The Junior Suite was great, we were the very first cabin at the front of the ship and there was a public deck about 12' from our balcony, it really wasn't that big of a deal, but I would've preferred a little more privacy. Being at the front of the ship did not seem to affect movement as compared to being middle or aft. Our room steward was great as always, he asked if we wanted service am or pm, and we said we wanted both and it was not a problem at all. The actual size of the room to me, seemed to be the same size as a regular balcony room on other Carnival ships, but the Fantasy doen't have regular balcony rooms. It's either Ocean View or Junior Suite to get a balcony, Lots of storage, we did bring a power strip and extra hangers. Read entire member review >>
This was a great cabin to stay in. For being considered an "obstructed view" cabin you still had a great view with just a simple cable in the way. The cabin was spacious and comfortable and the balcony gave us a wonderful view every morning. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was nice and clean. We were impressed with the size and amount of space we had for our clothes. The bed was a little firm, but overall was not bad for a nights sleep. The balcony was great for sitting outside with a wonderful view of the ocean/port without all the noise of the normal decks. Read entire member review >>
Spacious n quiet. Plenty of drawer and cost space. Not the best quality body soap and shampoo but was fair. Very clean and comfortable. Didn't hear neighbors unless on balcony. The furnishings showed some wear but still very pleased with accommodations. Read entire member review >>
Awesome! Loved the trim and our Steward kept it spotless, even bringing towels 2-3 times a day! Found it to be quiet at night without lot's of movement. Certainly convenient to elevators and Lido Deck. We believe the Bathroom was a little bigger. Read entire member review >>
I can only speak for the V-17 balcony that we had on level 11. The room was very nice for a balcony. The actually balcony matches the width of the standard balconies, but is very narrow in depth. It is only about three feet from the door to the railing. It sits high up above the rest of the ship. The four balconies on either side towards the center of the ship have obstructions due to life boats. V-15,17,19 all had good views with little obstruction at all. A bonus, these rooms have a lot of privacy since they are in their own little area. Very little hall noise! Nothing above or below to distract you. The flat screen TV's are fine, plenty of storage, great lighting, and decent size showers. As most know, Carnival's rooms are generally bigger than matching categories on other lines. Outlet under TV and one under the mirror light. Read entire member review >>
V17- Tiny, SEMI- private balcony. The deck below was in full view. There was barely enough room for the 2 chairs and a small table in between.
No hair dryer. No clock. Plenty of hangers and space for more. 7 drawers for other clothes.
Lots of noise, like wheels rolling on the floor above, well into the middle of the night. Read entire member review >>
Don't waste your money on a suite....Balcony is SO SMALL you cannot sit in the chair and fit your legs between the chair and the rail. You have to turn your chair sideways to sit. We stacked ours to one side and at least 3 people could stand comfortably at the rail and look out. 4 could fit but BARELAY. The AC did not work properly and they checked it twice but said there was nothing they could do....We are paying for a suite and had to have an electric fan to keep from sweating in bed????

A little smaller than what is in the pictures, but slightly bigger than a standard oceanview. It was our first time with a balcony, and the balcony was SMALL... so small that the chairs had to be turned sideways if you wanted to sit in them. We love the idea of a balcony, but for the rates they were charging, this wasn't the way to go. Read entire member review >>
Spacious. Great view. Balcony is a bit narrow. Quiet halls with little traffic. Mini fridge. Has wine glasses and drink glasses. Plenty of closet space. Minimal drawer space. You can feel the rocking of the ship more due to being near the top floor. You can hear people dropping barbell weights above you in the gym. Read entire member review >>
