    *The room is on the same deck and side, 8 doors down from our stateroom on our last cruise. Perhaps DCL noticed a pattern since our 4 previous cruises with them have been 5C forward on the port side?!

    #3. What category (ex: 7a, 4c, 11c or whatever) and room # did you get? Cat 7A, 6640
    #4. Are you happy with your assignment or do you feel like you got a "leftover"- undesirable room/location? A little disappointed. Happy to in a verandah cabin but was hoping for clear plexiglass. The location seems fine. Aft. Supposedly there's lots of vibration when docking but that's ok. I want to get up early to see the islands anyway. That part I don't mind. I might mind it docking in San Pedro though, lol! On the bright side the 7A verandah is supposed to provide some protection from the wind. I've read (here and on other cruise sites) that the 3 sea days to and from Hawaii can be pretty windy so maybe being in a 7A is good. I will probably be able to enjoy it more. Can you tell I am trying to talk myself into being happy with it? ;)

    We just had this room on the 9/23 wonder. Great location because you are near the elevators and all the deck 9 food/drinks. It was a very quiet location as far as elevator noise and noise from people outside in the hall. Masrurie was our room host and was great. The verandah was fine. I agree a clear plexiglass would've been better, but I liked the bench.

    The only time we had vibrations from docking was in Ensenada cuz we backed in. That woke me up...mostly because of the shaking. Now, the down side....our second night at sea was a tad rocky and the room creaked soooo bad. It was loud. I was up half the night. When you get in there you will see people folded pieces of paper and stuck them between the wall and the ceiling. We added two more by the verandah door cuz it rattled so bad. It stopped once I added a couple more shims. I have only ever done Carnival and I can say I never had a room make so much noise. Sooo that may be of some concern on the way out to Hawaii. Friends of ours had a midship room on deck 6 and they had the same creaking problem. Otherwise, would I book this room again? Yes! Great location.

    Btw, if you happen to find a gold Winnie the Pooh earring, please let me know. My daughter lost it in there somewhere. :(

    Have a great time and enjoy!

    Oh wow. I've heard the ship can be pretty rocky on the way over and back. Are you a heavy sleeper or light one?

    I would say I'm a medium sleeper. :) Used to be heavy until i had a kid. Hubby and DD (3) slept through it all. It was so bad I took a video of it...even though it was pitch black. Ha ha! It was only one night though...thank goodness. I'm assuming its the whole ship not just this room. Would've been nice to be prepared for it. I finally slept when I put the pillow on my head. Ear plugs perhaps?

    Oh! And it's a connecting room which makes some people concerned. We had no problems with the fact that it was connected to another room. I heard the kid next door mess with the door once. We stored our stroller in front of it. Just in case you were wondering.

    Which is why I wonder why they didn't give it to a large family. Oh well.

    We are medium sleepers. The Wonder creaked and rocked hard our last night on the way back to LA in April. We were midship though. I sure hope its not louder than that. Must be if people are putting things in spaces. Oy!

    Ha ha!! I know. When we first got to the room I was like what's that all about.... You will see. Surprised they haven't removed it all. Ha ha! Like I said though, it's quiet because its almost at the end of the ship. That was nice.

    IGT - INSIDE GUARANTEE
    OGT - OUTSIDE GUARANTEE
    VGT - VERANDA GUARANTEE

    These fares are discounted and you don't choose your room. DCL assigns you a room in the category you booked.

    #4. Are you happy with your assignment or do you feel like you got a "leftover"- undesirable room/location? Never been on Dream but didn't want deck 2. :( We did get a HA room even though there is only two adults in the room. Neither need a HA room.

    #6. How many days before departure date did you book? Around 50?

    I will admit, I was hoping for some pixie dust to a verandah like everyone else seems to be getting on the newer ships!
