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 chose the cruise because of the wonderful time the family, eleven of us in total, had on the Magic in the Mediterranean. The embarkation was alright but it seemed like the staff were pressured. The ship at a glance seemed nice. My wife ... Read more

This is my 4th Disney Cruise and I must say it was probably my favorite so far. I've been on all the other Disney ships, and the Wonder is by far an older ship, but well kept and very clean. You definitely still experience the Disney ... 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

We chose the Disney Dream because so many people had raved about the experience. Let me say that the customer service was exceptional from embarkation to debarkation. The cleanliness of the room and the cabin steward were excellent as ... 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

We took our son, daughter-in-law, and two granddaughters (age 3 & 5). The first night we were on our way to a meet and greet when we ran into Minnie Mouse. She gave the 3 year old a big hug and a kiss on the cheek. Her reaction was ... Read more
