CAT 5E on Dream

I was looking into the prices for May 2013 Bahama Dream Cruises. I noticed that CAT 5E has oversized verandahs (some with white walls)

How much bigger are they compared to the regular verandahs?

I would love to be on Deck 10 and wasn't sure if anyone knew which rooms on Deck 10 that are in CAT 5E that DONT have WHITE WALL verandahs

Thanks

I believe that decks 7 and 8 have the biggest 5E verandahs on the Dream and Fantasy.
We stayed in an aft 5E cabin on deck 8 that had a wrap around verandah that was almost as wide as the Royal suites'.

This was my verandah, which I've booked again for my next 3 cruises, thanks to Jessica.

All of the very aft verandahs have a part metal wall. I'd be reluctant to be on deck 10 simply because of the noise from Cabanas above and when they hose down the deck, it will run down to deck 10 verandahs.

On our Nov b2b, I had a chance to walk around and see lots of cabins all with doors propped open. I asked if I could take a quick peek in one of our future cabins, deck 7 aft, and take some pics.
Here they are:

Before I scrolled down and saw your post, I said the exact same thing! It is really amazing when you compare it to the picture from when the Dream was first launched and someone showed that extremely tiny verandah that couldn't even fit a chair.

Yes - the 8682 verandah (and the room itself!) is amazing!! My DBF and I tried to book it again for our next cruise (5/13/12)...but it's already taken --- so instead we got right next door, 8684!! Anyone have pictures of this room/verandah? I can't find any anywhere

We are booked in 6192 or our cruise that leaves 4 weeks from today. It is directly below 7194 that is pictured above. The verandah is close to the same size, but loses a little pace to the flagpole enclosure. We have seen photos of the verandah with 4 of the small loungers and the bistro set, and there's still ample room. We are really excited for our first cruise.

Thanks for the picures! I will have 2 rooms 7192 & 7194 connecting rooms and balcony. It was great to see the door between the two balconys that we are going to open!! LOL I am also in South Jersey !

I believe that the only extended verandahs on the dream for Cat 5E are on deck 5, UNLESS you have a forward or aft room, literally on the back end or the front end of the ship
