You can't out-Disney Disney, but you can cruise better

We chose a Disney cruise because we've never done one (Disney) and there were some sailings out of NYC which saves us a flight. To review a Disney cruise, I have to break it into two pieces: a) Disney and b) ...

Disney Magic -NYC to Castaway Cay and WDW

We chose this cruise because: 1) It's Disney! and 2) the convenience of sailing from the NYC area. DCL does not disappoint when it comes to entertainment, friendliness, and making you feel welcome. The shows and ...

This was our third Disney cruise, the second time on the Magic. The Magic and the Wonder are sister ships, nearly 20 years old. The Fantasy and the Dream are larger, more modern in every way, and only 5 years old. ...

A must do for Disney fanatics... Definitely appropriate for children

Disney does an excellent job of entertainment. Disney shows were Broadway quality in both talent and production. Ship seemed a little too crowded for outdoor shows, and for family pool areas. Definitely liked ...

Disney runs low on Magic.

With a 5 year old we thought it was time to try a Disney Cruise. The cruise itself was good, it just wasn't any better than Carnival, Royal Caribbean or Norwegian. For triple the price I think we just expected more ...

Always a bit nervous to do DCL, as we love going to WDW and were afraid of Disney overload on their ships. Found the ship a good size with a load of 2,600 passengers. With two teenage children, we avoided most of ...

Everything you could possibly hope for from Disney

We traveled with our aunt who stayed in an adjacent room and by day two she made a comment that pretty much summed up Disney hospitality: "They think of everything." The ship itself, launched in 1998, is not one ...
