It seems to be one of the larger complaints adults have with the area on the new ships. I am not sure what walls you are referring to on the Dream? Now Satelite Falls on the Fantasy ( and the same space on the Dream) was more easily kept adults only. My kids were having a fit wanting to get to me, but they couldn't. But they wouldn't come into the pool area either. I told them they just had to ask a CM...geesh!
On the Dream, to get into the Cove area from Midship, there are floor to ceiling dividers (you sort of zigzagged through them) to keep all but adults and those trying to get to their staterooms in concierge (and some of those are kids) out of that section. Yes, once past those dividers the pool wasn't separated, but you had to decide that you wanted to go through the dividers. Same on the next deck up - kids didn't just walk all the way around and look down onto the Cove pool on the Dream like they could on the Wonder. On the Wonder, there is a half wall between the walkway part of the deck and the pool, but anyone taller than 3 feet can certainly see over it, and in my case, right down the bikini top of the woman sunbathing in the lounger nearest to the walkway.

I'm just saying it didn't seem as private of an adult area to me. There are walkways between the midship areas and the forward areas (spa, basketball court, foosball and game areas), and since I walked by there 3-4 times a day, I assume most other people did too. There were always kids running up to the basketball courts from the Vibe/midship elevators, or from the pools. You could see into the Cove Cafe from deck 10 above, which wasn't an adult area, whereas on the Dream you'd have to go through the dividers and it was an adult area.
