Dream Staterooms 9152/9652?

Has anyone ever stayed in either stateroom 9152 or 9652 on the Dream? I can't find a review or photos anywhere. It's one of the new recategorized rooms. It's the new category 7A on the Dream (since they haven't had that category before). I'm just curious what the obstructions or smaller verandah possibly look like.

I haven't but we just booked it for my in-laws this morning on the Fantasy, so I'm subbing in case anyone speaks up.

Here is a picture of the dream with 9652 labeled. It is right next to the Oceanview rooms. You can see it does have a smaller verandah with a little bit of an overhang from the porthole section.

Looks good to me. When I booked, the CM told me that the 7a verandah's have a bench, instead of 2 chairs. He told me he likes the bench better. We are fine with that. Last time we had a verandah, it barely got used.

My only concern is that I believe it is right by the stairs and elevators, so I am hoping there is not a lot of noise from that.

I just moved my dummy booking from Dec 2012 to Oct, 2013. I booked 9152 Cat 7A obstructed verandah. We like the navigator veranda and the Fantasy does not have NV, so I am happy paying a cheaper price for the downgraded cat 5A to cat 7A. The price $2704 for 2A with transfer and insurance was the same price as a my dummy booking cat 8C on the Dream for Dec 1, 2012.

The cabin size and the balcony size are the same size as any other 5A category. The reason it was downgraded is because when you sit out on the balcony there is a curve of the hull about 1/4 to the left or right which might block your sideways view. Straight ahead and down view is not blocked. We are happy to get a great cabin at a reduced rate.

Do you know if these rooms have an upper pull down berth? It allowed me to book 4 people, so I assuming so. However, I want to be sure as the "bunk beds" are important to the kids and don't want a wall pull down.

Thanks!

This is an old cat 5A that sleeps 4, not a family stateroom that sleeps 5, so your kids would have the couch and a bunk bed right on top. The stateroom host will set up the sleeping arrangements while you are at dinner.

I asked a similar question about the 7A cabins on deck 7. A DIS'er was nice enough to post a link to an obstructed 7A balcony, so I could 'view' how much of an obstruction it really is. So I'm passing along the video that was provided to me here on the DIS boards. It's for cabin 7022, but it will give you an idea of the slightly obstructed balcony views for the 7A cabins.

Thanks to the original poster for taking this video!

Thank you both for the information. The savings was definitley worth it to me and I am very happy with the room type/category. Time to obsess about something else...

Just bumping this up to see if anyone has stayed in these cabins yet. We have booked 9152 for next year. Specifically, I would like to know if you enjoyed the veranda despite the overhang, if the noise from the stairs was a problem, and if there was a lot of vibration from the engines.

Thanks

Another bump...I am booked for 9652 on the Dream in Sept. Really worried about noise from the elevators/ppl congregating in front of our door.

Thank you for your replies

Going to give this another bump. I too am curious about noise from being close to the stairs.
