Bring 3 prong extension cords and power strips Not enough 120volt outlets to charge devices. Only one outlet in the bathroom. I don't remember this being a problem on other Carnival ships or other cruise lines. Just thought you should know. Rogie and helpers were awesome. Read entire member review >>
Absolutely loved the wrap-around balcony. The layout of the cabin was very nice as well. One could take a nap on the bed undisturbed while someone is in the main area.
Bathroom was surprisingly spacious, twin sinks. Shower/bath combo.
Lots of storage throughout.
One of the chairs had the rear feet/wheels removed, it tilted back, but was still comfortable. Almost like a recliner.
The only bad thing about the rear of the ship is the vibration. It is something you can get used to and even forget that it is happening, however there are times when it is stronger than others. Only time it woke me up was when the sea was really rough and we were on our way into port. Lots of vibration and thumping noises from the waves. Read entire member review >>
We loved this cabin- the wake view, gentle rumble of the engines at night and the larger balcony were awesome. Here is a video tour of the room.

Cabin was decent, balcony was nice and spacious, came in really handy on the return days at sea, winds were 50+ nm but the balcony was perfectly calm. Only negative was that I did not account for the sound of the prop wash, it was rather loud, but we got used to it after the first few hours. It was curious to see the port wash significantly different than the starboard one. Another con was that there was a decent vibration at the back of the boat and we could feel it in the cabin.

Cabin 6264 aft-extended balcony. The cabin is the same as any other balcony cabin but definitely in a quiet area with little traffic. The view leaving New York of the Statue of Liberty, Empire State Building, Verrazanno Bridge was awesome. And having the aft-balcony meant we could see everything really well. The sound and sight of the wake is soothing. Leaving from New York in March meant it was too cold to enjoy sitting on the balcony at the beginning and end of the cruise. We were asked a lot if there was more 'ship' noises in the aft section but we did not find that there was. One surprise was finding that one of the deck chairs on the balcony could be put back like a lounge chair although it did not have the part for the feet a lounger has. But you could put your feet on the little table. Read entire member review >>
Decent size; tv placement too high to view comfortably; tv shelf juts into the room and can cause bumped heads; bathroom well laid out; good water pressure and hot water in shower; aft balconies are the best Read entire member review >>
We had cabin # 5297 aft balcony. Not any different than the other balcony's and not worth the extra money. It was nice being able to see NY still from the balcony as we were leaving but only plus side. Read entire member review >>
Excellent location, great aft balcony with enough overhang to just about stay dry when it rained; hot when docked and facing the sun; quite a lot of movement; wake very loud; very quiet; almost no passenger traffic in the hallway; plenty of closet space; more shelves in bathroom than other ship classes.
