How to pick the right stateroom cabin on Carnival Cruise Line

Watch our video about how to pick the right stateroom cabin on Carnival Cruise Line. I go through the process of picking an itinerary, ship, and drilling down the results to locate potential issues caused by not reading the ship’s deck plan. Watch the video before buying your cruise, it will help you navigate the website.
