Fun but fog ruined the first day

Amazing cruise, but kids club is overcrowded and most of the activities aren’t suited for 11 and 12 year olds. I don’t understand why they would do the same activities as the 3 year olds on the ship. The main ...

Overall good experience

In general I think Disney does a terrific job of embarkation and disembarkation compared to other cruise lines I’ve experienced. There is a line to stand in to get your initial embarkation “ticket”, and the ...

Not my favorite Disney Trip but had a wonderful time!

We chose this itinerary because it fit within the kids' school vacation so it wasn't necessarily chosen due to the itinerary. We don't generally enjoy stopping in Nassau so we treated it as an "at sea" day and ...

This is the 8th Disney cruise that the family has gone on. We’ve done 7 consecutive years around President’s Day weekend, and one Alaskan cruise. It’s difficult for me to assess whether or not the number of ...

Overpriced Carnival cruise for children

My 3 year old had the time of her life, but I was disappointed. The Disney Oceaneer club for kids was fantastic and the nursery was also good. The adult entertainment and activities were awful. The buffet was better ...

Skip the spa!! Worst massage I’ve ever had.

This was our 3rd Merrytime cruise, as cruising over Christmas has become our tradition, however this year might be our last. The quality of DCL is clearly slipping. The Magic is dated, showing many signs of wear ...

Not good for [stereotypical] boys

We went on this cruise with my then 5 year old and 3 year old sons. Although they aren't that into Disney specifically, we figured they'd enjoy the kids activities and we'd get some much needed adult time away. ...
