Here are 10 Quick Things You need to know 1. This ship is over 20 years old and it shows. From rusty spots on the balconies to musty smells in the rooms, this ship is definitely showing it's age. 2. The dinner food is mediocre. It's served lukewarm because they're serving hundreds of people at once so chances are your food was waiting to be delivered to your table while they got all the dishes ready. 3. The Staff is amazing and they definitely take service to the next level. 4. Bring you're own camera for the character photos. The staff will use your camera and take one with the cruise photographer's camera. Their digital photos cost $250 for 20 photos. At such a ridiculous price it makes no sense to purchase their photos if you have a good camera. In fact this may justify getting a good camera if you want lots of pictures with characters and princesses. 5. If you have a stop at Walt Disney World link your tickets and book your FastPasses 6 months in advance if possible. 6. The character breakfasts and excursions book up early. You need to book those events the minute they become available. 7. You don't need to book character photo experiences because there will be an opportunity to take a photo with almost every character at some point and time as long as your willing to wait in line for 30mins to an hour. 8. Everything is billed to your credit card so no need to bring cash unless you are going to Disney World. Then bring all the cash you can, because that place is expensive. 9. Download the Disney Cruise App before you board. The cruise Wifi is overpriced and slow. They will give you 50MB free if you stop by Guest Services on the first day but that disappears quickly. You can see your 50MB just trickling away on their app even when you aren't doing anything. 10. The pools and hot tubs are small. The first day the family pool was full of kids and parents to the point where you could barely move. At the same time the adult pool had 3 people in it with room for 40 more. Read Less

First Disney Cruise, 3rd cruise overall, first time Concierge service, ship was in great shape since it's the 1st one to sail. Will be very hard if we sail again not to get Concierge service. Our Concierge team of Alina, Emannela and Nicky were fantastic, there for every need. Our Serving team of Hilash Harinath, Cornel Besoi and Dumitru Cabut were all great and finally our stateroom host Flore Mihai always had a smile on her face and helpful. As for the Cruise leaving N.Y. In Nov on Sat. was a little chilly didn't start to feel warmer till Monday. My step-daughter & granddaughter finally got to use the pool & hot tub by then. Tuesday we arrived at Castaway Cay which was beautiful, Temp was about 85 but windy so no feeding the stingrays, wind surfing and jet ski's, but still had a great time in the water. We also had a Cabana #12, very close to the restrooms and not too far from the food. Then Wed. on to WDW again very warm and very crowded (Magic Kingdom). Back on ship early, Thurs. was Pirate Night and show was very good including the fireworks, was surprised it wasn't moved inside because the sea was a little rough. Overall really nothing bad to say about the cruise at all. My family on the other hand was a different story. Never had breakfast other than in the cabin so it was boxed cereal and Danish etc. Went to Concierge Lounge a few times for coffee and finger sandwiches and desserts. Not to sound harsh but don't bring anyone who can't get around very well, needed me to hold on to even with a cane. Granddaughter had a great time but could never get off the phone and play games. She did join the tweens club and went there a few times and did say she had a good time why she didn't go more I don't know. Also don't bring someone who doesn't like crowds, our day at WDW was very crowded and warm. We arrived at WDW about 9:30 am, then went thru security which took way too long need more agents, so it was about 10am by the time we got into the park, by 1:30 our granddaughter was ready to leave are you kidding me (10 yrs old) Used our 3 V.I.P. passes in no time so only went on 3 rides, Haunted Mansion, Pirates and Splash Mountain, that's it so WDW was a waste. Never saw Epcot, Animal Kingdom or Hollywood Studios. Got to see the new movie "The Nutcracker" was ok not one of Disney's best. Never went to any shows, pretty much stayed in the cabin # 8534 which was very nice but at times heard people running on deck 9 so if you don't mind a little noise here and there then cabin is ok. Sat out on the Verandah only 2 - 3 times another waste and finally dinner, you have dinner at 3 different restaurants, well we went to each restaurant just 1 time each so the other nights we ate in our cabin. So overall for all the money spent it wasn't worth it. Would I go again, yes just with different people. Read Less

