Great first Disney cruise

Sail Date: April 25, 2016

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Balcony

We just finished our first Disney cruise and we can't wait to schedule another one.  The ship was beautiful.  Service was excellent and the kids had plenty to keep them occupied and having fun.  We had an added bonus because some Disney TV personalities were on board filming.  My daughter was able to meet one of her favorite Disney stars.

Cabin / Stateroom
Our family of four never felt cramped. The room had separate shower and toilet rooms so multiple people could get ready at once. Kids loved the bunk bed and going on the veranda. The veranda was also handy to dry our wet bathing suits.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Ship Quality
There were three other cruise ships docked at Nassau and the Disney ship was so much nicer than the others from big name companies.
Destinations and Excursions
Castaway Cay was great and the snorkeling excursion was fabulous. However, Nassau wasn't that great. We would probably stay on ship next time unless we found an excursion that we couldn't pass up. There is plenty for the kids to enjoy onboard without the crowd.
Onboard Activities
Children's Programs
Oceaneer's Club was great. They even came to the second seating dining to pick up the kids so the parents could relax and the kids could have their own fun. My kids liked not having to stay in the dining room the entire time.
My kids enjoyed seeing Zootopia, Star Wars and The Jungle Book (2016) in the big theater. The deck parties and fireworks were tons of fun, too. My son especially liked dressing up like a pirate for pirate deck party.
Service and Staff
Food and Dining


Bring bottled water and snacks for the movies and shows if you can because buying it on ship adds up.
