looked at the floor plan to make sure it fit our needs. We called Carnival & reserved our sailing. We both have a requirement that having a night stand makes life much easier. The floor plan showed that it the cabin has two night stands. Oh, the cabin number is 7304. When we got onboard of course there was not two nightstands. Actually no night stands, for the inboard side of the bed there was the shelf. Not cool. We had to figure something out for our needs. Then we attempted to use magnets to route an extension cord & the first time since we began cruising the bulkheads were not metal. Again had to devise another way around this.
I need to mention the lack of cleanliness of our cabin. There were broken hangers in one of the closets. Something on the one extra take was sticky. Carnival no longer does a nightly turn down service. So your room only gets attention once per day. The bathroom had cracks & chips in the sink the mirror/medicine cabinet would not close unless you fidgeted with it for a minute or so. It had to be lifted, cocked then pushed in.
Another annoying habit is the crew has gone from calling you my Mr.(insert last name), to Mr. (insert first name), to just using the first name. I'm not a prude but I thought this was just a little too informality. Read entire member review >>
Ok, I never get the letters behind the cabin type, we has a basic interior cabin, with L shaped.twin beds, which we like as it leaves more floor space, we like to be able to move around without disturbing the other during the night. The only negative I can say is fleet wide, that they do not have Fox News. But hey I'm on a cruise, so really, who cares if I get biased news. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was Carnival's generously sized interior. My husband will only book interior cabins because he can sleep in - likes the dark, vs balcony that lets sun in. We had an upgraded flat screen tv - small but ok. There was a small table for room service tray, but there was room for and would have really been nice if a chair could have accompanied the small table! Location - paid for Mid-ship, but this is really borderline mid - more like beginning of aft, but was ok due to being able to go straight up to Lido, and casino, etc. Only thing was we seemed to get "smells" in our room during the night - food, smoke, exhaust - faint but noticeable.

8214 - is a 4F cabin.
- no shelves in the closet; hanging space only. Very inconvenient for shorts, swimsuits, etc.
- The air conditioning adjustments are done via vent on the ceiling. There is no instruction or markings and this is very hard to adjust.
- The lights in the bathroom take forever to come on!
- Take a nightlight and power strip
8210 - we booked three in this cabin...notable: the 3rd sleeps on a cot on the floor. With three in the room, there is zero room for suitcases or other storage. The cabin steward could not clean up because the floor was 100% occupied. Read entire member review >>
Too close to stairs/elevators - you can hear everyone's conversations as they pass through. Sink in bathroom is cracked.
General location was great - would recommend to book this floor, just a couple staterooms further away from the elevators on either side would probably be perfect. Read entire member review >>
Loved the location of the room (#9216). The "Menu" button on the TV does not work. Would love to see lounge chairs on Deck 9 at the front of the ship, instead of having to walk up to Deck 10. Read entire member review >>
