Traveled with children

My wife and I are frequent Holland America cruisers and have sailed Princess during out honeymoon in Bora Bora. By all means, we are seasoned travelers. Disney cruise was never something I would have picked however having a 2 year old daughter, we had to try it out. We received a $200 on-board credit.

What surprised me the most was the staff and service that they provided. It was beyond exceptional. All the staff on the ship were wonderful except for a handful of experience however it didn't deter me from providing a 5 star rating for their services. Our server Roston and Ronald who took care of our cabin was really great. On the first night of our journey, my daughter fell asleep in the middle of dinner service. I then picked her up and carried her so she can sleep on my shoulder. I was surprised when Roston who brought my entree which was the prime rib, went ahead and started to cut my steak into bite sized piece so I can easily just fork it. He was aware of everyone's situation and provided a customized service. Truly wonderful. Ronald always provided a smile, ensured that our cabin was always clean and provided assistance immediately when we need him.

Entertainment was a major advantage over the other cruise lines, the Broadway-style productions ensured that both Adults and kids are entertained and will enjoy the show. Watching them nightly was truly a highlight and a nice way to end the day from a tiring day from excursions.

Cabin Review

Standard Inside Stateroom

Cabin 11A

The room was very close to mid-ship elevator which was a nice treat however it is very busy especially pre/post shows. The motion was very minimal due to its location and being on the 7th deck, walking up to the 9th deck was a breeze and walking down for dinner was also an easy feat.

Lights from the hall may bother you as it will shine through the door's sides and bottom gaps when it's time to sleep at night.

Sound wise, it is quiet & no issues for us.
