|Ship: Disney Dream||Stateroom: 6566||Condition: 5|
|Deck: 6||Category: 5A||Location: Mid|
|Sail Date: 01/16/14|
Notes: We loved, loved, loved our room! This was a starboard room slightly forward of midship. Once off the midship elevators, we were only 2 doors down. It was very quiet considering the location - a pleasant surprise. Easily accessible to everything. Our view of Castaway Cay was beautiful....Nassau, not so much! We found the room to be very spacious by cruise ship standards and my fiance traveling on Disney for the first time found it to be incredibly large! We were very close to theaters which made it nice to go back to the room to change or grab a jacket after dinner. Would love to be port side next time, but overall loved the location! Oh, it did not bother us at all, but the lifeboats were directly below our balcony. Since we spent time looking out, not down, it did not bother us at all, but some might prefer to be a little more above them.

Notes: This was my stateroom for a 4-night cruise to the Bahamas and I was very happy with it. The verandah is nice, it has two chairs and a small table, and the stateroom is convenient to the mid-ship stairs/elevators. The lifeboats are visible just below the level of the verandah but I thought the view from the verandah was great and that was not an issue for me. The stateroom has a queen bed, a convertible sofa, and a ceiling pull-down bed(the stateroom host/hostess will set it up each night when they do turn down, any other time you can just call them and they will take care of it for you). I would be happy staying in this stateroom again. I do have a few pictures of the stateroom/verandah, feel free to send me a message if interested.
FYI, on my DCL confirmation this stateroom was listed as a category 05D but that wasn't one of the choices so I listed it as category 05C in this stateroom report, not sure what the difference is.
|Ship: Disney Fantasy||Stateroom: 6566||Condition: 5|
|Deck: 6||Category: 5D||Location: Mid|
|Sail Date: 02/16/13|
Notes: Best condiion of any stateroom I have ever been in (this was our 5th disney cruise). Beds, pillows were great. Midship to slightly forward (which is where u want to be on Dream / Fantasy). Near midship elevators / stairs. Fairly quiet. Housekeepings elevator is nearby (so some noise on first and last day due to luggage delivery). Verandah is over a life boat and deck 4 shuffleboarders... so you will hear the shuffleboarders when on the balcony - but not in the room. I am being very nit picky here... but this is a great room and I would stay in it again (though I prefer port side over starboard - this one is starboard).
|Ship: Disney Wonder||Stateroom: 6566||Condition: 3|
|Deck: 6||Category: 6||Location: Mid|
|Sail Date: 09/20/09|
Notes: Room was very convenient to the elevators and had a great view of Castaway Cay. It was noisy at night, sounds like there was construction going on or the room was above some engine/machine that went off throughout the night. We weren't in the room much in the day, so can't tell if it was noisy. Other than that the room was great.
