Suite Retreat: The Most Romantic Cabins for Couples on Carnival Cruise Ships

Cruises are one of the most romantic ways to travel. It’s a fact! Sea air, exotic destinations, oceanside strolls and adventures at every turn? Major swoon! It’s only right that you continue your celebration of love by choosing the stateroom that’s right for you and your loved one. From private balconies to breakfast in bed, join us as we explore some of the best cruise cabins for couples to make any Carnival vacation dreamy.

A Stateroom With a View

Available on all of Carnival’s ships, not only do balcony staterooms offer more space, but they’re also designed for maximum sea breeze basking and, of course, offer unbeatable views. Whether you’re enjoying a nightcap on the balcony or kicking back on the couch, these cabins set the stage for relaxation, privacy and romance.

Our Havana Staterooms and Suites, available on select ships, transform your experience into an oasis of privacy, tranquility, and total luxury. Looking to take a dip? Your room will never be far from the Havana Pool & Bar, where you’ll have exclusive access. Take your vacation up several more notches (we’re running out of notches!) by choosing a Havana Cabana suite, where you’ll have a larger outdoor area with your very own lounge-ready hammock chair for those seaview siestas, plus a luxe rain shower.

If you’re craving something more elevated, come aboard Carnival Mardi Gras and book an Excel Aft or Presidential Suite. Mardi Gras is one of our Excel-class ships (the others being Carnival Celebration and Carnival Jubilee), which are specially designed to take your vacation to new heights with more space, attractions, and amenities. Picture this: a wraparound balcony boasting a private hot tub and a dining table perfect for intimate al fresco treats. Plenty of space to relax, with views of sparkling seas that will sweep you off your feet. Evenings spent sipping champagne on the outdoor daybed, or enjoying oceanfront room service. The suite of your wildest dreams? We think so.

Alluring Amenities

A beautiful stateroom is nice, but it’s what’s on the inside that counts, right? Luckily, Carnival’s staterooms offer a host of romantic amenities and features that are sure to take your breath away. Pillow-top mattresses to cradle you in comfort, a cozy couch primed for blockbuster movie nights right in your cabin, and plenty of room to be alone, together. It’s like writing your own love story, one amenity at a time.

One of our favorite cabin types are the Cloud 9 Staterooms & Suites, available on many of our ships. Step into a realm where you and your partner are enveloped in spa-like serenity. Indulge in ELEMIS bath products that turn every shower into a fragrant escape. Wrap yourselves in the soft embrace of spa bathrobes and slippers, transforming your cabin into a cocoon of comfort. Enjoy priority spa reservations and treat yourselves to a couple’s massage or facial that takes comfort to the next level. Searching for a little extra boost of zen? Think about cruising in a Cloud 9 Suite for a personal balcony and ample room to stretch out.

Choosing the Right Deck

Any loyal Carnival cruiser will tell you that your cruising experience varies from aft to midship to forward decks, and from lower to upper decks. Here’s our couples-certified guide to choosing the right deck for you!

Lower Decks – Are you an adventure-loving duo already planning to debark early at every exotic port of call? Love that for you! A room on the lower decks will be the perfect location.

Aft – Clinking champagne glasses with your love, watching the ship’s wake, and bidding a fond farewell to the last port of call? Don’t mind if we do. For a view that’s as breathtaking as your romance, we recommend booking an aft stateroom. Plus, enjoy easy access to nearby dining – because love and food are a match made in cruise heaven.

Midship – Are you and your partner the life of the party, always seeking romance in the heart of the action? With extra elevators and a shortcut to the pool, a midship stateroom is your golden ticket. Dive into the sea of excitement without missing a beat.

Forward – Night owls, fitness fanatics and spa lovers— this one’s for you. A forward cabin is your gateway to nightly shows, the fitness center and the spa. Plus, revel in those “captain’s views” and always know where the ship is headed next.

Upper Decks – Dreaming of leisurely hand-in-hand strolls under the moonlit sky? Who isn’t, honestly? Book yourselves an upper deck suite for views that will make your heart skip a beat. With easy access to outdoor decks, your romantic cruise is bound to reach new heights.

Now that you’re an expert on romantic Carnival staterooms, nothing stands in the way of you and a dreamy getaway! Whether you’re yearning for private balcony sunrises, decadent breakfasts in bed, adventurous days for two, cozy moments on a pillowtop bed, or sunset kisses on outdoor decks, we’ve got the spot for you.
