Oceanview stateroom with a private balcony and twin beds that convert to a king. Every Carnival guest is assured of spacious, comfortable accommodations. All staterooms have carpeting, ample drawer and closet space, private facilities (shower, basin and toilet), telephone and color television showing first-run films. Our ships all feature staterooms above ocean level for a more comfortable cruise.
Great view and very quiet area of the ship. Disappointed that soap was not replenished. Towel animals were fun although we know in other areas of the ship, they got eyes on the towel animals - eyes are fun. :)
Lots of storage space. Staff filled our ice bucket (which had one drink in it) without being asked on several days which was very thoughtful and appreciated. beach towels replaced after use. Outside light didn't work. We only realized this halfway through our trip and didn't bother to ask them to fix it.
All in all very happy with the room. Read entire member review >>
We were in Cabin 6108, it is the very first cabin on the left side of the ship, 6th floor as you are facing the front. It had a balcony, and was handicap accessible (though we didn't need for it to be). The room was truly wonderful. Because it was the forward most cabin, it was slightly larger than the other rooms (noticeably when I peeked in the door to other cabins on our way off the ship) which was nice. I did expect the balcony room to have a sofa in it, but instead it looked like the space had been used to make the bathroom handicap accessible which was probably a good trade off. The bathroom was quite large. There was a seat to sit on in the shower, and a detachable shower head. It was our first time in a balcony room, and I did enjoy being able to relax in our own private outdoor area. It seemed that it was probably extra windy in our forward location but not so much that we couldn't enjoy it. Sunny (Sunistlava?) from Russia was our cabin Steward, and she was wonderful, very chatty and always available. Read entire member review >>
The view from the balcony was great. We had plenty of closet/drawer space. The bathroom was a bit tiny but worked fine. If you plan on being out of the room from about 7pm - 1am this won't bother you but this room is right above one of the lounges. Turned out to not be a good location for someone who wanted to stay in the room more often than not - not the case with us. Read entire member review >>
Only one negative on the Cabins I can think of. It would be better to put non-smokers up Forward and smoking cabins to the Aft. This way smoke does not fill everyone's cabin everytime someone wants to enjoy some tobacco....just a thought. Read entire member review >>
This balcony cabin was in a good location...midship, not far from the elevators. Very quiet with no club or casino noise from below. A good amount of space with a queen bed and a couch. 185 sq ft. with a 35 sq. ft. balcony
There was plenty of closet space, a safe that uses a swipe card. There is no refrigerator in these rooms. Also, we could not access our account on the TV. Robes are included with all rooms on Carnival.
A large shower with shampoo and body wash dispensers, also had a small clothesline for wet bathing suits. Hairdryer which was adequate.
Bed and bedding were very comfy and I'm fussy! Pillows were nice and soft.
19" color TV. Not a new flat screen. Read entire member review >>
