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 ...

You can't out-Disney Disney, but you can cruise better

We chose a Disney cruise because we've never done one (Disney) and there were some sailings out of NYC which saves us a flight. To review a Disney cruise, I have to break it into two pieces: a) Disney and b) Cruise. For the Disney part, it was potential 24/7 Disney immersion. If you love Disney, this will press all the buttons. Ongoing character meet-and-greet, Marvel day-at-sea, a day at ...

Lots of fun but aging, poorly configured ship, dangerous disembarkation process

This was our third Disney cruise, the second time on the Magic. The Magic and the Wonder are sister ships, nearly 20 years old. The Fantasy and the Dream are larger, more modern in every way, and only 5 years old. After cruising on the newer Fantasy, and now back again on the older Magic, the positive factors of the newer Fantasy/Dream just scream at me - the whole time this cruise on the older ...

With a 5 year old we thought it was time to try a Disney Cruise. The cruise itself was good, it just wasn't any better than Carnival, Royal Caribbean or Norwegian. For triple the price I think we just expected more than normal. The food in the dining areas was amazing, with larger portions than any of the other cruises we have been on. The alternative foods available the rest of time it was just ...

We chose this cruise because we had heard so many good things about this cruise. We were 3 cousins traveling with a disabled adult in a scooter. Exiting the boat was a nightmare for a disabled adult. Everyone was lined up on the third floor cattle car style ready to leave. After several phone calls to guest relations we were told that his rental scooter was to be left in his room and ...

We just returned from a 5 night cruise on the Disney Magic out of New York, calling on Bar Harbor Maine and St. John New Brunswick. Many of the features that attract us to Disney remain - the amazing dining room staff and cabin stewards, the entertainment (many levels above other lines) and the attention to detail. However, we were quite disappointed to experience several areas where service ...

This was a specialty cruise put on for Turner Classic Movies with Sixthman as intermediary. Embarkation and Disembarkation went smoothly. I was so excited knowing that not only would there be some great classic movie screenings, being a DISNEY ship they would go the extra mile with service and quality - if the parks were any indication. Turner Classic Movies "undisneyfied" the ship to go with the ...
