Review summary

We took our two year old on this cruise for his birthday, he loves Disney Junior especially Mickey Mouse! We did character meet and greets, breakfast with a Disney Junior, participated in several crafts, visited the lab and club during open house and played in the splash pad. We watched a lot of movies on the outdoor screen, that was really fun!!

 

Overall, we truly enjoyed the cruise. The ports were awesome and probably our favorite part of the vacation. Almost every employee we encountered seemed to truly enjoy their job and were friendly.We took our cruise in December and I loved that the boat was decorated for Christmas and that there were Christmas activities like Gingerbread house building. 

 

I was was slightly disappointed with the lack of space/activities for my son's age  group. The splash pad is small and enclosed, the crafts for his age group is limited and I would HIGHLY suggest a toddler room with toys available during everyday of the cruise. We only used the nursery once for two hours, we spent a lot of time with our son and it would have been nice to have more activities and crafts available.

We had a Verandah that we hoped to use during mornings and my sons naps. I imagined sitting out and enjoying the oven and view, but the wall is metal so you have to be standing out on the Verandah to see anything. I don't think it was worth the extra money since you can sit out on it and enjoy the view.

Ship tip

Lots of tastings available at guest services, only limited tickets available. Check right when you get on board! Same thing for Gingerbread house making on decemeber cruises. Bring pirate gear for pirate night, don't miss the firework show. Mickey Bars available for room service, just ask.
