~ disney cruise 2013 - walking around the ship ~

Thursday, January 2, 2014
The ship that we cruised on was the Dream. Disney has a total of 4 ships with Fantasy being their newest ship. The Dream is their third ship. The interiors of the ship is absolutely gorgeous! Of course they keep the exterior of the ship constantly clean as well, whenever we port there are always people cleaning the windows and sides of the ship.

This photo was taken when we docked at Nassau.

You can see Mickey and his crew of broomsticks cleaning the front of the ship!

Interior of the elevators. These were mostly packed with families and strollers so we usually just walked up the 6 flights of stairs to our room lol

The main hallway leading to and from Royal Palace and Animators restaurants, it also lead to the stairs to the aft. We frequented this hallway a lot.

I believe this is a scene from Peter Pan? 

Bright decor! The main atrium was packed when everyone first arrived since lots of people were waiting for their rooms to be ready. This depended on the arrival time which you picked during your booking, our room was ready at 1:30.

The gorgeous glass lighting in the main atrium.

This was one of the shops on-board. Shops are only open when the ship is actually sailing and are closed when ported so sometimes the shops only opened for about 5 hours!

This is the theater where the musicals were held.

The four elevators at each part of the ship. 

There was art everywhere!

The pelican at Cabana's the buffet and other dining option besides the main dining rooms.

We were still ported when we ate but at one time we spotted two dolphins outside the window!....I know it just looks like a grey blob but I swear it was really a dolphin.

This is the theater where they showed various movies. When I was there they showed Brave, Wreck it Ralph, Iron Man 3, Oz the great and powerful as well as Lincoln.

The 3D was amazing ! Much better than the regular glasses we get at our local theaters. However the seat reclined awkwardly for me and I had to lay my head down on the hard chair seat which resulted in a headache for me >< We watched Brave which was really good!

The main atrium. My sister, who worked at the port checking people in for the cruise line one summer, told me that they make each level shorter in order to give an illusion that the atrium is a lot taller than it really is!

Resting and waiting for the movie to start.

Missing this.

  1. Love your pictures! The decor is really cute and I love how they put artwork everywhere! I definitely need to go on a cruise one day. How long was the whole trip again? Got curious when you said sometimes shops are only opened for 5 hours.

  2. Lovely pictures. Happy new year.

  3. I've been on a cruise once and got so seasick. But this Disney cruise ship looks so cool! And I loved my time in Nassau :) I'd really enjoy seeing a Disney musical.

  4. I've not been on a cruise before and I always hear many wonderful things about Disney cruise. You know, there was once I wanted to work as a Disney crew coz you sail out for a phase of a few months and get paid a lot. I'm not sure about now. Your sis used to work there too? Did she tell you that the pay was good?

    Sure, I could tell that was a dolphin! For the dolphin to be so small, you sure are high up! SOunds like lots of good movies being offered. Pity about the awkward reclining seat. I'm glad that you enjoyed yourself overall.

    Happy 2014. I hope the 1st week of 2014 has been treating you well!
