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.
I discussed this in the body of the full review of the cruise. I would only add that if you choose to try a Cove Balcony, pay attention to its location. If you are a light sleeper or like to sleep late, don't get one that is below the Galley. You will hear the activity from there. There are three elevator foyers; one in the forward area, one in the middle and one aft. We utilized the mid ship elevators the most. For the Crimson Dining Room, we used the forward elevators. Our cabin was equidistant to the middle and forward elevator lobbies. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was sparse with wall outlets. It only had one so we had to get a surge protector from the staff. Don't plan on charging anything. Other wise it is the same standard style and layout as every other ship I have been on. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was nice, our first Cove Balcony. It was comparable to the upper balconies, only a bit more enclosed, less sun. Room was same as other rooms. It satisfied our needs. Paul our room Steward was friendly and attended to our needs as we needed. We received a card upon arrival and asked for the late afternoon service ( you could choose am, pm or both) No need for both as we were not around during the am or early afternoon and I like coming back from dinner with a clean room :) I could see If you had a cabin with 4 that both may be nice.... we were traveling with our 6 year old Granddaughter so like I said no need for both. We had some noise during the first couple nights due to windy conditions, and there is also a faint motor noise as you are on level 2. The noise from the motor was subtle and almost a nice sound for going to sleep. We had plenty of room for storage and I do not pack light! maybe a few more hangers would help, but I doubled up the hanging clothes. Our bed was comfortable, but I like a firm bed so if you are more of a soft bed person you may find it too firm. Overall our cabin was comparable to a nice hotel room, but only smaller.

Loved the arrangement of the cabin except the glass balcony door would "unsuction" and bump loudly any time the ship travelled at a high rate of speed. We ended up putting a towel between the door and the frame to curb the noise.
Also, the faucet in the bathroom had either low water pressure or just slow speed. The water flow was quite slow.
My biggest complaint was that there was only one regular outlet in the whole room. I use a CPAP machine and had brought an extension cord to use my machine at bedtime. The only outlet available was across the room under the mirror, so we tended to have a tripping hazard if anyone moved around in the dark. Read entire member review >>
We had Cove Balcony room 2375. Room was spotless and ready to go when we got on board at 1145am, but, having FTTF might have been a part of this. Good sized room, and wait for it.. LOVED the bathroom! I've seen some complaints about the size of the shower. I am big guy (BIG GUY) and I had ZERO issues with the shower. Bed was comfortable and linens were excellent. Bed was super comfortable. SMALL, teeny, tiny criticisms... The bed frame was showing the whole time, no matter how many times the bed skirt was fixed by Paul, our steward. Carpet had two real bad wear areas. Bathroom door you had to push/pull HARD to get it to close. Think these might be one of the aging things that might be addressed with drydock. EVERY lampshade was loose and floppy. Easy fix by tightening down the screw-nut that held them in place, but...Being so close to the water was fantastic. If we ever sail on a ship with cove balconies again, we will DEFINITELY book one. Read entire member review >>
This was our first cove balcony. Great being that close to the water. Same size as other balcony cabins but the balcony itself was about 10 sqft larger. All of these cabins were directly below the life boats so you don't have prying eyes from above. We were centrally located with easy access to all area of the ship. Very quiet. Our room stewards were the epitome of what exceptional service is all about. It's truly amazing to me that we were greeted by name from the first day on. Read entire member review >>
The balcony was small and the room was average, but the toilets didn't work half the time. The ship smelled of SEWAGE quite often! The room was cleaned daily but nothing to brag about. Read entire member review >>
Cabin: Deck 2 Cabin number 2294...we were told it was not connecting...let me assure you it is very much so CONNECTED, let me also assure you I heard every word and every snore from next door. The cove balcony was great except your voice echoed so there were no private conversations, and the suction of the balcony door was loud during fast speeds. Would definitely book another one though. Our carpet seemed a bit old and our curtains had suspicious stains on them..definitely time to maintenance the rooms. Our room steward was Richards and he was most helpful and attentive. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was fine. I didn't spend much time there except for to shower and get some sleep. There was actually hot water for the shower. U can adjust the temperature if u want it hotter. Plenty of closet space. I did love the cove balcony. The rooms r located on Deck 2 which put u closer to the water. I loved it. Our cabin stewart name was Jury. He took such good care of us. Read entire member review >>
Loved the cabin. Good space for 3 people, balcony was incredible to have. I worried about noise from the galley above, but I never once heard any noise from anywhere. The location on the ship was great also. The closest elevator brings you right up to the aft pool, and elevators were never full being on deck 2. We would definitely book this cabin again. Highly recommend. Read entire member review >>
For the three of us, this was nicely laid out. We had a good bit of room and plenty of storage for clothes, etc. Our steward was great and took really good care of us.
