Default Carnival cruisers (back of the ship's balcony cabins)

This for anyone who has cruised with Carnival.

Have you ever been or knew anyone who had a balcony cabin in the very back of the ship? It's the ones with the extended balconies?

Is it true that if you are in those cabins and there is a windy night or day, that the Room Steward/Carnival will not allow you to open the door to your balcony?

Thank you.
Darlene (Redwitch from Pittsburgh)

Darlene.....we had an aft extended balcony on the Carnival Liberty last year when she was brand new......FABULOUS!!! I highly recommend these rear-facing cabins.

same here
loved it
propped the balc door open all night - was fantastic
but have NEVER had any foul weather on a cruise so I can't comment - but I doubt that
don't see any difference in those balconies and any others.

Are you talking about the aft wrap balconies? We had one of those on the Miracle this last March and it was INCREDIBLE. No one told us that we couldn't open the balcony at any time during the week.

It was funny trying to open our cabin door if the balcony door was open though. Talk about a wind tunnel. Just made us laugh though and yank harder on the door!

Totally hooked us on full aft cabins though. Hubby says he will never sail without one and since our next two trips that are booked are full afts I guess he wasn't kidding!

You'll love it!!
