Just returned from a 4-day Very Merrytime Bahamian cruise aboard the Disney Dream; this was our third cruise on the Dream and second using concierge. However this was our first 4-day cruise on Disney and compared to the 3-day, this cruise was packed with people. We were also celebrating 2 Birthdays. Although Disney cruises focus on kids, there are plenty of adult activities. The shows are top-notch; loved the Palo brunch; had fun playing the Midship Detective game; and the meet and greets with the various costumed actors was great. We did have a few hic-ups: our stateroom door stopped working on the first day right before the sail away party which we therefore missed (we enjoy this activity quite a bit). The repair took about an hour and was handled expertly; I do understand that things break. The second issue was with Senses: when buying our $170 Rainforest access pass, we were told there were a limited number of passes (80). Well, other than the first night, we weren’t able to use the hot-tubs or heated beds because of availability so apparently passes were not as “limited” as we were led to believe. Senses also provided a hair treatment (blow-out) and applied a “treatment” without discussing the price: what should have cost @ $65 was billed at $156. This up-charge was not approved but never-the-less charged. One positive with Senses was a $50 coupon given to 1 of the birthday ‘girls’ but it had expired the month prior to our sailing date. When the second birthday ‘girl’ asked for the coupon at Guest Services, she was told she had to have her birthday while on-board (her birthday was the day we got off the ship and therefore we were on-board). The other birthday was the day before we boarded so this explanation is wrong/inappropriate. Disney cruises are wonderful. However our experiences with Senses and Disney Guest Services was sub-par; no one’s birthday should be ignored and invalidated. Why did Disney not want to celebrate my daughter turning 25? Read Less

Here are 10 Quick Things You need to know 1. This ship is over 20 years old and it shows. From rusty spots on the balconies to musty smells in the rooms, this ship is definitely showing it's age. 2. The dinner food is mediocre. It's served lukewarm because they're serving hundreds of people at once so chances are your food was waiting to be delivered to your table while they got all the dishes ready. 3. The Staff is amazing and they definitely take service to the next level. 4. Bring you're own camera for the character photos. The staff will use your camera and take one with the cruise photographer's camera. Their digital photos cost $250 for 20 photos. At such a ridiculous price it makes no sense to purchase their photos if you have a good camera. In fact this may justify getting a good camera if you want lots of pictures with characters and princesses. 5. If you have a stop at Walt Disney World link your tickets and book your FastPasses 6 months in advance if possible. 6. The character breakfasts and excursions book up early. You need to book those events the minute they become available. 7. You don't need to book character photo experiences because there will be an opportunity to take a photo with almost every character at some point and time as long as your willing to wait in line for 30mins to an hour. 8. Everything is billed to your credit card so no need to bring cash unless you are going to Disney World. Then bring all the cash you can, because that place is expensive. 9. Download the Disney Cruise App before you board. The cruise Wifi is overpriced and slow. They will give you 50MB free if you stop by Guest Services on the first day but that disappears quickly. You can see your 50MB just trickling away on their app even when you aren't doing anything. 10. The pools and hot tubs are small. The first day the family pool was full of kids and parents to the point where you could barely move. At the same time the adult pool had 3 people in it with room for 40 more. Read Less

This cruise was basically the third change we had to make to our vacation plans thanks to work schedule. We originally booked our cruise with Allure of the Seas, but watching too many videos of that ship I had the impression that the Oasis-class ships are nothing but mere floating malls in the ocean - no theme, no character. We wanted a cruise that was going to be memorable before I head to a long deployment. After much deliberation, we went back to the Dream as our last cruise with them three years was exactly just that - it was magical. This cruise went out exactly the same way as we had it three years ago. We got our transportation arranged from the airport, and the whole embarkation process was smooth like before. Once on the ship, we had our cabin on the tenth deck, middle, just below the pool deck. I found our location to be very convenient to wherever we needed to go. We had access to two nearby elevators, and the pool deck are just a deck up. We also noted that our balcony is directly below the pool deck, so like an awning, it was well protected from the elements which I found