view of fireworks from aft cabins? - Dream

Hi -

Do you have a good view of the fireworks from the aft cabins, or is it better up on deck?

Thanks!

The best view will be up top. Not sure if you would see much of anything from an aft deck at all.

You might see them, if you are on the starboard side of the ship, but the Captain asks that people NOT be on their aft balconies during the fireworks show, as they are shot off from an area near Palo, and there could be debris. They will also ask you to not leave any articles of clothing or towels out that night (although they ask this of EVERY night) and it's been our experience that CM's come by around dinner time and hose off the aft balconies with something before the fireworks.

I watched them from my aft balcony. There was nothing that I saw or received telling me not to be outside. I was in the middle of the back and saw everything.

I'm so glad to hear this!
What cabin were you in? We are going to be in 7194 on the Fantasy. My DD is scared of loud noises (especially fireworks) so we were hoping to be able to watch them from our veranda while she stayed close by in the cabin.

We were in 9674 on the Dream and were shocked at the fireworks we could see. We weren't expecting to but my daughter and I decided to step out and check. It was great! It was like watching our own private fireworks display.

We loved this room so much that I've booked it on the Fantasy. Definitely going to be on the verandah for the fireworks this time. Maybe order some goodies from room service and have our own little private party?? Sounds like a good time to me.... and without the hordes of folks too! Hope the display is as visible on the Fantasy as it was on the Dream....
