Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, and the Model of the Disney Dream
Preview of Cabins, Common Areas, and Exciting New Features of the Disney Dream
Before the Disney Dream cruise ship launched, Disney Cruise Line announced some exciting features of the new ship and issued the preview images shown in this photo gallery.
Some of the innovative features of the Disney Dream include the industry's first-ever water coaster, AquaDuck; virtual portholes in the inside cabins; enchanted art in the common areas, "living", interactive characters in Disney's Oceaneer Lab, and The District, an adults-only nighttime entertainment area. Adults will also enjoy the 16,000-square-foot spa.
Disney continues the rotational dining that is so popular on its other ships. Passengers rotate (with their servers and table mates) amongst three dining rooms during the cruise. The ship also features Palo, Disney's signature adults-only restaurant, and Remy, an upscale premium adult restaurant.
As expected, the Disney Dream is a dream for children, with almost a whole... deck dedicated to spaces for kids ages 3 months to 17 years. Tweens and Teens even have their own separate areas, away from the younger kids.
