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

I have always wanted to do a cruise and we enquired in our travel agents, and they had a great deal on sailing for 7 nights and staying in Animal Kingdom for 6 nights, with an overnight stay on International Drive for our 1st night ... 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

Our waiters were great. The food at dinner was ok it just didn't have enough flavor to it. It was a little slow getting our food, and I wish we had the earlier dining. I would suggest ordering your desert the same time as our meal this ... Read more

Overall, we loved this cruise! Although the weather didn't cooperate (Hurricane Matthew), Disney bent over backwards to give us the vacation we hoped for. From changing the cruise destinations to providing a free night on the ship, they ... Read more
