Review summary

I had an opportunity to take my 2 grandchildren ages 8 and 11 on a Disney Cruise. I met friends with their grandchildren ages 10 and 12.  We had outside veranda rooms and asked that the door between balconies be opened to be able  to visit each other easily.  The cruise was perfection, rooms, meals, staff, entertainment, cleanliness, club rooms for the children, etc.  

My only complaint was the photography.  We did get some lovely pictures, but I would have liked a formal on dress up night. We went to the office many times to make an appointment, it didn't seem to be staffed.  The lines were long and we had early dinner and could not wait.  They needed more photographers for the amount of passengers for pictures and candids to capture the joy on the kids faces as they enjoyed themselves.

I read a lot of blogs before the trip, Guest Services no longer holds items for character autographs.  Also, we could not buy stamps on Castaway Cay.  Stamps come from Guest Services.  I bought a package of post cards at the gift store, wrote them in our room and stamped them.  They can be posted from Castaway Cay even though the Post Office was never open while we were there.  I brought a power strip as recommended by many.  It was confiscated but there were plenty of plugs to charge devices.  The rooms had plenty of hooks, shelves, drawers, hangers, closet space, etc.

All in all, it was worth every cent I spent.  They are still talking about it and they've made wonderful memories that will last much longer than the cruise.
