Exclamation Disney Dream Doesn't Have Solid Whitewall Verandahs?!?

According to this pic, it looks like the Disney Dream won't have any solid whitewall verandahs!! If they are, then they wouldn't be putting railings on the edge!! =D

From the way it looks on the DCL website I think they did get rid of the solid walls. The video os the starboard side is hard to make conclusions form but the way they have the categories set up the ones at the back are in the same categories as the ones on the sides. all this combined makes me feel as there are no solid wall verandahs.

No, according to the website, certain categories will have white walls. This is off of their website.

A Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom with Verandah is classified as Categories 5A - 5E, 6A and 6B located on Decks 5 - 10, as follows:
Category 5A: Decks 9, 10
Category 5B: Deck 8
Category 5C: Deck 7
Category 5D: Deck 6
Category 5E: Deck 5
Category 6A: Decks 8, 9, 10 (whitewall verandahs)
Category 6B: Decks 5, 6, 7 (whitewall verandahs)

Category 6B: Decks 5, 6, 7 (whitewall verandahs)
But apparently if you see the Aft video from the website, if you look closely the back has railings and not solid ones! because even on the picture above, the ones with the railings are also category 6A or 6B…

CLEARLY, they made a mistake on the website! =D Seeing is believing… (not really the concept that Disney depicts, but still )

Personally, it still looks like there are metal walled verandahs to me, though it does appear that they may be lower than they are on the current ships. What looks like the top of the metal wall part is at the same level as the bottom of the porthole in the nearby rooms. Unless DCL has stretched the portholes to the floor of those cabins, then there is still 2 feet or so of wall below the porthole, which means that the metal verandah would be at least a few feet high as well.

I concur... I don't think they have been painted yet so it looks like they aren't there.... I believe that the only plexiglass balconies are on the sides of the ship...

Look more closely at the photo. The first row of portholes at the bottom. If you look closely you can see that there is a rail going all the way across about 1/3 the way up the porthole. that is where you can get your visual height from. As you look up to the stateroom areas you can see that the port holes are the same size. as you look towards the aft of the ship.... You can see that the solid parts go up only to the height of the bottom of the portholes..... there fore what will be above that?????? Thats right half of a regular verandahs railing.... so it wont be a full plexiglass verandah but it doesn't appear to be a full solid verandah.

We can all hope and dream for plexiglass verandahs... and most will have them it just depends on the category you book.

But according to the official stateroom explanation of the Dream's Staterooms on the DCL site:

"A Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom with Verandah is classified as Categories 5A - 5E, 6A and 6B located on Decks 5 - 10, as follows:

* Category 5A: Decks 9, 10
* Category 5B: Deck 8
* Category 5C: Deck 7
* Category 5D: Deck 6
* Category 5E: Deck 5
* Category 6A: Decks 8, 9, 10 (whitewall verandahs)
* Category 6B: Decks 5, 6, 7 (whitewall verandahs) "

I totally get that but it would not be the first time the DCL website has been wrong. They might have changed after posting on the site. They could be saying it is a whitewall due to the two feet at the bottom. We won't know for sure until January. But it would appear to be half solid wall and half railing.

Might be… I see that the solid wall goes up to the bottom of the porthole, but the veranda's wall on the side, is a bit lower… I also think that the railings of the staterooms that are supposed to be solid whitewalls, are a bit higher

Talked to DCL a coulple months ago about an upgrade, and she specifically asked me if I had wanted a SOLID WALL or plexiglass, so unless the persons I talked to have it wrong as well... There will be solid walls.


And I'm not sure about this thread, is it a bad thing or good thing that there would not be any solid walls???

well when my mom reserved the cruise, they too said that we'd be having solid walls, but I guess they were basing it on the older ships… maybe this one won't have solid walls...
