Oceanview stateroom with private balcony and twin beds that convert to king. All staterooms have carpeting, ample drawer and closet space, private facilities (shower, basin and toilet), telephone and color television showing first-run films.
Cabin 5212 was in a great location, very quiet and only a minimal vibration from the engines could be felt.
I did find the bed to be too hard but our cabin steward, Josie, put an extra duvet under the sheet to soften it up for me. I also found the location of the TV to be a little awkward and ended up with a crick in my neck. Our balcony was our little slice of heaven...we passed a number of hours just relaxing and watching the sea go by. Read entire member review >>
Listen, youre not spending 24 hours a day in the room! It's enough room to sleep and move around .. a little; BRING AN EXTENSION CORD. There is only one outlet in the room... and if you need to charge multiple devices + an alarm clock.. you will need a cord! Read entire member review >>
Cabin is located near front of ship and is pretty quiet, except for noise from doors banging as explained in my review above.
Good size for two. Plenty of storage for clothes in closets and drawers. Suitcases slide under the bed, keeping the room pretty much clutter free.
Bathroom have sink, toilet, and shower.
King size bed.
Rooms are air conditioned and can be adjusted. Read entire member review >>
The front of the ship we never get a room in, we typically are closer to the middle or rear of the ship. It was a great place near the elevator but not noisy at all. Very quiet and easy to find. The ship seemed a bit rocky, especially when we went to bed, but we didn't mind and don't get seasick so it was fine. We don't know if it was the location of the room or normal for this smaller size ship. Read entire member review >>
The cabin is well cared for, BUT, be aware of the balcony door. The latch shows signs of ongoing problems (as in, it's bent and scratched from tools, etc.) and the door rattles and hisses unless the deadbolt is secured - however, the deadbolt doesn't always work.
Aside from that, the minibar fridge is well stocked (if that's your thing) with plenty of room left for you to put your own "keep it cold" stuff in.
Bathroom was fun, because the people in the cabin next to us had all their arguments either in the bathroom or they left the bathroom door open. We could hear everything while we were sitting on the can - better than having a book. The clothes line in the shower could probably stand being replaced - it seemed to have been broken and the only way it worked was to stay extended all the time. Everything else worked correctly.
The sitting area looks like it could use some reupholstering as the vinyl seems to be getting loose.
Beyond that, it's a typical balcony cabin and there isn't much more to share. Read entire member review >>
This was a great veranda stateroom on Deck 6, aft, port side. It had an unobstructed view, including straight down to the water (instead of the top of a lifeboat). Plenty of storage, the bed was very comfortable, and the shower was strong with plenty of immediate hot water (although the temp would fluctuate slightly). The cabin was in good condition, although a few updates to the bathroom and TV would be a nice improvement. Our cabin steward Imam was awesome. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was clean and well maintained. Our steward was excellent. As our cabin had an adjoining door to cabin 6135, used by the wife's Mom, sister and her husband, they opened the connecting door and balcony partition making it very easy to socialize. We had our ice bucket refilled twice a day with the room kept clean and ready. Our cabin steward was a lady who told us to call her Num-Nun (couldn't pronounce her name on her name tag if I wanted to). She well earned a large personal tip.The cabin in on the starboard side forward. It rode well even when the ship rocked a bit. The balcony view was excellent. One night while experiencing high winds, the ocean spray kicked up by the bow wave missed our balcony was happily danced and drenched those aft of us. If you want an adjoining cabin, this is the way to go. We would use this cabin again. Read entire member review >>
Mattress closest to TV slopes towards the TV from people sitting on it. Air conditioning not working properly. Balcony door not closing on its own (but doesnt slam so thats good).Otherwise the cabin is fine, balcony can be windy but depending on the temperature that can be a good thing.Cabin Steward not up to Carnival standards in our opinions.

Balcony room was great
Lots of vibration on this ship (most I've ever seen or felt)
Beds were like a rock (not good like other ships)
Bring your own soda and tell the steward to put yours on ice each evening (works great) Read entire member review >>
Nice room. Quiet with no rooms across the hallway. It was a convenient choice, I think, because I liked the location - very close to the stairs, 3 floors up directly into the buffet, 3 floors down directly into the dinning room. Read entire member review >>
Extended balcony was great, the location was convenient to dining/elevators, and it was quiet. The room was small but laid out conveniently. There was plenty of storage, although the bathroom was the standard tiny cruise ship variety. There are no interior cabins in this section, which cuts down on the traffic.

We stayed on the 6th deck aft. The bed and pillows were very comfortable. We heard no noises from other rooms and the shower was really nice. Very hot water in the shower and sink and the shower head is adjustable so if you have little ones you can lower the head and it will fit with your child just fine. Our room was very clean and quiet.

Room 6151, 8C Balcony, Empress Deck Forward. The cabin had lots of closet and drawer space. It was quiet and close to the Forward elevators. The balcony is less windy than most of the others on the ship because it is protected by the balcony (which extends out) of the cabin next to it. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 6153- Good location, plenty of space. I was impressed by all the storage. Two closets for hanging things, one cabinet with about six deep shelves, which was more than sufficient. Enough drawers to use as well. Only complaint would be that the little fridge was not cold enough and we never quite got a handle on the temperature setting in the cabin. We did bring a bungee cord and used it several times to hold the balcony door open to get some air and that was great.
Liked the unobstructed balcony view- especially with coffee in the morning.
Bed and pillows were very comfortable- slept very well. Beach towels were furnished which were big and thirsty. Robes were in the closet and I wore mine every day- loved it! If I didn't have robes at home, I would have bought one to take home.
TV had good information options and surprisingly good reception.
Service every day was impeccable. Read entire member review >>

small for three people
telephone needs to be near the beds
need more area to hang things
room vibrates a little while the ship sails
loved the balcony
quiet location near the mermaid grill - great to get something to eat and bring back to the room - very close to the pizza and coffee bar Read entire member review >>
We were in 5203 which was a great location directly off the glass elevators midship. Room size was fine, enjoyed the balcony, bathroom was plenty large enough. The 4 kids were 2 doors down (5199) and it was a little tight for the 4 of them but other than that all was good. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 4162 was the perfect location. It was right off of the middle glass elevators so it was equal distance to either end of the ship. You did not hear a lot of hallway noise, no engine noise, no rocking of the ship, and great balcony view. I usually get higher cabins but I'm convinced the 4th floor is one of the best places. You don't have a lot of stairs to walk up or down for where the action is. Def recommend this area of the ship! Read entire member review >>
We had balcony cabin 6112 (forward port side). The cabin had a longer deck but was very narrow and we could not move our chairs around they way we wanted. If you don't like walking don't get this cabin because everything we liked doing was in the rear/aft section of the ship. The only thing up front on the ship was the spa and lounge for shows.

Great Room, like I explained above. The cabin had more than enough room, great balcony and I seemed to have gotten a room that faced port side, which was excellent when we got to Nassau. No hallway noise at all, and the stewardess was excellent, WE LOVED NOVI!! Read entire member review >>
