Disney World is known by creating magic and by providing customer service that is by far the best in the world, thinking of exceeding that, it is impossible but there is one place that tops it by 1000 times. On September 28th we (my hubby, ... Read more

We chose this Panama Canal cruise so we could visit my niece and family in San Diego, the have a leisurely journey back home to Port Canaveral, twenty minutes from our house. It was a really good cruise, nine sea days and four ports. ... Read more

We just got back today from a 14 day Panama Canal crossing. In typical Disney fashion, everything was well organized from the check in to the disembarkation. Nobody does it as well as Disney. The Wonder is heading to Spain tomorrow for ... Read more

My family and I was able to finally experience a Disney Cruise for a fraction of the price! We saved a total of $6,000 for two balcony rooms! We are a family of four adults and decided having two rooms would be best. We are Disney fanatics ... Read more

OK, this was my 18th Cruise with Disney, I have tried others, but really prefer the family atmosphere on disney ships. I had low expectations of the ports of call (Boston, Sydney - Canada - Dublin and Liverpool) but I love a long ... Read more

Got offered a deal on Disney Wonder East Bound Panama Cruise 23 Nov 2015 - bit worried as I am not a great lover of Disney - or children - perhaps that's why I have a Grumpy T shirt. My wife wanted to go - so off we went. Had a good few ... Read more

Disney Cruises appears to be trying to attract an "older crowd", meaning older than 6 maybe, not sure of the definition. So we thought we'd try it. We have about 10 cruises under our collective adult belts. Let's start with ... Read more

Somehow, going into this, I had myself convinced there would be services over and above regular cruises. I suppose the price gave me that idea. We cruised with our 9 month old twins. Crazy? Likely a little. 2 pack n plays took up the ... Read more

In a nutshell: It was awesome. On a scale of 1-100, I'd give it a 97. The cruise had high expectations -- we were dipping into savings and pulling the kids (7 and 5 years old) out of school as we felt this kind of length of cruise and ... Read more

If you want to take a Disney cruise but think it's a bit pricey...and it will be...unless you take an unpricey repositioning cruise to the Panama Canal from Miami to San Diego. We booked early (14 months prior to cruise) to get best rate ... Read more

The cabin was clean and our steward was polite. The common areas and restrooms were kept clean as well. My problem was with the wait staff. This was my 5th cruise with Disney, I am a DVC Member, and this may be my last. For those that ... Read more

Positives: -Very few children on the Canal Crossing which meant the characters got to know the children by name. -Our room location, experience was great. -Although every room was sold, most rooms were only 2 pax, so the ship ... Read more

Our transatlantic cruise was the trip of a lifetime. I did not expect to enjoy every minute so much because I had anticipated a tedious, boring voyage. So happy to be proved wrong! If there is a lecturer on board advising what to see and ... Read more

This was our 2nd Disney Cruise Line (DCL) cruise and it was great. We were a little anxious at potential rough seas in the middle of the Atlantic, but we had great weather and it was like a millpond all the way. Disney Magic is a ... Read more

We started our trip with a couple of days pre-cruise in Barcelona, staying at the Renaissance. We've stayed there before and use it for its convenience for cruise transfers, even though it is a little out of the way for the centre of ... Read more

My wife and I took the Westbound Transatlantic on the Disney Magic. We were in stateroom 8058, a veranda (balcony) room. We have only done one other cruise before, a Princess cruise in 2009, and the Disney Magic Transatlantic cruise was ... Read more

Flying from the UK to Florida and staying in the airport hotel meant we were off to a relaxing start. The Disney Cruise Line Shuttle was a great way to transfer from airport to port. We checked in by 12, had a low number (2) to board and ... Read more

This 4-night Bahamian cruise was booked months before the Disney Dream had her maiden voyage. Since then, we have been reading posts from former guests, and I confess we was pretty scared about what to expect from this cruise. It seemed ... Read more

Though we're 60+ and were taking no children with us, we chose this cruise because we thought we'd like having the days at sea to enjoy the Disney experience and we were not disappointed. We booked air through Disney and they make the ... Read more

We travelled from Dayton to Orlando by plane and took the shuttle to the port. At the port, we were greeted with massive swarms of "love bugs", so the outside decks of the ship were closed. The beginning of the cruise was humid, stuffy and ... Read more
