Size differences between Horizon aft balconies??

Recommended Posts

I have an extended aft balcony (7461) on Horizon booked for November. I read somewhere (can't find it again) that the aft balconies closest to the aft wraps on deck 7 are quite a bit smaller in size and may not have a couch. When looking at deck plans, it does appear that the depth of these cabins (7461 and 7452) are smaller. I would love to hear from someone who actually knows/has been in these cabins. Hoping someone can offer some info here. Thanks in advance!

Great question and I wish I knew the answer for you.

 

I know the wrap on deck 7 does not have a couch and its shaped weird. At least according to Youtube. You can look for videos of the cabin you are interested in on You tube and it might help.

Thanks Jenjer! I have been searching online but can't find info/photos for my particular cabin or the same one on the other side of the ship.

So I haven’t found photos or video of Horizon 7461 but was able to look at the same cabin on vista and in fact it is smaller and there is no couch. So I called Carnival today and changed cabins to 8474 which I was able to see a video of and confirm it has a couch. Would rather be on deck 7 but no other availability there. Figured aft cabins on deck 6 might get noise from Havana bar and deck 9 might get noise from above. Hope I made the right choice! I tend to over think these things

Hi,

 

 

We recently stayed in 7452 and I thought it was a very nice size balcony. We loved the location!

Thanks for sharing this infoAdG15! Glad to hear that you liked the location. Did you have a sofa in the cabin?

Yes, it was a standard Havana balcony cabin. I think it is the one next to it, 7450 that has a different layout.

Ahh,right, the wrap balcony has a quirky layout. After several changes, we ended up in 7463 aft balcony on Horizon so it should be a great cabin. AdG, you mentioned liking the location, was it easy to get to the Havana pool area from your cabin? It looks like there might be a back set of stairs so you don't have to go all the way to the stairs by the elevators. Is this the true?

Yes, that is true. There are stairs in the corner near 7450/2, which take you directly to the Havana bar on deck 5, with easy access to the pool deck but also to the rest of deck 5. We really loved the location.

I just looked at the deck plan, these stairs are on either side, so also very clode to 7463.
