We just got back a few days ago from our cruise and to be honest we had some hesitation about going just as Adults (our children were at their grandparents). We wanted to go on a cruise for our 8th anniversary (my wife's first, my 7th) and this was the only cruise available for the dates we needed and the port we wanted. The reviews were all amazing but for a few who claimed that this cruise was "NOT FOR ADULTS" They made it seem as if it would not be Romantic or enjoyable for Adults, HOW WRONG THEY WERE!!! We ate at the specialty restaurants all 3 nights, Palo and Remy, Palo being our favorite! Now my wife is a super picky eater and she RAVED about the quality of EVERY dish she ate including the dessert! The lady sitting in the table behind us had multiple food allergies and I heard the chef come out and speak with her and accommodate anything and everything she requested...when her food came out, I literally heard her gasp with excitement with each bite and then she said "Are there stars in my eyes, I have never been so happy with my food" I spoke to her after and she was so so pleased with everything as well. The entire cruise we stuck to the 18 and over adult only areas and had an absolute lovely (and romantic) time. DO NOT let the other reviews concern you about not being ADULT friendly....we only saw children (who were all having a great time) as we walked from place to place on the ship. There are PLENTY of places to go and enjoy yourself without having children around. We did the wine tasting and visiting all the adult only bars and pool areas. Last but not least, we visited Serendipity Bay (Disney's private Island) which was the ADULT only area of the Island and it was Marvelous! Peaceful, fun and they had a BBQ from 11:30am-2pm that was fantastic, amazing rib eye steak cooked right on the grill in front of you, they had burgers, bratwurst, hotdogs, chicken, mahi mahi, sides and salad...as well as ice cream....We had a fantastic time and my wife fell in love with cruising especially with Disney, I have been on Royal Caribbean, Norwegian and a few others and they were all very nice, Disney just does it better, their service and attention to detail is EXCEPTIONAL. Bravo Disney and again, please DO NOT be afraid to travel as Adults only, you will NOT be disappointed!

Amazing Cruise, Exceptional Dining & Service, Just my wife and I!

Our cabin was perfectly suited for us both and had a nice Verandah so we can walk out, sit and admire the waves...
