Connecting room doors

I have connecting rooms booked. Is it true that the connecting doors are auto close? If so, can they be locked open ?

We had connecting rooms on the Fantasy in September. The doors stayed open and worked just like doors at home. You could keep that open a little or a lot. The partition could also be removed to make a bigger sitting area outside.

It really depends on which ship you're sailing on. On the Classic ships, the doors don't stay open as there aren't magnets to keep them open like the Dream and Fantasy. Same thing for the balconies. On the Classic the partitions can't be opened, the newer ships they can....

We had connecting doors on the Magic a few weeks ago. They did not stay open, but our stateroom attendant brought doorstops to use. Also, you can leave the connecting doors unlocked and the other side can just push through to your room.

We had connecting aft balconies on the Dream in 2011.....I wish we had known that we could have opened the partition between balconies!! We went with another couple and had the late dinner seating so in the afternoon we would order some finger foods from room service and sit on the balcony with an adult beverage. It just would have been so convenient!
