The Disney Dream cruise ship sails around the Bahamas (we chose a 5 day 4 night cruise as our first family cruise in 2013 and did the exact same cruise a second time in December 2018) and is one of the most beautiful cruise ships we’ve been on.
This is the ship that got us hooked on cruising with Disney.
Decorated in Art Deco style, the Disney Dream has 14 decks with the most popular (and busy) being the Deck 3 and Deck 11.
Everyone boards the Disney Dream cruise ship with cast members announcing your arrival “Welcome _____ family!” followed by a short round of applause and cheers.
It made the kids feel special and I will admit it, I kind of felt like I was part of the royal family. HA!
Disney Dream Deck 3 – Lobby & Atrium
Deck 3 is the lobby and atrium area of the ship. There is a bar, 2 restaurants, guest services and concierge, gift shops, the theatre on this deck and several character meet and greets take place here.

The hallway that leads to the gift shops and theatre.

Disney Dream Deck 11 – Pools, Cabanas & Counter Service Dining Options
Aquaduck and Nemo’s Reef, an adult only pool and bar section, several counter service dining options -think ice cream, pizza, chicken fingers, sandwiches – and a drink station are all on Deck 11.
Cabanas is an indoor/outdoor dining area which serves buffet style breakfast and lunch and is decorated like a cabana with colorful awnings, seagulls from Finding Nemo and 2 mosaic tile walls.
One of the two mosaic tile Finding Nemo scenes inside Cabanas. My photo doesn’t do it justice!
The spa and salon is also located on Deck 11 (there are some treatment rooms on Deck 12 as well) but I don’t have any pictures as I didn’t spend time there – next cruise maybe!
The Sail Away Party as well as the Pirate Party on the last night take place on Deck 11 as well.
Deck 3 and 11 is where we spent most of our time during our 5 days at sea as did many families with young children. Very relaxing and quiet on port days but quite busy on non port days.
Have you cruised on the Disney Dream? We’d love to hear what you thought about this Disney cruise ship!
