The cabin was always clean. We found out that now you are offered only room cleaning once per day, either in the morning or evening. If you select both you will be charged extra now, surprise. Anyway, the person in charge was excellent, very professional, courteous and always remembered our names. We tipped extra directly to him. This room was on the Lido deck and was close to elevators, pools, and eating areas. It is a great location.
In order to save, there are no pens now, no paper to write on, the Samsung TV is so basic that the resolution was poor to 480. Could not adjust brightness or any setting as the remote controls are limited. Since we are Gold, we had to remind our server that we receive a bottle of water and a pin each. If you do not say anything they will not bring anything. This happened on our last cruise with Carnival.
But I guess times are tough and getting worse so Cruise Lines have to cut costs somewhere and it is with the extras that before we took for granted. Still, we had no major complaints as we were treated excellently. Read entire member review >>
The room were in by far was the worse condition room we've ever had. It was stateroom 9259. The location on the Lido deck was awesome. We didn't have problems with spill over sound from the deck and it was very convenient. The room itself was pretty filthy. The silver tray where the drinking glasses sit and water bottles was disgustingly dirty, with debris and dust on it. I had to take it into the bathroom and personally wash it. The counters were never dusted or cleaned at all during our stay.
The bathroom's floor "popped" when you walked on it because the molded floor was because the it was replaced and would give way when you walked on it. The handheld shower head was almost complete detached from the shower head so it wasn't very strong pressure and leaked continuously. Due to the state of the bathroom, I actually preferred to shower in the gym area.
The bed was the most uncomfortable of any I've been on. It was hard and the sheets were old and didn't feel comfy. Our stateroom attendant put a comforter down on the mattress, but it really didn't help the comfort. This was surprising because usually rooms are very comfy to sleep in. Also, there was constant banging at night and loud sounds because our room was attached to a utility room/closet or something. Read entire member review >>
I was cruising solo and this interior stateroom served my purpose well. It provided a comfortable bed, plenty of storage, and not too much noise. I had researched this ship so I already knew that the decor, etc. was dated: icky pink tile in the bathrooms, CRT TVs in the staterooms, etc. I had ordered bottled water and that was waiting for me when I arrived (note: there is no refrigerator in the stateroom).
I did hear some of the dancing on the deck above during the final sea day, and occasional loud people in the hall, but I wasn't spending enough time in my room to care.
My steward, Arip, was friendly and kept the place clean. I really liked the corner cabinet inside the bathroom. I was planning on using my cosmetic bag/door hanger to store all my toiletries but opted to place them all in the cabinet, and it worked out well.
The water pressure in the shower was fine. I'm only 5'3" but on the "fluffy" side. The location of the soap/shampoo dispenser was a little inconvenient and I would have preferred to see it on the long end of the shower so I didn't keep bumping into it, but it wasn't a huge problem. The water temperature does fluctuate a bit: if it cools down, resist the urge to make it warmer as it will warm again in a few seconds and you don't want it to suddenly get too hot.

It was a good cabin, it was a little dated though. We had a great room steward (Michael) who regularly replaced our bathrobes and kept everything clean. There is pink tile in the bathroom and a chest at the end of the bed to hold the life jackets. Read entire member review >>
Quite location located close to elevators "mid ship". Found room to be cramped with 3 people and believe this to be due to mattress on floor for son instead of loft bed. Bed was adequate but not the most comfortable. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was HC modified but was smaller than I expected due to the shape. If the TV were replaced by a flat-screen, it would be easier to maneuver in the cabin. Enjoyed having the deck out front, but didn't enjoy the door slamming that happened early every morning. Read entire member review >>
Panoramic Deck- Inside room
Roomy enough to get ready. But we were really only in the room when we woke up and went to bed. Bathrooms were big enough. Always cleaned and turned over in a timely fashion. Read entire member review >>
