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 SuperLiners all feature staterooms above ocean level for a more comfortable cruise.
The room was extremely hot. The thermostat was all the way down/open but if I ever came on this ship again, I would avoid this room. From time to time there were chairs being dragged on the balconies but that was most likely another guest, not carnivals fault. The room was fairly spacious and had three closets.
For some reason the hot /cold temp in shower was also messed up. I was taking colder showers bc I was hot all the time, and then my son got in and it would not get hot. The next day the same thing happened to me. I was taking a shower to get ready for dinner, and I had to take a cold shower.
I would not stay in this room again. Read entire member review >>
Typical Carnival cabin. Great room stewards. Small room but with a balcony. Loved having a balcony. Balcony had 2 chairs and a small table. Room had a fridge and only one outlet. Be sure to bring a power strip with you if you are on the Glory. Read entire member review >>
We typically choose this category and deck, so no surprises. Everything you need is provided EXCEPT no hair conditioner. The shampoo and shower gel is in a wall mounted dispenser in the shower. Quality is terrible - shampoo doesn't lather up and feels like dish-soap. Shower gel a little better but still bad quality. Will definitely bring my own next time.
Heard chairs being moved, but didn't bother us too much.
Great location overall. Close to stairs/elevators and main parts of ship. Read entire member review >>
They were very clean and seemed to be fairly well maintained (my coffee table was wobbly). They decor is somewhat outdated, but that really didn't bother me. My cabin was initially cold. I determined throughout the trip that on the days we were in port my room would become uncomfortably warm. Closing the balcony drapes did seem to help a bit with this though. Once the ship was underway again, the air conditioner would work better and my room was always more comfortable in the evening. Read entire member review >>
The cabin, 8347, was good and well kep by our room steward. However, the location is a drawback since its door opens directly to the passageway for the midship (aft) elevators. There is a supply room right across the room where the room stewards get and store their cleaning supplies etc so there is constant noise outside the room and it sounds like they are attempting to come into this room. Plus the inconsiderate passengers who get off the elevator and stand outside this room and yell up and down the hallway to their friends about where they will meet and what they will do tomorrow. This is definitely a room I would choose for myself again. Read entire member review >>
adequate size and storage. Dirty windows, dirty toilet flush button that never got cleaned. Carpet in poor condition. Bed - sofabed were not as described - there was no sofa. Read entire member review >>
Room was as expected, plenty of storage and ample closet space. LOVE having balcony, don't think I can ever cruise without one, now that we have been spoiled by balcony on last two cruises. Happy to have refrigerator in room, did not have one on past cruises. Wish there was more than one outlet in the cabin, hard to keep everything charged - will definitely bring power strip next time. Room stewards did great job keeping room clean and was attentive to when we left so room was always cleaned right away. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was very nice and plenty of room. I loved the balcony. I guess you can get a bigger balcony but ours worked great for us. I am not sure what kind of balcony it was. But it was on the 7th floor. We were close to the laundry and that was great.
There was a shower and no tub but we didn't need it.
Over all the rooms were a place to rest and were very clean.
The beds were very comfortable. I was surprised because usually hotel beds are too hard for me. We had a king size bed and our son had a single. Read entire member review >>
We had a balcony midship... I'm not sure of the letter category. There was not much extra noise even though it was near an elevator. However, there was extra noise from the deck above. It is located in a very convenient spot, so it's a trade off. Read entire member review >>
Nice enough. Free upgrade to balcony! But it had not been cleaned thoroughly. One of the two mattresses was well past its end of life (I have a picture of the hole in the middle), but I could not convince my wife to request a replacement by the time I figured out why her back ached. The walls transmitted sounds from next door with very little attenuation. I am so glad we had a cabin next to the quiet bridge so we only got noise from one side. I am a big fan of sex, and I appreciate people with different sexual proclivities, but hearing homosexual sex whenever we were in our cabin was a bit of a turn-off. Read entire member review >>
Pros: Spacious, clean, wonderful balcony, quiet most times
Cons: A rule about roaming kids and teens without parental supervision must be put in place (especially about children in rooms away from their parents - not a good idea). Read entire member review >>
Beautiful cabin, great balcony. Loved waking up and sitting outside just as sun is coming up. We had two teens in addition to two adults in the one cabin so it got a little cramped, but it was completely expected. Read entire member review >>
This was a port side, forward balcony for 4. Storage was adequate, bathroom was big enough, bed was comfortable and the balcony was a nice size! The outlets were too few as mentioned in prior reviews. Overall a very nice place for 7 days. Read entire member review >>
Cabin: 8201 on the Veranda deck. This is the first cabin right behind the starboard wing bridge. Picked this cabin because I thought we might see a bit of the bridges "going on's", and was not disappointed! Great view of the navigation station and very interesting during docking. You can see through the wing bridge so the forward view from the balcony is great. It was fun exchanging nods and waves with the Captain and crew every day. Was very impressed with the size and layout of this cabin. We didn't come anywhere close to filling up the closet and cabinet space. The amount of shelving in the bathroom did not disappoint. Everything worked as it should have and the decor was pleasing. Read entire member review >>
6469 stay away from. Clean and comfortable but the noise from the bars one floor down will keep you up all night. I like music, but this was a vibration that was terrible . A loud bass noise. Read entire member review >>
Great room overall in the cabin and the bathroom. Plenty of closets and drawers to stuff things. Tip: have the mini bar emptied by your cabin steward and use the fridge for medicine, water and beer.
