Was a little disappointed with this cruise, not as great as expected. We were staying at the Beach Club at WDW, so we took the shuttle bus from there to the port. Very easy. We were with our children and two young grandsons. We had adjoining family staterooms with balconies. The rooms were very large and and nicely laid out, they slept five, the bathroom was great, two choices of shower heads and kept very clean. As a frequent cruiser, I felt the food was just okay. The portions seemed small to me, and for the price of this cruise, there was no Lobster night. The activities were mostly for girls. With the exception of Pirate Night. The early show was only 20 minutes, the later show and longer one was at 10:30, why so late?. We really did not go to any of the shows, The ship itself is gorgeous with great detail and a lot of nice lounges for adults, the restaurants were really beautiful. The only time I felt overwhelmed by children, was at the pool. Wall to wall children. But the adult only part of the ship was terrific. We did a day excursion to Atlantis which was great for the kids, they stayed at the beach and hubby and I went to the Casino. Did okay. Castaway Cay was terrific. We had a great day there and the BBQ was really good, Disney should build a hotel on that island. Disembarkation was a little annoying, only because if you had early seating for dinner, you had to have breakfast on the last morning at 6:45AM. Have never been on a cruise with such a requirement. Finding our luggage was very organized and Disney took us to the airport. I probably will not take another Disney cruise, it was not worth the money we paid for it.

Cabin Review

Cabin 6116
Great stateroom, roomy and great decor. Good location in the middle of the ship, but had a long walk to the elevators.
