Everything you want to know about cabins and suites on Carnival Cruise Line ships

Editor’s note: This is a recurring post, regularly updated with new information.

Picking a cabin on a Carnival Cruise Line ship isn’t nearly as complicated as picking a cabin on, say, a Royal Caribbean or a Celebrity Cruises ship.

Unlike some of its biggest competitors, Carnival isn’t known for a huge range of cabin categories on its vessels.

The vast majority of the accommodations on Carnival ships fall into one of three broad buckets: Windowless “inside” cabins, oceanview cabins and balcony cabins.

You’ll find relatively few suites on Carnival ships. Each of the vessels in Carnival’s recent Vista Class series, for instance, offer fewer than 75 suites. Each of the line’s earlier Conquest Class ships have around 50 suites. The oldest Fantasy Class vessels have 28 suites and 26 junior suites.

This is in part due to Carnival’s focus on affordability. The typical Carnival customer isn’t in the market for a super fancy, high-priced suite.

That said, Carnival has seen the success that some of its competitors have had with a bigger range of upscale accommodations, and it’s eyeing more suites for future vessels. The line’s soon-to-debut Mardi Gras has 180 suites — more than twice the number of its most recent ships.

Note that Carnival’s oldest ships — those that are part of the 1990s-built Fantasy Class — have relatively few balcony cabins by today’s standards (after retrofitting, several have around 150 balcony cabins, out of a total of more than 1,000 cabins in all). In part because of this, Carnival is beginning to phase these ships out of its fleet.

A Carnival Cruise Line cabin primer

As is typical for many cruise ships, Carnival vessels offer cabins in four broad categories: Windowless “inside” cabins, oceanview cabins, balcony cabins and suites.

On newer Carnival ships, a significant portion of cabins are balcony cabins — the category of cabin that everyone wants these days. But the ratio of balcony cabins to non-balcony cabins on Carnival’s newer ships isn’t nearly as high as you’ll find on the newer ships of some rival lines such as Royal Caribbean. About 44% of the 2,004 cabins on Carnival’s two-year-old Carnival Panorama are balcony cabins, for instance. Compare that to the 65% of cabins on Royal Caribbean’s two-year-old Symphony of the Seas that are balcony cabins.

As noted above, Carnival ships also have fewer suites than you’ll find on the ships of some of its rival lines. By contrast, the line’s newer ships have a higher percentage of inside cabins than you’ll find on the newer ships of some rival lines.

Here’s a breakdown of the broad cabin categories on Carnival Panorama, which is typical of the line’s newer ships:

Inside cabins: 789 (39%)
Oceanview cabins: 254 (13%)
Balcony cabins: 891 (44%)
Suites: 70 (3%)

On older Carnival ships (and, in general, all older cruise ships), there are far fewer balcony cabins. Only 10% of the 1,028 cabins on Carnival’s oldest vessel, the 1991-built Carnival Ecstasy, are balcony cabins.

On Carnival Ecstasy, inside cabins and ocean-view cabins make up the majority (85% in total) of accommodations, and suites account for 5% of rooms:

Inside cabins: 408 (40%)
Oceanview cabins: 468 (46%)
Balcony cabins: 98 (10%)
Suites: 54 (5%)

The takeaway here is that you’ll have a tougher time locking down a balcony cabin on an older Carnival ship than on a newer vessel. If you’re planning a cruise on one of the line’s older vessels and a balcony cabin is a must, you’ll want to book early to make sure you get one.

You’ll also want to book early if you’re aiming for a suite. An old saw in the cruise industry is that “ships sell from the top and the bottom.” That is, the first cabins on any vessel to sell out are the most expensive cabins, which are the suites, and the least expensive cabins, which typically are the inside cabins. The “middle” sells last.

Design-wise, Carnival’s cabins and suites are fairly basic and comfortable, if not super stylish. Cabins on recently unveiled or overhauled vessels have a soothing palette of creams and blues. Cabinetry in these rooms is a crisp and clean faux wood. Cabin bathrooms are neutral.

Inside cabins on Carnival Cruise Line ships

These are the cabins you stay in when you’re on a tight budget. On any Carnival ship, they almost always are the least-expensive option when you’re booking a cabin, and you often can save considerable money by booking an inside cabin versus an ocean-view or higher-level cabin.

What you’ll give up, of course, is that ocean view. Your room will have four walls and no windows offering a glimpse of the outside world.

On many cruise ships, inside cabins are smaller than oceanview and balcony cabins. But on Carnival ships, that’s not always the case. On Carnival Panorama, most inside cabins measure 185 square feet. That’s the same size as the interior area of some oceanview and most balcony cabins on the ship (not including the extra square footage from the balcony).