Beds have to be adjusted to your likeness. Ask steward for egg crates under the mattress and be aware there are two beds (cots) pushed together for a double/queen so there is a middle and sometimes the two beds do not butt together on the same plain. Towels were well worn and they do give you two beach towels to take on shore, just don't loose them as they are $22 each. There is a safe in the room as well. TIP: you can bring on none opened water and soda and one bottle of wine, carry on not checked luggage. Read entire member review >>
very close to elevators and Amber Palace showroom, but very far from Platinum dining room which is where you are if you have assigned dining times. you can faintly hear the noise from the Amber Palace, but the shows don't run late. overall it is a great room. Read entire member review >>
Garish, adequate, enough space, ready for an update, good (almost too bright) lighting, good storage, nice TV, mattress firm and needs replacement, few outlets- needed extension cord for CPAP machines, quiet location. Public decks handy using stairs, but aft location required walking to most ship activities, disembarking, eating, etc. Read entire member review >>
We had a balcony room, as is our usual preference. The room itself was rather plain, with a regular door and large window to the balcony instead of the usual sliding glass. I prefer the sliding glass, but this presented no real problem. What was disappointing was the couch and the bed, especially the bed! Both were terrible, but I found it difficult to sleep on a bed that was comparable to lying on a table. I complained to our room steward the very next morning, and for 2 more consecutive mornings, but nothing was done until I went to the customer service desk on day 4 when they were finally able to come up with a pad that made it more comfortable. The same pad that my room steward said was not available.
The couch was just as uncomfortable and not suitable for watching TV. I had noticed that some of the passengers had taken to using the deck chairs in their rooms. The bathroom was small and the shower was minuscule with a shower curtain instead of glass doors and I found the hairdryer being outside, attached to a drawer an inconvenience. There was plenty of storage space, the room was clean and the towel animals a nice touch. Read entire member review >>
Would have been better if the couch and bunk weren't always made into beds but instead having a couch to use would have been nice and having the bunk up would have given more head room and less head bruises! We were right above a club but it didn't bother us but at times it was loud. Little space to put 4 suitcases due to couch cushions being under the bed. Balcony was lovely in port, and while the sun was out despite the constant wind. Got great moon pictures from it! Read entire member review >>
Closets are perpendicular to the cabin door and you could clobber the open closet door with the cabin door or the bathroom door. Plenty of storage space. Bed was comfortable. TV is a flat panel but not a huge one - ABC, NBC, and CBS along with some cable and paid movie channels. Bathroom was adequate as was the shower. Right under the food on Lido - gotta love it.

Larger than expected bathrooms and showers. Our friends were in a cabin in the 6353 or 6357 area and they said their room was directly above where the band in the casino played. We were in 6339 and 6343 and thought the cabins were perfect. Read entire member review >>
Hallway was too noisy outside cabin 7359 due to steward stations. Please enforce or increase smoking rules and limitations. More hangers in closets, please! I've been bringing my own. Read entire member review >>
Our bed was horrible. You could see the lumps in the bed when you walked into the room. There was no cuddling on this cruise because the mattresses were so worn. Both my husband and I were forced to sleep in the well worn groves of the pushed together twin beds. My experience on my last cruise was you could barely tell that the bed was two twin beds pushed together.
This room is also across from the laundry room. Overall, the noise level was not too bad, but on our last sea day, the noise was noticeable. Read entire member review >>
Next to a room with a family that had a crying child. We could hear the child, the mother yelling at the child and another child slamming the balcony door and yelling out on the balcony every morning. This is next to a room that has extra beds so maybe families frequently get this room. Read entire member review >>
The Cabins space was much better than we experienced on any RCL ship.
Great bathroom shelving. +++ The beds were very comfortable and clean.
We could NOT enjoy our balcony due to a Cigar smoker on our left and Cigarette smokers on our right! Even though we requested a non smoking Cabin area. Read entire member review >>
We went to our state room which was a balcony on Verandah. Room 8268. This room was prime location! Right near the main atrium elevator and right by Lido deck. It is sandwiched between two room floors so we heard no lido deck activity but were close to EVERYTHING! The room was plenty big enough and very clean. The balcony was prime location and wonderful!!! Lots of closet and drawer space and decent size bathroom. Our room steward was Luki and he was fantastic. Read entire member review >>
Carnival Glory, 8352 - port-side, mid-ships, balcony cabin on the Verandah deck. Location close to the mid-ships elevators and stairwell, and laundry room. Only 1 deck below Lido deck which was good and bad. Good because it's convenient to all the food and activities on the Lido, but bad because it's directly below the outdoor dining area of the Red Sail restaurant, and we would hear chairs scraping the floor and being slid around above us all during the day. The noise wasn't nearly as bad at night, though, after the Red Sail finished serving dinner. Read entire member review >>
Great balcony, lots of room, nice bathroom. Cabin was under the red sail dining room so day and night you would hear carts being rolled around overhead. This was distracting, but overall it was a good cabin. Read entire member review >>
