Ok, overall, we had a great family vacation. Ship was very clean and well maintained. However, as we had heard such great things about Disney cruises, we had high expectations. The character meet and greets and photos were great. My 2 ... Read more

I cruised with my 10 year old son as a birthday gift for him. We had previously taken a Carnival cruise 5 years ago, and were told that we needed to make our next cruise a Disney Cruise. I know that a lot of people are put off initially ... Read more

Our kids are 10 & 8 years old and we figured it was time to do a Disney cruise before they were too old to appreciate the Disney characters. Overall the cruise on the Fantasy was very nice. The ship is beautiful and easy to get around: ... Read more

The Great This may take a while. There were so many great things to mention. Disney is great with details. From the "Mickey" shaped face for my daughters ketchup, to the Disney themed menu each night, they really do a great ... Read more

My family has always wanted to go to Alaska. With our three children growing up so quickly, the oldest one year away from college, this trip was at the top of our "Family Vacation" bucket list. We have solely cruised Disney (4 ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we wanted to make memories with our daughter, her husband, and two grandchildren ages 5 and 7, and this seemed to be the perfect time. Just for reference, I've been on about a dozen cruises, but never on a ... Read more

This was our first cruise and we'd heard that Disney was the best. First of all, the ship was beautiful. Little touches like Disney music playing in the corridors really made it special. It only took a day or two to easily find our way ... Read more

On our first Disney cruise, following many other cruises on different lines, we were curious to see how it would compare. I travelled with my 23 year old daughter and her friend...3 to a room, and it was adequately spacious for the three ... Read more

We traveled with family - 6 adults (ages 60, 58, 35, 32, 29 and 25) and an 11 year old across three cabins. I've been on three prior Carnival cruises, but this was my first Disney cruise. I married into a Disney-loving family and we've all ... Read more

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 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
