I've stayed on the riviera deck on triumph. i liked it. we were the last room on the back of the ship, and didn't experience any motion. however, at times we could hear the ship moving (kind of like a constant motor noise). but we liked it...it made it easier for us to sleep. it was sort of just a constant humm. nothing to keep you awake. hope you enjoy your cruise!
I've cruised three times on Carnival, and twice I've stayed on the Riviera Deck. In my opinion, I truly believe that the Riviera Deck is the best deck to be on. It's very, very quiet, not to mention that you hardly feel any movement (especially if you're in midship).
On my last cruise on the Imagination, I booked a gty ocean view cabin, and ended up on the Upper Deck aft. Never again. The only time I'll book a cabin not on the Riviera Deck is when I book a cabin with a balcony; other than that I will always book on the Riviera Deck. All the cabins look alike no matter what deck you're on, unless you book a suite.
We stayed in two adjoining rooms on the Riveria deck on the Triumph last year and we loved it. Totally quiet and great for sleeping. Also, apparently the ship hit some turbulence and some people were complaining. We never felt it on our deck. We are doing the Riviera deck on the Valor this year. Works for us. All these people that book higher decks don't know what they are missing.
I love the Rivera deck. Got an outside cabin on the Legend. It's close to the showrooms, casino, etc, it was quiet, the elevators are fast and your up to lido in no time. I slept well and there wasn't much motion and we were near the front of the ship. Nice and quiet also had self serve laundry on our deck. I will book it again, got a great price too.
