Disney Dream Cruise Review by mrstielowe
- Sail Date: August 2012
- Destination: Bahamas
Castaway Cay was clean and organized. My husband and 11 year old went on a fishing excursion and loved the fishes they caught even though it was a catch-and-release. Our son did get a little sea sick during the event. The ships crew members were very helpful and always willing to make our voyage even better. Our cabin hostess was excellent, polite, and welcoming. The next time we do another Disney cruise, we'd avoid the Pirate Night activity on the top deck. There were too many young children with their plastic swords swinging and fighting anyone they thought would join. Their parents seem to be too busy in the show that was going on while we couldn't watch the show, trying to dodge their swords. The crew members did not seem to want to intervene and set limits with the kids. Next time, we'd watch the fireworks from a different deck.
At Nassau, I didn't want to go to Atlantis. It seems that it was the hyped excursion that everyone was going to do, so we chose to go to Blue Lagoon Island for their beach. It was a beautiful beach with clear blue waters. Lunch was included which was nothing special (burgers, chicken breast burger, or hot dogs, fruits and a drink). There was quite a wait for the extra beverages included in this excursion, so you have to call the staff's attention.
I do wish they had more activities after midnight though. The food area closed at around that time. Disney allows alcohol to be brought on the ship so that helped. They also have free soda on the top deck. We had a fabulous time and have placed a deposit on another cruise.
