Embarkation

5 out of 5
From the staff to the, ship and than the weather all was perfect.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Great variety of food. I am only giving it 4 stars because we were given the late sitting for our evening meal and with young kids 8:15 pm is not good when you have a fun filled day. Then when we did make it to one night we were continuously asked where were you last night. On the last day at breakfast we were almost ignored, I feel because we did not make it to the two out of 3 evening meals.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
Again I am only going to give this 4 stars, our boys were ages 7 and 11. The 7 year old had a grand time, in the pool, the play center. Our 11 year old was not so much impressed with the boat, the activity center that was geared to his age was not at all what is was made out to be, the pool was way to small and the only activity was the basketball and again it was over come with either older kids or much younger.

Entertainment

The kids enjoyed the pool until it closed and then by the time we ate it was time to call it a night.

Children's Programs

Please see the above rating under the Onboard Activities.

Service and Staff

4 out of 5
Our room steward was defiantly a 5+ star!!! Our room was clean, clean, clean and she was always there to remind us of what we needed to take with us when leaving the ship, always smiling and happy. Waiters, I am giving only 4 because I did not appreciate constantly being asked where we were when we did not make our 8:15 late sitting, life happens and they should realize some people can't eat that late in the evening.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
5 stars to the cleanliness and maintenance of the ship. I am only giving the 4 stars because if you were at one end of the ship you had to walk all the way to mid ship to get something to drink, i.e. water. When you spent the day walking and playing the last thing you want to do is to walk more to just get a cold glass of water. Would be nice to have fresh cold water to drink closer to the end staterooms.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
For those who are first timers remember the staterooms are not big, but they are very comfortable and provide you will all you need. I loved the Balcony, defiantly would get a cabin with balcony again.

Ship tip

Be ready to have fun and relax they really do take care of you.

Ports of call

Port Canaveral, Florida

5 out of 5
We boarded at this port, it was very clean and easy to get around.

Nassau, Bahamas

5 out of 5
We went spent the extra money and spent the Day at Atlantis, we loved it.

Castaway Cay (Disney Private Island)

5 out of 5
This was great, we did not take the shuttle train to the beach as we thought the walk and taking in the beauty would be great. Here is the but half way their my knee gave out had to stop a couple times, so the walk was long. But I would really recommended it, it gives you the opportunity to view all the island and surrounding area. Was disappointed though on the cost to do the extra excursions so we spent our time playing at the beach.

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
It was very organized and easy to get off the ship, the security people were a bit grumpy but that did not have anything to do with the Disney crew or staff.
