Disney Dream Best & Worst Staterooms: Summary

Cabins to be wary of on the Disney Dream are on Decks 2, 5, and 10.

Deck-by-Deck Breakdown of the Best and Worst Cabins on the Disney Dream

Deck 2

***CruiseAdvice.org Warning ***
Some cabins on this deck with potential problems.

Cabins on the Disney Dream's Deck 2 do have public areas above, but none of these venues are going to present an appreciable noise concern during the day, and certainly not late at night. Some cabins, however, are located above Tender Lobbies. Noise could be a concern in these staterooms as a result.

  • On Deck 2 of the Disney Dream, Deluxe Ocean View Staterooms 2000- 2058 port side and 2500- 2558 starboard, each 204 sq. ft., have wonderful ocean views from a classic porthole windows.
  • Forward on Deck 2 of the Disney Dream, Ocean View Staterooms 2000- 2006 port side and 2500- 2506 starboard and Interior Staterooms 2007 and 2507 are over Tender Lobbies. Noise when these Tender Lobbies are busy could be an issue in any of these staterooms.
  • Inside cabins (2007-2045 and 2507- 2551) on Deck 2 of the Disney Dream are all Standard Inside Staterooms. Each of these is quite cozy with 169 sq. ft. of living space.
  • Interior Staterooms 2035 and 2535 are more spacious than average and are wheelchair accessible. These staterooms are right next to elevators, and while this could present a noise issue it might be quite handy for travelers using walkers or wheelchairs.
  • Inside cabins 2033 and 2533 are also larger and wheelchair accessible. These two staterooms are nearby the elevators, but are actually closer to the stairwells on Deck 2 of the Disney Dream. Noise may be an issue from traffic on the stairs, but having the elevators nearby could be a plus for travelers using wheelchairs or walkers.
  • Ocean View Staterooms 2030- 2040 port side and 2530- 2540 starboard and Interior Staterooms 2033, 2533, 2035, and 2535 are over Tender Lobbies. Noise when the Tender Lobbies are busy could be of concern in any of these cabins.
  • Among the least preferred staterooms on Deck 2 of the Disney Dream are inside cabins 2045 and 2545. Both are next to public bathrooms and could have related noise concerns.

Deck 5

***CruiseAdvice.org Warning ***
Many cabins on this deck with potential problems.

Deck 5 is right above public areas on the Disney Dream that include the Walt Disney Theater as well as bars. Noise could be a problems in several cabins on this deck!

  • Forward on Deck 5 of the Disney Dream, inside cabins 5005, 5003, 5001, 5501, and 5503 are right behind a very large center for teens. Noise may not be a concern into the wee hours, but there could be some issues into the evening hours. Light sleepers may prefer to find a cabin elsewhere on the ship, bring earplugs, or invest in a wave machine (a sound device available at a specialty retailer like Brookstone -- produces pleasant sounds that can wipe out the unpleasant sounds). 
  • Exterior cabins 5024- 5044 port side and 5524- 5544 starboard are over the theater's verandah seating. Noise could be a concern during rehearsals and performances in any of these staterooms.
  • Aft, exterior cabins 5150- 5184 port side and 5668- 5684 starboard are over bars and public areas that could be a late night noise issues. As mentioned, light sleepers may want to look at cabins on other decks of the Disney Dream, bring along earplugs, or invest in a wave machine.
  • Forward in a relatively quiet area on Deck 5 of the Disney Dream, there are eight Deluxe Family Ocean View Staterooms (5016- 5022 port side and 5516- 5522 starboard). Each has 241 sq. ft., and is designed to accommodate three to five people. The family cabins are very popular given their attractive sleeping arrangements. They sell out very quickly, so it is best to book early to get a family cabin.
  • There are eight interior cabins in the forward area of Deck 5 of the Disney Dream that are likely not going to have much in the way noise issues. These are cabins 5009- 5015 and 5509- 5515. Of these, cabins 5015 and 5515 are Deluxe Inside Staterooms which have 204 sq. ft. as opposed to the standard 169 sq. ft.
  • Verandah Stateroom 5552 has almost twice the average interior and verandah space. This cabin is also wheelchair accessible.
  • Aft staterooms 5186, 5686, 5188, 5190, 5192, and 5688 are over a bar that features dance music. Noise late into the evening could be of concern in any of these cabins.
  • Aft, Verandah Staterooms 5188 and 5688 have very small verandahs. 
  • Some of the worst cabins are on Deck 5 of the Disney Dream. While we are not suggesting that this deck be entirely avoided, you will be able to find more quiet accommodations on other decks of this ship. We do recommend finding an inside stateroom elsewhere. 

 

Deck 6

Deck 6 is going to be a bit more quiet than Deck 5 on the Disney Dream. For some of the staterooms, there are cabins above and below that buffer noises from public areas.

