Review summary

Great experience. We would do the Disney cruise again. I want to try a different ship of Disney. The food was good, the islands were beautiful, the staff on the ship was great. I would recommend this cruise to families as well as single people as well. They have activities for everyone.

Cabin / Stateroom

There was four of us. It was a good size. We were not in the cabin a lot. We are an active family.

Ship tip

We could hear the engine at times, so maybe next time I would stay on a floor above floor 2.

The BBQ provided by Disney and the Beach are amazing. We rented the water bike. The water slides looked fun, we did not use them.

Nassau, Bahamas

We did an excursion to Balmoral Island to swim with the Dolphins, the company BJ's uses is unorganized. First it says be there by 8, the ship did not let people off until 7:45 so we rushed and rushed to get to Senor Frogs and no one was there at the meeting chair. At 8:30 we finally go over to one boat and ask do you know this provider we are looking for? He is like oh yeah that is me, the lady that is supposed to be here is running late and anyway the boat does not scheduled to leave until 9am. Really because on our paper it says be here by 8am. So the company was going to make us wait an hour after we rushed to get to the boat. BJ's should think of using another provider. Also, the island only has one restaurant, they say more than one, but its only one. The food is super expensive! Lunch was $97 for four of us and I am not talking about a served lunch, I am talking about it comes in a takeout package and you bring it to the table. If you do the dolphin experience, they take pictures (8) and they want you to buy the whole package (all 8) for $117 and you can not buy one picture, it has to be all pictures!!! The Dolphin experience was fun, I would do that again! Next time, I would bring food from the ship, pack a lunch and maybe just buy drinks. The pool is nice as well!
