Disney Dream to set sail with cool tech, on-board water coaster.

Posted on

When the Disney Dream sets sail in 2011, you may want to plan to stay on board for most of your cruise.  The new ship, already majestic in size, will also be huge for on-board entertainment.

Take, for example, the video above.  AquaDuck is a water coaster built right into the ship.  The coaster is quite large in itself: 765 feet in length with a 335 foot stretch of river rapids and water jets that push guests upwards and forwards at over 20 feet per second!

Teens and tweens will have plenty of technological entertainment as well.  The Oceaneer Club and Oceaneer Lab kids play in Andy’s room from Toy Story, have fun on the Laugh Floor from Monsters, Inc., and even talk with Crush from Finding Nemo and Stitch from Lilo & Stitch (very much like Turtle Talk with Crush at the parks).  Teens will have Vibe, a lounge that provides wireless internet access, video editing, gaming, and more.

There’s also some neat technical advancements for staterooms.  One that may help alleviate some claustrophobia in the inside staterooms is the Virtual Porthole.  This is actually a screen that plays video from high definition cameras outside the ship, giving you a live view of the open ocean.  Some of your favorite characters may stroll by your window as well, so keep a weather eye out that porthole!

The Disney Dream sounds like a floating technology oasis.  I’ll keep following the info coming out on the Dream, so stay tuned!
