I gave this wonderful cruise a 4 star rating...couldn't call it a perfect 10 because of it's poor excuse for a kids' club.  We registered our 3 year old twins who were so excited to be Aquanots.  What they experienced was a big empty room with one adult sitting in a chair.  No toys-no planned activities-nothing!  The person did not introduce herself, nor did she ask the kids' names.  Our son wouldn't stay, but our daughter did.  We picked her up in an hour...still no toys, activities, and the "youth counselor" sitting in a chair.  Our daughter said she did "nothing" the entire time.  I was really angry that the daily program listed all of the activities that had taken place that day.  We talked to several other parents who had the same experience. If a well-staffed, activity oriented, friendly kid's club is what you want, sail on Disney.  Our two cruises with Disney were wonderful for our kids.

Ship Tip

We booked tickets for all the shows prior to sailing. We shopped in St. Thomas, of course - we'd been there sightseeing many times before. Beware that the ship does not dock at Havensight pier. If you want to shop there, take a taxi, shop, then walk back along the harbor to downtown.

Divi Little Bay beach is the way to go. Warm gentle water - great for the whole family.
