These Mid-Ship Balcony Staterooms are located on a middle deck and offer easy access to great restaurants, activities and more. This stateroom includes two lower beds that convert to a queen-size bed, a convertible sofa to accommodate more, a sitting area and balcony with fantastic views.
Cabins are also small. As previously mentioned, we got a balcony, which was about half the size of the balcony on, say, Carnival Valor or Triumph. There is enough room for the two beds (squashed together to form a King), a small desk, a bare two-seater mini-couch, and that's it, really. No outlets by the bed, which is where you could really use some outlets to charge your phone as you're reading it before sleeping. Read entire member review >>
The only negative about our cabin was that the sink drain line leaked. At first it leaked significantly, soaking towels under it - not flowing fast but dripping fairly often. After reporting it 3 times and having it worked on 3 times, it still leaked a little, dripping occasionally onto an extra towel on the shelf. That was workable for us.
This cabin's balcony view is unobstructed. I was so happy to see that for myself! I had seen a video of cabin 8114's view and was hopeful, since we upgraded to a balcony but didn't choose our room. Great view!! Be wary of the view from 7th deck balconies - the lifeboats are stored there.
Otherwise the cabin was just as pictured and we certainly thought the additional $200/person to upgrade to a balcony room was well worth it. It was delightful to watch the lava flow into the ocean from our own balcony! Read entire member review >>
Cabin was great located on the starboard side above the life boats which were used to go a shore in one port. Fun to watch them maneuver them into place from our balcony. We were traveling with my parents and had adjourning cabins. We have been on other ships that had a better set up. Only one door between the rooms, not two as in other ships, so we left the door closed for most of the trip. Read entire member review >>
Very small. We had not anticipated the small bathroom. Could barely turn around in the shower. (We usually get mini-suites, but apparently POA has none.) The beds were comfortable. We were disappointed that our balcony was on top of a tender. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was great. Midship & right by the elevators & stairs. Very convenient for getting around. We used the stairs most of the time. Loved sitting out on the balcony. Stored our empty suitcases under the bed. Had enough storage space for all our clothing. Bed was very comfortable. Read entire member review >>
