Got to see a stingray

This was my first cruise so I had nothing to compare it to except what others had told me. Communication aboard ship was lacking for a first time cruiser. If there was an orientation we didn't see it advertised. ...

Beautiful ship, not enough staff

This was my first cruise, and I chose this one because of the ship. It's huge and offers a lot of activities. The ship is beautiful - I recommend taking the all-access pass behind-the-scenes tour to learn about how ...

First and last Disney Cruise. So happy to get out of the nightmare.

We picked Disney Cruise mainly because of the focus on younger kids. Based on all the reviews I've read this is supposed to be the best cruise for kids (with no casino and has many kids focused activities such as ...
