4.0 Editor's Rating

This was our 14th cruise overall, 3rd on Disney and the 2nd on the Dream (1st being March, 2011). Previously, we sailed on Disney "adults only." This time, family accompanied us including our 2 1/2 year-old grandson. Between the family ... Read more

I was very hesitant to try the Dream after two AMAZING cruises on the Magic with my family, but since this would be a girls only trip - no husbands, no children - I went in with an open mind, knowing it would be different. And I was ... Read more

This was our first cruise with my wife and two kids (2 and 5). Sail date was May 3rd on the Dream. Traveled to the port via park and ride service, it is a process but saved over $50 vs parking at the port. Check-in went well and they let ... Read more

We had a short trip to Port Canaveral from the Tampa Bay area. Our almost 5 year old granddaughter was very excited as this was her first cruise and her birthday is very soon. The parking garage was still not filled when we got to the ... Read more

We sailed on the Disney Dream on April 29th, 2012 on a 4 day cruise to the Bahamas. We chose this because many said that the 3-day cruise to the Bahamas did not allow enough time to enjoy the boat. I quite agree. Here is the good, not-so ... Read more

This was our first Disney Cruise. It will probably be our last. Before I go into my opinion of the "philosophy" of Disney Cruises, here's some specifics: Embarkation-Couldn't have been easier. We received our keycard and boarding ... Read more

Review of the 5-day Dream cruise 3/22-3/27 Overall we enjoyed our first cruise on DCL. The Dream is very well maintained and the staff in general cares about doing a good job. If a french fry hits the floor it is picked in less than 30 ... Read more

We took our kids (18,16 and 8) on their first cruise, and our first time on a Disney ship (Dream). The ship was immaculate and there is nothing like pulling into port and making all the other cruise line passengers jealous! We actually ... Read more

Kiki and Mamps are 65 and 70 respectively....most think we are in our 50s. We took our boys 6 & 7 on this cruise. It was a first time for them, and they knew about it since Christmas. They were really excited. When they got the call ... Read more

This was our first cruise with Disney. We are long time Disney fans and Annual Pass holders at Walt Disney World so we thought it was about time to try out the cruise lines. We booked a three night Bahamas cruise out of Port Canaveral on ... Read more

I thought I'd share my perspective of a recent trip on the Dream from an indifferent-to-Disney guy. This was our first cruise. We have a four-year-old daughter (and another cooking in Mommy's belly). Pros: The ship really is ... Read more

This was my 5th cruise but 1st time with Disney (and 1st cruise entirely for all others in my party). So as not to be redundant, I will try to be specific on things I feel would be helpful assuming you have read other reviews. The ... Read more

We sailed on the Dream in Feb 2011. She had not been sailing long at this point and I think it showed. We have always loved DCL. We have sailed on the Magic and the Wonder and are sailing on the Fantasy in May. We have enough experience, ... Read more

To begin with I want to say that the day before I left on this cruise I had read every review for the Dream on Cruise Critic...numbered 150! I had booked my trip well over a year prior to sailing, so had plenty of time to read them all. ... Read more

We are avid cruisers and take cruises about every year. Usually we sail with Royal Caribbean, but decided on Disney for the enjoyment of our three year old. We were booked in 8010, which is a SUPERB room with a huge balcony. We were ... Read more
