Default Booked a Suite

This is going to be a very long year.
I have been booked on a Disney Cruise for my anniversary next year for almost a year now and I have over a year to wait.

I have been shopping for another cruise to keep me from going stir crazy..
This morning I got a confirmation for the Vista Suite 12-1-13 on the Miracle.

Woohoo, oh wait thats still over a year away... sigh..

Oh well, at least I have another 6 days to look forward to.

You will LOVE the VS! Which deck are you on? All but deck 5 are wonderful 2 room suites. Have a separate living area and bedroom. We had one of these on Miracle last year to Bermuda. We booked deck 7 originally but moved to deck 4 when a cabin opened there we moved so we'd have a partially covered balcony. We really lucked out on the price when we booked that. Not sure we'll ever get that same deal again, but sure wish we would. That was by far my favorite cabin ever!

We're sailing in our second VS in September. We are now spoiled for any other balcony, not to mention a real bathtub instead of that pervert shower curtain.

You are going to love the Vista Suite!

I am on deck 7. I like a little elivation.
My daughter (nearly 17 for this trip) is going but is going to oversee the childrens inside cabin.
I arranged for the other adults on the trip to have a balcony cabin across from the kids so we can keep tabs on them but will actually get some darn privicy.

I have had to have this cabin since I found it online.

I don't know which cruise I'm more excited about.

That cabin is perfect for a group! Lots of space to entertain! You'll have a great time.

Wow, what deck is that picture from?

This balcony is my idea of a vaction. I get bored, go out and play, then come chill out when I've had enough, repeat.

Since it's covered, I'm guessing it's 4, but they all have that size balcony. Ours had two loungers, two regular balcony chairs, and also two metal chairs. I spent sea days in the loungers on our deck w/ my iPod speakers instead of heading up to Lido and fighting the chair hogs. It was wonderful!

When we booked ours, I found some great videos on You Tube. Search on Carnival and your cabin number and you'll come up with a few. You can look at Miracle, Spirit, or Legend since they're all Spirit Class ships.

I sure did look up this room on youtube. I wonder if it still has the same TV or if they swapped to flatcreen yet?

My packing list just got longer. I will need a small power strip etc.

Ours on deck 4 had the flat screen in September.

Here is the mini power strip I carry with me - Belkin BZ103050-TVL Mini Notebook Surge Protector with Built-In USB Charger -Walmart.com
