Ok HallsofVa - I call upon your stateroom guru expertise.....

We are in 9674. In the aft picture, is it the room with several people in front of it almost in the center, or is it the room to the right of it in the picture with no one in front of it? The space in the wall with no window/door is throwing me off.

Think this should be a good room? (anyone?)

So exciting to get to see our room! I already showed the kids that it was one of the two, but would be nice to know which one. (Of course, being IN it would be even better!!!)

If you're talking about the picture below, the people are standing in front of the three middle rooms, and 9674 is the right middle room behind the two guys in the white hats. The room to the right (as you look at the picture) with no one in front of it is room 9672. You should see 7 verandahs across the back of Deck 9, and your room is the 3rd from the right.

Cabanas and Palo!

Here's a picture of the outside of Cabanas (buffet restaurant on Deck 11) and Palo above it on Deck 12).

OK - finally put it together after reading every post in this thread that we're on the Fantasy with you in June 2012 --- cool - we are travelling with a guru!

My reference point in finding your room on this picture is the verandah on deck 9 with the cardboard or wood against the railing. That is the 10th verandah from the left. Your room is 18 total from the left, so I counted on 8 more rooms from that column.




My continued appreciation to andreas de for his pictures!

Thanks HallsofVA! And DUH - I knew it was 3 over, but the white wall space area threw me. Never thought to count to see that there are 7 across and that would have clued me in!

Think that's a good room (good/unobstructed view, quiet, not across from laundry or something, decent access to elevators)? What do you think about verandah? Is it going to be one of the deeper ones? I never thought about the overhang of the upper deck - think that will be a problem?

When I was first looking at the category descriptions, I knew I wanted a verandah, but wasn't sure if I wanted the to go ahead and book a verandah just for the plexiglass. So I booked the lowest verandah catagory (hoping for an upgrade!), but thought it was going to have whitewalls -- from what I'm reading/seeing, it looks like it has plexiglass - is that what you're seeing? I hope so! (Watch, it'll be my luck that I'm happy with my original room without an upgrade, and I'll get "upgraded" to one I'm not as happy with.... of course, I'd be happy with an upgrade to a suite no matter where it was! )

It looks like a pretty good room to me! Quite a pleasant surprise to see that the metal wall on the verandah is only up to shin level, versus the full length walls of the existing ships.

Here's a couple other pictures of your room where there aren't people standing in front of it! In the second picture Deck 9 is at the very top of the picture.

The main uncertainity we have at this time is whether it'll truly be a private verandah or shared with your two closest friends! Still have a deeper than normal verandah, and you're higher than the flagpole.

One potential problem we've experienced from sailing in a similar room on the current ship is people throwing trash down from the buffet restaurant above, and getting extra water on the verandah every night or morning when they wash the deck area above. Not sure if that will be a problem on the new ships or not, but could be a slight risk if the verandah isn't fully covered by the deck above.

HallsofVA - A big "Thanks" for all the information you are sharing on this thread! I have found it so interesting to see where others are booked and learn why they booked there. I could never have put the pictures and deck plans together in my head like you do. Just a note, I found it interesting also how few non-connecting rooms there were available. It was important to us since our last cruise with noisy neighbors to NOT book a connecting room this time. Can't wait 'til May!

Take a look at the pictures below. Deck 8 is the top ribbon of windows across the bottom front (Deck 7 being in the middle, and Deck 6 being the bottom row.) Mentally divide the space into 7, to represent the 7 portholes that are hidden behind the false front on each row. 8504 is the corner room and gets the first porthole on the left (as you face the ship), and 8502 is the room next to it, getting porthole #2 from the left (as you face the ship.) We are booked in 8006 which is the corner room on the right as you face the ship, and gets the 7th and last porthole. You can use the same logic to find your deck 6 room. The small picture on the right was the picture captured during construction and referenced in the other thread on page 8.
I was wondering what the view will be like out these porthole windows since they are covered by an additional "window". If anyone has traveled on a ship that had a similiar window and could let me know, I would appreciate it. Hubby wanted a front facing window so he could feel like he was behind the wheel so I am hoping he has a good view.

Yea! Thanks for sharing. I was up late last night pouring over the pictures (who needs sleep?!) Great to see some interior pics. Can't wait 'til January for the first cruisers to come back with full trip reports and pictures!

Speaking of which, did you all see the video that includes some actual inside the Dream footage?

Here's the main site that had it posted. Search on Das Disney and you should get there. At 3.38 they start showing pictures of the inside of the ship.

I didn't catch a bit of the German, but I guess Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck sounds the same in any language!

Thanks for the link!

Ok... feeling confused. HEEELP!
Haven't looked at the Dream or Fantasy yet...
Where is the best place to find out the differences between the verandah rooms?
My head is spinning-LOL
