Notes: During most of our 7 night Fantasy cruise, 2525 was like a vault. It was very quiet. There is no stateroom on one side; it is some kind of service closet. There was no noise from the shopping areas above on deck 3. Only on the final night was there sporadic noise from below, which may have been from luggage handling prior to disembarking.
2525 is very convenient to the midship elevators and to the lobby area on deck 3. It is also close to Enchanted Garden, which is right around the corner, although the stateroom hallways were never affected by any traffic to that restaurant. The access hallways leading from the elevator area to the stateroom hallways on deck 2 have a little twist to them that almost makes them hidden unless you are looking for them -- it's pretty cool. Deck 2 staterooms are also convenient for port days, as there is only one flight down to the gangways.
The virtual porthole seemed to always be showing a port side view since that is the way the porthole "faces" if you were really looking that way. Having the virtual porthole was a nice touch for the inside stateroom. It doesn't really function at night, however, as the image gets grainy.
There was just enough room for our family of three. We did not miss the split bathroom from a previous cruise -- the shower, toilet, and sink setup in a single bathroom worked just fine. The shower in particular was fantastic -- good pressure and hot water. The main bed was very comfortable. The trunk/coffee table helped provide for extra storage space along with the drawers and closets. One small flaw is that the bathroom door and the closet doors can conflict with each other.
I would pick this specific stateroom 2525 again on either the Dream or Fantasy.
