The Disney Dream cruise is the latest of the Disney cruise liners, and with a capacity of 4,000 passengers and 1,250 staterooms, it’s bigger and better than ever. The ship is 40% larger than the company’s two previous liners for more space and activities for passengers to enjoy. The six-year-old ship travels the Bahamas over a Disney fun-filled four-day journey. The ship leaves from Port Canaveral, stopping in Nassau and Castaway Cay in the Bahamas before returning to Port Canaveral.
The Disney Dream features numerous entertainment features for all ages and interests. For those with younger children, the esteemed Disney kids’ club, The Oceaneer Club, includes several kid play rooms like the Millennium Falcon room for your little Jedi and a video game centered Disney Infinity room for the die-hard gamer in your life. Of course, kids can also swim the day away in the Children’s Pool and numerous water slides. For Disney movie fans, a Disney theater is located on the fourth floor showing movies from Disney’s beginning all the way up to the 2017 live action Beauty and the Beast. Of course, the piece de resistance of any Disney liner is the onboard live-action characters. Snap a few pics with a princess or take a stroll with the Mouse himself. Many find the characters on Disney cruise liners to be far more accessible than at Disney parks and with a much lower cost.
For parents and close-to-adult kids, the Disney Dream also has a number of attractions including Las Vegas-style productions, an adult-only pool for relaxation, a full-service spa, and multiple adult-only areas such as bars, lounges, nightclubs, and sun decks. For parents worried they won’t be able to get away, professionally staffed group babysitting is available on board.
The Disney Dream cruise is perfect for families with young kids or those who are young at heart.
Please note that sometimes it is cheaper to book two staterooms or two connecting cabins instead of one large stateroom suite - plus it gives you a second bathroom.
