Charms and Delights Issues and Drawbacks
Outside Stateroom Suites With Verandahs (categories R, S, & T)
Huge staterooms, some with room for up to 7 people (Magic Class) or 5 (Dream Class). Separate bedroom and sitting areas. DVD and CD players, duvets, pillow choices, walk-in closets, wet bars, and some whirlpool tubs. Extra-large verandahs. Concierge, 120-day advance activity reservations, and expanded room service. Very expensive, and deals are almost never offered. Very popular and are booked far in advance. There are only 22 suites (deck 8 on Magic Class; decks 11 & 12 on Dream Class). Most cat. T suites have a pull-down bed in the master bedroom (Magic Class). Can be noisy when crew is cleaning deck 9 above (Magic Class). Non-refundable deposit.
Outside Staterooms With Verandahs (categories 4–7, V)
Verandahs! It’s like having a private deck to watch waves or gaze at passing scenery. And the wall-to-wall glass adds light and a sense of extra space. Located on decks 5 and up, close to all activities. Categories 4 and V are larger and sleep 4–5; the others sleep 3–4. Staterooms are 214–256 sq. ft. excluding balcony. Category V includes Concierge benefits. Still on the pricey side, and may be out of range for many vacationers. Sitting and sleeping areas are in the same room. Category 5–7 layouts and interior square areas are identical to category 9. Wind and/or bad weather can make the verandah unusable. Category 7 on the Magic Class sleeps only 3. Category 4E (Dream Class) sleeps only 4.
Outside Staterooms With Portholes (categories 8–9)
Portholes! Some natural sunlight and the ability to see where you are. These rooms are also more affordable than verandah rooms. Most sleep 4. All have split bathrooms. Portholes on decks 2 and up are picture-window-sized. Category 8 on the Dream Class is the larger, Family configuration, 241 sq. ft., sleeps 4-5. Category 9 on the Magic Class is 214 sq. ft. Category 9 on the Dream Class is 204 sq. ft. No verandahs. Category 9 rooms on deck 1 (Magic Class) are harder to reach. Category 9 rooms on deck 2 are good on all ships. While the Dream Class category 8 & 9B, 9C, and 9D staterooms are on higher decks, they’re located far forward or far aft (though 9C & 9D have views forward, which are nice). Sitting and sleeping areas are in the same room.
Inside Staterooms (categories 10–11)
The least expensive staterooms available. Some rooms sleep up to 4. Category 10 has the same square footage as category 9. Some category 10–11 staterooms are on decks 5–7 (5-9, Dream Class). Six staterooms in category 10A on the Magic Class have an obstructed porthole (bonus!). Same access to the ship as higher categories. Staterooms on the Dream Class include the “virtual porthole.” No daylight, making the rooms seem smaller and dark. Smaller room size (169-184 sq. ft.) for category 11. Category 11C rooms sleep no more than 3. All staterooms in category 11C are on deck 2, and there are few staterooms in this category (making them harder to get). Category 11 doesn’t have split bathrooms (see explanation on page 147).
