Disney Dream Class Staterooms
Disney Dream Class Staterooms
On our cruises aboard the Disney Dream and Fantasy, we were fortunate enough to stay in four different staterooms and personally tour every other type of stateroom! Here’s what we thought:
Outdoor hot tub in a Royal Suite
The biggest stateroom changes are on the “suite” decks (11 and 12). The two Royal Suites (Walter E. Disney and Roy E. Disney suites) have just one bedroom, but gain hot tubs on the verandahs and the location and layout of those suites is quite different. There are no two-bedroom suites (Category S on the Magic and Wonder)—if you need this, you’ll need to add a connecting Family stateroom. A concierge lounge (now found on all ships) and private sun deck were also new on these ships. Even sweeter, the suites are no longer beneath the pool deck, so they ought to be even quieter.
A virtual porthole on the Dream
The most heralded change has been the addition of “virtual portholes” to inside staterooms, with real-time, high definition video views outdoors that correspond to the stateroom’s location on the ship (port/starboard/fore/aft). Friends from Disney animated films also pop onscreen from time to time. While we hope the Magic and Wonder someday gain this feature, it has yet to happen.
A Dream stateroom facing the bow (#8504)
Nearly all Family staterooms on the Dream Class have a large round tub, and its shape is echoed by a curved wall in the living area. The Dream Class also introduced a new stateroom category, Deluxe Family Outside Stateroom (Category 8), which offers the same interior space and layout as the familiar Deluxe Family Staterooms with Verandah, but at a more affordable price (In 2011, all Category 8 staterooms on the Magic Class were re-assigned to Category 9). The Dream Class doesn’t offer a Navigator’s Verandah comparable to those on the older ships—Category 7 indicates a regular verandah with a partially obstructed view. Some staterooms on decks 6–8 have a bow view, and more staterooms face astern.
