Cool! Yes, I loved our location....I would also easily stay mid-ship because of the convenience...not sure if I would stay aft though

Can't wait to hear more. We have a B2B in October on the Dream and are trying to get as much info on her as possible. You TR I know will have a lot of good info to assist in our planning. Can't wait to read more.
Hey Jeff Yes, I am hoping this trip report will help others in planning their trips...being so new, there's not a lot of info out there so I took in as much as possible in order to share with others You and S and L are gonna LOVE it, I just know it!!!

Preludes is the little bar just outside of the theatre...same as on the Magic...where they sell drinks and popcorn and other snacks

I took pics of the cabin that I will try to upload today or tomorrow. 8504 was totally different and seemed to have much more space then the 6504. Once you see my pics you will see the space difference and other things that are different.

Keep posting and can't wait to read and see more!!!

Hi MJ! It was great to meet you! I wish it was at another time though when we could have chatted some more! I would LOVE to see your pics of 8504 Thanks for reading

Glad to see you had some fun, sorry you missed Rob and Kira so much, but I totally get it. I feel the same about J.

Waiting for more...you're amusing a sickie , thanks for giving me something to do!
Yeah, the verandah rooms are really nice and quite roomy. The standard inside ones are a tad bit small as you can see with that Virtual Porthole room but compared to some of the photos you took of the hotels you have stayed in, you would be rather comfortable in an outside room

Hope you feel better soon Heather, need to come visit soon!

Two rooms for 6 people isn't so bad! Not sure if I would want 4 in them though Might be a tight squeeze especially with the bigger kids

I didn't think I would ever be on her and I wanted to know all about her so I totally understand!

Question regarding the inside cabins with the virtual porthole, it looks like the "porthole" is above the bed straight ahead as you walk in. Is the picture of what you would be looking at across the ship or behind you if you turned around?
Glad you brought that up because I meant to mention it....that porthole was facing aft and it did indeed have an aft view

Loving your report Cass! Did the concierge on deck 11 have the gate as well or will those concierge guests be able to participate in FE?

Thank you so much for your trip report! Five weeks to sailing for us ~ cruise casual every night? I thought there was supposed to be a "semi-formal" but didn't notice it on the navigators ...

And to finish out my Staterooms part of the report...here's two quick pics I snapped as I was walking by



Thanks for posting these photos! I am in room 8502 on the 8/7/2011 sailing and my TA had told me that there was a privacy curtain in the room but from your pics it looks like there isn't one. Can you confirm this?

Great trip report! Thanks so much for all these great details. I am a planner, and I love the pictures! Getting more and more excited for our first cruise in July. I have a dumb question about the navigators. Do they give you all the navigators for the whole cruise all in one folder at the beginning of the cruise or do you get them each day? Do I have to go somewhere to get them or are they delivered? I know it's a silly question, but you are so detailed, I figured you could help me with it. Thanks so much and so glad you got to do this trip!
