Well at last I found a good quality picture of the aft of the Dream, looking at it I couldn't help but notice the deck 8, 9A aft wraps are in fact, not wraps.

LINK

To me it looks like a divider cuts into the balcony before before the balcony wraps around and the 2 8C cabins have a wrap balcony.

Needless to say the deck plans show the 9A's as having the wrap, but the pictures clearly show they don't.

Or am I seeing things ?

Oh here is another picture, if you zoom in a little the divider is clearly there.

Just had a thought, I guess this means that the 8C's are now the bargain cabin to grab on the Dream, shame our friends already have them for our cruise

Am I losing my mind here ? Deck 8, two decks down from the lido.
You will see the door then two windows with lights on, that is the 9A, now to me that is a divider cutting across the balcony, though I will say, it is 3.20am here, so I could just be going crazy

I have the 8 D on the 9th floor, which looks like it is missing windows, but so dark and hard to see, there was a huge price difference in that wrap so I am not sure what I am missing, any suggestions

I see what you refer to, but it is not what you think. Go to your 2nd photo. Look at the last (farthest aft) Stbd side Deck 6&7 balconies, the last ones before you get to the 9A's. You can clearly see the divider placement there. The Deck 8 divider above it is hanging open, but is still in the same relative position. This makes the 9a on deck 8 stbd side still a wrap, the port side can be assumed to be symmetrical (but who knows), so the port cabin shrinkage may just be an illusion due to the angles, like holding a fish at arms length to make it look bigger.

Don't know, there is a full wrap on it, a pole in the middle of the balcony.

Looking at the picture taken at night the only real wrap is the one on deck 7, the one on deck 6 kind of wraps and the 8D on 9 wraps around as well, but deck 8 stops before there is any wrap around.

Snorkel, I see what your saying, but to me that wrap part is actually the balcony to 8469, the deck plans do show that has a larger than normal balcony.

The daylight picture showing the port side shows a divider before the hull curves around, from what I see.

I seriously need to figure out how to put a nice red circle around what I am talking about.

I am searching for more pictures now.

Ok I just checked through shipspotting, those are the best ones, I guess more will show up.

make sure you click on the picture of the ship as it will enlarge it so that you can see things really well.
Clicking to enlarge, deck 6 and deck 7 look like full aft wraps, but I agree, Dave, deck 8 doesn't look the same!

We always try and book Deck 7. When we saw the plans for the Dream, and we found out Lido was Deck 10 we told our TA we wanted Deck 8. She said no trust me you still want the wrap on Deck 7. Glad we listened to her!! She is a great TA!!!

That pictured helped. I saved it onto my desktop and opened it with Windows Picture Viewer and zoomed in on the decks. Deck 8 the cabin on the port side gets the wrap while on deck 6 it looks like the balcony is larger but it does not "wrap" that much. Deck 7 looks like the only full aft wrap cabin to me...

I'm booked in one of the extended balconies at the side (the L shaped cabins) and it looks like the cabins that are that far back are going to be able to look down to the water. Anyone else notice that?

Yup - we are in 8466 - I was so hoping that this was the best cabin to book as our friends are right next to us aft and another couple next to them. It would be too late to change now Hopefully you'll come back from your cruise with high marks for this cabin. Have a great time!!!
