Nice destination, but the Disney Experience is over rated and over priced!

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

2 out of 5
The restaurants were nice and the servers were amazing! But the food lacked variety and flavor. Most of the drinks that came from the bar were hot and they served me a drink in broken glass.

Onboard Activities

1 out of 5
Activities did not cater to the whole family. Teen activiti s were minimal to none and the activities only carer d to certain cultures.

The music was horrible other than the typical Disney songs. The entertainment was also only cater f towards a particular group of people.

Children's Programs

3 out of 5
My children enjoyed the clubs. But the nursery is a scam. They don't disclose that you have to pay for the nursery even though you have to pay for infants.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The servers were amazing other than that the rest of the staff was far from magical.

Cabin was clean but bathroom smelled like pee.

Ship tip

Other cruises cost half the price and are better. Unless you want to try Disney, I wouldn't spend the extra money.
