Cabin U74
Apr 2017
This was our first grand suite and the extra space, walk in closet and larger bathroom were wonderful! However, only having once a day housekeeping was a definite disappointment. The rollaway bed , set up next to the couch took away most of the extra floor space we were initially excited about. The room is centrally located near the elevators. The bigger balcony was a big perk (3 seats and a small table) my daughter and I spent a lot of time enjoying it. We also enjoyed watching the passengers that were late arriving back to the ship in Nassau!

Great staff, old ship ! By: happyatsea2323
The cabin was very clean and everything was in order. Mon, our stateroom steward took great care of us and we never had to ask for anything. He and his team are amazing! We loved the large balcony and enjoyed the extra space. We usually just book a regular balcony room but we were celebrating our wedding anniversary and booked a jr suite and then were upgraded to a grand suite for a very small fee. It was well worth it!

Bad Boat Experiences By: adam238946
Not as pictured on Carnival's website! Stained carpet, dirty shower cap left in room, two twin beds pushed together and different heights, short shower, old fixtures, small tv, and a random hose spraying you with water on your balcony.

Cabin V11

We were offered an upgrade from a junior suite to a grand suite about a month before the cruise. We took the upgrade and were very pleased with the space that we had and the layout of the suite. We enjoyed the balcony but for such short amounts of time that it was probably unnecessary for us. We did not stay in our cabin for more time than it took to sleep, shower and take quick breaks during the day. We will do a cabin with a window in the future.

Cabin U80
Apr 2015
This cabin has a whirlpool tub, large bathroom, a large bedroom area and a good size area to sit and relax. The balcony was the biggest one we had in all the cruises. The balcony is separated by either steel or solid color glass. It has a great bar if you are into having liquor in your stateroom. The decor is a little outdated, but looked great. If you are a light sleeper, bring earplugs. You will hear people on level 7 going through the hallway. Surprisingly, a lot of them run through it. It doesn't quite down till about 11:00pm.

Pleasantly surprised By: denvercocruiser
nice size bathroom, great walk in closet with full length mirror, and great sized room. Dated decor, perfectly adequate. Nice balcony, loud and heavy balcony door! Lousy at night from folks running in halls above, but not a huge problem.

Cabin U88
Nov 2012
Our cabin was A LOT bigger than I thought it would be. I would say it was the size of your standard motel room. The closet was big enough to fit the crib inside, so our son had a nice quiet place to lay down at night. We pulled the sliding door almost closed when we laid him down and then opened it all the way up when we all went to bed so it wouldn't get too stuffy. This was very helpful since he went to bed at 7pm each night. The balcony was also HUGE. All 4 of us could stand out on the balcony and not get in each others way. The only complaint I have is that the divider didn't go all the way to the floor, so the cigarette smoke from the cabin to our right kept blowing over to us. It ran us inside sometimes. There is also a glass half wall that separates the king size bed from the couch/sofa bed. If one person is sitting at the head of the bed and talking to another person sitting at the top of the sofa, it is hard to hear one another. I can't think of any reason for this half wall other than decor. The bathroom is very spacious and the water is HOT, HOT, HOT!!! There are signs that warn of scalding and they aren't kidding. I guess it's better than never getting hot. We were very pleased with our Grand Suite and are now forever spoiled and will probably never want to be in an interior room ever again.

Large oval couch and chairs can easily seat 10 for entertaining in Grand Suite. Plenty of storage space. Everyting worked great. Ocean view and interior rooms were fine - clean and comfortable.

Wonderful Cruise! By: Pollywog72
We were in GS U102. We were almost directly mid ship. We had a nice size bathroom with whirlpool bath plus a shower. We had plenty of closet and drawer space. 2 twin beds that convert to a king size. The beds and linens were very comfortable. The Carnival robes were so nice! Our balcony was my favorite part of the whole ship. We had a nice large couch that folded out into a bed. We did not use the couch as a bed, because we only had 2 in the room. There were at least 2 different outlets in the room, and the temperature was controlled by a lever in the vent in the ceiling. We never heard a peep from our hallway or neighbors. I would love to book this cabin again.

Carnival Elation 10/14/10 By: Heidi the Red
Our cabin was fantastic! I appreciated the walk in closet and the many outlets for all of our gadgets. I always travel with a power strip but didn't need it. The room was very comfortable and, mostly, clean. (We did receive "complimentary" left over muffins in our fridge. ick.) It would have nice to have a mini-bar in the room to put all of the glassware to use! My travel companion was a first time cruiser so she does not appreciate how special it was to have a bathtub. I had heard other guest complaining about being unable to regulate the temps in their room but we were always comfortable. I do not know if that was our steward at work or just their bad luck.
