Carnival to Add More Balconies to Three Cruise Ships

You know balcony cabins are a hot commodity when a cruise line goes to the trouble of retrofitting existing ships to create more of them -- a not uncomplicated undertaking.

Carnival has announced that it will add balconies to dozens of cabins on three ships -- the Carnival Destiny, Carnival Triumph and Carnival Liberty. Each of the vessels has cabins with floor-to-ceiling windows that will be converted into balcony cabins over the next few months.

The three ships already have 480, 508 and 556 cabins with balconies, respectively, and will be getting 16, 14 and 18 new ones.

Carnival also says it will add two 750-square-foot “deluxe penthouse suites” to the Carnival Liberty that are nearly double the size of the largest cabins in the fleet.

“Balcony staterooms continue to be in great demand – in fact, they’re often the first cabin category to sell out,” Ruben Rodriguez, Carnival’s executive vice president of marketing and guest experience, said in a statement.

The new penthouse suites on the Liberty will boast a separate bedroom, expansive living area, and two full bathrooms, including one with a bathtub tub. They'll accommodate up to five people.
To book one of these new balconies, visit or call us at 1-800-788-2545.
