They do alternate. I stayed in 9634 on the Dream and always went down 1 floor to the laundry when necessary. I checked all the locations on the deck plans.

I stayed both on the Dream. I liked midship better. We always take the stairs anyhow, so elevators were not an issue. The Aft had alot of vibration when docking. It wasn't horrid, but we felt zero movement in our midship room. Midship room was also easier to get to wherever.... whereas aft, if you had to go clear forward, it was a trek. We had inside porthole rooms(which we loved) on both.

We were on deck 9 right by the Aft Elevators. I loved this location. Easy for Cabanas and when the gangway is Aft. I don't mind the walk forward because sometime we dropped the kids off at the club which is on the way to the forward part of the ship.

You are also close to the adult night life and the Aft Elevators are typically the least busy.

We have done aft and midsip on the Dream. I have to say I prefered midship. Walking and location was not the problem at all. In fact, since we had no kids and spent a lot of time in the District, aft was a better location. It was the shaking while coming into port that was the problem. First morning I was up early and the in gym, so it was not a big deal. But the second morning, when I decided to sleep in, it woke me up. I had no problems with shaking while in motion, only when docking. Not a huge deal, but if I could pick, I'd go midship.

We were in 10160 on the Dream last year and loved it. Never noticed any vibrations or noise from Cabanas. We're in 9172 on the Fantasy this year. We love aft rooms, and the large verandahs.

We did not stay in the AFT area, but did notice a vibration when we went to that part of the ship. I do remember telling my husband I would not want a room back there because of the vibration on the Fantasy. Hope that helps;/)

We just got off the 7 night Western on the Fantasy and were 8178, pretty much all the way AFT.
We love the location, and had no issue with any vibrations.....

We were as far AFT as one could be---7190. Loved it. Felt some mild vibration occasionally. The walk to midship was long and strangely the AFT elevators did not go all the way down to the lower decks. Loved the convenience to Cabanas and Animator's though. Liked it so much we booked AFT 9172 for next year.

Great to know. I just changed from a 5E Aft to an mid deck 2 11C because my boys wanted a magical porthole. I was really worried I could regret it.

I personally didn't stay in an Aft I was Mid, but a family friend was in the Aft (room 6690 on the Dream) and she loved it. Her balcony was huge! The walk was a bit long from the Mid but if You go down the Aft Elevators it won't be so bad. I didn't like the rocking of the boat you could feel but that was only on the last night. Other than that I never really noticed the boat rocking. The Aft isn't that bad but I liked where I was (room 8084 on the Dream) it was right by the elevators (: Literally, I would go out of the elevators turn left and turn left one more time and right there it was! :D
