Help Me Find This Cabin

Recommended Posts

one less closet would make the cabiin a tad bigger woulnt you thin?

have you ever see the square footage of those L shape cabins? more sq footage then a regular balcony cabon but much of that spacae is not usable.

 

i do see on the page it lists a less closet and a regular sofa.

 

so what happened to that space of those two furniture pieces.

 

9201 is not a mirror image of 9200

Using the factor of 1 less closet and a regular sofa vs a double sofa bed would make 9201 have more walkable space.

The cabins appear to be mirror images on the deck plans though.

Thanks for the info. When you book is it under an ocean view, I have heard that it's considered an inside?

 

It is under Oceanview, the first step of the booking engine on Carnival's website. A couple steps later, you will select Scenic Oceanview. You're thinking of what the rooms in this spot used to be. They have been changed on 3 ships. There is no more public observation deck on deck 9 on those ships, but the other decks that had them in the past still have them (Decks 6, 7, & 10).

 

Do these types of rooms exist on any other class ships?

 

Only 1 class of ship for now, but there are now 3 ships within that class that has these rooms: Valor, Glory, & Conquest. As mentioned earlier, Sunshine will have these as well.

Only available on Glory and Valor \

these are Scenic Oceanviews

 

9200 is for 4 people and 9201 is for 2 people.

you will find it quite hard to book 9200 for 2 people and take the chance of being moved.

 

9200 is the only one like it 9201 is smaller but not by much and does not have the sofa.

 

the other cabins in the middle are scenic oceanviews too

 

sometimes these costs the same rate as the balcony.

 

they took the public deck out and expanded the cabin. it features those nice windows-- BUT at night you can not have your shades opened because it interferes with the bridge

 

 

Its also available on the Conquest.

 

9201 Does have the sofa just not the double sofa sleeper. It is also the same square footage. 9200 sleeps up to 4 and 9201 only sleeps 2.

I checked some more dates, and rooms 9200 & 9201 (the big ones) are now only showing up under Fun Select, not Early Saver or any other discounted rate. There may be some dates that allow you to book those 2 rooms under Early Saver, so check for it first. But if Early Saver shows that those 2 rooms are not available, go back and change to Fun Select to see if you can get it that way.

 

Also, it would seem that you must book it for the exact number of people it holds. 2 of the rooms hold 2 people: 9196 & 9201(the bigger one). 4 of the rooms hold 4 people: 9197, 9198, 9199, & 9200(the bigger one). If you have just 3, you'll have to put in someone's name that isn't going, pay for that unused 4th spot, and book it for 4. Please note, the room numbers and number of people the rooms hold applies only to Glory, Valor, & Conquest (not Sunshine). Also, as I mentioned before, the cost for one of these rooms under Fun Select may be more than a balcony under Early Saver.

 

One example: Conquest, 4/20/2014, for 2 people:

Scenic OV under Early Saver (does not include room 9201) = $1815 total

Scenic OV under Fun Select (includes room 9201) = $2035

Balcony under Early Saver = $1915

So the bigger OV room (9201) is $120 more than a balcony. But the smaller scenic OV room (9197) is $100 less than a balcony.

 

In the previous example, for 4 people, the difference is less, but the bigger room (9200) is still $20 more than a balcony under Early Saver. But 9200 under Fun Select is $220 more than the smaller scenic OV rooms under Early Saver.

 

I'm booked on the Valor in a Lido Balcony for my January 2014 cruise. I just looked for these rooms and they are not showing up as available but they are considered "Scenic Oceanviews" at a cost of $20 per person per day. For the extra costs, I'd rather keep my balcony.

 

It may not be an option for you to downgrade to one of these scenic OV rooms even if you wanted to, if you are under Early Saver. But I still wanted to point out that the $20 extra per person per day is not on top the price you are currently booked at with the balcony. That's the extra cost on top of the lowest Oceanview room. Still, as you can see in my example, the bigger scenic OV rooms may still come out to be more expensive than your balcony, since you probably have to book it under the higher Fun Select rate. I checked your sailing. All 6 rooms are available! The bigger ones on the sides are only available under Fun Select. The smaller 4 (that are 230 sq.ft.) are available under Early Saver. Those smaller ones are almost the exact amount of space that you have with your balcony (counting both inside & outside). Those would be cheaper than your balcony, but as I said, if you are under Early Saver, you are not allowed to downgrade from a balcony to one of these.

I understand that the photo above is of a cabin on a Conquest class ship. Can you help me to locate this cabin as I would like to book it on a future cruise. If it is not a Conquest class then what? Thank you.

 

Coolest pic yet. Thanks for posting this ... I didn't even know this type of cabin existed. Thanks very much.

From what I read on the Valor's site, the middle front Scenic Ocean View rooms are the same size as a balcony. Question: On the balcony rooms, do they add in the balcony as part of the square footage?

 

Our cruise is this spring and we booked it last spring. Those corner rooms were already sold out THEN.:eek: Hard to get unless booking out far. And even then (last spring when booking), we got the two last scenic ocean view rooms there were.

I am booked Past Guest for now since the sailing is so far out because I have a 2nd room booked for my kids and they may not be coming. Even though they are beautiful rooms, even if it costs me more, I would prefer the balcony. I guess I've become a balcony snob ;). I so enjoy waking up in the morning and having my coffee on my balcony, nice & quiet and listening to the ocean, hopefully feeling the sunshine :o. At night before bed, its again very relaxing to sit out there and look out in the darkness. I wouldn't trade my balcony for anything

i love a balcony too but i really wanted to try this cabin.

Although I will not be able to hear the sounds outside I can sit on that window sill (it is really wide) and be able to see the view.

 

at night i will see the darkness since i can not have the shades up when the lights are on. I am looking forward to sitting there with my lights off and not worry because i cant see anything since the neighbors left their lights on, :p

If you look at the far small corner window on the other side of the sofa you can see one of the shades drawn.

On balcony rooms, they are counting the outdoors as part of the overall square footage. It's 185 inside, & 35 outside, to total 220. These scenic oceanview rooms are 230, so it's almost the exact same. The corner ones are clearly much large, at 320. Thpse corner ones aren't selling as quickly as before, since they are restricting them to the higher Fun Select rate. Plenty of sailings further out still have them available. But any of these would be very nice. I hope you enjoy yours.

 

We had one booked on Conquest when they used to be on the spa deck, but before we sailed, they were all converted to balconies. The balcony was nice, but it would've been nice to sail in one of these unique rooms. But that view would've been off to the side. These new ones, overlooking the front of the ship, is an even better view!