We enjoyed the cove balcony. Some may not because it is not fully clear - but you have lots of privacy and it is quiet. On a boat with so many people, it is nice to have a quiet spot to read, have breakfast, or just watch the waves. Read entire member review >>
We really liked this cove balcony room. It's a great value and being so close to the water is a totally different experience. We could see the harbor pilots coming to and from the boat at each harbor and that might be something that kids would like to see. The cove balcony is very private. The room is a good size and this one is conveniently located to the rear elevators which is handy for us. Read entire member review >>
We were in room 2280 and loved our Cove Balcony. (I would have rated it higher if not for the maintenance issue--more to follow on that subject.) Being that close to the water really gives you a sense of connection to the ocean. It had plenty of storage and thoughtful touches, like a full length mirror behind one of the closet doors. It had a full sized sofa and the biggest bed we have ever had aboard a ship. Our fantastic room stewards, Jimmy and Kornsri, made sure we stayed well-stocked and tidy. The first few days were fine, then Carnival starting doing balcony maintenance. Day after day we could not use our balcony because someone would be out there painting or chipping and scraping at rust or wiping the metal door frame with a WD-40 substance that left strong fumes (and grease on your clothes if you brushed against the frame). If they weren’t working on our balcony, they were working on someone else’s with a constant bang, bang, chip, scrape, bang. We would come back, not to a clean balcony, but to a one littered with rust chips, paint flecks and dirt, and a letter stating that they would perform the clean up the NEXT day. This went on day after day. Each time we thought would be the last.
After 5 days of balcony maintenance, we came back to find yet another letter telling us that they would be performing maintenance the next day. So we went to guest services and complained. They did then stop the maintenance on our balcony but continued working nearby, so we still had the noise or would came back to a dirty deck where chips and rust had washed down from higher balconies and left ours a mess. As much as I loved the Cove Balcony, I would be hesitant to book one again due to the issues with maintenance. Why pay for a balcony if you can’t use it? Read entire member review >>
Love, love, love the cove balcony. It was wonderful. Private and close to the water. Our stateroom was ample for two with plenty of storage. The shower is smallish but worked fine with the very tall husband. Our room steward was Jimmy. His customer service was exceptional. His last towel sculpture was a heart on our bed. Spent many hours enjoying the view. Read entire member review >>
Fairly good size for a cruise ship cabin. Cove cabins on deck 2, the Main deck, are closer to the water, and so, are pleasant and enjoyable. Cabin steward did a great job, but was not all that friendly. Read entire member review >>
The good- We had room 2256, and my parents 2315. Both were great rooms. The cove balconies were nice, but I can't say I'm crazy about them. I prefer the regular balconies, as when I sat down (I'm short), I couldn't see much of the water. I also have seen the flying fish, the ones that a lot of people say they've only seen from these balconies, from higher balconies. The room was always clean and the balcony was cleaned twice during the week. There is always plenty of room and storage for more than two people in these rooms.
