You should check out the deck plans we have on our site for the Dream located here - http://www.dreamsunlimitedtravel.com/cruise/deck-plans.htm - I know they say 2011 but it is also for 2012. That should help you get an idea where the staterooms you might want are located. You mentioned wanting a 6A. You might not know this but all of the category 6 staterooms (6A and 6B) have the solid wall verandah and not the plexiglass. That's why they are a little cheaper than the category 5 staterooms. Not sure if that makes a difference to you or not.
