Here is a picture of the kids beds pulled down. The third bed would be the one behind the chair if it was pulled out. This was cabin 10096 on the Dream a family deluxe verandah room.

We used points to book our cruise and didn't think to book 2 rooms.... So no on board credits
With children those ages, you will be just fine in one room.
I think using two rooms works better when you have people fighting for bathroom time to get ready, etc.

We are doing the two room (4B and 11 across the hall) on the Fantasy next year but that is because we are taking DD's BFF with us. So having a non-family member teen in addition to me and DD trying to get ready....just not worth it to have only one room

Here is our video...
https://vimeo.com/46397935

It shows the rooms with bunks open and closed...two cat 4Cs. It varies on whether 2 rooms are less $$ than one. I price it both ways and the subtract the various OBCs for each and see what the net cost is....then decide.
Two cat 4Cs was more space than we needed for the 5 of us. DD13 was never around. We were all out late each evening....and when the little ones napped, I sat on the verandah. You'd be fine either way.

I travelled this summer with my four sons , 15,18,20 and 27 on the Dream. We stayed in a category 4A , one room for all of us .. We like the verandah option so doing two inside cabins was not something that interested us. We were a little concerned about space prior to going but honestly , it worked out great . I would not hesitate to do it again ...

I traveled last year in a 4A on the dream with my mom amd 3 teenagers. We had plenty of room and are doing it again in March with DH instead of DM. Mom packs like she is leaving for a month and we still were fine! We love being together in a beautiful room with a verandah.

We used vacation club points so I don't really want to change our reservations since there will be a change fee, I think....

My hubby and I thinks we will be fine since our kids are still very young... An 11 yr old, 3 yr old and a 2 yr old by then...

Maybe when they get older, then it'll make more sense to get 2 connecting rooms...

I agree with you. The ages of your children it would be difficult to get separate rooms. I think you'll be fine. There's tons of space on the Dream. The bed is higher off the ground so you can easily slide your suitcases under the bed. I used one as a hamper for our dirty clothes. I used another one to keep all eletronics together and locked up while we were out of the room. I found it very handy.

Thank you! It's nice to know we can store the luggages under the bed, I don't remember doing that last time we were on the magic...

I have sailed in this very stateroom on the Dream. We were in 9158, 2 adults, 3 kids (11, 9, 7) and I was surprised how spacious the room was. We also loved the location, one of our favorites!

We even sailed this room after 2 cruises of having adjoining staterooms!

Five is Fine

We sailed with five on the Magic and we had enough room. We had a room with a verandah, large bed, bunk beds and a murphy bed. It could be tight at times but I was not upset or disappointed with the amount of space. The five consisted of Me, my Husband, 15 yr old. son, 13 yr old daughter, and 7 yr old daughter. Hope this helps

You will be fine with 5 in a room. We have done it three times with our kids and next summer have a 4A booked on the Fantasy with 2A, 3K (17, 15, 12).