The not-so-good- One complaint: lack of outlets. I already knew this and thought that we wouldn’t need a power strip. I forgot that my husband began vaping, so there was rarely time when I could charge my camera batteries or FitBit. That got a little frustrating, but no real issue here. Read entire member review >>
The room was more spacious than others cruise lines. There were no noise issues with the galley above our cabin (2393) except for a bit of banging on the very last night which lasted only a few minutes. I guess the final night is the best time for deep cleaning and maintenance. Storage space was good. The bathroom was adequate although I’d prefer a sliding door rather than a plastic curtain. TV choices were fairly limited. Read entire member review >>
If you enjoy a balcony, try a Cove Balcony at least once! It's amazing how close you are to the water. I personally loved it and will do it again given the chance.Our cabin was fine, with a connecting door to our friends' cabin. Weird that our rooms connected, but our balconies could not (the divider was sealed cast iron).Everything worked, was clean when we boarded and kept that way throughout the trip! Read entire member review >>
Fantastic being close to the water. We had rough seas for a couple of days, what a wave show from the balcony.I really enjoyed sitting on the balcony watching the waves passed by. Read entire member review >>
Loved the Cove Balcony 2252! Great spot for watching the spray from the front of the ship and the waves right below you. The balcony was never wet and was fun being so close to the water. This cabin is located behind the front elevators on the port side. Easy access by the stairs up one flight to the Atrium Lobby and main entrance to the theater. With so many elevators, never had to wait very long. The balcony itself is about a foot and a half deeper than the upper balconies. This makes it easy to stretch out and rest your feet on the lower railing. Great space and privacy! Read entire member review >>
Tony and the other staff did excellent jobs. Our room always looked as if it was our first time stepping into our cabin. I enjoyed the towel animals, so did my grandparents. We all were able to enjoy our chocolate surprise after we returned from dinner. Great Staff all around...Tony just added the cherry to the whole ice cream experience. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was nice. Bathroom was a bit larger than on some other cruises - especially the shower. Towels were plentiful and we had a superb cabin steward. Ice bucket full and he was very attentive. He always called us by name. The cove balcony is nice since it's so close to the water line. We were at a good location (under the shore excursion desk), not much noise. We were very close to the elevators which did not cause a problem - we rarely heard them. Read entire member review >>
Stateroom 2392, 2396, and 2388: We had 2392 - a cove balcony - which connected internally to 2396 (brother's family) and the balcony opened to 2388 (best friend's balcony). It was a great room and I love the cove balcony. These rooms are below the galley. We didn't hear too much noise, but a few days at sea we strongly smelled the scent of onions and peppers cooking. If you are sensitive to odors, this is not the room for you. On the bright side, I saw a dolphin jump from the water from my balcony.Final thoughts: I will not be visiting NOLA in the future and I will not sail out of that port again. I am glad I experienced it once - that was enough. The ship and crew were great and I enjoyed my time. Thank you to everyone who made it a memorable adventure! Read entire member review >>
Nice room. Convenient to most areas of the ship. Some of the reviews, talk about noise problems on this level, especially those rooms under the galley. We did not have any noise problems. I will say a big Thank you to Carnival as my first assigned cabin was under the galley. After reading the posts about noise I called Carnival to see about getting my cabin changed. The employee was very nice, and changed my cabin, even though I later learned from my travel agent, that they didn't actually have to do that. So yay Carnival. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was typical and very clean while we were on board we had our Carpet Replaced on Day 3 and all draperies rotated out on Day 4 and the Balconies Cleaned and painted on Day 2. we were told this switch out is done weekly 5 cabins from each section. Room Stewart was fantastic.... Read entire member review >>
Cove balcony, simply the best.. So close to the water it was amazing. cabin 2252 was under the shore excursion desk, so it was really quiet. Elevator so close to your room ,and no noise .. Read entire member review >>
The Carnival Dream has a unique balcony stateroom referred to as the Cove Balcony. I wasn't sure what to expect but I loved our cabin. These cabins are located on Deck 2 and are much more private than balcony staterooms in upper decks. The balcony space is a bit smaller than other balcony staterooms but no much. We truly enjoyed the private feel of the balcony. Should we have this balcony option in the future we will take it. Read entire member review >>
Great room...loved the cove balcony. Any room with a balcony is great for the money spent. Housekeeping was wonderful as usual. These people work hard to please the guests. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 2400 is located below the galley. We were awakened every morning very early with all sorts of bumping and scraping noises from above. I would not choose to stay here again. The cove balcony is not bad, but don't pick a cabin located under the galley on deck 3. Read entire member review >>
Loved the cove the 1st half of the week. It was nice being close to the water when seas were calm to moderate and winds were calm. The 2nd half of the week, the winds were strong and seas were rough so our cove was constantly wet from sea spray. It was not really usable the whole 2nd half of week because you would get wet sitting out there. We still liked it, and would still book it again to save money. But I could see how some people would not like it.
