Anyone ever book an extended balcony on Carnival Miracle? This would be the 8C category cabins like 5010 to 5130 deck 5 upper deck. Is the balcony really much bigger? Let me know what you expect. ThanksIt is about 2 feet bigger. 2 feet makes a big difference on those balconies in my opinion.

Anyone ever book an extended balcony on Carnival Miracle?...No. I don't think anyone has ever booked those cabins. I think they always sail with those empty.
Chitown, thanks so much for posting the balcony pix! We are sailing on the Spirit in cabin 5110, (so pretty much the same layout and cabin config, being that they're both Spirit Class ships), so it was great to see the balcony pix and hear that you loved your selection.we flip-flopped for a year about switching cabins beacuse of concerns about:
Really looking forward to experiencing the balcony on our cruise. We had an OV for our first cruise and enjoyed it alot. Spent alot of time sitting in the window, (perfect size for me to curl up in and read, lol), and I'm certain that I will really enjoy having an ext. balcony!
Can't stomach an inside room, I"m too claustrophobic, need to see the sun, so it's well worth the extra $$$ for me. Thanks!
1)wind-it was bad the first few days(not trying to scare you) but it was bad everywhere on the ship....we sailed towards and around tropical storm Noel......after that it wasn't any different than our other balcony midship cruisesTHANK YOU! These were my 3 concerns also, and you eased my concerns greatly. We don't have kids, so I was really wondering how insane it would get with the Camp so nearby. I was also wondering about the showroom below, so that was very good to hear.
2)noise from the showroom below-I asked my family if they noticed....my dad said he heard something faint one night but hardly noticable
3)camp traffic-I have kids so I loved the proximity to camp but was worried about traffic volume.....I think I heard a family in the cooridor once.
We had an extended balcony on the Miarcle in January. I think it was well worth it. That is the one thing I really liked about this ship. If I ever go on this class ship again I will get another extended balcony. That two feet makes a big difference.I agree! They are well worth it for us. We usually book 2 or 3 cabins together and the extra leg room is important when you have alot of foot traffic on the balcony. Some people don't use their balcony but we use it all the time, especially in the mornings and after spending all day in port.
