One thing not mentioned is the debarkation. We've heard many times how poorly passengers are treated on other lines when it's time to leave. Once the tip envelopes are handed out, it's "Get outta here!" On Norwegian, we were dumped into a stuffy and hot lounge until we were finally cleared to go. All employees were ok beforehand, but that last morning we were treated like cattle. Disney ships also carry that impression of something extra to the world that makes other people wish that they were onboard. We've been blessed to have gone on two European cruises, and people in the ports, and people from other boats, yearn to be on the Disney ship. It looks nicer, more fun, more artistic, and somehow more monumental than other ships in the harbor. We've even had salesclerks in Dubrovnik and St. Petersburg show off our Disney Credit Card to co-workers. Does that impression mean anything? I don't know, but if I were in port on another ship next to a Disney ship, I'd be jealous. You just have to think that something better is happening over on that ship that doesn't look like a tipped over milk carton.