nice. The room itself had shown some age to it. I'm not sure when and if the ship have ever been refurbished, but with my OCD, I quickly found scuff and wear marks on the light switches and fixture parts that have been heavily touched through the years. Expecting a premium product for this price, it was hard for me to see past that glare of the wear. Our embarkation lunch at Cabanas were not too pleasant. It was way too crowded, open tables were hard to find, and I found some of the servers unwelcoming. Once we got our seats, we did find the food less desirable than the last time we were on the ship. We brought these issues to management and were given immediate answers to our concerns. Over the following days, we experienced the same magical moments that we had the first time we cruised with these ship. Public spaces were clean and looked just as ornate as before. For those that haven't cruised on this ship, Disney did not spare on the small details in creating their theme on the ship. Their shows were of Broadway caliber, especially beauty and the beast. Their character meet and greets were always a hit with the kids, if you don't mind waiting up to a half hour. And because this was a holiday themed cruise, they went over the top for showcasing Santa. As well, their pirate show fireworks on the top deck was an extravaganza. Hands down it was the coolest experience I've ever had at Sea. Our day at Castaway Cay was just Divine. I still can't forget how beautiful and perfect the island looked. It didn't feel over crowded and there were ample opportunities to just unwind and take it all in. Buffet services followed us there and it was great. No complaints. Food was something that this ship have to at least revamp. It was almost the same menu we had three years ago, so we were not as excited this time. Also, we were not served lobster on this cruise, not one time, which I found surprising. On the other hand, we were able to enjoy our previous favorites instead. I was about to write off Disney from our future cruise consideration after this trip, but what made us book another future cruise with them is the fact that our daughter had the best time of her life at their Kids club while the peace of mind it gave us allowed us parents to enjoy our own time at Sea. I don't think we even want to risk trying that out with other cruise lines and be disappointed. Another biggest factor that made us decide to book another future cruise with them is their customer service. They truly went above and beyond to ensure that, despite the issues we raised, we had a magical experience on this ship. Our guest manager was exemplary, and nothing short of commendable. When we disembarked, we felt highly satisfied that the cruise fulfilled our expectations. So much that we ended up cancelling our Royal Caribbean cruise for next year, and ended up prebooking our next Disney cruise with an even bigger family in tow. Disney cruises are not the cheapest out there, but the many repeat cruisers we had on board can't be wrong on going again for the Disney experience. With the amount of people already prebooking their cruise, we can't be wrong on making that decision either. It's simply the best cruise experience for families, and definitely something to strongly consider if you've never cruised with Disney cruises before. Read Less

First Disney Cruise, 3rd cruise overall, first time Concierge service, ship was in great shape since it's the 1st one to sail. Will be very hard if we sail again not to get Concierge service. Our Concierge team of Alina, Emannela and Nicky were fantastic, there for every need. Our Serving team of Hilash Harinath, Cornel Besoi and Dumitru Cabut were all great and finally our stateroom host Flore Mihai always had a smile on her face and helpful. As for the Cruise leaving N.Y. In Nov on Sat. was a little chilly didn't start to feel warmer till Monday. My step-daughter & granddaughter finally got to use the pool & hot tub by then. Tuesday we arrived at Castaway Cay which was beautiful, Temp was about 85 but windy so no feeding the stingrays, wind surfing and jet ski's, but still had a great time in the water. We also had a Cabana #12, very close to the restrooms and not too far from the food. Then Wed. on to WDW again very warm and very crowded (Magic Kingdom). Back on ship early, Thurs. was Pirate Night and show was very good including the fireworks, was surprised it wasn't moved inside because the sea was a little rough. Overall really nothing bad to say about the cruise at all. My family on the other hand was a different story. Never had breakfast other than in the cabin so it was boxed cereal and Danish etc. Went to Concierge Lounge a few times for coffee and finger sandwiches and desserts. Not to sound harsh but don't bring anyone who can't get around very well, needed me to hold on to even with a cane. Granddaughter had a great time but could never get off the phone and play games. She did join the tweens club and went there a few times and did say she had a good time why she didn't go more I don't know. Also don't