Review summary

Our first cruise. Superb family cruise with kids ages 12 - 5. Food was superb as was service. Shows geared for families, but there were also places on the ship that were "adults only" with sufficient buffer space. Kids got to participated on an end of cruise show in the theater with the characters. Thought it funny on the last night as the crew was looking for tips, the matre'd showed up next to our table with his hand out (first time he ever said boo to us). Disney does it right - but believe their price point is too high.
