Let me first say that by no means have I been a Disney hater and it pains me a bit to write this review. In fact, I have been a huge fan of the Mouse my whole life being an annual pass holder on both coasts, spending 6 of the last 10 ... 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

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

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

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
