English is not my language, sorry for that, I hope you will understand, Third Cruise so far, nice boat, but dont know why Disney claims they last long time trying to design something different. Good dining experience due their rotation, stay away from buffet 9 floor (read below). Fast check in, and the best check out so far, the last day they will schedule your breakfast at one restaurant, you have to be there with your hand luggage, once you finish your breakfast at your will just leave the ship and your luggage will be there, GREAT idea instead of waiting in any "public area" until you are called. Food quality is good, but stay away from the Beach Blanket Buffet at 9 floor, they designed that restaurant in a way that you cannot eat more than once. The fork, knife and dish are provided to you by a lady just at the entrance of the place, once you finish your entry plate a guy will pick your tools and dish up and if you want some more you should need at least a clean dish, you have to go outside of the place make the line again to get a clean dish, they are not available inside the restaurant, this is the best way to tell you *don't eat more than once.* And after you choose your food and you look somewhere to sit, the place is really tight, crowed and makes you feel uncomfortable, I cruised on RCL and the Windjammer *the buffet restaurant* is miles away from this Disney *save a penny design* there is no comparison between both. I stay with RCL on this, One PLUS for Disney, they change your dining room during your cruise, but your server will follow you, I think this is a great idea because there are always something different each night. Also, I'm Diet Coke addict, on DCL soft drinks are included in the price, BIG HIT DISNEY!!! Room was clean, but soap neither Shampoo were delivered until we asked for it at the third day. This is a PLUS, never miss a show, they really know how to entertain people, this a 100% At Castway Cay, dont miss the snorkeling and look for Mickey and other interesting bottom of the ocean items. At Nassau, if you want to do something different go to Atlantis to spend your day, Nassau is just as another harbor. It was nice, but honestly I was expecting more from Disney, the shows were GREAT, but our stateroom without a regular supply of soap and shampoo looked cheap, at the two main shops just before entering the theatre all the windows items even the Mickey and Minnie were covered with dust. I made the reservation for our trip on August 2008, almost four months before the actual cruise, at the time of booking (we were a party of 8) the system told me that more than 7 would clasify for a Family pack which will include a Tee for every member and a photo in a frame, once on board I went to Guest Services and they told me that this promo was discontinued on Dec 2008, and if a have some claim I need to do it via the shore team, (I was 150 miles into the sea away from that place) on board they do not carry any of the items that I was talking about. A thumb down on Disney here. At shore, same history, the promo was discontinued on Dec 2008 despite I reserved three months before.
