Review summary

This was the cruise of a lifetime and the best of our 5 cruises taken. Loved every minute of it, and 9 days was a perfect length! Would absolutely cruise again to this area or on a longer cruise like this... the length allows you to sample everything you want to do with no pressure that you don't have much time. So relaxing! And the ship felt like home in no time.

Embarkation

5 out of 5
smooth. the terminal gets pretty congested right before embarkation, but it was tolerable and Disney managed the experience well.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Amazing dining experience in main dining rooms! Our team took incredible care of us and loved that our teens were foodies. As they found out items they loved, they started appearing on our table before we even asked - escargot and crab legs especially!

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
Terrific variety of options for entertainment. We loved the naturalist presentations, trivia and adult games. Plus the views everywhere were stunning

Children's Programs

The boys had a great time in Edge and met several friends they hung out throughout the 9 day cruise

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
As always, Disney service is amazing. The waiters got to know us, paced the meal so we could get to evening things we wanted to do, and the room steward was super attentive and helpful for even the smallest requests!

Ship Quality

probably my favorite Disney ship!

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
perfect base for us on this cruise. We spent a lot of time up on deck 4 enjoying the views. Some reviews talked about bubbles in the porthole but we didn't notice any. Either they fixed it or it just isn't that bad.

Ship tip

Enjoy the Promenade lounge (now named something else but the lounge outside Tiana's place) - lots of fun events, evening snacks and morning pastries plus a great spot to just sit and relax and watch the views.

Icy Strait Point (Hoonah), Alaska

Went on a Bear Search - did not see any bears because the salmon were late in running due to drought but the tour guide was awesome, and shared a lot about everyday Alaskan life and we did berry picking which was quite fun! Ended up being one of my son's favorite ports!

Juneau, Alaska

5 out of 5
Took a Mendenhall Glacier visit /Humpback Whale cruise excursion and saw 4, including one mom/baby pair. Well worth it and left us a little time to explore downtown as well.

The MOST amazing part of the trip! Such an amazing sight to see, I can't imagine anything being better and it was the main highlight of my trip!