The room was a great size for a stateroom. Plenty of storage and floor space even with 4 ppl in the room. Beds were comfy. Room was quiet, located just above shore excursion desk. Bathroom was a good size. Balcony was also a good size compared to other ships.
Room steward was excellent! Read entire member review >>
cabin 2290 and 2294, adjoining cove balcony cabins on deck 2. Plenty of closet space, sofa converted to a bed and a top bunk came down from the ceiling. We liked the cove balcony since it was partially enclosed and it seemed better with small children. We had 4 in cabin 2290 and 3 in cabin 2294. Read entire member review >>
Cove balcony 2275. very convenient since near stairs but not noisy. very quiet and not too rough. just down the hall from the laundry. 3 big closets and nice size balcony. we would get this type of cabin again. Read entire member review >>
We got a cove balcony (2260) and this room was really nice. Average size room with the 2 beds put together for a king bed. It also had a couch that had storage under it as well as a little coffe table. Plenty of closet space with 3 closets in a room for 2. Bathroom is average size for a cruise ship and still has the super powerful suction toilets! The room had a safe and a mini fridge which was stocked by the room stewart. Also these rooms have little flat screens that you can order room service off of, only thing was you had to find the perfect angle for the tv to pick up the remote controls signal. The balcony was the highlight of this room. About the same size as a regular balcony but closed up around the bottom so you can dangle your feet out. The life boats sit right above the rooms so they block the sun so the balconies stay pretty nice and dont get to hot. Balcony has 2 chairs and a little table so you can sit back and have a bite to eat and somewhere to put your drink. This room is right next to the main atrium elevators so its a very short walk, and we never really heard much noise being right under the main atrium. Read entire member review >>
Had a cove balcony (2334). Loved the closeness to the water. The life boats above were not an issue at all. They did provide shade most of the time, which was fine as I am not a great sun worshiper. There was a little water on the floor on two mornings but I believe it was from washing the deck above and not spray from the ocean Plenty of room and storage. No problem with noise being next to the elevator. The area to the right was a storage area for luggage carts and such. Did not hear anything from there either. Would do this cabin again.

We were in room 2382 cove balcony.
Did not realize we were right below crimson dining room. Oh my gosh it was so loud all the time. Loud clanging and sounds of metal being dropped all hours. Smokers using the balconies beside us making non smokers retreat to their inside staterooms Read entire member review >>
The rooms are great! The cove balconies are the only way to go, I will always ask for a cove room from now on. I always have 4 people in my room and it is quite comfortable. You don't want to spend much time in there anyway, you might miss something! There is a "sewer" smell in the hallways, but we got used to it and tried to overlook it. Nothing is perfect. Read entire member review >>
I don't remember our exact cabin, but we had a Cove Balcony room, mid ship. It was very nice and plenty of room for me and my 3 children. People talk about cruise cabins being small, but I felt like we had plenty of room and it was very comfortable. We loved the balcony and being so close to the water. Read entire member review >>
Cove Balcony - 2353. Perfect layout for family of four. One Queen bed, one single bed and a pull down single bed from the ceiling (a Pullman). Very roomy bathroom/shower, plenty of closet space (with lots of hangers) and drawer space. Nice size balcony. Very, very close to elevators. Read entire member review >>

We had a cove balcony on the port side of the ship about midship. We like sailing lower and closer to the middle of the ship because i suffer from vertigo a bit anxd we have found that these rooms lessen any seasickness. The cove balcony is wonderfully private. We were in cabin 2342. This cabin was just around the corner from the midship elevators and stairs and just a short walk down the hallway in either direction to reach the forward or aft elevators. Our cabin was very quiet and had no issues with noise or smell such as was experienced on the starboard side. We would definitely choose this cabin again. Read entire member review >>
We had a cove balcony on the 2nd deck, relatively close to the water. Plenty of closet space, nice bed, and the balcony was slightly larger than regular balconies but not much. The balcony was very private. Despite being underneath the gallery/dining rooms, I never heard anything. We both slept well.
