This was the best vaction I've ever experienced. Will be back next year on another Disney Cruise Line. My family enjoyed everthing on this trip from the meals thru entertainment. Ports was amazing and the staff is soooooo nice.
EVERYTHING was 100 % + .... Nothing could use ANY improvement! Would certainly recommend a Disney cruise to others. From top to bottom ("stem to stern") a Disney cruise is THE BEST!
This was a great cruise including all the excursions. Everything was amazingly clean, great service from everyone I encountered, and great food as expected. My biggest pet peeve is their photo package is $350. Otherwise specialty drinks where reasonably priced.
I paid for a shore excursion and when I arrived and checked into guest services there was no record of the transaction even though it had been taken out of my account. Who do I contact about a refund so that I can recoup the money that I had to pay to do the shore excursion through guest services on the ship?
The theme days provided great fun for kids of all ages. It would be nice if Disney could provide some adult bands for ballroom dancing. This would have been icing on the cake.
We had the deluxe family stateroom with balcony. This is an excellent stateroom, the shower is very good and there is a lot or room in the stateroom. The cruise was during spring break, so there were more kids the usual on the cruise, but this also meant that the adult areas were not as crowded as on some cruises.
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!
Cruise was amazing. Maybe a little less people would have made it perfect. Service was excellent. Could have had more food choices. Kids had an absolute blast and that is what matters. Star Wars day was cool but needed more character appearances.
We just cruised to the western Caribbean on the Disney Fantasy. My wife and I took our Mom's for their 80th birthdays, so no kids in our party. It's so hard to say what our favorite thing was about this awesome cruise. Staff and Disney service and crew were all top notch. The shows were all outstanding, especially compared to other cruise lines. There is no comparison to Disney.
The Star Wars day is not to be missed. Characters everywhere. We had our photos taken with Darth Vader and then Chewbaka, who talked in their actual movie voices. Chewie gave everyone hugs before the photo. The 'imperial police' questioned the Mom's for gambling (they were playing cards) and told them they needed a permit from the Emperor. We saw them 3 hours later and they said "there are the ladies with the gambling problem" and again asked for their documentation and gambling permit. The Animators Palate restaurant was unbelievable. We drew cartoons on place mats before dinner, and then watched them come to life in animation on the TV screens later during the meal. And if you haven't been to Castaway Cay, it's paradise.
All in all this was about as perfect a cruise as you can get. Both Mom's have booked to go back with us next year.
Disney knows how to throw a party. Very clean accommodations and great attention to all details. No worries on the transportation when you take the Disney Magical Express from Orlando (MCO) Airport to the cruise ship at port Canaveral.
