We sailed the 4 night itenarary on Sunday August 21, during which time Hurricane Irene was winding her way up to the Bahamas area. Despite this, we were lucky and she didnt impact our cruise or our itenarary in the least. Tip -- always get travel insurance! We were glad we got it even though we didnt need to use it.
The ship is very elegant and grand. It is probably the best looking ship sailing the Carribbean waters right now. Yes, there are a lot of kids, but if this scares you off from the beginning, Dont go. No need to know this, go on the cruise and then complain anyway like some do.
The food was good (some dishes were far better than others), the service was good, the entertainment was Disneyish but very fun for all ages. Kids clubs were awesome and they had a great system for figuring out where your kids were at all times through their Mickey bands (ie, a GPS really for your kids). The adult entertainment and lounges were very good too.
Dining was very good -- my daughter has a food allergy and everyone was always very aware and accomodating to our needs.
The aquaduck is fun -- the lines can be long during sea days and also peak times during the day. But, it is a must do.
Captain Henry kept us updated with all the Hurricane details each day. The day we were docked in Castaway Cay, they were evacuating the residents to our ship as we departed since Irene was due to make landfall there less than 48 hours later.
We are looking forward to sailing her sister ship, the Fantasy next year. If you love Disney, you wont be disappointed. She is a beautiful ship.
