Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
they do 'force' rotational dining among the 3 'general' dining rooms. Some were noisier than others but the overall was very nice. One night in the 'upscale' dining room was an additional $10 /head but certainly worth it. I wish we had been able to get in a second time.

There was 'too much' to do. We were on vacation but didn't want to miss 'anything'. Actually, we did the galley tour and housekeeping demonstrations (fancy towel and napkin folding sessions). Being a Disney boat there were first run Disney movies (they do do movies for more than just kids...The Guardian was showing and was barely in the theater at home.

Children's Programs

5 out of 5
It appeared to be wonderfully organized and very well done. Were our kids still kids, and had we chosen to take them I would have had no problem entrusting them to the programs.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Almost too much ...but not really. Pampered would be a better word.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
if it wasn't walking around they were scraping and painting it :-)). Note: the space used for casenos on most ships was well used for quality staterooms and guest activities.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Very nice, clean and impecably maintained. You step out, they tidy up. We used a 'porthole' cabin upgrade rather than an interior room. Well worth the ?$180/trip.

Ports Of Call

George Town, Grand Cayman

3 out of 5
The tours were probably fine but we rented a scooter and hit the turtle farm and the butterfly house at our own pace. Lunch ashore was excellent in town. Shopping was a bit 'pricy'.

Castaway Cay (Disney Private Island)

3 out of 5
It was a nice 'extra day'. We walked a lot and wished we had taken our own snorkel gear. Their's was a bit pricy for the little bit of 'poking around' in a ver 'controlled' reef area. I would have liked a 'real' reef dive but didn't get to it.

Cozumel, Mexico

5 out of 5
again...been there. The local shopping is good if you still have need of cultural nik naks or reasonably priced nice jewelry

Key West, Florida

5 out of 5
We've been before but it's a great day trip or could be longer.
Don't Miss: The sunset as the ship gets ready to depart.

Pros: the outstanding effort that all hands made to be assured that they were doing all they could to make the cruise excellent

Cons: There is an issue with smoking guests smoking wherever they chose on deck despite some small signage
