Best/largest aft verandah rooms on Dream/Fantasy?

I am looking to sail the 7 night eastern caribbean next September and would like to know what the best rooms are with the larger verandahs?

Many thanks!

We were in 5150 on the Dream and the balcony was almost the same size as the room

We loved how close it was to the kids club and elevators, just hop on and you're right up at Cabanas!

Deep or Wide?

We have 10658 and it looks like one of the wider verandahs. (corner of the ship)

I believe they are on deck 5, category 4e. We booked 5656 ourselves for dec 2013. Also, there is YouTube of Disney Dream 5656 and it shows the " oversized verandah".

My parents just had stateroom 8188 on the Dream and it had a HUGE verandah off the very back of the ship. It was seriously triple the size of our verandah.

With a little research you can find them all. Though I do know that some are held until later because they are accesible rooms. On that note some may have huge verandas but they only have one bathroom vs the split bath and some reviews claim that the lower ones can smell fumes from the engine. But since I've never been I don't know.

Aft Trade-off

now remember...there is a small trade-off to these large Aft balconies. Soot comes in (at night) and can get on the clothes you may have out there....they clean it up almost immediately so it was not a big deal for us....just be aware not to leave stuff out there overnight...

This never happened on our Aft balcony, and I spent a lot of time out there.

We had 10160 on the Dream and loved it. We have 9172 in December on the Fantasy and can't wait.

DCL requests that you never leave anything out on your veranda (towels, clothes, etc.).

9674 was pretty huge, as was our neighbors next to us (direct center of ship, deck 9).

We have 8188 on 2 of our next 3 cruises. Love those aft verandas.

How exciting!!

It's a shame that the stateroom reports don't include pictures!
