This was our first Disney Cruise, although we have had cruises with other major cruise companies (Carnival, Princess, etc.) , so I have a good frame of reference.

While the ship and accommodations were fine, there are some warnings I have to others that have not sailed with Disney before. First, travelers should be prepared that on top of the cost for the Cruise, Disney is constantly trying to 'upsell' more products and services. It seems everywhere you turn they find an opportunity to extract more money from you. There is a 'Pirate theme night' which naturally has a Pirate store with pirate clothing ready to sell you, There is a boutique for little girls filled with princess dresses…etc, etc. There are NO LIQUOR drinks included in the cost of the the cruise, this is all extraEven if you want a Cappucino it is more expensive than Starbucks. The biggest shock of them all is how we went to the gym onboard to a foot pain class, and they tried to sell us Good Feet shoe insets for $200! (After reviews on this product, I discovered these were a complete ripoff)

Disney has no 'conflict of interest' policy with the workers selling goods!

The Cabin Was Fine Besides The Fact That We Were Right Under A Loud Theatre And We Had To Call The Front Desk To Lower The Music & They Didn't Even Lower It.
