This was our first experience with an Ocean View Cabin. We've always had a balcony before. We liked the big window so we could see the weather and have natural light but we will go back to a balcony next time. The cabin was great as it was close to the mid ship elevators. Our steward Suasa was excellent! Read entire member review >>
We booked oceanview cabin #2234. I was surprised by how spacious it was compared to the oceanview cabins we’ve booked on smaller ships like the Fascination and the Elation. It also has a window with an area you can sit in which our son totally enjoyed during the cruise. We usually book balconies but didn’t really miss it. This was a great cabin choice for us. We could hear some noise from the theater above us, running in the halls, and conversations from neighboring cabins but nothing that really kept us up at night. A far more obvious source of noise was the strong waves hitting the side of the ship causing loud thud noises. It was strong enough and frequent enough to keep us up on our first night on the ship. Although it was still a rocky ride for most of the cruise, the waves got a little calmer as the voyage went along and the loud thuds were less frequent. The only negative is that it's a long walk to everything. The dining room is at the back of the ship. The Lido is 8 decks up. The atrium is on deck 3 so at least that is convenient. We still really liked this cabin and its location. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was actually "felt" a bit larger than we'd expected. First cruise we've taken on the lower levels of a ship without balcony but pretty impressed with layout. Had the main beds configured to the queen sized and the sofa made into bed of our son. Cabin was below lifeboat 20 on the port side about in line with the funnel if you are looking at side view of ship. Very convenient to elevators and stairways to floors above. Our cabin attendant "Sigit" was friendly but really provided average service, though we did tip him pretty well at beginning of cruise. Only downside was that there is a ship access door which the crew opens about 45 mins before the ship arrives in port, which is about 2 0r 3 cabins forward and below. Quite a bit of banging and sounds associated with this process, so if you're a light sleeper you'll hear this commotion at about 5:30 to 6:00 AM as your port. Read entire member review >>
We found our cabin to be very comfortable, with two twin beds, three closets, a mini fridge, and a couch with small table. All the usual comforts you'd expect, hairdryer in the top drawer, shampoo and body wash in the shower. We asked for a bucket of ice and our room steward, Randy, made sure we had ice all the time. It was nice to have a window to see where we were, and so the sunrise could help wake us. There was a bit of noise from the stabilizers, I think, as we were mid ship, but it did not keep us from sleeping. Read entire member review >>
Very clean with lots of storage. Had a refrigerator which we didn't have on the Sunshine. Only negative was our oceanview window was so dirty making it hard to see out & take a picture.
Our cabin steward Ibarra was always ready to accommodate us from removing the heavy duvet & replacing it with a light blanket to always having ice per our request. Read entire member review >>
typical Carnival large outside midship port side. Private shower (no tub). 3 roomy closets plus extra drawers and cupboards. enough room to store everything for two people with space left over. Read entire member review >>
Our Room was 2331. The travel agent from Carnival suggested this room which he had stayed in in the past. It was fairly central with an elevator in each direction out the door. It was a room with a window which was adequate for us because we didn’t spend much time in the room other than for sleep. We never had a problem with noise especially because our room didn’t have an adjoining door to another room. The bathroom although not big was bigger than the last cruise ship we were on. The hardest part being centrally located was remembering which direction out of the door was aft and forward. The room attendant as I said before was very friendly and helpful.

The room was above an area where people were constantly banging and working....it was loud....Bathrooms were clean...tv stand was dusty in back of the tv...just like at home!!! Read entire member review >>
Great ocean view. We really liked the different animals made with the towels. The maids were incredibly fast and friendly. We would come back to our room after breakfast, and our rooms were already cleaned up. Room service was good. Read entire member review >>
The room was in the back corner and was very private. It sleeps only two. It was comfortable for the two of us and very quiet. There was plenty of space for storage. There is no cabin below it and the dining room is just above. You might hear a tiny bit of dining room music when they are singing, but that's it. There is some noise as the ship slows down in port or as it leaves, but otherwise that is the extent of it. Read entire member review >>
Plenty of storage space. In between the forward and midship elevators made it convenient to get anywhere on the ship. It seemed to take an extremely long time for the elevators to get to our floor. Read entire member review >>
We had a king bed with a sofa that converted to a bed. There was plenty of closet space and drawer space for 3 of us. The bathroom was fine. Our room steward Kingsley kept us clean and comfortable! The hallway was NOISY though with all the drunks running around. A good night sleep was hard to come by. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was near an elevator, which was sometimes handy. Next time I'd want to be on the OTHER end of the ship, though, closer to the lido deck rather than the adult-only area.
Easiest way to get across the ship from this room seemed to be go up the elevator to the Lido deck, walk shorter distance to other side, take elevator back down.
Plenty of storage in the room, nice view from the window, not a lot of noise. Read entire member review >>
Porthole overlooking the ocean, EXTREMELY noisy!!!, across from elevators and right above a tendering station, nice size, comfortable bed. Due to the extreme amounts of noise on a daily basis, I would NOT recommend this room. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was just the right amount of space for our family. There was condensation on the window though, so views were not clear. Noise was minimal except when coming into port. We could hear the anchor drop; sounded like a train running through the cabin! Read entire member review >>
Cabin 2450 and 2452 location good but a lot thruster noise and vibration. Ocean view very spacious with plenty of closet room. Bathroom size was good and amenities in the bathroom were a nice touch. Read entire member review >>
We were right near the elevators. You could hear the ding of the elevators but it was not excessive or obtrusive. The space provided was way more than we needed. The room set up was efficient. The window was large enough I could sit in it and often did. Read entire member review >>
My sister and mom were in 2462. The cabin was much bigger than our much more expensive balcony cabin, although the service and quality of neighbors was not as good as ours. Read entire member review >>
