On the Carnival Dream 9-day inaugural voyage, I stayed in balcony cabin #9228, and these photos are from that cabin. The bathroom for the cabin was a good size, with nice lighting, a magnifying shaving/makeup mirror, adequate shelves, and excellent water pressure in the shower. The shower has a curtain rather than a glass door, but since the shower stall is large, the plastic curtain doesn't wrap around you.
The balcony cabin had three closets--two with hangars and the third with shelves. There's a flat screen television that can best be seen from the bed. The bed is high enough from the floor to allow easy storage of suitcases. The cabin has a sofa bed and small table, lighted desk/vanity area, and a small refrigerator and safe.
The balcony is large enough for two chairs and a small table. The balcony does not have a sliding glass door, it has one that opens outward. One of the two problems I saw with this cabin was that both the balcony and cabin doors slam very loudly when you release them. Coupled with the second problem I saw in this cabin--the ability to hear voices and noise through the connecting door to the next cabin--this banging of doors gets very distracting. Those who are light sleepers might want to select a cabin without a connecting door. Other than those two issues, I thought the balcony cabins were quite nice and a good value.
