Wow, wow, wow! We took the Disney Dream from Port Canaveral on a 5 night cruise and it was simply awesome. Disney is the number one in entertainment and customer service. Characters all around, family game shows, adult entertainment, broadway style shows — phenomenal! We were lucky to go twice to Castaway Cay (Disney's private island at the Bahamas) and this place was built to get passengers from the Disney ships. If I've been to something close to paradise, then Castaway Cay is the place.
My husband and I took our four boys on the Disney Dream in Oct 2011. Our children were aged 6mths, 5, 8 and 10. It was the best holiday ever. The Dream is an amazing ship with so much to do. My boys loved the kids club. We enjoyed the dining experiences and the staff do everything possible to make sure you have a great time. We will definately be cruising with DCL again in the future.
