Aft Veranda's on the Dream/Fantasy

I can see from the deck plans that there are some amazing aft rooms with larger verandas on the Dream and the Fantasy and I've read some cabin reports. If you have stayed in an aft cabin with a veranda, can you tell what cabin number and what kind of view people above you have of your balcony?

DH is concerned about going out in the AM and having people above us being able to look down on us.

Also, the deck plans don't have all the HA rooms marked on it. If your aft room was a HA room, let me know that too please. I'd like 2 connecting aft rooms but we won't be needing a HA room.

Thank you for you any input

Do a search here. There are lots of threads about this. Look for "aft verandahs"

Here's our review:

It's basically the outer 4 feet or so of standable room on balcony that where folks above can see you. Still plenty of private space out there. Also due to the sloped dividers that outer area is visible to the adjoining cabins too, depend on the ship curve/specific cabin location.

Have you seen these plans? I believe all the HC cabins are marked.

I think maybe 8682 and 8684 would work for what you are wanting. There are great reviews of both in the stateroom reports and neither one is HA.

Thank you! Those are some awesome photos. How was the privacy from above?

Those would be great cabins and what I am looking for however 8682 has been reported as a HA room on the Dream: http://www.disboards.com/showpost.ph...postcount=1324 Is it not HA on the Fantasy?

So I guess I'm more interested in opinions about 5190/5192, 7192/7194, 9174/9176 and 10164/10166 and 8682/8684 if 8682 is not HA on the Fantasy.

As I have read more about balconies in the past two days than I ever have before, it seems there are few/no balconies that you can watch the boat in contact/making waves in the water? Obviously, I'd like the extra room on the balcony, connecting rooms and DH doesn't want someone throwing food onto the balcony from above.

Thanks for the help.

No issue with that whatsoever. That is one main reason why we prefer the huge aft verandahs to the deck 5 ones (cat 4E).

For us, our absolute fave cat on the ship is 5E

I think the layout is the same but 8682 is not listed as HA on the Deck Plans released by Disney so I am not sure

I do know I really wanted one of the extended balconies for my cruise but none are available so you better grab it as soon as you can!!!

We were in 8186 on the Fantasy a few weeks ago. The verandas are well worth it! The only way the peopl above you can see you is if you are leaning on the railing looking out. If you are sitting on the lounge chairs, or the regular chairs there is no way that someone could see down from above! Lots of privacy

Was this connected to 8184? And was 8184 a HA room? Thanks!

We had 5190 on the Fantasy this summer and loved it. Tried to book it again for next year and it was taken already. We moved to the 7th floor to get aft balconies and looking forward to them! I liked looking down from 5 and seeing the back of the ship and water. Not sure how I'll feel if I stand there to look and look down to see other people sticking their heads out.

8184 is not HC. 8186 connects to 8184 with an internal door.

If you study the deck plans they speak volumes.

I have stayed in 5190 on both the Dream and the Fantasy. Love this location! The verandah is nice- with extra room. It has awesome views of Castaway Cay! I don't recall anyone above us being able to see down on our verandah.

I would definitely recommend this room!
