The Disney Wish is beautiful. The artwork, decor and styling was typical Disney to set a theme. Took a tour of the ship to appreciate the details they included. If you have children who enjoy Disney characters and movies, they would love the number of character meet and greets and separate areas just for kids. As to adults, the ship has challenges. They have multiple bars tucked in various corners that do not have large seating. They are also difficult to find. You really need the map on the app they provide. Activities during the day are limited for adults and the few alcohol and wine tastings had a limited number so they filled up quickly.

The food is a major challenge as each dining was very cramped. In 1923 the space between the back of my chair and the next table was so close, that waiters rushing bumped into my chair every 5 minutes making it uncomfortable. In the Marvel dining room, they served our table so late that they gave us the dessert menu when we received the entrees. The Spider-Man character whisked by our table since we were still eating. We had the first dinner seating. Character interaction was minimal at other tables. Arendelle dining room was so packed that seeing the stage in the center was difficult especially the characters had to constantly swirl around to face each section of the audience. It was not well thought out and appeared chaotic for the poor servers. Menu was hit and miss with lots of misses. You had no option but to go to your assigned dining since no other dining was open from 6 PM to 10 PM other than room service. We did not care to go to pirates night as the menu was un-inspired. We ate early at the Cantina and pizza location by the pool before it closed at 6 PM. The tacos were delicious. Marceline had a nice buffet but again the walkway was too small as people were waiting for food and walking both directions so constantly bumping into each other. It did have plenty of seating, even on sea days.

Entertainment was well done in the evening and typical Disney but there were limited musical venues otherwise. The Bayou was a pretty bar in the middle of two walkways so people talking in the walkways was distracting and again limited seating.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom

Cabin was a balcony cabin which had lots of storage and worked for two people. Just wish they gave you more hangers. The split bathrooms were nice but each had limited floor space so changing in bathrooms does not work. They were well appointed and cabin steward was great.

Port Reviews

Castaway Cay

Port was very nice with beautiful beaches. Food was disappointing. We ate in the adult section and found the hamburgers overcooked and salads bland. The chocolate chip cookies were delicious!
