Review summary

It was clear to me that Disney Cruises are for Adults with kids who want to be able to relax without the need to supervise them all the time. For them, I am sure this is great. For people without kids, the increased cost of Disney vs other cruises isnt worth it (IMO). The added cost of ridiculous Wifi ($90 for 1 GB), the fact that there inst a drink package, and the overall bland level of adult entertainment and activities make this a Cruiseline I will not take again. We will still to other companies.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Service in all three dining restaurants was very slow during 2nd seating, the worst night, it took 28 minutes to get a Diet Coke. Food wasnt as good as expected and some nights was flat out disappointing. Palo was amazing, I would highly recommend it. I did not enjoy Remy, and for the price was the largest disappointment of the cruise.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
If you dont like spending all day at the pool, or playing bingo, then there just wasn't a lot to do vs the other cruises we have done (Royal Caribbean and Norwegian).

Entertainment

4 out of 5
The entertainment was very geared at kids, which I get is due to it being a Disney Cruise. Even the Adult Only venues were very tame, but also very very short.

Service and Staff

4 out of 5
All parties on the ship were great (except the servers in the main dining rooms).

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Ship was very beautiful and always immaculately clean.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
The separate shower/Toilet was great to have in the bathoom. Room felt spacious and not cramped even though only 200 Sq Ft.

Ship tip

Definitely book Palo.

Ports of call

Tortola, British Virgin Islands

3 out of 5
Not much to do here, and leaving the port security area doesn't look the safest.

Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas

4 out of 5
It was better than Tortola, but still not much to do unless you want to walk a giant outdoor mall where every other store has a different name but sells the exact same thing.

Castaway Cay (Disney Private Island)

4 out of 5
Best of the ports, I am sure fantastic for kids. Island was clean and beautiful, but with 100+ heat index, makes it hard to enjoy.

Disembarkation

4 out of 5
Comparatively smooth and easy vs other Ports/Cruise experiences.
