Wow! Large room, huge bathroom, great location, great suite perks. If you can snag one of the four suites in the Havana area, do it!

Our cabin was nicely appointed. Loved the Havana decor. The bathroom was wonderful. So nice to have a shower that doesn't give you claustrophobia. And the seat was a nice touch as well as the extra amenities: shampoo, bath gel and lotion. Also enjoyed the better quality towels. Liked having a little separation between the bedroom and the living area. Only complaint was that the couch extension made it impossible for one person to sit at the desk and the other person be able to maneuver around them. The swinging chair on the balcony was extra special for me. Could go out at anytime and swing away with the breeze. Did miss a little that I didn't have the ocean view right outside the balcony. The walkway did keep the view from being good. Read Less

Again Cabin was fantastic for those seeking a little more privacy this is it. It's almost like you have your own little cruise ship. The Havana Cabana and all of it's areas was fantastic. I'm on this ship again in March and wish I would have booked a Cabana suite again but now that I know we are checking everyday for a cancellation so that we can jump on it. Read Less

Room poorly laid out and small. Not enough closet space. Bathroom ok, but nothing special. A/C was either too hot or too cold. Staff would come in to make the bed, and turn the A/C to the coldest setting. Asked for twin beds, steward was not bothered and left it a king size, and did not change the sheets for a week. Same 'stain' on the top sheet was there through the entire Med cruise. It was changed for the TA. Read Less

The Suite was just beautiful, it was very spacious for two people. We dealt with bass noise from the band playing in the bar until late each night and slamming of the hallway for leading to it, however earplugs helped. The cabana patio was not as private as I had hoped however and had a neighbouring cabana guest come into my balcony and switch cushions from my chair (hers was left out in rain so she helped herself to my dry one)...Caught her by surprise when I opened the door to come out and barely saw her out after. Complained to guest services after confronting her directly and received an apology. The large rainshower in the suite is lovely, wish I had one like that at home now! Our room steward was wonderful in the beginning very attentive and addressed us by name mid cruise she became more MIA and the service declined a bit. We were able to take part in the new suite perks including free laundry, waters, and other surprises and goodies given to us throughout the cruise. Read Less

I absolutely loved my Havana suite. The view was beautiful, the glass partitions did not take away from it in the least. I allowed myself every night a couple of hours to just relax in the swing, enjoying the peace and quiet. Many people have expressed disappointment in the lack of a full size hammock, but I didn't miss it at all. There is also a full size lounger, a kind of "half" lounger with a footstool, and a matching table. The amazing part was, 99% of the time, I was completely alone when out on my patio. I rarely saw any of my neighbors, other than the English lady right next door who took a daily nap in her lounger. I can't imagine booking this beautiful area and not enjoying it to the fullest. Of course, there may have been others that I just could not see. Surprisingly, the patios are much more private than you would think. The solid partition between patios gives you as much, if not more, privacy than a standard balcony room. There is so much room......I had breakfast there every morning, my group of 5 could easily hang out there, and I found my patio area to be much cooler than the Havana pool area. Towards the end of my cruise, I actually thought to look up at the balconies above me. It was a bit shocking how small they looked and how little space they provided as compared to the Havana patios. Thinking back at past cruises, I realized I used and enjoyed my Havana patio probably 100% more than I ever did a balcony in past cruises. It's safe to say, I'm a fan, and I have to applaud Carnival and whoever came up with the design of these cabins. Aside from how wonderful the Havana "cabanas" are, the mere convenience of these cabins makes them worth booking. I never went to the deck area through my cabin door, but instead, chose to always enter and exit from my patio. Plus, being on the Promenade deck, everything you could possibly need is right there. The Havana bar, which spills out onto the Havana pool area, was often pretty happening, but we could just barely hear the music on our patio. My daughter said they did not hear it, even in their inside cabin. Speaking of which, this is one thing that kind of bothered me.....a lack of music. Someone had said that Cuban music could be heard, piped in to the Havana patios. This was not the case on my cruise. In fact, there was no music AT ALL, even during the day, at the Havana pool area. This didn't bother me too much, since I was looking for the relaxation. But my 23 year old daughter said that the Havana area is, "boring and full of old people". Ok, I guess that means me. She much preferred the craziness of the Lido deck, and believe me, it was crazy. We walked up there several times on our sea days and it was sooo crowded, and LOUD. So to finish up my review of the Havana area.......I loved it, and wouldn't change a thing other than the one thing they already changed, which was raising the time of public access to 7:00 PM. (And yes, the crew was quick to enforce armbands). The area was swamped by 5:03 by teens and children, so at that time, I headed to my patio. But since that has been corrected, I can't imagine cruising now in any other cabin when the Havana is offered. HOWEVER, I will say, for those looking to party down and the music, dancing, and hairy chest contest, this probably is not the cabin category for you. Like I said, I doubt my daughter would ever want to book one of these cabins again, well, at least not until she is older. Read Less
