Disney Dream

May 2014 - Disney Dream to Caribbean - Bahamas

25th Anniversary and first cruise!

Everything about this trip was amazing and we can't wait to cruise again with Disney! The excursions were wonderful (we did the sea lion encounter at Atlantis and spent the day feeding sting rays, biking and lounging on the adult only beach on Castaway Cay), the staff were all very friendly, the food was out of this world, the ship was clean and beautiful...I don't have enough space for all the good I want to say!

Here's why we didn't give it a full 5 stars: while we appreciate the diversity of the staff (everybody's name tag showed their country of origin and there were folks from ALL over the world!), this presented a significant language barrier in probably 40-50% of our interactions. It really created some stress. Also, our "cabin host" (housekeeping) didn't get our verbal and nonverbal cues when we didn't have time to stand around and chat. Finally, there was a mix up at Atlantis: some of us were not alerted when the bus left the cruise ship to take us to the resort. To their credit, someone from Disney did happen to notice the group of us standing around and eventually got us where we needed to be!

The best parts: the view from our stateroom veranda, Palo' s restaurant (thank you for a wonderful experience with our amazing waiter Luis), Castaway Cay, the sea lion encounter at Atlantis, and our awesome waiters Charlie and Galan!  We are definitely hooked on Disney cruises and will see you again soon for a cruise to Alaska!

dwren66's Tips

Nassau, Bahamas - Definitely do Atlantis! Both the dolphin and the sea lion encounters were super fun! Photos cost an arm and a leg however!
Disney Dream Disney Dream - For breakfast at Cabanas, go all the way to the rear of the buffet for a great selection of fresh fruit and slightly "lighter fare"!
