Lack of 2 bedrooms is still a dissapointment!
We are a family of 6 & have always cruised in a Disney Suite on the Magic & now have booked a connecting Cat T & V for our next 2 cruises on the Fantasy!
We will try 1 of the Royals in a couple of years when our 2 oldest will both be in college in February so we will only be 4 though my DW does not like the idea!

No, there is no pool or lounge for the concierge rooms on either the Wonder or the Magic. The rooms themselves are all over the place on those ships. On the Dream and Fantasy, they are in a specific area of the ship (all together).

You can order Palo as well as from any of the rotational restaurants any and all nights. Also, there is no additional charge if you go with Palo. Of course, it is smart to tip the room service people well since they have to make three trips from Palo!

Thank you so much for sharing your review. We will be in the Roy Oct 2012 and I was wondering with the murphy beds out if the living space was still usable. You have helped greatly.

Now I am really excited.

Was it the same server all three times? Did you tip each course to make sure?

It was one server from Palo for all three courses each time. However, I did make sure beforehand by asking after the first course if that server specifically would be bringing the remainder of the food. So, I provided the tip at the end of the meal. I think that worked fine as the same server was quite enthusiastic the second time he brought us Palo on a different evening.

Can you order from Palo any night (ie no limit)? Can you do it by phone or do you have to go to the CL for the orders.

Thanks so much!

Sorry, forgot to mention that we generally needed to go through the concierge to place the order. They were more than happy to take care of it and make sure it was done correctly. So, probably a better system than calling room service directly which then has to contact Palo, etc., etc.

Great review!

Was it extremely windy on the deck when the ship was in motion?

I would not characterize it as particularly windy for the vast majority of the time we used the deck. I guess most of the faster movement on the ship is during the night going from port to port. So, it seemed fairly calm out on the deck mostly since the ship was either docked or not moving quickly at all. For example, I do not think the ship goes that fast even on the "day at sea". With that being said, it did get windy when the ship was moving reasonably fast and there was a head wind. But again, that did not happen much at all on our 5 day cruise.

Thank you SOOO much for this post. I have been looking for photos of the Murphys's since we booked the Roy for February 2012. We also had to book the adjoining suite as my in-laws are coming and the Roy can only book 5. Although the room is more than large enough to accommodate 6.

thank you again.

Thank you for taking the time to reply.

I know when we were on the Dream last Feb. it was very windy on the top decks and even on our side Veranda one of the nights.

Thank you for the review and sharing your experience.

If I win the MegaMillions, I think luxury vacations would be my indulgence whereas others might splurge on purses and shoes
But since the odds of winning the lottery aren't good, at least I feel like I got to experience it vicariously through your well articulated TR with pictures and video.

Did you got to Remy?If so, please share your experience. I hope to get ressies when we cruise.

We had intended to go to Remy on the last night of the cruise. However, our youngest was not too excited about being in the kids club from 7 until 10:30 or so on the last night. So, we scratched that part of the cruise and had Palo brought to the room. We were disappointed that we did not have the chance to do Remy on this trip although I am sure we will next time.
