What a beautiful ship-it's Disney! Embrakation was seamless-welcome announcement was a delight-BAM there were the Disney characters in all their glory. This is kids only experience so adults don't look a casino-there a few lounges-adult ... Read more

We booked a Disney cruise after speaking to several people that have taken them and after reading reviews. We booked a 1 bedroom concierge suite which was great but not worth the extra charge. Checkin at Port Canaveral was at the ... Read more

This was our first Disney cruise (I travelled with my wife and 10 year old daughter). We spent 2 nights at a Disney resort prior to embarking at Port Canaveral, so had high expectations. We were not disappointed. We we dropped off at ... 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

We took two of our grandchildren (ages 9 and 11) and mom on a four day, three night cruise to Nassau and Castaway Cay. We didn't use any of the Disney child care as the trip was so short and we had plans off ship. The kids had a ball. ... Read more

How could I, of all people, diss Disney? After all, I grew up with the Mickey Mouse Club. I’d have given anything to meet Annette Funicello. Later, we lived near Anaheim and visited Disneyland often. I’d have bought a home ... Read more

I have only been on one other cruise (on another cruise line) before and swore I would never go again. My wife convinced me to give it one more try and she booked us on the Disney Dream. Best vacation I have ever had so far! I was ... Read more

The Disney Dream was the first cruise for any of our family with 2 & 7 y.o girls. The overall experience of the cruise was amazing. It takes a lot of organisation to get things done but there was not a minute of boredom/downtime during ... Read more

We sailed on the Dream on March 28 for a 4 night cruise. My husband and I were able to use the adult pool areas because my 17 year old son found the Vibe teen club on the first day and spent most of his ship time there from that point on. ... Read more

After much anticipation, we boarded the Disney Magic on March 27th, Easter Sunday, for a 4-day cruise to Castaway Cay and the Bahamas. Boarding was smooth and the quality of the food at lunch - a buffet - was excellent. The cabin was ... Read more

We had a navigator's verandah cabin and loved it. There was plenty of storage for the three of us - we did not even use some of the drawer space. My 5 year old grand daughter had a ball; she loved the character meets and seeing the ... Read more

I've cruised many cruise lines, Disney was honestly a disappointment. First the cost is double so you should be able to expect double right? Wrong. Employees with no personality waiting for their 8 months to be up ! People pushing and ... Read more

After hearing so much from friends about Disney cruising, we had to try it. After all, my wife and I are veteran cruisers and stick to all the newer ships on the 3 main cruise lines, Carnival, NCL, and Royal Caribbean. Our thoughts ... Read more

This was our 5th Disney cruise and 3rd on the Fantasy. The service was excellent as always. We didn't find the food quality to be as good as in previous sailings. Most items were bland. The breakfast buffet has many items, but most are not ... Read more
