    Hi Marisol - I read last week that you've been on the Disney Dream. Do you recommend it for grandparents with or without their grandkids? Just wondering if it is more geared for adults? I appreciate your thoughts. Thanks!

    Hi Rachel!

    Yes, I was on the Disney Dream exactly one week ago!  I can promise you that it is a stunningly beautiful ship and I thoroughly enjoyed myself.  If you are traveling with your grandchildren, you'll all have a wonderful time.  There is so much to do as a family that you'll have to be picky when choosing your activities.  There won't be time to do it all!  I guarantee that you'll be making magical memories that will last a lifetime.

    My companions on my last sailing were my sister and our best girlfriend.  No kids, no husbands!!!  Can you say "GLORIOUS"?  The beauty of sailing on a Disney ship is that there is something and somewhere for every age group.  Personally, I loved Quiet Cove.  It's the adults only pool section on the ship.  You will not see or hear a child the entire time you're there.  Enjoy the pool, jacuzzi and swim up bar!  If you like to relax and have a cup of coffee, make sure to visit their adults only coffee bar with complimentary pastries. 

    Please, please, please, don't forget to book a reservation at Palo.  It's my favorite!  There is a small, additional charge for this restaurant, but worth every penny.  Again, no kids...

    I also recommend you visit Serenity Bay.  It's the adults only beach on Disney's private island, Castaway Cay.  It's gorgeous and very relaxing.  I can also recommend the spa.  I spent two entire afternoons there.  I enjoyed the jacuzzis overlooking the ocean, their heated lounge chairs, their saunas and Rainforest showers.  That is all included in the $16.00 Rainforest day pass.

    If you get the opportunity, book it without a minute's hesitation.  You'll have the time of your life with or without the grandkids.  I hope this helps.  Let me know if you have any other questions.  Thanks for visiting the Moms Panel!

Magic Kingdom still takes my breath away, but my favorite place to be is on a Disney ship looking at the horizon and breathing in that crisp, clean ocean air!  I love planning Disney vacations for others and making sure it's more than they dreamed. Learn More About Marisol
