Hi there - looks like we will be close by your family. I have a DD that is turning 7 on the day we sail and a DS that is 9. You might check into an autograph pillow. It is incredible and the perfect keepsake! I made one for each our last cruise with iron transfers and put on a travel pillow case.

Have fun!

I'm a first time poster AND a first time cruiser! My husband, mom, and dad usually do a WDW trip every year. This year we decided to try out the Disney Dream! We can't wait! Any advice, tips, or general knowledge you may have to share would be appreciated!

Congrats and welcome aboard. We're first time cruisers also. I've been hunting around for tips/advice as well. Most of mine has been centered around kids though as I am traveling with a 4 and 6 yr old. Sounds like you are traveling without kids.

Thanks! Yes, we're an 'adults only' group, but we love all things Disney!

Are there any runners out there who continued to train while on the Dream? I joined a Team in Training group this winter, and I'm training for my first marathon which will be in May! I'd like to at least maintain my training schedule while I'm on vacation (I know my eating and drinking plan will be out the window!). I've heard there is a "track" around the ship - does anyone know how long it is?

Hello,


The track goes around (somewhat clumsily) the ship. I have no idea how long it is - but my DH was not impressed. It is not all outside - the ends go through pedestrian passageways and he dodged strollers etc. Still better than a treadmill. Hope your long run days don't fall on the cruise. J

Welcome to our group! The track is ok, but there is a 5k on Castaway Cay. I think my sister and her DH might be trying it.
