We are looking at going to the Bahamas in April 2014. It will be our second Disney cruise as a family (our first will be on the Fantasy in Feb., 2013) and we are bringing along my mom...and DD and grandma will have one room, DH and I will have another. Originally we had two verandah rooms booked on the Dream. Then, after I saw a few DISers suggesting two rooms, one inside and one verandah across the hall, for people trying to fit 5 in a room, I started to wonder if that could work for us, too. I had trouble finding that set up on the Dream, and I realized it would work on the Magic, which happens to be doing the exact same itinerary as the Dream, just one day later during spring break. So, I know this is probably too subjective of a question to ask, but which do people prefer: the older, more intimate smaller ships, or the bigger, newer ships, and why?
