    Does Disney's new cruise ship have the best bathrooms at sea?

    There's been a lot of buzz in Cruisedom this year about cruise ship bathroom design, thanks in no small part to the innovative but controversial cabin bathrooms on the five-month-old Norwegian Epic. So it perhaps should come as no surprise that cruise writers were taking a hard look this week at the cabin bathrooms on Disney's newest cruise ship, the Disney Dream, during a preview tour of the vessel at the Meyer Werft shipyard in Germany (click for our gallery of photos from the visit).
    The consensus among cruise writers: The Disney Dream's cabin bathrooms are winners. Big time.
    Disney made waves in the industry in the 1990s when it announced its first two ships, the Disney Magic and Disney Wonder, would have two bathrooms in every cabin -- one with a sink and toilet; one with a sink and a shower and/or tub. And the innovative dual bathroom concept -- a nod to the line's family focus that has up to five people sharing a basic cabin, all needing to get ready at the same time -- is back on the 2,500-passenger Dream.
    Nearly all of the 1,250 cabins on the Dream come with the dual bathrooms, which are shown in the photos to the right. Cruise writers touring the ship this week were impressed with the cleverly efficient, everything-in-the-right-place layout of the bathrooms, each of which has excellent lighting above the sink area and plenty of storage for toiletries.
    Note the shower that doubles as a bathtub in the second bathroom. A rarity in basic cabins on some lines, a bathtub is standard in a large number of the Disney Dream's cabins -- a nod to the big number of bath time-loving toddlers who will be sailing on the ship.



    Each of the bathrooms is closed off behind its own solid door for privacy.
    Under construction for more than a year at the Meyer Werft shipyard, the 128,000-ton Disney Dream is just weeks away from being finished and is scheduled to sail its maiden voyage out of Port Canaveral, Fla., on Jan. 26. Once in regular service, the ship will sail three- and four-night cruises to the Bahamas.

    So what do you think ~ would it be worth being surrounded by hundreds of children for the sake of a better bathroom & is it something you'd like introduced on other lines?
