Round shower vs. regular shower

Wondering what are the differences between the round shower and regular shower on Fantasy. Trying decide if I should switch from a cat 5 cabin to a cat 4. My husband is 6'2" if that makes a difference. Thanks all.

We have had both. Two kids do fit better in the regular tub. Didn't notice a difference in ceiling height.... But we had a deck 9 cabin which did seem to have a higher ceiling than a friends deck six cabin. I might have photos of both if you would like pm me and I will send what i have tomorrow.

I am 6-3 and I had room in both showers but I loved the round tub. I had a few inches above my head. Plus the rain head was AWESOME.

I am 6'0" and found the same thing. The round shower has several more inches of headroom, and I can just stand under the head and enjoy. With the regular one, it seems that the ceiling is just about touching the top of my head. Although the shower head is on a detachable hose, it was less convenient to use as I had to crouch down in order to have any room above my head to use it for my head. I didn't use the tub as a bath on either trip so I can't speak to that.

We've had both. Round shower has a rain shower head in the middle overhead, a hand shower, a molded part of the shower enclosure to sit down, and two laundry strings for hanging items to dry. I would say that the rectangular tub is easier for folks who want a bath, and the round shower is easier for folks who want to shower. For those who like rain showers, the round shower is a must.

Here is another vote for the round tub. I am 6'4'' and the round tub seems to have a little more head room. Also, I really enjoy the rain shower feature.

We have had the round and the regular. I am only 5', but I vote for the round. I like the room and the rain shower head was awesome!!

Although I didn't notice any difference in height of the round shower verse the regular shower I do prefer the round shower. I really enjoyed the rain shower head.
