Just booked a B2B on the Dream and decided to give the Cove Balcony a try. Anyone here been in the Cove's before? We booked 2250 which is under the Shore Excursion Desk, so it should be very quiet.
Cruising with the wife and 12yr daughter.
Thanks for all the input and if your going to be on this cruise or the 12/22/12 Christmas cruise, leave a reply and lets connect.
After checking the deck plan, I think that 2250 will be a good cabin. We like the Cove Balconies. The last one we were in (2414) was VERY noisy, but that's unusual. You may hear noise in the late morning and the early evening, but I would think that other times would be quiet. I'll be interested in hearing about your cabin when you return !

Coves are great. Only on deck 2 and they don't go so far forward or aft to where you would notice anchor or thruster noise. Sometimes there might be noise from the kitchen above. The views are amazing, especially if you are lucky enough to see dolphins or other wildlife swimming/flying along with the ship.
We loved the cove balcony. We had great weather and never had to have the door sealed off. I loved being right over the water. To me it was much better than one of the balconies on the upper levels. Would book one again without a moment's thought should I have the chance.
