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. ...

Good until end

I travelled with two children 5 and 6. Accessibility to characters was great! We waited several hours to onboard ship which was difficult for kids, but we did get to meet characters. The ship was very clean. ...

Everything WONDER-FUL except for the food quality and dining options.

The Disney Wonder is indeed wonderful except in one area: Dining. Both the food quality and the dining options were substandard. When I worked at Disneyland for 3 years we were told that high menu prices are ...

Terrible in comparison to the Disney Fantasy

We just returned from our family cruise this week on the Disney Magic. Adding insult to injury, I was informed by one of Disney's staff members that this is the last trip for the Disney Magic until it gets entirely ...

A $2,000 for the price of $5,000

I am a Disney fanatic, so I had great expectations for this cruise with my family. Unfortunately my experience was poor, nothing magical about the Disney Cruise. First the good things: Shows were the best I've ...

Overcrowded, small and old cruise

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 ...

Not very magical

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 ...

5th Disney cruise; would not do this again.

Disney does a lot of things right, which is why they cost a significant amount more than other cruise lines. This one however, was a bust. It was partially our fault for thinking that just because a room cost $4K it ...

Disney Cruise in need of some Magic

First off let me say I love Disney. We are premium passholders so we thought if we love the parks so much we should try a cruise so I called their 800 number asked some questions. Told the guy I talked to that I ...

Cruise for kids... that are girls... under 10

Pros: Great food. Wonderful gym, not big enough to do step, but plenty of treadmills, free weights, ellipticals, bikes, and more with oranges and apples right by the one water fountain. Inside the changing room is a ...
