Both classic and ultramodern, the line's ships are like no others in the industry, designed to evoke the grand transatlantic liners but also boasting a handful of truly innovative, always-improving features. These include extralarge cabins for families, several restaurants through which passengers rotate on every cruise, fantastic Disney-inspired entertainment, separate adult pools and lounges, and the biggest kids' facilities at sea. In many ways, the experience is more Disney than it is cruise (for instance, there's no casino); but on the other hand, the ships are surprisingly elegant and well laid out, with the Disney-isms sprinkled around subtly, like fairy dust, amid the Art Deco and Art Nouveau design motifs. Head to toe, inside and out, they're a class act.
Disney is nothing if not organized, so its 3- and 4-night cruises are designed to be combined with a Disney theme park and hotel package to create a weeklong land/sea vacation. You can also book these shorter cruises (as well as longer cruises) separately.
Hands down, Disney is at the top of the heap when it comes to family fun, and its cruises overall are among the very best in the mainstream category in terms of service, cabins, entertainment, and food. Though Royal Caribbean, Carnival, Celebrity, NCL, and Princess all devote significant attention to kids, it took Disney to create vessels in which both kids and adults are really catered to equally, and with style and elegance. If you love Disney, you'll love these two floating theme parks.
