We are Gold status cruisers with Disney and have been on all 4 ships. The pre-cruise vaccination and online registration requirements were simple. Upon port arrival, we were assisted with a pre-boarding Covid test. Then we were directed to wait in our vehicle in the parking garage until test results were available, which was about 45 minutes. We had to monitor our email for the results to be sent to us, then we had to log in to obtain the results. The ship was sailing at 40% capacity and it was ideal. We never experienced any lengthy lines or crowds. The staff was incredible and the service was wonderful. The ship and the stateroom were kept very clean and sanitized. We ate in Remy and Palo and the upcharge was well worth it. We ate breakfast in Cabanas once, and the rest of the meals in Animator's Palette and Royal Palace. The food was very good. We attended a few adult themed optional classes in juicing, chocolate and liquor pairing and mixology. We enjoyed the classes. The entertainment on the ship consisted of repeat movies, games, a Disney theater production and a violinist playing along with prerecorded music. As other reviewer's have said, there wasn't a magician or a comedienne. The entertainment was terribly lacking and rather boring. I went to the spa twice and enjoyed the services. Of course, they don't sell the open spa pass like they used to, but will sell you about a 2 hour time slot for a ridiculous amount of money. So, I passed on being able to use the spa facilities. We didn't exit the ship in either Nassau or Castaway Cay because we just weren't comfortable being around crowds of people who were not wearing masks outdoors. We occupied room 9672, an aft cabin with a large verandah and were so happy that we had a private verandah large enough to hold the 3 of us, with 2 loungers, two chairs and a small table. We had beautiful weather so hanging out on the verandah with the breathtaking views was a great alternative to exiting the ship in port. A great cruise, but I rated it 4 stars not 5 because Disney should add more entertainment options.
