This being our third Disney Cruise and our second on board the Dream, we knew the type of excellent service to expect. Embarkation day is usually a long time on waiting for our bags and waiting at cabanas, but this time we found out that ... Read more

Hi, I actually was very disappointed on my cruise trip. The ship was nothing I had imagine, it was a small and old cruise. I guess it's my fault for not doing the research but this is not what I had in mind. The service was great though, ... Read more

Our grandchildren are 5 and 8, and so we decided if we were ever going to do a Disney cruise we'd better go while the kids were young enough to really enjoy it. We bit the bullet and paid more for a 3 night Disney Bahamas cruise than we ... Read more

First, I want to commend Andy (from Germany) and Michelle (from UK) on impeccable service and hospitality as the concierge hosts. They give everything of themselves every day and are great with children and guests and this is NOT a ... Read more

DREAM CRUISE FOR THE FAMILY As a first time cruiser, I didn’t really know what to expect during our 3-night Bahamas cruise on the Disney Dream. We had done lots of online research and had an excellent travel agent, but the actual ... Read more

I'll start by saying that the overall cruise experience was great. Disney does a great job keeping the sail organized from check-in to departure and all points in between. The amenities for the kids is great from the kids club to the ... Read more

We had such a great time on this cruise. We felt like we were in a brochure for a great family vacation! It was our first cruise since having kids, and our 5 and 7 year old sons really enjoyed it - they never asked to use their iPads ... Read more

Cruised with Celebrity and Royal Caribbean before, and heard so many good things about Disney, that we we had high expectations. You don't have that wow feeling when you board or tour the ship. It is very congested on the pool ... Read more

First cruise (with husband & 8 year old son). The size of the ship was perfect. Big enough to explore but small enough to quickly get to anywhere we needed to go. Very quick tendering in Grand Cayman and embarkation and disembarkation ... Read more

The best part of the cruise was our 11 yo daughter had a blast in the tween area ("The Edge"). The rest of it was good, but not great. It was Disney, so of course it was very sanitized and controlled which was mostly a good ... Read more

Let me start off by saying that for what this vacation was targeted for, it was good. It was targeted for children and in that regard, it was a pretty good cruise. This was intended for the kids, not for the adults. This was ... Read more

We waited for two years to take this cruise and alas it was not EVERYTHING that it was cracked up to be. I am a firm believer that great customer service is what makes a very memorable experience. We expected "Disney" level ... Read more

Arrival: ship is docked away from Old San Juan. Did not like that you could not just jump off and tour the town like other cruise lines. Needed a taxi for sure! Computers were slow and lines were long. Glad we went snorkeling and ... Read more

This is our first Disney cruise and at first I was a little hesitant that it was worth the money. We traveled with a 4-year-old and my wife's mother. We had inside stateroom 7001. The only drawback I can say from the trip was our boarding ... Read more
