If you like long line ups you will love the embarkation and disembarkation process for the Disney cruises. We have taken many cruises and our experience with Disney was the worst. The advantages of the cruise are the many activities for kids: water sports, beach activities, mini-golf, shows, music etc. Also, the staff are very good with children. But the negatives are substantial. The ship was very crowded and line-ups were common for many activities. Because of the number of people the ship was noisy and somewhat chaotic. Also, the dining was a problem. The only dining time that we could get was 8:15----far too late for small children. On the first 3 nights there were at least other options. But on the last night we were told that the staff had to clean the ship for the next group of people----interesting that the ship is being run for their convenience not the passengers---so the only other option was a hamburger place or a limited room service menu. The food was mediocre and I had stomach problems while on the ship, which miraculously disappeared when we got home. Would not recommend Disney Cruises
