Review summary

Not sure if I will do another cruise. Disney is the top rated -- great service and food, lots of kids though.

Embarkation

3 out of 5
It was easy. I didn't like how you have to go through airport security then cruise security. It was a hassle but I imagine all cruises are like this.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The food was excellent and plentiful. I am not a big eater so it seemed excessive to me. Also, for $250 per day per person, I think tips should be included.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
The onboard activities were fine. Meeting the disney characters and baby race were the highlights!

Entertainment

5 out of 5
All the productions were awesome. Disney does it right.

Children's Programs

3 out of 5
My almost 4 year old seemed to young for the kids program, so we only did open houses. We did not want to put the 2 year old in daycare (fee charged) so she was with us the whole time. It was hard to fit in good naps, and they were usually tired and cranky at dinner.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
I was pleasantly surprised how great the staff was. I liked the rotational dining.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Disney has a lot of people cleaning constantly.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
It was very clean, bed was very comfortable and prepared for us each night by the steward. It was small though for a family of 4.

Ship tip

Be ready to jump right in! I would wait til the kids are school aged to take them -- I think it would be very fun for this age group.

Ports of call

Castaway Cay (Disney Private Island)

4 out of 5
Seemed fine. I only got of the ship for my sister's wedding.

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
Very quick -- I was pleasantly surprised.
