Help me choose a Category 6A on the Dream!

We are thinking of taking a B2B next fall and want to try a cabin with a balcony. This will be our first time with a balcony so I want to choose the best one. I can get either 10158 or 9672. TIA.

I would take 10158....corner room, at least no one next to you on one side. Balcony will be longer than 9672, if not as deep. But it is still deeper than a balcony on starboard or port.
The room itself also looks to be a bit wider than 9672 and it's not a connecting like 9672.
Definitely, I'd go with 10158.

Will there be any issues with a cabin on that deck? Will the people on top of you be able to look down on you?

We'll be in 9674 for the Maiden voyage. We chose it because we wanted a quiet, non-connecting room. Watch for trip reports

Take a look at the first picture on this page below. Because the overhang above you goes out a ways, and because of the angle of your balcony railing, no one will be able to look down. Especially if you have the corner room 10158.

We booked 9672. Unfortunately by the time I decided (which was only the next day) cabin 10158 was already booked. We definitely want to stay in the same cabin for both cruises so I am just happy we are able to do that. Besides 9672 looks like it has an extended balcony so I am sure it is going to be awesome. Thanks everyone.

Do these cabins have solid white wall verandahs? My confirmation says they do but I remember reading on here they don't.

Look at the picture in the link mentioned above. You'll see that the aft verandah metal walls on the dream only come up to shin or knee height.

Hi Bunny, my name is Chandra and I was just reading some of your posts about the Dream. We are booked in room 9672 for the holiday cruise . How was the verandah in that room? Was it a solid white wall or are you able to sit and enjoy the view? Any info would be great. And any tips would be great too. This is not our 1st Disney Cruise but the lastone was along time ago . Thanks again for your time.

My fiancée and I are booked in 9664, which is a 6A. Reports are that it has an "obstructed verandah", due in part to it being right next to the porthole rooms. So far Disney hasn't adjusted how much we paid for the room, but many people expect Disney to start charging less for these rooms due to the obstruction.

A couple people have reported getting a stateroom credit, but I think that may be hit or miss. May be worth trying to book one of those rooms, if they're available.

Ours (7680) was partially obstructed. No onboard credit or reduction, but we lived with it, and I added my displeasure to the comment card.
