Thanks for all the insight and photos. Interested in the extra large category 9A's forward NOT designated as handicap. Any idea what the story is with 7006/7504 and 8006/8504?

Another thing ...are the lower level concierge balconies,the ones that form part of the over-the-sea curved area on the sides (at the front of the ship), semi enclosed ?
They look like they have a perspex roof over them - and do you think their extended balcony areas will make the rooms dark inside (have also though about the same issue for the large conceirge balcony right at the front of the ship, ie the one between the royal suites.

We are booked in aft 6X90 connecting to 6X92, I put an X since I know they are aft and know it is 90 and 92 but really don't know what number comes after the first 6, maybe 6 maybe 1.
Can anyone PLEASE tell me where is this deck?
Is it right above Mickey? I can't tell which rooms they are although I know one of them is next to the "gray" space that is now a door (I think) that we have all been discussing.
Do I have a partially blocked view?
Thank you VERY much!

Deck 6 is the outermost deck. Deck 5 is right above Mickey. Cabin 6192 is the outermost aft deck in the middle. The obstruction might be the flagpole/antenna thing. I would say deck 6 is better than 7. Deck seven is terraced back quite a bit and when you look down you will see deck 6. When you look down from deck 6 you will see the mickey and the water below. Just my guess. We are booked in 6192 on the Fantasy.

When you look at Deck 6 aft 6190 looks like there is anohter "fence" rounded going inside from the balcony, possibly to keep people away from the flagpole?
I hope that flag doesn't whip around all night, I am a light sleeper that likes to keep the balcony door open...hhhmmmm......

There is a clear plexiglass railing that is vertical around the back of the boat. Then there is the more decorative slanted railing that is easily visible. The inner railing is necessary because children could easily climb the slanted railing and would not hold anyone on the boat. Scissors would take care of the flag. Just Kidding!

Some other things I noticed:
The foreward corner cabins have one porthole that is salnted toward the sky. Not a great veiw for me.

The aft double porthole cabins also slant up toward the sky and have a ledge and railing impeding any veiw you might get.

I love looking out my porthole and seeing the water down below. It seems the only perfect place to do this is the deck 2 porthole cabins. But the question is how big are thise portholes and are there 1 or 2?

That's what it looks like, to keep people from the flagpole.
On the Magic and Wonder, access to the flagpole is on Deck 5 aft...another one of those areas that are "grey". There is a crew stateroom down there, with a nice sized balcony. Years ago, I'd been told it was the Cruise Director's room, but on my last cruise, I had the HC room just above it, and it wasn't the CD's room. A few of the CM's had a party out there one night.

Anyway.....point being.....and this will make you feel somewhat better....the grey area on the back of the Dream, where there is just a door going outside....that will be a crew area where they can go put the flag up in the morning and put it back down. So yes, they do take it down every night.

And yes.....so far, they have not added the balcony dividers...probably because it's easier for the workmen to paint, etc, and go back and forth, without having to go through the staterooms to do it.

Only yet another "guess" but I imagine that the divider will go up far enough that you will never be disturbed. DCL wouldn't do that to anyone.

Guaranteed, however they work it, you'll probably never see the person, and they will take it down at night. I think there's some kind of law that they have to do that...take it down.

Look at the stateroom directly behind the flagpole aft. (#6192) Do you think that would be a great verandah or a terrible one?
