For those who have stayed AFT on the Dream or Fantasy...

Did you like it or wish you were more mid-ship? Did you feel really removed from most stuff/long walks - or ??

Last year on the dream i was in 6144 (aft). It was a good location (depending where you want to go) We picked midship for our next cruise b/c we're all adults and we wanted to be closer to the Adult pool areas etc. Honestly, it all depends on if you need to go forward or aft at that moment to think if your stateroom is a good location

We were closer to aft last cruise-8130 on the Dream and we loved it.. It was a quick stair climb to cabanas and the drink station..no issues for us.

We stayed in 6190 & 92 in may on the Fantasy. These rooms are the farthest you can go aft. We liked the location, less foot traffic. There was a large vibration when docking but I'd book it again, especially a verandah!

Thanks - yes I am looking at a cat 7 verandah - only $300 more than our inside - we haven't had a verandah and the difference in cost is really nothing!

We were. In 6184 on the Fantasy. Lots. Of vibration. Felt. Likea massage bed at times. Yes the walk did seem long at times. We rebooked. 7170 for next year. Just a little closer to the elevators. Hopefully not so much Vibration.

We had 7682 on the Fantasy and had a lot of vibration. I would not book that room again.

We had 10142 on the Dream, and loved it. It was incredibly convenient to Cabanas.

We have also stayed forward, and those rooms were fine both times.

We were in 7680 aft on the Fantasy in May. It was a long walk to go foward. You do feel the vibration of the thrusters that far back. We did have a 7A obstructed verandah which we liked..but next time will try to be midship. We were midship on the Dream and didn't experience the vibration that we felt on the Fantasy.

We stayed in 8152 and found it to be very convenient. Close to elevators. Convenient to Cabanas, the kids clubs etc. Not so convenient in all of the ports as they often did not use the aft tender lobby and we would have to go foward to get off the ship. Overall, we loved the location though.

we were very aft in 9668 on dream,, while I didn't mind the walking, I did mind the vibrations! at night sometimes it was hard to get to sleep, it made me feel ill and usually I don't get sea sick!
The aft elevators were easier to get and we were right there at Cabana's and an ez walk to pool deck. We didn't have much hall traffic either which was very nice.
My husband always joked when we got off midship elevators and walked thru the halls that its 100 rooms to go, LOL,, we were very tired of his lame joke by end of cruise!
We have decided to move more midship for our next yr cruise

We were Aft on a recent cruise and would not do it again! I posted a thread about it. The location re: distance and walking was not the problem..it was the vibration at night. Hard to sleep! We moved.

we were in room 9662, AFT on the dream and it was wonderful. Close the drink stations, Cabanas and elevators were never busy in the "AFT". If I were to cruise again, I would defintely book an aft room without hesitation

Thanks so much. The vibration problem does have me sticking where we are for now - I am a light sleeper!

We had 8188 on the April 21 Fantasy and it was great. It is a long walk forward, but you have to walk off all the extra food anyway. I would definitely try for this room again in the future. I have been mid prior to this, and I like aft better.

Last week, we had 7666, 7668, 7673, 7675. We loved the proximity to the aft elevators but it was a haul to the laundry. The vibration was definitely noticeable on the first night but I didn't notice it after that.
