A "Dream" Cruise Vacation

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Disney Dream | Sail Date: Mar 02, 2014


Our family cruise was wonderful> Can"t say enough about the entire trip. The crew was perfect. The only change I would like to see is spending two days at the private island instead of a day at sea . The castaway cay island was the "gold star" of thge trip for the entire family.

A Great Thrill for Grandparents

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Disney Dream | Sail Date: Feb 16, 2014


It was wonderful for my husband and myself to see our 4 grandchilren all at the same place at the same time having a wonderful time.  As we grow older we realize that these are the special times in our lives and we want to make the most of it.  Having our children was great too but nothing compares to 4 bright shiny faces looking at you with broad smiles.  It was a wonderful opportunity for all of us.  Here's to future Disney cruises.

Disney Dream

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Disney Dream | Sail Date: Feb 02, 2014


We enjoy the trip , we were a party of 8 adults plus 8 children. The quality of the food was good the only problem we experienced are the pools ( too small  for qty of people in the cruise )

The crew was A1 and we feel very well.

Disappointed!

Ship: Disney Dream | Sail Date: Dec 01, 2013


Been on 3 Disney Cruises, this one seemed unorganized. My daughter also a 3x cruiser & I took this cruise as a get-a-way from the family. I am 75 and handicapped. I asked for a handicap room with balcony as always. I requested it and explained I had a scooter.  Couldn't even get my scooter in the room. Bathrooms were very little and the step up and also step in the shower/tub was way too high for me.  On Castaway Island there was all shredded clear plastic along the coastline on the adult beach. They knew we were coming why couldn't that have been cleared away? Never seen anything like that before I got tangled in it and a fine gentleman and his wife seen me struggling so much he had to come help me out of the water. I would go on the Magic again, but not the Dream and the Fantasy ship for the extra money does not interest me. I have traveled the Royal Carb. and Norweign lines before, but always fall back to the Disneyline til now. The food was tastey, but not a big selection as the other cruises we took. This cruise was not at all for a disabled, older person. The seams connecting the floor across the doorways kept catching the undercarriage of my scooter. I've had trouble since. I had to be pushed over each one. Not always does the helpers push the back on the scooter, but my back and was I sore, and shoulders. It was an awful price for parking, handicap $95 at Miami the handicap parking is free. On 3 Cruises my daughter & I never got to a Captain's Dinner. The return Cruisers get a gift, sorry, but a back pack is not for my age.

DCL Disney Dream first class all the way.

Ship: Disney Dream | Sail Date: Dec 01, 2013


I took my family on our first cruise with Disney Cruise Line on the Disney Dream in December 2013.  Everything about the ship, the crew and our experience was first class 5 stars the entire trip!  My children keep talking about the Disney Dream and they want to go back.  I like the kids club, that they were safe, entertained and cared for while we parents could enjoy some alone time together.  I also appreciated that there was no casino gaming on board; some people might want it, but I think that would detract from the majesty of the ship.  The cleanliness of the ship was always impecable, the food and service was above excellent and the state rooms were wonderful.  We are looking forward to our next opportunity to enjoy our vacation aboard Disney Cruise Line.

Best Cruise I Could Ever Dream Of!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Disney Dream | Sail Date: Nov 27, 2013


They say a picture is worth a 1000 words...this picture doesn't even begin to describe our wonderful vacation on the Disney Dream. From the time we boarded the ship until the very last day, our entire cruise was magical. The Disney Cast members were all very wonderful and friendly, treating us like we were the celebrities instead of just people. The activities on board were endless, including the activities for the children of all ages (yes, us adults, too!) The food was magnificent, as well as the service. Our stateroom host was the best, always keeping our room clean and leaving us magical gifts in our room. If you are looking for a fun, adventurous, all-inclusive cruise, this is it! You can't get any better than Disney!!

First cruise and even though I had to pay the double occupancy rate to go solo, I would do it again in a hearbeat.  Service was fantastic, crew was very sociable, food was great.

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Disney Dream | Sail Date: Apr 03, 2014


I was truly impressed with this cruise.  There were plenty of activities for the kids to do so my husband and I were able to spend lots of time by ourselves as well.  The service was wonderful and the food was great.  I would highly recommend.

Best Vacation Ever!!!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Disney Dream | Sail Date: Mar 06, 2014


It was WONDERFUL....worth every penny.  Beautiful ship....with all of those kids running around the cleanliness was unbelievable.  Top notch customer service; they thought of every little detail.  The ship is huge and tons of activities both kid and adult only friendly so you don't feel crowded.  Disney's private island is beautiful.  It has adults only beaches and you can drop your little ones off with no extra charge. Large selection of food (healthy options as well). I would highly recommend it!!

Disney Dream Cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Disney Dream | Sail Date: Feb 13, 2014


The Disney Dream lives up to its title. I did a 3 day Bahamas and Cast away Cay sailing Feb,2014. I cruised with 6 passengers 3 in each stateroom. One navigators verandah the other a family verandah. The family stateroom was larger with a larger balcony but the navigator size was big enough and was partially covered with a partition. The partition worked well as a cover due to very high winds the final night. I have cruised Carnival,Norwegian and Royal Caribean without any problems. No ship I have ever been on was as clean as the Dream. There was so much for everyone to do. The 70 something's loved bingo and the spa. Myself and the other 40 something loved the spa and the adult only areas. The kids 11 and 13 loved the aqua coaster and pools. We all loved the shows the 1st run movies in the beautiful movie theatre and a different live show every night,lots of family time games and dances.   The pirate party and von voyage party were  super fun for all ages. Room service was awesome the cheese tray with fruit plate divine. The cons the kids were bored with the kids clubs and thought Edge was boring as well. Dinner in the rotating dining rooms was nice to look at but food was just so so. 1 waiter and 1 assistant for 6 people with a 4 course dinner makes service slow. However food at the buffet was always fresh,hot and good  with more than enough staff. Cast away Cay was stunning and we had great time even though those high winds kept the beach closed. I am not a huge fan of Nassua so I will not comment on it. I got home from my Dream cruise and started looking at Disney for a 7 night aailing. Big SmileGreat cruise pricey but worth it.

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Disney Dream | Sail Date: Dec 19, 2013


 

For this being our 1st cruise- we really enjoyed ourselves! Loved every moment. My son enjoyed most the kids club!!! Open from 9am-12am for his specific age group. The different pool areas were also a favorite of ours! I do NOT swim at all- but I found myself in a swimsuit & in the water everyday of my vacation! The rooms were nice! We had a category 4b room with balcony which was very private! Te room was also spacious.
