Cabin was surfaced cleaned, the button on the toilet had a stain, and there was dust under the TV and on the lower shelves. Bring your own wipes and re-clean when you get in your cabin. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was big, had not yet been refurbished like the rest of the rooms on the deck. Room not clean at all, a used fake fingernail on the floor as we entered and many hairs on bathroom counter and walls. The condition of the bathroom was disgusting, worse than any motel I have ever stayed at. Steward was friendly but paid no attention to detail. Read entire member review >>
Partial clean window/door hand prints all over. Steward would't clean until he come clean at 6 PM. Left baggage pad on bed TV didn't work. Tech came 6 Pm next day after being reported once he left room went back out had to turn on manual. Read entire member review >>
No odd smells, worrisome sounds or negative vibes despite being above the engine room. Oceanview stateroom was larger than Royal or NCL, just as nicely equipped. Dated, perhaps, (CRT TV) but clean and the service we got from Ivor our steward was impeccable. (Perhaps the gratuity I gave him before we set sail helped but our ice bucket was never empty.) Beds were comfortable, everything worked. Only wish there was an electrical outlet closer to the bed. Read entire member review >>
We had an ocean view cabin. The window could have been a lot cleaner the bathroom wasn't much larger than an inside stateroom but I loved the vanity area there as a lot of counter space and mirrors. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was great. We had plenty of room. They did a nice job setting up the "Happy Honeymoon" decorations. The only problems we ran into were January 27 afternoon and January 28th morning, the toilet wouldn't flush. Pressed the button and there was nothing. No resistance, no mechanical feel. Nothing. This seemed to be a ship maintenance thing and we were victims of bad timing of it. The second time we heard a neighbor complaining to the steward of the same issue. When we returned from breakfast, we could hear it making noises, almost like it was trying to flush on its own. After a few minutes, it did indeed come back online and worked. Minor inconveniences.

Ample storage space, didn't even use it all! Appreciated the sitting area with the couch and enjoyed the ocean view. Being on the first floor wasn't as bad as I thought as far as getting around to other areas of the ship. Noisy every morning pulling into port, this room is right on top of the propellers.

We had three cabins on the Riviera Deck: 1279, 1291 & 1307 all ocean view rooms in the center of the ship. Very quiet except for the typical kids yelling while walking down the corridor. Port side made it possible to view the islands as we approached them. Simple access to the gangway for excursions. Read entire member review >>
We had a category 6A oceanview room. This included a king size bead and a sofa but no refrigerator like we had on our inside stateroom on our last Carnival cruise. I was expecting to have a little port hole to look through but was pleasantly surprised at the size of our window. One thing about the location of our state room was we were just above the thrusters. To some people this could have been a good thing or a bad thing. For both of us couples, it was not a bother. We were able to tell when we got into port in the morning by the noise of the thrusters going into reverse to slow the ship down and at night when we were leaving port (if we were in our room at the time). The closet space and overall storage space was more that adequate. Even the bathroom was relatively spacious (for a regular room on a ship). We were toward the end of the hallway so it was pretty quiet except for the first night when there were kids running up and down the hall, but that was the only time. Read entire member review >>
Shabby but decent size, quiet location apart from Wee Jimmy interupting our mornings with his banal announcements, walls thin, our next door neighbours shared all their passionate moments with us, great if you like that sort of thing
