Verandahs—All staterooms in categories 7 and up have a private verandah. A heavy, sliding glass door opens to reveal a deck as wide as your stateroom. Dividers offer privacy from your neighbors and the deck overhead protects you from most of the elements. The sliding door has a child-resistant latch that can be difficult to open at first—the trick is to grasp the handle and pull hard without turning. Turn the handle horizontally to lock the sliding door. Two plastic/fabric chairs and a small table are on most verandahs. Two deck lights are controlled by a switch inside the stateroom (look behind the curtains). The deck can be slippery, and the railing can be sticky from salty, moist air. Most verandahs have a clear plexiglass-and-metal railing that you can see through, while some staterooms in the aft have a solid railing—see photos on page 138. If you leave your verandah door open, your room can get warm and muggy quickly if you're in a hot climate. Parents should always supervise children when they’re on the verandah. When our son was three years old, he was able to climb up onto the arm of a deck chair within seconds—it’s a very good thing we were right there to get him down! If you are concerned about kids climbing on the deck furniture, you may ask to have it removed. Update: Tables on most verandahs were removed for safety concerns as of early 2017, but you may request a table on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Voice Mail—As previously mentioned on page 153, each stateroom has its own voice mail. A red light on your phone will blink when you have a message—to check your message(s), just pick up the phone and press the “Messages” button. You can also personalize your outgoing message by following the prompts when you click “Messages.” If you are on the phone when a call comes in, the voice mail system still takes your caller’s message. We use the voice mail system quite a bit to stay in touch with one another—it’s easy to pick up a “house phone” anywhere on board to leave a message with details on where we are and what we’re doing. You may prefer to use Wave phones or Disney Cruise Line Navigator app to reach people directly, rather than leave voice mail (see page 153).

Wake-Up Calls—A digital alarm clock is provided in your stateroom, but you may prefer to set wake-up calls from your stateroom phone. Try it at least once—Mickey Mouse himself calls you! Alternatives to the wake-up call service are to bring your own alarm clock, set the alarm on a portable electronic device you may have brought with you (such as a laptop, iPod, or iPhone), or preorder room service for breakfast (a crew member may even give you a reminder call before delivery).
