Disney Cruise Line announces details of new Disney Dream

Published: October 29, 2009 at 2:54 PM

The Disney Cruise Line (which rolls up under the parks in Disney's corporate structure) revealed details about its third cruise ship, the Disney Dream, in a live webcast today.

The notables? A "virtual porthole," i.e. a circular TV screen for inside cabins that will broadcast a video feed from outside the ship. But since it's Disney, animated characters will crawl by now and then, such as the sea creatures from "Finding Nemo."

Okay, not enough for you? How about a clear-tube "water coaster" slide over, around and off the side of the ship's top deck?

The Disney Dream will sail on Bahamian cruises from Florida, starting in 2011.

It looks like Disney has seen what works and made new additions. If there are anybody thinking about going on the Magic or the Wonder out there, please do! Its really a great time for any age. The ship is fun and very stylish and stunning!
