Ship Facts: Disney Dream Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Disney Dream Deck Plans
Another great cruise on the Dream

This was our third voyage on the Disney Dream in four years. We are so fortunate to be able to do this with a child while he still enjoys the Disney Universe – he’s 11 going on 14. Many reviewers have focused on so many good things about this 4-day Bahamas cruise; I’d like to highlight some areas that caught my attention this trip.

The Disney production shows are similar (if not identical) to what we saw 18 months ago, on our previous trip. The Villains, and Believe had the same titles, and seemed to be the same shows. A show that was different was Mike Super (the lavenous magician), who was at times mystifying, and funny as well. My wife was disappointed that the production shows had not changed, so I pass this info along to others who might be lucky enough to get a second trip on the Dream.

Our cabin attendant, Omar, was terrific. Some of us slept in more than others; we got all the service we wanted, and needed, when we needed it, without being disturbed. Everything was clean when we arrived in our room at 1:30PM, and stayed that way, except for our messes, the entire cruise. Omar kept our ice bucket filled and our room neat. If you are in the 8500 block of the Dream, tell him “Hi” for us. He’ll remember your name, I’m sure.

The food in the restaurants is good, plentiful, and mostly the same menus as 18 months ago. Not bad for us, as Sea Bass is always a favorite. Not complaining, just noting that the food menu doesn’t appear too much different. My favorite of the three restaurants through which we were rotated is the Animator’s Palate. Something called “Crush” swims around, talking to the Dudes and Dudettes. A wonderful time was had by all, including a rousing rendition of “Happy Birthday” as only Crush, could do. Our waiters Geeza and Alex rotated with us, and always gave us superb service.

The connection to the Internet, called Connect@Sea, worked well for us, and the price was significantly less than I remembered. We paid $15 and got 300MB of data for our trip – more than enough to check email a couple of times every day. We checked email because we use Google Voice as our cell phone number, and messages left to our cell phone get copied to our Gmail account, so we can read a really bad transcription or hear the exact voice mail left. While some say a vacation should not include cell phones and voice mails, we find it comforting to hear from our baby sitter back home as to how things are going with our older kids who didn’t come with us. We can get back to our sitter with an email, if she needs further instructions, etc. without the much larger expense of her calling our stateroom or us donating big bucks to our unfavorite cell phone company, unless a call is really necessary. The Internet connection is SSLLOOOWW, but usable, for our purposes. Mucho kudos to Disney for making this little part of our journey more comforting, for a low price.
