We chose Disney because in the past it has beat out all the competitors by a long shot. The price of Disney is double to sometimes 4x the price of other ships. The price is no longer worth it. The ship had paint peeling on the balconies, ... Read more

This was our 2nd time on the Disney Dream and it was just as good as the 1st cruise 2.5 years ago. The service is excellent and DCL doesn't nickel & dime you to death like other cruise lines do. We had no problems at embarkation or ... Read more

Although the Disney experience including all of the crew made us feel like royalty, the serving staff, which was the same each meal, made us feel like part of their family. I have never felt more effort put forth to empathize with our ... Read more

We sailed on the Wonder last year for a 5 day before dry dock. The work that they did was fantastic. Cabanas (the buffet) is much more functional and much roomier than it used to be, never really had any trouble finding a table ... Read more
