Did it seem like your category V had a higher ceiling in the shower?

Thank you for your review. We've only looked at the first 2 pages, but it has been very helpful for us, as we think about upgrading this fall's 7 night cruise.
Thanks for reading!

My sister and I are both tall: 5'10" and 6'0" and I think the showers were high in cat V like the T. The shower had the rain shower from above and was plenty tall as I recall. Of course the T is nicer in general but as far as hight I think it was the same.

I really enjoyed the Cat V and the amenities that go along with it. I wish the older ships had this room type.

Thanks for the fantastic TR! We did an Eastern Caribbean cruise last year in a concierge room with veranda. We loved it so much and booked another cruise while on board. We are going in April and this time we are staying in a one bedroom We can't wait!! We did excursions last year in St. Maarten and St. Thomas. We will be staying on the ship in St. Thomas and we are going to San Juan this time and getting off the ship briefly. We figure it's a great time to take advantage of so many people being shore side. Then three days at WDW at Boardwalk Thanks again for the memories!!!!

Smile Concierge Staterooms on Fantasy

Thank you so much for this fabulous report! I loved seeing all the photos of the Concierge Stateroom. We'll be on the Fantasy in one of the rooms in April, so it was great to see more detailed photos of that area. Usually you only see photos of the Suites and Lounge.

Best trip report!

I just found your report and read it through in one sitting! My Fantasy cruise is coming up and I'm going with my sister, and I loved your dual commentary and photos. I especially loved that one of you is planner because we're like that too. However, you made concierge sound so good that I'll have to keep that in mind for a (hopefully) future cruise.

I am so glad this trip report continues to be of use! Thank you for posting and reading!

We are gearing up for our next cruise across the Panama in May. Mom and Dad will be concierge and my sister and I have the connecting room again (but ours isn't concierge). We are all really looking forward to it!

Hope to do another trip report this summer - stay tuned...

Glad you enjoyed it and that it was useful to you. I'm just a week away from my next cruise - the Panama Canal on the Wonder. I'll do a trip report when I return and plan to take lots of photos again. Best wishes for your cruise!

Posted a review of Pop Century and Yacht Club

With just five days before setting sail on my next cruise, I posted a quick review of one night at Pop Century compared to one night at Yacht Club:

This is warm up so I'm not rusty when it comes time to post my TR for this Panama Canal cruise!
