The long-anticipated wait is over! After over a year of watching the building process, we finally are able to see the newest addition to the Disney Cruise Line, the Disney Dream, in its full glory!
The Disney Dream was constructed in Germany and after its unveiling, sailed to Port Canaveral where it made its debut on January 4. The first sailing was with cast members only and the second sailing was the christening and Media Cruise. There was also a special trip for travel agents so that they were better equipped to book a trip on the cruise. After all of these “test cruises,” the first one for the public, the inaugural cruise, began on January 26.
The newest addition to the Disney fleet had already made quite a name for itself with some of its incredible features, the first of which is the ever popular AquaDuck! This water coaster has been one of the talks of the ship ever since it was announced. The coaster is 765-feet long and the high powered jets send the rider hurling through the tubes, up and over hills and at one point, through a loop in a clear tube that has you flying over side of the boat with the ocean below!
Other innovations on this ship include the Magical Portholes, allowing inside staterooms a view of the ocean with a few magical surprises, Disney’s Oceaneer Club that have children playing in Andy’s room, on the laugh floor and in the ocean with Nemo, clubs exclusively for teens and tweens, and an area just for adults called the District, featuring lots of nighttime entertainment including one lounge that had a different view of a city skyline every night! I haven’t even talked about the different horns the ship has! (Let’s just say that Disney really went above and beyond with this one! Look on youtube for Disney Dream Horn)
To answer your question, Yes, this ship does have just about everything!
The Disney Dream is currently sailing 3 and 4 night cruises to the Bahamas and Castaway Cay. Many cruises are filled, but to find out if one is available for you, visit the Disney Cruise Line site at disneycruise.com or call at 888-DCL-2500.
Living in Delaware her whole life, Jessica did not know much about Walt Disney World until she went at 13 years old. That initial trip, though, got her hooked on the magic. As the years went on, she did everything she could to learn more about Disney (including watching documentaries and reading books). She did not know many people that shared her passion until she discovered the wonders of the internet and the Disney community found on it. She has gotten involved with as many Disney projects as she can, including writing the weekly news articles for The Disney Driven Life and writing for her own blog, The True Disney Fan. Jessica has also taken on a position with Celebrations Magazine, working the social media aspects of the publication. Through all these platforms, Jessica strives to bring as much Disney magic as possible into her everyday life, and she works to share it with everyone she meets!
