Oceanview stateroom with a private balcony 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.
Typical aft balcony cabin. Little to no vibration. Very minor squeaking noise across the ceiling when the AC turned off. There is no couch in this cabin, rather a small round table and one chair. The entry door is in the corner directly next to the door for the wrap cabin #7445 the both but up against the corner so you may hear some noise from them coming or going. Biggest complaint was the BLINDING bright lights shining down from Lido directly onto the balconies on decks 7 and 8. It made the balcony unusable after dark, which is a big reason we book the aft. Very disappointing. Contacted guest services about it and was told it was "part of the architecture of the ship" and could not be changed - whatever that means. We will not book an aft on 7 or 8 on this class of ship again. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was standard. We had plenty and room and storage and the aft balcony was nice as it provided more room for us to relax. On the first morning we had to ask our steward to clean soot or ash that had fallen and covered the deck and chairs. Didn't see it again after the first morning. We were curious about the papers we found tucked into the ceiling and after the first night we understood why. The trim work around the ceiling rattled all night long. We tried to add more paper to buffer the vibration but it didn't work. My husband slept through it fine but I never got a full night of rest so I was exhausted for the entire trip. Also, the walls are very thin. On the last day of our cruise which was an at sea day, our neighbors decided to try a little blue pill. It worked because we heard their screaming for over an hour.

The chair in the cabin was broken and had to be replaced. In addition the curtains were torn, the lampshades were damaged and the bathroom was not cleaned properly until the 2nd day of our cruise. Read entire member review >>
We liked the three closets. There was adequate storage for two. Wish they could have black out curtains on the windows and door. Too much light coming in. There was a slight vibration in this cabin, especially in the bathroom. This was probably due to the fact that this was an aft cabin. Read entire member review >>
7447. Corner balcony in back of ship. Loved it. No complaints. Nice size balcony. Two chairs and one lounge chair. Sometimes wind whistled through balcony door. However, we stuffed paper into lock and stopped whistling. Only complaint. Read entire member review >>
Great room, plenty of space, good size balcony with two chairs, table and a lounger. Bed was very firm if you like that. Only downside was it was super windy so the air was making loud whistling noises all night waking me up several times. I thought at first it was just a bad seal around my balcony door but we asked our friends staying in a similar room and they heard the same. The second night I just propped the door open and slept like a baby. Read entire member review >>
This was an aft balcony....loved the view and the over sized balcony! We asked room steward to switch one of the regular chairs so that we could have two loungers and he did the very first day. BUT the negative was the vibration....the movement itself was not the problem the noise in the room was. I think every picture rattled and everything on the counters rattled. My husband nearly went nuts! Loved the location though....one elevator ride or a couple of flights to lido, or promenade! Read entire member review >>
Best cabin in our price range. Beautiful views, two chairs, and a chaise lounge. Wish they had a privacy curtain though- daughter slept on convertible couch and dressing was a little uncomfortable. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin, our first aft balcony, was great (6456) although we really didn't spend much time at all there. Of special note is you CAN hear the lounge below (all aft balconies could I'm sure) during certain a few times but never after 12:00. Also, there is a good amount of vibration from the propellers. Not so much that it kept me awake. There was a day of "larger" seas and the aft does move more than say a middle room. I like the motion but others could be distracted. I said to my other, "now it feels like we're sailing!"
Of note about Glory is there was a noticable "smell" in the hallway around cabins 6430. Not on the starboard but only that port hallway area. We were glad we didn't have a room righ near 6430.
We also noticed a "kitchen" smell in our cabin and it was on our embark and disembark days in Maimi. Other times it was no problem. Weird. Read entire member review >>
