Disney Dream Sets Sail

CB’s Nancy Solomon and Kristi Marcelle are lucky enough to be on the Disney Dream inaugural cruise this week. Talk about media buzz! There’s been a stream of constant chatter. I even saw a tweet yesterday calling the cruise, “The event of the decade.”

We’ll publish official reports from them when they return, but in the meantime, Nancy has sent fun photos for a peek at all the action.

It makes your heart melt to see your kids in a state of utter joy. Joe’s comment on the Disney Dream? “This is the best vacation of my entire life!” A big thanks to Disney for including us in this tremendous event.

Tips for an optimal Disney Cruise


  1. I feel like everyone I follow on Twitter is there right now! Wish I were, too. I’m such a big kid and Disney nerd at heart…in fact, I went down to LA on Sunday just to spend two days at Disneyland!

  2. oh I am so very envious! I love everything Disney! Being on the opposite coast my trips are visits to Disneyland. I’m hoping some day I’ll get to take this cruise it looks like a blast!

  3. Hi Nancy – We met enroute to the Polynesian Resort. I am thinking about you today as I read your blog. I am sitting inside my Hanover home thinking about the cruise we took just a short time ago. We have another snow day today and currently (south of Boston) it is raining heavily right now. The kids are happy though! It was so great to get away during the snowy month of January 2011 – I’ll never forget the lucky opportunity Good Morning America gave us. I inquired and found out there were close to 200,000 entries….so I am feeling quite lucky this year!
