Default Pictures of Cat 9-A on Conquest

We are booked in a 9-A on the Conquest, a nice aft cabin. Have been searching for pictures but have had no luck. The 9-a cabin pix aren't even shown on the Carnival website. Can anyone help me out?

Carnival doesn't usually show any pictures of this category due to that 9A's all run different sizes and shapes based on the deck, location and ship it is located on.

Default Just curious...

why do you need pictures of the cabin? I mean, I thought that was gonna be a big deal~ the size of the room and all... but when you consider that you will be sleeping and changing in there what does it reall-llly mater. lol, I dont mean to offend you but just really wondering.

When I first walked into my cabin and realized the "uppers" came out of the ceiling. HAHAHA, I wondered how my aunt was gonna get up there so my SO and I could share a bed. But we all 3 were really comfy in there.

I am not sure why the OP asked about what the room looks like, but the OP may be like many of us and enjoy thinking about all aspects of an upcoming cruise.

We were in a cat 12 on the Elation and absolutely LOVED sitting on the balcony, watching the sea roll by. I get a lot of satisfaction just thinking about sitting on my balcony come July 2.

I realize that you sincerely may have been wondering why someone would be interested in the looks of a room. Occassionally some posters come off sounding like they are judging how someone chooces to spend their time.

I can't sit at home and watch the ocean and the stars and feel a wonderful breeze. I don't judge if someone wants to spend all their time sitting by a pool, betting at the casino, or singing Karaoke at a bar. (Which I may do on occasion)

Different strokes for different folks! Happy Cruising

Default Me too!

For me, a great part of the anticipation is reading everything about a trip, including pictures. As many 9A pictures I have seen, it was the first I've seen these. Since I'm booking a 9A on the Glory for March 2008, this was great for me. Thanks for asking the question and thanks for posting those great pictures!

Well, our accommodations mean quite a lot to us, whether it's a cabin on a ship, a hotel room or a vacation rental home. Yes, we only book balcony cabins, because we do more than just sleep and change in our cabin. We have room service breakfast on the balcony, drinks before and after dinner, naps after ports, etc. etc. Our cabin size and amenities are just another aspect of the entire cruise experience. I also want to see photos before I book a cabin.

I like looking at photos for the reason that I like to know what it is I am getting. Sometimes the photos that are on the websites are not true photos of what I am getting. But "real" people have the real thing.
Booking a cat 9A with the wrap around balcony I am pretty sure these people will be spending a big amount of time on their balcony.

I have not booked a 9a since they costs so much more then a reg cat 8 and I like to cruise often. Upcoming cruise the 9A is almost 900 more for the both of us. (funny thing is we are sailing in Sept and all 6 of them are still available.-

I've noticed the same thing.

Serene, this particular 9A in the photos actually looks smaller than the 8A we had on the Miracle. Is the sq. footage the same, but it just looks smaller because of the layout? Seems maybe it is smaller, since there's no sofa? Just wondering, thanks.

After looking at the pictures of the Liberty wrap, i think Destiny has a bit larger room and has a couch, Valor is about the same size but the closet and dresser is switched & the table is not by the balcony door. I can tell you that some of the wraps quite alot are larger on some ships that i have been on.
