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.
This cove balcony stateroom was great! It's an adjoining room with 2370 so you may want to be travelling with others that you know because you can hear some slight noise from that room even with both doors closed. If you are wanting to try a cove balcony, this ship has plenty and they are awesome! There was very little noise from the galley above. I only noticed it because I was listening for it as I read other reviews stating that it could be noisy. To my surprise, it was not noisy at all :-) Will book a cove again if on the Magic.

We enjoyed our cove balcony room. Although perhaps smaller than the rooms on the upper decks, the cove balcony provided several benefits. First of all, the life boats hang on the deck above the cove balconies. This acts as a sort of sun shade making spending time on the balcony very enjoyable. Our room was below the galley, which did cause some early morning noise, but nothing that was too distracting. Being on deck 2 also made it convenient to use the stairs to the dining rooms and indoor attractions. Getting up to deck 10 and above did require using elevators, which was sometimes annoying.

LOVED the cove balcony! After our last cruise with a free balcony upgrade, we swore we'd never go back, but this was even better! Location of room had NO excess noise from other areas on the ship, even when docking. Balcony offered great privacy, shade during the day, beautiful view of the water, and the ship's bulkhead offered a perfect footrest for those of us with shorter stature :) I like that the twin sleeper sofa had bolster cushions we could put on during the day and actually sit on it comfortably. Bed was bigger than our queen at home! Read entire member review >>
We had a cove balcony - 2248 - and our in-laws had 2315. Both were fabulous. Shaded from the sun, much more private, and close enough to the water that you could sometimes (but not often) feel the spray. I adored it and spent a good bit of time out there—I highly recommend cove balconies to the people-abhorring introverts out there.
I didn't notice a smell at all. That was one of my major worries before the trip, and it turned out to be a non-issue. Read entire member review >>
Awesome! Well secluded. There was not a life boat over us! Some noise from the kitchen around the clock but fan I brought blocked it out mostly. Would use this room again, close to elevators and little walking to lido buffet, dinning rooms, tides pool and bar and spot light lounge. Read entire member review >>
We stayed in one of these rooms on the Breeze and loved it. I prefer them to the standard inside staterooms because the balcony is very peaceful.
I don't have any major complaints. Everything is pretty standard. The TV works, the shower is hot, toilet flushes.. only problem we did seem to have was that the lights wouldn't turn on sometimes unless we took the little paper out and put it back in. Whether that's true for all rooms or operator error, I don't know. This room is halfway between the aft and mid elevators so getting to dinner was quick, but getting to the forward parts of the ship took a bit longer.
Even though this room shows as being under the galley, we never heard any noise from it. We never smelled anything funky, either, in the hallways or otherwise. Read entire member review >>
the cabin was kept very clean and the bed was heavenly. It was the most comfortable bed I had slept in (besides my own). We had plenty of room to move around and more than enough storage. I wasn't really sure about the cove balcony, but I liked being that close to the water and not looking down on someone. Read entire member review >>
Good size room and spacious balcony especially compared to the rooms on Norwegian. loved being close to the water and the balcony felt much more private being close to the water. Read entire member review >>
Very quiet and private feeling balcony. Love the coves! Temperature was nice and cool, which is important to us. Our steward was so sweet...one night he left us four towel animals! Read entire member review >>
I know that there are a number of complaints about this type of room and the noise from the galley. I'm not going to say that there was no noise - because there was. That being said, it wasn't that bad. It's not like I was up all night because of the noise or it really disturbed me at all. I had an early dinner (so i was in my room once in a while during late seating) and there was some general chair scraping type noises or a loud bang here or there.
I sleep with a fan on, maybe that drowned some of it out.
There was noise. But it wasn't all night. It wasn't disruptive to me. I also had the rooms on either side of this one (2342 and 2346). 2346 is adjoining and my two youngest (6&7 yrs old) were in there and they weren't bothered by it all. My son and grandmother were in 2342, and while they also heard the noises they weren't bothered by it either.
The cove balconies are very cool. The luxury of a balcony room without the cost! It's also under the life boats so its rarely sunny but a nice luxury of being able to get some fresh air and let the kids watch the ocean as we sail.
