We’re back from an extended cruise vacation and it is time to start blogging again! Here’s a video from Disney today showing the real Disney Dream (not a model or simulation) – the final “block” of the ship was put in place today. We can’t wait to sail on the Dream in January! (we’ll have a full report on our familytravelgurus website in February)
Disney Cruise Line has added a new waterslide at their private island, Castaway Cay, which looks like fun!
Last month Disney published a video that really captures the Disney cruise experience in just 2 1/2 minutes:
More details are slowly coming out about the new Disney Dream cruise ship, with her first sailing in January. Last week Disney announced a 2nd “adults only” restaurant, Remy, that they describe as “the Victoria and Albert’s at sea”. Remy will be in addition to the long time Disney favorite Palo on the Dream.
“The best and most memorable excursion for us was in Cozumel. We booked the ATX Rail Expedition through Shore Trips and it was a blast.
Disney Cruise Line continues to be a great option for a family vacation. We’ve been on many cruises with our kids and while most ships we’ve experienced have had excellent kids programs, Disney’s offerings are unique. We especially like that Disney kids clubs are open for more hours when compared to other lines (9 am to midnight with no extra charge for late night hours). The shows in the big theatre are more family oriented on Disney than what we have seen on other cruises, too. Here’s a short video from Disney on the features of the Disney Cruise Line kids program:
Disney yesterday announced details on the first of their two new ships – the Disney Dream. The Disney Dream will sail 3,4, and 5 night Bahamas cruises from Port Canaveral, Florida starting January 26, 2011. We are already receiving a number of requests for Disney Dream reservations from our clients. This new addition to the Disney Cruise family is sure to be popular!
