To Consider Before Your Purchase

What Do They Say on Other Sites 

"If you know anything about Disney, they really put their hearts into anything that they do. Oh boy, did they really make this Cruise on the Wonder Ship an awesome one! "(WorldWidePlayer on Tripadvisor).

"I recently went on this 5 day Disney Dream cruise that stopped in Bahamas and Castaway Cay. I am baffled at how it had so many great ratings. I am still trying to figure out how people give such great ratings in general for Disney Cruises. I thought it was DEFINITELY not worth the money". (ABC on Tripadvisor)
