Lettered Categories are concierge. V (deluxe verandah family room), T (1-bedroom suite), R (Royal Suite), S (2 bedroom Suite).

On the classic ships you only have T, R, S. All are Suites

On the new ships you only have V, T, R. V is not a Suite

You could look at the V as a kind of between category 4 and concierge. You get most of the concierge perks with a V but you do not get en-suite dining, because you are not in a suite. You can still get room service but no room service from the main dining room menu nor from the hot breakfast menu. The V room is like a category 4 room, it has some upgraded amenities but otherwise the space is approximately the same. Also the cost difference between a 4 and a V are not that great.

So an estimation is to take a look at the cost to upgrade about a month from the cruise and then to estimate the port upgrade cost to be approximately 50%. This is just a guideline. One good thing is the cost is set, it is not per person or anything like that. As a PP said you can order if you are in a Suite but if it a Concierge category V then you can not get MDR room service. Also a downside to port upgrade is then you didn't have that 120 day booking window to use.

One thing to note is that the V's we have been in had a pullout sofa, so it is a much larger sleeping area. The 4's we have had use the flip down sofa that just turns into a single bed.

Category T is the one bedroom suite in concierge
Category V is the family verandah in conceirge (it's not a suite)

as for me, i would never book anything less than the one bedroom.

And yes, concierge is worth it to me.

but that's me - it might not be worth it to others..

Should we consider a Category T Upgrade?

We are getting ready to sail out on our first DCL voyage. We are booked in a Category 05D stateroom, and our DS8 is SOOOO looking forward to sleeping in the bunk bed that pulls out of the ceiling.

However I am contemplating a upgrade Category T Concierge 1-Bedroom Suite if its available when we check in at the port. The category says it sleeps 5 but I only see 4 beds (king/queen in master, sofa bed, and Murphy Bed). Where is the 5th? Is there a bunk that pulls from the ceiling? Or is it a queen sleeper sofa that sleeps 2?

I want the upgrade if it affordable, but might let it go if it means my son has to sleep on a Murphy Bed and loses out on the bunk. What to do? What to do?

It's a double convertible sofa. A sofa bed that pulls out from the bottom, not the Pullman-style single bed.

What ship? If it's the Dream or Fantasy, then another option would be booking a Cat V. It's a slightly bigger room than a 5D and still has a drop down bunk. And its Concierge.
