Since this was our 2nd Disney Cruise I think the magic wore off. The ship is beautiful but the pool is too small. A cruise primarily aimed at kids should have a BIG pool. This pool was much too crowded. Cabin was nice. Service ... Read more

Embarkation Process: Quick and easy if you check in online first. Overall process from the time that we arrived at the port to the time that our name was announced on the boat as we stepped on board was roughly 1 hour 15 minutes. We ... Read more

This was our first Disney cruise with a family of 10 in 4 cabins; two inside and two ocean view. Embarkation was okay although it seemed we had to wait in the terminal longer than on other cruiselines. The ship was very clean and cabins ... Read more

We took this cruise for a five day stint as first time cruisers for any cruise line. Before reviewing anything at all, I will let the reader know that the five day cruise for the non experienced cruiser is not enough. I will explain why ... Read more

My husband and I threw down some serious money to take our 3 year old son on a Disney cruise, and now I'm a little worried that we'll be taking a Disney cruise every year from here on out because we LOVED it! We started the trip with the ... Read more

For us, this was by far the most expensive cruise we have taken , but it was well worth it to see what joy it brought to our children and grandchildren. This was our first Disney cruise and it was everything that we had anticipated. ... Read more

We sailed the Disney Dream for our first time cruise the end of June'15-early July'15. What a fantastic experience. I want to start by saying I have a 14 yr old autistic son. We never told any crew but they all embraced my son in every ... Read more

This is the first trip on the Disney Dream. My son (23 yr.) and I took this cruise because of the two stops at Disney's private island, Castaway Cay. The embarkment day went smoothly and quickly. We had an inside room which had plenty of ... Read more

This was our second voyage on the Dream in the last 6 months - both experiences have been excellent! We went on the 3-day cruise to Nassau and Castaway Cay. Embarkation was very smooth and being a Castaway Cay club member, we were able ... Read more

When we got to our room we found that one of the wave phones was broken. Called maintenance, they could not care less. As opposed to having someone fix the issue, I was asked to bring it to guest services and have it checked out. The sit ... Read more

This was our first time cruising so we did not know what to expect! Overall a great cruise! I never felt any sea sickness or motion. We were on deck 6 and it was a perfect floor and in the middle. Getting on the ship was an easy process ... Read more

Disney knows what they're doing! My husband and I cruised with our three older kids (20, 17, & 13 yr old) and all of us had a great time. We booked two adjoining rooms which I highly recommend if traveling with 5 unless your kids are ... Read more

This was my second Disney cruise this year and I must say it is awesome. I guess when I become a cruise veteran and go on my share of newer boats I will be able to compare better, but for now when you hear the horns go off singing ... Read more

I have noticed that people like to complain just to complain. And most of the time their complaints are caused by failure to research. Now on to my review. This was our first cruise and it did not disappoint. There were just 3 minor ... Read more

Just an average cruise and not any better than our three previous carnival cruises. The extra money you pay to take a Disney cruise is for the included soft drinks and some Disney characters throughout the ship. We spent mothers day (the ... Read more
