Disneyland Park, Haunted Mansion Stretch Painting

A Room with a View

posted on November 11th, 2009 by Jonathan Frontado, Disney Cruise Line


Hey Disney Parks Blog readers! As promised, I’m going to start sharing blog posts about individual elements of the Disney Dream. My first deep dive is going to take us to the staterooms of the ship.

Let me start by sharing one of the coolest features of the Disney Dream. All inside staterooms will feature Virtual Portholes that offer a “window” to the world with a real-time view outside the ship.

High-definition cameras placed on the exterior of the ship feed live video to each Virtual Porthole. Guests may even glimpse a magical visit from a Disney friend. Take a look…

Nearly nine out of 10 of the 1,250 staterooms on the Disney Dream are outside rooms, and of those, 90 percent have a private verandah. There are 500 connecting doors adjoining staterooms to accommodate those traveling with large parties.

Stateroom with Private Verandah

For those looking to sail in the lap of luxury the Disney Dream will feature 21 suites. These have two luxurious bathrooms, large private verandah, walk-in closet, living room, 42-inch, high-definition LCD televisions and Blu-ray disc player.

Suite with Verandah

Disney Cruise Line’s signature royal suites – the Walter E. Disney Suite and the Roy O. Disney Suite – are also featured on the Disney Dream. Extravagant details include a whirlpool hot tub on the private teak wood verandah, master bath with whirlpool tub, rain shower and sweeping ocean views through the floor-to-ceiling windows lining the main living quarters.

Next post we’ll be taking a closer look at the dining options aboard the Disney Dream.

We have never been on a cruise before & we are so excited about this the Wonder! What a perfect way to start cruising & have our inaugural cruise be with Disney! I am very excited about the virtual port holes ~ what an amazing concept!

Are you going to take the virtual portholes away as soon as the technology becomes obsolete?

Since it seems there is a great deal of new technology coming to the new ships, are you going to retire the Magic and Wonder? They seem to have lots of obsolete technology like the recently retired Lights of Winter.

The new ships look great right now. However, with all the stuff taking place including the removal of Lights of Winter and lack of Space Mountain refurbishment, can the new ships be renamed the Disney Disappointment and Disney Mediocrity?

The new staterooms look gorgeous! The verandah rooms look huge and so modern. And the virtual portholes are genius. What a great idea!

I am so EXCITED about my already booked cruise on the Disney Dream in Feb 2011. We’ve got an inside stateroom on Deck 7. Can’t wait to see my virtual porthole!!!

I am very excited about the Dream, and have booked my stateroom on the Maiden Voyage. However, I fear that someday the “tech to operate the ships” may become obsolete, and they all may have to be retired. And, maybe you can let us know on twitter?

Our first experience cruising was on the Disney Wonder last spring. WOW, it was great! The Dream certainly DOES look and sound like a dream! I can’t wait. Thanks for providing this inside look.
