Hello from aboard the Disney Dream somewhere in the Atlantic Ocean…
The ship’s making steady progress on her way to Florida’s Port Canaveral and the mood among the cast and crew on board is jubilant. We can’t wait to bring her home and finally share her with the many Disney Cruise Line fans who’ve followed the Disney Dream over nearly two years of construction and preparation.
With New Year’s Eve fast approaching, we have so much to toast and celebrate. The ship will arrive next week and on January 26th she’ll depart on her maiden voyage to the Bahamas. What better place to welcome the new year than Pink, the ship’s chic, champagne-inspired lounge?
Here’s what will greet guests entering the nighttime entertainment zone exclusively for adults at the aft end of Deck 4. On the right is the entrance to Pink, one of five interconnected lounges within The District.
Inside, the cozy cocktail bar is designed in the French art nouveau style with much of its inspiration drawn from the characteristics and culture of champagne. Back-lit glass “bubbles” dot the walls, with playful pink elephants from Disney’s animated classic “Dumbo” appearing within. Behind the bar, glass droplets in pink and gold (not shown in these pictures) will suggest bottles bursting with bubbly.
“This space is all about romance,” Imagineer Michael Davie said in a recent blog video and it’s easy to see why. Accented with luxurious velvet, marble and wood finishes, it’ll be the perfect spot for an after-dinner cocktail or a champagne toast.
Here’s a peek at Pink as the club looked a few weeks ago, with several pieces of furniture and décor yet to be installed.
I’m not entirely sure what time zone I’m in, so I’ll wish you an early Happy New Year from all of us aboard the Disney Dream. Here’s to a prosperous 2011 at sea and on land.
