search for a post by krisannB from the past month or so. She posted details of several of these rooms. I've also updated some details we know from before

Deck 5
5018 (HA) - sleeps 4, no tub [designed HA, but not booking as HA]
5020 - "mini-suite" w/wall divider, sleeps 3, no split bath
5022 - "mini-suite" w/wall divider, sleeps 3, no split bath

5518 (HA) - sleeps 4, no tub [designed HA, but not booking as HA]
5520 - "mini-suite" w/wall divider, sleeps 3, no split bath
5522 - "mini-suite" w/wall divider, sleeps 3, no split bath

Deck 6
6012 (HA) - no pole, no split bath, no privacy curtain
6014 (HA) - pole in center, no spilt bath
6016 - pole in center, no privacy curtain, no spilt bath, sleeps 4

6510 (HA) - no pole, no split bath, no privacy curtain
6512 (HA) - pole in center, no spilt bath
6514 - pole in center, no privacy curtain, no spilt bath, sleeps 4

We are Cat 6A peeps ourselves, but this info might really help some people. Anyone have any more info that we can add to this list??

We were just in 5518 last week... I took some pictures and will try to post them tonight when I get home. We loved this cabin! It was just DH and myself in it and it was huge! We were not sure how we were going to feel about the HA bathroom but it did not bother us at all. We loved the huge double portholes.... They were really cool! Now I do have to mention that we were upgraded to this cabin so we really did feel extra lucky to have it! (but if the price was right I would book it again in a heartbeat!!!) Also, we did not have any problems with noise.... And even took an afternoon nap.

Great! Pics would be awesome! Did you have a wall divider making it look like a mini-suite or a pole in the center of your room?

The cabin didn't have a pole or a wall... It was just open! There wasn't a privacy curtain though so that might make a difference for some. Since it was just the 2 of us it didn't matter. It did not have a ton of storage for 4... For 2 it was fine, but for more, hmmm... But the cabin itself was very large. We have connecting inside cabins in August and are going to feel it I'm afraid!!! Lol!!!

This is very helpful - we just booked 6014 & 6016 connecting for December '12. There will be many many pictures after we return if anyone needs them! Let the countdown begin!

DW and I just booked 5020 for Oct 2013 cruise to Eastern. We are excited about the room and the cruise. The pictures of the similar room were very helpful. Thank you very much. We can't wait to explore the Fantasy. It will be very different for me with the bathroom. I have been so use to the split design. I don't think it will be an issue.

The 8A cabins on Deck 6 do not have a wall like the ones on Deck 5. See first post on this thread for room descriptions.

MouseSavers has a nice write-up of the 08A cabins at http://www.mousesavers.com/dcladvice.html - just scroll down to the section titled Category 8A "Mini-Suites" and Oversized/Open Plan Staterooms

I like these rooms, they seem to have a lot more room than a balcony. Maybe i will try this next time if I can get DH to agree to no verandah. I would love the shower!
