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.
The cabin was great! We split the beds apart since we were friends traveling together. My only complaint would be that the shower was a bit hard to find the "hot" water spot. But, I finally figured it out. Read entire member review >>
Located under the theater, the sound does carry, so if you head to bed early, be sure to keep this in mind should you get this cabin. The cabin isn't all that huge, but it had enough storage for the two of us and our suitcase fit easily under the bed. There's no hair dryer or refrigerator, but there is a safe. The shower is supplied with one small cake of soap at the sink and both shampoo and body wash in the shower. We never saw our steward except late one morning as we were coming back from breakfast. I can't remember his name, but when he saw what cabin we stopped at, he greeted us both by name. How do they do that? I can't remember what I had for breakfast, let alone the names of a steady stream of passengers. He kept our room clean with twice-daily service. Read entire member review >>
The cabin has plenty of space for 2 people. My room had 2 twin sized beds, that could convert into a queen if you ask your room steward that is assigned to your room. There are two mini night stands, a chair, a vanity with great lighting in the cabin. Plenty of closet space.The bathroom was a good size too. The sink and toilet were full sized. The shower was the best. The hot water came out hot really fast and you could even adjust the hot water to hotter if you prefer. The water pressure is great; really strong. I wish I had that here at home. The cabin was clean. They clean your room 2 times a day. There is one electrical outlet in the room. You can take a surge protector on the ship if you have multiple devices that you need to plug in. I took a surge protector to plug in my Flat Iron and charge my camera phone and regular camera at the same time. There is an AC but I did not see a heater. Fortunately, it did not get too cold in my Ocean View room. My room was at the very back of the ship and the view was spectacular. There was no complimentary water in my room. However, there was a 2 liter of water in my room with a purchase tag on it for 3.75. I wasn't going to pay for that so I called up for room service to bring me 2 glasses of ice water every night. Overall, I was very happy with the cabin. Read entire member review >>
We like Upper Deck (6), it's very quiet. We also prefer cabins toward the aft, and this was perfect. Close enough to the elevators on either side, so we could take a "short cut" depending where we wanted to go. This room has an adjoining door to U153, which works really well for us. We saw dolphins out our window, really couldn't ask for more. Read entire member review >>
The room was comfortable and roomy, there was plenty of closet space and storage for our 3 night cruise. The shower was decent sized and the bathroom was laid out well which helped it not feel too cramped. The room steward and his assistant did a good job of taking care of our room. We didn't see much of them but our room was always cleaned or beds turned down as expected. I felt our room was well located and quiet without a lot of traffic with the exception of the last night when some of our neighbors seemed to be having a party in the hall at about 2 AM.

We stayed in cabin 14280 a great room. I had a great balcony. It did have an over hang so no sun. When it rain the balcony never got wet. We had 3 in our room and the couch pulled out into a bed. We had a enough closet space and suitcases fit under the bed. We had enough spaces to put all the clothes. With 3 in the room thought it would be tighter then it was. The rooms are small anyways. The only things bad was that we never seen our cabin girl. On other cruises they would see you walking down the hall and have your door open for you by the time your reached the room. Over all would recommend this room. Read entire member review >>
E16 is in a good location, you get to see a lot of the crew as they seem to move around in this area to get back stage as the lounge is one deck above. The only real noise is from the thrusters that you can hear as they fire up when entering and leaving port if you are in the room. Read entire member review >>
CABIN: E61 Ocean view mid shop. For location purposes, I was just off the Atrium and right near the elevators. It is located just under the FUN SHOPS to no noise from above at night when they are closed. The only drawback is there seemed to be a little more than usual traffic being right off the Atrium and near the MAIN glass elevators. I would take this stateroom again for convenience, but would opt to be a little farther away from the MAIN ATRIUM if I could. The stateroom itself is same size and shape as a regular ocean view cabin No Fridge, but I knew that. Typical stateroom, 2 beds that convert to a KING, SAFE, 32" flat screen TV, water and soda to purchase in the room. Two robes hanging in the closet.
Conveniently located on the same deck as the laundry room if needed. My suggestion is to do any ironing LATE the first night and get it over with while it is empty. I was in and out in 10 minutes ironing a couple shirts and touching up pants. COMPLIMENTARY BATHROOM BASKET which the items always switch so no need to list what I got. Shower: Shampoo & Liquid Soap (I brought shampoo w/conditioner, a travel Lysol spray & my preferred bar soap). The room itself appeared to be in great condition. Clean and kept.

Our rooms were on Empress, Upper and Main decks. All ocean-view and absolutely nothing to rave about. It did take a day or two before we found the air condition controls -- which were located on the fan in the ceiling. The room had no mini-fridge and no storage in the bathroom. We had to repeatedly ask for ice and cold water in the room even though temperatures topped 100 degrees. Missed having places to sit when people came to visit -- as we had just 1 chair in the room. Also, our room remained un-serviced until after dinner on two of our four days. The towel animals each day were nice, but skip the chocolates -- they are not worth the calories.
Even though this was not an "upscale" cruise, we were hard pressed to understand why -- no fewer than 4 of our staterooms on different floors had "clothes" from the previous guests left in closets and drawers when family members arrived at their rooms. The biggest complaint our group had was the lie Carnival told us about "Trundle Beds" for the 3rd or 4th guests in the cabin. Since we had families sailing -- 1/3 of our group had a 3rd or 4th person in their room. We were told that a Pullman or a Trundle bed would be in the stateroom, but 7 months in advance they could not tell us which rooms had which type of beds. We arrived to find the "Trundle" was actually more like a pallet with a mattress -- approximately 1" off the floor! We were very upset to find out that the price paid did not even warrant a roll away! Read entire member review >>
Room U65 - a 6D category ocean view room:
This room is very quiet, but still located in a convenient location. There is plenty of storage space. The beds are wonderful. The view is great. The bathroom is small, but that is standard for a cruise ship. It is actually larger than some other cruise lines. The shower was great. One problem was there is absolutely no cold water, not even cool water. All you get is warm, if not hot. I don't know if this happens to every room. But, just a heads up. Overall, a great spacious well maintained stateroom. No reason not to book it. Read entire member review >>
E39 and E43, somewhat small rooms, connecting door, oceanview. The view was good, the doors stayed open easily. The bathrooms were good size, the updates were nice except they needed more shelf space. Beds were comfortable. Read entire member review >>
