Disney Cruise Line announced yesterday on it's amazing webcast that they will be launching a third ship, the Disney Dream with it's first sailing in January 2011. This majestic ship is 40% larger than the Wonder or Magic. The webcast gave us the first look at what this spectacular ship will hold for it's guests.
The Dream will have the very first water coaster at sea, the AquaDuck. A cross between a roller coaster and water slide, the AquaDuck looks like it will not disappoint. Staterooms will be elegant with a yacht club theme. The inside staterooms will have virtual portholes so even if you don't have a room with a view of the ocean you can still see the beautiful ocean waves crashing. The ship will host several youth clubs - one for babysitting, children, tweens, teens and families.
DCL asked for questions from it's twitter followers at http://twitter.com/dclnews. I decided to submit a question about the dining, which ended up being read and answered on this informative webcast. Disney will continue it's tradition of rotational dining. The dining rooms include: Animator's Palette, pacific rim cuisine with American flare in an animation themed dining room. Palo, Northern Italian cuisine served in an adults only dining room designed with elegance and romance in mind. Royal Palace, French-inspired cuisine in a dining room inspired by the classic Disney Princess movies. Last but certainly not least is Enchanted Garden, with fresh market inspired dishes this restaurant is designed with the gardens of Versailles in mind with shades of green and blue.
