I'll be in this stateroom in April, too!!!!!! Just got our gty assignment. I wonder about the lifeboat too, but I actually prefer it over a room that would be down the hall. Last year we were in 5162, a 4E with a HUGE verandah. I absolutely loved it and would stay there again in a heartbeat, but I don't think I would enjoy being in one of the rooms right above it.

It was awkward sometimes being on the huge verandah knowing pretty much everyone on that side of the ship could see you. We saw our upstairs neighbors many times. We still had some verandah under cover, but it was kind of far back and couldn't see the horizon well if we were back there. I don't like to butt into everyone else's business, so I feel that overlooking a lifeboat will be more comfortable for me. haha. Still loved the huge verandah, and I'll miss it this time, but oh well. ;-)

though I'd still love to see a picture if anyone has one!

We were in 6542 on the Dream and were happy that there were no lifeboats beneath our verandah. We were on the starboard side and the lifeboats were all way to the right of us (at least 6-8 staterooms down). That being said, they were under the verandah, not blocking views at all.

We stayed in 6592 on the Dream back in 2011. We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived at the stateroom, because we expected to be overlooking the lifeboats. That particular room overlooks space between the lifeboats, so you can see straight down to the water.

Enjoy!

Have you seen this photo? http://i160.photobucket.com/albums/t...A/7012f594.jpg

So is this photo incorrect to where your room was located?

If so this is bad, as I always reference these photos to all.

TIA

Now I am doubting my memory - regardless, it is a great stateroom, both looking up and looking down. It was our first time on the Dream. I submitted a stateroom report, but I don't believe it was ever published.

White walls are only on the Magic and Wonder. Not the Dream or Fantasy.

The most you would get on the Fantasy is a shin-high edge that will not block any views.
