THIS IS PURE PRICE GOUGING. Families work way too hard to be ripped off like this. There are other family friendly lines that cost far less, and are amazing. Have sailed multiple cruise lines, apx 20 cruises. Disney was one I sailed on 4 times, back when they first offered cruises. The prices 15-20 years ago were fair and competitive (Yes, 2 of their ships are 20 years old). Since their prices have been jacked up, I have never been back. Will never go back. Shame on you Disney!


Cabin / Stateroom
Cabin was the same quality as other ships. The only added benefit is having the shower/tub separate from the head.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Ship Quality
Destinations and Excursions
Onboard Activities
Children's Programs
Service and Staff
Disney Cast are always great, however so are all cruise lines
Food and Dining
Food was nothing special, the Animators Dining room was beautiful. The other were nothing special.
Port Canaveral, Florida For Embarking it is very nice. For activities, not so much.
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
Always use caution, the crime rate is high in various areas. Stay in groups, and keep your money in different areas on your body. If one pocket is picked or purse stolen you still have your money and ID in a separate place.
Castaway Cay (Disney Private Island)
It is beautiful, and kid friendly. Lots of water activates which cost extra (a lot extra), Since the cost of the cruise is so high, there should NOT be high dollar fee's for the water sports.


Disembarking onto Castaway Cay is crazy, and even dangerous to small children.
