Default Upgrade turned down

Well, I had contacted our TA at Carnival about an upgrade from our Veranda extended balcony room and they came across. Up to the Panorama but the deck would have been smaller. Didn't appear to make much difference on the size of the room so I decided to keep the room we have........ the Momster wants to try to sit outside and Im hoping the extended balcony gives her a little more security... am I crazy?

Yes, you are crazy. The extended balcony room is one I would not want. Since it extends out beyond the balconies above, you may find spilled drinks, ice, trash, cigarette butts, flip flops, etc. falling onto your balcony.

We were on the deck just above the extended balcony rooms and observed this happening below. Also, make sure you are dressed when going out on your balcony because the people up above can see onto yours.

Regards,
Thomas

i am not personally familiar with that layout but if what Thomas has stated is correct, i think you should go for the upgrade. They don't call it an upgrade for nothing.

Thomas buddy I hope your right!!!! I just accepted the upgrade and we are on the Panoramic deck room 8119, 7th room back from the front. Momster's trippin cause she is giving up her extended balcony but considering the cig. butts flying onto the balcony I wouldn't trust it with her oxygen. The seller for me was making sure I was dressed before going out...... I would hate to scare someone above me Seriously Thomas, thanks for the advice..... I do trust the professional cruisers and your experience on here.

I definately would have kept the extended balcony! I have had both and the extended balcony was wonderful as you actually had room to move around instead of being all cramped up and unable to walk around without stepping over the two small chairs they have. I would have turned down that supposed upgrade in a heartbeat. As for anyone tossing cig butts down onto your balcony if it happens call security and also pick up the butts and stuff them in their door.