I'd definitely get this type of room again if I had the option. Read entire member review >>
Our room was 2373 and what a BAD choice that was. All night every night we heard booming and scraping of chairs or tables from the galley. We complained but was told there were no more rooms to move us to. It seems like they could just not use those couple of rooms or put extra insulation in to protect the noise level at the wee hours of the morning and late at night. They returned a small portion of our money but the noise all week made for nights with little sleep (and I can usually sleep anywhere.) Other than the noise we enjoyed our Cove Balcony room and the nearness to the water was great. Our steward was so sweet we wanted to bring him home with us for a neighbor! Noervi was helpful and kept everything perfect and tried to help with room noise. Read entire member review >>
The balcony was fantastic, I love sitting out there in the afternoon or evening, away from the noise and crowd, just watching the water. We saw porpoises in Galveston, jellyfish, and TONS of flying fish. So cove balcony, A+!
Note: If you want to be able to relax and see the water, get a cove balcony and not one of the upper ones, IF the ship has both. It turns out the upper balconies look down onto a deck of people, with that deck and life boats blocking the immediate view of the water below where we saw most of the animals....PLUS those same people can stare up into your balcony. We were VERY glad we got a cove balcony after we saw that.
now for the cons:
The room itself was nice. The service was nice. We enjoyed snuggling in bed in a slow sea day afternoon and watching a movie on the movie channel on TV.
BUT....we got random food smells at odd hours of the day, sometimes so strong we had to prop open the balcony door to air it out, or leave entirely becuase we felt sick to our stomach.
The first day we had an extremely strong smell of spices. So strong it was making us feel sick. There was then herb chicken another day......fried chicken the next...it was horrid, we don't want to be smelling food all day long, especially food that might disagree with one of us.
Also, the vent in the room rattles horribly. Sounds like a chattering squirrel. And it's grated off, so we couldn't do anything about it but stare at it in the middle of the night trying to will it with the Force to stop rattling so we could sleep.
We were under the dining room, i think, but they seemed to do a lot of moving chairs and jumping up and down for work outs or SOMETHING in the middle of the night as well.
over all: I recommend a Cove Balcony, i do not recommend this room in particular Read entire member review >>
Have had 3 balcony cabins on the Carnival Conquest, but this was our first cruise on the Carnival Magic and the first Cove Balcony we've had. It was very nice! Especially since the balcony cabins on other decks of the Magic overlook Deck 5 rather than the water. Maybe nice for people watching, but not ocean view watching. But with the Cove Balcony on Deck 2, your downward view is just water. Wonderful! True, the upward view is the lifeboats, but they do provide shade and provide a sense of privacy. Saw dolphins alongside a few times.
Cabin 2273 is the first Cove Balcony on the starboard side. It is near the forward elevators/stairs, but its toward the end of the hallway so very little foot traffic/noise in that direction. Actually, a very quiet and peaceful cabin that is very convenient to the Showtime theater, and all the forward areas (Northern lights restaurant, photo gallery, Atrium, etc). Kind of a hike back the buffet, but burning a few calories doesn't hurt! Read entire member review >>
My first cruise and now I know better to check to make sure this room is not located underneath the galley. All night above us, it sounded like they were bowling, moving heavy stuff around and dropping things on the floor, we had to be absolutely exhausted to fall asleep, plus the mattress is as hard as a brick, so we did have a lot of problems sleeping. Read entire member review >>
The cabin has a beautiful view of the water with no lifeboat above you. We love love love the cove balcony. It is so close to the water and very private. The room was a little warm but they said it was within range. Luckily we brought a fan with us. The mini fridge did not keep the drinks cold just barely cool but that's what ice is for. Room is very spacious with lots of storage space. Bed is a little harder than I'm used to but after the first night I got used to it. The room is in mid-ship which helps with movement. The lower to the water the less you will feel the ship moving if the seas get rough. The room is between the elevators so you don't here a lot of noise from people gathering to catch them. Carnival used to put 2 little pieces of chocolate candy on your bed every night with your itinerary and for some reason they quit. I enjoyed bringing those back to the grand kids. Overall I really enjoyed this room. Read entire member review >>
Our room was amazing! If we can afford it, we will always do a cove balcony. We loved being that close to the water and the privacy the cove balcony provided. The extra space in the room was really nice also (compared to an interior). To have a couch for relaxing was really nice, but sitting on the balcony having a couple drinks the evenings after our son went to bed was the best. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was very pleasant. We were in a Cove Balcony on deck 2 mid (2302). There was plenty of storage, but I would prefer if they would have 2 normal closets with side to side rods for hanging clothes. One of our closets had a front to back rod, which was awkward. I would suggest you bring extra wire hangers to place more in the other closet. There's also a closet with large shelves, and there are more shelves & a few small drawers in the vanity area. There was room to put luggage under the bed, and the sofa had 2 large drawers underneath, so there was plenty of storage. I would also suggest a hanging plastic shoe holder to put on the bathroom door for your toiletries. That gets them out of the way so you don't have to jam them all on the small glass shelves in the bathroom or waste valuable space on the desk/vanity. Magnetic hooks are a big help too for hanging bathing suits, hats and towels on the walls of the cabin.
