I am currently booked on cat 3 with conn cat 4 for mexico cruise in June and was offered a cat 2. Right now therre is only 5 of us traveling so it it will cost us $1800 more to have 5 of us in cat 2 opposed to cat 3, if the addtional 2 people travel with us it will save us money to be a cat 2 but they are not 100% sure if they will be going yet.

I would love thoughts on this.

I have been in cat 2 before on last mexican cruise.

mardonna,

We have done the Cat. 3 connected to a Cat. 4 in 2004 (8080 and 8082) and have done a Cat. 1 in 2006 (8030). My advice would be to get a committment from the two remaining people as soon as possible. If you have five total, I would definitely go with the 3/4 if it is less expensive. If you have seven, I would go with the 2 given you will have some more common space. Hope this helps.

I think it depends on how people will be sleeping. In the Cat 2, two people would share the Queen bed in one bedroom, it doesn't separate into twins.
Then there would be two people in either the Queen in the 2nd bedroom or have that split into twins. One person can sleep in the bed that is in the ceiling of the 2nd bedroom, and one (possibly two) would share the sofa sleeper, although two on that wouldn't be very comfortable.

With the Cat 3 + 4 combo, you could have two people in the Queen in the Cat 3, one on the murphy bed, one or two on the sofa sleeper. In the Cat 4 room, you could have either two people in the Queen bed, or made into twins, two people, another one on the sofa, one in the murphy bed, and if needed, one in the pull-down ceiling bed.

Another advantage to the Cat 3 + 4 combo would be that you'd have 3 showers/tubs. Cat 2, you'd have three toilets, but only 2 showers/tubs.

We have a gorup of five women going on the Eastbound Repo, and we're doing Cat 3 + 4....8080 and 8082. We had five in the Walt Suite for the 11 Night Southern Caribbean, and I even like the idea of the 3 + 4 combo better than the Walt, as far as sleeping five adults who aren't married to eachother.

If you can justify the extra money I would go with the cat 2 even for just 5 people. The reason is because it will give you more space and completely seprate bedrooms with a common area in between

You didn't mention who will be traveling and if it is 5 adults, then either will work, but if it is 2 adults and 3 children the cat 2 would be better. Just my opinion

I looked at the inside of the cat 2. I was not impressed. Too much wasted space.

I'm sold on my favorite cat 3. Which one??? See if you can guess.
