Cruise ship review

Disney Dream, Part 1: Pleasant Surprises for Adults and Kids

Disney’s newest cruise ship just arrived in Port Canaveral last week and will begin its 3 and 4 night cruises on Jan. 26 to the Bahamas.  The dream is much larger than Disney’s other two ships, with a passenger capacity of 4000 (which would mean a completely full passenger count in each cabin) and she is appointed well with a design reminiscent of the classic 1930’s ocean liners.  On Monday, I attended a special day onboard with a few hundred others and discovered the brilliance of the design team in selecting this classic theme.  The main atrium includes glass, art deco elevators and sculpted iron work and many areas on the ship include original framed animator’s sketches of Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Donald Duck and many classic Disney characters which warms the heart of us baby-boomer types while at the same time, their grandchildren are delighted with the high-tech fun and surprises that are found everywhere from the dining rooms to the kids clubs.  Even some of the animator’s sketches come to life when a room key-card is swiped along the frame and the character in the sketch calls your name and engages you in a conversation.  It’s magic!  uh, no, the Magic is one of the older ships, it’s the Dream.
