  3. Disney Dream
My husband and I were invited by a group of friends to join them on a Disney cruise. After sailing many, many times on Carnival and RCI, we decided to give it a try because we've heard so many great things about how much more superior Disney is, even for an "Adult" vacation. Well, it was quite disappointing. The "Adult only" area is positioned right outside their concierge floor so kids are constantly floating through, crying, whining, doing what kids do. It's not the kids fault. It's Disney's for poor planning on ship design. The dining rooms are very loud (especially Animator.) Food is elegant, and service is wonderful, but don't expect a peaceful meal. Again, Disney = LOTS of loud, crying tired little kids. We even were able to experience a mother changing her baby on a dining table - LOVELY. In the evening, don't expect much entertainment for adults. The choices are few and far between. Disney should really make up for the fact they have no casinos. Maybe hire some comedians for the 3-4 day cruises, offer more trivia, bingo, ANYTHING. We rented a cabana on Castaway and the service was incredibly slow. Almost an hour to get a drink delivered. Unacceptable. Bottom line...if you are vacationing without children, I would not recommend Disney cruises to any adults.

Disney is NOT for adults!
