Inside 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.
The cabin was clean and we had plenty of space to store our clothes and luggage. Moving around space was tight, but since the time we spend in our cabin is when we are getting cleaned up or sleeping overnight, it worked well for us. We had two adults and two teenagers. The teenagers slept on the upper pullmans which were set up for them during nightly turn down service. The location was excellent for access via elevators to the public areas of the ship on decks 3, 5, 8+. We never had to wait long for an elevator on the ship anywhere. The Sea Day Brunch was just one flight of stairs above us. The only noise we experienced was an occasional kid in the hallway (not often at all), and the only time the ship noise scared me was when we got back in port in Miami and we were turning around in the bay. Our cabin shook for about 5 minutes as we turned around. Read entire member review >>
Interior cabin, size as expected; did not have beds which could be lowered from the ceiling. It was dark. Not quiet due to some unruly, drunk guests nearby during sleeping hours most nights. No need for a nightlight as the hallway light shone around the door frame. When will Carnival replace the dated, goofy nightstands with the built-in, conical-shaped lampshades?

Seriously, don't get a cabin back in this area. I had to stuff paper in between every surface in the room to stop the horrible noises at night. Even the paintings on the wall had shook lose from their frames. Read entire member review >>
We had a inner cabin, mid-ship on the Rivera deck. We did not care. We were only in there to sleep and shower. The beds were comfy, the room was clean and even with 4 of us in there, we still had room to move around. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was small; the bed had plenty of room underneath for suitcases. Closets were more than ample for clothes and whatnot. Furnishings were sparse. Only chair or settee, was one tucked under the desk. The room was in good repair. The bath was standard issue. The room always impeccably kept. Enjoyed the towel animals. Read entire member review >>
This was an accessible cabin that I couldn't get my mobility scooter in to. When the steward was asked to set the beds up so it could be brought into the room, he refused. I had to moved the beds so the scooter could be brought in and out of the room and the scooter was parked in the bathroom at all times. The cabin was 6 doors down from the Amber Palace, during showtime you could hear every word that was said, sing along with the songs. When there was an 11 p.m. show, forget about going to bed before midnight. Many tiles in the bathroom were cracked and mold and mildew was forming. I did find out that originally this cabin was an employee cabin with four beds in it. Seriously!!! Read entire member review >>
As this was the first time we have cruised, we have no particular expectations regarding the cabin other than from the photos online. When we first opened the door to our cabin, we were glad that it was like the photos. Clean and cozy, we were able to settle in quickly.This particular cabin is at the front of the ship and on one of the lower decks. As such, as were able to hear some of the machinery at night. We could also feel the ship moving through the waves while we were sleeping and that added an interesting touch while sleeping. Read entire member review >>
For our first cruise, we wanted to be in the inside. The room was big enough for the two of us. We just pushed the twin beds together, and by evening, the steward made our bed up for us as if it was a queen bed! It was so nice and quiet in our room. We did not even know IF we had neighbors! There was plenty of closet space and hanging closet space. Bathroom had enough shelves for our toiletries. We used the mini-bar as a fridge and locked our passports and extra cash in the room safe. For our next cruise, we would like to have a window! Read entire member review >>
We loved our cabin. We were on Deck 1, Riviera. We were about 3/4 of the way down towards the aft. We had a cabin that had 2 double beds that we had converted into a King. Plenty of room for what you do in your cabin...sleep, shower and change clothes. Plenty of closet and drawer space. Could have a LITTLE more counter top space for things you buy, etc. but no problem. Efficient use of space in the desk and TV area. And it had a mini bar.
We were concerned about possible engine noise prior to the cruise. It was never an issue. We heard a very low hum that never changed pitch the whole time - perfect to fall asleep to.
The hallways can get noisy. But just like hotels, you can't manage kids running down the hall at 2:00AM. we never heard anything from next door cabins, above or below us. Read entire member review >>
Being on the first floor was handy for disembarkation at ports as well as access to the main public areas on decks 3,4 and 5. It was a little less convenient to access Lido, however. Read entire member review >>