bring someone who doesn't like crowds, our day at WDW was very crowded and warm. We arrived at WDW about 9:30 am, then went thru security which took way too long need more agents, so it was about 10am by the time we got into the park, by 1:30 our granddaughter was ready to leave are you kidding me (10 yrs old) Used our 3 V.I.P. passes in no time so only went on 3 rides, Haunted Mansion, Pirates and Splash Mountain, that's it so WDW was a waste. Never saw Epcot, Animal Kingdom or Hollywood Studios. Got to see the new movie "The Nutcracker" was ok not one of Disney's best. Never went to any shows, pretty much stayed in the cabin # 8534 which was very nice but at times heard people running on deck 9 so if you don't mind a little noise here and there then cabin is ok. Sat out on the Verandah only 2 - 3 times another waste and finally dinner, you have dinner at 3 different restaurants, well we went to each restaurant just 1 time each so the other nights we ate in our cabin. So overall for all the money spent it wasn't worth it. Would I go again, yes just with different people. Read Less

Our family just returned from our second cruise on the Disney Dream and it was juast as amazing as our first! This was the first Very Merrytime Cruise and the ship was near capacity. We had an 11:45am arrival time, but actually made it there by 10:45am. The line to get through the initial ID check was short and the security line was not bad (maybe 10-15 minute wait). Once we went upstairs, the terminal was packed. We were lucky to get boarding group 12. They started boarding around 11:30am and we were on before noon. Going on the ship was easy and the atrium was beautifully decorated. We were sad to see the gingerbread house was not yet finished, but they worked on it during the cruise. Lunch was at Cabana’s and the only issue I had was with the rock crab. It had an odd, musty taste and I stopped eating it. I should have mentioned it to the crew, but we were wanting to get finished up. It was very packed since the rooms were not yet ready. The time we were done, rooms were ready and we headed downstairs. We went with a deluxe verandah room and we did notice the smaller size compared with the deluxe family oceanview room on our past cruise. We were on the starboard side of the ship and got to watch the crew loading the ship. We walked around the ship and headed up to the Sail Away party and it was fun for the kids. We went down for dinner in the Enchanted Garden shortly after the show ended (first seating). Tip – if you are not able to book the first dining online, call Disney and they will put you on a wait list. We were very lucky and were assigned to first dining when we received our cards. There is also a time on the ship you can ask to change. As for dinner itself, our wait staff was wonderful and the food was excellent as usual. I had the tomato bisque and sea bass and I would say it is one of the best meals of my life, if not the best. Everyone else really enjoyed their meals as well. That evening, they had some fun Christmas shows in the atrium. The Golden Mickey’s was very good and the kids enjoyed it. For the day at Nassau, we arrived in port around 9am and we ashore before lunch. My in-laws were traveling with us and wanted to see Nassau. We were off the ship for about an hour and that was enough. Unless you have a shore excursion, just stay on the ship! It is just too crazy with all of the people pushing you to take rides or trying to sell you things. Back on the ship, we had some lunch at the quick-service restaurants on the pool deck and it was pretty tasty. Nothing mind-blowing, but hit the spot. We enjoyed the pools and my wife and 7yo son rode the Aquaduck while I took my 3yo to the Nemo splash area. We all had a good time there. We then took our older son down to the kid’s club and we had our younger son get a much-needed nap. My wife and I enjoyed some time on the balcony watching the ships parked next to ours. It was scheduled to be a very slow port day in Nassau, but there were a total of five ships that docked, so the pier was crazier than usual. Dinner was at the Royal Palace and the food was once again very good. The wait staff even brought me out an extra dessert (soufflé night!) since I mentioned how much I love them. The show that night was Beauty and the Beast and it was out of this world! The effects are simply amazing and we were glad the seas were calm so they could perform. The last cruise was pretty rocky and they had to cancel it, which broke our hearts! It was also pirate night and the shows on the top deck were a blast. The fireworks are on the shorter side (about 3 minutes or so), but totally worth staying up for. The next day was our stop at Castaway Cay. We docked around 8am and we headed off the ship around 9:30am. We saw the grand Christmas tree and there was a character meeting when we got off. The tram ride was short and a nice way to travel to our beach. The weather was perfect, but we under-estimated how strong the sun was. We were all on the verge of nasty sunburns, even with sunscreen. The water