First time Disney cruiser here - leaving May 1th on the Dream.

Are the doors metal that you can use magnets on or do I have to pack sticky sutff?

Anyone been on the Dream yet - can you tell me if there is a Pirate party?
There is no informaiton on the DCL site for the Dream like I D/L in error for the Wonder.

Thank you,
Melanie

Most of the stateroom doors on the Dream are metal (magnets will work). The concierge rooms, I've heard, are not. Please DO NOT bring sticky stuff!

As you might imagine, it is very important to us to keep our facilities looking their best for all our guests.

As part of our commitment to this area of focus, we ask that guests no longer affix anything to their stateroom door utilizing any adhesive or tape.

We have found that these adhesives damage the finish on the stateroom doors and therefore ask that guests limit door decoration to those of the magnetic variety.
Unofficially, what I'm hearing is that DCL is considering the possibility of levying surcharges on people who damage the door finish with adhesives. They're trying to avoid that because the really do appreciate the passion and creativity that people are putting into this, but the issue with the finishes coming off the doors is getting to be a real issue. I know some have already received this notice on-board the ship, but I wanted to make sure it's out there for everyone.

Thanks,
Pete
Yes, there are actually two pirate parties. One earlier aimed more for the younger kids and then Club Pirate before the fireworks aimed at the older set.

Have a blast on your trip!

We were on the Dream 20 - 24. Yes there is a pirate party same night as the dress up night (dress up night is not listed anywhere we found out 30 min prior and ran to change would not have mattered what a range of clothing sweats to ball gowns). It is the night you are in Nassau. Fireworks are great. Stay to the side of the boat not front or back. There is a show on stage with Jack Sparrow. So you want to be where you can see both. There is no good spot to see both without obstructions. Pack lightly. Pack then take out half of your stuff. Cruise was ok. DD and DM did not like the food they are more standard faire eaters. Pool way too crowded. We never got in it was like sardines. Do not book shore trips for CC I think there is enough to do without paying for it. We did extreme package but only used sting ray and tubes. Water very chilly for snorkling. Overall we enjoyed the trip. We just may not be a cruising family. We loved the virtual window. Finished at WDW and we think we like that better even if we have been 10 times

I should have specified Sucky cups not sticky, that is what we use at the resorts when the doors are not metal or on the windows.

They are asking for magnet variety only.

If anyone out there has tips for Puerto Vallarta and/or Cabo, let us know! We'd like stamps too!

Thanks!

Also, for the pillowcases/place mats/plates etc. .... does one person sign all the signatures or is each character siging? The reason I ask, is if you are going to put in, say a box of candy .... who gets it? The person at GS or the first person to sign ...?
My guess is that one person is signing. Afterall, Mickey's signature is the same in any park you are in regardless of who is in the suit. I think they must be trademarked. I add candy anyway. It's a nice gesture for a free item.

Pillowcases??

So we leave on the Dream April 10th...has anyone RECENTLY went and had pillowcases signed and on the Dream??? I want to drop off 2 pillowcases and fabric markers, one for each of my girls but really don't want to look silly in case they have NO clue what I am talking about! I will definitely include some sort of thank you treat! And another question, do they always do it??? Who sits around and signs all these things??

Thanks all!!!

AFAIK, CM's who are friends of characters do actually have to learn penmanship for the characters.

If you practice enough, you can train your muscles to do anything. Autographs are the same- CMs just have to train their muscles to remember how to sign it.

Dream pillowcases

We were on the Dream Feb 10 and took pillowcases. We dropped them off at the guest services desk. They asked if it was for boys or girls. We told them boys but "the more the merrier" as far as signatures go. I had some markers but they were NOT needed, they have their own. I used a gallon ziploc bag (with our name and room number on it written with a sharpie) and placed 2 pillowcases in one bag. They were returned to our room the final night. So easy! And so cute!

I bought fabric markers to use instead of Sharpies. I hope they use them. I've heard the Sharpies can run or fade when washed.

Is there a limit to how many items they will autograph? I was thinking of taking two pillow cases and two photo mats. It is only DH and I traveling.
