We surprised our 4 children and took them on the trip of a lifetime! We didn't tell them where we were going until we all sat down on the airplane!! We had the most magical experience on our Disney Cruise! We have cruised before, but our kids haven't so it was wonderful watching them enjoy it as much as we were. 3 of our 4 children were able to experience the Ocean Club/Lab programs. They loved it so much that there were times that my husband, baby and I were the only ones at dinner - the kids wanted to eat with their new friends. They close down the Beach Blanket just for the kids and they loved the buffet! The shows were fantastic, the staff (crew members) were wonderful, the islands were so wonderful, the food was great! (let your kids wear their Disney Princess or Buzz lightyear costumes to dinner) They even gave my daughter her ketchup in the shape of a Mickey face!! Our kids were also able to walk down the halls meant just for cast members and characters (just like the underground world at Dinsey Parks) It was pretty cool a few days of the trip and Disney really made up for that. There was no time to be upset that your warm experience wasn't happening because of all the activities to do. Pirate night was so exciting with Mickey coming down from the top of the ship out of nowhere! We skipped the character signing and pictures taking expect on our formal night. We could see the princess in the glass elevators and told the kids we would rather watch them in the shows and they seemed okay with that. The lines are long and honestly, they were more intreged with looking at them than getting an autograph. We took pictures and our little ones still love looking at them. Our staterooms were a such a surprise! We had adjoining rooms and it was perfect for our family. We all had space and the two bathrooms in each room was just so fantastic! I would wake up early just to sit in our window and watch us port (try and get a room portside)! It was a peaceful experience. When we ported in Castaway Cay we made all of kids wake up early and we went up on the top deck to see us come in to the gorgeous island. We also loved it when we left all the people on the island waved at us with Big Mickey Hands on...made me get teary! We truly want our kids to see the world and with the cruise we were able too! Thanks Disney for a Magical Family Experience! We already have our next one booked and we will see you soon!

You will get chills! Each show was so much fun and so lively - you felt like you were part of the show! We loved them!

Children's Programs

5 out of 5
Can't say enough. Our kids still talk about it and can't wait to go back. The crew members called them by name and the activities were so exciting for the kids. One night we were flipping thru the tv in our room and saw our oldest daughter playing basketball on the bow of the ship with here group! We had fun eating room service (free) and watching her play at 10:30 at night! What a vacation!

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
We won a picture of Mickey that an artist had sketched onboard and left it in our room accidently on the last day. When we went back it was gone and the Customer Service guy spent 30 minutes hunting it down and found it for us ~ we still have it hanging in our playroom!

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The ship is beautiful! It was so elegant and Disney, but elegant Disney! Very clean and by they end of the trip we were telling other people how to get to places!
