I'm new to this site, but I will be sailing on the Carnival Conquest out of New Orleans on March 11, 2012. I am planning to book an Aft Extended Balcony cabin, which I've never had before. My question is whether an extended balcony on deck 6 (category 8M - 6456)) or Deck 8 (category 8N - 8452) would be better. I'd prefer to be on Deck 8 but I wasn't sure if the view would be better from Deck 6 since you are not looking over the Deck 6 & 7 aft balconies like you would on Deck 8. Also, are the rooms on these two decks the same size as other regular balcony rooms on the ship. We have a party of 3, so I wanted to make sure there would be a couch in these rooms. Finally, does anyone have pictures of these balconies or the view from them? Thanks for all the help.
