After many years we took the family on a Disney Cruise and current will be the first and last one taken. I do not understand the hype and blind following DCL has. We are fans of the parks and hotels, annual pass holders, but it seems like the Cruise Line just does not have the same standards as the parks.

While the ship is nice enough, the layout leave a lot to be desired. To start the main atrium is lacking, with a grand staircase that is closed most of the sailing for photo ops with characters. Hallways are very narrow, with Rascals parked blocking most walkways. A highlight of cruising for our children is glass elevators, however the ship only has 2 and they only have 3 decks to see anything other than paintings.

The pools are small, and when I say small, think backyard small above ground size. While other lines have large pools these were small, shallow and lifeguards continually cleared them. The pool deck was extremely hot, enough to burn your feet in the sun. and the Pool Deck Screen was so loud you could not speak, it was more like being at a sporting event then a pool deck.

Castaway Cay

Major Letdown, they should take a page out of NCL or RCCL On how to do a private port.
