This was my first time on a cruise, but have gone to all-inclusive resorts previously. Overpaid for Disney, and it's not worth it. I will go cruising again, but not with Disney. If it weren't for the off-ship excursions (all self-directed), the trip would have been a disaster.

Food was fine. Generally lots of options, but everything was rich and heavily sauced. Plenty of fresh fruit, but not a lot of fresh veggies.

I was pleasantly surprised - room was big enough for all.

Disappointed. I expected better from Disney. Pools were small and overcrowded. Waterslide was age limited so my youngest couldn't go on (nor could I for that matter). The live shows were good, but the organized kids club was little more than a mosh pit where you you drop your kids so they could play video games or watch movies. There were line-ups for foozball and ping pong. The sports deck came equipped with only 1 basketball net, and 3 well used basketballs - and the containment net was too low so any arcing shot hot the roof. We had brought a soccer ball along which was great.

Go to St. John's. If you are tendering to get ashore, be early! Disney gives preference to those that booked excursions with them so they'll get ashore before you.
