Many thanks!
DH ssanders79 just posted pics on the last page of the "NO to aft verandahs" thread of our 9674. I'm not sure how to post the link using the iPhone DIS app (we're in the car headed to Typhoon Lagoon).

The large aft verandahs are Cat 5E. There are also different long large verandahs (referred to as oversized" on deck 5, cat 4E. In our opinion, those do not at all appeal to us. I'm not into having everyone from decks 6-10 look down onto it. We were in Cat 5A on the Dream (9648 ) & I didn't like looking down onto them, either. We are definitely in the Cat 5E aft verandah camp.

You will get people who like both emphatically. That's just our opinion. Loved loved loved our room & can't wait to have 8188 on our next 2 cruises!!!!

From the deck plan, it looks to me that the trade off for having the 4e on deck 5 is that your cabin in smaller -- these look to me to be the same size as the category 5 staterooms.

On our recent sailings, I looked down from our balcony at these balconies and thought they looked amazing. The more I thought about it, though, the less I think I would want one of those if they came at category 4 prices -- the reduced room size plus the fact that a quarter of the ship can see into your balcony would make it a no go for me.

We stayed in 8188 on the Dream back in March. The verandah is HUGE as others have mentioned.

It was our first cruise, but we loved being center aft and having that huge verandah.

Fantasy 6192

We stayed in rm 6192 on the Fantasy in May and had a large balcony which is where the flag pole comes up and at times had the flag on the balcony while in port. You will feel and hear the thrusters (not the engines) when you pull into and out of port, it is extremely unlikely that you will sleep through this. We did not have any soot on the balcony, however that depends on the wind. We did find a ping pong ball on our balcony. The balcony was probably 1/3 to 1/2 the size of the stateroom.

We were just in Fantasy 7190. I will state that it is a H/A cabin. We do not required handicapped facilities, DCL simply assigned it to us and we were thrilled.
HUGE verandah (this room, however, cannot be requested unless there is a H/A need). I suppose noone needed it on our Sept 29 cruise so it was like an upgrade. We did book 5E AFT verandah again on this most recent cruise. Many were already taken when we booked on night 4 of a 7 night cruise. We got 9172. I know this verandah and room will not be nearly as large, but very curious to see photos of 9172 if anyone has any ???

Here are photos of 7190 verandah wrap-around :

I am in that same "LOVE 5E" club now ! And the AFT noise/vibration does not seem to be any issue for us. We barely noticed it. I guess some people are more sensitive to it ?

6690 the balcony is huge! It's long length wise and fairly wide. A family friend of ours stayed on in it on the Dream. I went on theirs more than mine!
