Review summary

 Our waitstaff and room steward were excellent! The rest of the Disney Staff  were fair to poor. There was inadequate supervision of children on the waterslide.  Fellow passengers were obnoxious, taking deck chairs  that had our things on them while we were supervising children in the pool, or taking them to the bathroom, or getting them something to eat.   There late night banquet was nothing more than being served cafeteria style the same type of food we were served for lunch daily.   The screws fell way short of my expectations from what I have experienced on Royal Caribbean cruises in the past. Disney cruises are expensive,     And they never have sale prices for their cruises.   This is my first and last Disney cruise with my grandchildren  as my grandsons reply to the question what was your most favorite part of the cruise? His reply was being on a big ship! Not the characters that the Waterslide--just being on a big ship!  For $9000.00 for three adults and two children under the ago of 4 I expected more from Disney!  I will sail Royal Caribbean any day versus Disney!

Very nice with the veranda (balcony) and our room steward, Weldon did a fantastic job of keeping our room clean and orderly!

Ship tip

Don't have high expectations so you won't be disappMy expectations were high after all the positive hype I heard from reservation personnel (4 different people) when I was dealing with them about various matters before the cruise. Apparently, Disney must be the only cruise Lines they have sailed.
