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.
Everything was clean tidy and the A/C was perfect. The only complaint was a couple of cold showers in the morning but it was a matter of timing hot water ran out. But they took care of it promptly. We had a great time with our large deck and blue tooth speaker. Was a great place to watch the sun rise and set. The seas were very calm and the area was quite. There was a bit of noise from the deck chairs on the lido but nothing to lose sleep over. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was the normal size and there was plenty of storage areas. The shower enclosure is small and I am not a fan of shower curtains since the shower overflowed a few times. Often the water would not go above warm even when set at 50. The balcony looked large but because the railing is angled inwards there is actually about 3 feet of unusable space. It did hold two loungers and a chair. VERY NOISY AT NIGHT. I don't think it would matter which cabin you were in with the music and partying going on. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was pretty standard. Not Disney, but nothing is. I loved the aft view, but MAN was that balcony hot. Stifling, brutally hot. I was August, so it's hot, but there is absolutely no air movement and no shade. I like the concept of aft balcony, but won't book it again. Location is very convenient to dining and adult pool.

Very good cabin. Good size balcony. Third bed is great albeit a sofa in disguise. As big as a proper single bed and comfortable. Aft view cabins on deck 8 have much more room than the aft view cabins on decks 7 and 6. 8 cabins along the back on deck 8. 10 cabins along the back of decks 7 and 6. No noise heard from the pool machinery room which is located at the back but would point out if you booked the middle two rooms on the aft, you would suffer as they are directly opposite the pool machinery room
Not as soundproofed as previous cruises we have been on with other lines but we had good neighbours both weeks so no problems. Read entire member review >>
This cabin is really noisy and has constant vibration.
It has a TON of room inside. Even a small table w 2 chairs. King bed. Wrap around deck with a lot of windows.
you are subject to those above you. Could be good, could be bad. Read entire member review >>
Deck 8 aft-facing cabins don't have as much "extended" balcony as lower decks. Cabin 8461 is directly across from pool machinery room, and there is a constant sound of valves and pumps--not too loud or obtrusive, but audible. Read entire member review >>
We had an aft stateroom with extended balcony, #6489, extended being deeper than the usual balconies. Very roomy. We had friends in the stateroom next door and the steward was able to open the divider door between the two balconies. We had a pre-sailing party of 12 and everyone was able to comfortably fit on the two respective balconies. The room was clean and well stocked with glasses, towels, and complimentary toiletries. Because of the room configuration, the entry way from the door to the inner cabin is very narrow, basically wide enough for the closet doors to be opened, or the bathroom door to be opened, if the closet doors are closed. The rest of the cabin was sufficiently roomy, had a bed, desk, table, chair and ottoman but no couch in our particular room. The closet and other storage were very adequate.
