This was our first cruise and if it is any gauge of cruising in general, sign me up for the next one. We had a wonderful time (with some extremely minor annoyances). I was traveling with my wife and two children (ages 9 and 13) and a neighboring family.
We had to wait a little while to board the ship due to heightened security, but once onboard found the rooms (inside stateroom) immaculate and actually quite roomy. Each child had their own bed (but fought over the upper bunk).
Our cabin person was great and very helpful. Our servers at meals were super and actually picked up on our kids likes and dislikes very quickly.
This was our first cruise and it was even better than we expected. Should’ve known Disney never does anything just "normal"!
My children, ages 13 and 10, were so entertained, they never wanted to be with us! Awesome counselors that make you feel totally comfortable leaving your kids with. The food is absolutely wonderful! We did the 3-day cruise and do not for the life of me know how you keep from gaining 300 lbs on a 7-cruise. I have one picky eater and of course there is the separate menu for them. The next cruise will definitely be the 4 day or 7. Three days goes by too, too fast! The ship is spotless and the crew has got to be the friendliest people on earth! Never once went by a crew member where they didn’t smile and say "Hi, how are you?" We were in the cheapest possible stateroom and was still very well pleased! My only regret is that we didn’t do this kind of trip sooner! And, I don’t think we will be so brave as to try another cruise line, even when our kids are grown and gone. Adults love this cruise ship as much as the kids do! My kids didn’t want to leave on the last day. They were teary-eyed and I was right there feeling the same way! This was worth every penny we spent!!!!!!!!!!!!!
