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

We sailed on the Disney Fantasy recently...our 4th Disney Cruise in the last 3 years. In the past we have had magical times, but this time was a total disappointment. We were dealing with a totally different company. One that seemed to be ... 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

This was our 4th Disney Cruise, and up until this point we were loyal Disney customers. We never would have even considered a different cruise line. However, our 7 night stay on the Fantasy was a major disappointment. Service on the ... Read more

This was a trip of a life-time. The first for most of my expended family. My young family loved our 4 day cruise on Disney Wonder in 2015. It was magical. So we got adjoining staterooms for my parents and my sister and her young family and ... Read more

We loved the ports on this cruise, Antigua and Grenada were beautiful Friendly Islands, but time on the ship was not great. Our room attendant Falcon was awesome, he made amazing towel creations and kept our room very clean and stocked ... Read more

This was our third Disney Cruise, our second with our boys. We booked the cruise well over a year in advance and had a lot of fun planning. We looked at this as one of our big trips, one of only a few we may have while the kids live with ... Read more

The Disney Fantasy won our hearts the first time that we sailed last year on Eastern Caribbean, so we decided to do Western Caribbean this time. The cruise was great and we loved the Disney Fantasy as much as we loved her the first time. ... Read more

There isn't enough words to describe how amazing and wonderful our cruise was. We got home 2 days ago, and I am finally done going through the souvenirs and shopping we did, and have now moved on to the photos. I feel the emotion all over ... Read more

We were a 3-generation group of 6. This was the 17th cruise (4th Disney) for my husband and me and the 2nd cruise (both on Disney) for the rest of our group. We had a wonderful time -- due in combination to whom we were with and the cruise ... Read more

I booked adjoining cabins. We had a 19 month old child with us and I was still recovering from a major knee injury. It didn't take long for us to hear quite loudly the sounds of hammering, drilling and sawing coming from the cabin next ... Read more

My family of two adult and two boys (7 and 9) enjoyed the ship and the ports, but the food really was disappointing. We've also sailed on the Disney Dream for a short cruise several years ago. The food then was a bit better and we hoped ... Read more

I had cruised one time before on Carnival and was definitely underwhelmed. My husband and kids had never cruised before. I chose this vacation because theme parks stress me out to the max and I do not find them one bit enjoyable. Plus, ... Read more

We recently returned from a seven night Southern Caribbean cruise on the Disney Wonder. After our first experience on the Dream one year earlier, we were expecting to be "wowed" in typical Disney fashion. This was not the ... Read more

A frank review from a veteran cruiser, to include 5 Disney cruises. First of all, as always, attentive service is a Disney hallmark. However, the crew is under such pressure to achieve "excellent" ratings that they begin to ... Read more

Pros: 1. The ship is beautiful and a child's dream. My 3 year old had a blast. The kids clubs were amazing. My daughter never wanted to leave and asked repeatedly to go back. The staff working in the kids clubs was very attentive and ... Read more
