Just off Disney Wonder. Brought 13 yr. old with me. Been on 93 cruises and this was the least enjoyable. Ship immaculate. Food delicious. Service outstanding. But...absolutely no activities for us. Tremendous blocks of empty time. ... Read more

This was our 5th Disney cruise and 3rd on the Fantasy. The service was excellent as always. We didn't find the food quality to be as good as in previous sailings. Most items were bland. The breakfast buffet has many items, but most are not ... Read more

Food was very good. Entertainment was very good. Service was excellent. Biggest disappointment was Castaway Cay as water and air temp too low for us to swim. Teen activities had things scheduled to start at 1 am so DD14 always asking ... Read more

This was our first cruise ever. We used our DVC points and figured we would try a 3 day just in case we didn't like it. I don't even have the words to describe what an amazing time we had. The ship was immaculate, our outside state room ... Read more

This was our third Disney cruise. We have been on the Fantasy, the Magic (post-dry dock) and now the Wonder. I was second guessing booking on the Wonder as I know that dry dock is coming up for her and I was thinking that maybe she would ... Read more

First time cruisers. Likely, last time cruisers. I really expected to love this. I had never heard anyone who didn't. They say no one does customer service like Disney. This is simply not true. No one extracts money like Disney. ... Read more

This was our 4th Disney Cruise, and up until this point we were loyal Disney customers. We never would have even considered a different cruise line. However, our 7 night stay on the Fantasy was a major disappointment. Service on the ... Read more

This was a trip of a life-time. The first for most of my expended family. My young family loved our 4 day cruise on Disney Wonder in 2015. It was magical. So we got adjoining staterooms for my parents and my sister and her young family and ... Read more

This was our third Disney Cruise, our second with our boys. We booked the cruise well over a year in advance and had a lot of fun planning. We looked at this as one of our big trips, one of only a few we may have while the kids live with ... Read more

The Disney Fantasy won our hearts the first time that we sailed last year on Eastern Caribbean, so we decided to do Western Caribbean this time. The cruise was great and we loved the Disney Fantasy as much as we loved her the first time. ... Read more
