    I'm trying to talk my family into a Disney cruise but a coworker of my fathers said that the Disney cruise is REALLY packed with people. Was that unusual or pretty standard?

    Hi Christina,

    Welcome to the Moms Panel, and great question - I know exactly where you are coming from!  Sometimes people hear the word "Disney" and assume that the cruise will be nothing more than an overcrowded floating theme park. 

    Nothing could be further from the truth!

    What I love about cruising is that regardless of when or where you decide to go - there can only be as many guests as the ship's capacity allows.  So although the Disney Wonder and Disney Magic both offer magical vacation experiences for up to 2,700 guests at a time, I can honestly tell you that the Disney Imaginers have done a fantastic job of designing a space to adequately and comfortably distribute the guests for optimum comfort.  Of course there will be times when some areas of the ship may seem a bit crowded (like the Mickey Pool around noon on a hot day) - but there is always another area of the ship where you can find solitude and quiet at those times (such as the padded lounge chairs on deck four).

    I hope this helps, good luck with your persuasion!
