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

This was our first cruise ever and we chose to start at the top with the Disney Dream. Check in at Port Canaveral was quick and easy, they really have it down to a science. We had a designated boarding time and the process was very fast. ... Read more
