Our very first time on a cruise. We were family of 6, adjoining rooms with daughter, son in law , 4 yr old and 6 yr old. Rooms were immaculate and the veranda views were beautiful. Disney app made scheduling character sessions, shows, activities and messaging between family members easy and convenient.
Food at cabanas was very good and varied. Shows were fantastic and magical for both the children and adults. Kids enjoyed the kids club and attended 3 out of 5 days for 2 hours each day which was a little nice break for both them and the adults. Prices at clubs for drinks and food were comparable to city eateries. Kids were able to see each character because we kept an eye on timing and made sure we were early for each activity plus set alerts on the app which were very useful and we took our own pictures , no need for photo package. Since it was a repositioning cruise our port stop was Antigua, took a brief walk to see some local sites, church and people then headed early back to ship for some pool/slide time in a calmer atmosphere.
Pools are small so one needs to be flexible with when to attend. Every single Disney employee was friendly, helpful and pleasant. The dance party’s in the atrium were crowded yet they were short enough that kids enjoyed without getting overwhelmed. Servers in restaurants were like friends and attentive to children and their wishes. Overall it was a wonderful experience for the little ones and priceless to watch their excitement.
Few suggestions for Disney would be to figure out the WiFi difficulties and charges, to add more some comedians for adults and to have the characters Moving around ship more to make surprise sightings opposed to only scheduled ones. Thank you Disney for our magical cruise!
