Back in America: Went on Disney Cruise #3 on Disney Dream
Posted by: Nebuchadnezzar on October 2nd, 2014 @ 7:31PM
We came into some money that I couldn't get my hands on to use for bills so yet again I was forced to go on a cruise but she really helped pay for most of it.
We went on our 3rd Disney Cruise on the Disney Dream. It was just a 4 day cruise because it was like $2000 more for 3 more days. We went to Nassau for the 3rd time for me, and Castaway Cay for the 3rd time. I'm starting to have that island memorized.
Thursday, last week - Drove to San Diego. Flew from San Diego to Orlando in 4 1/2 hours. Then checked into Universal Cabana Resort for 3 days. The food and everything was massively overpriced but the place was pretty nice. They had a Lazy River that we went around for hours and hours. The weather was super crappy for 2 days, raining really hard. We went to Downtown Disney the first night. Second day we went to Universal Shitty Walk and then Downtown Disney again with me and the boy to go to Disney Quest a second time. We found some awesome games there. Some skiing game that you could stand and play. Some snow mobile game. That place is totally recommended, even for the entire day. Then we drove to Port Canaveral and got on our boat.
The Disney Dream is their 2nd best boat. Fantasy is the best. Last year we were on their WORST boat, the Wonder. Don't ever go on that one, it's a piece of shit.
This time we had the worst room of all 3 trips, an inner room. It had 1 less bathroom and was super cramped for 4 of us. But we made due, it's just not as good as the last 2 trips. Also the location was at the front of the boat. You had to get off the elevator and walk for MILES to get to it. So it was also the worst location of 3 times. They also treated us like complete shit because we had the inner room. The first two times, we had a room with either a veranda or a porthole. This time. We had the worst spot at the front of the boat/end of a hall and an inner one on top of that. We almost NEVEr saw the stateroom host and he didn't even ever talk to us or learn our names. So i tipped him nothing more than regular. Other two times we really got to know and like our stateroom hosts and they were a huge part of our cruise. So I was joking we're the lower deck people like Titanic or Waterworld.
The bed was the best and this time the TV was vastly improved with free on demand movies. They had the entire collection of disney and pixar films. Otherwise their free movie selection blew. I ended up watching LIFE OF CRIME which was OK I suppose. But on the very last night when we had no time, they unlocked a bunch of new movies including expendables 3 which I'd never seen. It sucks there was no notification that the line was switching. We tried to watch 2 but ran out of time at 3am haha.
Getting off the boat sucks because we have show at 6pm, dinner at 8pm and the dinner drags on for 2+ hours. So we had 30 mins to pack which for my chick is like walking to the moon. She turned in her bags at 40 mins past the last deadline haha.
While getting on the ship we lost a bag with all my cokes I had just bought and who knows what else. Disney lost it. Then while getting off, we left the other bag with all the snacks and who knows what else. We called them right away but they never responded. Then my favorite disney pin, Aquaduck Fantasy, I lost. Some ahole took it off the floor and never turned it in. Fucks man. This is why God destroyed the world with a flood. Cuz almost every person is garbage from Satan.
The cruise was super fun otherwise besides the room. I ONLY recommend Disney for cruiselines and The Fantasy or the Dream. The Magic has been redone so it could be good, who knows. Or you can't polish a turd cuz it's their oldest ship. 2 more cruises and we go from SILVER member and level up to GOLD member. For some reason I treat that like a RPG and I want to level up my character to Gold. There were tons of Gold members online.
I'd recommend 5 or 7 day cruise. NEVER a 3 day cruise, and 4 was questionable. Save up for the longer times. I think a 6 day cruise or a 5 day might be perfect. The last 7th day kinda drags on.

|Thats awesome that you got to go on another cruise. We went on the Disney Dream last year for my daugher's birthday - she turned one. We were really worried about taking her on that type of trip at such a young age, but shockingly it was an incredible trip and probably a lot easier to do at that age as opposed to 18 months-2 years.|
We were on the highest deck - the 10th - thinking that it would offer the best views. Unfortionately, it was also the loudest deck, as we could hear everything from the swimming pool just above us - I would definetely recommend going for decks 7-9 if possible.
It is unfortionate to hear that Wonder is their worst ship - for whatever reason, Disney has decided to only use the smaller Wonder and Magic ships for Alaska and European cruises. I hope they eventually build a fifth and sixth ship to perhaps replace these smaller ones.
Have you ever done the Mixology courses?

|We were on deck 9 this time. It wasn't loud or anything.|
