Rooms with two portholes

Does anyone have any information about the O8A category on the Disney Fantasy? The information that I have says that it has two large portholes and one bathroom. I'm trying to decide if I should try to upgrade or not, and I was interested in your opinions on this type of room.

That's correct. They're square-shaped, have 2 large portholes and one bathroom. Personally, I love them!

My understanding is that they were originally designed to be handicapped-accessible but for whatever reason are not designated such. But that's the reason for the square shape and 1 bathroom - and I think most do not have a tub just a shower.

We have sailed in 5520 on the dream and have it booked for our next 2 cruises. It has 2 very large portholes, a dividing wall between the sleeping and sitting area, 2 tvs, the bathroom is not split, but does have a tub, and it only sleeps 3. We absolutely LOVE this room. It is massive compared to any other room. Although I do love a veranda, I far prefer the space this room provides, and the portholes are so huge you get a much better view from inside the room. Our last cruise wAs a b2b, and we could only get this room for the first leg, second leg was a veranda. Both my daughter and I felt almost claustrophobic after going from so much space to the standard sized cabin, even with the veranda. We'll always book this cabin when it's available!

8A cabins

We just booked 6512 on the Fantasy. Would you rather have the extra space or the split bath?
