The Disney Dream was the first cruise for any of our family with 2 & 7 y.o girls. The overall experience of the cruise was amazing. It takes a lot of organisation to get things done but there was not a minute of boredom/downtime during ... Read more

We sailed on the Dream on March 28 for a 4 night cruise. My husband and I were able to use the adult pool areas because my 17 year old son found the Vibe teen club on the first day and spent most of his ship time there from that point on. ... Read more

We had a navigator's verandah cabin and loved it. There was plenty of storage for the three of us - we did not even use some of the drawer space. My 5 year old grand daughter had a ball; she loved the character meets and seeing the ... Read more

I've cruised many cruise lines, Disney was honestly a disappointment. First the cost is double so you should be able to expect double right? Wrong. Employees with no personality waiting for their 8 months to be up ! People pushing and ... Read more
