The Disney Dream: Aboard the Christening Cruise; Jennifer Hudson, Kyle Massey, Whoopi Goldberg and Me!

Last week I was invited on the christening cruise of the new Disney ship, the Dream—the latest of the amazing line Disney cruise ships.

The kids were super excited! I was all in for the cruise but the christening ceremony, er, extravaganza before we even left the dock was enough hoopla to send me home happy.  I mean, the songs, the characters—and I mean from like every Disney movie ever!, the flags, the pomp, the circumstance, and then….the big finale.

My girl, Jennifer Hudson takes center stage looking all sexy, svelte and not needing Weight Watchers at all, to belt out a dreamy tune. Did you know she started her career singing on a Disney cruise ship? (Check out Kayla’s video of the performance. Sorry about the finger.) 

And the Dream is, well, a dream boat. The cabins we're spacious and lovely. The dining rooms, with their rotating dinners and rotating staff that follow you, was impeccable. I loved The District, a collection of lounges and nightclubs (though I only enjoyed it briefly. Shout out to LS for putting me on to the Nine Dragon cocktail)  –some are family friendly. Kayla busted a tune on karaoke night at the D Lounge.

 I loved the grandiose theatres and the Disney shows, oh the shows! But what I really loved was the AquaDuck—touted as the world's first on-ship water coaster.  As the kids and I (though not altogether.  Read about that situation here) zipped through watery tunnels high above the pool deck, we had an exhilarating ride and an awesome view!

Oh and we also snagged a picture with Disney and Dancing With the Stars star, Kyle Massey. I spotted him first and watching Kayla swoon, act shy and shoosh me repeatedly was hilarious. Five minutes later she asked me to ask him for a picture. (see pic of Kayla and Kyle Massey below!)  Oh these tweens!

I also saw John Stamos and heard Whoopi was on the ship—though I didn’t see her.

The weather in Orlando was sketchy—I curseth you, global warming. But when the cruise pulled into Castaway Cay, Disney’s own private island in the Bahamas, and it was a scorching 80 something degrees, despite reports of rain, I started to believe in magic myself.
