Ship: Disney Fantasy Stateroom: 5188 Condition: 5
Deck: 5 Category: 7A Location: Aft
  Sail Date: 06/27/15   

Notes: After reading many reviews of this room, when my husband and I were assigned GTY status, I was initially so disappointed when I found out this was our cabin...I couldn't believe our bad luck. But, we were so excited about this trip, I wasn't going to let it ruin even a minute of our fun! All that being said, this room should not have the bad reputation it has...we loved it!! The balcony was small, but the views were unbelievable! I got up early in Castaway Cay, when I heard we backed in to port...very few rooms could have enjoyed that experience! We moved our room chair out to the balcony and there was plenty of room for us to sit together and put up our feet. There was engine noise, but I enjoyed the motion of the aft room and it put me right to sleep. It was very quiet and, as others have said, close to the laundry. Also, Animator's Palate was aft and the nights we ate there, we had a short walk down the hall and stairs. As soon as we got back, writing a review was on my To-Do list. Don't be disappointed if you get this cabin or its sister 5688. If you're traveling with two, or even three, it's a wonderful room! And, for the way cheaper price for a Navigator Verandah, it's easier on your pocketbook. My parents spent considerably more money on their room and it was exactly like ours, with a slightly larger balcony. Also, my sister's family chose to do the Navigatior Verandah and were surprised to be upgraded to a regular balcony, midship, near our parents...so there is always a chance, when booking the Navigator, even on a sold out cruise, that you'll be surprised with a regular balcony room for a way cheaper price! Anyway, don't be discouraged if you get this fabulous cabin! Happy Cruising!!

Notes: I haven't seen a review of this room so I wanted to post our thoughts. We loved our room!!! This room is located all the way at the back of the boat. Literally. It's about as aft as you can get. It is a 7A Navigator's Verandah. We had a smaller balcony but didn't feel like it was an issue at all. It has a small bench and looks over the back of the boat. The room itself was the perfect size for 2 adults and our 3 year old. Love the split bathroom and the balcony. Most of the time we backed into port so we always had the perfect view. Never once heard the club below. The only noise would be the engine when we were in high gear as well as vibration, but we enjoyed that as we both thought it hummed us to sleep. The laundry room is directly across from you which was a plus and because you are at the end of the hall, there is hardly any foot traffic which was great. Totally private since the right side is a porthole room and the left side there is a wall which totally separates you from the other balcony room. You do share a door with the porthole room. Overall we were thrilled with our room, the boat and our trip!

Notes: Yes, this room has a VERY small verandah. There is only a bench for seating (it couldn't fit 2 chairs), but what it lacks in size, it more than makes up for in views. Wonderful views of Castaway Cay and the Bahamas. Beautiful sunsets. other family members would come from their rooms with a full verandah to come to ours. It's right over the "Disney Dream" signage. It's a little noisy from the nightclubs below, but we enjoyed it. we would stay again.
