We have this room booked for October. Any experiences on this room? Are the kids clubs too loud? TIA!

I have this room booked for February of 2013 on the Fantasy. I've read great reviews of this room on the Dream that say the huge verandah is fantastic and they couldn't hear any noise from the kids clubs next door or the night clubs below. I hope the same is true on the Fantasy. Definitely interested in any first hand reports.

I just left this wonderful stateroom on the Fantasy about 8 hours ago. It was SO sad! The stateroom was as close to perfect as we've ever had. HUGE veranda with two lounge chairs, two regular chairs and a side table. It measured about 14 by 20. The room was the last one on a "dead end" hallway and was very quiet. Let me know if you have any specific questions and I'll answer while the memories are fresh...you'll love the stateroom.

I don't suppose you have any pictures, particularly of the verandah? The closest I've seen are pics of 5150 on the Dream.

It looks like you would go back through the aft elevator section to get to the kids clubs, correct?

Yes, I have pictures of the verandah! Just got home last night around midnight...a horrible traffic mess coming north from FL!!!

To get to the kids clubs, we simply crossed through the area where the aft elevators and stairs were to port side....then turned right and headed to the clubs...quick and very easy!

I'll try to post pictures as soon as possible. Trust me, though, you won't be disappointed!!!

Excellent, thanks!

Were you ever able to hear or feel any vibrations from the night clubs below or from the propellers or thrusters? I've heard that can be a problem with some of the aft staterooms, but this ones farther forward than most.

DH mentioned some vibration of the boat, but honestly I didn't notice it much. We heard absolutely NO noise of any kind from the nightclubs or from the kids' clubs. When you step just outside the cabin and look to the right, that is a crew door. Behind that door you can hear kids from time to time, apparently from the kids' clubs...but we never heard them when inside the cabin and it was never bothersome at all. I need to figure out how to post pictures here...just to let you know there are two loungers, two regular chairs, and a side table on the verandah and still lots and lots of open space!

Thanks! I'd love to see as many pictures of the stateroom and verandah as possible. If you could also take some pictures of the hallway leading up to the room and its proximity to the aft elevator area, that would be amazing.

Have a wonderful cruise!

Sounds like you had a great time! I tried to send you a message... Not sure if it went though.

I am dying to see your pics! I am ready to book a room on the Fantasy for next April, and I am seriously considering this room.

I'm back only five days now and looking to book another cruise! Lol.

Thanks you!

From elevator area looking down hall towards stateroom - it's the last door on the right.

From stateroom door looking towards elevator area (if you look at the carpet, the opening from the hallway to the elevators is just after the open blue area).

I didn't take many pictures this trip! Most are just scenery, but I did upload the ones of our towel critters, cabana, and a few others:

It's not large enough to have a Murphy bed :(. But we had 5150 on the Fantasy, which is the same room on the opposite side of the ship. The room is nice, but the verandah is awesome! We were totally spoiled by the 4x size verandah!!

Wow! That balcony is HUGE!! Do you know what other rooms have that size????? Is it a certain deck or position on the boat? We are in room 6540 and wondering how my balcony will compare in size to that one!

The balconies on these two particular rooms are extra wide because there is a crew space next to them and the balcony extends in front of that space. Plus the balcony is double the depth, as all the rooms of that category on deck 5 are. So I don't think there are any other rooms that meet those specific criteria. But I do know some of the 5E balconies are quite large. And the HA rooms can also have long balconies, but I don't know which ones :)

We were just in this room on our October 27- November 3 cruise. It was great, close to everything with a huge balcony. I did just post a room report.

Here it is:
This room is at the end of a hallway beside the kids club. It was noisy in the hall outside of the room, but once in the room it was quiet. It is close to the kids clubs, adult area and restaurants, and a quick ride up to Cabana's. The extended verandah is huge.

The room has a queen, sofa bed and a pull down bunk. I liked the room and think it is a great choice if you want a large balcony. It didn't bother me with the other verandah's looking down there is plenty of privacy still. One thing to consider about all the extended verandah's is in windy conditions, (we sailed at the end of hurricane Sandy), they open the privacy panels for safety reasons, so your balcony isn't private and anyone in those rooms could walk between verandah's.

I think we prefer the larger room to the larger balcony and will go with a Deluxe Family room next time. We don't spend that much time on the balcony. If only we could get one in this location because it was perfect!

Here are some photos of the balcony

So, you couldn't hear the kids club once in your room? Also, did it feel you were looking at lifeboats to the left?

No and no. This room was great on all accounts.

Hello,

I've noticed this thread has not been updated yet. I've booked this room for June 2015 and to say the least super excited. I'm unable to view the earlier pics. Does anyone have pics to share on this room. Thanks in advance!!!

Pics on the DCL site are accurate, ignoring the balcony pic of course. ;)
Notice the floor plan too. :thumbsup2

Confirming what others have said, stateroom 5650 on the Fantasy was perfect for our family of 4. The queen size bed was very comfortable, and the kids loved the convertible sofa bed (twin size) and the pull-down bed (also twin size).

The verandah was VERY large, which gave us plenty of extra elbow room. For anyone concerned about privacy on the verandah, I can confirm that you have plenty of private space available. Basically, the amount of private space that can't be seen from above is equal to the size of the other standard verandahs. As you step out towards the rail and from underneath the overhang, you can be seen from the balcony's above. Honestly, this was never an issue for us, and it is something I am sensitive to.

In addition to the super-sized verandah, the location was wonderful. Our 7-year old twins loved the kids clubs, which were on the same deck as our room and a very short walk around the corner. This stateroom gets no foot traffic outside, as it is at the end of a hall that only has a rarely used "crew-only" door. The aft elevators were just around the corner, which conveniently put you on the doorstep of food/pool options up on deck 11.
We did not experience any noise from any of the kids clubs or activities on other decks, and only felt very small vibrations when pulling into ports.

We were so happy with our experience in the stateroom that we booked it again for our 2015 Fantasy cruise! Let me know if you have any specific questions and I'll be happy to respond.

Confirming the bathroom is a tub/shower combo? Would there be any issues storing your luggage on the verandah?
