DCL Cruise

In response to review, CrusinTim says ...

So you have been on 4 - 6 cruises and NEVER knew that Disney was focused on the kids? did you do any research prior to booking? If you did, you would have realized it is all about the kids when it comes to Disney cruise lines (hence, no casino). And as for the upselling for spa products, that happens with every cruise line that has a spa. You don't have to buy anything, you know that as well right?

We have not cruised with DCL but it's because the Disney brand was built upon kids and we try to select cruises specifically with as few minors as possible. I'm not sure I could keep a straight face and say I didn't realize that anything to do with the Disney brand was oriented toward kids.

PS: All spas up-sell products... it's one reason I've slowed down on spa treatments. . . I go to relax, not to fend off a sales pitch.

Disney cruise are made for those with kids... no kids, go on another line. As far as spa stuff is concerned, We have bought the Elermis products since our first cruise and when we are not on board a ship we order on-line for some items.

Kids can come in any age. ‚ I have friends that are Disney Freeks, ‚ they are 40 to 60 years old. ‚ They go to Disneyland just for dinner and 1 ride (they have season passes). ‚ All cruise lines cater to different demographics. ‚ A bit of research can do wonders to make for a great vacation.

We have‚ heard great things about DCL from friends who have cruised with them many times... but it's our choice not to cruise Disney. dvsdog76, you are‚ spot on.

People move on my comments are my opinion as a review. I didn't ask for a conversation about my review.‚

Don't take it personally, we all are entitled to our opinions and to share thoughts and experiences. This is a discussion forum. I'm not sure what you expected.

Disney is meant for kids - young and young at heart. The fact that it is Disney should have tipped you off to the cruise theme.
