We've been lucky enough to travel on several of the major cruise lines, and I have to say that the Disney cruises are the best we've had. This is the second Disney cruise, and it was just as nice as the first one. The ships are clean, ... Read more

We are experienced cruisers (20 on Princess) and were asked by our son to do this Disney cruise with his family. I admit that I was skeptical and wondered how this cruise line would measure up with the Princess cruises we've done and ... Read more

We thought this would be a great cruise for our family: my wife, myself, our 10 year old son and 8 year old daughter. It was more than we expected. Our daughter has several severe food allergies (not intolerances), where she is ... Read more

We chose this cruise as we have always wanted to go to the Fjords and with this being a special "Frozen"-themed cruise to Norway, we couldn't resist! The challenge in researching the cruise was that there was very little ... Read more

My family and I was able to finally experience a Disney Cruise for a fraction of the price! We saved a total of $6,000 for two balcony rooms! We are a family of four adults and decided having two rooms would be best. We are Disney fanatics ... Read more

If you can get past the forced smiles and the pain when you walked by (if you were to engage a crew member), just ignore this and it was very nice. We preferred the sit down restaurant experience over the buffet situations on board and our ... Read more

This was my first Disney Cruise and my wifes 2nd (I previously did a Royal Caribbean - Mexico). At first I was a little apprehensive with it being a Disney Cruise. I didn't want it to be like a Disney Park and I didn't want it to be ... Read more

This was our fifth disney cruise. It was of course wonderful. We haven't sailed on the Fantasy for a bit so I thought I would give my tips: 1) Don't bother with Remy or Palo. We liked Remy on our last cruise but I think upon reflection ... Read more
