The atrium lobby is the heart of every Disney cruise ship. On the Disney Dream, the atrium lobby, including the grand staircase, is quickly taking shape at the Meyer Werft Shipyard in Papenburg, Germany.
Take a look at these construction images showing the sheer size of the lobby and a closer shot of the grand staircase structure.
Reminiscent of splendid ocean liners from 1920s and 1930s, the stylish sophistication of the atrium is highlighted by a sweeping grand staircase, oversized portholes and stunning, three-story fluted columns with glowing capitals. An exquisite marble floor inlaid with an intricate Art Deco pattern and hand-tufted custom rugs in rich blues, reds and golds span the atrium floor and staircase.
Opulent furnishings complement the atrium design, with a grand piano providing atmosphere. Overhead, a dazzling chandelier, more than 13-feet wide and descending more than 13 feet from the ceiling, sparkles with hundreds of hand-crafted crystal beads.
