Default Family of 4.. two cabins?

As my son and daughter have gotten older I have found that a cabin with 2 bunk beds is getting to small. I like to have a window and getting two window cabins can get expensive. My question is... which would be a better option.... one outside and one inside across the hall OR an outside suite.

Looking forward to my next cruise.... 6/2005

we just got back from the victory with our 2 and 5 year olds and we had two inside cabins with a connecting door. It was great having all that space, closet and drawer space and an extra bathroom. We don't care about having windows since the time spent in the cabin is for either getting ready or sleeping. we were on deck 6 (#6299 and 6301).

I've booked connecting cabins for my sister, her 13 year old twins and my self. With teenagers we need 2 bathrooms and closets. We'll also be able to have one cabin for the late night partiers and one for the early birds.

Also the 2 cabins were less expensive than a suite with 2 rooms.

We booked two cabins on the Triumph this past December. My husband and I had an ocean view, and the kids (14 and 10) were just down the hall in an inside cabin. We were able to book the two cabins through Carnival as past guests for the same price as if we were all in one cabin. This worked well as we had all the extra space, the extra bathroom, plus my husband and I had the privacy we wanted.

Happy Cruising!