Related: Why inside cabins aren’t as bad as you think

Inside cabins on Royal Caribbean’s Symphony of the Seas, by contrast, measure just 149 square feet — quite a bit less than the inside cabins on Carnival Panorama.

Note that, in a quirk of the cabin categorization system at Carnival, there are a few inside cabins on some Carnival ships that do, indeed, have a view to the outside world. These cabins either have an obstructed view (often due to lifeboats) or a porthole, such that the view isn’t all that great. For that reason, the line classifies them as inside cabins.

Oceanview cabins on Carnival Cruise Line ships

With an oceanview cabin, you get a window looking out to the sea but not an attached balcony where you can sit outside and enjoy the fresh air.

Carnival’s newer ships have relatively few such cabins, as generally cabins that face outwards now are built with balconies. But older Carnival ships are loaded with oceanview cabins.

Oceanview cabins on Carnival ships can sometimes be bigger than inside cabins and even bigger than balcony cabins (when comparing their interior space). On Carnival Panorama, some oceanview cabins measure 185 square feet — the same as inside cabins. But there also are bigger “standard” oceanview cabins that measure 220 square feet and “deluxe” oceanview cabins that measure 230 square feet.

Balcony cabins on Carnival Cruise Line ships

Balcony cabins are what everyone wants these days, and Carnival is building its newest ships with far more of them than in the past. As noted above, about 44% of the cabins on the line’s recently unveiled Carnival Panorama are balcony cabins. But that percentage will jump to 56% on the soon-to-debut Mardi Gras and a sister vessel, Carnival Celebration, that is scheduled to arrive in 2022.

The typical Carnival balcony cabin has a contemporary look with clean lines and relatively minimalist furniture. They’ll typically offer twin beds that can be converted into a king bed, a built-in desk area and a sofa that often pulls out into an additional bed. Some have pull-down bunks to create more sleeping spaces. They typically measure around 185 square feet, not including the balcony area, which often measures 35 square feet.

Note that on some Carnival ships, there are specific categories of balcony cabins that have larger balconies than most — and are wonderful for sitting out and watching the waves. Often these are at the back of the ships overlooking the wake.

Related: 6 reasons to book a balcony cabin on your next cruise

On Carnival Panorama, for instance, there are “Family Harbor” and “Havana” balcony cabins overlooking the wake that have 60-square-foot balconies. That’s 71% more balcony space than the typical balcony cabin on the ship.

Carnival Panorama also has “Havana Cabana” balcony cabins that have even bigger, 100-square-foot balconies.

Suites on Carnival Cruise Line ships

As noted above, Carnival ships generally don’t offer a lot of suites. And, for the most part, the suites that they do have are relatively modest in size and amenities as compared to the suites at some of the line’s rivals.

The biggest suites on Carnival Panorama, the ship’s eight Grand Suites, have just 345 square feet of interior space, plus an 85-square-feet balcony. Contrast that to the biggest suites on Royal Caribbean ships, which can measure more than 1,500 square feet.

Suites on Carnival ships also haven’t traditionally come with butlers and access to private concierge lounges like the suites on many other vessels.

Still, some of this is about to change with the debut of Carnival’s new Mardi Gras. Carnival is going big with the suites on the groundbreaking, 5,200-passenger vessel — the biggest Carnival ship ever.

Scheduled to begin sailing with paying passengers in May of this year, Mardi Gras will feature two sprawling Presidential Suites that measure 1,120 square feet — bigger than any other accommodations in the line’s fleet.

Located at the top of the ship on Deck 17, the complexes will have separate living and sleeping areas as well as the most expansive balconies in the Carnival fleet — all unusual-for-Carnival features. Measuring more than 600 square feet, the balconies will, notably, offer a lounging area with a large sunbed as well as a private outdoor hot tub and shower.

Related: 7 reasons you should splurge for a suite on a cruise ship

The Presidential Suites will be among 180 suites on Mardi Gras, the most ever for a Carnival ship.

The ship will have 11 different categories of suites in all, four of which are part of a new premium “Excel” category of suites that come with extra amenities and access to a new-for-the-line, resort-style enclave at the top of the ship called Loft 19.

In addition to the two Presidential Suites, the Excel suites will include a dozen 861-square foot Excel Aft Suites that overlook the back of the ship and boast separate living rooms and bedrooms as well as large wraparound balconies with hot tubs. Slightly smaller will be a dozen 710-square-foot Excel Corner Suites that will also offer separate sleeping and lounging areas and wraparound balconies. A step down are six smaller Excel Suites that will measure 614 square feet.

