Default Picking a Cabin - Carnival Miracle

My husband and I are crazily trying to book a cruise at the last minute to celebrate his new job. There is only one cruise that fits our schedule before he starts, and there is only one suite (a treat) left on it. I looked and it's on the "Upper Deck" at the very aft of the boat. I've always read it's better to book the center of the boat - not sure if suites are ever available there. Would we do better to just go with a balcony room if it's in the middle? Or if we want to try a suite wait until we can find a different cruise? Or are suites always far forward or far aft?

Thanks so much - we've only cruised one other time and I don't know much of the ins and outs!

I wouldn't hesitate to book that suite, the aft is FABULOUS!!!!!!! I always try and find a cabin on the aft if its fits my budget. You will be closer to the pool / hottubs, lunch buffet, plus you will be able to see sun sets from your balcony every night.

I've never been on the Miracle, but have sailed Carny alot.

Happy cruising!

I agree. That suite on "Upper Deck" should be EXCELLENT! Upper deck will assure that your cabin has passenger cabins both above, and below it, so noise should NOT be a problem. I'd book it in a heart beat, if the price is right.
Have a wonderful cruise aboard "Miracle".
We'll be sailing "Miracle" November 11th ourselves. Can't wait!

I'd go ahead and keep that suite, sounds wonderful and I always like the upper decks anyway, close to buffet and the pool deck, etc.

We're also sailing the Miracle on Nov. 11, and we've booked an aft suite.
We have only once before had one, on Princess, and it was the best cabin ever! Beautiful view of the wake, quiet, and best of all, spacious!
Go for it, and congrats on the new job!

I've been in one of these Aft suites on Carnival they are amazing for the view, and much larger then a normal balcony, you will love it!

Write back after your cruise and let us know if you liked the aft.
