    We loved these rooms! The only issue we had was noise from Deck 11 on Pirate night. They played the music really loud until 11:30. Also sometimes at night you would hear people running across the deck which was a little annoying. It was minor though. The rooms were large and well laid out. We had lots of room for all our luggage and junk. I think next time I would book on deck 9, just because of the noise factor.

    We are staying in room 8502 in October and i was wondering if it is a bumpier ride in the front of the ship? Also is it quiet in that particular room. I guess what I am asking is, would you recommend the room. Thanks

    It was extremely quiet. I wouldn't say it was bumpier but I would say for a moment there there was some rolling. The rolling was due to there being some rain but it wasn't too bad. I would recommend it, just watch your head when looking at the porthole.

    While I have not officially stayed in 10158 yet, we are booked for that room for our 2013 cruise. I have been researching this room too and found someone who has stayed in that room on prior cruises. She told me that there is some shade from the overhang but not the entire deck is shaded. I guess it was actually nice because you could eat your breakfast in the shade/have some shelter if it rained. It is also a partial white wall so she said if you were laying down in the chairs you wont be able to see out over the rail. I dont know about you, but we are so excited for that big balcony :) Hope this helps! Let me know what you think of the room when you return from your cruise, I am a bit worried about cabanas being overhead.

    Hi Everybody!

    We're taking our first cruise in 2013 and can't wait! We are booked into room 10132. I can't find any pictures or reports but I'm not really a great computer person so I could be missing the info. Anybody have anything for 10132?

    The only thing I'm a little worried about is seasickness but reading all the info and advice on these boards has helped to put my mind at ease. So thanks to everyone for sharing!

    We just got back from our first cruise ever! :)
    We booked 2 rooms; 8010, which was a category 8C room (Family oceanview), and 8001, a category 11A room (inside stateroom). Both rooms were excellent. 8010 was bigger than I'd expected and 8001 was smaller than I expected. We had our 3 teenage boys share the smaller room, and it was fine (as they were never there except to sleep anyway).

    Recently our family of 4 stayed in Dream cabin 9579 a 10A deluxe inside. It was a very nice room with plenty of storage and quite convenient to the mid ship elevators. We had no problem with noise from the connecting stateroom, but did notice a lot of noise from running in the hall. So while the room doesn't have "ship" noise associated, it is luck of the draw for fellow passengers. The queen bed was heavenly and our teens said the couch and bunk over it were fine. We were pleasantly surprised with the tub in the bathroom-expected shower only.

    My room 8544 is not on there, but the rooms close to it are and it sounds good so far. When I come back from my cruise and it is not entered yet, I will give a review. :)

    we just got back from a 4 night cruise on the Dream and we stayed in stateroom 10664 which is a 5E category room. This room is located at the stern and has an oversized balcony that has both 2 chairs and 2 loungers. The room is located on deck 10 under Cabanas. We had read that the room is loud with Cabanas above you and this is very accurate. My wife and I are early risers so we were up before all the activity above us. You here Kids running and chairs being shuffled on the deck above. One of our neighbors actually had to change staterooms because they had small children who could not take naps because of the noise and could not get them to bed at a reasonable time again because of all the cleanup and noise from Cabanas. If you have small children or like to sleep in late this is NOT THE STATEROOM FOR YOU. It didn't really bother us but we would not stay in this stateroom again. Look at deck 8 or 9 if you want to be in the stern.

    Hi there!!
    Hoping to help some people out :)

    We stayed in the Disney Dream room 7689 an 11B cabin aft (it was back end of the ship).
    Loved the porthole...saw multiple characters (ie surfing goofy, tinkerbell, Lightning McQueen, dancing hippos, etc.)
    The room was not in the least bit noisy...we were extremely tired every night so that may have helped
    It has a pull down bed with stars on the ceiling..my 7 year old loved this bed!!!

    The location was wonderful in that the aft elevators were never busy...the only difficulty with the location is that we had to walk to the midship elevators (which seemed more forward than midship) to reach the kids clubs on deck 5. Had to walk through Cabanas to get to the pool areas on deck 11 but it really didnt bother us as there were lots of others doing it as well. You could also take the aft elevators to deck 4 to the adult entertainment area was which was extremely convenient when the kids were in the clubs :cool1:

    We (or just me as the kids were zonked out) could feel the movement of the boat on 2 of our 4 nights...the one night was pretty significant, but I could also feel the movement in the theater and restaurant as well. (or maybe it was just the wine :cheer2:)

    We loved our stateroom host and had towel animals every night ...he was absolutely fantastic...the kids loved him as well (shout out to Rajan from India)

    If anyone has any specific questions Id be more than happy to help :) but only if you can fit me in the room with you ;)
    Big hugs!

    We are booked for a category 5a room on the Fantasy next year. Can someone explain how the categories differ. 5a-5d?? I can't see a difference. Sorry for my confusion.

    BTW, we are booked for Room 10632. Anyone have any comments?

    We just got back from a 5 night cruise on the Dream. We booked a VGT and got assigned 7628 Category 4C Deluxe Family Oceanview Stateroom with Veranda. We couldn't have picked a better location. There is only three of us so it was great to have the extra room. No noise, no motion and very convenient to both aft and mid elevators. Our stateroom host, NATHA was FABULOUS. We would definitely book this room again!!!

    This will be my first time on the Fantasy. I sailed the Dream this past December and was on Deck 7 mid-ship. I tend to get sea sickness (always) so I didn't want to go too high and wanted to stay near the center. Thankfully I didn't feel sick AT ALL and now am ready to venture out.

    I'm currently booked in room 10158 on the Fantasy as I heard the larger verandah's can be quite nice. My only concern is that I saw a video clip of the same room (10658) just on the other side and the TV was on the same wall as your pillows. We're big fans of watching TV in bed at night when it's time to turn in. I noticed there were a few other rooms with oversized verandah's that we could switch to. I was hoping I could get some opinions on this.

    We're in 10158, but 10160 and 10162 are also available, as well as 8684 (which would eliminate the noise from Cabanas above that I keep hearing about). However it appears the verandah we have is huge, and I hate to give it up if it's really a little treasure I'm sitting on. Room 10160 also seems quite large, but 10162 seems small in comparison, and room 8684 seems to be somewhere in the middle of the pack.

    Any thoughts?


    Karen

    I've never seen this on any of the 3 Disney ships I've been on. The TV has always been on the wall opposite the bed/couch. Where did you see this video clip?
