Question Disney Dream Deck 6 Aft Extended Balconies

just cancelled 3 day cruise i had booked on the Wonder for this Dec.; rebooked upon the Dream for 4 day same time in 2011 in a 6B veranndah for just a few hundred dollars more

I booked what the CM & I decided was an extended aft balconymy 1st pick on other lines. (yes, i do know about the solid wall & like the 'wake up' call/vibration when arriving in port; common to that location on a ship).

CM & I couldn't figure out what the shaded area was across from the direct aft(stern) cabins from Deck 5 to Deck 10. All have a long area on starboard side & Deck 5 seems to be missing a direct aft cabin (between cabins, while 6 has a empty cabin across from the direct aft ones).

http://www.dreamsunlimitedtravel.com...amDeckPlan.jpg

I inquired as to laundry, steward area, luggage area, etc.CM had absolutely no idea, said she only has the deck plans for reference; everything still artist renderings that she's seen.

Naturally, im 2nd guessing my selection, afraid it'll be a continually, noisy spot. We got an upgrade to a cat 10 once on the Wonder. Even though it was next to door where they offloaded the luggage, really wasn't a problem until the late the last night for an hour or so.

I did a quick search & didn't see anything here, anybody want to venture a guess?

Housekeeping supply closets? I really have no idea.

I'd like to know! We booked a cat. 6B, but its on deck 7 starboard side at the back of the ship (7684). I saw the little hallway looking grey area, but didn't even notice the stateroom missing on deck 5. Hmmmmm....

i am still contemplating room 10160 which is a similar room. I am concerned about the solid wall because my son will have to be lifted to see over it. the fact that i won't be able to see over the top while sitting out there just takes away a little for me. When i reviewed many of the category descriptions both 6A and 6B say "whitewall" verandah. I have never cruised before, but i am not sure i would like that. I am having a hard time deciding on a cabin. With all this money for just a four day cruise, i want to spend wisely

I always assumed the grey line that extends to the back of the ship between some of the aft cabins was a window, or access to the outside, like the decks on the back of the Magic (secret decks 7 & 8 for example). Seemed like there may need to be an access to the outside rather than having to go through a stateroom. That was my assumption of the lines between the aft staterooms. Can't speak to the area across from the rooms, though many guessed they were the laundry rooms.

probably right re the cabin sized being access or laundry/storage, just can't figure out what the long one is port side stretching width of 9-10 cabins on some decks.

i don't think the area direct aft on deck nine (where cabin would fit) is public access as it's connected to the larger area. Pretty sure no secret deck here as there are cabins/ver off stern/aft.

guess we wait & see

We're also waiting to find out - we are booked in 5192 on the maiden voyage - right next to what was called in another thread as the "hallway to nowhere" :-)

Also, anyone want to venture a guess as to what the grayed out area down the whole center of deck 5 aft might be???

we expect u take notes & report back

typically, the big spaces r galleys

im thinking the long narrow ones aft probably r luggage routes as they r so narrow not sure what sort of closet they'd be for stewards long as it's not where the anchor chain will be stored

I'm interested to know this too. I booked 6192 (my cabin) and the connecting cabin for my family and my mother (one tripple and one double).
I booked on points so the highest I could "afford" with my points were two
6Bs.
These cabins looked to have the biggest balconys.
I usually wouldn't book the solid wall but thought I would give it a try especially since we are using our points.
I'll just have to wait for reports letting us know. We don't sail until July 2011.

we're paying cash (do have the discount from booking a cruise onboard last sailing that i keep transfering), afraid to look & see the points required

i can't say i've ever had a solid balcony wall; i'd be happy with an OV @ this point; still happy to be sailing @ all...maybe the upgrade fairy will visit it could happen

I sucked up the extra cost and booked a 5B room today. I just don't want to have to stand to look over the verandah. Lazy or what! I can't wait!

I thought all of the indoor staterooms had a virtual porthole, but I could be wrong!

All inside staterooms on the Dream will have virtual portholes.
