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

Things started to go wrong from the minute we boarded. Greeted in the Centrum and directed to the Caballeros dining room for lunch. We were shown to a table with a view and were served by a very pleasant young man. The buffet style lunch ... Read more

Great R&R trip from the busy northeast! On a quick semi-anniversary trip for 45-44yr olds with kids in college. We got bumped from a couple flights and ended up having to fly into Tampa on cruise day instead of our original plan to ... Read more

This was our 3rd Disney cruise and it did not disappoint! After sailing on the Magic last year we were excited to see how she looked with her new renovations done in the fall. Coming back to the ship, she felt like home yet had some new ... Read more

Just got off the Disney Magic - it was truly a wonderful cruise for the whole family. We reserved three staterooms for ourselves, 2 grandchildren and our daughter and son-in-law. The embarkation is a breeze through Disney's own terminal. ... Read more

First off let me say I love Disney. We are premium passholders so we thought if we love the parks so much we should try a cruise so I called their 800 number asked some questions. Told the guy I talked to that I wanted the boat that had ... Read more

Food I read just about everywhere that the food on this cruise was excellent. I can tell you that it was better than an all-inclusive resort, but excellent is stretching it a little. Overall it was good with a couple of snags: Red Snapper ... Read more

This was our second Disney Cruise, first was on the Disney Dream in October 2012 and, once again, Disney did not disappoint. The embarkation process was easy. Arrived at the port around 12:45, no waiting to check in and right on the ship! ... Read more

Let me first begin in saying there is no such thing as a bad cruise. I know some will disagree with me, especially those on Carnival a couple of seasons ago, but for our family, vacationing on a cruise ship is the best way to go. Even to ... Read more

This was our first cruise ever, so we were new to everything. I did have pretty high expectations for the Disney cruise line, since I know several people who had gone on them and loved them. Our first issue occurred the first day while at ... Read more

Went on the Valentine's Day weekend cruise. We had a standard inside cabin, which was perfect for me and my husband. We didn't spend much time in the room, as there's so much to do on the ship. We took advantage of the adult only areas and ... Read more

I traveled with my mother on this three day "quick-cruise" as a prelude to a Disney Parks visit, to "whet the appetite" for all things Disney. I am mid-30's and she is mid-60's and we both love Disney, and we are used to expecting -and ... Read more

We arrived home today from our very first Disney cruise. Let me start by saying that we have never been on Disney so we have only the "others" to compare it to (Carnival and Royal). There were many things that Disney did better than the ... Read more
