Quiet but needs refurbishing.
We selected an Oceanview Guarantee and were pleasantly surprised to find that we were on the Empress deck, forward. The stateroom was comfortable although it needed a good dusting. I wiped it down and sprayed Lysol everywhere.
I used the laundry room's iron in front of stateroom E2 once. It is fully equipped with vending machines for soap and the washer dryer take quarters only.
Our steward kept our ice chest full of ice. He was happy when we ordered a robe from him since this gave him some favorable points.
He made a towel animal every night and on the second night, left our Platinum gifts, 2 Carnival logoed Tervis mugs and 2 pins on our bed.
