Great cruise! : Cabin E202
Small compared to other ships. Poorly set up with little space for things! Was clean and bedding/bed was comfy

Honestly, this was the smallest cabin that we have ever sailed on (about 7 cruises/ 2 cruise lines). I'm happy that they renovated the ship to add balconies. I don't think ours had one before the renovation and it was a standard balcony. In our other cabins, we have had a couch...no room for a couch here. So whatever the normal length of the Carnival couch is, that's how much shorter your cabin is. We had 4 people in our room and it said that you couldn't have a King bed, but that's what we had. You'll also have a berth bed that hangs over your heads and another one that almost overlaps your feet. If you have the two berths down and need to get to the balcony, you'll need to hunch over and crab walk to that side of the room. If your family spends most of their time out then it's no big deal, EXCEPT if you wake up in the middle of the night. Yes, you will bonk your head, if not getting out then getting in when you lay back down and forget how far out the bunk hangs. Good news, I only have 1 bruise left from the 3 times I banged my head. Our biggest room complaint was that the bathroom smelled like urine. After housekeeping was done, it would smell fine but about 10 seconds after you flush, you'll notice a strong urine smell. We mentioned it to housekeeping, but it didn't get better. Our room/bathroom was very clean so we were baffled. I was at the airport and ran into another person who was also on Deck 6. She confirmed that they also had the same issue, but her other family members on Decks 4 and 5 did not. She ended up taking the shampoo from the shower, mixing it with water, and pouring that mixture into the toilet bowl after every flush. She said that that cured the issue, so maybe that'll help you too. The TV is terrible (grainy lines), but you don't cruise for the TV so that's okay. We could definitely feel and hear the engines when they were on, but if you need white noise to sleep and like being rocked sleep, then you'll love it. It was pretty quiet otherwise. There were some under closet lights that helped illuminate the way without turning on the main lights which is great if folks come into the cabin late at night. Housekeeping was always available and did a really good job. Read Less

We had a balcony cabin on the main deck (starboard side) which was an excellent choice as we chose to have room service breakfast every morning on the balcony whilst watching the ship dock. We docked on the starboard side at every island apart from San Juan. Our steward was great. I loved the different towel art each evening. The room was much better than I was expecting with plenty of storage space. The bed was huge and very comfortable. It was lovely to have the balcony. Saying that, I wouldn't have wanted to have more than 2 people in the cabin. Read Less

The cabin is OK and well maintained for the price and age of the ship, but this balcony staterooms were originally window ocean view cabins. Beds were designed to go against the window. Balconies were added years later and the beds were rearranged. Now the room look smaller and the fourth upper bed block the access around the double bed and the balcony. It was very difficult and uncomfortable for four people to live in it for a week. To make it an even bigger challenge, I’ve notice that every time I go on a cruise, communicating with the staff gets more difficult, and it took my steward three days to understand that we were requesting to close the upper beds during the day so we could walk freely around the stateroom.

We had 2 adults and 2 teens in our room. The shower seemed larger than interior cabins but the room itself was about the same. Because we had a balcony, one of the bunk beds was directly above the queen bed...translation we hit our heads multiple times! It was great to have a balcony to watch people board, get some sun, and watch the waves and islands pass by. Read Less
