Default Family of 5

There's lots of info for families of 4 but how about 5? Three kids - 12, 9 and 7. What's the best way to book our rooms; adjoining, family suite, don't even want to think about a balcony and inside - kids are too young for that. We are looking at either the RC or Celebrity. Any advice?

On RCI they have Oceanview Family Staterooms, sleeps 6 and they range from 227 sq ft to over 350 sq ft. This is perfect for a family of 5. You can see pictures on RCI's website under staterooms. Hope this helps. We did our family of 5, same ages long ago on Carnival Jubilee with 2 beds down, 2 bunks and a folding rollaway. We never felt crampt or at least don't remember feeling that way.

Well I'm booked on my first cruise also with family of 5 (14, 12, 12) and got side by side connecting cabins. I think the cost for this works out cheaper than a family suite because of the 3rd passenger discount. Plus the added advantage of 2 baths and privacy for parents as they can close the connecting door. My neighbours recently also travelled with family of 5 (14, 12, 6) and got outside cabin for mom & dad and inside cabin immediately across the hallway for the kids. They saved money and the kids liked their independence.

We booked connecting rooms for my husband and I and two 12 year olds. There should be plenty of room for the five of you to do this. It only cost us $20.00 more to get two rooms verses one. Plus you have 2 bathrooms and privacy for you and your husband. We are on the Sovereign.
