Great updates, looks like embarkation was painless Must make a note to ask for the non US line

The Dream really does look like a "Dream" and so far your first day looked magical. Can't wait to read more

Wow the Dream looks amazing! We've never done a cruise, but I'd love to. Sounds like you had a great relaxing first day.

I love all of the goodies you had in your room when you arrived, such a nice touch.

Can't believe there is mini golf on the ship! It looks like so much fun!
Thank you! It really was an amazing ship - I'd seen many pictures and video of it before we went, but actually seeing it myself was incredible
I was really glad to have pre-ordered some drinks and the photo credits for our room - the bottled water was particularly useful for our days on Castaway Cay and in Nassau. And the gifts from my sister were so lovely - we kept the decorations up for the whole cruise!

Thank you for reading Laura! I hope you love the cruise ship as much as we did - we already can't wait to do another cruise in the future!

Thanks Sara! I think you would love the cruise - the Dream was like the ultimate Disney hotel, but out at sea!

It's incredible how a ship with so many people can actually look empty in some places!

What's this navigator you are talking about receiving?
Hi Mel!
I hope I am describing the cruise ok - we really didn't know what to expect, if we'd like a cruise-style vacation, but we both loved it.. there was so much to do, but you didn't have to do anything really!

The navigators are a leaflet that you get in your stateroom each night about activities on the ship the next day.. it highlights a few special things, then has an hour-by-hour grid which shows you things for adults/teens/tweens/families and kids... it was really useful and now make great souvenirs!

Thank you! I'm not sure we would ever have considered going on a cruise if it wasn't a Disney one but now I think we'd enjoy trying other cruise lines too (maybe!) .. it's such a different style of vacation, very relaxing but lots of opportunities to try out new things & visit many places

Thank you! The ship was beautiful - even the corridors and staircases were gorgeously decorated(and Disney music was played quietly too!)
Thank you for the compliment on the dress - I'd saved up money specifically for our honeymoon wardrobes, so we both had plenty of lovely new clothes to wear!

Thanks Nikki - it was a great first day! Reading about your cruise on honeymoon made me think a lot more about going on one.. it was also the reason we did cruise/wdw rather than the other way around, just in case it wasn't our thing - we knew we still had a week at WDW to look forward too lol

I was really glad I made the magnets - if only to recognise our door more easily, the corridors of staterooms are very long! I had read that sometimes the magnets go 'missing' during the cruise but luckily none of ours did.
The gifts from my sister were so sweet - she is so good at thinking up surprises!

Thanks Stefy... I'm not sure if you will need the non-US queue for check-in or if there is a separate one for concierge? It's good to know about though

I think 'Dream' is the perfect name for that ship!

Thank you! The cruise was really fantastic - I think most WDW fans would enjoy one, if you ever get the chance to go

Fantastic update! That is an amazing ship... I can't believe how big it is, and how much there is to do. Love the Skyline bar!

I'm finally here! This is starting to look like a fantastic honeymoon! You're making me REALLY want to go on a cruise now! I like that you were able to be seated by yourselves. I don't know that I'd necessarily want to be socializing with people I don't know during meal times on my honeymoon. Looking forward to more!

I don't think Disney will be in Europe while we're there, we're taking a Celebrity Cruise.

You are doing a great job so far at explaining the cruise. Those navigators sound like just the thing DH and I would spend hours reading and re-reading coming back from our trip to reminisce about it.
