Review summary

Be sure to pack water shoes. The ocean at Cozumel and Castaway Cay are full of shells and rocks and hurt if you are barefooted. The Royal Court Tea is a must for a little princesses. It is pricey, but it's worth it. The cost for a child is 210.00 but she will get lots of gifts. They do charge for adults (65.00) and all you get is tea and snacks, so I think that is way too much for the adults. I think one accompanying adult should be free. I was very impressed with the prices of the merchandise in the stores and the specialty shops. Most cruise lines overcharge for items bought on the ship, but Disney was very reasonable. Over all, the cruise was outstanding!

Food and Dining

Overall, the food was really good. There were some dishes in the main dining rooms that were a little bland. The buffet was always good and had a variety of selections. Fountain drinks are included unlike other cruise ships.

I bought the package where I got all the photos on a USB. A little pricey, but worth it. You don't have to worry about choosing photos and paying per photo.

Senses Salons

A little pricey and they do try to sell their products after your treatment.

Quiet Cove Adult Pool

Good place to go when you want to get away from the noise.

Mickey's Pool

A little crowded, but a good spot for non-swimming children.

AquaDuck

Ship tip

Check with guest services about activities. Some activities weren't always listed on their app or the daily sheet that is given. I signed my daughter up for two character greetings that weren't listed and those were things you needed tickets for.

Least favorite of the ports. The port itself is fine with lots of shops but only one place to eat that wasn't an American chain restaurant. Venturing out into the city alone is not advised. We didn't have a ton of time so we didn't book an excursion, but if you book an excursion then you would be fine.

Castaway Cay (Disney Private Island)

4 out of 5
It's beautiful but it is a little crowded with limited chairs with umbrellas. They do offer cabanas for an additional cost that looked really nice. If you want to sign up to do activities while on the island, do it quickly and don't wait until the day of.
