Disney Cruise Line's first new ship in more than a decade arrived Tuesday morning in Port Canaveral, Fla., three weeks ahead of its Jan. 26 maiden cruise, according to Travel Weekly,M&C's sister publication. The 128,000-ton, 1,250-cabin vessel is about 50 percent larger than Disney's other two ships, the 83,000-ton Disney Magic and Disney Wonder. Among its innovative features, the ship has "virtual portholes" that give inside cabins a live video feed to the outside, and a top-deck water coaster. The Dream's maiden voyage will visit Disney Cruise Line's private Bahamian island, Castaway Cay. During its inaugural season, the Dream will sail three-, four- and five-day cruises to Castaway Cay and Nassau, Bahamas.
