I didn't choose this cruise, my wife did. Our kids are more Spongebob and Peppa Pig fans due to Paramount+ being free for the last three years, so this wasn't for them. My wife admitted that she wanted to pay 3x what Norwegian and 2x Royal Caribbean to get that "Disney Magical Experience."

It was anything but.

We are seasoned cruisers, as sad as that is to admit for a couple in their 30's, but we know what value is. Value is Norwegian when they first offered the unlimited drink package... without tips, as part of their "Get 4 Perks" promotion! Value is a 7 day cruise for two priced at $800. Value is MSC trying to get a foothold in America and pricing cruises at $39 a day. Disney was anything but value, and it was the $800 Carnival experience all over again, 15 years later.
