Disney Cruises appears to be trying to attract an "older crowd", meaning older than 6 maybe, not sure of the definition. So we thought we'd try it. We have about 10 cruises under our collective adult belts.
Let's start with the plusses.
Food - Remarkably good relative to other cruises. In fact, we felt the food was better than the food on any cruise we have taken after 1990 (before that, different in those days of glory). Even the buffet was pretty tasty. Palo was actually on a par with land designer restaurants. The service in Palo was impeccable, like Capitol Grill or Ruth's Chris. Didn't try room service. Even snack bars had pretty good fast food EXCEPT pizza kiosk. That was dreadful. Several of our party dined in Parrot Cay. Bad news. The music/noise was ear splitting (see my comments about Disney noise later). Other dining rooms much better. Main deck had 24 hour coffee and soft drinks. Nice touch.
