    I am looking up a few cruise dates. One date has cat's 12, 11 and 10 available, the other has no 12's. So for about 50 more I can go with a 10. Is a 10 worth it? Is it that much better?I know they have more room and a split bathroom. Any other beniits?

    10's can have a different location on the ship... (decks 1, 2, 5, 7)...while Cat 12 (only 13 Cat.12 rooms total on the ship) are all on Deck 2 forward. Also IIRC you can only book a 12 in a GTY status, meaning you can't pick your room...while if you book a 10 and there is availability you can select your location.

    The oher upside to 12's is that DCL will allow a family of 4 to book the room, yet it only holds 3..so groups of 4 in a 12 get an automatic (free) upgrade to at least a Cat.11.

    In my personal opinion, for a price difference of only $50 I would just take the 10. The split bathroom is super convenient.

    HTH:thumbsup2

    Is the cat. 10 cabin $50 more for the cabin, or per person? The extra space in a cat. 10 cabin is due mostly to the split bath.

    I would do a category 11 sideways rooms. It doesn't have the split bathroom, but it seems roomier and has a steamer trunk! I'm staying in my second one this trip because I loved it so much the last time. :thumbsup2

    I'd take the 10 in a heartbeat.

    $150 per person or total?

    Personally, I'd probably book the 12. We've done it several times and usually are upgraded to at least an 11. However, there are only 2 of us and I usually shower in the locker room after I work out.

    We've never been disappointed booking a 12 gty.

    Thanks, I think I like the others better thoguh. If someone goes in and out while DD is sleeping it seems like it would bother her more with the door right there.
