Default Ocean View and Port Hole Question on Carnival

Is a Port Hole cosidered an Ocean View? If I book an Oceanview, Is it possible that Carnival might give me a Port Hole? I want an Ocean view window. Does the Oceanview and Port Hole cost the same?

What ship are you cruising? If it's a newer ship the 6A,6B,6C, and 6D will be a window. Sometimes on the newer ships a 1A will say it has a porthole. But the one I saw was also a full window. That was on the Carnival Freedom.

What category did you book, I think if you didn't book a 1a you should be fine.

Okay the Fascination is one of the older Fantasy class ships. So book a 6A or above and you will be fine. According to Carnival's website the Fascination went through Dry Dock in 2008. Dry Dock is when the take the ship out of service to clean her up. New carpets, paint, toilet seats, etc. From Carnival's website. This ship should be in nice shape when you cruise her.

I wish the Elation had the refurbished cabins. I was hoping they refurbished them in the 2006 drydock. Because according to the virtual tours they are upgraded. But I found out from someone else that when they went in Nov. they were not.

Unfortunately, the Elation is going into drydock like a week after I sail.

I wish Carnival would wait and put the new virtual tours after they refurbish the cabins.

No ocean view and port holes are not the same categories. If you booked an ocean view you will be fine.
