Disney Dream, will sail into service in January 2011 as the first new Disney cruise ship in over a decade. The "float out," moving the ship from its land-based construction site to a water-filled berth for the first time, is coming in three weeks. Construction will continue there until the ship is ready for sea trials and then service soon after.
Nearly all staterooms on Disney Dream are designed especially for families; including spacious suites with private verandas, oceanview staterooms with oversized portholes and inside staterooms with "virtual portholes" - video screens with a live feed from the bridge of the ship where Disney characters may show up "unannounced" at any time.
