Default Family stateroom (6E) on Carnival Glory

I'm booking a cruise for my family and noticed that the Carnival Glory has a family stateroom, category 6A. We prefer a balcony cabin but thought this might give us more room for myself, my husband, 7yr old and 1 yr old. For those of you who have seen or staying in this type of room, what do you think?

A Cat. 6A is an oceanview cabin Riviera deck which will be the identical inside square footage and configuration as the Cat. 8 balcony cabin. What they call "family cabin, probably has the overhead fold-down bunks for the kids. The area of the outside balcony is the only thing that makes a Cat 8 larger. The Cat. 6E is larger than other Cat 6 cabins cuz it has a wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling window and sitting area over the space occupied by the balcony on the lower decks. It has 235 SF inside compared to 185 SF inside Cat 6 + 8. I've been in #1102 Cat. 6E on the Glory and while it's a fantastic cabin, it's a little pricey to book. I got upgraded from a Cat 4 guarentee, or I'd have never spent the extra money for that cabin. I'm cheap and proud of it!

You know...I checked again and it is a category 6E, not a 6E. It's not that bad in price, about the same for a balcony for this particular sailing.

OK, I didn't notice but you had 6E in the title a 6A in the post. Like I said, I was in #1102 which is first cabin, port side, spa deck (highest cabins on ship). It has a gorgeous view, the spa/gym is right around the corner, and there's some great open air sunbathing on the spa and sky deck. The room is larger than a Cat 6 by the area of the balcony which is enclosed on this cabin. There's only maybe 20 cabins up there, so it's quiet but rocks-n-rolls when the ship moves. Here's a picture of #1102 Cat 6E and #8404 Cat 8C. The sitting area's inside on one and outside on the other. BTW, the railing you see on the Cat 6E, that's not a public walk but a small catwalk for window washing maintenance. Didn't want you to think you'd have passer-byes lookin into your cabin. Here's the link to the pictures.

We stayed in a cat 6e on the Victory. Great view and the hallways are very quite.
