The Disney Dream Cruise Ship Is Definitely A Dream Come True!
The Disney Dream is the next ship in the Disney Cruise Line family and will be the third ship for Disney Cruise Line when it sets sail in 2011.
This ship will really be something special when it is ready to launch.
In February 2007, Disney Cruise Line announced the plans for two new ships to add to the Disney cruise ships family.
They made the first steel cut in March 2009 at the Meyer Werft shipyards in Papenburg, Germany for the Disney Dream.
Later that month, the two ships were named.
The Disney Dream is set to sail in 2011. This magical cruise ship will be followed by its sister vessel, the Disney Fantasy, which is set to sail in 2012.
The Disney Dream was revealed at a Disney Cruise Line press conference in New York City, on October 29th, 2009.
How Big Is The Disney Dream?
All of the specifications of the Disney Dream are already being publicized. It is 1,115 feet long, 125 feet wide at its widest area, which means it is too large to pass through the Panama Canal.
The "Dream" of the Disney Cruise Line family has 14 decks, which will include a total of 1,250 staterooms. The vessel has a 128,000 tonnage. This means it can comfortably accommodate 4,000 guests.
It will take more than 1,458 members of the crew to take care of these guests during the cruises.
This magnificent ship is using all up-to-date technology along with a very classic design based on the early part of the 20th century. Sounds like a trip back to the time when cruising was at its best!
What Style Will The Disney Dream Portray?
The same eye for detail is being used with this magnificent vessel as with the other ships in the Disney fleet. Sophisticated, elegant style mixed with the Disney's great fantasy and ability to tell a story.
Through the art deco designs Disney is creating a wonderful atmosphere.
What Is This I Hear About A Water Coaster?
This cruise ship will introduce the first water coaster at sea, called "The AquaDuck". The AquaDuck goes along the side of the Disney cruise ship.
You and your kids (48-inch height requirement) enter it on deck 12 and journey down, up, and around through a tube made of acrylic.
You get to ride on it for a full 765 feet and it drops a total of 4 decks.
For the little kids there is Mickey's Pool.
This has Mickey Mouse's face delightfully on the pool's bottom.
The shape of the pool is that of Mickey too. It also has a depth of 2 feet.
There is Donald's Pool for the families, which nearby has the Funnel Vision, which is a huge TV screen showing Disney classic animation for the family's to watch.
This screen measures 24 feet x 14 feet and is LED technology.
Donald’s Pool also has an eating area with Flo's Café and transforms into a dance floor and stage for scheduled activities. Fun in the sun with your family, this has to sound so nice to you?
For adult swimming you can escape the kids at the Quiet Cove Pool, which is for anyone 18 years or older.
