DISNEY DREAM made her maiden call at Port Canaveral, Florida on January 3. This third unit and largest in the Disney Cruise Line fleet arrived following a two-week journey from Meyer Werft shipyard in Germany to her new home port.
DISNEY DREAM will make her official maiden voyage January 26, following sea trials with members of the travel industry and Disney employees.
The new US$900-million vessel was toured by media members through selected areas, but the ship was not yet “open” for complete inspection. A SEA TREKS blog from roving reporter Peter Knego will be forthcoming.
