I decided to write a review because the previous reviews were very helpful for my recent cruise. We sailed on the Disney Dream with our 6 year old daughter. We decided to leave our 2 year old son back because we wanted to enjoy ourselves and not be running behind him the whole time. Disney is the best cruise line we have sailed so far. Very kid friendly..... We are already planning the next cruise except this time will take our son and possibly other family members to enjoy the experience we did.
Disney caters to the kiddos and adults of all ages...
First we arrived at Orlando airport used the Disney cruise line shuttle. It was very organized. We carried our luggage on the flight and stepped off the plane downstairs to the Disney transportation area. They took our Disney booklet and we were on the shuttle in no time. It took about 45 minutes and they had an orientation on the tv monitors aboard the shuttle. These were very helpful in the embarkation process also entertaining for the kiddos. We arrived at port around 11:30 and had already checked in online went through security up the stairs to get our key to the world card. This card will be used for every thing onboard so hold on to it. We were given a number to go aboard so we had a little time to spare we took our daughter to the kids camp section. She was given an ID bracelet to use for the remainder of the cruise it is waterproof and needs to be turned in at the end of the cruise, or you will be charged 50 dollars. This bracelet allowed her to go in and out of the kids camp. She loved it there we had to pull her out just so we could get time with her. This is very convenient age 3-12 potty trained free care. 2 and udder go to nursery for additional fee. So were glad we waited to take our son later. Then you board and are stopped to take a professional picture. Then you board are asked your last name and are greeted by crew members and they clap for you as you board making you feel like royalty totally cool.
Rooms aren't ready until 1:30 pm so you have a choice to eat at cabanas buffet and or 2nd floor enchanted garden. Then we settled in our room explored the ship
and did our required ship orientation for emergency's really organized and fast then headed upstairs deck 11 for the sail away party. The characters showed up and it was a blast. Then to dinner first night we ate at animator's palate coolest restaurant in my opinion. Food was good kids have a lot of options and feel free to eat as much as you want. Next day Nassau, Bahamas we left our daughter in kids club and we got off ship. No excursions just a little shopping and pictures for memories came back a couple of hours later took our daughter out and went to enchanted garden for dinner. This night food was also nice. This was pirates night we dressed our daughter in her last Halloween costume fortunately she was a pirate really cool went to pirate deck party and fireworks were awesome and then went to bed to get ready for the next day castaway cay most beautiful water. I must say we stayed on the beach and relaxed and snorkeled and had lunch at cookies barbeque really good selection and great food. Then went to dinner last night at the royal table good food. Cruise was over the next day and debarkation is very organized I definately recommend this cruise cant wait for our next one.
Also the Golden Mickey's broadway show and Villains night were great! We missed the last show I think was called Believe.
