    Hi. I have recently booked a cruise on the disney dream for March 2012. The pools look very small. And the disney dream hold more people so are there problems with crowded pools? And when is the best time to go?


    The best time to swim to avoid crowds is in the morning and while the ship is in port. The least crowded day at the pools is when the Disney Dream (or any of the Disney ships) is docked in Castaway Cay.

    I would advise using the pools in the morning during your day in Nassau. Then head out on an excursion after enjoying the pool.

    Crowd levels will also depend on the week that you are sailing. Spring Break weeks will have the ship sailing with many more passengers.

    The best part about a Disney cruise vacation is the flexibility to create the type of vacation that your family most dreams about. If time by the pool is at the top of your list, head there first before or in lieu of disembarking the ship while in ports.

    Have a magical voyage!
