It's not nice when our plans get unexpectedly tossed around! We had to make a couple of adjustments too. I hope you'll enjoy the Dream as much as we did, she's a nice ship. I wouldn't want a balcony overlooking the lanai but the coves are great.
We had cove 2349 which was in a quiet location and not nearly as wet as those further forward in rough seas. I couldn't say one thing that we didn't like about the cove, it really felt like we were cruising while on the balcony so close to the water
We purchased the weekly spa package for 2 and highly recommend it if you're into relaxing time too. Trying a spa balcony on our next one, hope we like it as much as the cove.
Really liked the crew on the Dream too, you'll have a great time!
