Here is a Great Video Tour of a Family Harbor Suites onboard the Carnival Vista. Room 2415
If you are thinking of taking the Family on a Cruise, Carnival has created a series of Staterooms just for you. They provide enough room for everyone in one cabin, without breaking the bank like some other Cruise Lines. (Is there a mouse in the house?!) The rooms are a slight bit larger than the standard state-room, but don’t expect it to be huge. There are various room sizes available to accommodate most families and budgets, So check with your travel agent to make sure you book a room that will suite your needs.
Located within a dedicated family zone on Deck 2, the Family Harbor accommodations offer a selection of staterooms and suites with a nautical theme that can accommodate up to five family members. Parents and kids will have even more room to spread out and relax at the exclusive Family Harbor Lounge, between the hours of 6:00am-9:00pm, using your Sail & Sign card to enter.
As you can see in the video, Room 2415 has sleeping for up to 5 people. While not a huge room, definitely comfortable if you don’t intend to spend a lot of time in your room. Plus, Family Harbor guests have exclusive access to the “Family Harbor Lounge”.
Family Suites feature two bathrooms: one full bathroom with a shower, toilet and sink and additional bathroom with a junior tub and sink. A room divider with a privacy curtain separates the twin/king from the double sofa bed and upper berth. Taking a cue from another “Mouse Owned Cruise Line”, some of the Carnival Family Harbor Suites provide a type of “Bunk Bed”, that unfolds from the Ceiling, providing additional sleeping arrangements for larger families.

As always talk with your travel agent about your room options, so they can help you choose the right Stateroom for your family and budget. If room 2415 suites your needs, your agent can check to see if it’s available for your next cruise. If not, no worries, they can help find something comparable.
