Default Carnival Ships & Secret State Rooms

After looking at the deck plans on carnival cruise ships. Some rooms look better than others because of their size and/or shape.
Can anyone help me out with finding the “secret” rooms on carnival cruise ships?

Default Secret Cabins

I'll give you an example:

On the Conquest (and many other CCL ships) cabin 2465 was considered a 'secret' cabin. It was different than a normal cabin as it was L shaped because of its location at a stairwell. The major reason that it was considered 'secret' was that it USED to be classified as a 1A, the lowest category, yet it was an ocean view with TWO windows. Quite a deal. Since CCL reclassified the cabins about a year ago it is now a 6B no longer a bargain. I have stayed in this particular cabin three times, but will not again. It still has two windows as most only have one, but the vibration problems in that cabin are too annoying for me. It used to be a Great solo cabin, but now not so much as a 6B.

Good luck in finding more, I'm only giving up the one.

On the Fantasy....if you walk all the way to the back of Empress and up a short flight of stairs....you will find cabins A1, A2, A3 and A4.

They are not listed on any deck map. They are where Camp Carnival used to be.

I am assuming they use them for emergency cabins or fly on entertainers....

On Splendor and Conquest class ships (I think) the aft-most cabins on both the port and starboard sides of the Empress and Upper decks are classified as regular balconies (8C on Empress and 8A on Upper) but have longer balconies. Like the cabin Snoozeman describes above they wrap around a crew stairwell. We stayed in 7443 on Splendor, it was nice to have the long balcony, had an actual lounge chair in addition to two regular chairs, but gave up some cabin room and had a lot of vibration when they used the positioning thrusters, basically docking or departing.
