We did our first Disney Cruise and expectation were high but it actually turned out to be an average cruise. In my opinion it was overpriced for what was provided. The only advantage of Disney is having the Characters on the boat and if ... Read more

First let me say that overall we definetly enjoyed the cruise. We were on the Disney Magic, which is approx 17 years old, and this is obvious when you board. Perhaps some of the let down was on me, as I set my expectations based on 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

After a year of grumbling about being 'dragged' onto a DISNEY cruise by my wife, daughter, and grand-daughter, I have to admit that this was the best of the three cruises I’ve been on. I have to start by debunking a suspicion ... Read more

Disney does a lot of things right, which is why they cost a significant amount more than other cruise lines. This one however, was a bust. It was partially our fault for thinking that just because a room cost $4K it would be nice (inside ... Read more

We are Castaways Club members and, as such, have been on several Disney Cruises. In fact, we will not cruise on any other cruise line. Having said that, our recent cruise on the Disney Magic was disappointing. The ship is in dire need ... Read more

We traveled over Spring Break with our family of four - mom, dad, and two boys ages 13 and 11. As first time Disney cruisers, we were a little worried it may be geared toward a younger crowd and that we would be fighting off character ... Read more

I knew what to expect of Disney after our 3-night trip on the Dream in January, but I could not have believed that the Magic would find its way into our hearts as our second home! Embarcation was a breeze, we arrived at the port about 1pm ... Read more
