The Dream was a success!
Embarkation: Port Canaveral (Orlando)
Our main concern with Disney was the kids club and how our very shy DD would do in that setting. I have read many reviews that have stated concerns about the Oceaneers Club and the freedom they have to go from the Club to the Oceaneer Lab, which is for the older kids. I thought our daughter would get lost in the shuffle and not have a good time. Boy was I wrong. The counselors were aware of her shyness, but explained they would do their best to get her involved in organized activities. Not only did they do that, there were a couple of excellent More counselors we kept on seeing that really helped her participate in organized activities. They definately went out of there way and by the end of our back to back cruises, they all knew her name and gave her big hugs and she gave the hugs right back.
Castaway Cay was fabulous. Being from California I was hoping for a really nice beach area and boy it blew me away.
Overall, we all enjoyed the Dream and actually booked the Fantasy for next spring. Everything was great and it was one of the top cruises we have taken...yes the pool area is crazy small and sometimes ridiculousy crowded with kids, but other aspects push the Dream up to a successful vacation experience.
