Disney Dream 7006, 7504, 8006, 8504

Hi all... I've just booked our first DCL cruise (our first cruise ever) - on the Dream 3-day cruise just before Memorial Day 2011.

I know no one really knows what the deck plans represent since the ship hasn't sailed yet, but I'm wondering what people think of these staterooms - Cat 9A, but oddly shaped and at least on the plans, larger than the other 9As.

I booked 7006 for our cruise, and I'm very excited, but was wondering if anyone has any ideas on these rooms.

Thanks,

Ted

There have been several threads speculating on these rooms. We have 8006 booked for our cruise next year. There were some rumors that they could have two large porthole windows. But nothing confirmed as of yet!

7006

Ted,

I have booked that same room for next year on the Fantasy (which is the same as the Dream as far as I can tell). Would you mind posting how it is when you back back if we don't hear anything from anyone sooner! I noticed that there seems to be large windows in the front of the ship and am anxious to see how it is. I tried counting the portholes on the side and it seemed as if there are 7, so 7006 would be in the front. I am just guessing though.

Thanks,
Amy

This is a pretty old thread that doesn't have the latest info in it. There is a recent thread or two looking for info on these corner rooms. We haven't seen any pictures of the inside so far but we should get a report on 7504 on the MV cruise this week.

You can also are some pictures of the 7 medium, round portholes on each forward deck (only 1 per room alas) before they were covered with the ribbon of glass on pg 18 of the Special Rooms thread. I'm in an airport or I'd give you the link.

that's the room in August. I'm curious as to whether it has a privacy curtain to divide the room and whether you can see the TV from the bed.

I sure hope it has a privacy curtain! Our twin soon-to-be 5 yr olds will go to bed much earlier than us! Guess we'll find out soon enough!

So do I! Otherwise we may be changing cruises! My concern is based only on the one corner room we've seen pictures of this far, 10658. The pictures showed no privacy curtain and had the TV far from the main bed and on the same wall. Here's hoping our rooms are better!

7006!

We booked our room on Gty as well and just found out we are in room 7006. I called and there wasn't much they could tell me except it was facing the front of the ship and 'may' be slightly bigger then the same catergory room 7008, next door. We leave on 4/10/11, this is my 2nd Disney cruise and was on the Wonder 10 years ago! Would love to hear about anyone who has had this room as well!!!

There are pictures posted of room 8504, which is the sister room to 8006 and 7006 should be similar, though in reverse.

Thank you for posting ---I just booked 8504 on the Fantasy for Sept 2012. It looks like you have a generous amount more room then a normal oceanview. How was it having the bunk cloer to the parents bed and then another child on the sofa. Not my ideal set up but I love the bigger room! Any thoughts on the room and how ya liked it would be appreciated!!

I have stayed in 8504 and the cabin is very large....it reminded me of a cozy attic room...you can find the pics I posted in Timon's trip report thread from Jan 30, 2011.
