Cabin options for 5?


Recommended Posts

Ok, need opinions. I have the option of 2 cabins in Cat. 11 or a Cat 4 Family w/ Verandah for a $450 difference. Obviously a much nicer room, but with 3 kids (ages 4-14), I'm still not sure that 2 rooms won't be the better deal. Is the Cat 4 room nice enough and roomy enough for 5?

What about two adjoining staterooms either in cat 10 or cat 9? The category 4 staterooms are nice and you would certainly enjoy the balcony. But the room really isn't that big and you all are still sharing the floor space, (split) bathroom and tv of one stateroom. But traveling with children, I strongly recommend the safety and convenience of adjoining rooms. Perhaps you can get adjoiners for a fare similar to that of the cat 4? As much as I love a balcony, I'd go for comfort, convenience and safety - you'll enjoy your cruise more.

Thanks for the reply. Slim pickins' at this point for the fantastic Fl. resident deals. There were no Cat 8 or 9's available. They couldn't get me adjoining rooms but they are next door. My thoughts were the same as yours though, add'l floor space and bathroom are a big deal, despite the verandah. Hubby thinks balcony is the deal breaker, whereas I think the privacy and bathroom issues are. UGH! Need to decide by tonight!

I'm happy now. I called back and there was almost a $500 per room difference from Cat 11 to Cat 10, but only $100 between Cat. 9 and 11....and yesterday I was told I'd have to jump to a Cat 7 ($900 difference). Today there were plenty of adjoining rooms offered at Cat 9. For the great price I jumped on it, thankful to have adjoining rooms for the kids. I'm thinking it just depends on how hard the agents are willing to look.


Thanks again.

We had a Cat. 4 in Dec., with 3 kids 10-7-5.

COZY quarters for a week!

Our biggest issues were...

TV is on the kids side! When we put them to bed, closed the drape, NO TV!

Can't really get to the balcony while kids are sleeping, as have to crawl over Murphy bed to get to balcony.

Many love the split bathroom, but I would have been MUCH happier w/ one larger space.

You will have much more space w/ 2 rooms. Adjoining is perfect...put those kids in one, and you can have a tad of privacy. We will definitely get 2 rooms for our next family Disney cruise!
