It really wouldn't bother my husband as he is an officer on a ship and spends half of the year at sea, but not sure if my self and my son and daughter would be put off by it.

I have been on 8 Disney cruises and had never experienced anything like that before.

Wow, I may have unknowingly saved my group from the same experience. I was going back and forth between those two rooms or a 4B/11a on deck 8. I finally went with the 4b/11a so that if our extra person backs out, we can just keep the 4b and drop the 11a.

It was hard to give up the thought of those verandahs so hearing this makes me feel better about my decision.

Our friends had Fantasy 7194 on the April 21 Fantasy Cruise and we had the room right above (8188). The only vibration or rumbling we felt was on docking. There was no vibration on sea days for our cruise. Either we are not as sensitive to the rumbling, or the ship was running a different prop RPM is my guess as to why we had no problem with that room and wish...jen did.

On the Fantasy, there is a clearly noticeable vibration (with minimal associated noise) in the aft of the ship on ALL decks. Near the bow, large waves hitting the hull while underway reverberate through the structure but are random and their presence depends on sea state (and this only affects outboard cabins, decreasing in annoyance with the higher floors). If given a choice, mid ship is most definitely the way to go. I go to sea for a living so these issues may not be something others pick up on.

Thumbs up

We loved our aft room on the Disney Dream (9174)! It was the best part of our trip. Great views, little wind...huge deck to move around...
Yes, there was vibration, but usually only when coming into port. No big deal. We always had to wake up early anyway to be somewhere. It woke me up, but the kids were so exhausted that they would always sleep through it.

Every ship.......depending on sea conditions, wind, weather in general, water depht........RMP of the engine, ( even 1 Rpm cam make a difference).......will vibrate in different areas, but mostly aft.


This are not hotels on the ground, they are a moved living entity.

Sorry...that is part of cruising.

We were on the Dream last year in 7168 ... the first night I did not sleep at all due to the "vibrating bed". In Nassau the next day, I told our friends who were seasoned DCL'ers that if I didn't sleep THAT night, it was going to officially be my first AND LAST cruise ever.

It was only really bad that very first night, although I think I tried to consume a little more wine before bed the rest of the nights.

We are booked on the Fantasy next year in 9152 so pretty much the same area of the ship, but hoping that being 2 decks higher will make a bit of a difference for us.

Never felt a thing during docking though.

I am sure everybody has their own opinion, but I do prefer forward just becuase I like to feel I am near the front. Never even thought about the vibration issue.

Was this the first night of your cruise? Reason I ask is that some seem to post the first night they feel vibration while sailing, but subsides after that. I have one of those rooms booked for June and am now second guessing my decision which was made because of that nice big balcony.

We were in room 5166, and the vibration in the bed was horrible the first night! We decided to give it one more night before complaining because we really liked the location of our room. The vibration was fine for the rest of the cruise. But holycow that first night was a doozie.

Yes, it was the first night of our cruise and into the next day. We moved around 3:30 on our sea day. Kind of makes me wish I gave it another night, but it was so bad that first night, we just couldn't risk another night of no sleep.

Oh well, after much thought I've changed from these staterooms. Now I'm worrying about the new ones !5534 and 5536. Anyone any thoughts on these?

We were on the Dream, in stateroom 9170. I'll have to look up the location of your cabin and compare it with ours.
