Disney Cruises' Ship Maintains Classic Art Deco Design
Some of my favorite indoor features continued on the Disney Dream from the other ships are the huge portholes with window seats, a spectacular chandelier in the atrium lobby, and the huge theaters with great sight lines from every seat. One small difference--the Disney Magic has a statue of Mickey Mouse at the helm in the atrium, and the Disney Dream has a statue of Donald Duck.
Adults will love the Senses Spa & Salon and the large fitness center. They will also appreciate the lovely interior decor.
Kids will love the age-appropriate kid's areas. For example, the Disney Oceaneer Club on deck 5 has a 103-inch plasma screen for watching movies and interacting with Crush, the "Finding Nemo" sea character who also appears in the Animator's Palate restaurant. Other features such as the Magic PlayFloor, Andy's Room, and Monster's Academy make me wish I were age 3-10 again.
These photos provide an overview of just some of the interior areas of the Disney Dream cruise ship.

This picture of Mickey Mouse has eyes that blink. This subtle motion is not as dramatic as many of the other enchanted art on the ship, but it was my favorite.
Disney Dream - Bambi Enchanted Art
This Bambi picture brings back fond memories of the original Disney film. Watching Thumper, Flower, and Bambi come to life is great fun.
