Default What's the best thing about a Disney Cruise?

Disney is completely different from other cruise lines. So, what is the best thing about them?

Is it the food, the service, the entertainment? the staff?

Is it worth the extra money?

To answer your questions..................yes, yes and yes!
what is best depends on the age of the person you ask. Your inner child awakens if an adult and if a child.......just all the splender that only Disney can do. Worth every cent unless your the type who can't be pleased no matter what! We are going back and on the new DREAM in April 2011. Can't wait!

I can only compare Disney to one other cruise line but the service of the cM's is outstanding compared to the other line.
Cleanliness of the crew too.
Food is average for breakfast and lunch, dinners are great.
I love DCL because they have so many different events during the day and evening there is always something for everyone to do.

The other line only had Bingo and trivia and the Casino. I was so bored!!!
DCL is never that way. There is no way you can do it all.
I also like the adult only pool and hot tubs that the other line didnt have.

The general atmosphere is so much more uplifting on DCL. I love seeing the kids having fun and i love all the characters too. All I really remember seeing on the other line was drunks stumbling out of the casino and vomitting on the floor. Not exactly the atmosphere I want to spend my vacation around.

Yes I have seen a couple of drunk people on DCL too. But they didnt bother anyone and they were not roaming around where the kids were.

The ease of getting off the ship is AWESOME with DCL.

we get off when we want in the morning as long as everyone is off the ship by 9 a.m. grab our luggage where it is in a warehouse laid out by characters on your tags, walk right up to customs and out the door. It takes ,maybe 10 minutes from start to finish.

The other line it was 4 hours before we could get off the ship. Plus we had to be out of our room by 8 a.m. so we just cluttered up the different areas of the ship waiting for them to call our color or deck.

So overall DCL was a much more pleasant experience. We have gone with and without kids. There is plenty to keep adults busy on DCL.

I love it. You almost just have to experience it to understand the Disney experience.
I hope you try it.

Kathleen

You get to see Disney Characters in unexpected places - I saw Lilo, Stitch, Captain Hook, and Mr. Smee in the spa aboard the Disney Wonder!

Disney cruises are designed to help lift the financial pinch that many families fret about when going on a vacation.Most cruises are done by the next tier of cruise lines like Carnival, Royal Caribbean, Norwegian,Princess,Celebrity,Holland America and Disney.I like Freestyle Cruising.It has been on many Norwegian ships and at one time NCL was my favorite cruise line until the line.

Disney is really a nice cruise lines,If they provide all the things about food service and entertainment all are really a good and staff is good,if they provide a good service then they take a charge for that and if you get a better service then you pay money for that.

The best thing about a Disney cruise is the smoked turkey legs at the pirate deck party!!
