I cruised with my 10 year old son as a birthday gift for him. We had previously taken a Carnival cruise 5 years ago, and were told that we needed to make our next cruise a Disney Cruise. I know that a lot of people are put off initially ... Read more

This was my fifth cruise aboard the Disney Dream and tenth with Disney overall. I really have absolutely nothing bad to say...every one of them has been amazing. Other than the fact it was only three nights (which I normally never do!) I ... Read more

I chose this cruise because I have three granddaughters that are huge princess fans. We have cruised with other lines for hundreds of nights but this was our first Disney cruise. I chose cabins on the concierge level. We had three ... Read more

We've been lucky enough to travel on several of the major cruise lines, and I have to say that the Disney cruises are the best we've had. This is the second Disney cruise, and it was just as nice as the first one. The ships are clean, ... Read more

We are experienced cruisers (20 on Princess) and were asked by our son to do this Disney cruise with his family. I admit that I was skeptical and wondered how this cruise line would measure up with the Princess cruises we've done and ... Read more

Wow had an amazing time on the Disney Dream . The service was outstanding and was the entertainment. The ship was booked and crowded but the adults areas where practically empty giving us our own quiet space on the deck. No fault to ... Read more

If you can get past the forced smiles and the pain when you walked by (if you were to engage a crew member), just ignore this and it was very nice. We preferred the sit down restaurant experience over the buffet situations on board and our ... Read more

This was our 3rd Disney cruise and 2nd on the Disney Dream. I have been on over 20 cruises with different lines and still feel that Disney offers the best cruise experience for families with younger children(3-12). Once you get into the ... Read more
