With room for up to three guests, these Oceanview Staterooms come with two lower beds that convert into a queen-size bed and a convertible sofa to sleep one more, as well as a porthole that offers a great view and a sitting area.
Cabin was very nicely laid out, with lots of closet space, but the cabin was a bit noisy. There was some kind of a pump or machine (outside the cabin, somewhere below?) making a regular loud clunk 24 hours a day. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was great. I felt I had lots of room, with plenty of storage. Shelves and baskets in the closet. Drawers, shelves, and cabinets above and next to the desk. The bathroom was round, and had plenty of room for one at a time, Two could be in the bathroom, but it gets a bit tighter. Lots of storage and hanging space in the bathroom.
The climate controls for the room worked well. When we left we had temperatures near 90°F. As we reached some of the most southerly points, temps were in the 40's & 50's °F. I need to reduce the A/C to warmer temps to heat the room. I always felt very comfortable. Of course I needed to start to cool things again as we moved back into 70's & 80's again.
The porthole window was quite large, had a nice shelf, and a heavy blackout curtain. I used cloths pins to close it tight, which made the room dark when needed. I loved the light pouring in during the day. As others mentioned, I would look out to determine what I needed to wear based on the weather.
The steward kept the cabin clean and well serviced. Read entire member review >>
As stated before, we save money on the room and splurge on excursions. I was mildly surprised with the window. It let in nice light and helped prepare us for what to wear (raining or sunny). Nice to look at the scenery. The room was clean and very well. kept. I would probably only suggest a few things:
1 - Add an On-Demand, where the TV watcher can choose a movie to watch. Nice way to unwind late at night.
2 - Provide the outside weather on the TV and what the forecast for the destination is...sort of weird that this was not available through the TV.
3 - Add more shelving and hanging options or configurations. I liked the height of the bed to accommodate sliding the larger roller luggage underneath.
4 - Add a tiny, dimmable, night-light to see the bathroom door handle or light switches.
5 - Add chargers to both sides of the bed head so that my wife and I can charge our phones separately and use our phone alarms.
6 - Couldn't hear hardly any PA announcements from our room. So don't know what we were missing. Read entire member review >>
We got an oceanview room with a port hole. The port hole was a pretty large port hole, and was pretty surprised how large it was. The room itself was a little smaller than what i have encountered on Carnival ships. The room was always cleaned, but dissapointed we never got any towel animals made on any of the days. The shower was a pretty small shower as well Read entire member review >>
Cabin 4232 on the bottom deck, stbd side midships was midway between the elevators, so it was a long walk either way. Storage was average, but a little cramped for a long cruise. Great cabin steward. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 4247 I liked the location. It is starboard aft which meant we had a view of the ports as we pulled in and out. It's low and we could watch the wake of the boat. It is also very convenient to the 7 Seas MDR. There are only a few elevators that go all the way down to deck 4. It was very quiet, no foot traffic and far away enough from the 1 elevator we never heard it. Gabina was our cabin steward and she was wonderful. Read entire member review >>