It was very convenient to our dining room and the promenade deck for shows. Elevators were readily available although we usually walked up to the 10th floor when going to the Lido deck. We never used an elevator when coming down stairs. Read entire member review >>
I really liked our cabin (2357, Main Deck, Cove Balcony) I was impressed with the amount of closet space, although I wish there had been a few more drawers. The layout seemed great, even in a quad room. We had enough space. The only challenge was our toddler constantly grabbing everything down off of the shelf (toddlers.. what can you do??). Our older son LOVED the upper berth, he could not wait to sleep in it every night. Our toddler did well in the single sofa bed, which was pretty roomy.
Our King bed was extremely comfortable. I loved it and slept really well. So well that I am considering ordering the Carnival bedding that is available online. The bathroom had a lot of storage and the shower and water pressure exceeded my expectations. Read entire member review >>
Cove Balcony 2254 is perfect location - just below the Shore Excursion desk so no worries about noise from restaurants or galleys. It's behind the elevators and there's an entrance to the hallway on either side of where the cabin is located so you didn't have a lot of traffic even though the cabin is so near the elevators. Easy access for getting on and off the ship, close to Crimson dining room, Encore lounge, Lobby bar, and Fun Shops.
For western Caribbean itinerary, port side is best for watching the port activity, and this cabin is located close to the gangway, so perfect for people watching. Read entire member review >>
Room is in an amazing spot. Balcony is awesome and it's so quiet. I believe its under the Shore Excursion on deck 3, but we've booked a room in the same area two years in a row, and haven't heard one sound from above. The hallway is usually very quiet as well since it's about 10 doors down from the elevator. Read entire member review >>
Great balcony, nice size room. The bed was awful, very hard. the room location was awesome one floor down from dining room and the show lounge. Mid ship so less swaying and rocking during high seas. Read entire member review >>
Cove balcony 2256. Lovely and private. Nice spacious room with lots of wardrobe space. Comfy bed and clean efficient bathroom. Very quiet, and very near everything so that apart from going to the top of the ship to the serenity deck, we could walk to the dining room, encore theatre, and the other areas of entertainment just by going down a few steps. Easy for embarking and disembarking at ports too. Highly recommend it. Read entire member review >>
We had a cove balcony room and loved it! The rooms were bigger than I expected. The decor was pretty and the rooms were always clean. There are 3 closets in each room which is great. We were right across from crew space but it wasn't noisy at all. We loved everyhting about our room. Read entire member review >>
The Cove Balcony cabins were very nice. They seemed to have more storage space in shelves and drawers under the couch. Quiet location and the balcony is 10sq feet bigger than the regular balcony cabins and that makes a big difference. When 2 balconies are opened up, you have a great space! The closet space is pretty much the same as other cabins. I would get a Cove Balcony cabin again! Read entire member review >>
Cabin 2330. It is an adjoining cabin and had we had bad neighbors this could have been a disaster but our neighbors in the locked off adjoining room were another young couple on a romantic trip so it worked out perfectly. Did not experience noise from above or below us. One morning my balcony coffee ritual was ruined by a smoker in the cabin to our right on the balcony. I really feel like smoking anywhere NEAR cabins should be banned. This only happened once though so not a big deal. Cove balcony is amazing. We had great views everywhere we docked. Read entire member review >>
Cove seemed bigger then the other rooms we have had before I think it was the lay out that made the difference. The life boats are right above you which is nice because it allows for shade when the sun is on your side of the ship. Read entire member review >>
Great midship spot, close to elevators but not so close that you get noise from them. Also, the laundry was on the other side, so we avoided that noise. On our 5th day, which was a sea day, people were in the laundry all day long, even hanging out in the hallway, so I would stick to the even numbered cove balconies in the future for that reason. Read entire member review >>
COVE Balcony #2283. Best cove, near the stairs/elevator (no noise noticed),Cabin is over the gangway, makes for an interesting view during sail-aways. Room is near the front of the ship, no motion noticed, We have had several balcony rooms in the past on other ships but this was better. Will choose this cabin for future cruises. Read entire member review >>
