I've been scouring the forums trying to learn about the tips/tricks/activities. We're also looking forward to seeing Atlantis during our shore day so if you have any experience with the water slide rental via CS I'd appreciate reading about it.

And speaking of tips - thanks for the post about the webcam. I'll have to show our boys the Dream leaving the port.

Good night!
I wish I could be some help here. When we did back to back cruises on the Wonder in 2010 I really wanted to goA to the Water Park at Atlantis, until I saw they wanted 150 bucks or so. No thanks. The two days we were in Nassau I just stayed on the ship. This cruise will be no different as that's the day of my friends wedding.

We are in an 8C cabin. I was checking the prices and it would only be $98 more for us to move to a 6A with a Verandah. Anyone ever had a 6A cabin? We have the same cabin we did two years ago and loved it. I would like a verandah but would hate to end up with a cabin we don't like.

Sorry I can't help you out. We only do insides cause we are not in the room except to sleep and change. Only reason we have a balcony for the WBPC is they out it on special for airline employees and it was 1100 cheaper than my inside.

We've only done inside rooms as well. Except for this cruise, we decided to go all put and we have an aft balcony room.

Oh... And happy Friday!

Only 33 more Fridays!!!

Well if this cruise is offered at the same airline discount as the WBPC than we too will upgrade. If not we will stay with our inside.

We are spoiled. Had outside cabins for our last few cruises and an extended balcony on deck 5 on Dream. Especially during the sea day, the pool decks become a sea of humanity and its nice to have a private balcony to relax on. On the last night of our 2011 cruise on Dream my wife and I sat out there on the last night after little guy went to bed, shared a bottle of wine. It was really nice.

We had an aft balcony last Oct on Carnival. It was nice, although I will never sail that ship again. This time we decided to get one of the extended aft balconies on the 9th deck. We can't wait to see it!!!!

I have a feeling that after this next cruise, it will be hard for me to convince DW to go back to an inside stateroom again. Lol

Best sleep I have ever gotten was an inside cabin on a cruise. It was so dark and quiet. Our 2011 Dream cruise was our first outside cabin. Only got it because it was the cheapest room available and it wasn't really cheap. I was told not to get used to it but I did. :-)

This upcoming WBPC is our first time with a balcony. We both have been telling ourselves not to get used to it. We feel lucky enough to be able to afford a inside. We just got lucky they offered airline employees such a great rate.

Recommended Shore excursions?

What are some of the recommended excursions for this trip?

Not sure what will be available 75 days out when we have our online booking, so just planning ahead for now.

Thank you!
