Ship: Disney Wonder Stateroom: 8530 Condition: 5
Deck: 8 Category: R Location: Mid
  Sail Date: 05/27/13   

Notes: This room was amazing. So much space, which was awesome when our family needed space from each other! The 3 bathrooms were great, especially in the mornings. The little fridges were nice...too bad they weren't bigger, but we made them work! The concierge ensured that we had a constant supply of water, milk, pop (including lemonade from the MDR). The verandah was amazing, especially for Alaska. The location was great, especially when we needed to quickly run upstairs...no noise from the hallway was noticed. The only noise that we encountered was from the Quarter Masters, the arcade, which is located directly above the 2nd bedroom. Also, the room creaked a little when the seas got a little rougher...nothing serious, but it was noticeable. One hint...the living room furniture isn't attached so the floor, so it can be rotated to face outside, instead of to the tv! Suite was in great condition, no noticeable worn parts.

Notes: Absolutely a wonderful room. Noticed a little rust on the overhang over the verandah, but we saw the crew paining it over after we disembarked. (We did not want to leave the cabin, ever.

Ship: Disney Fantasy Stateroom: 8530 Condition: 5
Deck: 8 Category: 5B Location: Forward
  Sail Date: 03/31/12   

Notes: Quiet room in excellent location. Housekeeping access across the hall rather than staterooms. This area is "active" only during luggage distribution and collection, so for the majority of the cruise, traffic in this hallway is very limited. Above and below are staterooms so there is no mechanical or common area noise. Stateroom is starboard with excellent views of ports such as Castaway Cay. Forward location allows quick access to theaters, adult pool areas and Vibe. Room is slightly smaller with less drawer/cabinet space than equivalent category in the Wonder/Magic. There is, however, additional storage space under the bed and the coffee "table" is actually a trunk-like storage area. Highly recommend.

Deck: 8 Category: R Location: Mid
  Sail Date: 04/16/11   

Notes: Fantastic accomodations! The 2 bedroom layout provides plenty of space and privacy. Having 2 showers and 3 toilets was a true luxury travelling with 3 women. The midship location was very convienient to everything. We did not notice any problems with noise. Our hostess Margaret and concierge manager Andreia were wonderful. If there was any 'negatives' at all, it would be that the wavephones did not work in the suite, I had to walk outside of it to get a signal. I missed the concierge lounge setup from the Dream. I especially missed the hi end coffee/espresso/cappucino maker in the lounge! The concierge hosts try to make themselves accessible but one day there was a glitch ... problem with the phone number, was constantly busy without going to voicemail and I could not get a hold of her for a few hours. I called guest services who had the other concierge host call me but we played a little phone tag. On the Dream, there are one of the hosts at the desk in lounge all day until 10pm But beside that, our recent western was the BEST cruise we have taken so far and the suite enhanced the enjoyment. We love the Roy, love the dark wood tones, love the starboard views at CC and ports.

Notes: We enjoyed this stateroom. It was close to the aft elevator and stairs, but not noisy. It had a pull-down bunk and views of Castaway Cay when we were docked. There was a connecting door to the next stateroom, if you wanted to travel with someone else. Already booked this room for our next cruise.

Deck: 8 Category: 1 Location: Mid
  Sail Date: 07/18/09   

Notes: Everything was fantastic. Make sure on the very first day you get the concierge phone number. We did not and it made for some problems the first day (i.e. not enough adult life vests). After we got that number we had no problems at all - a simply phone call fixed anything and everything. Some perks of this room included all the soda/water you want, breakfast from Lumi�re's, dinner from Palo (no extra charge),a multi-page list of DVD�s to order and watch (delivered with popcorn), H20 Products everyday in both bathroom, fresh flowers in stateroom, a fruit basket on first day, special treats that you ordered daily to be delivered either at 4:30 or 6:30. Continental breakfast at your choice of dining times the morning of debarking. A lounge chair on the deck for lounging on, along with 4 regular chairs and 2 tables. We also had robes and slippers delivered for all staying in the room the night we sailed away. The kids even had gift cards to the arcade left in the room for them one day. There is also a cabinet with about 9 games (i.e. scrabble), and some of them even had the original shrink wrap on them. A card was delivered nightly with the weather report and sunrise/sunset times for the next day every night. 2 cloth laundry bags were also left daily. There is also a very large light over your doorway in the hall, so you always knew exactly where your room was as you walked down the hall. There is a special concierge gathering for guests in cats 1-3 on Thursday night at topsiders � includes drinks (both alcoholic and on alcoholic) finger type foods and visits from special characters, and also the captain. Storage was wonderful � there is a butlers pantry (extra frig in there!) that we stored all our luggage in. Laundry room was one floor down and to the right and down the hall (bring your stateroom card, the machines no longer take cash) You did hear some noise from deck 9, but not enough to ruin sleeping or conversations during the day. You can actually sleep 2 in the master, 2 in the Murphy bed, 4 in the twin bedroom (2 pull down berths), and 1 on the couch for a total of 9 if you needed room for 9. We had 6 in the room, and we did not feel crowded at all. Nicole (our concierge) seemed to anticipate any of our needs before we even had them. If you are lucky enough to get Nicole, your stay will be wonderful. Our stateroom host was Benny, and he did an outstanding job. The only negative was the gathering as soon as you got on board � you immediately went to Beat Street � I�d say skip it! The people there were not very organized � your concierge person is not there, and they can do a much better job of making your reservations/changes/etc then the crew members who were there could. I was not impressed, and as this is supposed to be your first impression, it left a lot to be desired. All in all, if you can get this room � I�d do it again in a heartbeat!

