The Disney Dream Cruise Liner Is Ready For Launch

By Jason Forthofer

Disney has just introduced its fourth cruise ship into its famous Disney Cruise Line fleet. The brand new “Disney Dream” is slated to set sail on its first journey January 26, 2011. This enormous, fun-filled vessel is destined to bring loads of Disney magic, excitement and pure-amazement to all travelers who embark upon its decks. The cruise liner’s extravagance and exotic port destinations will make this an adventure that will not be easily forgotten.

As usual, Disney designed the Disney Dream with families in mind, so there will definitely be plenty of activities to keep one occupied. The cruise liner weighs in at 128,000 tons and measures 1,115 feet long by 125 feet wide. Its design consists of 14 massive decks and 1,250 staterooms for its guests. It can accommodate up to 4,000 passengers, which doesn’t even include the 1,458 crew members of the ship.

Disney Dream’s interior decor incorporates 20th-century Art Deco designs along with state-of-the-art technology. It still follows the traditional and distinctive Disney exterior design with its gold decorative detailing adorning the ship’s side. Guests will have access to restaurants, shops, recreational facilities, nightclubs and more.


The guest staterooms introduce an industry first, a split-style bathroom that’s perfect for families. The six Disney themed dining options consist of two adult-only dining areas called the “Remy” and the “Palo” along with three main dining restaurants, the “Animator’s Palate,” “the Enchanted Garden,” and the “Royal Palace.”

The Disney Dream’s entertainment includes daily activities such as, family-fun deck parties and character greetings. There are debut films and digital 3-D movies shown in the “Buena Vista Theatre” and “Walt Disney Theatre.”

Younger guests can visit the controlled and monitored youth clubs, which offer activities for the “tweens and teens.” There is a “Small World Nursery” for the little ones, and themed areas where older kids can watch television, play video games, surf the internet or listen to music. There’s even an animation studio where children can draw their own animated designs. The “Sound Studio,” allows children to create their own music, while the “Craft Studio” lets little artists create their own hands-on arts and crafts projects.

Other attractions include the first ever, at sea; “water coaster” ride called the “AquaDuck.” This elevated “water coaster” was designed especially for the Disney Dream. It propels riders on a thrill-filled adventure inside tubes of water, around, up, down and even “off” the side of the ship. The final stop will drop riders into a lazy pool, all done with safety in mind, of course. There are also three themed freshwater pools aboard the ship, one catering to kids, one for adults-only and one for families. For the little guests, there’s “Nemo’s Reef” which is a water play area for kids with bubblers, fountains and pop jets. It features characters from the Disney-Pixar film, “Finding Nemo.”

The eleven nightclubs and lounges allow adults and children to enjoy dancing and live music aboard the ship, or they can participate in a variety of games and activities instead. Adults can also visit the numerous bars and cocktail areas.

Presently, the Disney Cruise Line is putting the final touches on its Disney Dream cruise liner. More surprises may be in store by the time it leaves port on its first journey in January. With all these amenities, families and individuals are sure to find this Disney magic adventure a worthwhile treat.
