My amazing TA got us an upgrade on the enchantment to cabin 8012, family oceanview stateroom.... deckplans say its 293 sq. ft, BUT her rep from RCCL says its not, its over 500 sq. ft. which is right? of course, not that it matters a whole lot, but im curious.It is huge!! Take it as long as you don't mind not having a balcony. We stayed in this cabin in August. It has seperate sleeping areas. One has two top bunks and two lower bunks. The other sleeping area I believe has a king bed. We had so much space for clothes! Plus the couch is a pull out! This can sleep 8!!!!
Hi,It is a family oceanview room, not a Royal Family Suite...but I forgot to mention we got Conceiger Club with it! That made it all the better!! It was almost like having a suite, but not quite there! The room is an odd shape, but I have to tell you I never had such privacy from my kids before on a ship!
From the deck plan, 8012 appears to be a cat FO - Family Oceanview. I stayed in one on the Vision (same class of ship) and it was closer to 293 sq ft. Still a good-size room, but only one bathroom. Perhaps the 500 sq ft room is the Royal Family Suite? If so, that's a different category room - you can tell via the color-coded deck plan on the website, with each category having a specific color. 8012 appears to be FO, not Family Suite.
Either way - its bigger than the standard oceanview room, for sure!
ps - I hope I'm wrong and you are in the Royal Family Suite - what a coup that would be!!
Have a great trip
TW... thanks so much!It was reconstructed during the stretch. I could not get any info on this cabin before the cruise so we had no idea what we were walking into! We were more than happy with it! We did not get priority embarking like suites did, but drinking for free in the CC for a cocktail hour every night was great! Julian was the best!!
why is it that the deck plans say its smaller than that with 1 bathroom? was this room reconstructed even AFTER the stretch?

WOW - that's an awesome deal and one I will be taking note of!! We travel with four kids and although the FO was a big money saver, one bathroom for six people was a bit rough...
2 questions for ya`ll..Sorry just got back from PTA meeting....I don't know, but I would think so. You will be with all the suites that have that access, that is why I think they give it to you. That is my theory!! Enjoy it! And tell Julian hello for me!!
first.. why have i seen this cabin listed as 3 different sq. ft's over about 3 different deck plans? on one, its the radio room, but they must have built and re-built this cabin about 3 times!
also bc this was a free upgrade, do u think we probably wont get the concierge lounge? not that im complaining, just curious
