Sail Date: October 01, 2011 Ship: Disney Dream Cabin Type: Balcony Traveled As: Family (older children) Reviewed: 5 years ago
The ship was amazing! There were no problems and everyone was extremely welcoming. Unlike others, I did not have any problems with the guest or staff, everyone was extremely curteous and welcoming.
Food and Dining
5 out of 5
The food was amazing! From the wait staff to the food itself everything was perfect. Anyone who said otherwise was obviously very picky about the food they wanted. I hadn't paid much attention to the position of our table but our food came out hot and the time in between was spent conversing with those at our table who we got to know very well in fact. The rotational dining was a genius idea and whoever came up with it should be applauded. The Royal Court was the favorite because the food was so extravagant yet it wasn't hard to know what you were ordering. All the restaurants were extremely welcoming and there were no problems with it whatsoever.

There were so many things to do on the ship and even though I spent my first day exploring every single floor of the ship I still feel like I did not experience everything on the ship. Any one who said they were bored were obviously trying to be because there was too much to do to be bored. Whether it was playing ping pong, swimming, going to the arcade, going on the aqua duck or just watching a disney movie on the jumbo tron there was an endless amount of things to do.

Edge was not everything it was cracked up to be. First of all it was extremely small and for the amount of kids that were at the club and it was always crowded. If I could I would have joined Vibe at any moment. I spent almost no time in Edge because some of the computers were broken the place was about the size of 2 master bedrooms and there was never enough to do. Despite how nice the counselors were it didn't make up for the disapointment of the club
Service and Staff
5 out of 5
The staff was the best I have ever had. They never ceased to amaze me with how much they worked to keep everyone happy. They remembered my name within the 2nd day of the cruise and always made sure that everything was okay. They were extremely helpful when figuring out the best times to go to on the aquaduck or go to certain restaurants. Overall they were friendly outgoing and most of all extremely caring.

The ship was extremely big and the public areas were spotless. The decor was beautiful and you can tell that Disney spent a long amount of time into the design of the ship. There was a way to get to every part of the ship easily. I even found a few hidden shortcuts in the short 4 nights that we were on the ship.
Cabin / Stateroom
5 out of 5
We had a Category 4A stateroom with Verandah. The stateroom was just the right size and the verandah had an extremely beautiful view. The verandah was a bit small but we didn't spend much time on it so that was ok. The split bathroom works out perfectly when trying to get ready in the morning. The stateroom had no dirt whatsoever every time we came back at night. We didn't spend much time in it so I wouldn't suggest buying an extremely expensive stateroom unless you plan on spending a good amount of time in it.
Pros: Everything except the kid's club and the pools
Cons: Edge(11-13 kids club and the pools were extremely tight and crowded)
