Default Floor To Ceiling Windows?

How do you identify which OV cabins have the large floor-to-ceiling windows? I'm looking on the Victory deck plans and don't see any indication of that in the legend or category descriptions -- does Triumph class just not have them, or am I missing something?

Or did I just make these cabins up?

I think they are on the conquest class and I believe they are on the lido decks....I have seen photos of them so you are remembering that they do exist.

Hi Leo
We had F/C windows in a 6E on the Victory- Spa Deck

Any particular cabins in mind?

I asked the PVP about them, and she listed the following as available: 1398 1424 2300 2320 2231 2415 2234 2263 -- but when I checked the deck plans, they look like garden variety OVs.

According to Cruisedeckplans.. they are only on the Spa Deck.. the cabins you listed do not read F/C windows, while on the Spa Deck they do..

That's because they are gone, they are now 8Fs at least according to the deck plan on Carnival's site.

Once the Conquest class go into dry dock, all those 6Es, are being converted to balconys, ..... gone. Better get one quick before they are gone.

OCEAN VIEWIncludes stateroom categories: 5A, 6A, 6B (obstructed view) and 6E (family staterooms feature floor-to-ceiling windows). Category 5A staterooms feature two portholes instead of a picture window.

Ah, Spa Deck... that's waaay too high for me. I'm surprised I was even aware of those cabins, then -- I never scope out cabins that high up! I had no idea OVs even existed up that high -- I thought everything up there was a balcony.


Thanks all.

What's the selling point? Up that high, wouldn't they generally as expensive, or more, than a balcony on a lower deck? Or not?

Default hmm

well, i got lucky and and recd an upgrade, i didnt actually pay for the f/c room. My best guess would be if you had little ones, and wanted to best view w/out the fear of a balcony. the view is just spectacular...really, you see more ocean than even the balcony. sitting at the window with a cup of coffee was really nice. they have great curtains that block the light if you want to sleep in too...

Wanderlust88,
There is a thread out there asking asking questions about the
[ Valor spa deck cabins ]. A few people had questions about those particular cabins and the spa deck in general. Would you check out that thread and see if you could answer a few questions. It would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks Julie

Nice to see someone close to home on here....I live about 15 minutes from Elon down Hwy 87. I think the Floor to Ceiling Windows are 5A rooms on the Triumph.

We were on the spa deck on Triumph in Feb 2007...... loved it. It was very quiet up there with very limited rooms and the floor to ceiling windows were nice. Not sure if they will be changed to balcony rooms when Triumph goes to dry dock or not.......

5A are port holes, except on spirit class. I think the reason triumph on cruisedeckplans doesnt show the 6Es but still shows them on Carnival is because triumph is about to get them converted and Carnival just hasnt updated the deck plans yet.

I took my family on the Conquest back in May of 2008. We had two adjoining rooms on the Spa deck. The view was breathe taking! I highly recommend these rooms for families with kids. They were the best!!!

I am a bit disappointed that they are converting these to balconies, I loved these rooms, the view was spectacular. These rooms are also a little bigger!
