I emailed DCL about this. I think I may have responded to a question you had on another thread . According to the rep who emailed me back, ONLY 4A-Ds are family staterooms. She did NOT include 4Es in the list of family staterooms. I had specifically emailed about 4Es, because on our last cruise our 4E was not a family stateroom and if you look on the deck plan they are all the same size. So I don't see how any of them could sleep 5. And they certainly aren't 299sf, as listed on the Web site. The rep didn't mention that part, even though I asked why they would incorrectly advertise them as family staterooms on the site. Oh well. I feel bad for any cruisers who think they booked a family stateroom and end up with a regular one! If anyone does end up with a 4E that actually is a family stateroom, I'd love to hear of it! I'd book one next time! I even asked if there were any such rooms and the rep ignored that part of my email, too. I took this to mean no, there aren't any .
