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