was a bit on the cooler side (maybe upper-70s), but did not take long to adjust to. My older son enjoyed the water slide and we also swam around the snorkeling area a bit. We did not actually snorkel, but just wore our life vests out and enjoyed the view. Lunch is a basic bbq with hot dogs and burgers with a variety of sides and fruit. It tasted pretty good since we were all hungry. We did some shopping and then went back to the ship. My younger son took a nap again and my older son went back to the kid’s area. My wife and I took turns relaxing in the room while the other explored the ship. We left the island around 4:45pm and it was sad to see it sail into the sunset. Dinner was in Animator’s Palate. I was still full from lunch, so I went with a lighter chicken dish (very good!). The potato soup was amazing, but a part of me wished I would have asked for the tomato bisque and sea bass from the first night again. The show in the restaurant was tons of fun and the kids loved it. We then went to watch Believe and the cast was brilliant! We saw the show back in January and it was updated from what we remembered. The genie was hilarious and the one actress singing a song from Princess and the Frog brought the house down! I would put it up with any show on Broadway right now. Both of our kids sat for all three shows, even though it was past their usual bedtimes. When the show was over, we went back to the room to get our suitcases outside for pickup and then we relaxed a bit. I caught some Sunday Night Football on Funnel Vision on the top deck and walked around some. It was a great ending to the day. The only downside for the day in general was trying to book our next cruise. I was 5th in line, but two people ahead of me were booking six rooms and four rooms. With only two crew members assisting, the people in line were very frustrated as well and I ended up just putting a placeholder card in the box. I wasted 45 minutes standing there when I could have been enjoying the ship. I know for the next time! The final morning was the same as our last cruise. We hit up Cabana’s for breakfast and the staff is not as cheerful as the other mornings. I know they are pushing to get everyone off the ship and I think it is a tactic to help people along. There is a limited menu, which is also understandable. We did have the option to go back to Animator’s Palate, but it was at 6:45am, which was too early for us. Getting off the ship was very fast and going through the line at customs took maybe 10 minutes. We were back in the garage and the trip ended in a blink of an eye. I just think about all of the people coming on and how excited they are for their trip. It is such a sad feeling to leave the amazing Dream, but we also learn more each trip. We know some things we will do differently for the next cruise and we are hoping to go back next October! Read Less

9th Cruise with Disney and 4th on the Dream. We were looking for a quick get-away for me and the wife, and love everything Disney's ships have for adults only cruisers. The Dream is absolutely perfect. Embarkation is super easy. We always use Disney Transportation from MCO and it is stream lined to the point we have nothing to worry about. We check in at our home airport and never see our bags again until they arrive at our cabin on the ship. We always arrive at the cruise terminal early, and we are usually assigned a boarding group no higher than 4. we virtually walk on the ship and start enjoying our vacation right away. This ship is very clean and we start having fun right from the beginning. We love the adult pool areas, there always quiet and we can lounge around and just do what ever! when we feel like being young again we hang out in the family pool area and watch the kid splashing around in their pool. The funnel-vision always has fun movies and on Sunday, they showed the football game. Our cabin was great, very clean, and wonderfully maintained by our Stateroom Host, Ketut. This was a last minute vacation for us, and we book a GTY 5C. This was a new and nervous experience for us, because we like choosing our cabin and location. We were pleasantly surprised when we received a 5A cabin on level 9, aft. We could walk right up to Cabanas and the pool on deck 11. The location was perfect and we will definitely book another GTY. We love the rotational dinning and we are never disappointed with the food. this was our first experience with the late dinning, and I must say I prefer to eat earlier, but we lived with it. Our wait staff was great. Jeanpierre and Gusi took really good care of use and met our every need. Animator's Palate is always fun and we love the interactive screens around the room. we dined at Royal Palace on our final evening and it was absolutely great. We loved the food and the service and can't imagine how it could have been any better. We Dined at Palo's on the second evening, and this was our first experience there for dinner. We make it a habit to have brunch there every cruise, but booked so late, the brunch was sold out. The dinner at Palo's is out of