My husband and I chose the Disney Dream for the first cruise of our lives, quite an adventure as it was our first trip without our children to celebrate our 21st anniversary. Some people thought we were crazy to take a Disney Cruise without kids, but as Disney fans, we knew it was the right choice for us. We had a WONDERFUL time!!! Yes, there were a lot of families, but Disney has so many adult-only areas and activities that we were able to have plenty of quiet adult time.
We were treated like royalty, from our excellent cabin steward, to our favorite barista, to our friendly and attentive serving team, we felt catered to and pampered throughout the entire cruise. And the Disney magic spilled over into our table assignment, where we were paired with another couple celebrating their 16th anniversary, travelling without their children for the first time. By the end of the cruise, we were dear friends, and hope to plan another cruise together in the future.
Our cabin was pristine, as was the entire ship. If you are impressed with the cleanliness of the Disney parks, you will be awed by the cleanliness of the ship. Every public space was spotless. It is apparent that the crew takes a special pride in the care and keeping of their ship. We loved our balcony, and one of my favorite memories from the trip was rising early to watch the sunrise from our verandah as we sailed.
We splurged on an anniversary dinner at Remy, and it was well worth the upcharge. Remy is an experience, one that everyone should enjoy once in their lives. The food was out of this world and the service was impeccable...a very special treat.
We had such a wonderful time, we are doing it again next month, this time WITH our kids!! Counting down the days with great anticipation!
