Aft-View Extended Balcony staterooms feature a larger balcony for more lounge-around room, two twin beds (convert to a king) and a single sofa bed, sofa and coffee table, desk and seat, and a full bathroom with shower.
This is the first time we chose an aft balcony. We were in cabin 9477. OMG! I loved the aft balcony. Cabin 9477’s balcony is also about 4 feet wider than the ones in the middle because it extends a bit further to the wrap around balcony on the side. What I loved about this balcony is the fact that there was no wind. When I have been on open deck at night or a regular side balcony, it gets so windy. I could sit out at night and relax on the aft as it was so calm and peaceful. The only downside to this room is that you can hear some deck scraping from the lounge chairs above. They stack them at night between 9-10pm to clean the deck. I preferred the 9th floor though versus the aft balconies after as I prefer the shade. Well worth the extra money and I have already reserved my aft cabin for 2018 on the Splendor as I don’t want to miss out on that balcony. Read entire member review >>
What a wonderful cabin. sandwiched between two other cabins, aft view extra deep and extra wide. 2 chairs, 2 loungers and a table. Sad part was the weather, and not Carnival's fault of course but rain kept us from fully enjoying it, Still we did have a couple breakfasts out there (my favorite part of the trip). Cabin Steward was excellent . kept us full of ice and always a friend face in the hallway. Read entire member review >>
This cabin is a gem. Very nice size with an extra large balcony. I did feel a lot of sway during the cruise while I was trying to sleep. I am not sure if it is the ship or the waters we were sailing through but it was rough on several nights. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 8472 in an extended aft cabin on the Verandah deck. The cabin was a bit larger than most traditional side balcony cabins, even though Carnival will report it is the standardized 185 square feet. Of course the balcony is larger as well... and we enjoyed the cabin overall. Read entire member review >>
