We loved our balcony cabin. We had two singles put together into a queen. There was a walk in shower and sink with vanity, a sleeper sofa, a little desk, and a small table. A dressing mirrow as available in one of the 3 closets provided and our balcony had two comfortable chairs with a little table in between for relaxing on the balcony. We found the cabin very comfortable - including its size. There was also a LCD TV with satellite channels - including movie channels. We enjoyed the information channels. There was even a channel displaying the menu in the dining rooms. There really isn't a bad cabin on this ship. We loved our cabin. Our son and his friends interior cabin just a few doors down, while small, was comfortable and had enough room for all four young men. My interpreters, who were on Deck 2 in the bow of the ship, said they were comfortable as well. Room tip: If you enjoy feeling the movement of the ship choose a cabin that is on one of the lower decks Aft or Forward. You don't feel the the movement less on the higher decks and midship.

Cabin was fine, balcony was nice to have for view and to let bathing suits dry out on chairs. Tv was dated and sometimes blacked out.

6414 and 6416

Rooms were very clean and location was OK. Being near the elevator sometimes you would hear people yelling late at night, we had 2 balcony cabins and had the divider open so it felt like a suite. The mattress was hard as a rock and took a bit to get used to but we did. Carnival rooms are always roomy and well laid out.

Perfect gregor80

Great cabin. Was afraid first, as I read that deck 6 might get noise from bars below and because the cabin was close to elevators. But this is not the case! This cabin is super quiet, no noise from below, also no noise from elevators and not many people pass it as it is at the back of the ship. Would choose it again!

Not a bad cabin. Could get a little noisy due to the stairwell but overall it was pretty good.

Awesome Trip! sierra28546

Great room! Tons of space for clothes. We unpacked and slid luggage under the bed. Balcony was awesome, two chairs and a small table. Perfect for coffee in the mornings. Bathroom had a great shower and also plenty of places for our stuff.

Fantastic room, peaceful, clean, and as always a wonderful view. By the way, I get seasick and did not feel much movement in this cabin.

A 'no-frills' cruise uclmsatchel

Location has good and bad.

Good: Close to the stairs to go up and down. It is essentially mid-ship (both from a horizontal and vertical perspective) - you don't feel the motion of the ship at all.

Bad: The 'ding' of the elevators was audible.

Condition of the cabin: Generally good. Some rust showing on the balcony floor edge. Carpet is in OK condition, but really needs to be replaced soon (or get a through steam cleaning). Bathroom was missing a fixture and looked a bit outdated.

Very noisy room, near glass atrium and the sound carries directly into your room. Would not pick this location again.

We had Otama as a steward. He was pretty good though not the most personable steward we've ever had. We did tip him extra.

large L shaped cabin.no sofa bed so only sleeps two. Very spacious, two large windows , long balcony which has sunbed. Would definitely recommend this cabin. Unless your early to bed no noise from lounge below.

Our balcony room was starboard side and close to the middle of the ship. Room was always clean and plenty of space for the two of us. Nice to see they have started to replace the old TV's with some flat screen models.

We were in cabin 8312, it was a good cabin, only problem was that you could hear the chairs being moved from the upstairs, however overall it was a nice cabin.

Avoid getting a room on the 6th Deck Aft. It's above the Eagles Aft Lounge and the noise from the lounge can be heard and felt in your room. Bring an electical power strip because the room has only one outlet.

Very convenient to the Lido deck. We were concerned since we were a floor below the Lido deck and heard about noises from chairs being moved overnight. However, we never heard a thing. Our room was very quiet. This is the first cruise where we had a balcony, and I absolutely loved it.

Go South notherncruiser
Very noisey until 11:30 pm. Good for the younger crowd as it is close to everything.

Noisy due to the elevator. You can hear the "ding" at night. Also noisy due to the bars being located directly below us.

Cabin 9273 First night the cabin next to ours the 20 somethings were acting like wanna be Jersey Shore groupies and were drunk in the corridor outside our room. After the first night they must have found somewhere else to party. Room was located adjacent to elevators so need to knock before opening door or those waiting on elevators may get a show. Was quiet after first night and easy to get to room which was nice. Room size and bath was bigger than expected based on previous cruises. Highly recommend balcony.

Cabin 6209 was clean - it's near the smoking part of the boat though so it ruined our balcony time most mornings. Quiet location, never heard a peep!

Our cabin was just great and we enjoyed the balcony. We were above one of the many karaoke places and we could hear the entertainment from our cabin very loudly so turned the TV on and up to muffle it. I will be more careful when choosing a cabin the next time I cruise and consider what is above and below much more.

Room 6217. It was aft, almost at the front of ship, but we had no real issues. The room itself was large, with nice balcony, plenty of closet space, and bedding was very comfortable. Slept like a baby.
