Everyone was very friendly for our embarkation. They welcome each family onboard and all families are ready to have an amazing time and very excited!

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

1 out of 5
Terrible!! Service was VERY poor! We didn’t get a dinner served as a family until the 4th night. The 4th night our service was AMAZING and everything you’d expect from Disney. The show at rapunzels was great.

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
Pools were smaller than expected. 2 slides aboard the ship and sometimes a 45 minute wait. Lots of activities do kids (kids club) but lacked on adult activities. Show times were very inconvienant for families with young children. If you had early dinner (5:45) your show didn’t start until 8:30. If you had last dinner your show was before. No way to enjoy a show and get young children to bed at a normal child’s bedtime.


Unable to attend shows due to timing

Children's Programs

We just walked around and did some shopping. Very clean and people were friendly and it felt very safe.

Castaway Cay (Disney Private Island)

Not much for young children to do. Slides that you see in TV at ad are over 10ft deep.
