Our cabin was not updated yet, but had a king bed, a couch, vanity with stool, and 2 chairs and a table on the balcony. The bathroom was older, but we didn't mind as it was roomy enough for showering and getting ready for the day. The tv was old, but we never turned it on so it did not matter to us. When we arrived, the room steward asked us if we wanted our room cleaned morning or evening; they don't do it twice a day anymore. Read entire member review >>
Dirty full of dust, Dirty window to balcony, Bathroom floor tiles mold.
Sheets were never changed (stained) when we boarded they must have just made the bed from the last people who were in our cabin. We requested them to bring new sheets. They did bring new sheets. Good amount of closet space. Lots of hot water. I cleaned the shower floor tiles myself with a wash cloth and soap, I scrubbed before using it. Read entire member review >>
Just OK. Needs updating but everything was clean and the main bed was comfortable. My son who is 5ft. 7in. tall had to sleep on a couch that was maybe 5 feet long. His legs were hanging off the end. The partition between our balcony was broken and it kept banging with the wind. I tried to shove some tissue where the latch was to try and soften the noise but it didn't help. There was no mini fridge in our room to keep our cans of pop cold that we brought on the ship. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was directly above the band stage outside the casino. Was VERY loud. Sounded like they were in our cabin. They stop about 12:30 so if you stay up late this won't be an issue. Room was dirty and balcony was rusty. Windows haven't been washed in months. Sink was clogged. Décor hasn't been updated or replaced. Couch had tears. TV was old tube type. Buttons were broken and missing.
This was a very cheap cruise--so I wasn't expecting luxury. However I figured that there were certain standards that Carnival would maintain. I will never sail Carnival again. Read entire member review >>
We stayed on the Spa Deck 11. I'm by all means not picky but our Cabin was dirty - we had blood on the sheets and on the couch. Dust on the headboard, moth holes in the curtains. I felt like I was getting bitten under the bed sheets which caused me not to sleep very well. Bathroom was clean but very old fashioned, pink sink (however, this didn't bother me) Read entire member review >>
very dingy, need major refurbishment , curtain have burned holes from cigarette, furniture is old, walls and picture frame where dirty , tv outdated still a old tube tv ,bathroom outdated as well . Read entire member review >>
We had a little bit of a problem with our cabin. The size was fine, as was the balcony and the bathroom, but there was a faint musty/moldy smell in the stateroom hallways and in the room itself, which our steward attributed to the air conditioning duct system. The smell persisted throughout the length of the trip. Once in the room, we got used to it relatively quickly, but whenever we came back to the room, we smelled it again. In addition, our room was right above the piano bar, so we were able to hear the noise that that generated every night. It wasn't too bad - it was faint and didn't keep either of us from being able to fall asleep, but be forewarned that if your room is above a bar on this ship, you will be able to hear it in your cabin Read entire member review >>
Despite what we'd heard, there was plenty of storage space, and the balcony was a huge plus. What a great place to spend quiet morning breakfasts and relaxing before bedtime. The bathroom was a decent size and there was a nice size medicine cabinet. Do bring an alarm clock! I was constantly checking my phone for the time or asking someone with a watch. We slept well-the room was very quiet. Perhaps we were lucky in picking our location. We were on the 7th floor approximately mid-ship. Read entire member review >>
Very small cabin, showing its age. Steward kept it clean and tidy. Lots of noise (see review above). There was even noise out in the hallway, with folks running up and down into the wee hours of the morning. Read entire member review >>
The room was clean & comfortable and plenty of storage space. Because it is an older ship, don't expect a flat screen or an in-room minibar, but you will have plenty of places to stick your things. (That's most important to me). Read entire member review >>
We enjoyed being on the 11th level - spa deck. Limited staterooms were available on this deck and noise was limited, although we were immediately below the adults only area of the ship, so when on the balcony we could hear the music from the deck above and the conversations of people hanging over the railing. I would definitely consider a return to this deck, though. our stateroom service was good, although the cabin steward never introduced himself, which we would have enjoyed.

