Connecting Cabins??
I'm seriously thinking about going on a cruise with my husband and three children. This would be my third cruise, and my family's first. I'm very pleased with the size of the standard cabins (185 sq. ft). There's plenty of room to walk around, and getting ready for dinner, or for whatever. The first two times, three of us shared a cabin, which was fine, but now I'm stuck.

I think that having 5 people in a cabin would be too much. I prefer getting two cabins, one for my 13 year old, 11 year old, and 9 year old, and getting another one for hubby and me. I would feel terrified in having our children sleep in a different cabin that didn't have a connecting door. Do any of Carnival's fleet have connecting cabins? I've been researching, and I still haven't come across any that do.

I'm thinking on taking the Bahamas cruise from Jacksonville on Celebration, but I don't think they have connecting rooms. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I know the Conquest does which goes out of New Orleans. Not sure about any others.

Thanks, Mary91.

Does anybody else know of any other Carnival ships that have connecting cabins?

Re: Connecting Cabins??
We have connecting (adjoining) cabins on the Triumph leaving NY going to Canada/New England. The cruise leaves June 27 for 5 nights. Carnival has changed it's policy on kids in cabins, we got in under the wire, so make sure you ask about that. I wanted them so I would'nt be in my jammies knocking on my kids door and their not even there! Good Luck!

Leaving from New York City is very convenient for us being that we live about 2 hours away, but I've already been on the Triumph on that same itinerary, and I really want to try a different ship and port of call.

Re: Connecting Cabins??
Since I have been studying the cruise ship layout I noticed the Destiny has connecting rooms called "Family rooms" there are located logically by the childrens playroom. Spa Deck 10. If you look really close there are tiny little triangles on wall between some cabins here, they indicate connecting. (See the symbol legend)
Maybe you can find these symbols on other ship maps. I figure look near the childrens center for rooms a logical place to put family cabins.

Re: Connecting Cabins??
I just reviewed my 2004-2005 Carnival book and was looking for the connecting room symbol It looks like the ships:
(Triumph, Victory,) (Spirit,Pride,Legend, Miracle) (Conquest,Glory,Valor)(Destiny)
All have that symbol on map -appears to be the category 6E on most maps.

The ships that do not show it are: (Fantasy,Ecstasy,Sensation,Fascination,Imagination ,Inspiration,Elation, Paradise) (Holiday,Jubilee,Celebration).
I am only going according to what I see on the map, hope this helps. I know how trying to pull it all off with a family and planning every detail makes it smoother. I am already creating a Don't forget to pack list and my cruise is 11 months away!

Re: Connecting Cabins??
The Legend leaves from New York and she has connecting inside and balcony cabins albeit VERY few. If you're thinking about that one and those cabins for next summer BOOK IT NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Look at them at the CCL website.
deck plans
click on Upper Deck
cabins 5105 and 5107, for example, are the type I"m referrring to.
They are also available on some other decks.

Re: Connecting Cabins??
Yeah I believe the Fantasy Class ships (unfortunately), and Holiday Class ships do not have connecting rooms. However, the mega ships-- Destiny Class, Spirit Class and Conquest Class ships should all have connecting rooms. The Celebration is considered a Holiday Class ship and does NOT have connecting rooms.

I would like to suggest the Carnival Triumph

Good Luck!

Happy Cruising!