this world. I had a steak that was so tender, you could cut it with a fork. My wife was more adventurous, and had Dover Sole. it was outstanding. Our server, Berniece, made sure our every need was met and she really made dinner magical and fun. I definitely would recommend Palo's, either brunch or dinner, (Both if possible). Room services was also great. We ordered Coffee, which was delivered to our room every morning around 7 so we could enjoy a cup, out on our balcony, watching the waves go by. Then we would leisurely get dressed and head up to Cabanas for a light breakfast. We love the buffet for breakfast and lunch and Disney always has a great variety of food. I usually hit-up the dessert area at lunch, first thing, before seeing what other delicacies to enjoy. We've experienced Nassau on several cruises, so we make a point to hang out on the ship and skip this port. the weather was great so we lounged in the adult area on the upper deck and enjoyed the sun, a great drink and read a book or napped in the heat. Castawy Cay is absolutely beautiful. the adult areas are always clean and well maintained. Again, the weather was warm, but a little windy, but not enough to hamper our beach time. The drink service was great and lunch on the island was outstanding. We live for Castaway Cay and would love another 3-day cruise if they only went there and skipped Nassau all together. Just happened to run into Goofy on the upper Deck on evening and got some great shots with him. We didn't go to any of the shows. Our only disappointment was this cruise was only 3 nights. We've never been on one that short and it really seemed to fly by. we just love Disney Cruises. Read Less

My husband and I were traveling on the Disney Dream for a 4 night cruise with my daughter, her husband and their 7 and 5 year old daughters. What a cruise !!! Our assigned boarding time from the online check in was 12:30, but we arrived at the port at 10:30. We had to wait for the terminal security to open at 11 am, and this was the slowest part of boarding the ship. Once we went thru security, we waited about 20 minutes to get to the check in desk. Since we checked in online, this process was only 5 minutes. We were assigned to boarding group 20, and it moved swiftly....we had perfect timing as our picture with Minnie was complete when they announced our group. After that, it was minutes until we got on the ship where we were announced as we boarded. The kids loved that. The stateroom was not ready until 1:30, so we went to the Animiators Place for lunch. It was the beginning of 4 nights of great food. Even the Canana buffet was great! We were the early dining group and it worked out perfect to see the fabulous shows in the Walt Disney Theater at 8:30. The three shows that we saw, The Golden Mickeys, I Believe, and Beauty and the Beast were Broadway quality. (We did not go to the Halloween movie). Get to the theater early if you want a good seat....no later than 8. Castaway Cay is unbelievable. The most pristine beach, perdect for a day on the beach. Great buffet lunch of ribs, burgers and hot dogs in a perfect setting. The employees work hard to make the private island perfect. We went to the adult area and had massages which were one of the best that we have ever had. The pirate party was amazing....go early to sit on the deck and the show goes on over your head. The fireworks were unreal also. For the day at sea, chairs around the pool are at a premium if you want shade. So many people save seats and then they never show up at the chairs. But I don't know how Disney can control that unless they remove items left on the chairs. And make sure you go on the AquaDuck. It is so much fun. Our thanks to Heidy and Franco, our servers, for making every dinner fun. The cabin was spotless and the bathroom situation on our balcony room was perfect....2 small bathroom, one with a tub/shower and sink and the other with toilet and sink. I could get ready while my husband showered. Lots of room with the raised bed for your luggage underneath. My granddaughters loved the bunk bed situation with the stars on the ceiling. We put our bags out of the cabin by 10:30 that night and they picked up promptly. We waited about half an hour at customs. We've sailed on Carnival, NCL, Royal Caribean and Celebrity. Disney by far has the best attributes of any of the other cruise lines. While more expensive, you feel like you get yur money's worth. Other hints: don't waste you time getting off the boat in Nassau. The pool is less crowded and you are not missing anything in town. Get off the ship as soon as you can in Castaway Cay....you can get a better chair with more shade. Go to the sit down restaurant for breakfast for a more civil start to the day. We went to the buffet only on Castaway Cay day for time purposes. Don't be afraid to buy some wifi time. The Dream had the best service of any ship we've been on. Allow time for the kids to be admitted to the kids club....it gets crowded for special events in the club. Read Less