The balcony was a little wider than expected, with plenty of room for 2 chairs and a small table. This cabin has a large glass window and a glass door that swings open. I had read reviews stating that passengers slam the cove doors morning & night, but that was not a problem our cruise. We gently closed ours to be considerate of our neighbors, and we never heard anyone slam theirs. Our balcony had metal dividers between us and our neighbors, and the life boats were directly above us, so we felt very private and secluded. We loved being so close to the water and saw so many flying fish! It was great! I had read reviews of the Coves that stated noise from the Galley above can be a problem, so I purposefully booked this one, away from the Galley, and it was very quiet and a perfect location for us, between the mid and forward elevators.
WARNING: The beds on the Magic are very hard. My parents warned me about this, so we brought the thickest twin foam pads we could find at Wal-mart, and our cabin steward gladly re-made the beds for us with the pads on them, and thank goodness! I would not have been able to sleep otherwise. The pads were a life-saver. We deflated them down in Space bags to bring on board and used an electric pump for inflatable mattresses to deflate them back into the Space bags. Worked like a dream! Read entire member review >>
We had one of those cove Balconies on the second floor. AMAZING!!! This was my first balcony room and I loved it!!!!! We were so close to the water we could see fish...well kinda...and the birds that swooped down to eat them... they were little but we could see... Sleeping with the door open and the water beating off the side of the boat was AMAZING!!! I will not cruise again without a balcony. Cove Balcony is a private oasis and I highly recommend one. When the water hit the side of the boat the spray casted a rainbow...it was so pretty we sometimes left something fun to go sit on our balcony. OUR room number was 2341 ... I think. AS I sit here writing this post I am jealous of whoever is in MY room now.... Lucky! Read entire member review >>
This cabin is one that has the balcony between lifeboats, so your view is not blocked at all. In strong winds the balcony door will rattle. We stuffed a piece of cardboard in it. There is ample storage space, a sofa, fridge, safe that you program with 4 digits, and a connecting door to next cabin.(2278) No noise from above or below, but if your neighbors are inconsiderate, there will be lots of balcony door slamming.

The cove balcony was a great choice for us. There were some times that there was rain and wind and this balcony is protected from the weather that most of the time we could still sit on it and enjoy the ocean rolling by and stay (mostly) dry. There were 3 of us in the room (my wife, our daughter and myself). The couch converted into a very comfortable bed for our daughter - so while we didn't have any place to sit besides the beds or out on the balcony, there wasn't a terrible feeling of claustrophobia.We had signed up for the "carnival chooses" hoping that we would get an upgrade over the basic room but that didn't happen. We were still quite happy with the room.You are very close to the water in this room - so I believe the amount of movement is less than it would have felt if you had been several floors higher. It's also not too far from the center of the ship which I believe also reduces the feeling of movement.The windows were cleaned at our first port of call (Jamaica), but were dirty again within a day or two.The full size window and glass inset in the door gave us a great view while we where in the room.The balconies are separated from each other very well, giving us a great sense of privacy.

