Cabin 8208

Cabin was decent. Lots of storage for me and my wife. Bed was fine for me but too hard for her. Balcony is on the small side - no lounge chair, just two chairs and small able. Shower has a curtain rather than a sliding door - curtains are not my favorite on cruises...this one seemed to behave and not maul me :-) Internet was slow...seems that most people we talked to had the same problem no mater where their cabin was located. Decor was dated. And, as is the case with most cabins, only one outlet in the cabin.

Solid Vacation By: jimbojude
Typical balcony cabin. Liked the bed being beside the sliding door to the balcony. Can be made into a sofa bed and upper bunk. Functional. Shower was good and the water pressure excellent. Our cabin steward Budi -was outstanding, Would recommend

Boat was not up to par. By: cincinnatianne
Good space. We just didn't like how dirty the window was looking out to the ocean, we didn't like how dirty the glass was on our balcony, or how dirty our balcony floor looked and the interior of our room was worn with stains on the cabinet fronts, on the couch, on the walls, a cracked counter top in the bathroom and overall felt worn and in need of a good scrubbing.

Standard Balcony. Had everything you would need. More room for storage than other cruise lines. The colours on Carnival ships have to change. Beds were better than most we've had still too hard though. Balcony was nice, saw a great lightening show from a distant thunderstorm one night it was great! You can't smoke in your cabin OR on balconies any more. Don't let people away with it!! It's a 200$ charge for cleaning the room after. I have asthma and I certainly don't want breathing problems after you leave it. It soaks into walls, bedding, couches everything! and I certainly don't want to breathe it in while I'm resting on my balcony.

Nice cabin, plenty of storage. A/C worked well and bed was comfy. Please paint the metal areas on balcony. It is a rusted eye-sore.

Worse Cruise Ever By: rirish1
Crowded but expected due to 4 guests in room. Balcony was nice. Hardly saw the room steward. Couch and over head bunk were left in the "bed" position the whole cruise. Never had ice delivered to room.

Splurging on a balcony is worth it to us. This was a standard balcony room, neat, clean, functional.

The cabin was average. Once the bathroom was cleaned the toliet always reeked of urine. The balcony was cleaned during a sea day. However, the balcony could have used some touch-up painting.

Clean everything worked. Door to outside needed to be slammed shut. Showers drain and cabin steward is awesome. Ac doesn't get real cold when ship is sitting still. Wasn't a problem while it was moving.

Cabin was very nice with plenty of closet and other storage space. It could have used a detailed cleaning but was not significantly dirty, just minor stuff here and there. Our cabin steward took great care of us!

Cabin 7423
Jul 2015
The cabin is pretty standard. This was the first time we booked the back of the ship. (5 rooms from the very back) I really loved it. We were 2 floors below the Lido deck and 2 floors up from the Main deck so we did not use the elevators hardly at all. We heard no noise from above or below. The room beside us had 2-3 kids that were loud at times, but not during sleeping or relaxing time so no problem. Next time I will be getting a room on the Port side. I think it would be interesting to be able to see each port from your room. The only issue we had is the closet smelled like someone had smoked in it. Luckily we brought air freshener with us. We sprayed it MANY times and it helped.

Cabin 7365

First and Last Carnival Cruise By: r_ashley_2015
We stayed in cabin 7365. It was an upper deck, balcony room, toward the middle of the ship. Sounds perfect, right? Well, it was right across the hall from the steward station and we were woken up every morning at 6 AM by the clatter of their carts and their rather loud conversations. Their ruckus was continuous from 6 until around 9 AM, and they also worked late into the night, which sometimes kept us awake. In short, we got very little sleep.

Apart form the horrible color palette, the cabin was good enough. There was plenty of closet space, the bed was hard but comfy enough for me and the balcony, of course, makes all the difference. As expected the bathroom is small but works quite well, especially the shower curtain that works effectively preventing water from getting all over the floor (a pet-peeve of mine, I admit).There were two power outlets and that was more than enough for my needs, but the ceiling lighting was too bright and white for my taste.

Family trip By: bigmacksmom
Nice room. Kind size bed, two twins (one from above). Refrigerator (locked, we never opened). plenty of drawers and cabinets (there are two drawers under one of the twins, which we didn't notice until day 5 or 6 of the cruise). blowdryer, shampoo, body wash provided. bathroom is small but doable.

Nice balcony standard size room. Furniture was a bit warn. Convienant location both to the midship and aft stairs/elevator lobbies and in the middle of most of the useful places (pool, casino, aft bars, dining room). The only downside is the crew access door to the service elevator and crew stairs is right across - so you here the crew unloading their service carts every morning at 8am to start cleaning rooms.

Cabin 7409
Feb 2013
We were in 7409. I had read about certain rooms being too noisy and I was worried when I saw this one. It was on a direct line from the elevators. Every person that got off the elevator and turned would walk directly toward our door and then make their turn to go left or right. And yes, we did near a little noise. We could hear the dinging of the elevators when they would arrive. We could hear voices of people as they turned the corner going to or leaving their rooms. Since this was a crossroads of sorts, the stewards would place some of their equipment, carts, vacuums in the area and gather there. But you know, none of this bothered me. It didn't keep us up. Our TV drowned it out and when it didn't, it still was ok. I actually liked getting off the elevator and being in my room about 5 seconds later. The room was a standard balcony room. The safe in the room uses a credit card to lock it instead of a keypad. (There is no cost, it's just using the mag stripe to set a code) This is good and bad. It's good because it's quick. It can be bad if you only have one credit card on that account number because then only one of you can unlock the safe. We lucked out because both of our cards on the same account would lock/unlock. This room was right by the aft elevators so we could be anywhere we wanted in just a few minutes. We used the stairs a lot anyway and they are real close too.

Awesome Cruise By: CimW
Cabin 7367, 8c balcony. Great cabin, great location and quiet. Between the aft and midship elevators. Easy to go down the stairs from the Lido deck. Self laundry a few doors down. Bring your own hangers. They have plastic ones, which some of our shirts would fall off. We did bring a couple of our own but wished we had more. Need credit card or other for safe.

If you go for a cabin on the 8th deck be prepared for continuous noise of moving furniture

Cabin 7375
Feb 2012
7375 balcony- It was a nice room but had a lot of maintenance issues. The room is located across for a crew entry area and you get a lot of traffic from the crew moving on and off the floor. Great balcony but, beware of all the smokers we had a group of 4 next door that smoked all the time so we could not enjoy the view for very long or have the door open before we got smoked out.

We thought our room was very nice. We had a balcony on the 7th floor and everything went very smoothly. Our cabin stewart, Mark, was very nice and always tried to please.

Cabin 8359
May 2010
We had cabin 8359. It's a good location near an elevator bank and the laundromat. We had problems with one of the balcony partitions breaking loose 3 different times. We also had a problem with the shower drain clogging and causing a mess. The magnetic stripe reader on the safe is very sensitive and the safe will not open or close if there are any fingerprints on the stripe of the card you use. The cabin was was good but the balcony was very small. We found the bed to be hard. The television was about worthless and we're still clueless as to why they show 3 different local DENVER channels on a ship out of Texas.

Conquest Part Deux! By: bead_dazzled
Cabin 8309 gets a ton of noise from the Lido Deck. You can hear the deck chairs being moved around like the were in the same cabin with you. Book more forward in order to avoid this noise. Otherwise, the Verandah Deck is the best on the ship for cabins.
