I have never sailed Disney but apparently will in a few years. My son and daughter in law have given notice that they will sail with my grandson on Disney in Europe in a couple of years. Looking at the Disney website I see Veranda cabins with a "White Wall" and "open air port hole" . Are these balconies? What can you tell me about an equivelant to a Carnival Balcony cabin on Disney.

What else would be good to know? We anticipate traveling with a gagle of people including a half dozen kids from 4 to 12.

You're in for a treat sailing on Disney. The "White Wall" (can't see through), is a category 6a or 6b Deluxe Verandah. Categories 5a through 5 E are Deluxe Balcony, but with Plexi-glass. I don't see anything in my information about "open air port hole". Unless you mean the inside room categories that have a "Virtual Port hole" which has an actual view of outside.

CruiseDad, I think what you are referring to is the Catagory 7A "Navigator Verandah." They are near the aft on decks 5, 6 and 7. It is a balcony that is enclosed in steel except for a very large circle that looks like a really big porthole but is "open air." When looking at the ship from a distance it looks very nice esthetically, but from the balcony it seems more like an "obstructed view."

Thanks
Is there a class that is more comparable to the kind of balcony on Carnival with just a railing about 4 ft high. From the pictures of the MAGIC it looks like mid ships have more what I'm thinking of. I don't think I'd like the Navigator Veranda, I agree sound like obstructed view. Perhaps if you have small adventerous children that is a benefit or even a safety thing. But my wife and I are old enough not to fall off a cruise ship.

I haven't been on Carnival yet but the 5A etc. that Cruise Fanatic mentioned are more like what I'm use to on Princess, with the see-through tinted Plexi-glass.
