Disney Cruise Line’s third ship, the Disney Dream, has made magical memories for its passengers from their exquisite entertainment to their delectable dining.
Comprising of 14 decks, there are many activities and events going on throughout the ship at all times. The ship whose length of 1,115 feet and width of 125 feet contains 1,250 staterooms, and it can comfortably accomodate 4,000 passengers along with a staff of 1,458 crew members.
The dining aboard the Disney Dream and other Disney Cruise ships has been loved and appreciated by many, including myself. It includes seven complimentary dining areas: Animator’s Palate, Cabanas, Eye Scream Treats and Frozone Treats, Enchanted Garden, Flo’s Cafe, Room Service, and Royal Palace. All serving areas include a variety of dining options and are inspired by different styles of Disney.
As far as entertainment, Disney will always prevail. Offers to play new releases of Disney movies, as well as adored classics, can be found in the Buena Vista Theater. If you are interested in lavish, innovative Disney Broadway productions, you can enjoy a performance at the large Walt Disney Theater every night before or after your dinner servings.
If you are an adult, do not think for one minute that Disney will not cater to your adult time. Parents can enjoy their time aboard without their kids in the ship’s numerous nightclubs and lounges: 687, Bon Voyage, Cove Café, Currents, District Lounge, Meridian, Evolution, Pink, Skyline, Vista Café, and Waves are all adult-only clubs that serve alcohol, music, entertainment, and the right atmosphere to mingle with other adults.
Like all cruises, the Disney Dream does not fail to include the most amusing, lively and relaxing pools to sail the seas, not to mention the first Disney cruise to include an on-board water slide called the Aqua-Duck.
The family pool, Donald’s pool, the children’s pool, Mickey’s pool, the water play area, Nemo’s Reef, and the adults-only pool Quiet Cove Pool are all fantastic ways to spend your days at sea in the beautiful weather with your loved ones.
Last, but certainly not least, Disney takes great pride in their youth clubs to keep the kids busy and let the adults enjoy their alone time. The clubs include “It’s a Small World Nursery” for the infants, “Disney’s Oceaneer Club” for toddlers and young children, “Disney’s Oceaneer Lab” for middle-aged children, “Edge” for pre-teens, and “Vibe” for teenagers. All clubs include dedicated and child-friendly staff members who help children explore their imagination and make new cruise friends.
The Disney Dream is not a vacation to miss; it is extremely family-friendly. Disney will never disappoint from their variety of entertainment to their friendly accommodating staff who seem to never have a bad day. If you are a Disney fan, the Disney Dream is a must for you and your family, and will create memories to last a lifetime.
