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. Oceanview stateroom with twin beds that convert to a king.
Our cabin was small, but comfortable. The bed was mostly comfortable, though the King was actually two Twin mattresses put together. Not great on the seam.
Only one power outlet next to the desk (two if you have a converter plug for European 220), and one switched in the bathroom. Cycle your charging! Windows could use a washing, too.
Cabin Steward, Michael, was fantastic! Always attentive, and good for a conversation when we meet him in the hall. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was located aft, and while it was showing some wear, it was in good condition overall. This cabin has one upper bunk, and an unobstructed ocean view. It is very quiet, and located at the end of a long hallway. Read entire member review >>
Not sure what category my cabin is in. It was towards the back of the ship on the Upper Deck (6) but have no complaints. The beds were very comfy and enough room for 2 for the amount of time we spent in there. Read entire member review >>
Handicapped room. Beds situated better than other cabins. Several of the handicapped items in the room did not work although we did not need them: open and close of cabin door, positioning of bathroom light switch. Cabin not meant for those that get motion sickness. Read entire member review >>
Cabin more than suitable for two persons.Late booking so had not much choice but would have chosen not to have third (bunk) bed even though it was folded up. Bathroom more spacious than one would expect.Air-con seemed noisy but poss due to age of ship.Would with hindsight have opted for interior cabin as cheaper and we did not on this occasion have choice of balcony cabin which is always best if funds allow Read entire member review >>
Cabin is like they look in the pics on the site. Bed, desk with 3 drawers and stool, two small side tables, a chair. 3 small closets, and bathroom with serviceable shower. Robes and shampoo and soap provided, no other amenities. Bed is kind of hard, but there is another comforter in the closet--just put it over the mattress and it helps. Window is super dirty--kind of ruins the view you paid for in an OV. Absolutely LOVED the location! Mid-ship/aft with no staterooms across from it for about 4 rooms down. Also next to a closet used to store things but not used once on our cruise. VERY quiet! This room does have another bunk that could be used if you have a third person, and it can accommodate 4 with a trundle they provide if you have 4 people. There is a safe in the closet that you can work with your S&S card. Room stewards were great, never even knew they were there but everything was cleaned perfectly every time I opened the door with a fresh bucket of ice. No refrigerator-- but if you're diabetic and contact the cruise line before you go, they will place one in your stateroom for your insulin. If you have sleep apnea--be sure to bring an extension cord for your mask. Also if you're diabetic and take shots--tell your room steward and they'll bring you a sharps container. Little known tip-- instead of paying for the bottled water they leave in your stateroom, just ask your room steward for some distilled water--they'll bring you about a gallon of it for free and leave it in your room. If you need more, just ask. Read entire member review >>
Room has adjoining door to cabin U58 and was very loud. Depending on who your "neighbors" are on board, you can expect to hear most of their conversations quite clearly and may want to consider that while having conversations in your own stateroom. Read entire member review >>
Cabin U226 on Carnival Imagination:
Location was great for us. Not in a high traffic area. It had a great view of the wake off the back of the ship. No sofa in the cabin, but that didn't bother us. We rarely use the sofa anyway. Bathroom was quite small (as on most cruise ships)but the shower was a decent size and the shower head was great. All in all, very nice accommodations for 4 nights! Read entire member review >>
Room: We booked E244 aft oceanview. We were told it was a little larger. We were really surprised at how clean and comfortable it was. I still brought Clorox wipes and wiped surfaces down. I checked for bed bugs and found everything spotless. The pillows and comforter were down with a nice duvet cover. The bathroom was spotless as well. There were 2 nightstands, a chair, and a small stool that was under the vanity. There was also 3 large closets with plenty of hangers and 4 large shelves. Zaw, our porter was discreet but very helpful. We did give him a tip at the beginning of the cruise and he made sure that our ice bucket was always filled, our towels replaced, and our bed always fresh. He remembered our names and called us by name every time we saw him. He and the room was wonderful. Above us was the crew smoking area so we did not hear any noise except one morning. I wasn't sure where it came from though. There was some banging and I did hear some talking. But again don't know where it came from, but it didn't last long. The shuddering that I had read about in aft cabins was very nominal. We did feel some slight shuddering and rocking, but it was like being in a low vibrating bed. We missed it after we left. We slept like babies every night. The ship tv had a few local channels and 2 movie channels. The only few downsides were that there was no clock except for the tv and there was no instructions for the wakeup call. I called the front desk and there was no answer. Note: your cell phones will not work for clocks because for some reason they go all crazy even on airplane mode. The ship slips a day planner and agenda under the door each day and the night before departure with the debarkation procedures included. The other was that the potable water to brush your teeth and face was disgusting. It left the worst aftertaste in your mouth and it smelled terrible. I ended up using bottled water to brush my teeth. Cabin was near buffet area and serenity deck. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was okay. Seemed a little smaller than what we are used to. TV was difficult to work in that the channels seemed all over the place. We like to watch the ship shows on TV at night over and over and over. Also, could not access dining room menus on TV as have been able to on other ships. Cabin was clean and in good condition and comfortable. Phone auto dial buttons did not work. Tried several times for wake up call and any time we used one of the auto dial buttons it always dialed Medical Emergency.
Our Cabin Steward Kevin was very nice. Did not see much of him though. Read entire member review >>
We had a category 6C Oceanview. The size of the room was adequate but the curtains were extremely dusty. The location was fine but the hallway was noisy during the night with other passengers. We did find the bathroom a bit small as we are used to the bathrooms in the larger ships. Read entire member review >>
IMAGINATION STATEROOM M65 OCEAN-VIEW Mid ship.
Quiet location, great view up an down the ship.
NO support bar in shower if you need one.
NO clock in the room, but there is a ships clock on the Carnival TV channel.
NO hair dryer in this cabin if you need it.
Would like SHIP MAP included in either bathroom basket or the desk binder.
Closet shelves can be dropped if you need additional hanging space.
1 outlet in the main room. Pack a small power strip if you need it. Read entire member review >>
