Disney Dream is the newest and largest cruise ship unveiled by the company and arrived in Florida on Thursday.

The Dream is the third ship in the Disney Cruise Line and holds around 4,000 passengers and 1,458 crew members. The cruise ship begins its Maiden Voyage on Jan. 26 with a second trip on Jan. 30.

The massive family-oriented ship also includes 14 “towering decks” and has 1,250 staterooms on its 130,000-ton frame, the company said in a statement. It is 1,115 feet long and has a maximum width of 125 feet.

The Dream most recently traveled across the Atlantic Ocean from where it was built in Papenburg, Germany. It “was designed to reflect the glamour of the golden age of cruising during the 1930s,” the company said.

The ship will visit all the popular destinations in the Caribbean, including the Bahamas.

Amenities await families who board the Dream, including “youth clubs,” family deck parties, movies, music shows, and more.

The Dream also features the AquaDuck water coaster, which shoots passengers off the side of the ship above open water, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
