With literally hundreds of cruise ships to sail on, we're thrilled to see the Disney Fleet making the top ten list in almost every category that was surveyed, with "Best for Fitness" being the only real exception. Once again the quality and standards that Disney is known for shine through when put to the test with real people on real vacations.

Karl L. Holz, president of Disney Cruise Line, had this to say about the honors:

Our crew members strive to deliver a vacation experience unlike anything else at sea, and this latest recognition speaks directly to their dedication and attentive service ... It's also true that the Disney Fantasy itself, like the other ships in our fleet, has a magical way of surprising and delighting our guests.

This should be of no surprise to anyone who has cruised on a Disney ship. I've done a Mediterranean, a Northern European, and several other cruises to the Bahamian islands on Disney ships, and they are all fantastic. I never get tired of traveling on a Disney ship (Wonder & Magic), it's like coming back home, yet they manage to surprise me with every new show, fabulous cuisines, and lets not get into the ports of call & shore tours. The cabins are wonderful, from the larger balcony ones, to the more modest! If you need to recharge your spirit and just get back to clean family fun, this is the cruise!
