Just looked back and saw that you have an 8D. Personally, I would stay there. I upgraded from that to a cat 5 on our upcoming spring break cruise because of the price glitch opening day and the crazy pricing. Honestly, just found out about the room size & storage difference and am not crazy about that. We will be booking cat 8s from now on because of that.

Yeah, I'm on the 3/30 which also suffered from the glitch pricing. Good times, good times!

Ah so inexpensive to upgrade for you. Are there any cat 4s open?
Ours had a few GTYs last week and it would have been only $200 to upgrade. The cat is as big as an 8 and you have a verandah. We opted to stay put because we are in the 2nd verandah forward now so less chance of issues spending time out there now. We also like staying forward on the ship.

Our glitch wasn't as good as your glitch. It would be $700 to go to a Cat 4.

We would only be upgrading from a 5D to a 4D. It was $200 from a cat 9 though, so less than $400 from 9 to 4. Guess the Easter week price was slightly higher. Either way, you will enjoy the 8D.

When they were initially released, the Mar 23rd and Mar 30th Fantasy cruises were priced at a level most assumed was incorrect. They were very low compared to other sailings, and very,very low given that they are the Spring Break and Easter Cruise. DCL caught it pretty quickly but honored the pricing booked by people before they caught it.

Could you please explain more about the room size & storage in the cat 5's?
If I am looking at both cat 5 and 4's do you recommend the cat 4?

Yup, I was darn glad I went ahead and pulled the trigger when I did.

You can see pictures of both on this thread.

The 4s will have the same layout as the cat 8 pictured first...only it has a verandah instead of the porthole.
