Disney Dream Ship

 

Touring Disney Dream Cruise Ship

The Disney Dream is the third ship in Disney Cruise Line's fleet and became the largest and most feature-packed ship to ever grace the already popular cruise line. This large ship (about 40% larger than the original Disney cruise ships) has unique features such as the first "water coaster" ever to be on a cruise ship. Disney Dream carries on Disney's classic theme of all its ships - early 20th century, reminiscent of the golden age of cruising. During a visit to the Bahamas, I was able to take a tour of this luxurious ship while in port and will share my impressions of this “dream” cruise ship.

Ship Details: The Disney Dream measures 1,115 feet by 125 feet at it’s widest. It weighs 130,000 tons, and its 14 decks house 1,250 staterooms that accommodate 4,000 passengers. More than 1,458 staff members are on board as well.

Guests sailing on a Disney Dream cruise should never run out of things to do while on board. Ship designers included multiple swimming pools (including an adults-only pool), whirlpools and Goofy's Sports Deck (an open-air activity center, featuring a miniature golf course, virtual sports simulators and a basketball/volleyball court). For nighttime entertainment, the two-story Walt Disney Theatre is a live-performance venue that will host a variety of shows, including Broadway-style Disney live shows, as well as 3-D and first-run movies. But the feature that makes this ship most unique is the AquaDuck, the cruise industry's first ever "water coaster." At 765-feet in length and with a 4 deck drop into a lazy river, it provides plenty of high-speed thrills for guests sailing on a Disney Dream cruise that opt to enjoy the ride!
