Review summary

This is a great family cruise. So much to do. Just not enough time to get it all done. Love Disney service. Disney's private island is worth the entire trip.

Embarkation

5 out of 5
We walked right into terminal. Fast line for check in. Walked onto ship and straight to cabin. Ship had been empty of passengers for a week due to hurricane Irma.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
We used the rotating main dinning rooms for dinner. Excellent service and food. No specialty restaurant for us. Used buffet for breakfast only. Selection was ok.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
Aquaduck best tube slide. It goes around the ship so fun. Smaller slide for kids. Pools were nice. Only complaint was they were covered a few nights for deck parties.

Wonderful service called by name and kids were treated like Royalty.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Ship was in excellent shape. They were constantly doing maintenance on the ship.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Cabin was very nice. 4 beds. One upper bunk and couch made into bed. Plenty of storage space under bed. Balcony was huge. 4 lounge chairs and table with room to walk around. It was near the kids area.

Ship tip

3 days was not enough time for the Halloween stuff along with Pirate night and all the regular Disney ship activities.

My husband and son age 7 took a taxi to Fort Montagu to tour Fort and swim. They had no problems cost $40 for taxi.

Castaway Cay (Disney Private Island)

5 out of 5
Best Island I have even been. Ship docks at Port no tenders. Clean beach, gorgeous water, and plenty of umbrellas. Lunch provided on the island with complementary ice cream and sodas.

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
Walked off, through customs, porter help with bags to car. Perfect experience.
