    That's what it looks like, to keep people from the flagpole.
    On the Magic and Wonder, access to the flagpole is on Deck 5 aft...another one of those areas that are "grey". There is a crew stateroom down there, with a nice sized balcony. Years ago, I'd been told it was the Cruise Director's room, but on my last cruise, I had the HC room just above it, and it wasn't the CD's room. A few of the CM's had a party out there one night.

    Anyway.....point being.....and this will make you feel somewhat better....the grey area on the back of the Dream, where there is just a door going outside....that will be a crew area where they can go put the flag up in the morning and put it back down. So yes, they do take it down every night.

    And yes.....so far, they have not added the balcony dividers...probably because it's easier for the workmen to paint, etc, and go back and forth, without having to go through the staterooms to do it.

    Only yet another "guess" but I imagine that the divider will go up far enough that you will never be disturbed. DCL wouldn't do that to anyone.

    Guaranteed, however they work it, you'll probably never see the person, and they will take it down at night. I think there's some kind of law that they have to do that...take it down.

    Look at the stateroom directly behind the flagpole aft. (#6192) Do you think that would be a great verandah or a terrible one?

    I say we claim the flag as our Little Souvenier. Anyone remember that?!

    The good thing about it is that it's deeper than the verandahs on starboard and port sides, and it looks like it will have both shade and sun....which is a huge plus for those aft rooms.

    The only thing I can see about those rooms on Deck 6 is that I just noticed the "double" wood handrail....not clear enough to really tell, but it looks like they've made some kind of walkway space for crew to reach the flagpole. Like I said above, DCL has "magic" and there will probably never be a time when you'd see the CM....but those rooms might lose a little square footage because of the double railing.

    Not sure, but I can tell you I have 6190 and 6192 booked on my points, not solid wall and on a cruise, so either way, I will be very happy :banana: BUT, I would also like to know about the dividers on the back (although we are connecting so hope we can open up the dividers) but I am now VERY interested in this flagpole :surfweb:

    They only fly the flag off of the Jack Staff (the flag pole on the back of the ship) when in port. It's always the Bahamas flag as it's the port it's registered in.

    I still haven't seen any good shots of the front, Deb. Maybe tomorrow on the Meyer Werft webcam we can see it better. :confused3

    HallsofVA, can you help me find our cabin? We are in 7600. Using the info you provided about rooms 8588/8590, and looking at a deck plan, I can see that we are down below 4 cabins to the left I think. If I go straight down from the blank wall and then count left (counting the room with a light on as #1, do I count 4 rooms or 3 rooms? I am slighly confused by the blank wall.

    I know this seems silly, but I would love to try and figure it out and show the kids!

    From all indications they are the same size as the other OV cabins--one big porthole. No "two small porthole" cabins as there are on deck 1 of the Magic/Wonder.

    The "smaller porthole" cabins you see on the Dream are for crew--no deck 1 cabins are visible on the deck plans.

    We are on deck 2, and it looks like those portholes are a good bit smaller than the others? I'd much rather have one than two teeny tiny ones, but I'm a LITTLE disappointed that the one is as small as it is. That's OK.... any oceanview is better than none at all, and I really would've been ok with the virtual porthole, too!

    We are in 12016, I'm assuming that's deck 12, but I don't know how to find it on the boat. I keep counting and it's not coming out right. I think our room is towards the front of the ship, maybe that's why I can't tell. Any thoughts?

    I feel the same way you do! I booked thinking I would have the same larger porthole as I had before.

    Your room hasn't been added to the ship yet as it is heavy and hangs off the side of the ship right underneath the AquaDuck. J/lk lol

    If you look at the 3rd pic in the first post you will see deck 11 is the one that overhangs(with all the glass) and deck 11 is set back above that.

    Look at the picture of the side of the ship where I talk about the h/c rooms on deck 8. The door to the left of the space that looks like a missing room on Deck 8 is room 8590. From the deck plans it look like that room is above 7594, which is the room with the light on. From 7594, your room 7600 should be three doors to the left (7596, 7598, 7600).
