Sail Date: February 10, 2013 Ship: Disney Dream Cabin Type: Inside Traveled As: Family (older children) Reviewed: 5 years ago
Port Arrival went very smoothly..only had to wait about 25 minutes total to board. The ship is very beautiful but somewhat difficult to navigate as some areas are not clearly marked where to go. The rotating dining was very nice, enjoyed our wait staff very much. The children enjoyed the all you can eat ice cream. Now speaking of children, I was traveling with a 23 month old and a 12 year old boy. Other than putting the 23 mo old in the nursery or taking him to Nemo's reef- the little kids water play area..there is absolutly nothing else to do with a little one. Really surprised that Disney could not fit in a soft playground area that parents could take the little ones to. Really disappointed in that. Now my 12 year old really felt like there was not much for him to do. The Edge club felt like it was more appropriate for a 8-9 year old girl so he would not go in the at all. He did ride the Aquaduck about 50 times but even that got boring after awhile. Also we felt like there was TOO MUCH adult only areas. he felt left out if we tried to use these areas. Even the gym was 18+. I know this sounds crazy but if you need that much adult only time maybe a Disney Cruise is not the cruise for you.
