Disney is known for doing everything with excellence. I didn't recommend this one high for one reason alone ... I do not recommend a 3 night cruise for anyone with a large family. Disney did an amazing job as always and the cruise was great. There were just too many things to do in too tight space and it was overwhelming for the kids and the parents trying to keep up with them and keep them from getting trampled. 


The ship is beautiful and there really is something for everyone on this ship. If you travel without kids, Disney is still an amazing experience and a 3 night cruise would be a GREAT getaway for a couple with no kids. There are many areas on the ship and the private Island for adults only. 


Overall this was amazing.... just tough on larger families. This is not the cruise lines fault. If you are sailing with a larger family ... go for more nights :)

Some were done in spaces that were too tight for the amount of people that would show up for the event.

Ship Tip

Great for the whole family. Make sure if you have little ones that want to meet the Princesses that you get a ticket on the first day at the port adventures desk. this ensures that you get the best time and are able to get through the greeting time when it is convenient for you.
