  3. Disney Dream
We booked a Disney cruise after speaking to several people that have taken them and after reading reviews. We booked a 1 bedroom concierge suite which was great but not worth the extra charge. Checkin at Port Canaveral was at the "Concierge Desk" but it still took about 20 minutes. They then walked us to our deck and were told the room was ready. Our room 11008 had 2 full bathrooms, a dining area, a huge jetted tub, a nice size balcony and 2 TV's. The balcony was very noisy with kids running around above, below and beside us. We ate all three dinners in the formal dining rooms and should have gone to the fast food areas. The dining room food was terrible and there was NO..I repeat NO lobster. Out of 8 cruises (first on DCL) this was the very first time lobster was not served. We were very disappointed to say the least as were others around us. Our advise is to skip the formal dining rooms. Went to 2 of the 3 shows onboard. GREAT! Dont miss them and we recommend enter the theater from deck 4 and sit in the balcony. Popcorn was 3.50 a bag... There was a small pool area for adults only but it was not very appealing as the view was not very good from it. We spent most of our sundeck time on the forward deck 12 which was very nice. There was a small waterfall area there to cool off. Also plenty of towels so dont worry about bringing your own. The private island adult area was spectacular. Lots of chairs and umbrellas. The water was beautiful and the BBQ was just ok. Our advise is to take the kids on a DCL cruise but if you want a nice peaceful time take a different cruise line. ALso, if you take a cruise for the food....pass on DCL. Im sorry this is a pretty negative review but I guess my expectations were just too high.

Very disappointed with DCL.
