Best Family Cruise Ever! by TaylorKB

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (young children)
Ship: Disney Magic / Destination: Caribbean - Bahamas

We had a wonderful cruise with our kids. This was a first for me traveling with children on a cruise and we were more than impressed. The cleanliness and pristine condition of the boat was comforting, as well as the incredible service we were provided! We were so happy, we rebooked! Can't wait for our cruise next year!
