My family and I had a great time on the 7 day western carribean Disney Magic cruise. I had been on a Carnival cruise years ago and Disney put them to shame. For a boat with 875 state rooms there was an army of about 1000 staff making sure everything was taken care of. Ship was immaculate and constantly being cleaned. Rooms were attended to 2X/day and dining staff were courteous and helpful without hovering over you. Food was very good. Castaway Cay was the best stop in terms of ports and had a great beach and area for snorkeling.

The only down side to the cruise was in terms of incidental charges: I would expect to pay for drinks or photos from a profesional photographer. Did not, however, expect additional charge for upscale restaurant ($10/person) or expect to have to rent a raft, windsurfer or snorkel equipment at Castaway Cay. These do not add up to an enormous amount but are a turn off.

Disney has very good food and service. They also are carefuly about trying to prevent contact-borne illness by handing out towlettes to sanitize hands whenever you enter a dining room or return to the ship

Went hiking on a ranch that had some Mayan ruins. Ruins nothing like those on mainland Mexico. If I were to go here again would recommend trying something else like beach, snorkeling or diving.

Clearly the best stop of the trip. Family beach gets a bit crowded but it is very nice and there is a separate quieter one for adults only. Lunch is done on the island so you don't have to return to the ship. Only down side here were extra charges for rafts snorkeling equipment, etc...

Pros: Level of service

Cons: additional charges
