My DH and I just returned from a 4 night cruise on the Disney Dream. I was a little skeptical about this cruise as we are in our 40s/50s with no children and my DH is not as big on Disney as I am. Disney was offering a pretty good ... Read more

This was our first cruise on Disney, and the first that we've taken with our 4-year old at all. We thought that the shorter duration would give us a chance to see if there were any issues (seasickness, etc.) with our little one traveling ... Read more

After cruising with NCL 7 times previously, including once with our 1 year old, my husband and I decided to give Disney a try since all of the cruise lines (including NCL) now charge for kids under 2. I need to write NCL a thank-you note ... Read more

The Disney Dream was an amazing 4-day cruise. The cruise director Clayton was so much fun and even dressed up like a pirate on Pirate's night. Captain Henry was so friendly and always meeting and greeting with guests aboard the Disney ... Read more

Firstly I'd like to say that I'm _not_ a huge Disney fan, specially when it comes to pleasurable vacations. Oversold ("at capacity") parks, over-crowded hotels, huge lines everywhere, people yelling, children screaming, scorching heat and ... Read more

First the good Embarkation was a breeze. My wife and I were dropped off at the Disney facility at Port Canaveral at 12:30 and were on the ship easily by 1:00. We had a great lunch at the buffet restaurant aft on deck 11. Our inside ... Read more

Just returned from our Disney cruise and wanted to share some of the good and not so good. My husband and I took our 2 granddaughters 5 and 6 on the 3 night Bahama cruise. Good - Embarking was quick and easy. We didn't wait at all. ... Read more

I can see why my Uncle has sailed with Disney 10 times, for families this is the best yet. Disney goes all out with entertainment and food. Much better than Carnival and Royal but I still love my Carnival. In fact I am going on 2 Carnival ... Read more

This was a 4 day get-a-way with a friend & acquaintance. DH was not interested in going. It was basically Nassau & their island. This being my 20th cruise (w/o DH), it was just to relax and see if Disney was a good choice to do a family ... Read more

We just returned from a great cruise on the Disney Dream. We had only one day of bad weather due to Isaac- rained all day on Sunday. The Captain did a great job docking at Castaway Cay on Saturday in the wind- he was determined to get us ... Read more

We have cruised with Carnival before and I refuse to cruise with them again. There were rude people cutting into meal lines, running into people, etc. We cruised with our boys, 14, 11, and 5. Disney had many children but most were with ... Read more

I have never cruised before. I always wanted to take a cruise and knew money wise it would be a one shot deal. I chose Disney because it was my daughters 16th birthday and was not interested in the whole party scene advertised on most of ... Read more
