A Magical Cruise Experience
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Port Canaveral (Orlando)
The State rooms were fine and we choose one with a private verandah to get up early and watch the ship sailing into port. The assigned themed dining experiences were wonderful and the food was excellent every night. The breakfast choices were buffet or full sit down choices. Cabanas, the buffet on the 11th deck, was always stocked with the widest variety of foods that anyone could possibly want. Also, there is a free soft drink bar and ice cream bar available 24 hours a day. Just as an aside, there is plenty to do on this ship for adults only. There is a dedicated "adults only" pool, nightclubs, and two first class adults only dining experiences. Remy, which is a $75 up charge, is the most elegant dining on board. Palo, an Italian themed up scale adult only restaurant is available but we did not dine there during our cruise.
Our ship docked in Costa Maya, a town about 60 miles south of Cozumel. There is an area right where the ship docks that you could spend several hours in no problem but I recommend you take a cab to the Tropicante to lounge on their beach and eat their excellent food. A full one hour massage is only $25. The owner, an American named Steve, is an incredible host and will give you a shot of some Tequila produced in Mexico that is available only in Mexico that is some of the finest Tequila I have ever sampled.
There are a wide variety of shore excursions available at every port. Finally, the service from all on board personnel was as good as it gets. The Disney Cruise line is everything that you would expect of a Disney magical experience. Less
Cabin review: Oceanview with Private Verandah8152
I had an adjoining cabin which I roomed in by myself. The bed was very comfortable. There are TWO bathroom areas. One has a very nice size shower and vanity. The other has a vanity and the toilet. I found this State room to be beautifully decorated with a desk area and a nice couch sitting area. These State rooms are much superior to any I have stayed in on previous cruise lines. There is plenty of drawers and closet space to hang clothes. The State room is also very quiet with no noise "bleed" from the hallway or other State rooms. I found the Disney Fantasy and Disney Dream State rooms to be a great value for your money.
