Hi--I think we're going to book our first cruise on a 3 day Dream cruise for spring 2012. We'll be with our two children, 10 and 7 when we cruise. I think we're going to go with the Deluxe Oceanview Room with Porthole--the slightly larger room that "guarantees" a porthole rather than 2 windows. Questions: Those all see to be in front or back of ship--is it rockier than in the middle? Should we try to get a non connecting room for noise control? Are the kids clubs a problem? Many of those rooms are by the stairs/elevators--will they be extra noisy? And do we know where the drink station and the equivalent to Goofy's Snack bar type thing would be? Are they going to be on the same level as the pools? Sorry for so many questions!! This would be our first cruise and I'm trying to get things right!! I know that cruises can be noisy, but I'm trying to avoid getting a "bad" room--we would think about bumping up to Verandah if the thought was that middle of the ship is significantly better (for motion sicknesses and to be away from elevators). We could also bump up the Oceanview rooms by going to decks 7 or 8 if that would make it better. Any ideas? Thanks!
