    Re: Disney Dream leaves building dock

    I read somwhere a while ago that one of the reasons for the change was available space in the yards and delivery time!....AKK

    Do you have any information to back up that claim or is that just your assumption? Sure money is the quickest and easiest excuse everyone loves to throw out, but is that the only reason. Could it have anything to do with the Dream being the 3rd largest ship in the world, would Fincantieri have been able to handled such a large ship?

    Guys, I sort of understand that you wanna know why they moved away from Italy, but believe me: The history of this is nothing for a public discussion in a web bulletin-board.

    Re: Disney Dream leaves building dock

    Why would the history of where she was built and why they changed yards not be a good subject?.there seems to be interest in it?
    It is on subject...The Dream!

    With all due respect, if you not interested...don't read the thread!

    If you can't or don't want to share your info then don't... but don't try baiting people by making it seem like there is a scandelous secret either.

    I don't see how asking why a new builder was used, on here is inappropriate this is a discussion related to the building of the Disney Dream.

    I did not want to spoil anybody, sorry if it appeared like that. I just wanted to highlight that you may not get an answer to your question in a place like this. Its not a scadelous secret but its something that is not meant to be written in a public place. People have PMs though

    Re: Disney Dream leaves building dock

    According to the German TV station NDR, the Disney Dream is supposed to leave the shipyard's harbor towards the Atlantic in the next hours. Unfortunately the weather isn't as good as expected so it will take some time until the ship can make its way to the sea.

    Here is a livestream, but on my PC it doesn't work very well. So maybe it doesn't work properly on your's as well.
