Seriously.

They gave the teens a 100% private get away while the parents who pay for the trip get an adults only section that seems to have kids walking through it and hanging out in it.

I think it should have been reversed and let the adults have the 100% private pool section.
amen!

You have shared so many wonderful thoughts, pictures and now the crown jewel....the video. GREAT JOB!!!!
Glad there were no problems playing it, I was a little worried about that because of the length

Thanks for the kind words!!! I feel that I wasn't even supposed to be on the Dream, ever, so I was so appreciative when I got to see her that I just knew I had to pay it forward and share the elegance and beauty that I got to see, the way I know how

have they started building the fantasy yet?

i think we should find out who to contact and tell them of the serious error in judgement they have by putting the teens 100% private instead of the parents.

after all we're the ones flipping the thousands of bucks to go on the trip - i'd like to sit out by a pool at some point without hearing hords of kids yelling and running around.

i'm not a sun freak but its nice to know other then a lout club there is somewhere the adults can go to relax (for free - not the spa)

wonder if they got hundreds of emails if they would rethink the design of the fantasy??

Thanks for taking the time out to post all of these! Very helpful indeed! We are on the Dream for Labor Day weekend so we are more excited than ever.

Quick question for you - does the standard inside stateroom have that pull out bed as a default or is that only for rooms with 4 people in them? TIA.

They just laid the keel of the Fantasy so I highly doubt there will be any structural changes at this point no matter how many emails they get

I will say that I never saw any kids running and screaming around the adult pool but there are kids walking through that area for sure!

The 11 Inside Standard rooms sleep 3 OR 4, so some rooms will have that pull down bed in the ceiling, others wont.

My neice just got off the Dream 3 weeks ago and said the teen club gets run over by the tweens. And the said no one seem to mind....or stop them. Since you don't have to sign in or out who is too know right.

She said they have a small sign that says the age but eveyone walks though it anyway...That that was funny because that is what the adults complain about for the adult pool that says there is a sign for the area.

that's interesting

we didn't hang out in the adult pool that much when we cruised in 09 but we did walk through it enough and did see some but not a lot of kids in and around the area (not in the pool) but i've read some reports that say there seems to be more kids in and around the adult area then on the wonder or magic.

might be that it's new, who knows.

Who needs to watch the Oscars when I've got your trip report to read!

Seriously - it's freakin' amazing! For those of us who have never done a Disney cruise (and likely won't due to dh's motion sickness that no medication/technique can help ), it was really fun living vicariously through your report. You are THE photographer of photographers! I haven't even had the chance to watch the video yet, but I have a feeling I won't be disappointed.... This cruise likely just wet your appetite for when you go back with your family. How many days???????

Thanks a million for the detailed report. You're amazing!

Hi Cass,

May I please borrow one of your photos to post in another thread? It's a random photo of the carpet if that's ok with you.

Thanks!
Kat
