I hear the rules are changing on this one again and now you cannot request it. There are apparently some features of the stateroom that do not meet accessibility standards so they aren't selling it as a straight HA.

Very excited I have an excellent TA who worked with DCL to get us this stateroom before they went back to not allowing requests. A good TA (with an excellent relationship with DCL) makes all the difference in the World!

This cabin also has the veranda outer skin riser panels on the aft side like in post #1496. Have you seen photos from the balcony looking out showing the overhang of deck 11? Also some mention foot and chair sound from the deck above. Some say the noise is disturbing, others don't notice any.

These cabins are not completely accessible and do Not meet the full requirements for HA which why they are not listed as such, so NO you cannot be bumped from these rooms if you request and get either of them. I talk from personal experience and having spoken with quite a few of the DCL supervisors, prior to these cabins being upgraded from a 6A to a 5E category. If they were going to change their status to HA I'm sure this would have been done 11 months ago. But anything can change.

It is in the the next to last one, the aerial.) You can see this skin at the top between the glass sections. Those panels eventually were installed all thee way down. Some people like the outer skin. Some feel it adds privacy and protection. Other dislike the outer vertical risers.

Video, look @ 2:10;http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iN7ZD3YGadg

I have a link to those skin veranda photos somewhere. I'll look.

I just checked the first page of this thread looking for info on CAT 4E rooms
(sleeps 5, Deck 5, Oversized Verandahs) Can anyone link me to post regarding these rooms? I am having a hard time picking Cat 4E,4B, or 4C. Would love post commenting on pros cons of these CATS. I need a room that sleeps 5! Thanks for all your help in advance!

Just a quick note, room 8184 (aft corner, huge balcony) is now a 5E stateroom, not a 6A. We just came off the dream and when I went to look at rebooking, it was designated as a 5E.

Great thread!

Looking to book Jan 2014 on the dream Cat 4B (Deck 8) Do the AC rooms have an oversized verandah?! Any obstructed area on those rooms ? or any rooms on deck 8 with an outside verandah have obstructed views?! just want to make sure i do not have anything blocking our view on our balcony!

This thread was started prior to the Dream's first cruise, then updated after the first few cruises. I would not expect the OP to go back and edit every post on this thread, even if she was able to do that. There is a thread with all of the changes that were done with stateroom categories listed.

ETA: Did a quick search for "reclass" and this thread lists all of the staterooms that have been changed.

A quick search for "reclass" pulled up this thread about the new 4E rooms.

Those rooms have been reclassified since this thread was started. Look at 5E on this thread & you'll find what you are looking for.
