Enjoy the outdoor space of a private balcony with patio chairs and a table, along with all the standard Carnival stateroom amenities: two twin beds (convert to a king) and a single sofa bed, sofa and coffee table, desk and seat, and a full bathroom with shower.
Cabin was decent size for family of 4. Was not very clean when we entered but a good wipe down with Clorox wipes did the trick. Balcony was fantastic. Bunks for kids worked out great. Great storage. Read entire member review >>
This cabin was very nice, no issues. It was a little rocky, but I'm not sure if the whole boat felt that way on this cruise. Plenty of storage space, plenty of room for 2 people, nice balcony. It is an adjoining room and connected to the next door room (8305) with my parents, which was very nice. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was on the back which I was worried about because my daughter and I get motion sickness very easily but it wasn't bad at all. The noise above did get a little loud in the early morning when the staff was getting ready for the crowds but overall it was a good room and the views from our balcony was great.

Nice cabin location - just a few doors down from the elevator. The room size is adequate with a couch. Lots of space for clothes. Bring a power strip - not enough outlets. Balcony was small and tight. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was just OK. They are likely pretty much the same. BASIC. This is like Walmart....no luxury at all....just the basic cabin. The steward was lovely - Carnival is lucky to have him. Read entire member review >>
Very nice, clean, no problems at all. My grandson is 6'2" but is still considered a child. The open couch he slept on was very uncomfortable, and too short. The mattress was hard, but our steward added some extra cushioning for him and it was much better. Read entire member review >>
I have been cruising for the past 18 years and my room steward was quite friendly and he made a point to remember everyone's name. We saw him at least once a day and our room was well taken care of. Read entire member review >>
We had a port side, deck 8 balcony cabin #8354 which was nicely decorated BUT seemed smaller then other balcony cabins we had in the past on other large Carnival ships... not sure if they are or if its just due to layout. Cabin was in a great location to access the entire ship, and was quiet. Our balcony did overlook the smoking deck (down on deck 5) but we did not have any smoke smell at all. Others had complained there rooms were too warm, our AC was working great and was comfortable the entire trip. We did however have a nasty STRONG sewer smell, that would come and go, in our bathroom..... GROSS! Read entire member review >>
My husband enjoys being at the front of the ship so this is a common area for us. It was very quiet, the cabin was spacious and offered sufficient storage for the two of us. Read entire member review >>
Room was very spacious, bright and clean. Next time book 7 or 8th floor. We were right above the piano bar and heard Ben's performance every night lol!! SHOTS SHOTS SHOTS!!! Read entire member review >>
This cabin was well situated, close to the middle elevators and easy to get everywhere. It is also sandwiched between two cabin floors and does not have a connecting room (perfect for a couple). We never heard the elevators so that was a none issue and if it was a high traffic area, we didn't notice! These cabins are quite large and there was plenty of storage space.

We had a balcony room on the 8th deck forward. A couple things stood out to us. The toilet seat is so thin you will think you are sitting on a toilet with the seat up.Shampoo and soap in shower are watered down and useless.Showers in room provide lots of water and are nice. Plenty of storage for all your things, but never enough hangars so we always bring extra with us.First cabin we have ever been in where we had to turn the A/C down a bit because it was cold. We always bring a fan when we cruise but this time we never used it. Read entire member review >>
We had a balcony cabin on floor below lido deck. Our cabin was roomy, the cabin steward Jose took really good care of us and kept our cabin clean. The only down side was that we could hear slight noise from people walking above us or chairs being moved around. Very comfortable and great views. Read entire member review >>
Great Location. Right around the corner from elevators & staircase. Lido main area just two flights up. Laundry just one floor down. And everything else, all in easy access. No noise that we noticed. Would stay in this room again. Read entire member review >>
Rock hard beds. Sewage smell was horrible! Television was small. Bathroom seemed bigger than on previous ships and the shower was nice but overall layout felt very cramped compared to past cruises. Read entire member review >>
