Welcome Home Disney Dream

Fireworks filled the pre-dawn sky over Port Canaveral January 4th as the latest Disney Cruise Line ship, Disney Dream, pulled into its new home in Florida.   The Disney Dream completed its Transatlantic crossing on schedule.  Special thanks to DIS Unplugged for capturing this event in pictures and video (click the link for more images).

When You Wish Upon a Star ....

Disney Dream's naming ceremony will be held January 19th in Port Canaveral with its maiden voyage occurring on January 26th.  As customary for new ships, there will be a series of short cruises for cast members, travel agents, and media between now and the maiden voyage.

The most innovative new features on the Disney Dream are the AquaDuck, the first water coaster at sea, and the virtual portholes for inside cabins which provide a live view via some Disney magic.

The Disney Dream is scheduled to sail three-, four- and five-night cruises to the Bahamas, from Port Canaveral.  Sister ship Disney Fantasy is currently in production at the MEYER WERFT shipyard and is scheduled to set sail on its maiden voyage on April 7, 2012.  It will sail seven-night alternating eastern and western Caribbean itineraries, also from Port Canaveral.