This is our 4th Disney cruise, traveling with three boys ages 5, 4 & 2 years old. We've stayed in the Walt Disney Suite once before, and it really upgrades your trip beyond belief! Concierge on board attentive to details, they care about the smallest details and assure your perfect vacation. The staff that assisted on this trip Angeline, Christine & the infamous Danny. The checkin at Port Canaveral on this trip was a bit disappointing. Usually once they check you in at Concerige they'll give you the lanyards for your cards which never happened, and someone is assigned to walk you on board and take you up to the lounge. The person who escorted us left us at the entrance to the ship, and as we were making our way to the elevators a staff member came and escorted us to an elevator pushed the button and let us go up on our own. Not a huge deal, but sometimes it's the small stuff that's noticed when you're expecting it and it's not delivered. The cruise ship was busy because it was labor day weekend, and lots of kids in their last week of summer vacation with a big bang. Although the crowds were big, the lines were not bad - the character greetings were reasonably timed, cabanas had good service and turned tables quick. We ordered Palos to our room one night, the food came on time and was delicious. Our room attendants were wonderful, attentive, and cared about the integrity of the room and the smiles on our faces. Open bar as always in the lounge 5-10pm, always with generous portions and with wonderful service. The only thing I can say about the lounge (as well as other ships) when I notice someone asking for a specific wine that's pretty common to get - they tell them they don't have it, instead of going the extra mile to grab it from another bar which can easily be done. They prefer not to make clean margaritas because of the time consuming, but they'll do it when it's slow. Cabana, OMG have you had one? This is the FIRST time we've had one, what in the world have we been thinking about not doing this before? It was WONDERFUL! The concerige staff convinced us to get one because they knew we would appreciate it, and they were so right. Our boys really wanted to ride the tram as always, but they do offer golf cart ride from the ship straight to the cabana if desired. Once at the cabana, you can push a button and they will come to your room if you need to order drinks, more towels, anything else you desire or a ride to grab food or go to other parts of the island. Bathrooms are right outside of the cabana. For those traveling with little ones, they have pack n plays already inside for you. It is a MUST HAVE if you can grab one. Do yourself a favor, go on a Disney Cruise....if you don't get the Royal Suite at least consider concerige - it is worth every penny! * Open bar 5-10pm * Conceirge land to assist with reservations prior to arrival & personal requests * Priority walk on and walk off * Conceirge lounge with high quality food spread throughout the day * Unlimted water, sodas, milk, etc in room * Two stateroom attendants, dedicated to concerige suites on each side * Priority show tickets & character tickets * Priority cabana rental The list goes on..............

We sailed the Disney Dream for a 4 night cruise, and all we can say is "WOW!" Disney does cruising right. The entertainment was the best we had every seen on a cruise, and the friendliness and work ethic of the staff was exceptional. We cruised with kids ranging from 6-14, and there was something for everyone. Our oldest loved Vibe and Edge, and our youngest (who usually hate kids clubs) begged us to go back to the Oceaneer Lab again and again. We opted for the late dining (8:15) which was a bit tough for the little ones (6 and 7) but, honestly, we wouldn't have wanted the earlier seating. We heard from other people that they were rushed to be ready for the early dinner, and then their kids would fall asleep during the shows. The late dinner watches the shows at 6:15pm, and they were so fantastic that we would've hated for the kids to be too tired to watch them. Also, having the late dinner seating meant our disembarkation breakfast was at 8 am (not at 6:15! Which is what the early dinner seating gets assigned). Embarkation and disembarkation were flawless. We took the Disney bus to and from the airport, which was about a 40 min drive. TIPS: 1. If your child gets a band for the Oceaneer Club, make sure to return it before 11pm the night before disembarkation. The $12.95 for the band will get credited back to your account. If you forget, your child gets to keep the band but you pay the $12.95. 2. Take the time to get to know your servers, Stateroom host, etc. Disney employees on this ship have the most amazing life stories! And they are such hard working, friendly people. 3. Yes, there are a LOT of kids on this cruise. It's Disney. I've read other reviews where people complain about the number of kids and that the cruise is not adult friendly. In my opinion, there are PLENTY of activities for adults only (Spa, tastings, etc). However, if you want to take a cruise where you don't see kids, don't do Disney. Read Less
