I guess as many as will fit. I am sure 15 to 20 would easily be able to hang out based on the amount of furniture.

I'll apologize in advance if this question is taboo, but I'm genuinely curious... how much does a suite like this cost??? I can see the Cat T and Vs on the DCL website, but don't see these suites listed. We're considering indulging in one of these in 2013/2014 and booking when we're on the Fantasy next Sept.

Hi,

I good rule of thumb is around 2-2.5K per night during low season (Sept/Oct) to around 4K per night during high season (summer, holidays). The older ships tend to be less expensive as well. I think I noticed recently low season rates on either the Wonder/Magic around 1.5K per night. Oh, my numbers are based on a family of two adults and two kids.

If it is a taboo it shouldn't be. The prices are listed when the rooms are available.... We are in the Roy Suite in February 2012 (the one right next door to Walt). There will be 5 of us. Total cost $9787.00. When we originally booked we could not locate it online either. So we called the travel agent we used several years ago when we first cruised. She was able to locate it for us.

We have a friend who went on Dream with his family and they were upgraded to this suite-he said that he would have such a hard time with staying in a "regular" room after this. He said it was unbelievable. This is also the same cruise that someone in his family also won $4000 playing bingo!!! Can you imagine??

Thanks for the extra pics, they are gorgeous. The TV in the bathroom mirror is hard to believe Wow, what will they think of next! My husband and I can't wait to sail next September on the Fantasy. They are going to have to drag me out kicking and holding onto the railing to get me out of this suite

If I won that much I'd immediately book another cruise

Thank you for posting the pictures and video I love the idea of a hottub on the balcony I expect you could stay in the suite all day

Is there food available all day in the concierge lounge or only at certain times?

I think food was basically available at all times the lounge is open. There might be a few gaps when they are switching items out (i.e. the time between breakfast and lunch). But, yes, basically there is food there all the time.

I just came back as well and I just wanted to add that all the staff was excellent and would agree that Jose and Julia seemed to make my family really at home.I did learn that Julia was on board when the Dream first set sail at sea and she informed me that she would be on board the Fantasy as well.
