We got cabana 6 for the 10/25 cruise. Just up in a request to be moved to #1 because it's the only one that is wheelchair accessible.

Just booked Cabana #7 for the Nov 25th, 2012 Dream sailing. #8 is still open. Which one is better?

Oh, do they include infant in the head count?

We had a perfect view of the ship from 7. From pictures I've seen, it looks like there might be a tree in the way of the view from 8?

I believe infants are counted in the headcount.

They definitely include infants HOWEVER if you have more than 6 people, they do not charge the extra $50 for the infant.

Thanks for the photos!

I just booked #9 for our 8/29 dream cruise. We booked 21 days in advance and of course they were all booked at that point. But obsessive persistence pays off. One just popped up today!

I had thought maybe the system dumped cancellations into the mix at midnight, similar to the WDW hotels. But this came up during the day, somewhere between 2am and 11am EST.

So what cabana # is considered the best? It sure looks like #7 has a great view and that #8 may have a tree in the way. I've seen #9 pics and it looks good. Which ones have the volleyball court in front of them? We plan to book one but I want to have an idea ahead of time of what number to choose (should I get so lucky as to have a choice!). I do understand that #1 is first and the 15-17 are more secluded. We have 3 little kids who will want to swim, eat, use the restroom, pelican plunge, etc. so I think being closer to the beginning numbers would be best, but also want a nice view.

We have 17 Booked for our October Cruise on the Fantasy. If you have any photos please post as I keep hearing the end ones are not as good.

Thank you for any information on 17.
