Clean and fairly comfortable. We liked having the port hold to let in natural light, without having to pay a lot more. The main complaint (mentioned above) is that there was only 1 outlet in the room. Between hair dryers, straighteners, charging phones and Kindles, it was a constant struggle to prioritize who got to use the outlet. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was spacious and clean. The bathroom was a little cramped but that seems to be pretty standard for a cruise. There were multiple closets to keep clothes in as well as several sets of drawers. The porthole was pretty dirty and you could barely see out of it, but it was nice to have the light in the mornings.

The room is nice. It is all the way at the front of the ship. The hall area is quite. I choose this area because there is no traffic. No hall in front of our room for people to walk by. The porthole windows are nice to have. The 2 twin beds put together to form a king. The mattress is comfortable. The room has a vanity, stool, chair, tv, 3 closets, shelving, hangers, room for suit cases in the closets. The bathroom sometimes smelled odd. The bathroom floor is squishy - very odd. Water from the shower leaks out onto the floor. They have covered the floor with the same blue material that is in the bottom of the shower. All water goes through the drain and seeps under the floor which makes it squishy and sometimes provides an odd smell. We were not in the room enough to care; but if you spend a lot of time in your room, this would not be the room for you. Read entire member review >>
We were pleasantly surprised with the cabin. The storage is enough, the bathroom sufficient and the bed very comfortable.
Only when we neared Mexico, we actually felt that we were at sea, the rest of the time the sea was so calm, we could not believe it!
Ivan was a star here with looking after our cabin! Read entire member review >>
This is our new favorite cabin in the fleet. It's tucked away up front and very quiet. The portholes are in a recess in the wall which mutes the light coming in which is really nice.
We have done the grand suites and the hot tubs and the penthouses and the balconies and all that crapola...we don't need it. All we need is a nice, clean, cute little room where we can sleep and hang out when we're not roaming the ship. This is the perfect room for a couple. Read entire member review >>
This room is surprisingly well laid out and we did not feel cramped at all. The porthole cubby provided more visual space, as well as shelf space, and we absolutely enjoyed staying in this stateroom. (And I'm typically a balcony-needy cruiser!) Downsides: If you want to shave your legs in the shower, this just won't work. Not without a great deal of dexterity and flexibility, as the shower is a simple stall. There was absolutely a faint smell of sewage in this cabin from time to time. I had brought some febreeze and sprayed it occasionally. This did the trick, so if you get this cabin - don't forget some air freshener or spray so you don't have to smell faint poo.

Front, port side, porthole cabin. Close to elevator, and main theater, but very far from food.Nothing in the Lavatory works correctly. toilet does not clear everything, Sink lights are burnt out. No glassware. Hardly any storage space. Sink stopper when activated, will not release. Don't turn shower up to 50 degrees, you will not be able to turn it back to a normal temperature. Other then these inconveniences the room was ok. A bit small. No refrig. No ice bucket. Little storage space. But comfortable. Some sound from thrusters when docking. Occasional wave sounds hitting the sides. 2 Portholes give good light and vision. Read entire member review >>
Room small, porthole nice, at end of hallway, little to no noise from hallway. Ship only noisy when pulling into port one morning. Could definitely feel the boat rocking, which we like but obviously could be bad for others. Could put our suitcases in the platform to the porthole. Enough closet space for the two of us. Would book again. Read entire member review >>
Plenty of storage space, but you need to bring a mesh shower caddy that you can get at the Dollar General Store. Sometimes it sounds like people are doing aerobics or bowling in the hallway above your room. It is an interior price, but you have a view through the portholes. Being in the front of the ship did not bother us at all. It really did not have any additional movement than our previous midship cabin. Read entire member review >>
Very spacious for a solo traveler. Very comfortable bed. Sparsely furnished - chair and stool but no sofa. Plenty of closet and storage space. Clean, and kept that way by the stewards. Carnival still supplies bathrobes, and they're nice and plush. Beach towels were replaced every day - if you're traveling by yourself, you still get 2 of these in the cabin. Bathroom is small but efficient with good water pressure and a really REALLY blue rubberized floor. The combination of the portholes and the shape of the ship made a really neat window box to sit in and read. You can also close the porthole covers if you want. Read entire member review >>
Fantastic cabin for a solo traveler - same size as all other Carnival cabins, has the twin/king bed configuration (unlike the 1A's), and is priced as an inside. I paid $84/day. Very clean and well kept. Plenty of storage. Even though the cabin is forward, I didn't feel any more motion there than at other parts of the ship. Nice and quiet. Bathroom had been redone and looked "new" but very little shelf space and the usual clinging shower curtain. I'd definitely book this cabin again. Read entire member review >>
Nice cabin. It's a bit of a walk from the elevator/stairway, which also means there is less traffic outside. The portholes are small, but it's nice to see outside without paying for it. Read entire member review >>
Now listed as inside cabine on all Fantasy Class ships, the port hole cabins in the bow of the bottom 3 decks provide lighting and kept of from feeling claustrophobic. Not real good for actually seeing anyting. We called them "Beer Goggle Cabins" Read entire member review >>
