Oceanview stateroom with a window 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.
Nice cabin but I wish I had booked one of the Jr. Suites for the balcony. We usually book an aft-facing cabin which gives us a slightly larger balcony than the rest of the ship. An oceanview is ok but there is little room for just relaxing in the cabin without the balcony. Other than that, the ship had gone through an upgrade last year and the interior of the cabin and ship was in excellent shape. Read entire member review >>
Nice cabin. Plenty of storage. The cabin was very cold with no wall thermostat. You could stand on the bed and turn the button, but that was already set at the warmest.
TV worked good, all stations Miami based thru Direct TV. Body wash in shower very pleasant. Did not use shampoo. Disappointed that there was no sofa in this room. Thought we had a sofa in this category before. Read entire member review >>
Nice to have an ocean view, but I found I was really only in the cabin a short time. I felt like the room was slightly bigger with more space to move around than an inside cabin. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was fine, but again, well used. The shower didn't drain properly, it was like the plastic pan had warped and no longer sloped to the drain. The toilet clogged multiple times (we spoke to other guests who experienced the same thing) even with light use. Read entire member review >>
The cabin oceanview window was not a porthole it was an actual nice size window. The boys enjoyed being able to see out the window. We had bunk beds and a single bed in front of the window. There was plenty of space for us. Read entire member review >>
"Poe" was our cabin steward he was Excellent! Maintained our room, great job, the place was Clean as a whistle. Constantly cleaned it for us and was perfect! This was so good we booked another cruise with our kids to come with us next time; looking forward to more Great times! Read entire member review >>
We happened to be on the Empress Deck 7, just down the hall from the glass elevator, where the central little bar is, and the Shore Excursion desk, and Guest Services. Noise from there was fine, but it was the students running up and down the hall at all hours that was awful. Read entire member review >>
Although small, the cabin was adequate for the needs of two friendly adults. The storage space was plentiful. The furnishings were spartan. The bed was not uncomfortable and the lighting was convenient. There was no climate control in the room with the exception of regulating the air flow from the overhead vent. I was pleasantly cool, but I think most people would say it was chilly. The bathroom is tiny, but has adequate shelf space. The desk in the cabin is the place to lay out your makeup and brush. If you have a lot to plug in, bring a power strip. There was only one outlet on the outside of the bed. This cabin had only a shower and the hot water would scald you at its hottest. There is no foot rest in the shower, so be prepared to bend and twist as space allows. Shower gel, shampoo, and robes are provided, but bring your own hair dryer. This cabin has a large window, but it is fairly crusted with salt spray. I didn't see or hear automatic window cleaners on this ship which have been around since long before this ship came on line.

Our cabin was U118. The cabin was clean and was plenty of room for the two of us. We didn't feel cramped at all. The bathroom space could have been a little bit bigger but was adequate for what we needed. We could see out the good sized window but wished it was a little cleaner on the outside. We did understand we were out to sea and it comes with the territory. We were in a quiet and central location. I've already booked the same room on my next cruise. Read entire member review >>
Ample closet and storage space. Bed and linens were very comfortable. TV screen was a little small. Windows need cleaning. Decor was nice. Bathroom was good size - water pressure could be better. We were in E222. Convenient to Lido deck and buffet. Did not like that 2 of the aft elevators were in luggage mode for most of the last 18 hours and one was out of order. That only left one elevator for the aft cabins. Read entire member review >>
Cabin E159. Great cleaning crew! Dirty windows outside. Average size room for 2 people. Plenty of storage. maybe add some more hangers. Add more electrical outlets overall.
Fantasy is absolutely confusing. You can't get there from here. You have to go up stairs to go from Jubilee to Celebration, and then down the stairs again to the same floor at the opposite side of the ship.
Cattle Call outside of Jubilee waiting for it to open. Maybe let people wait in Forum and/or Majestic Bar rather in hallway and up and down stairs.
Also, not enough seating in Lido Dining Hall. Maybe publicize Celebrations open dining more for Breakfast and Lunch. People may be not aware that dress is more casual for those meals. Read entire member review >>
Spacious closet, renovated bathrooms are very nice but low water pressure. Great mattresses, pillows and linens. These may be the oldest cabins in the fleet but they sure do not look it (or smell it). This cabin, midship, feels little motion which is great in rougher seas for those who don't like motion (like my wife). Read entire member review >>
Ample closets, tiny dresser drawers, and tiny bathroom. Quiet location. Great room service and housekeeping staff are superb. Easy location as it is the same that you embark and debark on. Read entire member review >>
Well our cabin had the electrical outlet in the bathroom set to the 230 VAC setting which I didn't notice before I tried to shave so naturally I lost my Norelco shaver.
Other than that the painting on the wall is upside down.
No faults other than that. The Fantasy is a wonderful ship. Rooms are pretty well quiet, as this room is directly under the Celebration Dining room and empty after 10 PM. Read entire member review >>
Tiny room with nice window ocean view, out of date decor (didn't like the color- but that is minor). The bathroom was tiny with not really any place to store your bathroom necessities, but we worked it out. The room although tiny, provided closet space for clothes and a table with a nice lighted mirror to put on makeup/get ready for dinner. The comforters and pillows were SOOOO COMFY!! The TV had great reception and we got more channels than I thought we would! Our room staff was great, catered to our every need, and of course, made towel animals and left chocolate every night! We had 2 pull down beds, which made it VERY tight to walk around, but really, we did not spend much time in our rooms since there was always so much to do. Read entire member review >>
A little smaller than we had expected but not to bad for two people. Closet and drawer space was really the biggest issue. While it is a older ship, we found the cabin to be comfortable, the bathroom and shower were clean and the shower was awesome. Close to Elevators! Very comfy beds!!!!! Read entire member review >>
Our cabin, U92, was setup with twin beds, one along the ship's centerline and one athwartships. This was actually a good layout. There was plenty of room to move around. My wife was able to sleep in the athwartships bed and avert being sea-sick while sleeping. The shower was the bomb! Awsome pressure. The beds were very comfortable. Read entire member review >>
I thought we had a great cabin location on Empress. The room was small but we didn't spend a lotta time in there. Good closet space but no drawer space, we lived out of the suitcase. I thought it would be noiser because we were near the public areas of Empress, but we heard more running in the halls by guests (probably kids) than anything going on in the lobby area. Overall it was very comfortable & I'd choose this cabin and location again. Read entire member review >>
E110 liked being on the port side for this trip..cabin had plenty of room and was attractively decorated. Nice midship location helped when we had some rough weather. Good location midway down the aisle for easy access to the shore excursion area or the Celebration dining room. A little trickie trying to find your way to the Jubilee dining room! I would choose this quiet cabin again. Read entire member review >>
Location of our cabin (E175) was awesome. Right near the elevators but you did not hear them. The elevators took you right up to the food! Didn't feel any rocking and wasn't noisy but it was dirty and dated. Read entire member review >>
