    I've already booked our cruise but, want to upgrade to a cat 00V. Available are, 12022, 12008, 12016, 12516 and 12522. Any advantage to one over the other or should I just pick one and go with it.

    12008 should have a deeper balcony due to it being on the "bump" of the ship.

    I believe that 12008 has the bump out veranda. We were in 12010 and had the bump out veranda. It is roughly twice as deep as a standard veranda, I have a trip report for this room that has pictures.

    08 will have a larger veranda because of the bump out. Go for it!:thumbsup2

    I stayed in 12514 and would not recommend 12516 unless you are an earlier riser. Two mornings we were woken up at 7:30 a.m. by the bump-bump-bump of the music from the spin class in the gym directly below us. Personally, I prefer my vacation with a dash of extra sleep.

    I'm planing far in advance for this cruise.... Not until 3/30/14. I've reserved 12008. Am I guaranteed this suite?

    When you select a stateroom at booking, and particularly one at this level, I think you are pretty much "guaranteed" as long as there isn't something out of their control that occurs making that room unavailable - plumbing problem and it flooded with soaking wet carpets, etc. 100% guaranteed, no as there's always that odd possibility something could happen, but 99% guaranteed.

    Enjoy your cruise!

    Stayed in 12008 on the Dream last month. Loved it. Deep verandah was bonus.

    Technically no, but if you reserved that cabin, it's yours. DCL reserves the right to move you. What many suggest is place a note on the ressie that says "Do not move or upgrade". Well that's what we note. Perhaps you should just say "Do not move, upgrades welcome".

    ETA; Have you seen this photo? http://i160.photobucket.com/albums/t177/HallsofVA/458bddbe.jpg

    I have not seen that photo, awesome. I'm upgrading from 4E, mainly because of the concierge service and deck. The longer veranda is certainly a bonus.

    Found your trip report. Very helpful. I have been struggling for days on whether it would be worth it or not. Good to know that I won't be making a mistake. I'm fairly laid back and less demanding than my DW. I'm sure that she will appreciate the extra service.

    I'm booked in 12510 I think it has the bump but am I in for the same experience as 12514 and 12516 with the gym??

    You are on the bump. Directly below you is the rainforest room. Basically you have 12512, a cat T, buffering you from the gym. You should be ok, definitely better off than 12514, 16, 18, 20, which are directly above gym.
