Résumé de l'éditeur

A photographic souvenir book of the third Disney Cruise Ship.

THERE'S SOMETHING MAGICAL about a cruise. Perhaps it's the phenomenon of falling asleep in one port of call and waking up in a completely new destination. Maybe it's the combination of crystal blue water, crisp salty air, and glorious sunshine. Or it could be the incredible onshore excursions, the bountiful mouthwatering cuisine, and the fabulous onboard entertainment. Whatever it is, the creative forces behind Disney Cruise Line Services have capitalized on it and added an extra sprinkling of pixie dust to produce a cruise experience that takes Guests to Never Land and back again.

With the launch of the Disney Magic Cruise Ship and the Disney Wonder Cruise Ship, the cruising industry was revolutionized in an unprecedented way. Aesthetically and functionally, the Disney ships were dramatically different from any liners that had preceded them, and cruise-goers responded with overwhelming enthusiasm. But one thing the Walt Disney Company has never been content to do is rest on its laurels. So in 2007, Disney Cruise Line Services announced that it would be building the Disney Dream Cruise Ship.

Welcome Aboard! The Creation of the Disney Dream chronicles the conception and construction of this pioneering ship. From port to starboard, bow to stern, keel to deck, innovations abound, and the secrets behind them are revealed by none other than the Disney Imagineers who initiated and oversaw the ship's creation. Readers are invited to peer into every porthole and discover the staterooms, restaurants, waterslides, stage shows, and all the other ingredients that make a cruise on the Disney Dream Cruise Ship truly one-of-a-kind.
