Come Sail Away- Disney Style
The Disney Dream
The Disney Dream continues the Disney Cruise Line tradition of blending the elegant grace of early 20th century transatlantic ocean liners with contemporary design to create one of the most stylish and spectacular cruise ships afloat. The Disney Dream offers modern features, new innovations and unmistakable Disney touches.
Come Sail Away
The “imagineers” at Disney have outdone themselves again. Launching January 26, 2011 is the Dream, the latest in the fleet of ships, adding to the Disney Wonder and the Disney Magic. We got a sneak peak this past week in New York City and we just had to share it with you.
The District is an adults-only section of the ship that caters to more sophisticated tastes. With five different types of lounges, bars and nightspots for dancing, there’s plenty to do after-dark. Disney Cruise Line’s signature Palo is haute couture in dining, while Senses is on board with their luxury spa services and hydrotherapy, 17 private treatment rooms and spa villas with private outdoor verandahs.
Disney Cruise Line introduces a cruise industry innovation on the Disney Dream with the debut of AquaDuck, the first-ever shipboard water coaster. Guests aboard the new Disney Dream can get swept away on the exhilarating high-speed flume ride which features twists, turns, drops, acceleration and river rapids – all while traversing the upper decks of the ship
One Size Fits All
There are plenty of things to do as a family, too, or just kids-stuff that suits all ages. From the live theatre to the animation/drawing classes to the “AquaDuck” water coaster — yes, we said water coaster, it’s a fun ride. AquaDuck is a high-speed flume ride that winds 765 feet over the ship’s deck. You’ll slide coaster like through a clear tube that swings out 13 feet over the ocean, for real bird’s-eye view, and splash down past a 335 foot stretch of river rapids.
Staterooms come in roomy standard and deluxe configurations, with the deluxe rooms featuring outside cabins and private balconies, while the standard staterooms, if on the inside berths, feature a “virtual” porthole, which is a live feed from the ship’s cameras, and shows you what it’s like outside, at all times of day and night, without actually being outside. 2011 may seem like a far away date, but Disney is taking bookings starting November 9, 2009.
