Fabulous Ship

Sail Date: May 19, 2011

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Balcony

The new Disney Dream really is a dream!! It's a beautiful ship with wonderful activities for all...lots of choices for both kids and adults. My daughter loved the tween club and the pool and AquaDuck was a real winner, although the line wasn't fun! Even the port excursions were made easier by the staff and crew. However, some of the food was less than stellar quality and one or two servers seemed too rushed to give much attention. In fairness, most were at the end of their six month commitment without a day off the entire time, so I'm not sure I blame them. Clearly, Disney puts their money into families, so if you have younger children, definitely consider a Disney cruise! Worth the $$$

Pros: Beautiful stateroom, lots of activities for both kids and adults, ease of excursions

Cons: Inconsistency of food, difficulty with few servers

Recommends Disney Dream? Yes!

Food and Dining
Had wonderful food, at other times, was very disappointed. Many choices for kids, however.
Service and Staff
Most were exceptional, only a few exeptions. I think Disney needs to work out a day off now and then.
Ship Quality
Breathtaking! Could hardly tell the ship was moving most of the time.
Cabin / Stateroom
Absolutely spectacular! Slept like baby.
Didn't miss the casinos one bit!
Children's Programs
The best! Untouched by any other cruise line..
Nassau, Bahamas
Make sure you bargain at the Straw Market. The Conch Fritter behind the Market and next to the Hilton has a great grouper sandwich, but $$$
Don't Miss: Dolphin Encounter at Blue Lagoon
Castaway Cay (Disney Private Island)
Make sure you snorkle and get some ribs at lunch time!! Reapply sunscreen more than you think you need, sun is very strong.
Don't Miss: Biking...do it early after docking then go for a swim in the beautiful waters. Too hot any other way!
