What a great thread, and what a great resource in HallsofVA!!

Our stateroom is pretty straight forward...it is 12000, smack dab in the middle of the Royal Suites. I am a bit nervous about the location regarding motion sickness for me, but I bet the view will make it worth it. But since this in the only time we will ever sail concierge (unless I hit a lottery jackpot), this thread has be amazing to help us pick a great room on future Dream cruises! We had our Magic favorite (6632) and are ready to have a home-base room on the Dream or Fantasy! Thanks for all the great questions and answers

Very smart move by RC if you ask me. Especially since you can't launch the pictures without seeing their ad, and having other cruise ads showing on the side of the screen while you're looking at the Disney pictures.

Someone pointed out on the other post that the USA Today captions actually show the wrong date of the float-out, saying it was 10/24 instead of 10/30. So much for their on-line fact checker!!

I wonder what they think about all these hits from the DIS?

Sarah - Anything in particular you want to know? You can see its outside wall in the aft photos such as the one below. Deck 7 is three up from the bottom. 7689 is behind the white wall to the left of the verandah room on the right side of Deck 7, which is 7688. 7690 is the third verandah room in the middle of Deck 7, and is on the other side of your room.

Why they went to the trouble of putting an inside room in those spots is beyond me, unless something prevented then from including the split bath, thus they couldn't make it any more than a Cat 11. Seems they could have stuck one of the medium size Cat 9 portholes back there without too much trouble and still kept some symmetry to the ship.

Finally figured it out - labeled picture!

I had labeled a picture of the rear part of the dream with all the stateroom numbers, but I did it in Visio and struggled to get it into a jpg format to upload to this site. After many attempts, I finally did it!

Here is my picture for all you aft room lovers! (I made it large so you can see all the labels!) I also went back and updated my other posts with this picture as relevant.

(Customer feedback is what led to the downgrading of the secret verandah and SPH rooms on the existing ships, I've heard.)

Assume you know where your room is, but it's the first verandah on the right next to the portholes on Deck 5.

That was what I was afraid of. I asked DCL before booking if that room was obstucted like the secret verandahs on the Wonder. I was told no that it did not have any obstructions. Do I complain now or during the cruise? Thanks for the info.

See if you can choose a different stateroom now within the same category.

You can try complaining now, or try switching rooms if possible. If there are rooms available in that category, but the price has increased, I assume you can still switch rooms at no cost impact. If you had specific discussions with DCL, and asked this question in particular, it may be good for you to go back to them as challenge the information previously provided, now that you see the pictures.

I guess I'm missing it, which part is the verandah?

I'm horrible at this but your posts have been really interesting!

Look at the picture below. In the bottom left corner you see a little spot of deck, with a white edge around it that looks a little bit like a toilet paper holder on this small picture. That is actually the verandah of the 5E room 5052. This is one of the first shots we've had taken from above, where you can see that they've extended the floor of the verandah out over the tops of the lifeboat bumpouts. They have not yet installed the railings for those verandahs, on either side of the ship, so we don't know exactly where they are going to go, but from the looks of the flooring, I think they may extend them all the way out over the lifeboat covers. Otherwise, the folks in those rooms won't have any view other than out and up.



If you look at the picture below, you can get a better sense of what this space looks like from the side (granted this is the other side of the ship.) The area above the little yellow boat is the area we are talking about. It's hard to get a sense from the side how deep that space is, until you look at it from above, as in the other shot, or from the side, when you see that the Dream has some nice wide hips to her. The space above the boat on this side of the ship is actually the accessible room 5552, so it is twice as wide as the room on the other side that the other poster was asking about, 5052.

Can you show me where my home would be? My kids keeps asking me "mom, which one? mom which one?" and I have no ideas which one it is. The number is 7058. Is it a good room? Thanks.
