DCL or other for these ages--Advice

I am wondering if I/we have made a good choice about a caribbean cruise.

DH & I want to go DCL because we really love all things disney. But in all fairness we have these ages to also consider, 32,29, & 26 year olds. The middle age is female. The 32 year old is our son and so is the 26 year old. DIL really wants to go on a disney cruise. She has only been on one cruise ever but she really like disney. Our 32 year old son could care less about disney (go figure) and the 26 year old is pretty easy.

In all honesty, do you all feel that DCL will be a good fit for them? We have never cruised disney before so I would really like some input here. We haven't booked yet but we are gearing up to since we want to go in January or February. I really think they will all just love the ship and the shows and the fun in general but since I have never been on a disney cruise I may not be being objective since this is what DH & I want to do. None of the kids have said "no" they don't want to go disney and boys can be subjective at times. So, if we actually voted LOL, Disney would win but I'm not that kind of a person.
So, give me you thoughts and what you would probably do keeping in mind what I have told you.


Thank you everyone!!

I guarantee that there will be something to do for everyone! I'm a 25 year old female and I had a blast at everything. My parents and 23 year old sister did as well. Disney has something for everyone.

My sister and dad did a martini tasting, and they also had wine and whiskey tastings. There's a mixology class, sports trivia, karaoke, dance nights for adults, adults only spots, family trivia night, Disney trivia, etc. There's so much to do. Just remember to always check your Navigator once on board to see when everything is going on.

Enjoy your cruise!

Thank you so much for your opinion. I just was a bit concerned since the guys aren't necessarily disney fans like me and DH are. Of course I know that when we are in port, they will be busy off the ship but I still want them to have a good experience with DCL and not feel like they blew their money and could have sailed on another cruise line.

I was actually looking at RCCI because I wanted to try their Oasis class. But, I've wanted to sail disney for years and actually had planned several time to do so and one thing after another would come up and we just couldn't go. So, not wanting to be selfish I needed another opinion.

I'm 33 and I'm going on an Alaskan cruise in two weeks. I've been on two shorter cruises previously. There's lots to do, including adult activities and fun for all ages. (We have no kids.)

I wouldn't worry. Also, they're adults, so even if they don't like the cruise line you can tell them they should've spoken up before you booked and now they just have to deal with it.

You're welcome. Honestly, I think they will have a great time. There is so much to do that even if you do a 5 night cruise you won't be able to do everything so you don't have to worry about them being bored. Also, I forgot to mention the shows. They are really good. Check them out if you can!

I would go for it. There's so much to do! DCL is not in your face Disney or full of bothersome kids running around. The food is great (and plentiful), service excellent and the soda station is free.

I have a group of young to late 20 year olds all going in February 2015.

We love DCL because it is the service of Disney (the best service of Disney) with out it being overly Disney. You can drink to your hearts content (and even bring your own booze online), you can dance the night away in adults only clubs, you can go to adult comedy nights and the list goes on and on.

The only thing DCL doesn't have that other ships have is a casino. Although the BF and I are big slots players we never missed it. We think we actually enjoy Disney more because the casino isn't there to tempt us away from all the other fun! We just set aside one hour at one port to gamble and then go about the rest of our vacation relaxing.
