I was told the ship was almost at capacity with 2640 guests. 900 of the guests were children. I was given a free upgrade to a cabin with a large window which was nice. The cabin was clean and comfortable. My son loved the mini-tub. Every ... Read more

DCL had a fabulous deal on its May Med cruises of a category 12 guarantee plus kids sail free. We paid almost nothing for the cruise fare for the 4 of us. So, I decided it was time to give DCL a try. There was me, mom, 45+, DS14, DD11 and ... Read more

I was offered a great travel agent rate for this cruise (first time to sail on Disney Cruise Line). My hubby was busy at work, so I asked a good friend to go with me. We flew from ATL to MCO the morning of the cruise and used the Disney ... Read more

Sometimes a product and a customer just aren't a good match. That was the case with this cruise. My wife and 7-year-old son absolutely loved it. Shows were awesome, food was excellent, service was above and beyond and I rated the cruise ... Read more

Due to the cost of parking at the port we elected to stay at the Counrty Inn and Suites in Port Canaveral the evening before as they give you free parking and transfers for 2 for just a $20 add on. We arrived at the port around 10:30 and ... Read more

I have to say that I have never cruised before, and never really had any interest until another family asked if we would be interested in going with them. We thought this would be a good idea as we both have 10 year old daughters who are ... Read more

Check in took about 1/2 hour and then we were welcomed by the Disney crew. Afterwards we located our cabin, dropped off our carry on luggage, and went to the buffet for lunch. The buffet was great; lots of variety, very clean, and great ... Read more

Cabin- Nice size. Love the split bath. Bring your own hairdryer! There are no irons in the room and you have to go to the laundry room to wait in line. Don't wait until right before dinner. Having a verandah was a smart move- so nice to ... Read more
