Twin beds that convert to king, large balcony, sitting area with armchair andÂ coffee table, sofa, dressing area with vanity, two large closets, wall safe, refrigerator, mini bar, private bath with whirlpool tub and shower, phone, television, hair dryer.
Good size and storage. Great service. The bathrooms in ocean suites a bit cramped as they have squeezed in a tub that is not needed. Walked by plenty of open rooms for balcony cabins and they were similar just a little less floor space and a good value. Read entire member review >>
The room was satisfactory - decor is decidedly "ORANGE"
The storage was terrific - flat screen TV
What was ridiculous was the bathroom - without getting too graphic, you could not sit properly on the toilet - it was at an angle to the tub (small jacuzzi - who needs it) and was beyond silly. Lighting was okay - quite dated in my opinion. The balcony was long and skinny - not very practical, considering this was supposedly a suite. Nice dressing area. Read entire member review >>
Nice, Clean, Small for what I expected, but certainly adaquate for the 3 of us... Tub with jets, plenty of hot water, 2 closets and dressing area with big mirrors. Nice balcony. Read entire member review >>
This cabin is on port side and very near elevators. Experienced no problems with any noise because this room has a long hall you go down as you enter the room. The makeup table/dressing area in the OS was really nice. The bathroom has a jacuzzi tub but we never used that part, just the shower inside the tub. The tub is pretty small lengthwise and I don't think we would have been able to sit down and have our legs straight out, so didn't even try. Got this room for a $ 175.00 upgrade fee after getting a call from Carnival about 45 days out from our cruise. It was worth it because that came with Priority Boarding and the added size of the room was nice. Read entire member review >>
This was our first cruise so we had no experience with any cabin type. The dressing area of the Ocean Suite was convenient as there were four of us in the room. From what I can tell there isn't a lot more space in comparison to a balcony room other than the dressing area. A very nice room with a balcony that was big enough. Read entire member review >>
-Cabin Steward Pedro was excellent - great customer service and very personable
-Balcony was big, space for four chairs (including two loungers) and a table
-Beds were comfortable
-Bathtub was tough to get in and out of - weirdly shaped Read entire member review >>
The cabin was OK and it was small. However, they managed to have a type of sofa and a side chair in it which really made it cramped. There was a separate dressing area with a dressing table with a granite countertop and two closets. In the bedroom there was a closet and plenty of drawer space. The bathroom had a single sink, a whirlpool deep tub with a shower. Read entire member review >>
This cabin was small for 5 people. The set up is the 2 bunks, a king, and on the other side of the king a pallet on the floor with a small mattress for a child. Certainly not 5 adults. This is a set up for 5, two adults, maybe two or 3 smaller children. The view is fine. It is WAY far down from everything so be ready for stairs. It is close to the elevators which is OK. The toilet overflowed in this room. Don't bring a ton of luggage if you have 5 people, there is no where to put it. The shower is decent sized though, surprisingly. Read entire member review >>
There was adequate room for 2 people. The extra space for the couch and occasional chair was much better than in the regular balcony room (I think this used to be called a Junior Suite), but much less than in a Grand Suite. The balcony was much larger. The dressing area with a small stool and vanity lights was kind of wasted space, making the bathroom seem smaller. It did have a jetted tub, but not a separate shower. It did have two complete closets and plenty of storage. Our room steward, Louis, went above and beyond to help us with our medical needs and to be sure we were comfortable - earned a well-deserved tip! Read entire member review >>
Large, quiet location (mid-ship away from the elevators). Poor bathroom unfortunately otherwise would rank it above average. Lots of storage space, separate vanity area and a refrigerator. Read entire member review >>
Over priced for this suite size. Need your own hair dryer so others can utilize the bathroom . The dressing area does not have a door , so if you need to change it has to be in the bathroom. Unlike past suites which you could close yourself off in. Great location near elevators but you don't hear them. Read entire member review >>
Very nice cabin. Would choose one without a tub next time. We're shower people. There was more storage than we needed with two large suite cases full and a carry on. Balcony could seat 4 comfortably.A/C worked great and we were near elevators. Great spot. Read entire member review >>
This is the greatest cabin I have ever sailed in. A separate bedroom and access to the balcony with a large living room with a very comfy queen size pull out sofa bed. The only downside is the balcony was tiny and although they had 2 loungers, one of which was under the slanted glass and couldn't be used, and one chair with a small table. The overhang was only about 2 feet, so it was hot! No one could look down on us and you had to go to the railing to look into the balcony to our left. We were over the aft dining room and heard nothing for noise at all. Very little vibration when docking or leaving a port. Mini fridge was emptied before we got there so it was great to have. A/C was cold and effective! Read entire member review >>
Cabin was nicely appointed, even if it was smaller than Ocean Suites on Conquest and Dream Class ships. The new decor was bright and fresh, and there was way more storage space than two people could ever need. As others have noted, the bathroom was slightly "different", having the toilet at an angle toward the bathtub. However, since there were no tall people trying to use it, it was not an issue for us. This cabin is at the absolute center of the ship, and is very convenient to everything. We hardly had to use elevators at all. Read entire member review >>
We had a suite that was possibly the best location for us we have ever had. I originally booked inside, upgraded to balcony, and before I knew it I again upgraded to this suite. It was more pricey than I think it was worth, but again the location alone was worth it for us. It was cabin 7169, it is mid-ship and I was hesitant of the location fearing it would be very noisy. It is three steps from the atrium glass elevators on deck 7. We got off and on those elevators without waiting 9 times out of 10 and could easily navigate anywhere on the ship. I was not thrilled with the layout of the bathroom and was disappointed after having been in a similarly priced suite on The Liberty that was much nicer. Mardi-Gras night in the atrium was a blast and extremely loud. When we went up to the room before it was over we did not hear a sound when we shut the door. Read entire member review >>
