Oceanview stateroom with 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 SuperLiners all feature staterooms above ocean level for a more comfortable cruise.
This was the first time we went Oceanview instead of balcony. with so many ports, didn't think there would be much balcony time and I was right. I actually liked the layout of the beds in this room better than we have had in the balcony rooms. The beds were situated more like an "L" and so it wasn't like we were breathing on each other (we are a Mom and son(20) traveling). I think our bathroom had been updated, but it didn't have the large magnifying mirror on the wall (which I missed for applying makeup) and this was the first time there was no blowdryer in the room in all our 10 years of cruising (you can ask for one at Guest Services). This was a pretty convenient location as it is midship. Read entire member review >>

We booked ocean view cabin E34. There is no loveseat in the room but there is a desk with 3 drawers, a stool, a chair, the standard closets and no mini-fridge. The most disappointing aspect of the cabin was no counter in the bathroom. We have grown used to this with balcony cabins. It could be worse. At least our toilet faced straight forward and no pipes burst. Yay! The cabin has two beds that convert to a king and the Pullman bed that we never use since it gets in the way and I think it can be unsafe. Somebody is bound to bump into that in the middle of the night.
The cabin location is pretty noisy and busy. The atrium is a few doors down but that is not the main source of noise. The deck above is. We could hear music from the shows in the theater above us. That did not really bother us much since we knew the noise was finite. They also moved the live entertainment from the atrium and the theater to the back of the ship at night which makes it quieter at night. I am not sure of the source but we could hear chairs being dragged, people running, and what sounded like a deck door being opened and closed at all hours. The noises were more sporadic on port days. We slept well so the noise was not enough to keep us up. I am not sure we would choose this location again, only because it is so close to the atrium and is so busy. Read entire member review >>
Mattresses needed changing. They were worn out pretty good from overuse and that was a big disappointment since Carnival usually took pride in their bedding. Room was ample size and the bathroom was probably a bit larger than I expected. A/C worked really well. Not having a refrigerator was something that I was expecting but it would have been nice to have one in the room. No blow dryer but I did not need one since I keep my hair short.

I have stayed several times on the 6th deck upper and this is was the first time I have a complaint about my cabin. I am still upset and. Rey disappointed about the cleanliness and the lack Of care they showed my and my daughter. One thing I would expect Carnival to pride themselves o. Is the many guest and return guest that support this cruiseline. I very displeased. Read entire member review >>
No complaints. There is a storage room adjacent, but we only heard noise form the room twice. The cabin is very convenient to the forward elevators and we didn't experience any noise issues from that. The only issue of note is that debarkation at ports and on the last day crowds the hallways and stairs right outside the room. The noise at those times can be a bit much, but I would think is only a problem if you're trying to sleep in. It really didn't bother us.

Our teen sons stayed in this room. It was very quiet, clean, ample space. No issues. Read entire member review >>
We had a room (M57) with a nice window view, two wall beds, two twin beds pushed together as a queen and a trundle bed on the floor. It was a bit too small for us (2 adults, 3 tweens) so next time we will probably get two rooms. Also at night, with already being cramped, the cabin got extremely hot and it seemed like the ship turned off the air condition in the cabins when docked at the ports. So you may want to bring a fan if you can. Read entire member review >>
M65 - Ocean View, Main Floor, Aft
Window is a square window, unobstructed.
Closet has 3 doors - 1st houses the safe and two shelf spaces, 2nd has hanging space and a bottom shelf, 3rd has hanging space and bottom shelf.
Bathroom - small, but good layout (linear) with sink across from door, toilet and towels to the left, shower to the right.
Bed(s) - You can have 4 singles in this room or a king with 2 stow-away beds (which we did). It was the first time we had the stowaway bunk-beds in a room, and I was nervous before the cruise about the space, but it became a non-issue. The stow-away quite neatly, and although jet out a bit into the room, it didn't take away too much space.
TV - small TV in the corner near the window. Sufficient.
Other - Mirror and desk combo was sufficient (3 drawers, a stool, large lighted mirror). 1 chair and two small stool/tables added extra seating. Read entire member review >>
Pros: Ample space, very clean, fresh. Large closet, can fit suitcase(s) under the bed easily. Bathroom area sufficient. Very accessible to laundry area (iron's, washers, dryers) Walk from room to main stairwells very easy.
Cons: Dirty window on the outside. Light shines from the hallway underneath the door. We used towels at night to block it out. No refrigerator. Read entire member review >>
