Oceanview stateroom with private balcony and twin beds that convert to king. Every Carnival guest is assured of spacious, comfortable accommodations. All staterooms have carpeting, ample drawer and closet space, private facilities (shower, basin and toilet), telephone and color television showing first-run films.
Some nights heard some scrapings and rattlings from - outside? Above? Was it deck chairs? Wind on the dividers? Not a big deal, didn't keep me awake. Overall cabin comfortable and plenty of space and storage! Read entire member review >>
Very nice cabin! Though not very spacious (it was 185 sq.ft plus the balcony was 35 sq.ft) it felt roomy because there was so much storage for clothing, toiletries etc. that there was more than ample space to keep everything put nicely away. The bed was very comfortable and so clean, the flat screen TV had so many channels, the lighting was great and the bathroom was great with plenty of supplies and nice hot water in the sink and shower! This was our 1st time in a Balcony Cabin and we really enjoyed the relaxation and views on the balcony! Loved the cabin!!! Read entire member review >>
Room and bathroom were roomier than expected. Clean. Bedding and pillows comfortable. Limited television entertainment. You must request ice to your stateroom. Room service quick and the coffee was excellent. Room steward was extremely attentive and efficient. Balcony was nice and a must! Closet doors did not stay shut during rough seas.

Not as nice as previous balcony staterooms. The placement of the couch is odd, as it's too long for the wall it's against. The "thermostat" is on the ceiling and there is no mini fridge. The balcony was great and the bathroom was spacious enough and had a medicine cabinet for extra storage. Read entire member review >>
Port side of the ship, forward of the Lido deck pools, etc. Quiet passageway, comfortable cabin with balcony. Plenty of storage for two people. Bed was comfortable, bedding was fresh and clean. Sofa is "low" for a tall or older person to "get up out of", but quite comfortable when sitting in it! A special note about the air conditioning: If you'll look at the ceiling, there is a large round disc that has a blue line on it, with a small plastic lever sticking out above it. If you slide that lever one direction or the other, you'll increase or decrease the amount of air blowing into the room. The air was cold and plentiful all cruise long!! The cabin is in an ideal location - literally just steps away from the forward entrance to the main Lido deck pools, etc., in one direction, and steps away from the Atrium elevators in the other - and in a quiet area at the same time!

Balcony on Lido deck. Very close to exit by pool. Love this location so close to everything. Was second cruise to stay in same location.Room steward very friendly and helpful. Room always clean. Read entire member review >>
1056, upper level balcony right by the elevators. Even though we were close to the forward elevators, we did not get an unusual amount of noise from the public areas. The room seemed like more than enough (probably because there were 2 of us and we usually travel with 5). The balcony was good! The TV is still on old style (no flat screen) and the color taste in the bathroom wasn't that great. The only issue I saw was the reading lights on the wall had come out of their mounts, but were easily popped back into place. This happened a few times during the trip. I would recommend this room to others! Read entire member review >>
Bigger than I expected. Has a full size couch and a pull down bed to sleep four. Great location just a few feet from the elevators, and a very short walk to the Lido Deck pools and buffet. Very quiet considering the location. Not a fan of the decor but it didn't bother me after a few hours. Read entire member review >>
Great balcony room on the Spa deck. Can't complain about anything, except for the older television. Everything was in working order, always clean, enough room for 2 adults plus a four year old. Read entire member review >>
The balcony room 9269 was fantastic and I believe larger than the ones I have had on Royal Caribbean. The balcony itself wasn't huge, but sufficient for 2 chairs and a very small table. The chairs didn't recline and even if they could, there isn't enough room to recline two at once anyway. You would likely have to move one chair and the small table inside the cabin and then recline one of them the length of the balcony. The bathroom was great with a larger shower than I have had on Royal Caribbean. The water temperature and pressure were also very good. The TV was an old style tube TV, but sufficient. The vanity was nice and the closet space outstanding!
While the room was on Deck 9, Lido deck with the pools, hot tubs, and buffet dining, it was relatively quiet and a great location. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was a balcony on the starboard(right-hand) side of the ship near the aft(rear) portion on deck eight, Veranda deck. It was an easy walk up to the buffet on Lido deck, one deck above. It was roomy, had a great bed, TV, much closet and drawer space, a 2-person couch and table. Along one wall was the TV, a dressing/mirror area, and three closets. Since it was a balcony cabin, two robes were provided. The bath had a good size shower stall, a hair dryer, toilet, sink and medicine cabinet; ample space for one person at any time.
The balcony was small but ample for two people, containing two deck chairs and a small table. The cabins location was quiet, had very little propeller vibration and was steady during heavy seas. Doors were narrow(20 inches).
The cruise lines' smoking policy prevents smoking in any stateroom, so those that must smoke and have balcony cabins do it on the balcony, much to the dissatisfaction of those none smokers(like us) that are downstream of that obnoxious smelling weed. Seems it would make more sense if one side were smoking, the other non-smoking. Read entire member review >>
Directly under the Karaoke bar - not just signing...bad singing all day, all night. In general our location was good - between several sets of elevators and not a lot of traffic in the hall. Didn't feel lots of movement so we were in a good location from that perspective. Read entire member review >>
The cabin is forward of the pools on the 10th floor. Not huge, but big enough. The high balcony gave a great starboard view. Just far enough away from the pools that it was very quiet, but only a 30 second walk to them, and another minute to the buffet.
Great location. Read entire member review >>
Decent sized room. Room was clean and well maintained throughout the length of the cruise. The telephone did not work for most of the cruise and/or went unanswered at the other end. The first day the shower head literally fell off of the wall but it was repaired promptly. The TV and remote control are definitely dated and second rate. The room steward was first class. Room is about mid ship and is next to some type of plumbing as there is a constant gurgling sound coming from the wall behind the lavatory area--not really a troubling sound but might annoy some.

We had balcony cabin #9288 and it was fantastic. We were actually 3 cabins down from the outside Lido area and never did really hear any noise at all, which really kind of surprised us.One small complaint was that the light out on the balcony did not work. Would definitely book this same cabin again. Read entire member review >>
9278 a nice balcony, plenty of storage on the Lido. Close to elevators and the buffet. Hallway not noisy, door closes at the end nearest the outside deck. No refrigerator. Hot water slow to come. Did have hairdrayer. Read entire member review >>
I loved being so close to the elevator and just 1 floor away from the Lido. Some people think it's too noisy by the elevator and we did hear some noise from the elevator but not too bad. Read entire member review >>
