Switch stateroom #8046 for #8016????

My TA just called and offered me Cat. 2 #8016 instead of my Cat.3 #8046. I have until the disney computer systems comes back up to decide. From the pictures I can find it looks like the Cat.3 room looks nicer? Is it just a back picture????I would appreciate any feedback on anyone who has stayed in these 2 rooms, I really don't need the extra bedroom. THANKS!!!!

Go for the Cat. 2!!!!!! We're staying in 8016 in just four weeks and we've stayed in it before. It is awesome. Pictures don't do the suite justice. JHMO When are you cruising?

If they are going to upgrade you for no charge, why not switch?

If it's a free upgrade i'd bite their hands off, Cat 2 sleeps up to 7 has 2 beds, a whilpool tub and a triple wide verandah, only 2 catergory 2 suites onbard, it's on deck 8
cat 3 8046 is also on deck 8 but has one bed, two baths, a double sofa and a double verandah.

Cat 3 is 614 sq ft and cat 2 is 945 sq feet so alot bigger too, they both look gorgeous but i think the extra rooms would swing it for me, have a great cruise.

We are sailing Feb. 2005. Have you seen the 3 Cat. to compare them? Is all the extra space taken up with the extra bedroom?

I'm just looking in the passporter and it doesn't seem that way, there is a massive lounge with large dining table and bar, and two good sized bedrooms, the lounge looks to be about the size of the cat 3 and 1/2 again and the beds look the same size.
if you go on the dcl site using this link http://disneycruise.disney.go.com/di...andahStateroom it takes you to a layout of the cat 3 and cat 2 and cat 2 does look a lot bigger, i'm just throwing in the dcl dvd to see what they look like.

8046 looks as if it's located under the whirlpools at the Goofy (family) pool. Might get kind of noisy and you might hear chairs/loungers being moved around early in the morning. We hardly heard any noise in 8016. Also, murphy bed is located in the bedroom in this suite rather than in the living room. HTH

Yes, the DVD shows Cat. 2 and Cat. 3 rooms. DVD has so much more than the VHS tape. Is Disney offering to switch you from 8046 to 8016 at no charge? If so, I'd jump on it. Can you tell I love the Cat. 2??? LOL

you are totally nuts if you don't take the upgrade....
i can't believe they're offering it to you this far out..

remember that not all cat 3 staterooms are the same...
some are MUCH bigger and much better laid out than others...
if memory serves, the one you're in, is not one of the good ones...
i think that the good cat 3 staterooms are 8032, 8034, 8532, 8534......
we stayed in 8534 and it was amazing....but people who were further down (not in one of the 4 mentioned above) complained bitterly about the cramped size and about how it's not fair that our cat 3 stateroom was so much bigger than theirs (and i have to say, it DID look a lot bigger)...

but even if it were between the cat 3 i was in and a cat 2, i would go for the cat 2...

we're going in a cat 1 this summer....i can't wait....
