Hi - I'm a first time cruiser and have booked a Penthouse Suite, category 12 on Carnival's Baja cruise on "Paradise". I see that there are also Category 11 Suites. Does anyone know the difference and will I be pleased with my selection? It's our first time on a cruise as well as an anniversary trip.

Andrealovescruising -
Thanks! I feel better already. I've just heard such horror stories and I want to make it special. I guess I made the right call.

Skimmer, On Pride last month the cruise director stated that Paradise is rated #1 in the Carnival fleet right now. Pride is second, trying hard to be #1. We cruised to Cabo and Mazatlan. P.V. was axed because of a propulsion breakdown. Bring your binoculars to see all the whales out in that beautiful ocean. Long Beach port is very user friendly. You will LOVE, LOVE, LOVE cruising! Have fun!

The Paradise is a Fantasy Class Ship. All of the Cat 12 Suites on that class of ship are located on Upper Deck, which is one deck below Empress Deck - that is where you will board and disembark. The Cat 11 mini suites are located on Veranda Deck at the top of the ship.

The balconies on the Cat 12 suite are recessed into the hull of the ship - the room is pushed out into the hallway to compensate, while the Cat 11 balconies are open. There is also a promenade on the deck below the Cat 11 balconies so they have less privacy

For our 20th anniversary, I surpised my wife
with a cat 12 for our Hawaii cruise onboard the Spirit. It was fantastic. There is a major difference between a cat 11 & a cat 12.

I have 1 Cat and he's enough to keep me busy . I cant believe people have 11 and 12 and have time to chat online.
If you think about it what's really the big difference 11 or 12 it's only one more.
