Overview of Disney Dream Cruise Ship Cabins and Suites
The Disney Dream cruise ship has 1,250 cabins and suites, of which 901 have balconies and another 199 have ocean views. The 150 inside cabins have a "magical" porthole that provides guests with a video view of what's outside the ship.
Since the Disney Dream has beds for 4,000 guests, many of the 1,250 cabins and suites can sleep up to four guests. To accommodate larger families and groups traveling together, there are 500 staterooms with connecting doors. For groups wishing to sail in more luxurious cabins, the Disney Dream provides adjacent, concierge-level accommodation for up to 25 guests with four suites and two staterooms – all joined by connecting doors.

One-Bedroom Suite Living Room
The Disney Dream has 21 suites on decks 11 and 12 with Concierge Service--2 Royal Suites and 19 one bedroom suites with a balcony. The one bedroom suites are 622 square feet and sleep 5. Most connect to a concierge stateroom that also sleeps five. When the cabin and suite are combined, a large family group can share the spacious area.
The suites have a larger balcony, walk-in closets, separate living room with Blu-ray disc player, two 42-inch high-definition televisions (one in the bedroom and the second in the living room), dining table with chairs, and Wave phones to use onboard. The suites also have deluxe Frette linens and towels, bathrobes, and Elemis toiletries. Guests also can choose from a selection of different pillows.
One-Bedroom Suite Bedroom
The one-bedroom suites on the Disney Dream cruise ship have a nice-sized separate sleeping area. Frette linens are used for the sheets and feather duvet covers. Suite guests can choose from a selection of either hypo-allergenic, goose down, or therapeutic memory foam pillows.
One-Bedroom Suite Dining Room
The Disney Dream suites all have a separate dining room with chairs. Isn't the view terrific? I can just imagine having room service breakfast or dinner at this table.
One-Bedroom Suite Bathroom
The one-bedroom suite on the Disney Dream cruise ship has a separate tub and shower, dual sinks, and granite and marble finishes. Frette towels and Elemis toiletries add to the luxury experience.
The two Royal Suites, 19 one-bedroom suites, and 20 family oceanview cabins with balconies on decks 11 and 12 of the Disney Dream all have Concierge Service. This service includes access to the Concierge Lounge on deck 12 that includes a bar, Internet lounge, large screen TV, and complimentary snacks and beverages.
The Disney Dream concierge team will provide personalized service to the suite and concierge cabin guests such as make reservations for spa treatments, specialty dining, shore excursions, or nursery care for the kids. The concierge-level guests also have an exclusive sun deck area on deck 13 with luxurious sun lounges, misters, and refreshments.
With 306 square feet, the Concierge Class family oceanview stateroom with verandah is larger than a deluxe family oceanview stateroom with verandah (241 square feet). In addition, the furniture is plusher and it includes the concierge service.
Deluxe Family Oceanview Cabin with Verandah
The deluxe family oceanview cabin with verandah (balcony) on the Disney Dream has plenty of space to sleep four. The first noticeable difference from balcony cabins on other ships is the split bathroom. One bathroom has a vanity, sink, and full tub/shower, while the other bathroom has a vanity, sink, and toilet. Even with just two persons in the cabin, it is nice to have the two sinks and vanity areas.
The other noticeable difference is the height of the queen-sized bed. It is high enough off the floor to store large suitcases and other travel items. However, unlike queen-sized beds on other cruise ships, this bed cannot be split into twin beds. If two people are sharing the room who do not wish to sleep together, one has to sleep on the sofa bed. I thought this might be a problem, but the bed was comfortable and the cabin steward will make it into a sofa by day and a bed by night.
The fourth bed in the Disney Dream deluxe family oceanview cabin is a pulldown Pullman bed. One nice touch for this bed is the celestial scene covering the entire ceiling of the Pullman.
The cabins have a nautical, art-deco design, with a few Mickey-logos scattered throughout. The deluxe family oceanview cabins also have a 22-inch LCD flat screen television, iPod docking station and lighted alarm clock, mini-refrigerator, safe, and premium toiletries. These amenities are also found in other Disney Dream cabins.
Deluxe Inside Cabin
The Disney Dream deluxe inside cabins measure 204 square feet. Many sleep four since they have a queen-sized bed, convertible sofa, and Pullman bed. They also have the split bath found in the oceanview cabins.
The Magical Porthole in the Disney Dream inside cabins is the most noticeable difference from other cruise ships. This large round monitor has a live video feed from cameras located on the port, starboard, bow, or stern of the ship, giving guests a real-time view of what's on the outside of the Disney Dream.
Deluxe Inside Cabin Pullman Bed
Dropping down the Pullman bed expands the sleeping capacity in the Disney Dream deluxe inside cabins to four.
