Review summary

We enjoyed this cruise; the Disney staff and crew are excellent!  They are "100%".

Our disappointment was the fact that we were not able to get off at Castaway Cay.  This is our favorite port.  A friend cruised with Disney not too long ago, and they were not able to disembark there, either.  I understand the weather is what it is, but it's too bad the port entry can't be improved to allow for easier entry, or maybe the use of tenders?  There was plenty to do onboard, though.

My daughter remarked that the staff in the children's club/lab, the "Youth Team", was not as friendly as the rest of the staff.  Our dining room server, and room attendant, were "awesome", and she didn't feel the same about the youth staff.  Nonetheless, she had fun with the activities she chose.

The food is outstanding.  Each meal feels like a dinner in a 5 star restaurant.  When my mom asked the maître d' if bread pudding or crepes were served in any of the dining rooms, he had some specially prepared for her.  The staff go above and beyond in almost every way.

We'll be back for more Disney cruises.  If you cruise during "low season" (Jan-Feb-March), it is a very good value considering the meals, etc, are all included.

Nicely designed to maximize space, and clean! My daughter loves the "towel animals" made up by the room staff each night.

Ship tip

Stay onboard during visits to Grand Cayman/Nassau, etc...nice to have the ship to yourself! Make sure to enjoy Castaway Cay, though. READ the book in the room. Lots of helpful info--ie: the ship has laundry facilities for guests to use--$1/wash, $1/dry. My 9 yo loved Animator's menu the best.

Not really a port--we just boarded there.

George Town, Grand Cayman

We don't like being crammed into a vehicle, driving around looking for other paying customers, for a "canned" tour. Further, the tour driver told us we had a 20" walk back to port from the beach he dropped us at. It was 45"--good thing we allowed extra time. None of us are slow walkers.

Castaway Cay (Disney Private Island) Did not visit port

Not able to disembark here. Otherwise, it's great (from past experience).
