(245 sq. ft., balcony 220 sq. ft.) Private wrap-around balcony. Two twin beds (convertible to king-size bed). Separate bedroom area. Sitting area consisting of sofa, armchair and coffee table. Two TVs with A/V input plate; telephone; 110 AC current; individual climate control; wall safe; large closet; walk-in dressing area with vanity table and chair; full bathroom with shower/whirlpool tub and double sinks; hair dryer; mini bar. Balcony: Patio chairs and table.
Oh my goodness...I cannot say enough about this cabin. Having a bedroom separate from the living room area and having a dressing room was fantastic. The walk-in closet was more than ample. The double sink vanity in the bathroom was great. My only complaint was the bathtub. As a 65 year old with arthritic knees, it was a little difficult to get in and out to use the shower. It was doable, but I took my time so avoid a fall. I prefer a walk-in shower. Pressure and temperature of shower was great. Grand kids loved the whirlpool bath.
The absolute best part of this cabin is the balcony. It covers almost half the back of the ship plus wrapped around the side. There were about 10 upright chairs and chaises on the balcony plus a couple small tables. It would have been nice to have one dining table for breakfast, etc.
The is a TV in the bedroom and a second one in the living area, both flat screens. The adjoining cabin had the old TV. I guess they only get replaced when broken.
To see this cabin and the adjoining cabin, go to You Tube and search Carnival Pride 4237 and 4239. There are a couple of videos showing a complete tour. I looked at them before cruising. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was dirty upon arrival. This was brought to the cabin stewards attention. He did nothing to correct it. He would leave dirty glasses in the cabin for a couple of days before taking them out. Tub didn't drain when you showered, toilet stopped filling up with water and when we were told it was fix the entire cabin started smelling like sewage. The size of the cabin was nice.

The cabin itself was awesome. Basically three separate areas. The living room had a couch and chair. A separate bedroom and a dressing area with a walk-in closet. There are a few videos on YouTube that show the room in detail if you search for Pride 4237. The wraparound balcony is outstanding. We spent many hours, night and day, on that balcony listening to the wash from the props and looking at the sea. That balcony alone is worth the price of the cabin. Best cabin I have ever stayed in.

This is the best aft suite at sea to us. Large separate bedroom, living areas. HUGE aft wrap around balcony. I don't want to rave about it too much because gets harder to book it all the time. There are two of these on MAIN deck 4, higher deck aft vista's lose a little room and deck width etc as you go up. You can see my 2010 video of it on youtube, still the same.

Vista Suite 4237 has spoiled us as we plan future cruises. This spacious suite included a living room, dressing room, bathroom with his/her sinks and standards shower/tub with jets, a bedroom, very small walk in closet, and a private balcony fit for the king of a small country. In my opinion the vista suites in Carnival's Spirit class of ships is certainly worth the money and truly gave my wife and I an weeklong experience we will not soon forget. One of my favorite things to do each morning was to draw back the curtains on each window to reveal the beauty of the days surrounds. The view of the beautiful blue hue of the water as we cruised south sparkled in the light of the sun. This view was visible all along the aft of the ship and certainly gives the room the right to be called a Vista Suite. If you don't mind the sound of the wash from the back of the ship than your time on the large balcony sounds like a rushing river or waterfall. The sound was rather relaxing if that's your kind of thing. It would appear the the private balconies on the deck 4 had more room than the decks above. The railing on our balcony did not curve inward while it appeared all the other did. There is the ability to use the door to a joining room in the living room. We sometimes could hear our neighbors talking or opening and closing their doors...pretty standard when everyone is in tight quarters. Read entire member review >>
We had Vista Suite 6260. It was well appointed and provided plenty of room for the two of us. It's advertised as a cabin for three, but think it could be a little cramped for that number. It has a wrap around deck, which provides plenty of room to roam outside the cabin.
Lots of space for storage, plenty of natural light, and nice comfy beds. Good value for the money. Read entire member review >>
Great balcony, great view, big room, great storage area, noisy all the time under serenity deck which is open 24 hours per day. one elevator away from Normandy restaurant and one flight from Serenity deck. miles away from shows and doctors office, narrow hallways, far from night life.

Great balcony, great layout and awesome bathroom complete with whirlpool and double sinks. However, VERY loud when the deck chairs are being moved around above you at night and in the morning. Also, there is a noticeable vibration that can get a little annoying. Read entire member review >>
