Sailed in December with my two 16 year old sons. We were in Concierge Class. This gave us several benefits. Personally escorted onboard to Concierge Lounge and skipped all embarkation lines. We did have to wait a while for bus from Orlando Airport to the dock, but once at the ship we flew onboard. Concierge Lounge is very nice and always had nice snacks available. Concierge class also seemed to give us really good tables in main dining rooms. The food on Disney Dream was very good, but I would not rate it outstanding. Often the food in the main dining rooms , while very tasty, was served lukewarm...certainly never hot. I prefer hot food. I did dine for Brunch in Palo and this was an excellent first class dining experience. If sailing Disney, I strongly recommend dining in Palo (or Remy) as much as possible! Unfortunately, you have to over age 18 to book Palo and Remy so my sons could not join me. I think the Disney ships are great for younger kids, but not so great for teenagers age 14 to 17. Many things that teenagers would like to do are not allowed since you have an age 18 barrier. Service in our cabin was excellent. Service in main dining room was OKAY, but did seem rushed. Service in Palo could not be beat. Excellent entertainment onboard. Broadway quality production of Beauty and the Beast. We also got to see the new Star Wars movie the same day it premiered in USA. Castaway Key is very good, but not as nice as some other private islands....HAL's Half Moon Cay is better. Overall Disney Dream is a fine cruise experience. Great attention to a lot of little details. However, the less then perfect food, crowded at times deck areas, and rushed dining room service prevent me from giving it an excellent rating.
Nice cabin. Convienent to Concierge Lounge. Very quiet. I would note it is basically same size as some of the cheaper Family cabins. But you get a full balcony added on.
Very nice beach for kids, but not the best I have seen. Adult beach is better, but again not as nice as HAL Half Moon Cay.