Our Room, 2250, Cove Balcony: I read that people really like the cove balconies and now I understand. This was a great room, fantastic view, and a great location. 2250 is the second most forward balcony room on the port side of the ship. Pretty close to the water and on the last day it was catching plenty of sea spray as we hit rougher waters. But being so close to the water, it was nice to watch the flying fish shooting out of the churning waters of the ship. Also, as it was on the port (left) side of the ship, we had great views of each port we docked at while starboard (right) is looking out to sea. The bathroom had plenty of shelf and counter space so a shoe organizer was unnecessary. But for the four of us, it was a bit cramped while getting ready for dinner, but that was the only time since all we did in the room was dress for dinner/departure in the morning or sleep. Overall, we will get a cove again if possible. Read entire member review >>
COVE BALCONY (Room 2329):
Great mid-ships location on the starboard side! We never faced any of the ports. Being close to the water line was awesome! The sound of the water and gentle mist of the ocean is absolutely refreshing. The shade provided by the life boats above is NICE (definitely not a drawback what-so-ever)! It was great reading and relaxing on the balcony for breakfast. There is nothing better than enjoying a carafe of coffee in the morning with the sun coming up on the horizon. Being low and in the middle helped my wife sleep better on the rougher days/nights at sea. There was plenty of room for four bags and our mountain of clothes. Our room steward was super-friendly, very accomodating, and new our schedule to the minute. Room service delivered when requested, never a minute too early nor late. The only drawback would be the sewer smell in the hallway (NOT IN THE ROOM EVER) on the days we were in port. It was stinky, but it never entered our room. I believe it has something to do with dumping and refreshing the waste water tanks while in port at secure waste water dumping locations. Read entire member review >>
Lots of closet space, great balcony, in the Aft part of the second floor, which was quiet. Small shower, but nice bathroom. Great steward. Amazing views when you dock at an island Read entire member review >>
We had one of those cove balcony rooms and it was awesome to be that close to the water. We heard the waves froth, had a wonderful breeze to escape to and the cove style offered plenty of privacy. Room size is just a little bigger than typical inside rooms. Read entire member review >>
Cove Balconies close to the front of the ship are the BEST for watching the waves! Try to get one that does not have a connecting room to assure more privacy. Be prepared, however, for early morning noises from doors slamming and work outside the cabin with lifeboat maintenance. Read entire member review >>
Loved the Cove Balcony. The cabin was larger than others we've been in. Love the privacy of the Cove Balcony. Only thing is you could hear other guest allowing the doors behind them to slam. The balcony stayed wet where the ship was rinsed off each day in port but hey that was ok, just wear your shoes out there. Read entire member review >>
Our Cove Balcony cabin was great! It was larger than what we are used to on most ships with a nice sitting area as well as their ever so comfortable queen sized bed. We especially liked the proximity to the ocean. Read entire member review >>
The cove balcony was more private than any other balconies on the ship and had a low to the water view that was different than other cabins. The views from most cabins wasn't much different than the views from the decks, and as spectacular as it was, every person on those rooms only got that view. We got both the low to the water views (where we saw flying fish, turtles, and maybe even a dolphin). The room was modest sized, but large enough that we weren't cramped for the short amount of time we actually spent in the room. There was tons of storage, and the bathroom, although small, was bigger than we heard other ships ones were. Read entire member review >>
Love the cove balcony - private, close to waterline. We heard the ice machine in crew space across the hall two mornings, otherwise quiet and peaceful. Nice size cabin and bathroom, plenty of space and storage. Read entire member review >>
Our cove balcony was a great value. We were on deck 2 and close to mid ship. It was no problem getting an elevator. We also could walk up the stairs to the Encore or restaurants on deck 3. It was quiet. I have absolutely no complaints! We loved our room. Read entire member review >>
Our Deck 2 Cove balcony room was well designed and very comfortable! the
bathroom and shower are larger and work well! The downside is the doorway and
hall are so narrow now, you have to turn the trey sideways if you get room
service(no big deal) The cove balcony is somewhat dark and closed in with
Lifeboats above and steel all around you. it is however the most private balcony
available on the Dream and very close to the ocean (about 40 feet above the
water) This was OK except for the last night when we drove thought a 50 Knot
wind storm with huge waves! Read entire member review >>
Cove balcony cabins are a good experience together with privacy,shelter and great views... but we found noisy neighbors and those that smoke can be down sides
Cabins in Deck 1 and 2 (Only those in Stern and Aft sections) will have loud noise and vibration from thrusters when entering and leaving ports.
Cabins have tiny bedside table but with no drawers for supplies etc. Read entire member review >>
