We sailed on the Dream on March 28 for a 4 night cruise. My husband and I were able to use the adult pool areas because my 17 year old son found the Vibe teen club on the first day and spent most of his ship time there from that point on. ... Read more

I've cruised many cruise lines, Disney was honestly a disappointment. First the cost is double so you should be able to expect double right? Wrong. Employees with no personality waiting for their 8 months to be up ! People pushing and ... Read more

This was my family's second Disney cruise, last one was in 2013. Disney's reputation for clean vessels, family friendly atmosphere and no hassle cruises is well deserved and maintained. When other cruise ships pull into port next to ... Read more

We just returned from our second Disney cruise and loved every minute of it! We flew into Orlando the night before and stayed at the airport Hyatt. This is so easy because we never leave the airport and they have lots of food options you ... Read more

After hearing so much from friends about Disney cruising, we had to try it. After all, my wife and I are veteran cruisers and stick to all the newer ships on the 3 main cruise lines, Carnival, NCL, and Royal Caribbean. Our thoughts ... Read more

We wanted to take a family vacation that would appeal to the adults as well as my 20 month old daughter. She LOVES Mickey and the Princesses. I had read that Disney cruises were amazing and worth the money. So I thought we would give it a ... Read more

My husband and I took this cruise because we have never taken one before. We both visit Disney World once or twice a year so what better way to try out a cruise than to go with our favorite vacation company? Wrong. First, we decided to ... Read more

Yes, all of the reviews are accurate. No one does it better than disney. You know the experience will be unique from the time you step on board. This was a first cruise for my son and 4 grandchildren. We had two connecting cabins and truly ... Read more

This was our first cruise ever. We used our DVC points and figured we would try a 3 day just in case we didn't like it. I don't even have the words to describe what an amazing time we had. The ship was immaculate, our outside state room ... Read more

Sanitation was nothing compared to Royal Caribbean or Norwegian. As annoying as those ships can be with constantly forcing you to wash your hands. On the Disney cruise the had wipes everywhere but only gave you a whip into the ... Read more

We were a 3-generation group of 6. This was the 17th cruise (4th Disney) for my husband and me and the 2nd cruise (both on Disney) for the rest of our group. We had a wonderful time -- due in combination to whom we were with and the cruise ... Read more

I had cruised one time before on Carnival and was definitely underwhelmed. My husband and kids had never cruised before. I chose this vacation because theme parks stress me out to the max and I do not find them one bit enjoyable. Plus, ... Read more

For first time cruisers, we tried our best to prepare by listening to the advice of prior cruisers. However, nothing could prepare us for the absolutely best time we have ever had. We stayed at the Orlando Airport Hyatt 2 days prior. ... Read more
