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.
Loved the little balcony! I enjoyed sitting out there with a book and a glass of wine (when I could find one, haha! They apparently only expect you to order girly/party/fluff drinks!) or just hanging over the railing watching the water.
Otherwise, the room was perfectly serviceable, with enough hooks and towel racks for our wet things, only one electrical outlet so bring a strip, and the bed was comfortable. I've seen complaints about outdated "decor" but, geez, who cares?! Read entire member review >>
The cabin colors and decor could use some updating. There was some visible rust on the floor around the bathroom door that was a little unsightly and the closet doors needed adjusting and I had to reattach one of them. The ship could conserve a great deal of energy by updating the flourescent fixtures.
All of the AC, lighting, electricity and plumbing in the cabin worked perfectly. We enjoyed a good sized king bed that was actually two twins pushed together. The bedding was as comfortable as I have ever slept in a world class resort, really. The linens were are excellent quality cotton as were the bath towels. The pillows were plush and extremely comfortable. I enjoyed the balcony on occasion just to watch and experience the ocean.
All in All
No complaints about the cabin. Read entire member review >>
there were 3 of us in the cabin and very hard to get around each other inside - also only 2 chairs outside - why couldn't they accommodate us with one more chair - towel animals were very basic - nothing to write home about and no chocolate at night. TV pretty small Read entire member review >>
Clean. Enough room for 4. This cabin was towards the front of the ship deck 11, and we felt a lot of movement, especially when leaving Cozumel and arriving in Galveston. Not good for people prone to sea sickness. The cabin was right on the other side of Camp Ocean so at various times throughout the day and night very loud banging could be heard. Other than this, because it was at the end of the hall, we never heard a sound. We only saw others in our hall once, and never heard them. If you can deal with loud bumping and clearly feeling movement of the ship at times, this may be a good cabin for you. Read entire member review >>
Not enough room to separate the queen into two twins (have to get out the end of the bed instead of from the side on the side next to the window--only 2-3 inches of space). We had to get them to turn the sofa around--which left it sticking out into the passage between the bathroom into the sitting area by about one foot. It was a little inconvenient, but much better than having to crawl out of the end of the bed. Lots of noisy bass the first night out from some club on the deck below--but we complained and did not have the problem again. Read entire member review >>
When we got in the cabin, the lavatory smelled like a cat box (seriously a cat box). I have no idea why. Housekeeping scrubbed it immediately, but the smell returned to a lesser degree over 3 days. Each day housekeeping would scrub it down for us. By the 4th day, it was normal. I'm not sure who was in there before us, but we left it smelling fresh.. The shower head leaks, deal with it... The TV's in all cabins are horrible, this one would go out all the time. Everything else in the cabin was what it should be. We all know the "Miami Vice" decor cannot be helped.

This is a basic balcony cabin we had setup for a couple (just the two of us). This room is directly below the eating area on the Lido deck ~ loud scraping, running, jumping, and chair moving noises almost 24/7 ~ not for the light sleeper. The Lido deck noise is much louder out on your balcony. The bed is huge so you have just a small area to squeeze through to get through the balcony. The countertop was peeling off. The clothes drawers were broken. No frig. Very litle storage due to the way the bed is setup... you can't get to the drawers below the TV. The TV is old, grainy, and the remote barely worked. You cannot access your Sign & Sail account or the menu from this room. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was nice, large and pretty quiet except for the loud talking of the kids walking up and down the stairs to and from the Camp Carnival area above.Bed was more comfortable than ours at home. Loved the sheets! Balcony was smaller than others we've had in the past but we still enjoyed it. Read entire member review >>
Our room was AWESOME, 1101 on the Spa Deck with a balcony. No one can look over room 1101's balcony there your at the top and there is a shield from the people playing putt putt to lean over that particular balcony. Read entire member review >>
No cover above balcony was NOT an issue at all, great location, easy access to outside deck and elevators, no noise at all, only wish we could have had the option to remove the partition between our cabins. Read entire member review >>
Huge room. Quiet area. Balcony not covered. Across from crew pantry so there was noise from the hallway during the day. Elevators take forever to get up to the top floor. Also, you will be accosted by the pushy spa people while waiting for the elevators. Read entire member review >>
