Disney Dream Construction Update – It’s (Almost) Showtime

decorative ceiling and the stadium seating structure of the Buena Vista Theatre
It’s hard to believe we are only 160 days away from the maiden voyage of the Disney Dream. All of the spaces on the ship are quickly transforming from cavernous steel hollows to beautiful guest areas.

Construction is moving very quickly on the Buena Vista Theatre which will span two decks and have capacity for 399 guests. As you can see, the decorative ceiling is nearly complete, the stadium seating structure is already in place and furnishings will be installed shortly.

For cinephiles, the Buena Vista Theatre will be home to first-run-movies, including releases in stunning digital 3-D. Take a look at this rendering of the finished venue.

I want to book a trip for 2012 to the Eastern Caribbean, and would like to know if that current ship will remain the same. Also – to the general commenters, are the cruises worth the price?
