I wanted to go snorkeling in the lagoon area, but I soon noticed that everyone was wearing vests. I thought about renting one, but the water was awfully murky. My guess is that there was a lot sunscreen in that water, so I decided to just skip it. So I went around and took some extra pictures of the area.
Initially Sarah wanted to go on the water slides, but she later said that she did not feel like getting wet again. Personally I had very little interest in getting in line for the slides.
Here is a short video of the watersides.
We then got on another tram to head back to the ship. I could not imagine, doing that walk on a day as hot as that one. Those trams are a real blessing.
And here we are heading back inside the ship.
We decided to head upstairs and try to ride the the AquaDuck if the lines were not that bad. When you get to deck 11 in the midship elevators there is a little store that I never saw open. My guess is that they open it on sea days? That may sound a little ironic since on the Dream there is only one sea day every week. However they had some very neat items there, mostly pool/beach stuff.
The AquaDuck line was non-existent so we rode a few times.
I decided to leave to do the video tour of the Dream, but once I got to the room and changed the lens I realized how hot it was and I decided to do it later in the day when it was a little more comfortable.
On the way back I got some crab claws and headed to the pool to meet with my mom and Sarah. I believe I also picked up some pizza as well.
I think that pizza was the worst food I ate on the ship, and right now I die for a slice of that pizza
While we were there the skies opened up and it started raining really hard. I guess we made a good decision on going to the beach early on the morning. I felt really bad for the people down at the beach.
Here is a short Video.
Fortunately for the people in Castaway Cay the rain did not last long and the sun was shinning again.
We just relaxed by pool with a few drinks and some ice cream.
Mom asked for some ice cream, but I bit the end of it .
I had a strawberry one.
And this is what happens when you stay in the water for so long
Since it had cool down a little, I went to the room to change to the Fish eye lens to do the ship tour. I found this little guy waiting for us.
Video Tour of the Disney Dream
Ok folks here is the video tour. You owe to yourself to watch it. I take about an hour out of my cruise just to do this set of videos, and I am very proud of them.
Not only that, but these videos help you understand the layout of the ship as well as get any information that I forgot to type in here.
Please watch then =)
Just click on the pictures.

That is it for now folks, I hope you enjoy the videos.
I really enjoyed your TR. We were on the Fantasy last summer for 7 nights, so it was quite familiar to me. I was curious what a three night be like -- seems so so short!
I will check out your other TRs on other cruise lines, I'm in withdrawal mode from our Mediterranean cruise on the Magic last month.
I guess I took some fisheye pictures during the video tour and here they are. As much as some people hate that lens, I have to say that is my favorite creative lens. I think I made the right decision at selling the ultra-wide lens. But I am very happy that I never considered selling the fisheye lens.
Crazy how straight the tube came out,
Would you believe me if I said that I just noticed the rainbow right now? I swear to you, how crazy is that?
We all went back to the room and relaxed for a little while. Sarah wanted to see the last show, so she got ready to head to to Theater. When she came out she started Browsing through the TV and noticed that they stream the show live. So she decided to see it in the TV instead. I watched parts of it, but honestly is the same as any other show, singing, dancing, stages, etc. You know by now that I really could care less about shows, maybe on a longer cruise. But honestly I think I rather be watching something like "Planes" or "Monsters University". It is really odd, I am not entirely sure why I dislike shows so much. Possibly all the singing, I can't do musical movies either. I do however enjoy live comedy shows, specially the rated R ones .
Anyway I guess at some point either before or after Sarah watched the Show. I got a video of the TV system aboard the Disney Dream, their movie selection is incredible!
Here it is,
I think in the mean time my mom was getting ready. As usual I grabbed my computer and played some music outside, while I worked on my pictures. I also took a few more pictures.
Fishing boat in the distance.
I was in the process of getting long sequence video. I did get it but it was just boring so I decided not to post it.
Then I got ready and we headed to Animators Palate. A funny story happened here. My mother and Sarah were walking ahead of me, and I was just slightly behind them. In between us there were two little girls, the girls were walking towards their father who was ahead of them. I guess I was walking with my drink when one of the girls suddenly stopped out of nowhere. I could not stop in time and I bumped into her just slightly. As I bumped into her, a little of my drink spilled on her head, I almost died. I don't think she noticed, since she just kept walking and then jumping. It was then that I figured they were playing some kind of game.
So anyway we all started walking again, and a little boy comes running out of his room. He was nervous and disoriented, I guesshe must of thought that I was his father because he grabbed my leg and held on it. I was unsure of what was going on
I said hi to him, and he just looked at me. Then I noticed the father of the girls just laughing and he said something like " He found a new daddy". He was his father as well, everything happened so fast that I trying to figure out what was going on. Eventually he let go and made a dash towards his father. It was a funny little event, my mom and Sarah had a quick laugh on it.
Anyway I guess eventually we made it to Animators Palate. I have to admit this is by far my favorite restaurant. It just follows the disney concept in every way possible. It is just a very a fun restaurant.
Those are all screens and they change as the dinner goes on
Just look at those chairs and the carpet.
