Thank you! I booked 9674. 8188 was not available. I had read reviews for 9674 that said vibrations were so bad they were seasick. One even said they had to switch rooms because vibrations were so bad.

I sleep like a rock (slept through Hurricane Hugo), but dh is a very light sleeper.

We have 9174 & 9176 & 9674 booked for Dec 15th sailing on the Fantasy
So looking forward to what my DS says is the "whole back of the ship". Booked on opening day before anyone was reporting the "vibrations". I hope it is not bad as I tend to get motion sick.

Will report back after our cruise.

Is the room larger, or just the verandah?

thanks all, we were in room 9662 an 8B on our last cruise and it was in the AFT and we had no issues with vibrations, sure we knew when we were backing into port but we all sleep so incredibly well(best sleep we have all had) My husband declared last night after much research that he wants room 8188 so I have a courtesy hold on it and I am on the phone waiting for DCL to firm it up and remove our reservation on 9764
Thanks all

You didn't say Fantasy or Dream, but either way 8188 is probably the best aft cabin on the ship. Being center aft, it is extra deep, and extra wide. In comprison, on the Fantasy, on deck nine, 9674 gets that extra width, not 9176 (but not depth). On the Dream, though connecting, 9176 I believe gets both the width and depth.

In summary, 8188 is the best choice.

I'm glad I stumbled on this thread. I'm booked in 9672 for our 3/16/14 Dream sailing. A little nervous about being aft.

We stayed on Deck 10 last time and the noise, running feet, and scooting chairs from Deck 11 was bad. I'm just not sure if this is a compromise but that's a great view!!!

I am trying to decide between the 5E and 4A room.

Wondering if the 5E rooms, which are AFT correct (?), get much sunlight? Any picture I have seen, the veranda's seem to be in shade. Would love to be able to sit out and suntan on these veranda's. Also, are people able to look over their railing and see down onto your veranda?

Thanks for the help!!

They get plenty of sun, and are only half-covered. If you are at the uncovered part, then yes, those above you can see down onto your veranda. Not sure what you have planned for doing out there, though . . .

We have 10158 on May 31 2014. Really looking forward to it. We had considered an ocean view but the price difference was marginal so we splurged. Tried to get a starboard side but they seemed to all be taken. I like having the corner though.

Good choice.

note, there is some vibration in the back. It didn't bother us, it has bothered others. Just want to make sure you are aware.

We've stayed in 10656 and been woken up by the vibration. Kids slept through it. We learned what to move and put towels under to avoid the more obnoxious noises. I also threaded a towel through the hangers and that kept them separated. Each time we woke up it was about time to get moving anyway. Pulling into CC being awakened by the vibration was a blessing as it allowed us to catch a view of a sea turtle right next to the ship.

So glad I found this thread

I booked 8188 for the Fantasy.
Had no idea it was "the" cabin to get.
Last summer cruised on the Fantasy and had room 5150, which had the double wide veranda and it extended out as well. It has now been reclassified and didn't think it was worth the price, so decided to try something different and cruise in the back of the ship, something we have never done before. So looking forward to having a large veranda again.

I too read reviews about the aft cabins and what I read was there was a problem with soot, but that the stateroom host was really good at cleaning it up each day.

We had people looking down on us also in the extended veranda we had this past summer........didn't bother us, in fact I think it made the people looking down at us more uncomfortable if we caught them looking! If we didn't want to be seen, we just sat closer to the door, not an issue at all.
