Our cruise was amazing! Disney does it right every time. We have traveled all over the world and Disney is by far the most customer centric operation. While the cruises are not inexpensive - they are worth every dollar.

When you book your vacation through Disney everything is taken care of; from travel to transfers to lodging, etc. We've done strictly land packages with Disney as well as a combo of land and sea and then strictly sea packages (Bahamas, eastern and western Caribbean, etc.).

Adults and children alike enjoy this wonderful vacation because there is so much to do for every age group. This is definitely a family oriented cruise line, but there are quiet areas for adults only and entertainment geared toward adult audiences (and plenty of venues). I'm disgusted with the reviews from people who didn't like the cruise because there were children on board. What did you expect from Disney? They have the most extensive kids program around which means that everyone in the family enjoys their vacation. What a silly thing to complain about. This will be our 3rd Disney Cruise and we just keep going back for more because it is the best!

The food is excellent - something for everyone (and tons of it)! There is a great variety in each restaurant which changing menues daily. Make sure to visit the late night dessert buffet (one evening during the 7 night cruises)! Also, if you don't feel like eating in your assigned venue for an evening, remember that there are other options onboard.

Our room was clean, comfortable, cool and accommodating. The maid service was outstanding (very friendly and helpful on all fronts).

Awesome variety for children and adults alike. Our son loves all of the children's programming and takes full advantage. While he's getting to know new friends, my hubby and I are lounging by the adult pool, taking in a cooking show, checking out the art work or having a spa. There are many decks on the cruise so it is not hard to find a quiet spot for two if you want some quality alone time.

Our entire family enjoys these vacations. An ideal age for children to enjoy the cruise, in my hubmle opinion, is between 7 and 12. There are also teen activities for the older kids, though I can't comment on that since our child isn't old enough. Just know that you'll have every type of activity at your fingertips along with fabulous entertainment of every type.

We've done several excursions which were all fun, depending on your level of energy and your preference. Many times we like to go out on our own and explore the ports of call, especially the beaches and areas native to the islands. Do yourself a favor and get a roundtrip ticket for cab rides on the islands- as it is less expensive than paying for each individual trip. Also, you cannot miss the chance to swim and interact with dolphins.

I would describe this cruise in one word: INCREDIBLE! Disney is our preferred source of travel every time. You can't go wrong!
