We are not new to cruising but this was our first Disney Cruise. We spent the pre cruise night at the Marriott in the Orlando Airport - what a great start to our vacation. We took the Disney Bus to the ship. An ideal solution as they show a film on what to expect - kept the Grandson mesmerized. We were a group of 7 and boarding was organized and shortly after arriving at the port we were on the ship and having lunch at the buffet.
The ship was beautiful and immaculate as were the cabins. We loved having the two bathrooms (only one with a toilet) so we could both get ready at the same time. Disney sure knows how to do things perfectly. Dining experience was great. We loved moving to different dining rooms and having our wait staff go with us. The shows were great and our four year old grandson loved the children's club and sometimes he didn't want to leave. We enjoyed the entertainment - first class and the cruise director was wonderful.
This was a perfect cabin - right near the midship elevators and stairs and yet we never heard any noise from them. We were on the 10th. floor below one of the grills and late at night I could hear them cleaning and moving things around from above. For that reason and only that reason we have booked on a different deck for our next cruise. It is always quieter to have a cabin between two decks of nothing but cabins. The cabin had ample storage, wonderful balcony and was immaculate.
Disembarkation was a breeze and we once again hopped on a Disney bus for our transfer to the airport. Did we love it - Oh Yes, so much so that we are booked again for this year - and taking our 12 year old granddaughter for her first ever cruise!
