Disney Dream Cruise Review by KaTaHo
- Sail Date: March 2013
- Destination: Bahamas
There were several things about this trip that were unique from my previous cruise experiences. I really enjoyed the smaller dining rooms and the rotational dining. It was fun having dinner each night in a new place, but with our same wonderful wait staff. We had a balcony cabin and the split bathroom (two rooms - one with sink and water closet, the other with sink and shower) was great for two gals traveling together and getting ready. The photo area was amazingly organized with all of our pictures from the cruise in one folder. No spending hours wandering around looking for our pictures. The debarkation at the end of the trip was so easy. We went to breakfast at our assigned time. Had a full sit down meal and then walked off the ship when we were done. Simply...easy!
The adult ares of the ship were very nice. Fun bars and clubs. It was great to go get a drink before dinner. The shows were very well done albeit pure Disney. Fireworks at sea were something I've never experienced before and quite spectacular.
The only area that I felt was really lacking was the adult pool area. It was very plain, not many chairs and not particularly inviting. It almost seemed an afterthought.
We had a fantastic time and I will definitely look at Disney the next time I get ready to plan a cruise.

Castaway CayLoved Disney's private island. Plenty of chairs, beautifully maintained. It was a great place to wander around, eat, drink and just be a beach bum.View All 410 Castaway Cay Cruise Port Reviews

NassauWe purchased a day pass at the British Colonial Hilton. We wanted a quiet, easy, low key day. We got just that. The $60 dollar day pass per person purchased online via Island Marketing was a great value. The pass gave us complete access to all the outdoor beach and pool area had to offer and included a $40 credit for food and drinks (and yes, that included alcohol). It was an easy walk from the port. The staff was very friendly, welcoming and helpful. There are a few downsides to this location. First, the beach and pool are very small. Secondly, the body of water by the beach is the traffic lane for all of the giant cruise ships. I love watching the ships come in, but due to this traffic, the water seems a bit dirty and I had no desire to get in it. Overall, it was a great place to pass an afternoon reading in a comfy chair with a yummy beverage.View All 5,278 Nassau Cruise Port Reviews
