Will 6690 on Fantasy be the same as 6690 Dream?

With the new categorization that include 6690 which we have booked for August 2012 on the Fantasy I was wondering if the room would be identical to the stateroom 6690 on the Dream? I've heard great things about it, so just wondering.. Also, those who have been in that room is it a solid white wall or the plexiglass wall? We have only cruised one other time with a verandah and it was plexiglass, so not sure about the white wall verandah, anyone tell me the pros and cons of it. Thanks so much,

I know they are making some improvments to the common areas on the Fantasy but I have not heard that any of the rooms were being altered. I expect that they (the rooms) will be the same much like they are between the Wonder and the Magic.

Here's a picture of 6690's verandah. You can see the solid part of the wall only goes part way up and we didn't find that it disturbed our view at all. We loved this room - hope you enjoy it too!

I'll be in 6688 in February on the Fantasy. I hope that the balcony is just as big. That would be an awesome bonus.

We had this stateroom/verandah in May and will have it again in about 26 days. Can't Wait. We thought this stateroom was in a perfect position for us.

Hi All! So glad I found this thread! My husband, kiddoes and I (as well as my in-laws and my mom) will be cruising on the Dream in February. We will be on the 3 night Bahama itinerary. We booked 6690 because we like to be aft and liked that the verandah looks larger than the norm. We did not realize until this week that the flag may be an issue. We do not have a sea day on this itinerary so both full days will be at port, Nassau and Castaway Cay. While we plan on being off the ship some of those days our plan was to chill on the balcony some of the time. Can you shed some light as to whether the flag will be an issue? Is it loud? Does it obstruct the view? We are thinking of upgrading to another room due to this, we really want to be able to enjoy the balcony but hate to give up this room! Any feedback you can provide is greatly appreciated!

We will be in 6192 and the flag will be right in the middle of our veranda. From what I have read it is only up while in port and not really a issue! Not sure we will be out on the veranda much while in port.

King Richard, we'll be close and on the same cruise. I recognize you from the cruise meet thread.

Hello there King Richard! Please let me know what your room was like, and how much an issue the flag actually is We have booked this room for Dec 2012. (but on the Fantasy). I am dying to know if it's as bad as some people have posted, and also, photos of the verandah would be SOOO appreciated

Happy Sailing!

Thanks!

Shannon