Every one of the suites in those categories will be bigger than any suite found on Carnival Panorama.

Passengers staying in all four categories of Excel suites will have access to a dedicated concierge phone line and guaranteed dining times at Mardi Gras’s extra-charge specialty restaurants (with the exception of Japanese eatery Bonsai Teppanyaki and the Chef’s Table). Other upgraded amenities for Excel suite passengers will include complimentary Bottomless Bubbles soda packages, room service and laundry service, sparkling wine upon arrival and upgraded toiletries in bathrooms.

The new Loft 19 enclave planned for Mardi Gras will offer full bar service, a private pool surrounded by sun loungers and cabanas available for rent.

Bottom Line

Fun-focused Carnival offers a solid mix of cabins on its vessels for a range of price points. If you’re looking for an inexpensive vacation option, the inside cabins on Carnival ships are more spacious than the inside cabins you’ll find on the ships of some rival lines. Oceanview cabins on Carnival ships also can be larger than normal for the category. Balcony cabins on Carnival ships hold their own in size against most competitors. Just don’t expect a huge number of suites when sailing with Carnival.

8 best balcony cabins on cruise ships

It's no surprise that balcony cabins are the most popular cruise ship cabin type. People love to have a private veranda where they can read, sip a drink, and gaze out to sea, away from the hubbub of the pool deck. But not all cruise ship balconies are the same – and you might be wondering which is the best room to book.

Whether you’re looking for an extra-large balcony or more amenities in the room attached to that balcony, a little research will reveal which veranda cabins stand out as better than average.

To save you time, we’ve compiled a list of the eight best balcony cabins on cruise ships, in our opinion, as well as some helpful hints for making the most of your balcony room.

1. Aft balcony cabins

Aft balcony

Aft balcony cabins top our list for two reasons: space and views.

Aft is a nautical adjective meaning “toward the back of the ship.” Aft balcony staterooms are therefore located at the rear of the ship and must fit the nonstandard shape of the ship’s stern. Instead of the cookie-cutter design of most balcony rooms, these cabins are often elongated or oddly shaped, with extra-long balconies. Aft balcony cabins are the best when you want more space inside and out.

Plus, the verandas overlook the ship’s wake, the trail of churned waters a boat or ship leaves behind. Many cruisers find wake views relaxing, even though you’re technically facing backwards and looking out at where you’ve just been (not where you’re going). If you’re one who loves to stand at the railing at the back of the ship and gaze out at that wake, an aft balcony cabin is the best choice for you.

2. Hump balcony cabins

Hump balcony

You won’t find the funny name “hump balconies” on any cruise line’s website, but cruise fans know where to look for these extra-roomy verandas on specific ships in the Royal Caribbean and Celebrity Cruises fleets. 

Some ships, including ones in Royal Caribbean’s Radiance class and Celebrity’s Solstice class, are not entirely straight along the sides. In certain areas, the ship’s design bulges outward – in other words, a hump. Cabins located where the ship begins to jut out often have extra-large balconies to accommodate the curve or angle of the ship’s superstructure. 

To find these balcony rooms, look at the deck plans and you’ll see where these special balcony cabins are located. Check on message boards or social media if you want other cruisers to confirm that the specific cabin number you want to book definitely has a large balcony.

3. Corner wrap balcony cabins

Aquatheater balcony on Allure of the Seas

Where can you find some of the biggest and best cruise ship balcony cabins? At the corners of the ship.

Corner cabins are like the coveted corner office, with windows facing either forward or backward, as well as to one side. This location leads to cabins with lots of light and balconies that wrap around the corners of the ship. For example, Carnival has premium vista balcony cabins located on the aft corners of certain ships. These extra-long balconies are a boon for veranda fans. 

The extra space can often accommodate a full lounger in addition to regular balcony chairs and table. That makes these corner wrap balconies ideal for cruisers who want to stretch out and nap in the sun.

Note that many cruise ships now place their swanky suites at the corners of the ship, so the wrap balconies may only be available to travelers booking the highest tiers of accommodations.

Forward or aft, port or starboard, high or low? Figure out the best cruise ship cabin location for your vacation preferences. 

4. Cove balcony cabins

Carnival Cove balcony

Cove balconies are a Carnival specialty that are best for cruisers who are looking for privacy and the closest verandas to the water line.

