Disney Dream Review

Then we went into the buffet, I have to say that the Disney Dream has by far the best buffet that I have ever seen on ship. Not only they have a much better selection, but everything is rotated often and kept fresh and warm. The Disney Dream venue is also very cute, and it follows along with a finding Nemo theme, very cool. Finding a seat was not really challenging once we found out that there was no one the other side of the Buffet. And please don’t forget there the Disney Dream has unlimited supply of sodas, for us sodaholics. Service on the Disney Dream never lacks, there are servers everywhere and they remove your plates promptly after you’re finished. My guess is that they want you to clear the table fast for the next family coming in, but we never felt pressured. It is small details like the ones experienced in this buffet that make the Disney  Dream experience a very remarkable one.

I did not get pictures of it, but they also offered veal chops, cut fresh for you.

They decorate the polls with a palm tree.

Of course it did not take long for mom to drop a crab craw, and for me to cut my finger cracking another claw. But no worries after cleaning myself and covering it up I was ready for the next challenge . It was just a small cut, but a little deep. I hate how scandalous blood is. I took the picture of the cut, but ultimately decided not to post it, thought it might be a little inappropriate.

How cool that those two pictures link, that was not planned, lol.

Sarah got some ice cream. They did not have the Banana and strawberry available yet, they brought those out on the second and third day.

By the way the Disney Dream pool towel system is just like the one in Celebrity, you can grab as many as you want and just return them into a towel place or leave them anywhere. No need to worry about someone stealing your towel, and then you having to pay for it later on. I have to admit this is something that really bothers me about the other cruise lines. I am thinking about bringing my own from home from now on to avoid worrying over that. I had my towel stolen twice already on two separate cruise lines.

The Disney Dream spa is very neat, they offer multiple room and most of them are in over looking the bow of the ship.

They also have a facility called the rainforest that is very similar to the spa in Breakaway, but the difference is in the price. Disney only charges $18 per person per day vs whatever NCL decided to raised it this week to….

The Disney Dream Rain forest is a very nice area and it really shows how disney goes above and beyond to stand out from other cruise lines. I will let the pictures talk from now on. They also offer a more expensive version but it includes the scrubs (is that what they are called?) for you to use in the steam rooms to exfoliate yourself.

We gave it some thought on buying the one day pass, but ultimately we did not. I think it was just the fact that the cruise was going to be so short and I we wanted to experience more of the ship instead of being stuck in a particular area. The funny thing is that we did end up stuck on the adult pool for a lot of time, and the adult pool is adjacent to the spa… Go figure, oh well maybe next time.

I also want to point out that the entire staff is there to make you feel like you’re the only person aboard that ship. Disney service is on a league of their own, I think this is the cruise were I really noticed the least amount mistakes done. And the entire cruise was full of smiles and friendly staff, this is the way a cruise should be!

We also never noticed them pushing sales on us, it felt very much like Celebrity. The product is there for you to buy it, but they will never push you into it. They will just offer you the information you need to make an informed decision. Nicely done Disney!
