New categorie 4E staterooms - size ?

Hi,
we are currently checking for a 2013 Dream cruise and found those new categorized 4E staterrooms with the oversized balconies. Formerly these staterooms were categorie 5E.
Now our question for your specialists:
Categorie 5 rooms are normally smaller then Categorie 4 rooms. Even though now the DCL website shows the 4E rooms with the size of all cat. 4 rooms and also shows the round shower tub - cat 5 should have no round shower tub.

Has anyone been in these rooms (like 5650 or 5546) and can confirm which kind of room layout they have ? Really like cat 4 or are they still like cat 5 - which I assume...

Thanks for any help!
Thorsten

I was just in 5546 one and a half weeks ago. I loved this cabin and booked it for our Fantasy cruise in 2013. Now I really can't compare it to the other Cat 4 rooms since I saw none of those. But what I can tell you is that 5546 is not connecting and as a result seems to have much more storage room and our previous cruises inside connecting cabin. The 4E category is much like the cat 5 and 6 categories in the classic ships. (Except somewhat narrower.) There is not small area near the glass door with a chair. The cabin ends at the end of the couch. The extended verandah is worth it's weight in gold! 5546 is on the Starboard side which is where they shoot the fireworks off of. As a result we had a private viewing of the show from our verandah that because of the extension was all the better seen. I invited friends to our room and fit 14 people comfortably in that space. I highly recommend it. As far as the tub goes, it is the Standard square tub. One thing I'd like to add about that, the consensus was, among those I cruised with, that the square tub was better than the round. Another thing I'd like to add about the verandah in 5546. Because of the design of the ship the forward aspect of the verandah is curved as is the aft aspect of 5544 slightly decreasing the privacy of those areas. (i.e. one can see into ones neighbors verandah) At first I thought this would bother me but I quickly realized that everyone above us can see into the extension so the sensation of privacy was an illusion anyway. But this design feature does appear to cut into the size slightly of the extended verandahs. Maybe making my aft neighbors's verandah (5548) slightly more desirable. (although I never heard or seen them on the verandah which makes me think that they probably wasted their money!) I could be wrong on the desirability of the verandah because it appeared that my verandah may have been slightly wider than 5548's. I couldn't tell for sure unless I was on one of the upper deck verandah's looking down which I never had a chance to do.

Just my $.02

Looks like you got the specific answer on the rooms you asked about. I just wanted to add that for the Dream at least, DCL hasn't gone in and changed the bathrooms on reclassified rooms - I don't know if they even could if they wanted to. But even before the reclassification, there were some rooms that didn't have the same bathroom that most other rooms had. That was true with some of the Cat 8A rooms for sure that don't have split baths even though they were "Family" category rooms.

If some particular feature is really important to you, hopefully you can find the answer between the stateroom reports, TA guidance, and perhaps even DCL CMs. I wouldn't assume, especially for unusual rooms or reclassified rooms.

Thanks Cass, From that angle it's still a bit tough to tell, but one things for certain 5548 has more verandah than 5546. But it may only be by a little bit. I still loved it. It was quiet and close to the Forward Elevators.

8062 is across the ship from 8560 which you can find in the pictures in post 1. Same room other side of the ship.

Does anyone know how many Cat 6A cabins there are?
I have a guarantee and was wondering what my chances of being upgraded were.

Thanks
Donna

I stayed in stateroom 8502 a couple of weeks ago, and I made a short video tour of the room with my Flip cam:

Finally got our second GTY room assignment for our Feb cruise. We now have 6690 and 6192. Anyone have any pictures of either room?

Merry Christmas to all!
