Had a Cat AA (aft) suite with friends next door in a Cat AB (aft) mini-suite. I have gone into the Cat AC mini-suites and like the setup of them much better than the Cat AB except for the fact that they are aft.
The AC has more of a 2-room set up feel to it. Bathroom was a nice size. Balcony was the width of the room.
CruiseAholic - good info - also, are you familiar with the Celebrity ships? (given your name, I am assuming...) we are deciding between an AC on the Dawn or a Sky Suite on the Summit. Any advice on that? and also - privacy and shade on the balcony of the Dawn... Thanks
Yes, I have been Celebrity ships (Horizon, Century, Mercury (2x), Millennium (2x), Summit).
I had a Category 1 Suite on the Mercury the first time and a Sky Suite on the Century. Deciding between those and an AC on the Dawn is a hard draw. The Sky Suite setup is more of a 1 large room setup, where as the AC had a 2-room feel, with a curtain that drew between the living area and the bedroom area.
