Disney Dream Arrives in Hamburg

posted on November 22nd, 2010 by Christi Erwin Donnan, Manager of Public Affairs, Disney Cruise Line

The Disney Dream

Very early this morning, around 3 a.m. (German time), the Disney Dream cruise ship arrived in the port of Hamburg, Germany, where it will undergo a brief dry dock this week. This is part of the test-and-adjust phase of the construction process, and another step in the ship’s journey to completion. Afterward, the Disney Dream is scheduled to sail to Bremerhaven, where shipbuilder Meyer Werft will officially deliver the ship to Disney on Dec. 9.

The Disney Dream

The Disney Dream recently completed its float out and conveyance along the River Ems to the North Sea, where over the last two weeks it has undergone sea trials. In Bremerhaven, final supplies will be loaded, and the remaining crew members will board the ship before it sets sail for its home in Port Canaveral, Fla. The ship is scheduled to arrive just after the New Year, with its maiden voyage departing on Jan. 26, 2011.

Can you verify the date Dream will arrive at Port Canaveral? We have friends who are planning a visit around that event, and need to pin down the date. We hear rumors of Jan 4th; is that correct? We’ve got 2 cruises booked on her in ’11 – – May and DVC Member Cruise in Sept. Can’t wait!
