I couldn't find them the last time I searched, but there are some pics somewhere of 6690. It has an AMAZING extended verandah.

Cat. 6B - Cabins 6182 & 6184

Any experience being in the back of the ship? Worried about the vibrations from the engines. Anyone know anything about these cabins or have any insight. They say in the description that one has a navigators balcony and the other could have white walls, but from the pictures, it doesn't seem to be the case. Thoughts???

Does anyone know anything about these cabins? I am concerned about vibrations from the engines being in the back of the ship. Also, it says that one is a navigators balcony and the other has white walls - but from the pictures this doesn't seem to be the case? Thoughts?????

I assume you are talking about the Dream or Fantasy since those numbers aren't on the old ships? If so, both of 6182 amd 6184 are 6B rooms that connect to each other, and while both are classified as having a metal walled verandah, the solid metal part is only about shin high, with railing and plexiglass above.

I haven't stayed aft on the Dream, but have stayed aft on the Magic several times (and we'll be aft on Deck 8 for the Fantasy MV cruise). Our experience was there was significant vibrations only when they reversed the engines in preparation for the 180 degree turn before docking (which was generally very early in the morning) but other than that, it was just a nice "butt wiggle" that was actually pretty soothing when sleeping.

We are in 6192 on for the Feb 19th cruise. I have seen some pictures of the room next door on a couple of different threads. It is basically the same room. Sorry, but I don't have them saved. From what I could see, it will be just like a standard deluxe ocean view with balcony, but the balcony is about 10 feet deep. There seemed to be ehough room for a couple of lounger chairs out there at least.
The only thing to note is that the pole that they fly the ship's flag on is attached at your balcony. It only flies when you are in port, and according to stateroom reviews I have read it sometimes flops over onto the balcony and can be aloud on a windy day. Most people said it was not a significant bother, and that their kids liked having it there.

I found the thread with pictures of 6192 linked in the first post. It is here:

http://www.disboards.com/showthread....2669508&page=2

I think this links to the second page, but there are links to a photobucket from another cruiser on page one that has GREAT picsof the balcony. I had forgotten that it was wider than the other aft balconies as well because of the linen clostes. I plan on asking the room steward if we can get lounge chairs out there. I don't count on it, but figure it is worth a shot as some of the upper deck aft rooms have them.

ETA: I dug a little further via google and a search of "disney dream cabin 6192" turned up a slide show showing a table 2 regular chairs and 2 lounge type chairs on this balcony. It had pictures of a couple in it so I am not posting a link but they commented on it in the caption to the pictue. They are not like the pool loungers, but seem to lean back and it would appear you can put your feet up as well. This is different from the pictures in the link.

Now that we've had our first detailed look at the Dream, there are some things that we can confirm.

First, the 9A corner rooms at the back of the ship appear to have 2 medium-sized porthole windows instead of 1 large porthole! (rooms 5186, 5686, 6186, 6686)

The gray area that breaks up the rooms on Deck 5 aft is a hallway leading to a door that opens out onto a larger than normal verandah area. We saw good pictures of the door when it was opened the first night, but it is unclear whether the space is open across the various verandah rooms next to it, or whether it is separated off. (rooms 5188, 5190, 5192 and 5688)

While there does not appear to be any downgrading of rooms at the moment to create "secret verandah rooms" as on the current ships, there definitely appears to be some obstructions to the verandahs at the back, that may lead to some reclassification if enough people complain about the obstructions. Rooms 7668 and 7170 (cat 5C) appear to have the most obstruction from the pictures, but 9152/9652 (5A), 8164/8662 (5B), 6164/6664 (5D) all have some obstruction overhead as on the current ships (though the deck 6 ones looks really slight.) In addition, because of the rounded detailing, rooms 9164, 9664, 8176, 8674, 7182, 7680, 6178, 6678, 5180 and 5680 all have some obstructions to the verandah as well, but they are all advertised as metal walled verandahs so probably no adjustment there.


There are also obstructions on the verandah rooms by the forward portholes as well. If you look at the following picture, rooms 5524/5024, 7520/7022, 8520/8022, and 9512/9012 all seem to have some obstruction to the verandah, though some is quite slight. Anyone who books 5024 or 5524 should really complain, since the verandah is seriously obstructed, and that verandah is not extended out as the rest of the 5E verandahs ended up being.


The accessible Cat 4B rooms on Deck 8 (8090/8588 and 8092/8590) appear to have double sized verandahs. When you look at a picture of the side of the ship, the is a blank where it appears like a room is missing, until you line up the deck plan and see the two accessible rooms there. This also seems to hold for the accessible room 5552, which is the last verandah room on the left on the picture above. Assume it will hold true for the accessible rooms on the port side of the ship as well, on decks 8 and 6.


For those who have asked for it, here's a new indexed picture of the starboard aft part of the Dream:


And the forward part!


Here are the front facing rooms!


Not labeled, but this shows a clear view of the two royal suites and suite 12000, plus the top of the ship.


And some of the concierge rooms on the port side:

Disney Dream 7504

Hi. I am booked in cabin 7504 for December 2013. My kids will be 11 and 9 at the time of the cruise.

My DH is over 6' tall and my kids are tall for their age.
I'm a petite 5'0".

I have two questions about this cabin.

1. Does it sleep 4?
2. Will the sloped ceiling be a problem for my tall DH?

THANK YOU!

If you put in 4 people in your room to quote or book, and it let you book it, then it holds at least 4.

I just booked 10524 Fantasy. Will I like Deck 10 ?

First time cruiser here.

I just booked 10524. Has anyone been bothered by the overhang on the verandah ?

If the Fantasy is like the Dream then I think the Spa will be over our room. I hope deck 11 noise wil not be an issue.

Any thoughts from people who have been on the Dream on deck 10?

The other Cat 5a available on deck 9 or all way aft so I hate to switch for those rooms.

TIA

We like deck 10!!! Any chance of upgrading to a 4d the round tub and rain shower are awesome!? Deck 6 is not bad.
