Default Not the "Suite" life I was expecting - or paid for

We booked cabin #5266 on the Spirit for Nov 14 of this year. We just found out even though it has a great wrap around balcony, it is significantly smaller that the rest of the Cat 11 suites and there is only 1 large closet and no seperate rooms. I called Carnival and they said they never told me how big it was so they will not adjust any price nor a shipboard credit. Nice treatment after 13 loyal years!

Anyway - has anyone been in this cabin that can offer any opinions? I was told it is the same layout on all Spirit class ships so any photos, personal experience would be a great help!

The size can't be that much smaller since it is a suite. As for a seperate room, I haven't seen any separate rooms on any of the suite picutres I have seen. The cabin is up to 50% larger than a standard balcony cabin.

Don't let it bum you out, have a fun holiday!

Some wraps on Spirit class do have separate rooms. 4237 is one of them.
Maybe you could check and see if it is still available and switch cabins.
I love the wraps whether they have separate rooms or not.
But i loved 4237...IMO best cabin on any CCL ship

Although I liked 4237, DW did not. She found it too choppy.

She would have preferred one bigger room.

But we liked deck 4 the best just for what we think is the best balcony.
