I was going off of this post for the description of the room. But when I asked the CM about it on the phone she said our room isn't listed as being HA, so I don't know what it all means. I guess we won't really know until we get there

That's because according to the original deck plans that were released by DCL, rooms 5018, 5518, 6012, 6014, 6510 & 6512 were listed as HA. When they were inspected, it was found that they did not meet the requirements is what I remember reading, so they are no longer HA. That would explain the single bathroom, and probably no tub.

LOL! Just shows what happens when you spend way too much time on the boards.

ETA: Also, those are the deck plans that I saved to my computer to use and haven't updated them.

Thanks, Lisa for switching to verandah! This Lisa, grabbed 5020 and 5022 over the weekend for only $80 more than our two connecting 8c's. Of course, now you have me thinking of connecting verandahs...hmmm...decisions!

Tracey at DU was able to book my side of the family on this cruise. This will be myself (another Lisa), DH and our 3 kids DS14, DS11, and DD7. DH and I now have 6 cruises under our belts--with more booked before this one! and kids have taken 4.

My parents are also coming along. We hooked them on a 5nt this past August on the Dream.

My sister, her DH and 3 kids, DD11, DD9 and DD7. Sister took a cruise in high school with a friend but otherwise first timers!

My brother and his family are on the fence about cost. Wanted to wait till closer to book. SHHHH! Don't tell him we booked and parents are paying the deposit. Hoping he can go. If he does, it will be himself, DW, DD7, DD5, and identical twin DS's 3. DB and DSIL did a Carnival for millenium but otherwise first timers.

So excited about all the space we'll have for the five of us in those 8a's!

We've been fortunate to sail on the dream 3x this year in a wide variety of rooms--3nt in connecting 11a's on deck 8, 5nt in one 8b, and dh and I 3 nt bday trip in different layout 9a room 8000, now categorized lower. Looking forward to another crazy room type. Hope it doesn't change on the Fantasy!

Lisa

Welcome Lisa!

I moved us to a 9A this morning

I can't believe it's so far away. I'm looking forward to our MR trip this coming Feb/March, but it's the Fantasy cruise that I'm really excited about!

Hey everyone! Just checking in after a crazy busy weekend!
Welcome, Lisa!!! My DD's will be 10, 9 and 6 on the cruise.. so lots of similar ages to your group

Too funny about you scooping up the rooms. Those portholes are SO big... and that is a really cool room layout!

WOW!!! The cheapest room on this cruise is now $6,518.40. That is in a 5A. Everything below that is still showing sold out even after deposits were due. I also checked out the 6/29/13 cruise we have a room held on and the cat 11C is $6,267.88 -- the price we have for a 9A.

So, we've only ever sailed once before. This past Feb we did the MR and it was KSF. I heard that it was sold out and that kids were at maximum level. It was crowded, but never felt overly so (except on the sea days at the Mickey pool). Obviously it didn't bother us that much as we rebooked for the exact same cruise for '12. And that one is now KSF as well! Anyway, it looks as if our Fantasy cruise will also be sold out. Should we be concerned about the newer ships sailing at capacity or do you think it'll be ok? Four thousand folks is a lot

Anyone here sailed on a full Dream sailing? How was it?

We have always cruised on sold out cruises, including the 2008 EBPC repo. That one got a little much due to some of the teens on board and their antics, but it never really felt crowded even for 15 days. We cruised KSF the past two years in January, last minute bookings, and it wasn't crowded then. The one thing we noticed the last cruise in january was the lack of parental control over thier kids in the dining room. We always have early dining and yes we know it gets loud in the dining rooms and we have kids BUT I have never witnessed some of the antics we saw then before. One 2 yo next to us threw a tantrum - and some plates - and all ended up on the floor. It was more of a "we're on the ship now, I put the kid in the seat and he will stay there or whatever while I visit with the person next to me" attitude. A tot on the other side of us was allowed to squeal/shreek repeatedly almost every time we were in the dining room...especially at the CB. Now, I totally understand the excitement kids experience. It's not about that. It was to the point where people in the DIS group who were sitting between our table and the shreeker got and left half way through the CB. My kids have never been angels, but we have always removed them from the situation if they ever did anything that bothered people around us whether it be in church or at dinner. One time is one thing, every single night was excessive. Now what was the question? Usually there are 1600-1800 kids between the ages of 3 & 12 onboard alone [announced at the final kids' show]. We were really surprised by the numbers the first few times, considering that doesn't include the tots or teens.

Hi everybody. I've stopped in a couple of times but figured it was time I chimed in. We will also be on this cruise. It will be me, DH, and DS (10 at the time of the cruise). We are so excited! Is it bad that I'm already pricing rental cars, flights and hotels?

We did! We were on the Dream June 7th-12th. It was a 5 nighter. The boat was completely sold out. We never felt it was too crowded. We went to the shows, rode the aquaduck 4-5 times, enjoyed the pool, no issues. The funny thing is 4k people and we kept running into the same 3-4 families! I'd say the most crowds we ran into were getting into the dining rooms every night and disembarkment. Even then it wasnt horrible.
