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. Our SuperLiners all feature staterooms above ocean level for a more comfortable cruise.
There was sloppy paint dripped and brushed over our balcony. We were on the 11th floor, elevators took a very long time for everyone. Our balcony door was a slider, and it had to be slammed and locked in order to keep from whistling, our toilet apparently broke one day and they were fixing it when we returned to our room, and once after a port visit I was taking a shower - and the water was shut off! In the middle of shampooing my hair we had no water - so I had to use the $3.75 bottled water in the room to rinse the suds out of my hair! Because we were directly below the Serenity adult deck, if we were on our balcony and people were standing at the rail of the Serenity deck, they were looking down at us. Room was dated, but had everything we needed and of course our steward was great (as always). Bed comfortable. Never enough outlets. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was nice and clean. The cabin steward, Wayan was wonderful and attentive. That is where it all stopped. Our cabin was directly below the buffet and the cleaning crew dragged, dropped and slammed tables, chairs, and dishwater ALL NIGHT LONG!!! Add that one of the doors for the cabin stewards to store their items was right outside of our room and slammed shut each time, It was impossible to sleep. There was no care at all to even attempt being quiet. This was not relaxing at all and ended up making my wife and I cranky at each other due to the lack of sleep. We were able to fall asleep around 4:00am every morning when the crews stopped. The problem was that our excursions were at 8:15. I generally sleep very well on the ships but this was asinine. Failure on all levels. Read entire member review >>
Since there were 4 of us in 1 room it was very tight. But we knew beforehand that would be the case. The room steward Rolando was absolutely terrific. There were 2 teenage girls with us who left all of their clothing and cosmetics in piles all over the room and bathroom. Rolando never complained and managed to make this room as presentable as his magic powers would allow. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was average, what you would expect on a cruise. I did love having the balcony room though. It was great to be able to dry out your wet clothes each day. There was alot of rust on the floor of them though. You didn't want to put your feet too close the glass b/c that's where the rust was. Very small bathroom, but that's to be expected on a cruise.

Our room was clean and in good repair. Our balcony door closer did not work, so we had to make sure to close it behind us. The room steward was quick to get our room cleaned up after we left in the morning and evening. We only missed turn down on the first day because we were getting ready for dinner when he came to the door. We did have to ask for an ice bucket, but the steward came around and introduced himself and we requested it then. We had brought our own Diet Coke and filled the refrigerator but he never replaced the 2 we bought from the refrigerator even when we had run out of our own. The only cleanliness thing I noticed with the room is the edges of the carpet. They need to spend some more time vacuuming the corners of the carpet. The air conditioning in the room was just adequate. Some nights it was comfortable in the room, others it seemed warm. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was veranda deck aft. Typical Carnival balcony. We were able to run upstairs to the buffet easily to grab a cup of coffee or refill our ice bucket. Would never do a cruise again without being on a balcony. Love waking up early and watching the ship come into port, or late in the evening wearing the big fluffy robes and having a glass of wine before bed and turning off all the lights and listening to the ocean.

Good size - bathroom roomy, storage very roomy. Only one electrical outlet. Furnishings could use some cleaning and the ventilation system needs to be checked. It left a lot of dust on the room surfaces... A balcony is the only way to go! Read entire member review >>
We researched our cabin (8309) before choosing it. It was reported to be in a quiet area. It was extremely loud. I would not book any room on the 8th floor of the Valor because the pools and movie screen are on the 9th floor. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 7362, Balcony. Great location, conveniently located in mid-ship and close to both mid-ship elevators and aft-elevators. Good layout. One of the knobs on the TV was broken, but caused no issue. Surprised that they still have tube TVs rather than Flat Panel. Read entire member review >>
We were in 8441. The room was sufficient and we loved the balcony. However, there was quite a bit of noise from the floor above. Turns out there is a 24 hour pizza restaurant by the pool. So there is a lot of people hanging out up there at night. Read entire member review >>
I thought the cabins were very typical ship cabins. Not an overly amount of space but adequet. I think they could have done a better job of keeping them straightened. It was all OK.. not very good or exceptional.. just OK.. Read entire member review >>
3 closets were plenty of space for 2 adults. It's midship, so good for people with motion sickness issues. Quiet and excellent location to Lido, only 1 floor to go up, can use stairs to get to pool and buffet areas to avoid elevators. Read entire member review >>
Great room and location. Lots of storage space, set up is great. needed a better TV. All Carnival ships were supposed to be updated with flat screens. We had a 19 inch, which the remote didn't work well. fought with it all week. Read entire member review >>
We loved the location of this room as it is a short climb up the stairs to the Lido deck or down to the Promenade and Washington Dining Room. There was little traffic or noise in the hallway, never heard a sound coming from the rooms above or below. Overall the room was in very good condition with no issues. Read entire member review >>
9274, balcony was nice to have. Plenty of closet space, bathroom was good size for cruise ship. Location is good/bad. Great being on Lido deck for easy access to room, especially for handicap people to avoid having to take elevators. Bad for this room - door opens directly to hallway where elevators are, and people pass by from Lido deck area to get to elevators. If we had door open, felt like everyone could see in our room. Would not be my first choice on this floor, but the accessibility made it worth it for this. Read entire member review >>
We had a balcony cabin on deck 8 which was nicely laid out but directly opposite the elevators and the noise woke us up early every morning. Our neighbors had huge fights every night at about 2am after drinking to much. Not the cruise ships fault but the walls are paper thin. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 9234 - no issues, quiet, comfortable, spacious. Only issue, we put some decorations on our door (magnets) and somebody stole them. That isn't Carnival's fault. That is just stupid, ignorant people. If it doesn't belong to you DON'T TAKE IT. Read entire member review >>
the cabin was fine other than the fact I asked for a room where the least noise would be heard and I was put directly under swimming pool and band area...the view was great, the noise from outside the cabin and even inside...squeaks and lighting fixtures...all the noise was very annoying and upsetting when I specifically asked for a quiet room.
