We enjoyed the ship - excellent shape. There were a lot of children running around and not taught to be polite and considerate of others in public. We made use of the adult only areas for quiet time. The major issue was screaming ... Read more

We were on the DVC member's cruise, so this was not your average trip. This older ship has been re-habbed & is in great shape, including updates to 1 dining room and to the outdoor children's pool area. We travel without children and ... Read more

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 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

My wife and I choose to cruise again this month after most spring breaks and before the summer crush. The weather the first night caused some rough seas, but it was great the rest of the cruise. We had a nice day in Nassau, not too hot ... Read more

Sanitation was nothing compared to Royal Caribbean or Norwegian. As annoying as those ships can be with constantly forcing you to wash your hands. On the Disney cruise the had wipes everywhere but only gave you a whip into the ... Read more
