I would not pay the extra money. The cat. 6E cabins are (230 sqft) and the 6A and 6B cabins are 220. You will have to use a rollaway in any cabin for 5. If I were you I would book a 6A gty and you could get a 6E or even a Balcony or even a suite and save the money. I have also been told that the 6E cabins the floor to ceiling window slant into the cabin and you loose space anyway because of the window. I have a cat. 6A GTY. for 5 booked on the Victory on 6/02. Hope this helps.
