I always knew I wanted to try a Disney Cruise. It finally came time for me to book one. From the moment we pulled into the port to the time we disembarked, it was a truly magical experience.
The cast members really cared. You could tell that they weren’t just there to do there job but, they cared about every guest. As many people know, the servers move with you each night. They made every effort to do as much as possible at night. Our drinks were always waiting for us and, they would even go to other restaurants to get dishes. The activities team was stellar. They were so kind, patient and entertaining. The theater cast was incredible, always did amazing. The service is something that goes unmatched and is a major factor in why Disney is just different.
Activities on board were great. I was never bored. The Aquaduck line was never too long. D-Lounge and the District Lounge always had fun activities like trivia, crafts, competitions and more. There were constant character appearances and some were even hidden in quiet areas on the ship! There are always movies on the pool deck and in the movie theater, there’s plenty of fun shopping to do and there is the broadway style shows at night. The kids clubs are crazy. It seems that once the kids experience it once, they always want to go back! The entertainment offerings are endless and you will never get bored!
Food onboard is great, the best of any cruise line. There are options for everyone. There’s 3 different dining rooms for each night, tons of cafes that have complimentary snacks, flos, by the pool deck, they have pizza, burgers, tenders, wraps, paninis, fruit, salads and desserts and more! Cabanas, the buffet, has great quality food and there are snacks at the theater. For an additional cost you can also visit bars, smoothie bars and adults only dining.
The staterooms are the nicest of any line. Even the inside rooms are nice. I’ve been fortunate enough to stay in each category and each is nice. Inside rooms have magical portholes with characters visiting. There’s even a “sleepwalking goofy” who walks the halls at night. It’s magical. The beds are the nicest I’ve ever slept on anywhere.
Castaway Cay is truly a little peace of paradise. It’s so peaceful and the buffet is delicious. There is also activities to be done. It’s a blast
Is the cost worth it? Yes. There is something so magical about being on the ship. You’ll never be bored and you’ll have unlimited food.
Overall, if you were looking for a sign to book a Disney cruise, take this as it. You will never experience anything like a Disney cruise. If I could give this over 5 stars, I would. Disney cruising is an experience like no other that will leave you with magical memories.

We have traveled 2 times with the Disney Dream and absolutely love it If you are not a disney fan you really should not book this because the cruise is all about Disney Food is good (better than the parks but not great - it stays Disney food), cabins are nice and cleanliness ok. Staff is extremely friendly Great shows every night Pirate night is also amazing and the stay at Castaway Cay is just so much fun - can you believe Disney has an island??? Can't wait to try the Wish For the day at sea you need to be quick to book your activities

The Disney agent pressed us that we couldn't get off in the Cayman Islands if we didn't have an activity contracted. In the Disney cruise app I booked the Nautilus ride in the Cayman Islands for $54 for adults and $39 for children... Only to get to a ride of less than 1 hour, with a dirty boat, in poor condition, with torn seats and a bad smell. And that after reviewing, the price of that ride is $20 dollars when it cost me $54. Too bad that Disney does these robberies of such poor quality. The pools and slides are not a good option, you lose too much time in line and then finish in 20 seconds. It's just a plain "good" ride, without the Disney quality I was expecting.

The ship was clean and well organized. The Disney Cast Members were friendly and very accommodating. That's the good part. The rest...not so good. Let's start with the dining experience. The dining rooms were gaudy. The tables were too close together. The food was presented nicely but the taste was bland. I tried several different items and various meals. I was disappointed each and every time. The sandwiches and burgers at the "Cars" themed stands were the only meals that I enjoyed. The adult areas of the deck were cramped. The "District" adult area in the ship was "kid friendly" until 10 PM. However, The District was the only place to escape the endless loop of Disney movie themes on the ship. The entertainment was pretty bad. The Beauty and the Beast stage show was good but the other shows were awful. Never again Disney. Never again.
