Default Magic 1A's for elderly passenger

My father will be sailing with us on Carnival Magic.

Are the 1A's any better on Magic that older ships?

Has anyone here gotten the 1A's (or 4A I guess are similar) on Magic?

The handicap cabin he had last time he said didn't have a table or couch/chair to put things on but he liked the openess of the bath/shower.

What about proximity to the stairs or elevators? Midship would be best. Are there any cabins you have had in that area?

Magic doesn't launch until May 2011 and is not an exact duplicate of Dream.

Here are the "ADA" deck plans for Dream, I don't know of any having been released for Magic.

I think the Modified 1A cabins on Dream tended to be on one of the higher decks.

Some 1As may have a twin bed and a convertible single sofa, a number will certainly have a twin bed and a bunk that is normally in the ceiling and no sofa.

Here is an example of a modified 1A on Dream (no sofa)

Mr. P & L Z C is correct ... no one has sailed on Magic yet, why don't you just book him a handicapped room and be done with it.

The pictures Z C posted are exactly what my room looked like on Carnival Splendor. It was a "handicapped" 1A no sofa, only a small cocktail table and a desk chair. The room was huge, and I loved the bathroom, it made me wish I could always get a room like that one. If it wasn't for the risk of being bumped for a handicapped person, I'd book this catagory more often.

I'm glad Max is going with us on Bloggers 4

Duh ! Boy am I off my game ! Must the usuper (Mrs L&P) messing me up.
I was just reading about her arrival when I thought about making the post early this am.

Thanks ZC for the specs and pics. Maybe I can use the specs as a guide for what cabin/ location I would like to match to on Magic.

Looks like cabins 9352 or 9353 would be good. We are booked on deck 9 aft at the momemnt on Magic and he could be midship same deck.

Maybe I will resurrect this thread when Magic sails Europe.

Thanks y'all.

The 1As that would have a sofa are usually the ones all the way at the front of the ship on lower decks. Some of those have porthole or two, but are not modified.

There are also some "inside" cabins at the front of the ship that have obstructed views. Some of those are modified. Those are 4Js.

When buyng a future cruise certificate on Ecstasy a few weeks ago, I asked about Magic. I was told that I would LOVE the HC cabins as they were very well designed. We'll see. I travel with a scooter and must have space to plug it in and not trip over it at night.
