Just got back from my first cruise (Carnival Paradise). I realize that I have absolutely nothing to compare this to, but I found the cabin to be MUCH larger than I expected. We had the second cheapest cabin (2 beds, no window) and I was travelling with a male friend (I'm female). We had absolutely no problem sharing the space (when we separated the two beds to opposite sides of the room, it gave us so much space). Don't know if all cabins are like that, but I was pleasantly surprised. Just thought I 'd pass that on.
