Disney Cruise Line - Disney Dream
submitted by Krisha Bursch Travel Monticello
What an awesome experience! I took my mom and my 2 kids who are ages 11 & 9 on the Disney Dream! We were one of the first to sail on the beautiful ship. We stayed 1 night at the Contemporary before getting on the ship and I was really impressed with the updates they have done on their rooms. Now they are I guess you could say very contemporary again!
We took the Disney Cruise Line bus from the resort to the port and boarded the ship. The sheer size of this ship made your mouth drop! As we walked on board the ship the grand entrance of them announcing your family name as you entered the ship. We could still smell the fresh paint. The innovations that this ship has is truly amazing! Disney's dinning is different than other ships you have a rotational dinning and you will eat in 3 different dinner locations. Each restaurant has it's own unique features and characteristics. One of my favorites is Animators Palate with Crush from finding Nemo that interacts with you while you dine. The Dream has pictures that can tell a story. This ship is the only ship to have a 3-D movie theater and the Aqua Duck, the water roller coaster that goes out over the ocean. What an awesome ride!
The cabins are state of the art with very little detail taken care of. The innovations of each of the kids clubs are so unique. The kids club still has its favorites from the computers to making flubber. They have a nice sports area on the top deck along with a mini golf course. With all of this who would want to leave the ship? We stopped in the Bahamas and went and did a little shopping and than we got right back on the boat to enjoy everything. Castaway Cay is Disney's private island and there has been a lot of great updates including brand new waterslides that are right in the ocean. They have added another Cookies BBQ giving another place to eat on the island. They have added private beach cabanas some on the adult only side and some on the family beach side. Lots of new games and a splash park for the young kids.
We had award winning Broadway shows at night with an true Disney pirate party! So much to see and do on this cruise! I don't want to give away all the secrets to this amazing adventure and that is truly what this ship is an adventure!
I would love to help you plan your next family adventure!
