Ok - so I booked a cruise just a few days ago. I booked a CAT12 and I want to upgrade to a CAT12 extended balcony. Is there any way I can do this? I am willing to pay.
I will be sailing in 42 days

Best way is to call Carnival and see what is available and the price.

We recently came back from Miracle and had an 8A extended balcony that we got as an upgrade just before sailing for $ 100.

Balcony had room for lounge chair but only two regular chairs and when we ask ed our room steward for lounge she gave us nonsensical story that a lounge chair on that balcony is a safety hazard.

We did not take it any further but thought the extended balcony was not worth the extra cost.

The cat 12s are now gone. If its the same category they should let you move for no extra $$..

Grand suite to grand suite?

let us know how it went.

OP is in a cat 12 he says .. wouldnt that be a grand suite?

His balcony is already bigger than what you had, so I doubt its going to be a problem. ..? I dont know though.
