Sleeping Beauty's Winter Castle

Inside the Disney Dream

posted on November 23rd, 2010 by Jonathan Frontado, Disney Cruise Line


Can you believe it’s only been a few weeks since the Disney Dream made her public debut? So much has happened since then.

After the ship floated out from the dry dock where she was built in Papenburg, Germany, work has continued taking place all throughout her interior to prepare for the first Disney Cruise Line guests early next year.

In a couple of recent blog posts we asked what you wanted to see inside the Disney Dream so I’m thrilled to offer an exclusive peek at some of the fantastic spaces coming to life aboard the ship.

Here’s a view of the three-deck atrium lobby taken earlier this month. It’s the first sight that will greet guests when they board at Florida’s Port Canaveral.

The Art Deco Chandelier in the Lobby of the Disney Dream

Wow, huh? Now imagine what it will look like when finished.

The Art Deco chandelier was custom designed for the Disney Dream and measures seven meters in diameter. Decorated with Swarovski crystals, it’s covered with 24-karat gold plating and cascades four meters down from the atrium ceiling.

Some of the areas you asked to see are featured in today’s video and photo gallery, including a few nearly finished staterooms, the pools on Deck 11, the Deck 3 atrium, Animator’s Palate, the Vibe club for teens on Deck 5, the Pink champagne bar for adults on Deck 4 and the Senses Spa and Salon on Deck 11. Enjoy!

I’ll have more photos to share next week, including a look at Royal Palace and Enchanted Garden, two of the rotational restaurants guests will enjoy on every cruise.

Meanwhile, the Disney Dream arrived in Hamburg, Germany, yesterday after completing sea trials on Europe’s North Sea. She’s undergoing a final dry dock before her delivery ceremony early next month at Bremerhaven, Germany.

Tell us if you like what you see and we’ll keep sharing more sneak peeks with you.

Our head server from the Magic left Saturday with us and is now headed to Germany to help get the Dream dining areas ready. If you are going on the Dream ask for Ivan for your Head Server—-he’s the greatest!

There are, however, a few corners on the pools that look a bit pointy – woudn’t want to run up against those!

32

Kathryn A from FL on November 24th, 2010 at 8:11 am

My sister and I are booked for early March and are very excited. Chandelier looks beautiful. We are disappointed that you do not have single bed options for unmarried, nongay, just friends and sisters who do not like sleeping together. That is a DOWNER!.

33

John from WI on November 24th, 2010 at 8:16 am

Absolutely stunning!!! I can’t wait for our cruise.

Thank you so much for the updates. Keep the information coming!!

34

Paul from AL on November 24th, 2010 at 10:14 am

How about some pictures with the sun shining. lol And I’m sure those stateroom photos are from Deck 7. Seriously, we can’t wait for Feb 27 and meeting all our Deck 7 neighbors. I will spend 4 days walking around speechless with my mouth hanging open (except when I’m eating, of course).

35

Taylor from IL on November 24th, 2010 at 1:36 pm

The Disney fleet blows Carnival and Royal Caribbean out of the water. Their ships may be larger but Disney has retained such an elegant but fun design. I would gladly give up a chance to sail on the largest ship Allure of the Seas just to spend some time on the Disney Magic (one of the smaller large liners).

Disney Dream… we meet in like 85 days!

36

Anthony from NY on November 24th, 2010 at 9:45 pm

We can’t wait for September; we will be on the Member Cruise. She looks like a “DREAM”…. beautiful

37

Crystal from NC on November 25th, 2010 at 11:21 am

FANTABULOUS! Can’t wait for March 3! Would love to see pics of the 1-bedroom concierge suites, including the bathroom. Thanks for keeping us posted!

38

James from FL on November 25th, 2010 at 11:58 am

Kevin from CO on November 25th, 2010 at 11:08 pm

My daughter & I have been looking forward to the 1st sailing of the Dream for years now. Disney never disappoints. This will be the family cruise of lifetime. The “Dream” begins for this family on 01/26/11.

Debi from OK on November 26th, 2010 at 10:11 pm

Matthew from BC on November 28th, 2010 at 3:17 pm

44

Colin on November 29th, 2010 at 3:06 pm

We just returned from a fantabulous Thanksgiving vacation on “The Wonder” If “The Dream” dares to exceed what we have just experienced…Well, then, our poor hearts may not be able to take it. However, it seems more than worth the risk! :-)

Brigida on December 1st, 2010 at 5:30 pm

OH My GOSH!!!! I’am Totally Speechless, This is Breathtaking!!! Cannot Wait to be On It, and Be Treated As Royalty as This is Disney’s Only Way to Treat Their Guest’s.Only Disney can think of All these Magical Way’s to Dress up their Ship’s, and the Service is Unimaginable, Amazing, Just Priceless…My Daughter and I have Sailed on the Disney Cruise Several Times, We Have Sailed 6 Times abd Cannot wait to ail the Dream!!! We Are So Excited..We Are Disney Vacation Club Members and are So Happy We Joined, We Have Taken So Many Vacations and are Planning on going to Aulani Next Year Dec 2011, Can’t Wait…Happy, Happy and Magical…Thank You Walt Disney for all the Magic you have Brought Us.
