mgades-If you don't mind a nice motel room-you will have absolutely no problem with a beautiful balcony stateroom on any ship! They are bright,cheerful,airy and quite roomy! You will absolutely love it!! Don't be surprised to find yourself booking another cruise while you are aboard!

Bon Voyage,

BillyBuzzy

mgades, welcome. Billy is correct. The only area you might get a little uneasy in is the hallways. They are tight, narrow and long.

When they built Pride, they reconfigured the hallways a bit and put a jag in them. It breaks it up quite a bit.
Breath deeply and enjoy your cruise.

The balcony is a good choice for you. There are plenty of open areas on the ship where you can run to if needed.

I used to suffer with clasterphobia (sp?) a bit myself and have slowly overcame it, or atleast I think I am. I too wondered about being on the ship and not having a "way off of it". That's my fear with airplanes as well. I did post a thread about being scared and was very reassured that you just basically feel like you are on a big resort.....so enjoy. You'll have a great time I'm sure!!!

my wife is very clasterphoic we had a balcony suite on our last cruise she really loved it sat our there alot no problems, there is so much room on a cruise ship to move around. my wife thought she would be affraid to be at sea for a couple of days and not be able to get off but no problems like i said. the airplane rides are a little harder for her.

I am no spelling expert but my spell checker tells me: claustrophobia! You learn something new every day.

Cheffy, I do believe you are wrong. I thought we were referring to someone that is worried about chromosome damage, thus "Clasterphobic" as per the definition below.

Clastogenic (kl?s't?-j?n'?k) effects are damages to chromosomes, such as breaks in or change in the of amount of proteins.

I am claustrophobic as well (extreamly) and my husband and I have been on three cruises. Our first was on the Holiday, which is Carnival's smallest ship. I was fine, even in the hallways. I didn't use the elavators, I always used the stairs. Sometimes it can be a workout using the staris, but it's worth it if it is more calming to you. Carnival has bigger rooms than any other cruise line, and since you have a balcony, I think you will do fine. We have always had "just" an Ocean View Room and that was enough to make me feel like I wasn't so closed in. Good luck and happy sailing. I'm sure you will do just GREAT!

I love my proteins, any change in the amount of proteins I consume is a 'fearful" thought. Yes, I love animal protein: beef, pork, lamb, fish, veal, duck, chicken, all seafood, all crustaceans, even bunny rabbits. I guess I am petaphobic!
