Just assigned Room #6190 on Dream--- worried about being all the way aft.

We have just been switched from guaranteed to room #6190 on the Dream for our June 7 cruise.
This is as far aft as you can get. Our verandah looks out over the ship's wake.
This is a first for us. We've always been mid-ship.
Anyone have experience being in this area? Should I be working on getting a room change?

We are in 6192 (next door to you) for our cruise. The aft balconies are HUGE!! All reports indicate that they are nice rooms, and while there is a little vibration pulling into port, it is not really bothersome. There si a whole thread on aft balcony cabims with lots of pics of different rooms. There are some of 6192 linked there.

here is that thread:

We were in 9674 for the Dream Maiden Voyage, and loved it!!! Great views, deep balcony. A long walk to the restaurants (except for Cabanas ;-) but just about everything on the Dream is a long walk

Enjoy! Lin

Aft room benefits:
1. Very quiet hallway
2. Aft elevators much less crowded
3. Larger balconies
4. Close to the drink stations on deck 11
5. Aft elevators are convenient for Oceaneer's Lab check-in on deck 5.

Enjoy!!!!

There's a review of 6190 over on the stateroom report section from a DISer who stayed in it on 2/3/11. :

Notes: Very pleasant room that sleeps 3. I felt there was plenty of storage -- lots of little shelves, drawers, hooks, etc. No pull down bunk bed, but the couch does convert to a bed each night. Love the split bathrooms. Connects to 6192 (also sleeps 3). The verandah is HUGE. Probably at least 10X10 -- and we had them open a side door to 6192 (which has an even bigger verandah.) It was our first cruise so I can't compare to another location on the ship, but we did experience a fair amount of vibration and some engine noise, especially on the first night or when turning. No other noise from the clubs or other staterooms, and it's nice to not have very much traffic in the aft. The only other caution I'd give is that when in port, the flag flown off the back whips around a lot -- can be noisy, fly into the verandah area, and sometimes blocks the view. My kids loved to catch it and throw it back out again (The flag is probably about 20 feet by 20 feet long -- also huge.) So the extremely large verandahs were wonderful, but came with the price of a large flag in your way during port stays (they take it down when sailing). It's more of an issue for room 6192, but it did affect ours a bit.

Thank you for the pro list and the stateroom report. After my cruise I'll post pics so other aft-ers can see the size and the impact of that giant flag.

Do not change your stateroom. Balcony is huge and since you back in most places the views are terrific. There was a little vibration when coming into port but it got you up so you didn't miss it. This was our first xperience at an aft cabin and i would absolutely do it again.

The flag sometimes blows into the balcony area but that is only at port and not an issue.

I love the aft cabins. You may feel some vibration but it's worth it for the absolute quiet in the area and the great verandah. I wouldn't switch if I were you!

My family & I are going on our 1st Disney cruise on May 5th on the Dream! We are in room #6190. So far, I've heard good things about the location and the balcony. I do plan on doing a trip report with pics when we get back. But, since I'm not sure how long it will take me to complete that, I will subscribe to this thread & come back & tell you what I thought about the room & the location. And I'll also post some pics for you.

We're in the same room - planned that way - for our cruise in Sept. We always sailed mid-ship starboard and were in very aft of Wonder and lived it, especially at CC since we almost always back in to the dock. Love the bigger balconies and quiet nature. Hope you enjoy and I wi look forward to seeing your pix!

Hi! We just got off of the Dream today. First of all, let me say, that ship is amazing!!! It's beautiful & there is so much for everyone to do. DH & I both thought the ship staff was even nicer than the ones you meet in WDW, if that's even possible. Anyway, on to what I'm here for: room #6190 review. I really loved our room. First, being all the way in the aft, it is so nice & quiet back there. Deck 6 is great because there's nothing on it but staterooms. The balcony is large & spacious. With the view looking out over the wake of the boat, you get the prettiest water to view. And you get more of a panoramic view of where you've been. And when you pull into port, you'll have gorgeous views from the balcony. Now, I won't lie, when you start sailing out of a port, you do feel the motors really going. But, the only time we were "rocking" was on the 1st night. I don't know if it's normally this way just out of Port Canaveral or maybe we just hit some choppy waters that night. Other than that, it was fine. I don't know if the stateroom hosts change locations or not, but ours was Ronald Serra. He was awesome. We always had great animal towels every night. And on our first night, he came in to tell us some things about the room. Well our DS, who is 3, took a liking to him & Ronald just sat there for a while talking to him & playing with him. I hope you like the room. I hope you have a wonderful trip! I'm in the process of trying to upload my photos from our trip. If you'd like to see some pics, let me know. Also, please feel free to ask me any questions!

What great information! Thank you so much for the review.
I'm glad you had such an awesome trip and enjoyed the room. I think we'll love it as well.

When you say "rocking" do you think it's enough to get the average person sick? And was this all through the first night (like sleep hours) or in the afternoon/early evening when it left PC?

Also, was this a 5-nighter? We're doing the 5 night in June.

We did the 3 night. DH & I had only cruised one other time - 7 years ago - and it was a horrible experience. The only way I could convince him to try a Disney cruise was if I booked the least amount of nights & got him a balcony. We all loved the Disney cruise! On the first night, the "rocking" was probably around 8:30, 9:00 that night. I took a Bonine & felt better. DH noticed it but never felt bad, so he was fine. I forgot to mention how convenient the aft elevators are. They aren't far from the room & were rarely busy. Please let me know if there is anything else I can help you with. I'm not gonna lie- I'm so jealous that you're doing the 5-nighter! I am already ready to go back. I started to tear up as we walked off the boat yesterday!

We did the 3-nighter on our last Disney cruise, a few years back, and loved it. You can't go wrong no matter how many days you're onboard.

I've heard the aft elevators are much less crowded, so that's another plus.
Did you have any trouble with a flag blowing onto the verandah? One trip report mentioned the wind blowing the flag around a bit.

Is the view of Castaway Cay spectacular as the Dream backs in? And do you have to get up super early to see the docking?

Was there anything you'd say is an absolute MUST to do?

Thanks for answering all these questions and I'm looking forward to your trip report!
