We expected a lot from Disney and were not disappointed. Staff are excellent, and go out of their way to make sure everyone is having the best experience possible. The food was very good, and having the servers join us in the different ... Read more

We LOVE Disney and have bought the Vacation Club and have enjoyed many visits to both land and sea. We have cruised on the Magic several times before. This time we noticed some changes I thought I would note. I agree wholeheartedly with ... Read more

We chose to travel with our grandchildren and their parents to celebrate both of the children's 3rd & 11th birthdays. We chose aft balconies on the port side. We usually were on the land side when we docked and saw the port. I suggest ... Read more

I expected my first Disney cruise to blow me away. The dinner service was so lacking that it colored my whole cruise. My paid for birthday cake for my special birthday which was not delivered on the correct evening was so disappointing. ... Read more

I am a Disney fanatic, so I had great expectations for this cruise with my family. Unfortunately my experience was poor, nothing magical about the Disney Cruise. First the good things: Shows were the best I've ever seeing on a ship ... Read more

The Disney top notch customer service began even before we stepped on the ship. They sent emails every once in a while reminding us of things to bring, preorder, and book (e.g. excursions, photos packages, etc.). Then, when it got closer, ... Read more

Hi, I actually was very disappointed on my cruise trip. The ship was nothing I had imagine, it was a small and old cruise. I guess it's my fault for not doing the research but this is not what I had in mind. The service was great though, ... Read more

First, I want to commend Andy (from Germany) and Michelle (from UK) on impeccable service and hospitality as the concierge hosts. They give everything of themselves every day and are great with children and guests and this is NOT a ... Read more

We had such a great time on this cruise. We felt like we were in a brochure for a great family vacation! It was our first cruise since having kids, and our 5 and 7 year old sons really enjoyed it - they never asked to use their iPads ... Read more

Cruised with Celebrity and Royal Caribbean before, and heard so many good things about Disney, that we we had high expectations. You don't have that wow feeling when you board or tour the ship. It is very congested on the pool ... Read more

First cruise (with husband & 8 year old son). The size of the ship was perfect. Big enough to explore but small enough to quickly get to anywhere we needed to go. Very quick tendering in Grand Cayman and embarkation and disembarkation ... Read more

Let me start off by saying that for what this vacation was targeted for, it was good. It was targeted for children and in that regard, it was a pretty good cruise. This was intended for the kids, not for the adults. This was ... Read more

This was my 8th DCL cruise and my third time on the Magic. I just adore this classic ship. The larger ones are nice, but not intimate like the Magic and Wonder. We noticed our last cruise on the Magic had a bit of a tired menu and the ... Read more

The cruise was a great experience overall. My husband and two daughters loved it. We went with the grandparents, uncles and cousins. The entertainment on board is the best. Don't miss any shows at the big theater. Our 5 year old loved ... Read more

This was our 2nd cruise and I will admit I was geared up for disappointment based on my previous cruise (Carnival). I could not have been more wrong about what to expect by sailing with Disney. From the moment we arrived at the airport to ... Read more

I researched all cruise lines & ships that focus on kids, because I was taking my 8 yr old grandson on his first cruise, for Christmas. Disney was the winner. And Disney Magic had activities I thought he'd enjoy, as well as island ... Read more

The ship was amazing and very clean. There was always a seat available when you went to the buffet or pool deck, even though the ship was totally full. There were tons of Disney characters around the ship, but even when you reserved ... Read more

I have sailed on 4 cruise lines, but this was my first time with Disney. The food and room were definitely the best we have ever experienced. Our room (standard) was 3X the size of our family room on Norwegian last year. With two young ... Read more

We were excited when Disney decided to return to NYC. We had previously sailed on the Magic in 2012 to Canada from NYC. This was a very different cruise with 4 sea days, 1 day at Castaway Cay and 1 day at Port Canaveral (really at Walt ... Read more

With a 5 year old we thought it was time to try a Disney Cruise. The cruise itself was good, it just wasn't any better than Carnival, Royal Caribbean or Norwegian. For triple the price I think we just expected more than normal. The food ... Read more

I love the Disney Magic! This was my second Disney cruise and both have been on the Magic out of NYC. I was sailing with my parents and we did not have any kids with us. Overall, nothing beats the service on a Disney cruise and the food is ... Read more

This was my family's first Disney Cruise. (2 kids - 10 & 8 year old) We sailed from New York's Manhattan Cruise Terminal (parked our car there - no problem, easy and convenient. It was $200 for the 5 nights). Check in was easy. We ... Read more

We were on the DVC member's cruise, so this was not your average trip. This older ship has been re-habbed & is in great shape, including updates to 1 dining room and to the outdoor children's pool area. We travel without children and ... Read more

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
