Straightforward enough question but I've been hard pressed to find the answer: Do all 8D-type balcony cabins have sofas, even if the cabin doesn't have the * on the deck plan? Or do only three-person cabins have them?

I'm going on a cruise with a bunch of family members and a couple of people who've cruised before have been in cabins that lacked sofas--just had a single chair--and said it was hard to congregate to hang out in the cabins. Therefore, I've been appointed to find out.

Thank you, kind CCers.

We have sailed many different ships with Carnival and always sail in a balcony cabin, there are 3 of us and there has always been a sofa (turns into bed for 3rd person). This has been for 8b, c, & d category cabins, also sofa's in suites of course. On the Sunshine, the OV cabins also have a sofa and are also bigger than most other regular cabins (220 sq ft vs, 185 for most others).

If a couple of you get balcony's that can be opened to each other, you could have the dividers opened and have some extra space on a larger balcony as well for hanging out between 2 of the cabins.

The asterisk on the deck plans indicates a cabin designated to hold three people, with the third bed being a sofa made into a single bed.

All 8 D cabins have a sofa but in those designated as two-person cabins, the sofa will not be turned into a bed and the cabin will not accommodate three people even though it is the same size.

I am sure someone will correct me soon if this information is incorrect.
