Bottom line: Too many people, too many lowlifes, and the rooms/food just aren't worth the money they are charging. Like most other things, it doesn't live up to the hype. Booked a 4 day cruise on the Dream to celebrate my Daughter's ... Read more

We switched to this cruise when Disney changed the itinerary of the 12 night cruise to remove Greece and Turkey. This cruise allowed us more time to tour on our own and in our opinion adequately explored the same area as the new 12 night ... Read more
