Sailed Eastern Caribbean On 07/13/2014 Balcony Room on Starboard Side
If the ship faces the same way each time it docks then port side would have been better.
I know that some consider Carnival a "lower class" of ship and passengers, but they are the fun ship and do know/remember how to have a good time.
good cabin. clean. good size. not too far forward. not too close to elevator or stairs so it kept the noise down. port side would have been better choice for docking, if boat docks in save direction every time. there was a lot of wind on our cruise.
