The Disney Cruise Line offers a glimpse into the top secret labs of Walt Disney Imagineering for a sneak peek of the magic being created for guests on the Disney Dream cruise ship which enters service in January 2011.
The Disney Dream will be the third ship in the Disney Cruise Line fleet. Boasting 14 towering decks, a ship length of 1,115 feet and a maximum width of 125 feet, the 128,000-ton vessel will includ 1,250 staterooms and has the capacity to comfortably accommodate 4,000 passengers along with the over 1,458 Crew Members who tend to the needs of every cruise guest each and every day.
Building on the classic style of the previous two ships, the Disney Magic and the Disney Wonder, the Disney Dream is a valiant vessel distinguished for its classic early 20th-century design which harkens back to the golden age of cruising state of the art technology.
As can be expected from Disney, the cruise liner was specially designed with families in mind, combining sleek style and convenient facilities with splashes of magic and cruise-industry firsts—like the splashtacular AquaDuck, the very first water coaster at sea.
Disney Cruise Line began construction on the Disney Dream in March 2009 with a steel-cutting ceremony at the world-renowned Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany. Constructed as a thematic extension of the Disney Cruise Line fleet, the Disney Dream was designed to reflect the glamour of the golden age of cruising during the 1930's. Scheduled for completion in early 2011, the new ocean liner will feature the same attention to detail Disney is known for, while introducing new and immersive, one-of-a-kind venues and experiences for everyone in the family—be they young or simply young-at-heart.
