One note, the cats listed under the room numbers are incorrect as those rooms have since been classified. You should send that pic to your TA LOL.....

It is mind boggling......
I am looking at the cabin #'s on the Dream room thread......many of the 5E's are midship.......or even a bit more "forward". The DCL website says 5E's are decks 5, 6, 7, 8 or 9. But the Dream room thread only shows deck 5.

My TA told me I would definitely be AFT ???? So confusing.....but I am fine.....will wait and see. I don't think there's anyway to figure this thing out

These are the 5E's listed on the Dream thread :
(Cat 5E) - 5024, 5052, 5052, 5052, 5524, 5524, 5544, 5546, 5546, 5548, 5552, 5552, 5552,

Those WERE 5Es & had been since reclassified to Cat 4E. That thread is old, but the pics are still very relevant (just not the Cat#s under the room numbers). The NEW 5Es are the OLD 6As and are all aft I just showed you that thread for pics really. Just look at the 1st pic only.

Good luck with your room assignment!

Question : We just recently changed our 6B GTY to a 5E GTY. I understand I can be upgraded....but what if I don't want to be upgraded ? I sort of would prefer to get one of the 5E cabins. Can I put in a request to DCL to not be upgraded ? I suppose an upgrade is any other verandah just a higher category ? Like a 5D or 4D i.e. ?

OK, now I'm back playing the GTY game because a bunch of cats. were released for my 9/1 Fantasy cruise today. So, I called and paid to do an upgrade from an 11C to a 9C (totally worth it - even though there's only 2 of us I like having the split bath). But, it was a GTY....so, here I go again! I sail in 28 Days and I've started this GTY game all over again! I guess I'll be checking the website multiple times per day again!

Pixie Dust would be AWESOME!

Yes, I am...but for more reasons than this!

Like I said, this cruise is a gift from me to my mom for her 60th Birthday. If spending a little more $$ to upgrade to a deluxe oceanview stateroom makes her happy, I will be happy!
