Okay, we have picked out the date that we want to cruise. (Eastern - November 13-20, 2004) and we are getting ready to put down our deposit. This is my dilemma...My TA priced out category 8 for us (Myself, DH, DS(13) and DD (1 week shy of 4) and then for the heck of it I asked her to check the price for a category 6 room. The price difference is only $384!! My parents and my Aunt and Uncle are already booked in a category 6 room on deck 6. I was a little nervous of the verandah with my DD, however, it would be really nice to sit out there after she goes to bed. Should I just book the category 6? I think that I worry too much, she would not be on the verandah alone and I'm sure that she will go out on one in one of the other cabins that my family is in. I think that I look at her now and see how little she is (2 1/2) and forget that she will be almost 4 at the time of our cruise. Please ease my mind. I'm sure that the verandah's are safe!! Thank you!!!
