This was our 11th Disney cruise and first on the Wish, and it will be our last. The ship's design is so awkward with smaller general areas and more crowding when people gather. The elevator situation was horrendous with only fore and aft elevators and only 2 elevators which went all the way up to Decks 12&13. Too many stairs for my mobility impaired husband and the only option was to take elevators. Can't walk from the front of the ship to the back as each deck dead-ends with no staircases in site to be able to navigate around. Restaurants are CROWDED with lots of tables smashed against each other and we declined dinner one night in 1923 as my husband refused to "scooch" around chairs and people while trying to walk with his cane. Arendelle restaurant was just OK, because we really don't prefer a dinner show. Marceline Market buffet, same situation with narrow walkways trying to push too many people through and open tables very difficult to find.

Theming was beautiful but did not mitigate the cons mentioned above.The themed lounges on the Wish did not really peak our interest and the specialty drinks were over priced. Adults only area was poorly designed and not conducive to spending a lot of time there. Not enough lounge chairs in the shade.

Crew members were the only saving grace on this voyage and our servers were fabulous. If you want to take a Disney cruise, I suggest the original ships which are far superior in design to the Wish.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Family Oceanview Stateroom with Verandah

Nicely decorated and comfortable. No issue with the cabin whatsoever. Still love the split baths on the Disney ships.
