Notes: This room was excellent. This is the last room prior to a door to the outside, adult only area, no noise from outside although occasionally heard the door slam. Across the hall was the housekeeping closet. We did not hear any noise from the hall or the closet. However, our room steward, Bennie was very friendly, and made it a point to say hello at every opportunity. The concierge staff Ashley, Linda & Andy were awesome, very helpful, very friendly, very attentive. My only complaint was that the fridge for the sodas was hard to get open in the concierge lounge. Concierge lounge has the best coffee on the ship, actually individually brewed cups from beans. Evening drink selection was limited, but snacks were good. Had to stop on our way to the shows/movies for popcorn! Others reported the power washing equipment which worried us, but we don't recall this obstructing our view much, the wall between the next veranda blocked the views more. There were no issues with the room, or bathrooms, although a chair magically appeared one day mid cruise. The split bathroom was great for getting ready. Unfortunately, the weather wasn't cooperative for long stays out on the veranda, was so looking forward to morning coffee out there. Not far from the bar, smoking area, or soda fountain on deck 11, Cabanas is close too. Could not see Castaway Cay while docked, only the dock. More than likely could have seen some of the fireworks from the veranda, but took part in the deck party. Room came with slippers and robes, don't take them you will be charged, had a small fridge under the desk for some drinks. Bed was a queen sized and very comfortable. Barely felt the ship move at all. There are not many outlets near the bed, 1 each side, 1 taken up with clock and wave phone, but plenty on the desk. Plenty of closet space and under bed storage. This was our first cruise and looking forward to returning to the Dream next year.

Notes: It was an excellent room. Comfortable beds. Only one room to the right of us and only heard them when we were both on the verandah. The cleaning closet was across the hall but never heard anything. Around 1130 every night heard them cleaning the outside deck for about 5 minutes. (At least it sounded like a squeegee) but that was all we heard. On the verandah the machine that helps to clean the ship is there but it did not block our view. We could even see the fireworks from our verandah. We had 3 adults and a 5 yr old and was very comfortable. I would say the only unconvenience was in the morning trying to put the bed back in the couch. It was heavy and we only ever pushed it back far enough so we could get ready. Bath room and shower were separate. The shower had a seat off to the side and the bottom could be used as a tub. Our hostesses were excellent. The concierge was excellent and my son loved them. We are booking again in 2016. And would definantly take this room again. Oh and when you come out of the room to the left is a door that you can go out onto the deck. A few doors to the right is the concierge and the elevators. We never heard anyone coming on and off the elevators or the adult bar above us.

Notes: Great stateroom. Farthest aft concierge stateroom. Easy access to deck 12 above the adults only area. Stateroom Host closet directly across. Mostly not noisy. The power washing cart is parked right next to the balcony. Sort of a problem because you can't see the aft of the ship. Easy access to the Concierge Lounge. PJ, Kemisha, and Julia were the Concierge team on this cruise. Always gave the kids some special treats (arcade cards, smoothies, popcorn, etc...) The room also came with bathrobes and slippers in the closet with the safe. The KTTW cards were gold to show that we were concierge guests. No gates on the Fantasy.The view from the room while in port is amazing. The room is located starboard. The ship backs into Castaway Cay so you can see the whole island. In Grand Cayman you can see some of the Island depending on how the ship is anchored. Concierge guests get the first tenders to Grand Cayman. Great overall experience. I'd book this room again.

Notes: Loved the room. It does have a few very minor issues though. The good - It slept 3 adults and a two year old very comfortably. The bed is amazing and there was plenty of storage. The additional TV opposite the main bed is great. The rain shower is incredible. Being the most aft concierge room, there is immediate access to the outdoors and nothing is far away. It also only has another stateroom on one side, which is nice. It was very quiet. Also it had an excellent view of the Pirate Night fireworks from the balcony, even though there was a note left that said don't use the balcony during the fireworks. It would have taken a miraculous accident to have had a fireworks accident on that balcony, and no one shooed us away. I imagine the note was a legal cover your butt for DCL. The drawbacks: 1. There is a public ladies restroom on the other side of this stateroom. I could hear no plumbing sounds at any point during the cruise, but during the daytime I could hear the thunk of the restroom door closing. It wasn't loud, but it was there. Since that restroom serves the adult area on deck twelve, it was not a high traffic area, so the restroom was not used at nighttime. 2. The pressure washing rig that hangs off of the side of the ship is parked jut ft of this stateroom so you get to look at it the entire cruise. It is only moved on port days for cleaning the exterior of the ship. It wasn't a big deal for me, but it does slightly obstruct the view aft down the side of the ship. My thought was, they have the entire side of the ship to store this thing, why would they park it next to a concierge stateroom? 3. The room is directly across from the cabin attendant's storeroom. It was never an issue. Never heard the door and while it was open sometimes, when they were cleaning, it was neat and orderly. One final word about the room, I have it booked again, but am looking to move to one of the rooms with an extended verandah further forward. If neither of those rooms become available I would be more than happy with this room.

Notes: Concierge level well worth it as the the service and extra perks were great. Super easy access to deck 12 and 11 by adult pool and very close to elevators. Starboard side views of CC and fireworks were also a plus. Did not have any issues with noise or motion being in the front of ship. Room space handled 5, 2 adults and 3 teenagers.

Notes: Aft cabin made exit easy through a door onto deck 12 above the adult pool area, rather than always having to navigate the gates. We upgraded at port from a 5A and for that small amount, it was worth the cost for the lounge and slightly larger room. Not sure it's worth full price, but your mileage may vary. We have sailed Cats 3, 2, 1 on the Wonder and the concierge rooms are different on the Dream. The Royal is much bigger than on the Wonder/Magic. The T is like a Cat 3, no Cat 2s IMHO. Handicap accessible V seemed much larger than ours was.
