Until Disney adds a casino, I won't step foot on a Disney ship. Ok ok MAYBE a 3 nighter but that would be my limit

You know Nick, that's a valid complaint a lot of people have, but it will never happen. Just like you cannot buy alcohol in Disneyland (unless you have access to Club 33). It's not "family friendly" so Disney just won't do it. That just about killed Tom McAlpin (ex prez of DCL). In a previous life he was a financial bean counter at RCCL. The idea of NO casino about gave him a stroke when he joined DCL.

I must be the only travel agent with a client who almost got thrown off a Disney cruise ship. My client was a 47 year old (very upscale) mother with a toddler and 11 yr old and decided it was time to take them on a Disney cruise. This is going back a few years but the way she tells the story, she had to be physically restrained from trying to kill Mickey and all of his friends.

Needless to say, I have never suggested another Disney cruise. Tried to suggest Disney Adventures to her and she actually thought about that one since it didn't involve a mouse being around.

Perhaps you know that there are mothers, who regardless of age, are exceptionally patient with kids and then there are the OTHERS. Not to say anything bad about the OTHERS but let me put is nicely, she is one of the OTHERS.

'M' is a lovely woman but is an older mother who is used to getting what she wants and when she wants it. She also HATES anything related to Disney. Ask me why I booked her on the ship????? She felt it was her motherly duty to take her kids to Disney World and to experience a cruise. So here we are, 'M' and family boarding the Disney Cruise- their first cruise. It is all decorated for Christmas and she doesn't see a single menorah for Chanukkah on the ship. That starts her off badly. Then the characters are starting to annoy her. Then the kids are starting to annoy her. It's Christmas week on a Disney ship----- what does she expect? Hubby had to keep the characters away from her because she would have hit them if they approached.

Thank goodness it was only a 3 day cruise. She spoke of those 3 days as torture. I didn't talk to her about another cruise until the Freedom of the Seas came out. Her friends were going so she booked it- again Christmas week too. Kids were older. No Mickey and friends on the ship. Guess what, she hated that one too.

Won't even mention another cruise to her anymore.

Sounds like a wise idea- she is not suited for the mainstream cruiseline. Maybe a small, luxury ship would be more her speed. She must have hated Disneyworld too.

Sounds like the billboard for J-A-P. There is one - yes one - Jewish couple who works at SC Johnson who managed to gripe so much :taz: that the Easter egg hunt for the kids was eliminated, the Christmas party for the kids was cut way back and the child care center's Christmas show was totally eliminated, even after re-naming it 'holiday pageant'. cursing

Some people cannot be happy until everybody else is unhappy, then they are still unhappy themselves.

I do not know her, but I cannot see how you can call her a "lovely woman".

Let's not take this the wrong way. M is a lovely, caring and highly intelligent woman and business person. I think she was completely off balance on the cruise since she was an older mother, not used to tons of little kids screaming around her (2nd child was completely unexpected after being told she would never have any more children). I should have talked her out of the Disney cruise but she insisted.

She is much more of a Crystal or Regent person where there would be few, if any, screaming children to deal with. Her complaints about the Freedom of the Seas had to do with the food and beverage quality and, although I love that class of ship, I have heard other complaints about the food too.

Don't want to get into an arguement about this client but she sent me a book a while back because she thought I would enjoy it. Not many other of my clients would think to do something like that.

I will not send her on another mass market cruise and, perhaps, once her baby is out of the house, she will become a great Crystal or Regent cruiser.
