The TA booked 2 staterooms on the 3/23/13 sailing of the Fantasy and then booked my Brother and SIL on the 3/23/13 sailing of the Magic. My SIL's booking receipt said Fantasy but the paid in full receipt said Magic!!! It was discovered on the paid in full date... prices had gone up substantially... the TA finally did the right thing and paid the difference but they were forced to get a GTY room and waitlisted for the same dining time as the rest of us. Needless to say... it's been stressful trying to get it all worked out. Disney execs took care of the final details and I'm hoping there is some extra pixie dust spread their way during the cruise!!!

Wow, I'm sorry. FWIW, deck 2 rooms are not any "better" or "worse" than rooms on other decks except for the category. We sailed in an inside for our honeymoon and loved it! I'd be delighted for a room on deck 2, especially for super easy access on port days, both for getting off and getting on. There's also less traffic, so it's nice and quiet. Hopefully the dining will work out!

We have sailed all four ships and Deck 2 (Oceanview rooms) is our favorite on all of them. We especially love deck 2 on the Dream and Fantasy. We have 4 more cruises booked on the Fantasy, all on deck 2.

We have not had issues of noise and find it very convenient on the newer ships. It has great proximity to the restaurants and you hardly ever have to wait for an elevator to go up to the top decks.


I don't believe anyone would be disappointed with a stateroom on deck 2.

LOVE Deck 2!! Since our very first DCL Cruise on the WONDER in 2007, we have ALWAYS booked a stateroom on Deck 2! DH and I have sailed on all four ships. The only difference is that the Deluxe Outside Staterooms on the WONDER and the MAGIC are larger than the ones on the DREAM and the FANTASY. You really don't notice it that much though. Porthole windows are flat on the WONDER & MAGIC, but indented on the DREAM and FANTASY with enough room to lean in and watch the ocean!

We've actually been dealing directly with DCL higher ups at this point and not our TA. The wonderful woman handling the case said there are over 1000 notations in the file as of now. The TA blamed Disney and Disney blamed the TA. If the TA had called with the news that it was being handled and not to worry, I'd still be dealing with her. However, her first call said... "Good news and bad news... there is room on the ship, they will lose their current Deck 6 assignment and they have to be waitlisted to get onto the same dining time as the rest of the family and ... oh.... yeah.... it's $1700 more. How would YOU like to pay for that?" I didn't answer that question very nicely. Disney ended up allowing the price to revert back to the booking "mistake" date so it was only $600 more and the TA agreed to pay it. I have been told that the TA had to have made the error when she booked us. DCL came through though and at least they have a mid-ship room (SIL get's sea sick forward or aft) and after reading all these posts I'm thrilled with the location and can't wait for them to be happy too!!! My Brother and SIL know NOTHING of this... and they won't until dinner on the last night of our sailing... we'll have a few drinks and a LOT of laughs about all the drama and how it got resolved!!

We love Deck 2! We've been on Deck 2 on the Dream (inside and outside), Magic (outside) and Wonder (outside). We have upcoming reservations on the Wonder (Deck 2 inside) and Fantasy (Deck 2 outside). This is our preferred location for convenience, noise level, and price. Never any issues.

How is the port hole size? I know they are a little bigger on the higher decks, but the ones on deck two look like a really nice size. I've sailed on the Magic on deck 2 and also deck 5 and 6 with ocean views, don't remember much difference in the port hole size. Just curious as to what to expect when we get on board next week.

Big enough that my then 9 year old daughter climbed up in ours last summer everyday to lie down and read her book. At one point my 18 year old son even got up there to try to lay down, though his legs didn't fit so well. The windows remind me of the ones on deck 3 where you often see kids sitting on them just off the atrium.

Oh very nice! I'm very sure we'll love the state room and I've very much enjoyed the ocean view rooms, even better than a veranda room, not that I would pass one up! And I do like the how easy it is to get the venues at the heart of the ship! Can't beat stumbling out of bed and going just down the hall for breakfast!

We also enjoyed deck 2-no worries. For some reason I thought if they linked you for dining they would automatically be able to switch to your time.