  • Forward on Deck 6 of the Disney Dream, Ocean View Staterooms 6000- 6008 and 6500- 6506 have beautiful, picturesque views of the ocean from porthole windows. Of these, 6006, 6500, and 6504 are more spacious than average and are wheelchair accessible.
  • Deluxe Inside Staterooms 6501, and 6669- 6673 are 35 sq. ft. larger than standard interior cabins on Deck 6 of the Disney Dream.
  • Deluxe Family Ocean View Staterooms 6010- 6016 and 6508- 6514 are quite spacious. As mentioned, family cabins are very popular given their attractive sleeping arrangements. They sell out very quickly, so it is best to book early to get a family cabin.
  • Between the mid ship and aft elevators on Deck 6 of the Disney Dream, Deluxe Family Ocean View Staterooms with Verandahs (6084- 6144 and 6582- 6644 starboard) are the largest accommodations on this deck. Each has up to 299 sq. ft. including the veranda. Of these, 6088 and 6090 are wheelchair accessible. Family cabins with verandas are highly desirable, and it's important to reserve early on if this is your preference.
  • Aft on Deck 6 of the Disney Dream, Ocean View Staterooms 6186 and 6686 are larger than standard and wheelchair accessible.
  • Verandah staterooms 6188, 6190, 6192, 6690, and 6688 are between the two large ocean view cabins, and have magnificent (less breezy) ocean views!

Deck 7

***CruiseAdvice.org Favorite Deck ***

Deck 7 of the Disney Dream features verandah staterooms, family cabins, and a few inside cabins as well. Because the cabin decks above and below buffer noises generated from public areas, accommodations on Deck 7 tend to be more quiet.

  • Forward on Deck 7 of the Disney Dream, Ocean View Staterooms 7000- 7008 and 7500- 7506 have a beautiful, picturesque view of the ocean from porthole windows. Of these, 7500 is wheelchair accessible. Ocean View Staterooms 7006 and 7504 are especially spacious!

Deck 8

***CruiseAdvice.org Favorite Deck ***
Highly rated by our cruise experts!

Deck 8 of the Disney Dream is very similar in design to Decks 6 and 7, but does offer standard and deluxe inside cabins. Because there are cabin decks above and beneath Deck 8, accommodations here tend to be more quiet. Some of the best cabins on the Disney Dream are on Deck 8!

Deck 9

***CruiseAdvice.org Favorite Deck ***
Highly rated by our cruise experts!

Deck 9 accommodations on the Disney Dream also have cabins above and beneath which help minimize noise from public areas. Some of the best cabins on the Disney Dream are on Deck 9!

Deck 10

***CruiseAdvice.org Warning ***
Several cabins on this deck with potential problems.

Deck 10 of the Disney Dream features an array of exterior staterooms with verandahs, and has three inside staterooms (10545, 10045, and 10047). Travelers need to be aware that the pools and casual dining areas are directly above many of these accommodations, so there could be noise issues in these cabins. Most of the venues above on Deck 11, however, are not going to be late night concerns.

  • In our opinion, the best located cabins on Deck 10 of the Disney Dream are forward and port side (10000- 10032), because these cabins are cushioned by cabins directly above and beneath. Starboard staterooms 10524- 10532 are also going to be relatively quiet.
  • Exterior staterooms 10034- 10056 port side and 10534- 10556 starboard are all under a relatively quiet pool area. However, there could be some noise concerns in these cabins early in the morning and late at night when staff clean this area. You might hear the scraping of deck chairs, for example, as these are moved about.
  • In the rest of the staterooms on Deck 10 of the Disney Dream (10060- 10166 port side and 10560- 10664 starboard) there could be noise issues from the pool and casual dining areas above. 
  • All of the accommodations on Deck 10 of the Disney Dream are cabins with verandahs. Of these, Deluxe Family Ocean View Staterooms with Verandahs (10068- 10130 port side and 10568- 10630 starboard) are the largest accommodations on this deck. Each has up to 299 sq. ft. including the veranda. Again, family cabins with verandas are highly desirable, so it's important to reserve early on if this is your preference.
  • Aft, Deluxe Staterooms with Verandahs are 10158, 10160, 10162, 10164, 10166, 10664, 10662, 10660, and 10658. These have that beautiful (less breezy) aft views of the ocean on Deck 10 of the Disney Dream!

Deck 11

Deck is arguably one of the high-rent district of the ship. Some of the best cabins on the Disney Dream are on Deck 11. This is where many of the suites and penthouse category cabins are located. Given that this is where some the high-dollar cabins are, this is also where the Disney Dream's best cabin stewards are usually assigned.

  • Forward and port side on Deck 11 of the Disney Dream, there are six Concierge 1 Bedroom Suites with Verandahs (11002, 11006, 11008, 11014, 11018, and 11020). Each has up to 622 sq. ft. including verandah space. Of these, 11006 is wheelchair accessible.
