Always amazed at the customer service from Disney. they train their staff well. Even for non-cruise types or those with poor past experiences, I would highly recommend a Disney Cruise. The level of care, attention to safety, variety of activities are off the charts. Worried about activities and fun for adults, don't be, plenty to keep yourself entertained. Pricey, but definitely worth the cost.

I sailed on the Disney Dream for the Halloween on the High Seas in September. While the entertainment was good, I was extremely disappointed with guest services and dining. I have a dairy allergy, but wasn't concerned before the trip, as I notified DCL well in advance and never had any problems at Disney World. However, this was not the case at all. The only time I was able to get dessert was the first night (which was a small piece of carrot cake). The option on the other 3 nights was chocolate (which I can't have). I had to pick from what was already available dairy free, or I could order spaghetti with tomato sauce. Then for our first day on Castaway Cay, I was told by my waiter that I would only need to pre-order dessert, and could order whatever else I wanted on the island. This was not the case, and they did not even have the dessert I pre-ordered. They said there was not a lot of options for me there. I ended up having to go back to the boat. Which is another thing I should mention, for lunch onboard you can go to Cabanas or the quick service places. After you order you're looking at a good 30-40 minute wait, during which you have to stay in the seating area. I would not recommend a Disney Cruise to anyone with an allergy or dietary restriction. I should also add during my time on Castaway Cay I got the snorkel gear, my first set leaked from around the glass, when I went back and got another pair and used them, they also leaked, after that I had to go back to the boat. I had to pay $34 per person the next day so that I could actually try the snorkelling. When I tried explaining the situation, it was brushed off.

I have always wanted to experience cruising with Disney. I figured with the current low prices and capacity, now is the time. We went on a 3-day one - stopping at Castaway Cay and one day at sea. One crew said there were 1300 passengers, but it really felt more like less than 1000. Our cabin was Deluxe Family Oceanview with Verandah. It has split bathroom that provides more space. It did not feel cramped. It also has an extended verandah that has 4 lounge chairs and a table. The room has lots of storage. We only ate at Cabana's (buffet) for lunch on embarkation day. The food there were nothing more than edible. They were all cold. Afterwards, we only ate at the restaurants. First dinner was at Royale Palace, food was tasty but lukewarm at best. However, the lunches and dinners after that were wonderful. The presentation alone were a feast for your eyes. The Animator's Palate was interactive. Mickey, Minnie and Pluto visited Enchanted Garden with a dance number. Make sure that if you do not have kids with you, visit the food place at Serenity Bay at Castaway Cay - the steak was tender and flavorful. Their private island, Castaway Cay is beautiful. Characters are everywhere - driving around, playing in the sand - plenty of picture opportunity. No shortage of lounge chairs with umbrella too. In a true Disney fashion, crew members or cast members were all an epitome of what customer service should look like. Our head server even got me rice when I said, "Oh, this looks so good, the only missing is rice!" It's those small things that makes the difference most of the time. Because of low capacity, no lines anywhere. We rode Aquaduck 3 times back to back. They also spaced out people in the theaters, seatings were every other row with 3 chairs in between parties. I felt comfortable the entire time that every measure was being done to minimize Covid outbreak in the ship. We are definitely booking another Disney Cruise in the future.
