Disney Dream

April 2017 - 4 Night Bahamas (Port Canaveral Roundtrip) Cruise on Disney Dream

Amazing Again!

Fourth time on the Dream and the best yet! No comparison for a cruise with children with any other line. Everything amazing, from start to finish. Cannot say enough and cannot wait to take the grandchildren again.

Oosterdam

November 2016 - 7 Night Western Caribbean (Tampa Roundtrip) Cruise on Oosterdam

Wonderful Service!

Shipwas refurbished in April. The entertainment area was improved greatly with a wonderful Billboard Lounge with double piano entertainers. Also, the classical performances at the new Lincoln Center Stage were outstanding. A blues club was a nice addition to round out a variety of music. The casino is totally non smoking-great improvement! Negative quality of entertainment nightly on the Main Stage. Far surpassed by Royal Caribbean, Carnival, Princess, Celebrity, Disney, and Renaissance. That was the only ship disappointment all week.

Phone/tablet plugs in staterooms made charging very easy.

Food and service in all dining areas were amazing. Special Thankisgiving menu was a great addition. Burger and hot dog area needs a more efficient plan.

Easy on and off was also a great feature.

Allure of the Seas

September 2016 - 7 Night Eastern Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip) Cruise on Allure of the Seas

The Best!

Best of four Oasis class RC cruises I have taken. Food, service, and entertainment were great. Mama Mia cast was excellent. The four female leads were outstanding. Those who also performed in Blue Planet did a super job. These ships are easier to board and debark than those 1/3 their size.

Carnival Paradise

June 2016 - 5 Night Western Caribbean (Tampa Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Paradise

Great Value!

5th time on Paradise and still a great small ship for a short, reasonably priced trip. 30 years old and showing ware, but being renevated in January. Excellent entertainment, food, and service. Cruise director and assistant are excellent.And Tampa is an easy port to use. Also, the older ships have more shower room and closet space than the newer, larger ships.

Brilliance of the Seas

November 2015 - 5 Night Western Caribbean (Tampa Roundtrip) Cruise on Brilliance of the Seas

Great time for great value!

Plesantly surprised at how nice the Brilliance was for it's age. Ship, service, food, and entertainment all exceeded my expectation. Especially liked the Headliner Show, Captain's question and answer hour, Cruise Director, and Solarium. Another plus was the ease of embarking and debarking. Port of Tampa is an easy to use port, convenient from our home.

Oasis of the Seas

August 2015 - 7 Night Eastern Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip) Cruise on Oasis of the Seas

Carnival Paradise

July 2015 - 5 Night Western Caribbean (Tampa Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Paradise

Great older ship!

Fourth time on the Paradise and still a great little ship. Service, shows, and food very good. Extra plus for me is the convenience of the port to home. More cabin room and storage than newer ships. Starting to show age, but worth the value and positives. The dining room manager, Yusuf is the best from any ship or cruise line I have been on.

Disney Dream

May 2015 - 4 Night Bahamas (Port Canaveral Roundtrip) Cruise on Disney Dream

Amazing!

Disney does it right! Wonderful from start to finish. Activities, shows, dining, staff, and the Castaway Cay experience all are fantastic. This is the third time I have taken my granddaughters in the past four years on the Dream, and each time we debark, they want to know when they can go again. The kids club is so much fun, the four year old only ate with us one night because she enjoyed the club so much. Pricey, but worth it!
