Default Glory Ocean View Aft Cabin - Larger?

I was just researching cabins on a 2010 Eastern Caribbean Cruise on the Glory. I noticed that there are some aft ocean view cabins that appear larger than the average ocean view cabin on the back of the ship. Specifically - cabin number 2477 and 2474. They are odd shaped but appear larger. Does anyone have information on these cabins?

On cruisedeckplans.com it says the rooms are 220 sq ft. like all the other ocean view rooms.

If the sizes are the same, I would consider a mid ship cabin then, with a shorter walk..Aft cabins are worth the walk, but, only for an aft balcony inho.. midship is more convenient for an ov....

I was suprised myself to find those cabin balconies no larger than the regular ones on the sides. Unlike Royal CAribbean's back balconies, those are huge. Its still nice to have a balcony back there, but half the joy in those is the size, no so in this case..

The cabins are just an oceanview that they are talking about.
