Contributing photographer Jason of disneygeek.com sends us these photos from his cruise aboard the Disney Dream. This set of pictures are from Day 1 as he toured the ship, focusing on the Christmas decorations around the ship and the tree lighting ceremony. For pictures of the ship in general please visit disneygeek.com for his full update.