Ship: Disney Magic Stateroom: 8530 Condition: 5
Deck: 8 Category: 1 Location: Mid
  Sail Date: 12/06/08   

Notes: This room is incredible!! We got it through an upgrade at port from a Cat 6 room for our family of 4. The separate bedroom for the kids with the two shorter than normal twins was perfect for our 2 and 4 year old to sleep on, and the bedrail provided by our stateroom hostess was perfect for the 2 year old to keep her from falling out of bed! The separate room was wonderful during naps as we didn't have to tiptoe around the room while the kids slept. Having a walk in closet and plenty of drawers for the kids was also a big plus. They also had kid sized robes (1 pink and 1 green) that worked out well too. The master bedroom was great though the drawers beside the bed, in the bathroom and in the closet all stick a bit and show some wear and team. There is also some corrosion around the shower base but the bathroom stayed dry as long as you pulled the shower door tight. There are 4 flat screen TVs in the suite and at least 3 DVD players. Plus a Bose sound system on the main TV. The living room also had a couch and two leather chairs with ottomans, and there were two additional chairs in the library. Our stateroom hostess Jerryll did a great job keeping the whole suite clean and tidy and did wonderful towel animals in both bedrooms each night. The drawbacks of the suite include the noise from Deck 9 above. Especially over the living room. You can really hear them walk, run and talk up there, and especially hear it when they move furniture around up there and roll carts around deck. Also, we were told we'd be able to see the fireworks from our verandah, but we really couldn't see much of them because we were too high up on the ship and deck 9 overhang was too large, blocking most of the fireworks from view. We also had a lot of motion on our cruise, and the wood in the room creaks very badly, especially around the Murphy bed. We could also have used some doorstops, as the doors all around the suite would swing open and closed as the ship rocked. The door to the kids room also needs some grease as it squeaks. There was also a slight odor in the pantry, and one day we had some serious smoke fumes coming in through a vent from the deck above. But overall, it is an incredible room and I'd sail in it again in a heartbeat!

Ship: Disney Magic Stateroom: 8530 Condition: 5
Deck: 8 Category: 1 Location: Mid
  Sail Date: 07/22/06   

Notes: Very convenient to elevators and stairs at mid-ship. We were booked for a category 3 and went on the waiting list and was called 2 months before saildate and upgraded. The room was amazing with plenty of room. Door has doorbell and as you walk in there is a 1/2 bath to your right with storage space across from that.Behind the 1/2 there is a wet bar that we just closed up and used for all the empty luggage.There was a living room with a sofa, 2 chairs, coffeetable, TV, DVD, VCR, and stereo in the living room. On the left side of the living room there was another wet bar with refrigerator. To the left of the livingroom there was a library with sleeper sofa, and a chair, with books and games. Behind the library was the master suite with kingsize bed, vanity table, and two large closets. The master bath has two sinks, shower and a whirlpool tub. To the right of the living room was the dining room with a table that seats eight. Behind the dingroom is another bedroom with two twin beds that can be put together, with a walk-in closet and another full bathroom. The balconey is large with two lounge chairs and two chairs. It did creak a bit at night if we had rough seas, due to the extensive use of wood throughout the room. Also when they cleaned the deck above you could hear them stacking the chairs at night. Great view of Cozumel and Castaway Cay from the verandah.Very convenient location to the pools and plenty of room. I only wish I could book this room for every cruise.If you have any questions you can contact me!!Happy Sailing!!!!

Deck: 8 Category: 1 Location: Forward
  Sail Date: 11/13/05   

Notes: While we were THRILLED to have a Disney Suite, I made the silly mistake of assuming that it would be spectacular. The space is wonderful and we truly appreciated all the room, the suite itself left a few bad tastes in our mouth. The first thing was the smell in the master suite. Oh my goodness! It was awful! I immediately sprayed stink spray thinking someone had just used our potty-WRONG! The concierge sent up a plumber, then an engineer, but no success. The contents of the belly of the ship were being stirred up as we started to sail and all the gases were coming in through the vent. The whole master suite smelled. We ended up having to cover the vent with towels to keep the smell to a minimum. The bathroom also had broken fixtures on the sinks. There was a TV missing from the Library and the entertainment center doors had been broken off and not replaced. The living room couch had doodling on it in ball point pen (who would do that?), but all in all, we were Disney's for a week and can get you down when your in the Disney Suite! Having the large deck was great! Going in to port we could sit at a table or relax on the deck chair with our room service coffee and wave at people on the other ships! Having breakfast delivered and sitting at a dining table was lovely! We enjoyed the room immensely! The room was just around the corner from the midship elevators and there was no noise from the hall or from the elevators during our trip. There were several doorbell ditchers (Yes, there are doorbells on the suites!), but we got used to it! The butlers pantry was perfect for storing luggage and all the purchases we made! There was plenty of room and we loved that! Someone could go to bed while others stayed up watching a movie or go out without ever disturbing the rest of us. One of the funny things we didn't realize was that the suite has pocket doors at the library. During the rocky times at sea we would have to block the pocket doors with ottoman to stop the pocket doors from sliding into each other! This only happened coming and going across the Florida Straights, but it made us giggle watching them open and close on their own! The suite was a great experience and the concierge service made it a spectacular trip!

Ship: Disney Wonder Stateroom: 8530 Condition: 4
Deck: 8 Category: 1 Location: Mid
  Sail Date: 07/03/05   

Notes: It's beautiful. We had 4 adult and 3 kids. The adults took the master and murphy bed rooms and the kids had the second bedroom with the pull down berths. I was worried about the glass doors on the murphy bed room, but it was completely private. There was plenty of clothing storage in the bedrooms and the pantry room off the main hallway was great for storing suitcases. The dining room sat all of us comfortably. The verandah is huge. I would say our only complaint was the noise from people running on deck 9. There very slight wear and tear/water damage in the bathrooms, but everything else was in mint condition. Enjoy!
