Our Stateroom on the Disney Dream

A small part of Nassau, Bahamas, is visible out the window of our stateroom on the Disney Cruise Line’s Disney Dream ship.

As you can imagine, staterooms on cruise ships aren’t known for their extravagant size. I’m sure they could make the rooms larger, but then they couldn’t get as many rooms on the ship, which would mean that they would either not make as much money or charge more per room. And you can guess which of those options they would choose. But for the three of us, we had plenty of room to move around. And if it felt cramped, we could go out on the verandah or go elsewhere on the ship.

Our verandah this time was several feet larger than what we had on our previous cruise, and I am guessing that is mainly due to the location of our room on the ship. Of course, we did pay slightly more for that larger verandah this time, but it definitely was nice. Most of the time. For most of the day before I took this photo, there was another ship right outside our verandah. Not close enough to touch or anything, but it definitely dominated the view. Nothing to complain about, because I know from past experience that our ship usually isn’t the only one in Nassau. But this photo is much better with the water view than with the ship view out the window.

And sorry about Jaylin’s clothes on the couch, as well as my hat, camera bag, and Coke cup on the counter. I should have moved all of that to make this look like one of those travel brochure photos instead of like one of our vacation photos. Oh well. I’ll just have to go back and try again.

About the Photo

This might have been better with a wide angle lens, but instead I decided to stay with my 25mm f/1.8 lens to make the most of the natural light inside the stateroom without completely blowing out the outside portions. The alternative would have been to get out the tripod and the 14-42mm lens set at 14mm, and then shoot multiple exposures. And move our stuff out of the frame, if I were to go to all of that other trouble.
