Carnival Glory offers a modest range of categories from insides to suites. Of the ship's 1,487 cabins, 60 percent offer an ocean view; 60 percent of those feature private balconies.

Non-suites are typically about 185 square feet; balcony sizes range from 30 to 75 square feet depending on cabin location.

Decor-wise, insides, outsides and balconies feature Carnival's pleasant peach palate. Insides come with chairs; all others have seating areas with sofas (some are pull-outs) and coffee tables. One way in which Carnival distinguishes itself is by offering beds that convert from two twins to a king. (Other cruise lines use more narrow twins that, doubled, equal a queen.) Beds are outfitted with soft linens and duvets.

Bathrooms in all cabins have Carnival's famous "freebie" amenity basket that is filled only once and typically includes a pack of disposable razors, shampoo samples (in packets not bottles), breath mints, toothpaste and the like. In the shower (tubs are found only in suites) shampoo and shower gel dispensers are kept full. Still, bring your own if you take hair care seriously.

Cabins feature interactive TV's offering up pay-per-view movies and a different complimentary movie each day along with port and shore excursion information, re-runs of onboard shows, and satellite broadcasts of CNN, Fox News and NBC. There's also access to your Sail & Sign account. All cabins have mini-bars filled with soda, drinks and snacks. Bathrobes and hairdryers are also part of the mix.

Balcony cabins are equipped with faux-wood patio furniture.

One of our favorite special cabin categories is the 230-square-foot "family stateroom," which features floor-to-ceiling glass windows but no balcony. there are only 18 of these, but the location on Deck 11 right below Children's World is incredibly convenient.

Suites offer a touch more room. The Ocean Suite is 245 square feet with an 85-square-foot balcony. The Junior category suite has 275 square feet of interior space with a 35-square-foot balcony. The Grand Suites are 300 square feet with 110-square-foot balconies. All suites have sitting areas, walk-in closets and whirlpool baths. Suite passengers have access to early embarkation, priority tendering and a special line at the guest services desk.

For do-it-yourselfers, launderettes are available on most cabin decks. Costs are $3 for a wash, $2.75 for a dry. Detergent and dryer sheets are also available for sale. Each laundry room is equipped with an iron and ironing board for complimentary use.

Stateroom was great.

Quiet deck. One of our staterooms had bathroom drainage problems, 8216. My only complaint was my children's bathroom shower had drainage problems from day 1 that you could only use the shower for 2 mins. We reported the problem then someone came in to check it but no one...continue

I packed quite a lot of clothing since I didn't know whether to expect chilly or warm weather and found that there was more than enough storage space for all our things.

My husband uses a CPAP machine for sleep apnea and there was nowhere to plug in the...continue