The ship itself is very nice, so I had very high hopes for a great cruise. I knew I definitely wanted a balcony room since I'm not much into sitting at the pool with all the loud music. On my vacation, I just want to relax. What I didn't realized is that the cabin I was given was directly under the galley. For the whole cruise, I could hear the noise above. I dealt with it as best I could. We were told there weren't any rooms available to move to when we inquired as the ship was sold out. The next cabin was complaining to the room steward manager and could hear him saying, I can't do anything about that. By the end of the cruise, it seemed that the noise was getting louder or else I was getting more tired, so I called guest services. She said she would tell them to quiet down. That did no good. By the last morning, it felt like steel barrels were falling on my head. I call guest services at midnight and again at 4:50AM to complain. They offered me $60 credit. Would you think that is reasonable compensation for many miserable nights of sleep? I did also call their corporate headquarters. They gave me a 15% credit off of my next cruise. I've experienced much more helpful customer service, but at least it's something. Read entire member review >>
Room 2325 - cove balcony. Had a whining noise that kept us awake two nights. We were told it was because the stabilizers were out, and had a very hard time sleeping those two nights. Have had cove balconies before without this issue, so will try again as we love the privacy and shade of the coves. Read entire member review >>
Rooms 2289 & 2293 are Cove balconies that adjoin. The stateroom attendant opened the partition between the two balconies on the first day (at our request). These cove balconies are huge. A great space closer to the water, well shaded and private. Also very quiet. I believe the room was under the Guest Services counter, not a dining area. Room size was normal and everything was spotless. We were close to the Gangway for disembarking at ports, but were rather far from the Lido/Pool area. I didn't mind the trek, but keep in mind that it is a trek. Highly recommend this room and Cove balconies in general. Read entire member review >>
I was a little worried at first with the description "Obstructed view" but the view from the cove is just fine. The lifeboats are over the balcony so you are offered some privacy plus you don't have to worry about rain if it is bad weather. You are close to the water, which makes it seem like you are on a smaller boat. There are chairs to sit in and a small table. I loved sitting out there in the early morning,drinking coffee. It also provides a quite place to relax and unwind. The room itself is pretty standard. Not overly roomy but big enough for two people. Plenty of places to put all the stuff you bring. The bathroom is small but functional. The cove was also very quiet and we did not feel much of the ships movement. I think there was only one night where we felt any rocking at all. Its a good room for people who might be prone or concerned about to seasickness. The only drawback is that you have to wait on elevators because they take a while to make to to the 2nd floor. But the coves are also just one floor below the MDRs so it is an easy walk. All and all, it is good value for the money. Read entire member review >>
Nothing to complain about! You hear a very slight humming/vibration of the engine, but it isn't bad. You're basically right in between two sets of stairs/elevators. Only ONCE did I hear anyone in the hallway (a child crying, but it wasn't a big deal). My only advice: this room is joined with 2370, and you can hear people in that room (it sounds muffled, but technically you can hear them). I would advise getting this room if you have someone else in that room or if you just don't mind it. The balcony is GREAT and the lifeboats provide a little bit of shade (and a LOT of privacy). But seriously, this room is fantastic. You won't regret it. Read entire member review >>
We were in cabin 2396. It was a cove balcony and we loved it. Great views, plenty of space. One day I noticed some banging in the galley very early in the morning but it was only for a few minutes. It didn't even stir my husband. Read entire member review >>
Our "Cove Balcony" was very nice. Only complaint was there was a small child next door who got up and made lots of noise going in and out of his balcony every morning. I say this is a parental problem, not anything the cruise line could correct. Would normally be a very quiet private area. Read entire member review >>
This was our first time in a cove balcony and it was awesome. You are only twenty feet off the water so you can hear the waves swoon you to sleep if you prop your deck door open. The cove balcony is a keeper. Read entire member review >>
Our cove balcony was fantastic! Being low and at the center of the ship, we had very little movement. While it was a standard size room, the balcony was bigger than the standard balcony, and we were able to use it as a foot rest. I was concerned that the hull would block the view, but the standard balcony has tinted glass, so it wasn't much different. Better price too! We were under the galley and next to where the luggage carts get stored, so it was very quite. There were only two small drawbacks. One, the fridge didn't work good at all. Our room steward brought in a bucket of ice and a towel to put it on. The counter in that area was delaminating, so I'm assuming we were not the only one who felt that way. Second, we didn't like that we were suppose to keep a room key in a slot next to the door. I don't like coming back to the room at night and finding a dark room. We found out though, that you can put a playing card, business card, or any other card in the slot to do the same thing. In other words, we got by pretty good. Read entire member review >>
Our stateroom was 2337, a Category 7C cove balcony on Deck 2, between the forward and midship elevators (closer to midship). That was an excellent location. It was very quiet (we were below the Northern Lights Dining Room), and it was very convenient (very close to the midship and forward elevators).
However, the first night, there was an annoying noise. I honestly don't know what it was, since it was not repeated on any night. I did notice a pipe on the edge of our balcony. Do all cove balcony rooms have that? If not, was the noise somehow related to that pipe? And if so, why only that one night? The water was rough that night. It might have been raining, I don't know. Looking at the deck plan, it is possible that we were below one of the Deck 5 hot tubs. Maybe the pipe was for that? Maybe it was raining, and the pipe was clearing the water from the hot tub? In any case, we did not hear that noise at all after the first night, so this is more a curiosity rather than a complaint. Read entire member review >>
Balcony was very private. No lifeboat above this balcony, so it seemed more open and got a bit more sun during the day (but was still mostly shaded).
