Do they all connect to the same type of room? Do all Balcony’s open that are connected? Thanks

Helene- I found this post from last month... did you ever get a firm answer from Carnival and/or your PVP about the connecting rooms and adjoining balconies?

It is my understanding that rooms that connect through a door in the wall don't connect through the balcony due to where the doors to the balcony need to be. Their balconies connect to the balcony on the other side. So rooms can connect through EITHER a door in the wall or the balconies, but not both.

Most, if not all, cove balconies on the Vista do connect if they are not connecting rooms by door. (That may not be true for all ships.) We are in connecting rooms (by door,) on the Vista. Our balconies would open to the cabins on the other side of us.

I hope that all makes sense!☺️

This page has all connecting balconies listed:

Edited to add that some ships have balcony cabins that connect to inside cabins. I'm not sure which ships have this, and there are very few of them.

Spirit Class has these cabins. All the way forward on a few decks.

I love the goccl info! I have not been on Vista yet, but my experience on other ships has been that connecting rooms do not have connecting balconies. We travel with friends and the goccl site is where I go to see which balconies can be opened to each other. My challenge has also been finding balconies that open to each other and are not connected to some other room.

According to the link posted connecting cabins do/can have balconies that open to another.

I check our cabin numbers and it shows ours does!

I appreciate you correcting me! I don't like giving wrong information, but it's true I did not check every page. It's good to know that they are available!☺️ It does appear best to search or question here as the Carnival employees seem to be notorious for giving incorrect information, and someone here generally will know the correct answer. (Especially as some of us try, but turn out to be wrong!)😊

Ok, here is the deal.
Just returned from Vista, deck 9 midship balcony

The balcony divider right outside your door cannot be opened. The way the cabins are laid out, there is a divider between your door and the cabin door next to you. The dividers are hinged, they only open, cannot be removed. If the divider just outside your balcony door was opened, it would block both yours and your neighbors balcony doors.
The divider on the opposite end of the balcony can be opened because that balconies door would be on the far end of their balcony.

We had 3 balcony cabins, and could only open the divider between 2 of them.

I hope this makes sense.

Do you have to wait to request that your balcony divider be opened to the cabin next door or is there a way to request it before you board

We asked the Stewart, he said both cabins needed to contact guest services to relay permission to him before he could open them.

This is true - we travel with another couple & we always have been told by our steward that both parties have to be there to confirm they want the balcony divider open.
