Extended balcony cabin number 7195 & spotless. This cabin has a connecting door inside leading to cabin 7199. Since we did not know our neighbors, the door was really a wall to us. Extended dimensions on the balcony (10 x 6 as opposed to 10 x 4 standard size) was really a bonus as we invited friends for snacks and drinks before our dinner in the main dining room. The room is spacious for 2 adults. This is a starboard cabin where you see sunsets on the way south to Mexico and sunrises (and lights of the cities in the distance at night) on the way back to Long Beach. Spent lots of time out there!! Mid ship and doesn't rock back and forth much. Shout-out goes to our room steward Mayura (goes by "May") for keeping us stocked with extra towels and ice every day. I took the advice of one reviewer & put some bright yellow duck tape on my door so I could find it easily. Otherwise, all doors look the same. Read entire member review >>
We loved the balcony with this cabin as it's three times the length of the average cabin. We had plenty of storage for four people and the beds were comfortable. Our only problem with the cabin was getting the hot water to work. We had to call four times for them to work on the issue. Read entire member review >>
Fairly standard cabin but with an amazingly large balcony, roughly 6 feet wide by 24 feet long. There were two cabins on each deck 5 through 8 with a huge balcony. A stewards/storage room was between the two cabins on each level which allowed for the large balcony. We weren't bothered by any noise or activity. Read entire member review >>
Mid-aft extended balcony. Worn out case goods. Broken and dirty lampshades. The cabin configuration is good if you have 3 people- it's one of the few that have a bunk along with a sofa, so if you use the bunk, you at least still have a usable sofa to sit on and put things on, unlike other cabins where the sofa is the 3rd person's bed. Shower not great water pressure. Bed too hard. Asked for egg crate, didnt' get one- got a thin mattress pad instead. Stained bathroom seat, slightly sewer smelling bathroom. Again, NO amenities outside of the built in shampoo and gel- lighting is good, towels were acceptable. Just really need to refresh cabins and update Read entire member review >>
The cabin was clean and everything was in working order. (TV, lights, Air) - The bathroom was the largest I've ever had. I could actually turn around in the shower. My two complaints would be that my cabin was right under the Lido Deck (Deck 9) and unless you're a sound sleeper, you will be awakened by the deck noise that at times lasts past midnight and starts as early as 6:00 a.m. My second complaint was the smell of the toilet after day 3. I couldn't open the toilet without smelling sewage. Make sure to take a small bottle of Febreeze. Read entire member review >>
Fine. The ship seems "old" and we couldn't figure out why they kept that mermaid looking woman all over the place. She was creepy. Was that Miracle? I never got the ship story.... art was weird and out of place.
Our service was good. We liked William and he was in and out of our rooms without disturbing us at all. Read entire member review >>
Rooms were ok, a little shabby, with good built in storage. You can faintly hear/feel the drums in the Phantom Theatre in the evening, The extended balcony was good sized but we had a lot of problems with our neighbors cigarette smoke (and ash from above). Read entire member review >>
our cabin was a balcony nothing terrific... but ok... will not go on carnival ever again its not the party ship like they said they are... since the other ships problems everyone is suffering on here.. the bar wait staff says its not her favorite I slipped her a 20.00 bill... for nothing she deserved this ... she said she makes peanuts here but she needs a job its better than nothing... the food sucked really... and your food is terrible... and when anyone books they need to have their heads examined and go to rccl where they treat you like a king as you are.

As quiet as you'd expect for a shop. N unusual noises. Seemed of an average size. The balcony was extended, but still not big enough for four chairs at a time. Two chairs fit perfectly. This cabin was not unusual and did not have any problems that we could appreciate. Read entire member review >>
Excellent closet & storage space
Ample size bathroom, decor outdated
Balcony size & condition excellent, including lounger chairs
Balcony doors swing & not slide, therefore they won't stay open to allow fresh air in/out of the room
Room size better than average
Bed comfort worse than other cruises
Safe required a credit care swipe instead of a code ... not very practical Read entire member review >>
We arrived at room 5110 with a beautiful, spacious extended balcony. It was a sizable room with plenty of closet and storage space. Our wonderful travel agent, Marianne of Travel Emporium sent us a beautiful bottle of wine, which was waiting for us in the cabin. We loved our stateroom, however there were a few minor issues (which really were very minor). One being a not so fresh smell upon entering the cabin. We did open the balcony door upon sailing into warmer weather to freshen it up a bit. The other was that it was only a few doors away from Camp Carnival. Lots of running in the halls. The only time one would be disturbed by this is if you're an afternoon napper. The final issue is if you like to go to bed super early (before 11:30) you'll want to avoid this cabin, as it is located directly above The Phantom Theater. On day 2 we decided to go up to the cabin around 10:30pm and you could really hear alot of noise from the show. The shows all end by 11:30, so there were no noise issues at night. Overall it was a comfortable cabin which also included a blow dryer for those who need one. You're also able to view dining room menus and access your portfolio right from your TV. There is only one outlet located within the cabin (besides a shaver outlet in the bathroom). Read entire member review >>
This is one of the few extended balcony cabins that is not in the indent or rear facing. It is a side facing extended balcony where if you look straight down you see the water, not the top of one of the lifeboats. Also, the view forward and backwards is unobstructed. There was no small table in the cabin. Read entire member review >>
Great balcony, great location for the spa and evening entertainment. Very quiet except you could faintly hear the theater during the evening shows, but they don't go on very late. Close to the elevators. Great service. Read entire member review >>
We stayed in Cabin 7181 with an extended balcony. It was a great cabin and the beds and pillows were beyond comfortable. It was nice to be able to open the balcony divider since our friends were in the next room. Read entire member review >>
