Our room was on deck 1, so had been renovated. The USB ports are nice. We never even had to use the power strip I brought. Flat screen TV is sleeker and takes up less room. The safe did not work so we just went without. The room was fine for Mom and I space wise, but having sailed before with 3 of my girlfriends and I sharing a room, I’m baffled at some of the “upgrades” as they have taken away precious shelf and storage space from the room. The three closets were as follows: the one near the door had the safe on one shelf, the life jackets on the floor, and a very tall shelf over 5’ high that was not practical for us to use. The middle one only had a rod with 5-6 hangars. Except for the lack of hangars, it would be more than enough space for dresses for 4 women, unless they were there for a wedding or something. The last closet had the mini fridge on the floor, one useable shelf on top of that where I kept my clothes. There were three pull out drawers, one of which was partially taken by the hair dryer. There were two small shelves below the vanity and store space in the little bedside tables. Our cabin did not have the pull out upper bunks so maybe cabins with the upper bunks are situated differently. The two beds were separated per our request when we arrived. We did rearrange the little bedside tables so that my bed was against the wall and we had more space in the middle. It was quite narrow (I had to turn to my side) at one spot between the bed and the vanity. Read entire member review >>
They forgot to pull the two bunk beds from the ceiling. I went to Guest Services and it was done before I went to get changed for dinner! The space was small, but it was fine because we completely utilized all the closets, drawers and cabinets. We also stored our suitcases under the bed so there was plenty of room for girl time (makeup, jewelry, hair, getting dressed)! Read entire member review >>
Nice, spacious room. Had everything I needed: a desk, chair, 2 beds combined into a King, typical bathroom, and tons of closet space. Room stewards seemed to park their cart right outside my door each morning. I didn't mind, because I wake up early. But if my husband had been along, the noise might have woken him earlier than he would like. Read entire member review >>
Nelson, our room steward for 2205 was fantastic. There is a hair dryer in the bathroom. There is also a body wash and shampoo dispenser in the shower. I brought a small night light as the interior rooms are very dark. A 2-3 outlet adapter would have also been a good idea as we had a few things that needed charged at the same time. The safe uses a credit card strip to activate but your sail and sign card works too. Beds were super comfortable. Suitcases fit under the bed and there are bath robes in the closet. There could have been more hangers but there are drawers. Read entire member review >>
Wide hallways, easy access to ships elevators, staterooms were very roomy and closet space average. Bathrooms were surprisingly large and well equipped. I've been more cramped on Princess' ships in Balcony rooms! believe it or not. We loved the room even though it didn't have a balcony. We were midships, port side, we always had a terrific ride, hardly felt any ship movement. Seas were relatively calm 3-6 ft. - for a cruise ship, that's nothing really. We were very comfortable in our stateroom. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was great and the bed was really comfortable which is most important... and the water was always nice and hot and plentiful! The closet space was fine but would have been even better had the extra bedding been removed as that took up quite a bit of space. The only other thing would have been to have a fan in the bathroom:) Read entire member review >>
Small cabin, VERY noisy hallways and behind the walls noises from moving luggage I guess. The bathroom was not very clean when we arrived. Hair in the shower in plain sight. Service was pretty average but everyone was very friendly. Just SLOW. Read entire member review >>
We had a cabin in the front of the ship 2209 and it was very quiet and the only noises we heard was when the ship hit high waves. For the most part that did not happen late at night. The Cabin was well maintained and service impeccable. Read entire member review >>
Deck 2 is only seven decks away from perfection. It provides convenient access to the mid-ship facilties and only two floors down to access the gangways, something that is particularly handy on a six-top itinerary. The only thing you aren't close to is Lido deck, hence the seven decks away remark.
The room was convenient to elevators and stairs and remarkably quiet. While some people have complained about loud and rowdy fellow guests, none appeared to be staying near our room.
The only complaint surrounds the uneven water pressure in the shower. Normally the showers on Carnival ships have a strong, consistent stream. Victory appeared to have isues with air in the pipes leading to the spitting syndrome we experienced on this trip. Read entire member review >>
