Disclosure: I was invited on a media trip aboard the Disney Cruise Line Disney Dream. All opinions are my own.
This summer was really one for the books. Not only did it mark the beginning of something completely new for our family (this is my first summer in years working from home), but it also surprised us with a lot of new and fun adventures. Of course, for me and Edgar the highlight of the summer was our Bahamian adventure aboard the Disney Dream Cruise Line.
As you all know, it was our first time ever on a cruise ship. Not to mention, it was also the first time we got to enjoy the Disney experience.
We really had such a good time on this trip, and the more I think about it the more I realize what a great decision it was to make this a father-son vacation. It really has afforded us some wonderful memories that I think will be with us for quite some time. Just the other day we were remembering some of the things that happened on the ship that were pretty funny and heartwarming at the same time. You know the type. When you’re doing something for the very first time and inevitably you end up doing things that might end up being a little embarrassing or just plain funny.
Let’s just say we each had a couple of those moments on board.
The other thing we both agree on is that taking another Disney Cruise is a must. Only next time we want to invite more family to come with us! We noticed over the three days we were at sea that many families were on board the Disney Dream in full force. By that I mean that several generations were on board the Disney Dream together. Grandparents were dining with their children and grandchildren each night, in many cases sharing conjoined staterooms that made it possible to enjoy every moment together. And when we had the chance to disembark these families all seemed to be having just as great of a time as we were.
It made me want to do a repeat of the entire trip with my parents, my siblings, my in-laws, and all the kids of course. How fun would that be? Can you imagine our entire army of a familia on one cruise ship? I can guarantee you it would be a blast.
Because the Disney Dream is so massive and has so many entertainment options for every age group, I can just see it being a huge hit with the entire family. I guess, that’s one of the best things we discovered on board. Just how much there is to do on a Disney Cruise Line. We also learned a lot more about the other destinations Disney Cruise Lines offer.
They have cruises departing from Galveston, Texas on a regular basis!
We have to take one of those soon. In the meantime, here’s a little more about what the Disney Dream offers families of every size:
