Cabin Temperatures
 
With the heat here at home being excessive, it got me to thinking about (what appears to be) an increase in the number of complaints about the cabin tempertures.

Tom is currently on the Liberty and his cabin temp was 76 degrees...which is warmer than he likes. Of course, when Carnival comes and checks it...they say "it is within their acceptable limits".

My only problem with that statement is that "they" are not paying for the cruise...."we" are.

Is it just a summer time issue....OR is there something that Carnival is now doing to save money that they are not telling us about????

We have run into this issue a couple of times on the Glory (on Main...Mid OV either side). It was 78 degrees which is to hot for me. It was not the summer time. So we had to keep the drapes pulled to prevent the cabin from heating up.

The Elation (interior on Empress) was 76 degrees the end of May. I do not remember the days being excessively hot.

Our Balcony on the Spirit was fine in April.

Our Cove Balcony on the Magic was fine in Nov....

The most issues we have had were OVs on the Conquest class ships on Main.

I have just been reading more and more complaints about hot cabins...and it got me to wondering....

We were on the Liberty (balcony #7351) back in late January and early February. We had to keep turning the air down because it just felt too cold. Never looked to see the actual temp, but it was definitely cooler than the dining room in which I normally freeze. Outside it was pretty much in the 80's all day.

I know that doesn't answer the question if it is a summer time thing - but hopefully adds to the research a bit.

I think Tom likes aft wraps which might have more exposure to the sun + every time you open the balcony door you are air conditioning the outside + letting humidity inside.

We avoid cruising during the summer for a number of reasons, but this could be another one.

I will have to go back and see what cabin Tom is in...I know he is also on Deck 7 and I do not think to far from your cabin.

I too remember people complaining about cabins being to cold on the Glory (they were on Lido) when we were on it...so perhaps it is the location of the cabin???

Someone else said they bring a small fan which I thought a good idea.

I've rarely had an issue. Last trip the steward came in for ice and mentioned it seemed warm and he said he would ask maintenance to take a look without me asking.

I was on the Inspiration last September and it was way too hot in our cabin.

I asked our cabin steward about it and he told me there was nothing wrong with our air, but he could have someone check it if we wanted. We declined, since he told us that was the normal temperature, but this was the 2nd time on the Inspiration with the first being 6 months earlier and we were in the exact same cabin both times.

Bottom line the first time the cabin temperature was much more comfortable.

I had the same problem on our last cruise and we had an inside with no windows.

As you stated CCL said it's within limits.

I would wake up in the middle of the night covered in sweat.

Finally after they came twice they brought us a fan.

I guess if they keep the ship warmer it doesn't cost them as much.

This is exactly what I am wondering.

And if this is the case, does it affect some areas of the ship more than others???

We also bring a battery operated fan that I bought at Walmart.....since ladies like myself of a certain age are already prone to hotflashes.....I sure do not need a warm cabin on top of that.

I've been saying this in my past reviews. They are shutting down or reducing the A/C late at night. No question.

My suggestions:

Keep bathroom door open or ajar, the return vent is located in there.

We have a small plastic fan that we have used for several years. It helps circulate the air.

Inexpensive hi/low digital thermometers can help you monitor

And I think there is always a gap under the bathroom door, but it would be better it it were at the top.

I did not think about the Bathroom door idea....thanks !!!!

I have also noticed that when they go to "measure" the temp....they always reach way DOWN by the floor....

My travel clock has a register built in....so I can always see the temp.

My biggest problem was on Conquest in our port lido balcony cabin. What air there was was cool when he put the temperature guage there. Problem was there was no actual airflow. I found myself doing the balcony door/cabin door trick a lot to cool it down.
