Disney Dream - A Wonderful Voyage

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Everything was wonderful.  The ship, Disney employees (seen and unseen), Castaway Cay, entertainment, food, activities, memories. Escorting to front of theater for live entertainment was very much appreciated.  Only challenge was getting an elevator since I use either a walker or wheelchair and many seemingly able bodied people rush to use elevators.Sad

Our first cruise and it exceeded our dreams

Can I count the ways in which this cruise excelled?  1.  Beautiful, polished ship with personalized service akin to having your own butler throughout the trip.   2.  Cute and well-designed stateroom.  Even though we went with only a deluxe/family porthole, not a verandah type, the porthole was almost floor-to-ceiling with a moon-seat---so much fun and great for taking in the views!  There is efficient storage throughout, with shelves and racks much better than in hotel rooms twice the size.  Our family of four could have moved in for a month (and I think we just might next time)!  3.  Convenient daily schedule with character appearances noted, so you'll never miss your favorites.  This part is better than the Disney parks.  The characters spend time with your kids and the photographers have good technology.  4.  Entertaining dining experiences with costumed and personable staff.  Great breakfast buffet/other dining benues, too.  5.  Free ice cream machines, both on the ship and Castaway Cay!  6.  Relaxed and thoroughly perfect Disney-quality resort experience on Castaway Cay.  We live in Hawaii and love Aulani, and Castaway has a similarly-wonderful vibe but with different activities.  Even simple things like the bike rentals around the island made my kids' day.  7.  Excellent  live entertainment and new/current first-run movies!  8.  Super children's drop-off centers.  My little one loved the Oceaneers' Club and Lab, My tween didn't plan on taking advantage of the Edge, but when she tried it she loved it and went back for hours.  9.  Mini golf, shuffleboard, and scavenger hunt games with mysteries that come alive in paintings throughout the ship.  10.  I could go on and on but will stop at 10:  the AquaDuck ride--our favorite!

This cruise was awesome! My kids had a great time while on board the ship.  The games for the adults was also great.  The food each day was also awesome.  Our Server Bertram and our hostess Sup were super!  Overall great trip.

My husband and I took this cruise with my sister and her 2 toddlers.  I was worried about screaming children and being bored. I think this cruise had plenty of adult only pool space and I enjoyed the night club areas.  If anything I would say there was not enough activities for the children.  My sister has 2 boys and the evening activities consisted primarily of dressing in your disney princess dress and standing in line for photos with disney characters. There was a nightly show and movies by the pool but I didn't see much else.  Maybe I am spoiled because I live in Florida but Disney Island did not impress either.  Beach with a bunch of disney stores.  That being said the ship was very clean, the food was great, the staff everywhere was extremely friendly and personable.  The lobby entertainment each night was a nice plus as well.

Just everything about the cruise was fantastic! If I had to pick one thing though, I would have to say that the day spent at Castaway Cay was the best! Can't wait to do it again!!!!

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Our first time ever on a cruise, and we were delighted with the consistently positive attitude of every single staff we encountered. From the first moments of boarding our cruise ship we were treated with friendliness and humour. The ship itself was so elegant in Art deco-design throughout-- in the mode of 1940s elegant era of cruise ships. We felt like royalty.  Our elegant dinners organized with the same randomly assigned dining companions and table staff, but rotating amongst the theme restaurants. We enjoyed not just an abundance of food, but lovely adventurous cuisine in modest but very satisfying portions, so we felt refreshed and healthy after our 4-day adventure. The ship was impeccably clean throughout.

 We paid extra to get an ocean view private stateroom and loved the romance of the beautiful Carribean seas rolling by our refuge from the crowds aboard The positive attitude of the staff was contagious-- most of the passengers were relaxed and well behaved, thoroughly enjoying the abundant activities and energetic entertainment. Well done Disney to build a positive dimension on your grand history of public entertainment, by giving families, couples and singles a wonderful experience together based on very positive values that everyone can enjoy. The only stress we felt was having too many great actvities to join in, couldn't catch them all but enjoyed every single one we did (after prioritizing wisely). Even some that brought tears to my stoic husbands eyes and brought us closer to appreciating each other. Thank you for helping us was a marvelous way to celebrate our 30 year of marriage in an enchanted voyage!LoveLove

The ship is very clean and the crew members are all very nice and helpful.  Aquaduck is our highlight of all trip!  The food is good but not the best, however, this is our first cruise ever, before this we always go to all-inclusive resorts and foods selection and quality are much better in my opinion. The room designed very clever and comfortable. We had the stateroom with balcony and we used it every day after came back from excursion on land.

This cruise was excellent.  The food, service and shows were out of this world!  The only thing for improvement would be a pool for lap swimming for 12 and over.  See ya real soon Mickey Mouse!
