Thanks for taking the time to do such a detailed TR. Look forward to all the rest of you posts.

Don't know if it's possible, but can you get any photos of the teen lounge and the tween lounge?

If you get a chance, can you please see about getting some pics of room 6016 (Cat 8A). I just changed to that room from a Cat 8C room. There's one pic of 6514 (on the right side) but doesn't show a lot. Some of us are interested in how 6016 will look, location of tv, storage, bathroom area (split or single).

Thank you.

You write the best trip reports! I'm jealous - but at least I can live vicariously through your reports. Have a fantastic time!

I have a TON of pictures of the tween and teen lounge, I will post. I took video of the teen lounge as well, did you know they even have DJ training?!?

WOW, the Dooney & Burke fiasco was mind blowing. People literally spent three or four hours of this very costly cruise standing in line for purses that will be available all year. I took a picture, I'm sure I'll offend some that might read this but I thought it was really awful...and I talked to a poor CM officer that looked frazzled, he told me that several guests in the line threatened his job and said they were going to the highest management they could get to in order to cost him his job. Over. A. Purse.

One of our table mates heard a woman talking about how she was putting them on ebay (they were limited to two per style per person, which is way too many). The woman in front of our table mate (who she did not know) had the nerve to ask her if she could take care of her "purse list" while she went to dinner, because she didn't want to be late for 6 PM dinner. Are you kidding? Our table mate did too. She got disgusted by the whole thing and left the line. I will definitely end up with one, but it will NOT be by standing in line during this precious cruise.

Things are a bit rough...service is slow, there are ghastly lines at guest services. But the crew is trying hard and have smiles on their faces despite not sleeping much, and I'm still having a blast!

I will TRY to get a pic of 8A. Not sure why those are so mysterious, lol! Seems no one can get them.

Hi Stacie
Thanks for the updates! We cruise one month from today and have TWO Cat 8a's 6510 and 6514 so I will take LOTS of pictures of every nook and cranny of the two cabins if they are still mysterious to us next month.

There have been about 4 pics of 5020/5022 posted that are 8A and have a dividing wall between the bed area and the couch area. But there is only one pic of 6514 8A that shows it as one open room with a support beam in the middle. But the desk seems smaller and is on the wall between the two portholes. Its hard to tell the layout of the rest of the room, or 6016, where the tv and rest of the storage is, if the bathroom is split or not.

Just found this TR...lovin' it so far!! Can't wait to finish reading everything. We debated on doing a cruise this summer on the Dream, but then decided to go back to WDW. Perhaps Summer 2012 when our youngest is a bit older.
