  1. I stand corrected! I just looked at my photos from my 2018 Carnival trip. The bed was indeed next to the balcony! All the other ships I’ve been on (Paul Gaugauin, Princess, HAL) had the sofa next to the balcony. Learned something new! That long YouTube video that an earlier reply sent me to explains the alternating layout where some balcony staterooms have the bed next to the balcony, and the adjacent ones have the sofa next to the balcony. Evidently, this is common on ships. I guess I’ve just been lucky so far to get the layout that I prefer.
  2. I am booked on the Mardi Gras for Feb. 2021 in a balcony stateroom, and I just noticed something strange in the photos. Usually a balcony stateroom (on any cruise line) has a sofa next to the balcony. So if the weather isn't nice enough for being outside you can still sit by the sliding glass door and watch the ocean. But on the Carnival website the pictures of the balcony staterooms show the sofa on the opposite side of the beds. https://www.carnival.com/cruise-ships/mardi-gras.aspx#staterooms/7 But then the floorplan diagram shows the sofa next to the sliding glass doors.