Because these rooms are located on low decks – as low as Deck 2 on some ships – the balconies are fully enclosed by the ship’s steel structure, with a large cut-out open to the sea breeze. Your neighbors can’t peek around and spy on you from their balconies, so your private alfresco space really is private!

These balconies are larger than the standard verandas on the decks above, so you get more space to enjoy all that fresh air. They’re also closer to the water, so if you want a chance to feel that sea splash on your face or scan the waves for dolphins, the cove balconies are the ones to book.

5. Infinite veranda cabins

Infinite verandah

Celebrity is the only big-ship cruise line to sport infinite veranda cabins, though some river cruise ships offer them as well. They’re found exclusively on Celebrity Edge and Apex and represent the next generation of cruise ship balcony design.

Balconies are great when the sun is out, but on rainy or cold itineraries, they’re wasted space. Celebrity’s design team sought to solve that problem by creating a versatile area that could transform from a balcony into a sun room fully enclosed within your cabin. These cabins are excellent for cruisers on colder-weather itineraries, or who want the option of fresh air but don’t tend to spend much time kicking it on their balcony.

With an infinite veranda, there is no permanent wall between the cabin and the balcony. Instead, the balcony area is enclosed on its outer edges with glass windows; the one facing the sea can roll down just like a car window at the touch of a button. Accordion-fold doors can be closed to separate the open-to-the-air “veranda” from the cabin interior. When not in use, roll up the windows, open the doors, and you have a roomier cabin with a sunny seating area at one end.

6. Spa balcony cabins

Spa balcony room on Mardi Gras

When you need a Zen-like retreat at sea, a spa balcony cabin is the way to go. Unlike our previous choices, the balconies on these rooms – found on most major lines – are typically the standard variety. It’s the interior portion of the cabin that rates them among the best.

Spa cabins are located close to the spa, which on most ships is on the upper decks. (Remember: The higher the deck, the better the balcony view.) The décor in spa balcony cabins is often Asian inspired, with a color palette of earth tones to create a calming ambiance. Bathrooms may feature rain showers or massaging jets and spa brand in-cabin toiletries.

Plus, spa balcony cabins come with all kinds of perks, depending on the cruise line. These may include fancier robes and slippers, a pillow menu, complimentary thermal suite or exercise class passes, and yoga mats.

7. Family balcony cabins

Deluxe Family Oceanview Stateroom on the Disney Dream

If you’re traveling with the kids, the best balcony cabin for you is one designed with families in mind. Many ships have fancy family suites, but you can also find more affordable balcony cabins that can sleep up to five.

Disney’s Deluxe Family Oceanview Stateroom with Veranda can sleep five; the pull-down bunk beds  have a Peter Pan mural on the ceiling above. These rooms cater to families with split baths (sink and shower-tub combo in one room, toilet and sink in another), childproof balcony locks, and a privacy curtain to separate kid and parent sleeping areas.

Carnival’s Family Harbor balcony cabins are typically cove balconies or aft balconies, so they combine  family-friendly perks with excellent locations. These cabins are tops because they give families access to the Family Harbor lounge, with snacks, games, a concierge, and one free night of Carnival’s late-night group babysitting.

Celebrity’s Family Veranda Staterooms can sleep five on Solstice-class ships and feature a separate inside kids’ room with bunk beds plus a pullout sofa in the living area. (Configurations vary on the line’s other ships.) Look for these and other family-designated balcony cabins when you want the best digs for the kids.

8. Suites with balconies

Aquatheater living room

For the most over-the-top balconies, you do need to book a suite. It makes sense that the nicest cabins onboard should have the best balconies, and you’d be amazed at some of these tricked-out verandas.

The best suite balconies feature full loungers or padded patio furniture, dining areas, bars, and hot tubs. Some suites, such as Royal Caribbean’s two-story lofts, have access to two or even three private balconies.  

But it gets crazier than that! Enchanted Princess’ Sky Suite has a dining table, daybed, telescope, bar, and TV on its veranda. Royal Caribbean’s Ultimate Family Suite has a Jacuzzi, ping-pong table, and kiddie climbing wall on its balcony. The line’s AquaTheater Suites have large balconies with primo views of all the AquaTheater shows – no tickets or queuing required.

Your balcony cabin questions answered

Woman on balcony

While we’re on the subject of balcony cabins, we thought we’d address some of the most commonly asked questions about our favorite cruise room category.

What is the difference between a balcony and a veranda on a cruise ship?

Nothing. Cruise lines (and use the terms interchangeably. However, Carnival’s Havana Cabana cabins and Holland America’s lanai cabins feature patio-style outside space that is along a public walkway and different from a private balcony – even if the patio area or patio furnishings are for your use only.