great view, perfect size. Has a couch which we used for our suitcases. Bathroom needs updating. only complaint was when were was a show going on in the Adriatic lounge you could hear it word for word! If you go to bed before midnight this is NOT the cabin for you. Read entire member review >>
CABIN #6432: We had booked one of the few category 8A "Premium" L-shaped balcony rooms, which are priced the same as a regular balcony - but with twice the balcony length (due the unusual L-shape of the room). I had done a fair amount of research / weighed the reported pros & cons before booking this cabin, and I can tell you my initial hesitancy was completely unfounded. This cabin was FABULOUS in every way, and had no issues w/noise whatsoever despite being directly above one of the lounges below. The L-shape (built around a crew stairwell) made the room feel more like an actual suite, vs. the usual sardine can. Ours was the very last cabin on the port side of the ship, directly adjacent to the aft-wrap (corner) cabin. There was actually a separate door/entryway to access only our cabin and the aft-wrap, which provided additional privacy/peace and quiet (no little kids running outside our "actual" cabin door at all hours of the day & night)... it was pure heaven. Chaintai was our wonderful cabin steward, and greeted us by name after the first night/introduction, often engaging in conversation and asking how our day had gone, etc. We loved the towel animals set out for us each night, and my daughter actually bought the towel animal How-To book for $15 midway through the cruise. Our double-lengh balcony was THE BEST, and came furnished with 3 deck chairs and a side table plus room to spare (you easily could have fit 2 more chairs out there). I know some cruisers feel they don't spend enough time on a balcony to justify the add'l price, but I feel it's well worth it - if no other reason than to be able to prop the door open (bring a bungee cord for this purpose) and listen to the waves all night long while you sleep. I also love grabbing breakfast from the buffet (2 decks directly above us on this ship - quite convenient!) and bringing my plate back down to the room, so I can eat on the balcony while watching us pull into port. Balcony chairs are also great for drying your swimwear after a day in port (much easier than trying to line dry them in the air-conditioned bathroom). Rest assured, fellow CC members, I would NEVER dream of hanging my clothes over the railing - proper cruising etiquette (for all the newbies out there) forbids hanging your unsightly clothing/swimwear over the railing - not to mention it would likely blow overboard once you start sailing (*wink*). Anyway, the L-shaped cabins get 5 stars in my book, and I would take one again in a heartbeat! Read entire member review >>
Great location, close to the elevators but not too close to be noisy. Most of the time we were docked on this side so we could watch people get on and off the ship at port and watch as we sailed away. Everything was working and in good repair. Read entire member review >>
We were in cabins 8202 and 8204, which sit right behind the bridge. While we loved the adjoining balconies, it was a little awkward having the bridge extension right outside our room. That said, 8202 was amazingly quiet, and we never heard any noise outside our room. Read entire member review >>
Loved it, We had a balcony cabin on level 6 (6215) and could not fault it other than we were quite near to the main entertainment area so some nights i did feel i knew the show before i actualy saw it, just because i could hear the staffs rehearsal. when we boarded we found our TV didn't work, one phone later and we had a maintanence man ready to repair. As he could not do immediatly, asked what time we would be out so that he didn't disturb. by the time we returnrd from dinner, 1 working TV! The shower was amazing, plenty hot water and lots of power! Hairdryer? Forget it, take you're own if you don't want to spend an hour blow drying!Very clean, plenty of space, lovely comfortable bed, not too much noise from corridors and balcony is a must in my mind! The sky at night in the Caribean is the clearest i think you could ever see. Only downside i can see is that when ship at sail (most nights) the outside lights have to be off! Bit of a pain if, like me you'd like to chill and read a book on your balcony whilst listening to the sea lapping around the boat! Next time, i'll take a torch!! 10/10 Read entire member review >>
Room 8340 had an amazing balcony! There was a little scrapping of chairs above, but usually only during the day. It never kept me awake. We liked the location near the midship elevators. Read entire member review >>
Decent storage, super comfy bed (even with the lump in the middle where it was pushed together), hot pink bathroom, something rattled in the ceiling on rocky nights but overall fairly quiet room. Read entire member review >>
Cabins on the Victory need an overhaul. Bedding was ok. Needs storage in the worst way!! And add a mini fridge instead of leaving cans of soda on the counter. Tacky!! Remove the 19" TV from the 80's and add a flat screen that you can actually see and hear from. The bathroom has plenty of counter space but no storage or anywhere to plug in a curling iron. Shower curtains were worn out and get rid of the cheap soap dispenser in the shower stall. If you're going to give away soap, conditioner, etc. please use something name brand, not the generic crap.

2 closets, good amount of drawers and cubboard space, no mini frig, normal size bath room for most ships, sofa and table, small tv, nice balcony. Hallways very noisy day and night due to Puerto Rican groups on ship.
Do not think we will do this cruise again due to the ship caters to the Puerto Rican group more then the USA or other guests. Read entire member review >>
Balcony Cabin 6431 was quiet,spacious and comfortable.
Bathroom was adequately spacious,too...and there's a Safe in the cabin!
We spent Election Night 2008 on Victory,
with my wife glued to the TV, watching the results come in!
I made great use of the balcony for photographs. Read entire member review >>
Loved the cabin. We had a great balcony and there was ample space for us. Some have complained about music from below our room, but we barely noticed it and really didn't have any effect on our cruise. Would book this room again without a doubt. Read entire member review >>
