Kids had more fun in the kids club than on the Disney Cruise kids clubs. They actually take the kids out of the rooms and around the ship at certain times. My older son (10) had a great time on the Flowrider and the lineups weren't too bad at any given time. The staff was really good at giving tips to people and giving them a few chances.

 

Wait staff Vibin and Rongrong were so friendly and attentive and food in Silk was so good that we cancelled our reservations in the paid restaurants. There just wasn't any need to pay for food when our experience was great in the dining room.

 

If I have any complaints, it's that the refillable drink cups that you have to carry around with you are a pain in the butt.  I never seemed to have mine with me and there aren't enough stations around the ship to refill them. My husband gave up and just drank cocktails instead!

 

Also, the music was so loud in the Windjammer particularly at breakfast that we had to yell at each other to be heard at our table. This was annoying especially after having one too many drinks the night before.

 

Lounge chairs poolside are easy to grab (and we needed 5 in a row), and there's a lot of space on the ship so it never felt crowded.

Checking in was easy but checking out took a lot longer because even though they try to stagger the departure times, everyone seemed to pile off all at once.

 

All in all, it was amazing and we will be back as we never got to do everything that we wanted to.

Avoid the stupid drink cups that you need to carry everywhere and just order from the bar.
