We were on the Dream Nov. 8th in Cabin 9500. Amazing view from the window. However, you will want to keep the curtains closed when not dressed as an area slightly to the left and above hangs out and overlooks your window. Sleeping space for 5 with a jacknife sofa bed, ceiling drop down bunk and a murphy bed. There was just the two of us so I can't speak as to whether it would be crowded at capacity. We had plenty of room and enjoyed it very much.

we had cabin 9154 on the Dream, cat 8B for 3 of us this past June. It was wonderful! seemed like so much room for us. we did not get the drop down bed in the ceiling in our room, but did have the murphy and couch bed. Our daughter whom was 16 loved the murphy bed and had plenty of room. The window was large enough for her to stand in it! Loved the round shower too! We loved it so much, we rebooked the same cabin number but on the Fantasy for june 2014 for 4 of us!

I have some pics posted on the dis site someplace, but a direct link and i hope it works for you is http://s94.beta.photobucket.com/user...yfun1/library/ to our photobucket page with the room pics.

Enjoy!

Yes, it's awesome! We were in an 8C this past June with the 5 of us. It was roomier than I thought! And we had a porta crib set up in there all day, too.

We had 9154 and 9156 on the Fantasy (connecting rooms) for a total of 6 of us. The extra space in the family room over the standard room was well noticed, and the kids loved the murphy bed and sofa bed!

Neither room had the drop down ceiling bed.

I'd book them again in a heartbeat!

Having always had a regular verandah on the Disney ships until our last cruise a week ago. We finally tried the Cat 8 Deluxe Family Oceanview, and it was a great substitute. Lots of space, love the shower. Very satisifed, especially for a short cruise. I think I would still want a verandah for a longer cruise, so I guess we will just have to put out the extra coin for the Deluxe Family Oceanview with Verandah for those.

We had room 6676 on the Dream category 8D with four of us. We had plenty of room so I'm sure for 2 people it would be tons of space.

Yeah that's was what we were thinking. We're just going for 3 days since this is our first time ever on a cruise. I love Walt Disney World a lot, so it's even better I'm going onto a disney cruise. So thank you.
