Cabin 8363, plenty of room with lots of storage. Show needs re tiling in both of the rooms we had (8365). Other than that the room was good and comfortable. Location was very good, up one stairs and we were on lido deck aft. Dining, pool and bar. Heard no excessive noise from the ship. Read Less

Cabin 8356. No good. Too noisy from equipment room and pantry across the hall. The cabin itself was nice. Nice balcony on deck 8, but way too much noise. They woke me up each day at 5:00AM.

The cabin we had on Lido Deck was a 8D balcony and it looked pretty much the same as all the other balcony cabins we've had on Carnival. Only difference was that since this shop was older there were some things that are not as up-to-date as other ships but everything worked fine. The bathroom was older looking (tiles, hair dryer, etc) the TVs had no interactive menus on them which we missed, and there was no refrigerator in the room like we've had on other ships. Read Less

Cabin 8265 - Great location for minimizing swells. Directly across from the atrium aft elevator. Issues - Number 1 issue is NO REFRIGERATOR. When I called the service desk, I was told that this ship did not include them in balcony cabins. There were a few available for medical purposes, but they had to be reserved ahead of time. All of my previous cruises were in balcony cabins with a refrigerator. Made due with an over-sized bucket filled with ice. Paid tips to room steward daily to keep it filled. - Hinge on cabinet door was broken. Repaired after three days. - Remote control for TV not working. Turned in for repair, and never saw it again. - Switch for air-conditioner was hard to find, and no instructions. - Location of bed was away from the walled mirrors. - No tie-back for curtain to maximize daylight into the cabin. - TV was very old and out-dated, thus took up a lot of room on the shelf. A flat-screen model would enhance the cabin and provide additional shelving space. - Evening bed chocolates were awful. Cheap-tasting and waxy. (Celebrity uses Lindt chocolates that are awesome!) They shouldn't even bother, if they aren't going to get something better. Positives - Location with regard to elevators, daily trips to shore, ship movement, and muster station. - Minimal noise from elevators, floor above, or floor below. - Debarkation number was 8 (out of 25). - Balcony and two chairs with small table was sufficient. - Privacy barrier on poles and between the balcony wall spaces was very good, allowing for comfort and freedom to enjoy it. - Bathroom shower size was sufficient and well-stocked with towels daily. - Bed was comfortable, pillows needed to be doubled up. - Towel animals were varied nightly and entertaining. - Room stewards were friendly and attentive. I rate this cabin a 3.5 out of 5. The easy improvements to bring it to a 5 are: #1 - refrigerator, #2 - TV upgrade, #3 - Bed location to mirrors, and #4 - Evening chocolates. Read Less

We were on deck 8, just below the Lido buffet restaurant. Others with whom we spoke, that also had deck 8 cabins, agreed it was often noisy during sleep hours. Deck 6 cabins are just above the very public deck 5. So Deck 7 would be the ideal choice for a balcony cabin. Our room was otherwise decent in size, great for storage and featured an above average bathroom. Read Less
