Just my input on a cabin for 5, not specific to any cruise line...go for the connecting cabins, you will probably be thankful for the second bathroom. (and maybe the tv too
). And as you probably already know, connecting is important to specify, that way you have an internal door for immediate access without going into the hallway. We are a family of 5, and have done both a family cabin that slept 6 comfortably, a royal family suite, and of course the 2 connecting cabins. We really missed the 2nd bath, the kids are all girls, two of them teens, and getting ready was sometimes a challenge. Our favorite by far was the RFS...it was a 2br/2ba apartment! A definite splurge, but at the time it wasn't much more than our normal 2 cabins. The benefits made up for the difference, but I'm sure pricing for an AK cruise in the summer season is crazy high.
