Every Carnival guest is assured of spacious, comfortable accommodations. All staterooms have 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

Better Than Expected Cruisinlessard
Neat and clean, roomy enough. Old TV but they have a great channel line up. Plenty of closet space. Great cabin steward.

The cabin is on the Upper Deck 6282 near but not too close to the elevators and stairs and you can hear the entertainment down on the lobby deck and the music is not bad to listen to at night. The cabin was cleaned everyday while we were at breakfast and turned down with towel animals while we were at dinner and catching either the show, listening to music in the different areas, or catching the comedy act. We had plenty of room to hang our clothes and drawer space. The bathroom took a little to get used to with a small space. The toilet was really interesting with the flushing method. We had plenty of room for our toiletries and plenty of towels to use. Our cabin steward and his team took great care of us. I highly recommend having a balcony and being midship.

The cabin was physically clean and laid out well. The room steward was good. The balcony door does not latch good and lets in outside smells (neighbors smoking). The entire room wreaks of cigarette smoke non-stop, I think it must be in the carpet and air ducts. This smell really ruined the cruise for us on top of causing major respiratory issues with our almost 3 year old.

Best week of my life MotheringInstinct
Very clean. Shampoo and body wash were provided but I had to buy conditioner because of the salt water! I brought battery operated tea lights to use as night lights to get to the bathroom during the night. It is very dark out on the ocean! We brought window clings to decorate our door to make it easier to find.

Located in the AFT section of the ship. Quiet, nice and clean. For some reason I swear that around 6:00 p.m. every night I'd get a smell of charred burger (like flame broiled burger king). It was just weird. It was a quick walk to the stairs, and as long as you could remember which MDR you were supposed to be at, it may be an even quicker walk to the MDR. Bathroom was nice and clean. Only 2 of the closets had a rod/hangers. So if you're going to fit 3 people in there, not everyone will have their own "closet" if you need hanging stuff.

We had cabin 6328 mid ship. This was our first balcony stateroom and we really enjoyed sitting out in the morning enjoying the beautiful ports. The room was spacious and had great storage for two people. The shower had good pressure. The room was showing its age a bit and the tv was older but everything was in good working order with no issues. We did spend a little more time enjoying our cabin because we were relaxing on our balcony. I think I will want a balcony on my next cruise as well.

Will still go back.... barbadosbeachbum
Our cabin was fine for the most part, but our bathroom was an ongoing issue all week long and we seemed to see and awful lot of maintenance crew coming in to fix our flooding bathroom. And when I say flooding, I mean we could have got out a boat and floated around in the bathroom. This happened at least 3 times during the week. Plenty of room for 3 people, and easily could have fit a 4th. The balcony was nice and private. Have always loved Carnival for the amount of storage space!

Great Trip KillerKev

We were offered an upgrade to this cabin after initially booking an interior....what a tremendous thing that was. We thoroughly enjoyed our cabin and its roominess. It was so very nice to be able to have a place of solitude on which to enjoy morning coffee. We were delighted with this cabin...I would recommend bringing along a daily dose of Dramamine as we noticed quite a difference between this cabin and the interior cabin amidship we had last year. Seemed to be a lot of rocking and rolling...but with a daily dose of Dramamine we had absolutely no trouble at all.

I would not book the back of the ship for a room as it was pretty rocky the first few nights and we were above a dance club so noise was there.

Fabulous Cruise kiwibor

Large balcony cabin - decent size balcony. Plenty of storage space, and ample room in bathroom for toiletries.

Room was comfortable but very basic, There was a lack of draw space and the night tables did not have a draw and were not very useful.

Great, quiet location beneath bridge. Upholstery faded; window coverings worn; furnishings tired. Bed very comfortable. Toilet bowl disconcertingly darkened with wear.

Wonderful lesleywoollard

Very good size, spotlessly clean, room service available. Room cleaned daily. This cabin was above the bar area but we did not hear any noise. Plenty of cupboard space. Balcony had two chairs and a small table so nice to sit out on if you want some privacy. We were more than happy with this cabin.

