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

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
