New Disney Dream Unveiled

Posted on: October 30, 2009

Yesterday, Disney Cruise Line unveiled the plans for its newest ship, the Disney Dream, set to debut in 2011.

The following are excerpts from http://www.cruisecritic.com:

Disney Cruise Line Unveils Dream Details at NYC Show-and-Tell

At a festive show-and-tell today at Guastavino’s in New York City, Disney Cruise Line unveiled the first tidbits about its first new ship in over a decade — the 128,000-ton, 4,000-passenger Disney Dream

Disney Dream will feature an area called The District on Deck 4, aft, a playground for grownups with bars and clubs. The 18-and-older neighborhood features several lounges, including Skyline, a bar with faux windows that will display changing cityscapes from Paris to Tokyo. Beyond that, you can look forward to a few major innovations: The industry’s first “watercoaster”! The AquaDuck (yes, as in Donald) isn’t your standard water slide. The coaster is a see-through acrylic tube — the length of 2-1/2 football fields — that winds around the top deck from funnel to funnel, up and down, at one point cantilevering off the port side 150 feet above the ocean!

Inside cabins with virtual portholes. This industry first is so simple — and so fantastic — we have to wonder why it wasn’t thought of sooner. Inside cabins will now have a window to the outside world via virtual portholes. High-definition cameras placed outside the ship feed actual footage of the seascape to the flat-screen “portholes” inside.

Interactive experiences for the kids, Disney-style. Kids will be able to interact with Crush, the animated turtle from “Finding Nemo,” via a cinema-size plasma screen, and experience what it is like to be “toy size” in Andy’s Room, a larger-than-life replica of the “Toy Story” set. There will also be a play area called Monsters Academy, visited regularly by Mike, the lovable green guy from “Monsters Inc.”

Stay tuned for more details as they become available. Contact Celebrations International Travel to learn more about a Disney Cruise vacation today!
