Hi Cass,

First, I want to thank you for taking the time to photograph this stateroom in such detail. We have two connecting cat 5B's on deck 8 and had many questions about the layout and storage etc....... which you have graciously answered so thoroughly throughout this report.

I have a few details I'm hoping you can assist with: (we've never cruised before so please bear with me)

1. Where did the small rectangular magnet with the gold disney dream lettering left of the peephole come from?

2. My girlfriend is now joining our group and bunking in our cabin. I too want her have comfortable bedding on the sofa. What are my chances of getting a second duvet for her?

3. How about a full second set of bath accessories for her?

4. It looked like your bathroom only had two full size bath towels. Is this based on the number of stateroom guests? Obviously we'll need more.

That's all for now. Thank you again for this great report.

Yay... I can't believe I missed this. How exciting for you!!! I'm glad you got to enjoy some "me" time even though it might have been hard to be away from your family. I'm enjoying the report. Congrats on being a travel agent for Disney. That's so cool!

You are awesome to get this information, Cass! I'm a little bummed by the news that Remy will not have brunch--not so much because I want to go to Remy, but because if both restaurants were open for brunch we would have a better chance at actually getting reservations. We'll only have the one day at sea, so I am sure Palo will book up super fast. Oh well, us lower class citizens will have to just make do....LOLOL!

Thanks again for the info, girlie.

Can't wait to read the rest of this trip report, as my daughter & I will be cruising on the Dream in June 2011. Gets me even more excited to read about the ship.

Hi Tammy!
Yes, we were all on that crusie together.
And our Dream date is getting closer!

Just checking in to say I am really really enjoying this so thank you for taking the time to do it. I have never been on a Disney Cruise, I have always thought why spend the time and money when I'd rather be at the parks, but one of the reasons I am really thinking of reconsidering is your report!! With all the stateroom pics especially, I feel like I was there checking everything out. I love how you even have under the bed pics! Awesome awesome awesome... can't wait for more.

Thanks!
I did see the wine tasting but there wasn't nearly as many activities on a 4-day than there were on the 7-day. I was sad that there was no "MagicQuest" or "DreamQuest" like I thought there would be!

Exactly!

I also love your door magnets!

Question for you - how tiny do you feel the balcony was? I've been on many cruises (Disney, Princess, RCL, Carnival, Costa) but they've always been inside cabins. This is my first splurge, and the balconies look so small. Are they smaller than other ships' balconies, or this this standard?

This may also sound stupid, but the balconies have those bars going across so when you're sitting is all you see the bars and you have to look around them?

That's so funny to be able to look down on the 5th floor balconies. Someone said that if they scooched their chairs all the way back the people up above couldn't see them, but I think they may be wrong on that one!

Thanks!
Hmmm, well I have only sailed DCL and RCCL and they were pretty similar with the verandah size I think. I felt the verandah was great but I didn't use it a whole lot I guess. And I agree with you, I don't think they have bigger verandahs, just pushed out further at the ships' hips!

I look forward to drooling over the rest of your pics!
Cool, well have fun in DISNEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

How clear was the picture on the "porthole"? Did it feel like you were actually looking outside?
Yup, feel the same way...the ship is the reason we sail! I didn't even get off in Nassau. The VP was like looking at a very nice, HD screen.

Now, seeing the verandahs for those rooms in your pictures we will not even do that. I am so disappointed with the clear overhang in the concierge rooms (which I was not even aware of until you posted your pics). I personally do not care for this, and my 6'7" husband would have to bend down to take in the view without the plexiglass in his way. Ugh!

So sorry your AEP tour of the ship did not happen. Surprising they allowed that many agents into the group (I think ours closed with less than 100).

Thanks for taking so many pictures! And sharing your thoughts with us!
The concierge rooms on deck 12 don't have that overhang, by the way, just on deck 11

2. My girlfriend is now joining our group and bunking in our cabin. I too want her have comfortable bedding on the sofa. What are my chances of getting a second duvet for her? Hmmm, not sure...but you can always ask your room host when you get there

3. How about a full second set of bath accessories for her? Just ask your host, I doubt it will be a problem!

4. It looked like your bathroom only had two full size bath towels. Is this based on the number of stateroom guests? Obviously we'll need more.

There were 2 more big towels below the sink but you can always ask for more

That's all for now. Thank you again for this great report.

You're welcome sistah!! Well, we only had about 2700 or so people and our table mates were able to grab some Brunch ressies when they got onboard so RUN to D Lounge or wherever they are taking ressies when you get onboard if you can't get them online!

You should see how many people decided to cruise DCL after my Live 2005 trippie Should have been a TA then and asked them all to book with me BTW, you won't regret cruising and you WILL rebook onboard....

this is not the droid you are looking for....
