I own the Sigma 10-20mm wide angle lens, but I broke that before my honeymoon. So while that was in the shop, I rented the Tokina 10-17mm Fisheye. I LOVED it! I really want a fisheye now, even in addition to my wide angle. On my flickr you can see a ton of pictures around WDW and the Dream that I used the Fisheye for.

Which brings up the fact that renting specialty lenses for vacations is the best idea. Give it a try!

Huh? Never heard of a cat 4 like that. Has anyone else? The closest thing I've heard to this is one of the 8A rooms that is like a mini suite because of the partial wall between the bedroom and the sitting area, but it only accommodates no more than 3 people.

the cat 4 has the extra room past the couch were the murphy bed would be before the verandah, just like the 8d, 8c, 8b rooms.

There is a bed in the sleeping area, and the single flip couch bed in the other room. I confirmed this by searching for rooms on the DCL website, and these rooms consistely show when you search for 3 people, but don't show when you search for 4 people.

The other 8A layout we've seen is the one with the single double-wide room with the support pole in the middle on Deck 6. When I search for rooms on the DCL website, rooms 6514, 6016 and 5018 appear as available to book for 4 people. I'd assume that 5518 would be the same, but unsure.

We've been told that no 8A rooms sleep 5.
Just needed to bookmark this info. Right now we are booked in 9174 & 9176, but I really like the look of these, too!

Here's a link to a recent thread on the aft cabins.
http://www.disboards.com/showthread....7#post44824977

Some people love them for the size and the large balcony. Others hate them because of the vibrations from the thrusters. It's all a personal choice. I love them personally. Nearly all of my Disney cruises past and upcoming have been aft. I like the space, the large wrap around balconies of the corner aft cabins on all the ships. They also tend to have less foot traffic, and be convenient to less busy elevators.

Yes, that thread is what prompted me to look again! I think I'll go with my initial choice - the pros will hopefully outweigh the vibrations!

Also I think that the majority of people who complained about the worst vibrations were on the lower decks.

Funny you should mention that. I do rent lenses on occasion and that's an excellent idea for our Fantasy cruise in September. This way I can photograph the ship to my heart's content. Thanks for the suggestion.

We have a wonderful cuise scheduled in November on the beautiful Dream. This will be our first time on the Dream. We will have room 6070. I dont see much on the rooms on that level. Anybody have any experience with that floor?

In 2010 we were on the Wonder in room 7070 and it was great, but I know the Dream is a bigger ship so I dont know if that room will be just as nice.

Any input will be welcome.

This is not an obstructed veranda, however there is one deck between your room and the lifeboats. So if you walk to rail and look down you will see the top of the lifeboat 16 feet down, but so do 3/4 of the cabins on board. You can see the mirror image of your cabin by looking on the first page in this thread, and look for 7632. HTH

Do I see a pattern in your cabin #'s?
Well both cabins do/did/will have you sailing forward while sleeping. This is directly over the life boat, some don't like it. Some even mentioned, if conditions were just right, a orange/yellow hue color would cast into room if drapes were open, from sun reflecting off top of lifeboat. However, in an emergency you could just jump down of the life boat. See mirror image cabin on first page 6568. HTH
