I just found out that Carnival has a stateroom category called 1A. This apparently is not something that they actively advertise because its a much cheaper room. I also found out that you also can ask for the 1A guarantee where you can possibly get bumped up. I am in the process of booking a cruise on the Valor for April 07 and they had some port hole rooms in this category...some have bunk beds with a sofa and some have the separate twin beds. After comparing the prices of the 1A to the 4A and 6A categories, I figured this category would really appeal to someone on a tight budget or looking to save a bit of money. You have to ask for this category being that they wont proactively tell you about it. Not sure why Carnival is keeping this secret. Anyways, I just want to know if anyone else has booked on the 1A category and what was your experience and what other info could you tell me about it?