I think this must be my second review even though we are world cruisers, for years, and have sailed many different cruise lines. We have a lot of experience with all aspects of a cruise. I have cruised Disney once before to the Bahamas. My perspective is of an adult, and safety for the children. Arriving a day before the cruise at Quebec City, we found it quaint. (We had been there once before on an excursion with another cruise line). Our embarkation seemed to have gone smoothly, until i found that all my cruising info papers, med sheets, all the papers i bring with me were missing, and were lost somewhere between the port and the stateroom. I called the front desk, they didnt have them. Okay we can deal with that, there are always the originals to find on the computer. Although i didnt like my information out in public. The problem was they had no service to speak of and my husband after using his free 100 minutes, paid for 200 mins(I dont know why they dont go by Megabytes), and by the time he would get on, it had "used" up all the time he had. You couldnt sign off, and for some reason their antiquated system kept you on, if you didnt "officially" sign off. Luckily we were in a concierge room, (which we paid a lot more for) and our concierge had printed out our entire itinerary, and was excellent. All three concierge "cast members" seemed seasoned, and Disney schooled. We especially liked Andy. A major problem occured when we tried to sleep the first night. Our "special" concierge room was under the Cabana's outside buffet. It was oddly configured, possibly 2 staterooms put together to make a large suite with 2 full bathrooms, and a tiny closet. There was lots of draw space. BIG PROBLEM....I didnt sleep for the 1st night because there seemed to be no sound insulation above the master bedroom, and the outside buffet. Until late, the first night all we heard were shoes thumping and chairs screeching. My husband and I missed the first excursion, the following day....we were exhausted. By the way the room number was 8602. DO NOT CHOOSE THIS ROOM, if you want to sleep. This is the basis of any trip, not feeling like your dragging and are sleep deprived. After the first night i called the concierge to ask them what they could do. They said they couldnt control the people eating in the cabana. I had gone up to the cabana and evaluated the situation and found that if the could rope of or take away 2 tables right above us, that may help the situation. I gave each person working there including the "officer" $20.00 each and ask them to please remove or rope off the tables. They said they couldnt promise to do this. Second night, same thing. I called the concierge, who happily came to my door(2 females) and in a disney manor jumping and smiling told me how great i looked. After that went on for a while i asked them to come upstairs to see what i was talking about. The Cabana was roped off for that one night. After that i gave up. it was hit or miss whether i slept or not. On to excursions. They were not great, and somewhat boring. I spent most of this review on the stateroom, so i am not going to recap them, except to say, there was one dangerous part of an excursion where we asked if we wanted to walk over a dilapidated walking bridge. I thought disney wouldnt allow this if it was dangerous, so we embarked. The bridge was held together at certain parts with what seemed to be rotten fiber board. We had to tell children and others to watch and we turned around and got off the bridge. This was in Baie-Comeau. The only other bad experience with excursions, was when we returned to the ship and were delightfully welcomed with hot chocolate. It was a chilly day. The drink was so hot the first sip i took, i immediately had to spit out because it was scalding the inside of my mouth, and i wasnt about to swallow it. I angrily told the servers, who just looked at me, that they need to test the temperature on this, before serving it. The burn stayed with me until after NY, but under the circumstances of all else, it wasnt something continuously happening so I protested no further to the servers, who i am not sure understood English anyway. I should note also that while we on an excursion, our stateroom door was left propped open all day, and the Executive Hoosekeeper, mortified by this was so anxious to apologize(which i appreciated greatly). This only happened once. Good stuff: The entertainment during dinner, where your waiting service followed you to each venue, was excellent! Best part of the cruise. Manuel, was excellent, and gave service with a smile. Cant say enough about the wait service. He even did magic Palo, their upscale italian restaurant, had wonderful food, and our waiter, was a consummate disney actor who made the experience almost real. His name was Roberto, excellent. We had children of 4 different ages. I think they all enjoyed their clubs and especially their special dress ups, princess gathering, Royal Teas.....we scheduled them for every ago approrriate activity you could do on the ship. This is why we went on the cruise, for the children. So this is the thing....We do family cruises every few years, with up to 47 people. I am torn because i have reserved 12 rooms for a family cruise next December, to the Bahamas, and this cruise is in no way an adult cruise. It 99.9% for children, or adults who have younger children, or adults who would prefer to be a child. I am hoping i made the right decision. I am hoping the more than one bad experience i had on this cruise will not happen again. The last Bahama cruise i went on with Disney seemed awesome compared to what happened on this one Read Less
