For example, one "hot tip" points out that there's a "drink of the day" and that it is "often available at a special price". How about giving us a price range to expect? Castaway Cay is Disney's utopian private island, but this book provides only one small page that reads like an advertisement and tells you nothing new about it not described in any Disney brochure, and the remainder of the section describes Disney's excursions -- with the same level detail provided by Disney. How about telling us how long it takes to get off the ship? How about telling us a good way to carry passports, and if they're even needed to get off here? How about telling us if & where there are lockers and if so, are they readily available? Similarly for other ports of call, suggestions on what to expect from locals, how to deal with local transportation, timing, etc are all lacking.
On the ship information also reads like an advertisement and is sadly lacking. For example, Disney's wonderful shows are given in a theater that cannot possibly hold all of its guests. Is there advice on how early you must show up to get a good seat, and/or how often shows are given and when best to show up to make sure you don't miss a show that you were really hoping to see. Is there typically a wait for the Aquaduck, and if so, how long, and what time of day is best to miss lines, etc.
While I think Disney does a great job at entertaining, hence my interest in their cruises, I still think these types of questions are reasonable to ask and are not available in brochures, and a good guide would think to address them. This guide does not. So, if you're looking to read more of the same, you'll get the Disney's brochures repeated here. But if you're looking for practical information beyond a brochure, look elsewhere.
