This was my first ever cruise. Family of 4 (kids 2 and 6). Embarkation: Not too bad, but we were very rushed. Our time to get on the ship was close to 2 pm which I think was the latest group time assigned. That left almost no time to ... Read more

We just returned from our trip aboard the Disney Fantasy. We hosted our 2nd family cruise & for the most part, it went off without a hitch. The embarkation went very smoothly & the sail away activity was wonderful. We were able ... Read more

This was our third Disney Cruise. Had it not been for poor experiences on shore excursions I would have given it an excellent rating. This ship, the Disney port staff and ship staff were excellent. In our opinion Disney Cruise Lines ... Read more

This was our third cruise for our family of 6 (4 boys, 4,9,10 & 12) with the DCL, but our first on the Magic. We have been on the Wonder and Fantasy in the past. We had adjoining veranda rooms on deck 6 which gave us plenty of space in ... Read more

We loved our cruise on the Disney Magic. Our stateroom with a verandah was a good size for a family of four, and the hospitality staff that kept the stateroom clean was amazing (twice a day refresher). The food onboard was above average ... Read more

It was our 15th Disney Cruise! Disney Dream is one of our favourite ships. We love the size and short convenient sailings as we are DVC members and visit WDW often! Land and Sea is a perfect combination for Disney lovers! Our cabin was ... Read more

DRESS CODE!!! Disney Cruise Lines is in dire need of a dress code for adults. This is a cruise for kids and families. Yet, some passengers treated the pool area like they were on some cheesy Club Med singles ship. Way too many thongs ... Read more

We visited Orlando Disney parks before the cruise. We have always found them to be clean and entertaining, and pricy. The higher cost is worth it to me to enter a park/ship that is clean, family friendly and well maintained, keeps the ... Read more

As a gift for my 50th birthday my family took me on the Disney cruise. This was my first-ever cruise and I did not know what to expect. The Dream was spotless, the rooms were immaculate and the staff was over the top attentive. The shows ... Read more

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
