2013 Disney Cruises
The Disney Dream came into service this January and guests have begun
embarking on innovation-infused journeys aboard a 4,000-passenger cruise
ship where technology has been translated into eye-popping, jaw-dropping
experiences – where activities, mealtimes and pastimes elicit smiles,
giggles, "wows" and squeals of delight … and occasionally will take your
There's a first-of-its-kind water coaster that sends guests racing above
the upper decks of the ship. An animated turtle engages children in
conversation about life in the ocean. Kids join Peter Pan on a virtual
flight above London.
Talk about a "see cruise": On this newest ship of the Disney Cruise Line
fleet, atrium "paintings" come to life. Guests in inside staterooms peer
at a real-time view of the ocean outside. In a sophisticated lounge, the
sun sets over the skyline of a different world-famous city each night.
Just as Disney Cruise Line revolutionized the cruise industry with ships
designed especially for families, the Disney Dream is technologically
refining and enhancing world-class entertainment and legendary Disney
guest services to offer a cruise experience that both caters to every
guest and enthralls them. The Disney Dream experience elevates
entertainment to new heights, transforms mealtimes into occasions with a
full course of fun, and even makes quiet times memorable.
Yet for all its wonderment and whimsy, the Disney Dream is warm and
welcoming, featuring an elegant, richly detailed art deco interior
design � throughout its entire 1,115-foot length, in its 1,250
staterooms and suites, its theaters and restaurants and clubs and
The Disney Dream will sail alternating three- and four-night cruises
from Port Canaveral, Fla., to the Bahamas and Disney's private island,
Castaway Cay. During summer months, the ship will alternate four- and
five-night itineraries with two stops at Castaway Cay.
Distinctly Disney features guests will discover aboard the ship include:
AquaDuck Water Coaster…
Disney Cruise Line debuts a cruise-industry first: a shipboard water
coaster… AquaDuck! Guests aboard the Disney Dream will get swept away on
an exhilarating high-speed flume ride featuring twists, turns, drops,
uphill acceleration and river rapids – all while traversing the upper
decks of the ship.
Some 765 feet in length and spanning four decks in height, AquaDuck
utilizes high-powered water jets that gush some 10,000 gallons of water
per minute to push riders upward and forward – and at one jaw-dropping
point take guests 13 feet over the side of the ship in a translucent
"swing out" loop allowing them to look down on the ocean 150 feet below.
A Magical Porthole for Inside Staterooms…
Disney Cruise Line introduces another innovation with all inside
staterooms on the Disney Dream featuring a Magical Porthole that
provides guests with a real-time view outside the ship. High-definition
cameras placed on the exterior of the ship feed live video to each
As guests observe the impressive outside views, they may glimpse a
magical surprise: animated characters such as Peach the starfish from
the Disney ·Pixar film "Finding Nemo," the flying balloon house from the
Disney ·Pixar film "UP" or even Mickey Mouse.
A Magical Oasis for Children…
Only on a Disney Cruise Line ship can children become immersed in their
favorite Disney stories with the help of caring counselors, beloved
Disney characters and a sprinkling of pixie dust. The celebration of
children's creativity rises to a new level on the Disney Dream with
nearly an entire deck of youth spaces designed to inspire, entertain and
unlock the imagination of children ages 3 to 10.

such as Crush, the sea turtle from the Disney Pixar motion picture
"Finding Nemo," and Stitch, the mischievous alien from "Lilo & Stitch."
The characters chat, play and joke with children in live, unrehearsed
conversations from their digital undersea and intergalactic environments
via giant plasma screens.
Both venues also feature a Magic PlayFloor, a cruise industry first that
blends the latest in gaming technology with Disney's panache for
storytelling. The interactive floor allows children to engage in group
activities where their movements control the action. Activities include
controlling the pitch of a virtual tilt maze, flying over the streets of
London with Peter Pan and riding the ocean waves with Crush.
Chill-Out Zones for Tweens and Teens…
Located inside the forward funnel of the Disney Dream is Edge, a lounge
just for tweens (ages 11 to 13). This tween pad is filled with a
multitude of hi-tech entertainment including the ability to create and

personalized service each night. Restaurants include:

good-bye," the family entertainment aboard the Disney Dream is
mesmerizing and memorable. Live theatrical productions, family-friendly
"game-show" experiences, first-run Disney movies and high-energy deck
parties are just some of the entertainment young and old will enjoy
together. The spectacles literally elevate cruise ship entertainment to
new heights as a little mermaid soars over a stage in a stunning aerial
ballet, pirates rappel from atop the ship's funnel during a
