  1. Disney Dream a fabulous addition to the Disney vacation portfolio

    I've started this blog post a number of times, trying to come up with the best way to sum up my experiences aboard the Disney Dream, the newest addition to the Disney Cruise Line fleet. I kept restarting because I couldn't come up with enough words to describe it. "Wonderful," "magnificent," "spectacular," "wow," and more just don't seem to sum it up.

    I suppose that my experience may be colored by the fact that I have not been on a cruise ship in 15 years, and so the bar may have ...
