I have only ever had a balcony room before. Carnival called a week before the cruise (they have done this to me before) and offered an upgrade for $450 to the ocean suite - this really is a decent deal. it's 50% off what it would cost at booking and it comes with the 'faster to the fun' included. The room is slightly larger with the real difference being a full size tub/shower (although it is slightly thinner than a normal US tub). It also comes with double sinks as well as a separate changing area with vanity. The room has mirrors behind the headboard as well as lining the front wall, as well as two closet areas (about 1.5 feet wide each). There was more counter space in the room than I could use. Overall the room was great for an upgrade and included an extra 5 or so feet in width in the balcony as well as the room. Read entire member review >>
Everything in the room was in good working order I enjoyed the tub and the separate dressing area with sliding door. With 2 children it was nice to have the extra changing space.
The balcony needs some work. There was a lot of rust but it was still nice to sit outside and enjoy the views. I NEED a balcony even with rust. Read entire member review >>
Great room and balcony. Nice bed and great pillows. Lots of room to move around and rest. The bathroom with the double sinks and whirlpool tub was awesome. Also the closets were great to have. Amazing!!!!! Read entire member review >>
The room was a little larger than a typical balcony room, but very similar. It did have tons of storage and I loved having double sinks and a tub. I’m not sure that it is worth the extra cost and I don’t spend much time in the room, but it was fun to try a different cabin type. I will say that the cabin was very far forward so it was quite a walk to almost anything. I would definitely try to book a cabin mid-ship. Read entire member review >>
Great layout! Loved having a separate private vanity area and closet. The whirlpool tub was powerful. The balcony was large and easily accommodated 4. The drapes were kind of hanging off their hooks, but that was minor. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was smaller than normal ocean suites.... carpet dirty, old, dated. Mirrors and surfaces dusty.had to request something to clean them with before a steward came in and wiped them with a towel (no cleaning stuff used at all)...still dusty after they wiped. Bathroom tub base on outside very rusty and had bits of mold growing on it. Bathroom smelled at times like sewer gas or something...nasty. I asked the steward for a foam pad or egg crate for my back....I have lung cancer and need more padding. She claimed they had no such thing on the ship ....funny, I have had pads put on the bed the last 4 or 5 cruises with no problem. I had to hurt the whole trip ...Thanks for cutting out yet more stuff Carnival. All in all, the cabin was very noisy at night especially, between the loud music coming up from the atrium and the loud drunks in the halllways. I would not book on Carnival Conquest again...ever.

Loved the cabin!! It was right near the glass elevators so easy up to the pool/Lido and easy straight down to the foreward dining room.
The bathroom was luxurious with double sinks and a whirlpool tub. There were 2 great closets with plenty of hangars and the decor was restful. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was great. I love the suite's for two main reason's. First is extra space. Having four of us in one cabin I like having the extra space to move around. Second is the bathtub. My wife hates taking shower's and loves having a bathtub. The priority boarding is also a great perk of booking a suite. The room was nice, just like all the other suites on the Conquest class ships. The steward was nice but we hardly ever saw him and it took a while if we needed anything for him to get back to us. Maybe I'm just being picky here because it's not like we didn't enjoy the room.

Junior kept our cabin clean and well-maintained. He impressed us by calling us by name every time we met. We noticed he knew every passenger and was able to connect them with the correct room numbers. He was exceptional and fun to be around...always smiling and asking how we were doing.It didn't matter how busy he was, he always took the time to interact. When we travel again we will ask for Junior by name. Read entire member review >>
Smaller that the OS I had one Carnival Destiny (Sunshine) but I guess that is due to ship design. Nothing special about the suite. Just a little more rocking with the ship due to it being Forward. Read entire member review >>
This room was amazing. Nice and big, tons of closet space. Good storage space in the bathroom and the vanity area. I loved the option to have a bath in the jacuzzi tub especially after a long day in the sun. I just wish it was a little shorter, hard for short people to climb into it.The bed is situated better in a suite than it is in a balcony room. The suite feels like a big hotel room and makes you feel less like you are on a ship. The balcony is large and you can actually move around on it without feeling crowded. I am glad I tried it once but for the price I will probably go back to a regular balcony room on my next vacation. Read entire member review >>
Our room had plenty of space. We actually got hooked up with a handicapped room from the lady who helped with the tickets as a honeymoon gift. Great view and the beds were super comfy! (: Read entire member review >>
WOW, so much space, we each had our own closet and drawer space, with room still left over.Balcony was huge, 1 1/2 times larger than a standard balcony.Bathroom had two double sinks and whirlpool tub with glass doors, it was nice not fighting with the plastic shower curtain.

The cabin had lots of room for the 3 of us and a lot of storage. It had a changing area outside of the bathroom that could be closed off. Since there were 3 of us, one would change in the bathroom, one in the changing area and one in the room. Made it easier and faster for all of us to get dressed. It had a bathtub that I would have loved to have used but with my disability I couldn't get in it so used the showers at the spa. I spent a lot of time on the balcony reading and since it had 3 chairs there was plenty of room for all of us. I would love to get this room again. Read entire member review >>
Our wheelchair accessible Ocean Suite #7228 is a very spacious suite with an L-shaped living area. When entering there is a short foyer where the wheel chairs can be parked easily. There is a large bathroom with a Jacuzzi bathtub and shower, a bidet and a granite counter with two sinks and 4 shelves for toiletries; an elegant bathroom! This suite is beautifully decorated. There is an extra long balcony with 4 chairs (2 reclining) and two small tables for snacks or drinks. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 7325. Fantastic! Beautiful! Very spacious with luxurious linens. Double sinks, marble vanity, jetted tub/shower, separate area for make-up and hair. Very comfortable bed and even the berth for our daughter was twin-sized and very comfy. Ample storage space for everything. Surprisingly quiet! Loved our balcony except for smoking neighbors.

Room 7325-Needed to replace the deck light. We kept forgetting to ask! It was out the whole time we were there. Otherwise, lots of closet space and very nice accomodations. Read entire member review >>
