This is by far the most comprehensive guide to Disney Cruise Line that I've been able to find. The best part of this book is the sheer amount of detail on everything from ports of call and shore excursions, to on board dining menus to customs.

That having been said, I could have done without a lot of the "cutesy" wordplay found throughout the book. The puns and jokes involving Disney-related terms became cloying after a while. It's fine to have fun with a reader, but ultimately, I am reading this type of book for information, not for entertainment.

Also, the photos in the book are next to worthless. A lot of them feature the Marx family - notably, their adorable son, Alexander. But the extent that the Marxes figure into the photos makes it almost like we're looking at family vacation photos, not informational photos to help us plan our trip. Also, many of the pictures are small and dark, making it difficult to make out detail on the ship feature the photo is supposed to highlight. I suggest future editions should include better photo quality either embedded in the text, or separately in a full-color insert.

In all, this is really the *only* book you need in prepping for a DCL trip (don't waste your money on the official Birnbaum book). I honestly cannot think of a topic that isn't covered at some level. It's the closest you'll get to a DCL version of Sehlinger/Testa's "Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World), and I mean that as the highest compliment.

I have Passporter's guide for Walt Disney World and really enjoyed it, so I got the Disney Cruise Line version and I am disappointed. I know Disney added more ports (for disembarkment and destinations), new itineraries, and news ships so I give the authors some credit for trying to cover all the changes. I found it was very overwhelming and crammed in sections where they were talking about rooms or features on the ships and they would combined the Wonder/Magic and Dream/Fantasy all in the same blurb- spewing facts and figures about about both in the same breath. Maybe if the Wonder/Magic and then the Dream/Fantasy were covered in their own sections it would have read as less technical. I love Disney facts and info, and I still felt like this book was throwing way too much in. Here's a quote about category 10 staterooms from page 132: "The 96/19 category 10 staterooms occupy four/five decks: 1,2,5, and 7/5-9." The older ships are so different from the new ships that it would be much easier to read the sections about staterooms, dinning, and onboard activities if they were separated out.

Hate is not a word I use often but it really is the only way to sum up my feelings about this book! I have been waiting over 6 months to buy the 10th edition and finally gave up and purchased the 9th edition even though it would have no information about the Galveston Port. I did however expect this book to at the very least be similar to other Passporter Guide books- high quality pages, color, detailed ect. Instead this book is all black and white, cheap paper, no pockets. 100% confusing about which ship anything is on. Why can there not be a clear section for each ship? I am so angry that i just flushed $20 down the toilet and this lousy book!

I got this book hoping it would cover the 2012 cruise line but it does not cover the ports of call or the new ships that well for 2012. I thought being published in late 2011 it would have covered 2012. I guess you have to wait until end of 2012 to find out what already happened. Great info after the fact for ships and trips if you do not need much info on the new ships or ports of call good book up dated info I do not know who to recommend
