This was our second Disney cruise with our young grandchildren. We entered the terminal about 12:45. EMBARKATION- This was smooth and efficient. However, at check-in we were informed that the ship would not be going to Castaway Cay ... Read more

Last month I wrote an extensive CC review of our first time aboard the Disney Dream. This time being our second time on the vessel, we were able to enjoy nuances that we didn't notice in our first time (like the very nice gym and ... Read more

These are just my random thoughts in no particular order: Getting on the ship was very easy. Just took a few minutes. They have characters in the lobby for pics so my 3 yr old was entertained while we waited. Max 15 minute line to ... Read more

Arrival and check in: As a concierge member, your check-in for the bus to the port is a separate counter with NO lines. Sweet. We were placed on the available bus and left immediately for a 40 minute ride to the port during which they ... Read more

Many years ago we took Sea Escape on a cruise to nowhere and I got sick and did not like the ship or experience at all. This turned me off on cruising and I never was interested. We travel allot internationally and the idea of just being ... Read more

I am writing this review specifically in response to the review that said small children with food allergies will be left to go hungry. We took our 14-month old daughter on a 4-night cruise on the Disney Dream in September, 2012, and (with ... Read more

I will admit, I was a little concerned about taking a Disney cruise without children. We have been to the parks and enjoyed the high level of service, so we decided to try the ship on for size. We were not disappointed, and did not feel ... Read more

I sailed on the Disney Dream as part of a group of 35 women (ages 26-60+). I spent the majority of my time with a group of about 10 that I was related to or friends of relatives. This trip was a "Girls Weekend Getaway". I'll admit that ... Read more

We recently took the special Pixar sailing of the Disney Wonder along the California Coast. The entertainment and kids's programs were wonderful but that's about where the fun ended. The food was hardly edible, unless you like chicken ... Read more

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

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
