The Best Rooms on Carnival Cruise Ships
Choosing a room on a cruise is critical to the whole cruise experience. It is an important decision that can distinguish a good trip from a bad one. You may want to pay a little more for a room with a view. Think of how often you think you will stay in a room, and plan your room and amenities accordingly. For those who are not familiar with the rooms that Carnival offers, it is critical to be educated about the different types before you head out on your cruise.
Type of Room
Carnival cruise prices differ depending on the type of room. Carnival rooms include interior, ocean view, balcony suite and suite. The interior room is the cheapest, and they progressively get more expensive the more luxurious the amenities. The best rooms in the Carnival fleet are the penthouse suite, which features a balcony, a walk-in closet and a whirlpool bath. Even if you are in an interior room, you benefit from the space and comfort that Carnival offers. You can also customize your room by adding extra features such as amenities and pampering services.
Another thing to consider when choosing the best room on Carnival is the deck or level of the room. Carnival cruise ships typically have 11 levels, from Riviera (lowest) to Spa (highest) deck. The higher you go up, the more expensive the rooms are. Consider your needs, such as light and space. You may find that an interior stateroom at a higher level is comparable in price to an ocean view room in a lower level. Different people will choose different things, depending on their priorities. The best and the most expensive level in the fleet is the Spa level, where you can get breathtaking views of the ocean everyday right out your window at a high vantage point.
You may want to select a room close to a particular facility that you will be frequenting aboard the cruise. The best rooms in Carnival depend on the type of activity you want to engage in. Carnival suggests that you book a room in the middle of the ship if you want to be in the center of the action, near the restaurant, casinos and lounges. You may also want to book a room near the pool if you plan on spending a lot of time in that area. You can choose a room on a couple of locations in the ship: forward, midship and aft. Many people have commented on Cruise Critic that the aft balconies are spacious and have an incredible view of the wake. Keep in mind that on a cruise ship, you are paying for both the space and the view. Remember that the more expensive the room is, the better the space or the view will likely be.