Noisy and stinky due to the smokers on each side. We could hardly use our balcony. What a waste.

6278 2 beds put together to make a big one, only problem is as you sleep the beds spread apart a bit and you fall in the crack. Couch isn't all that great, but you don't spend much time in there sitting on your couch! Balcony is nice, though the chairs don't really fit out there comfortably.

Carnival Valor 27/10/12 barbadosbeachbum
We were in cabin 6343, and the room had tons of space. We were only two of us, so we didn't even use up all the space provided. The balcony space was decent, but because we were just above the Casino Bar, the music went until 12:30 every night and was really loud. This could obviously be disturbing for anyone with kids or people who want to sleep before that time. During the day, it was nice and quiet and you are, literally, mid-ship.

Room: We booked balcony rooms and had the divider opened between the 2. We had rooms 6398 and 6400. This was the perfect set up. Our son could sleep in the room with grandma, have his own bed instead of a couch and still move freely between the 2 rooms via the balcony. Unfortunately, these rooms were located right above the One Small Step Dance Club. This proved to be a disaster :) You could not hear the music, but the base from the music was sooo loud it vibrated the floor, walls and bed from our cabins. You could even see ripples moving through the water in our glasses. We could not turn the TV up loud enough to drown out the noise. We made multiple complaints to guest services at times begging them to please turn it down as it went full force until 3:30 am each morning. My initial frustration is the guest services attendants appeared amazed that there was a complaint. Carnival did address our concerns appropriately. The ship was initially full, but someone debarked on the first port and we were given their balcony room. We no longer had the adjoining balcony set up we were so happy about, but they did give us 3 keys to the other room so our son would have a key to both. The cabins were on the same floor and relatively close ... just the new one did not come with additional noise. All 4 of us were refunded some money on our accounts for the inconvenience and we all thought it was a fair amount. * I would hope in the future Carnival would treat these rooms like an "obstructed view" and add a disclaimer during booking. I am certain there is a population of their customers that would not be bothered by the noise... however, I feel comfortable saying most unsuspecting grandparents and families are.

Great Cruise! freddy penguin
Small for three people, did not notice any noise even though the casino is below it, not enough hanging closet space

Very Noisy Location. Was directly across from Crew Space. Could hear them at all hours of the night banging the doors coming and going. It is only one floor above the Casino so the smell of smoke greeted us every time we left the room and at times could smell the smoke in the room. The crew has cart with a squeaking wheel that went up and down the hall at all hours of the night.

We were very happy with our balcony room. I would suggest a higher deck than 6 because we could hear noise from the bars when we went to bed early.

We were in cabin E7400 and I would not ever book that cabin again. It was very noisy being near the elevators. The room was fine, storage was awesome and the balcony, although small, was just fine. I just would not want to be near the elevators again. The deck "Empress" is great as it is sandwiched between decks with just staterooms.

Mostly not an issue, but at times, the band below was very loud. Plenty of space, very comfortable beds. Loads of closet space.

our cabins were very nice. we always get balconies. we were in 6283 and 6285. they were pretty quiet except when the singers sang in the American lobby from 9-12pm.! the sound carried up. there was plenty of closet space and the balconies were very nice. we were lucky to not be next to any smokers, so we were able to enjoy our balcony.

beyond my wildest dreams!
Carnival Valor 6382 was a very quiet balcony cabin. It was in the center of the ship and one floor up from promenade.

Paradise Found esoteric escort
the cabins are small, true! but who wants to spend time in their cabin other than to sleep and shower? one bit of advice: this was our own fault and nothing against any cruise line...... DO NOT MAKE RESERVATIONS FOR 3 ADULTS IN ONE CABIN. Friendships will be lost! There were 3 of us, 2 men and one woman (friends only, nothing else) and by the 7th day, we had fully gotten on each others' nerves.

Center of ship, large shower stall, nice balcony, was directly over the entertainment by the casino, so some nights you heard the singer.
