Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
All of the dining rooms was a great experience and great food but I have to mention our servers Andrene & Marco as they made our dining experience truly exceptional. They were top-notch and went out of their way for my children, ourselves and my parents.

Service and Staff

Our servers Andrene & Marco made our dining experience truly exceptional. They were top-notch and went out of their way for my children, ourselves and my parents. Also our room steward Jonathan was amazing. He kept our room spotless throughout the day and we never needed to request anything extra because it was there!

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Our ship was amazing and never saw anything dirty or out of place. Everything looked well attended to and maintained. It was a lot of walking but I think the layout of the ship was fine.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Although small the cabin worked for our family of four. I loved the idea of the raised bed and we were able to store for suitcases underneath out of the way. Our cabin was clean at all times. Comfortable beds and pillows.

Castaway Cay (Disney Private Island)

5 out of 5
Absolutely loved Castaway Cay and the activities. Our family did the stingray Excursion and had a blast. Rented my 12 year old son snorkel equipment and he loved every minute. So happy the post office was open and was able to mail myself and my parents a postcard!

Port Canaveral, Florida

We did the Magic Kingdom Excursion and although we have been to Magic Kingdom several times we had a blast.

Ate breakfast then disembarked the ship. Everything went very smooth. The porter handling our luggage was excellent.
