Just OK : Cabin 8459
Sail Date: May 2017
Aft cabin is no different in size but an enjoyable experience. Would not pay for it again, been there done that. Should try it though. Room steward Ida was great! Read More

Cabin is laid out well. All was good except our shower and sink drained very slow. The room steward was excellent if we needed extra towels or anything. The departure terminal in Galveston is ok....nothing fancy. The ship is beginning to show its age, but the crew was always friendly, seemed happy, and the food service was very good and the tables/eating areas were always bussed immediately. Read Less

This particular cabin (7442) is smaller than the other 6 o 8 cabins on the 7th floor aft. Never could figure out why but was missing a sofa that the other cabins had. Always love a balcony and being able to sit on the deck. Read More

I looked for a review for this room before we left, so I am happy to provide one for you. I was surprised at the small size of the room. It seems most rooms are long and narrow, but this one is smaller. As I said before, we didn't spend much time there anyway, so it turned out to be just fine. There were 2 beds as one - comfortable pillows and bedding. There is no sofa - just one chair by a desk opening. The rest of the room has features like any other - 2 hanging closets (bring hangers as they provide some but not enough for me) and one closet that has 3 shelves. There is plenty of room for shoes. There are 3 or 4 small drawers by the desk for small clothing items. Your empty luggage will easily fit under the beds. The bathroom is small - shower is small -- but they are the same as the other regular rooms. The balcony is called an extended balcony. It does feel larger than the balcony on the side of the ship. In 7447, you are next to an 'aft wrap around balcony' - which gives you a great wide view but also a good view to the right side of the ship. There is not a strong breeze on the balcony, but I was always comfortable (except when the sun was shining hot). Because you see only what is on one side of the ship from a regular balcony, I really like the openness of the aft balcony and will do that again. I will likely try for the room with the wrap around balcony because their stateroom is much larger! Read Less
The Food? Great! : Cabin 7451

Our room was nothing special but clean and functional. As mentioned, the connecting balconies with our friends was fantastic. The many bars and public areas were very tasteful, as opposed to the old Joe Farcas loud designs that we have heard about from other friends who cruised older Carnival ships. Our cabin was always meticulously cleaned by our cabin attendant and she was always unobtrusive. Read Less

We always try to get the aft balcony because they are oversized. Nice option when the decks are crowded and you want to just get away from the noise for a while.
