I'm new to this site, but I will be sailing on the Carnival Conquest out of New Orleans on March 11, 2012. I am planning to book an Aft Extended Balcony cabin, which I've never had before. My question is whether an extended balcony on deck 6 (category 8M - 6456)) or Deck 8 (category 8N - 8452) would be better. I'd prefer to be on Deck 8 but I wasn't sure if the view would be better from Deck 6 since you are not looking over the Deck 6 & 7 aft balconies like you would on Deck 8. Also, are the rooms on these two decks the same size as other regular balcony rooms on the ship. We have a party of 3, so I wanted to make sure there would be a couch in these rooms. Finally, does anyone have pictures of these balconies or the view from them? Thanks for all the help.
I agree with Phil&Liz. IMHO the 8N's are the best especially on the Conquest. I've sailed the Conquest 10 times half in an 8N.
You will have the occasional scooting noise from chairs above, but you will be above everyone else in balconies and only one deck below the FOOD! Great location.
