The best part of the cruise was our 11 yo daughter had a blast in the tween area ("The Edge"). The rest of it was good, but not great. It was Disney, so of course it was very sanitized and controlled which was mostly a good ... Read more

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 picked Disney Cruise mainly because of the focus on younger kids. Based on all the reviews I've read this is supposed to be the best cruise for kids (with no casino and has many kids focused activities such as the Oceaneer Club and ... Read more

One of the advantages of our recent move to Florida is to take advantage of the easy access to ports for quick weekends away. With our birthdays bracketing the recent weekend, we chose to celebrate the two of us on the Disney Dream. ... Read more