Sunset on balcony

Is a balcony on a cruise ship worth it?

Definitely! Unless you’re the type who’s never in their stateroom, a balcony cabin is the ideal cruise room because it offers extra lounging space and easy access to fresh air. We love how relaxing it is to sit in peace, gazing out at the sea views.

Compare that to the pool deck experience, where you may have to fight the crowds for a lounge chair and be forced to listen to loud music, poolside movies, and your neighbor’s conversation when you long for quiet time. You can see why it’s nice to have a private getaway.

If you’re not sure, read more about inside vs. outside cabins to see if either of these cruise rooms is more your speed.

Celebrity balcony

Can you sleep on the balcony of a cruise ship? 

It’s not recommended to spend the night sleeping on your balcony, but no one will stop you. Cat naps in the sun, however, are highly encouraged. 

If your balcony has a fully reclining lounge chair, you could conceivably stretch out and go to sleep. However, you might get wet from sea spray or early-morning ship cleaning, and it can be chilly outside at night.

Don’t risk bringing the comforter outside; if it gets dirty or ruined, you might have to pay a fine. On a standard balcony, we can’t even imagine finding a comfortable spot to snooze.

Junior suite balcony

Can you smoke on a cruise ship balcony?

Please don’t light cigarettes or cigars on cruise ship balconies. It’s a fire hazard, and if caught, you will be fined.

You’ve decided to go on a cruise for your next vacation—thrilled that you’ll get the chance to explore more destinations and experiences than you’d normally see on your own, and for a value you couldn’t possibly pass up. Now that you’ve booked it, one of the first choices you’ll need to make is what type of stateroom—or accommodation—to reserve. Generally, there are four main categories of staterooms: interior, ocean view, balcony or suite, and each one offers a unique experience.

Interior staterooms tend to be the starting point in terms of pricing and square footage, and they are ideal for travelers on the go who don’t plan to spend much time in their rooms beyond sleeping and showering. If you couldn’t do without a view of the water from the comfort of your room, though, you can opt for a similar room but with an ocean view.

But one of the most common questions for many first-time cruisers is whether or not to upgrade to a balcony stateroom. Accommodations with balconies, including suites, can be more lush and spacious, and the balcony gives you enviable views and a private place to sit outside. Considering it? Here are the times when you definitely don’t want to miss the chance to indulge in one.

1. While in The Mediterranean

It’s been said that a Greek Isles cruise is like sailing through a breathtaking postcard, with each vista more awe-inspiring than the last. It’s where crystal blue water dance on black sand beaches, just below adorable whitewashed houses dotting the cliffs above. These cinematic views take on a whole new meaning when you’re taking them in from your private balcony.

2. Exploring Alaska

Some travelers think balconies are best reserved for warm-weather destinations, but with more coastline than all 50 states combined, Alaska offers sights you’re unlikely to see anywhere else. You’ll want a front-row seat to watch the majestic tidewater glaciers float by and observe the Land of the Last Frontier’s wildlife, including humpback whales and the largest concentration of bald eagles in the world.

3. For Families

Especially on longer cruises, families in particular might desire more space. And having your own outdoor space for reading or relaxing while the kids nap inside, or for having an additional spot for snacking or playing games, feels especially decadent during your days at sea or even in port.

4. If You Like Feeling Steady

A midship cabin is the best location for anyone who prefers not to feel the ocean’s movement when cruising. Having a balcony also enables you to consistently focus on the horizon line, which tends to keep what you see in sync with the ship’s movement, thereby minimizing any feelings of motion.

5. If You Need Alone Time

While many of today’s cruise ships are large enough to accommodate thousands of guests without making anyone feel crowded, there aren’t many places where you can find solitude in your very own space. So if you feel the need to get away from it all—especially when on vacation—a balcony makes for an ideal private getaway within your getaway. Bonus: solo travelers now can even enjoy a “Super Studio” on Royal Caribbean’s Quantum-class ships without paying a supplement.

6. If You’re An Avid People-Watcher

Royal Caribbean has pioneered a new category of stateroom onboard their Oasis class ships: balcony cabins that overlook the ship’s exciting interiors. These rooms can have a “Boardwalk View” or a “Central Park View,” and give guests the option of being outside of their cabins while people watching and enjoying the sights and sounds onboard the ship at any given moment.

As you plan your next cruise, think about where you’re going, how long you’re going to be gone and what you want for your experience onboard. Check out Royal Caribbean’s fleet to see various deck plans and staterooms before you book.
