    ** - Update 1/26/11 - NEW COMPREHENSIVE INDEX to this THREAD started in POST 7 **
    Index in Post 7


    Now that we've had our first detailed look at the Dream, there are some things that we can confirm.

    First, the 9A corner rooms at the back of the ship appear to have 2 medium-sized porthole windows instead of 1 large porthole! (rooms 5186, 5686, 6186, 6686)
    [​IMG]
    The gray area that breaks up the rooms on Deck 5 aft is a hallway leading to a door that opens out onto a larger than normal verandah area. We saw good pictures of the door when it was opened the first night, but it is unclear whether the space is open across the various verandah rooms next to it, or whether it is separated off. (rooms 5188, 5190, 5192 and 5688)
    [​IMG]
    While there does not appear to be any downgrading of rooms at the moment to create "secret verandah rooms" as on the current ships, there definitely appears to be some obstructions to the verandahs at the back, that may lead to some reclassification if enough people complain about the obstructions. Rooms 7668 and 7170 (cat 5C) appear to have the most obstruction from the pictures, but 9152/9652 (5A), 8164/8662 (5B), 6164/6664 (5D) all have some obstruction overhead as on the current ships (though the deck 6 ones looks really slight.) In addition, because of the rounded detailing, rooms 9164, 9664, 8176, 8674, 7182, 7680, 6178, 6678, 5180 and 5680 all have some obstructions to the verandah as well, but they are all advertised as metal walled verandahs so probably no adjustment there.
    [​IMG]

    There are also obstructions on the verandah rooms by the forward portholes as well. If you look at the following picture, rooms 5524/5024, 7520/7022, 8520/8022, and 9512/9012 all seem to have some obstruction to the verandah, though some is quite slight. Anyone who books 5024 or 5524 should really complain, since the verandah is seriously obstructed, and that verandah is not extended out as the rest of the 5E verandahs ended up being.
    [​IMG]

    The accessible Cat 4B rooms on Deck 8 (8090/8588 and 8092/8590) appear to have double sized verandahs. When you look at a picture of the side of the ship, the is a blank where it appears like a room is missing, until you line up the deck plan and see the two accessible rooms there. This also seems to hold for the accessible room 5552, which is the last verandah room on the left on the picture above. Assume it will hold true for the accessible rooms on the port side of the ship as well, on decks 8 and 6.

    For those who have asked for it, here's a new indexed picture of the starboard aft part of the Dream:
    [​IMG]

    And the forward part!
    [​IMG]

    Here are the front facing rooms!
    [​IMG]

    Not labeled, but this shows a clear view of the two royal suites and suite 12000, plus the top of the ship.

    And some of the concierge rooms on the port side:

    You seem to be good at locating rooms. We are in room 8676 and room 8578 do these rooms seem okay with no obstructions?

    Thanks for posting these great rooms and comments!

    I am really confused. We are booked in 8188 a verandah in the back. Is there no separation between us and our neighbors?

    Wouldn't that be weird?

    You can see both of these rooms on the pictures below. On the first picture posted, 8676 is the third verandah room from the back on deck 8, next to the heavily obstructed (from the picture) 8674, to which it connects. (In case you wonder which deck is deck 8, count up from the bottom with Deck 5 being the first deck with rooms.)
    [​IMG]

    For room 8578, look at the picture posted below. Locate the white space that looks like a missing room. That is the double wide verandah space I refer to for the accessible rooms in the other post. The verandah door to the right of the white space is room 8588. 8578 is 5 doors to the right of 8588.

    Take a look at this picture. There are lots of people standing on your verandah as well as on deck 9 above. There does not appear to be separation between the verandahs on the very back of the ship, especially when you look at the people standing on Deck 9.

    So our back aft room seems to be obstruction free and have a plexi glass veranda vs. the solid white wall that was stated when we first booked, it has since been removed from the DCL website. Sounds good to me!!!

    In honor of the Dream's MV today, I'm repurposing this post to attempt to create a comprehensive index of the information in this thread. This will be a continuing work in progress, but hopefully we can cut down the amount of time people spend looking for things. Hopefully I can do 40-60 posts a night, and make some progress slowly but surely.

    NOTE - All of the post #s referenced below assume you are viewing from oldest (Post 1) to newest (highest number post), and not in the reverse order.

    O Man! I am not sure if i like that! :confused:

    We just switched to 8188 today from another room and we were extremely psyched for our choice. Now I don't think that I like it. We haven't had a verandah before and I thought it was going to be a private thing???

    Hmmmm..... not sure what to do now. What do others think?

    It's really weird, since they show the separation on the deck plans for those rooms. But it's really hard to see any separation on the pictures I've seen thus far. Here's a slightly different angle, with some guys standing right in front of 8188, but I'm still not seeing much in the way of separation between 8188 and room 8186 to the left and 8684 to the right.

    We are booked in room 10582. Does anyone know what will be located in the deck above us? I assumed it was the really expensive suites, but perhaps not...

    Maybe they needed that space for the float-out so that their crew can scatter on the balcony for look out and that they might add dividers later? :confused3

    I hear ya discorsner… we have that room too.. :goodvibes

    You're just under the back edge of the Donald pool, or perhaps the space between the Donald and Mickey pools.

    Could it be if those rooms are connecting rooms, they wanted to give them a shared balcony?
    I wouldn't like it either.

    Thanks so much for your help....does anyone happen to know if it would be loud with a pool above us, and if so...how late are they open? We are wondering if we would be better going a floor down...but really like the idea of being as high as we can get!

    The balconies have to have dividers... they're just not open. When you look at the pics of the side of the ship the dividers aren't open either. Check the one of Donald walking.

    There's no way DCL would give us extra balcony space (without charging) or expect us to share with our neighbors. That would cause WW3.

    yea… I don't think ALL of the verandahs have dividers yet… maybe for maintenance while the ship is still under construction :goodvibes

    Good point. It looks like they are still painting the railing back there. Maybe they haven't put all the dividers in because it is easier to go out there and work with being able to walk back and forth?

    Just a hope/guess. lol.

    I guess lol… I mean on the pic where Donald was walking around the balcony, those didn't have any dividers on the deck he was in… Maybe they haven't installed the divider that could be opened…. They've only installed the permanent ones because it's part of the structure? :confused3

    Might be a weight issue. The ship can only draw so much water, before she sits too deep to transit the river. They may seem light, when we use them, but add a feww hundred toegther and the weight adds up quick. Also, they may get put on while in wet dock, or after her return from the north sea. Id be willing to bet that there is no furniture onboard yet, or tables ( at least not all of them) in the dining rooms etc. That will prob get put on after her return from the sea trials.
