    I just booked Cruise #2 for me officially :banana: and Cruise #1 for my 16 year old DS ... well by the time we cruise he will be 10 days away from being 17 ... this is a special trip for just him and I before he begins his Senior Year:sad1:

    We got a Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom w/ Verandah ... Deck 6 #6188 AFT !!!
    I hope this is a good location.... it is what he picked out ... we ( see below) just got off the Wonder ( I know should have booked onboard, duh!!) and were inside on Deck 2 .. me, dh and ds (who just turned 7) ... We are going in 51 weeks LOL ... December 18-22, 2011 ... and going to WL for a few nights before :o)

    So excited I cannot stand it .....

    Any advice on an aft room is greatly appreciated !!!

    I enjoyed the aft room as we used the stairs alot. So quickly up to the food and pools.

    I absolutely love aft rooms. They are convenient to the dining rooms as well as to the beverage station and Palo. But then, I find something to like about almost every location.....

    Seriously, 5 aft is my favorite location on the ship.

    Looks like you are on the Dream. I'm thinking you'll have to wait until the end of next month when the first cruisers return to get the full details of being in an aft cabin on the new ship.

    I'm an aft gal on the Magic and Wonder and am as far aft as you can get on the maiden voyage of the Dream so I will have a full report. But I'm guessing it will be similar in terms of less foot traffic, simply because there are so few staterooms...the only people walking by your room are those staying in the same area. I'm guessing the Dream might have some thruster noise like the other ships, but that has never bothered me. It's like white noise to me. I just LOVE aft.

    I had a AFT room by the AFT elevators and loved it! Like the PP's said we took the stairs a lot. For our upcoming Dream cruise in Oct 2011 we also chose AFT again mainly for the location. We'll be in 6610:banana:

    I have stayed in an Aft room on a Carnival Cruise and actually liked the location. We tried to book the same room on our second Carnival Cruise - same ship. I agree with the other poster about being close to staircases and thusly food and pools.

    The only thing that I noticed in the AFT, was that the ship engines tend to be located toward the back of the ship and when the ship was going full speed we experienced more of a rumble. Nothing that caused us any trouble. We didn't know any better as that was our first cruise. When we went on our second cruise we noticed less rumble in a room located mid-ship.

    You should be just fine! :thumbsup2

    We stayed in an aft room on the Magic back in October and there was a lot more motion there than mid ship. The vibration pulling into Castaway Cay was a little scary (that could have been because I was still asleep when it happened and I woke up thinking - Earthquake!!!!!! :lmao:).

    I know some people really love aft cabins - and don't get me wrong - our aft balcony was amazing!! but I'm very happy that there are accessible balcony cabins mid ship on the Dream. :love:

    We booked the same room # 6188 on the July 10th 2011 Dream, I'm an avid photographer and will post alot of pictures when we return. We have been on afts before on Princess and Celebrity- very quiet and peaceful back there and from the stateroom drawings posted for the Dream, the aft rooms have larger balcony's also . I think you'll be pleased. Charlie :yay:

    Above post applies to the Wonder and Magic (no public verandah/overlook on the Dream). I always picked my inside cabins on Deck 7 after because I knew I could hit the 'secret' verandahh if I needed too! :rotfl:


    Deck 6 aft on the Dream should be a great location. One flight down the back stairs and your son will be at the kids clubs. Two flights down the back stairs and you and hubby will be at the adult venues. :thumbsup2