Was a connecting room, so could hear some noise from the cabin next door. Otherwise was very quiet. Read entire member review >>
This cabin was very nice. Big closet and balcony. It also had a couch and fridge. The only noise we really got was from the Pilot boats but it was only coming into and out of ports. Read entire member review >>
Cove balconies are soo nice, so close to the water. I was not bothered by the lifeboats above, not when you get that kind of view of the water. also could see the beautiful sunsets on the water. I little wet a time or two but not to bad and not wet everyday. Read entire member review >>
We had a cove balcony adjoining rooms, 2314/2318. The room was large enough with sofa and coffee table. We had a refrigerator that the cabin steward unlocked for us stocked with alcohol (which we do not drink) but it also had cold drinks which we did use. He restocked it as we used them. The three closets were adequate with shelves in one of them and the other two for hanging garments. The bathroom was large and had shelves for storage. It included a swivel mirror that was a nice touch. The shower was great unless you are a very large person, which we were not. The steward kept everything stocked. Our cove balcony was the highlight of our trip this year. We loved it. It seemed so private and cozy with very little sea spray (which we were worried about). The only down side was we could not open the door of adjoining balconies. We just yelled at the closed door, sorry to our neighbors! Read entire member review >>
The room was pretty typical, but we did have a "Cove Balcony" room which was pretty neat. These are balcony rooms down on the 2nd deck. Very close to the water. They do have an outer water tight door that I guess they close in high seas, but we never had to close it even though it got pretty rough one night.
The only issue we had with our room was the next door neighbors going out on their balcony at 6am each morning and letting the door slam. I guess the 2 folks in that room would each go out once. Person 1 out... BAM, Person 2 out... BAM. Person 1 back in..BAM... Person 2 in ...BAM. We usually had at least 4 slams each morning. This was pretty annoying as the balcony door is right next to where the head of our bed was. Read entire member review >>
Great area, nothing directly across. Watch out for Room steward that is not yours, he parks his cart across from room very early and makes lots of noise. We had Kirk for our steward and he was great! Typical balcony room, 3 closets, desk, sleeper sofa. Two chairs and small table on balcony, bathroom is small and typical, nice shelves for toiletries are a good touch! Read entire member review >>
They said they would not be ready until 1:30, but they were ready just before 1:00. Our Cove Balcony room was great! We had the two twins pushed together to make a King. We had a couch, which converted as a bed at night. Another bed came out of the ceiling above the couch. Plenty of storage. Didn't realize it until Day 4 that there were two huge drawers below the couch/bed. Two closets for hanging clothes, another closet of just shelves. The vanity had 5 more smaller drawers, and some small shelves on the other side of the safe. There are also 2 more small storage on either side of the King bed. We used the bottom of their stocked mini frig to store some of the sodas we brought. I was really worried about the Cove Balcony. It was great! It had 2 chairs and a side table. I loved being so close to the water. No issues with the chairs getting wet or us getting sprayed on. The life boats above us shaded most of the day sun, but we did get evening sun. It rained one day, and we were able to sit on our balcony and didn't get wet...because of the life boats being there. Only downside of the Cove Balcony is when your neighbors slam their balcony doors. They don't mean to do it, they just close hard, so you have to make an effort to close it softly yourself...really loud and not fun at midnight. The beds were very comfortable. Did not wake up one time with a back ache. However, once I got home, the back aches started up again. I need a new bed! They have a blow dryer in the room, but it's not so great(short cord, and doesn't get that hot). I will bring my own next time. I liked that the TV now has the menu for the entire week to view. It was nice not having to go up to the dining room each day to see what they were having that night. Oh, and no clocks in the rooms, and only two outlets. No issue with noise from our room. Loved that were were very close to elevators, and the laundry room which was($3/wash and $3/dry and has an iron). Our room guy, Antonio, called us by name every time he saw us.

Lots of closet space, bathroom was comfortable in size with plenty of shelf space. I especially liked the hair dryer in the dressing area which freed up the bathroom.
On occasion we were awakened by noise from the galley above and the last night was extremely noisy. Loved the cove balcony with the privacy it provided as well as wind protection and being located mid ship on the second floor was very convenient. Read entire member review >>
Cove Balcony a plus; quiet, private and cozy. Very close to the water line on Deck 2. Ample space with pull out sofa, small table, comfortable bed and linens. Bathroom adequate. Read entire member review >>
Very good cabin, balcony has a good amount of privacy and a good view. Connecting room means that noise can travel easily to the next cabin. Very spacious and well-lit. Not far from forward elevators but close enough to midship not to be too rocky. Definitely recommend it. Read entire member review >>
