As you walk into the hotel lobby, you are immediately greeted by low ceiling, wooden floors, and the smell of wood polish, which all add to the ambience of luxury and being on a ship. The hotel is very cleverly themed, with nautical carpets, grand staircases, and port holes throughout.
The rooms are light, airy, and decorated in a blue-and-white nautical theme. The rooms offer either two double beds or one double bed (you can select which when you book, and Disney will normally guarantee your request), as well as the usual TV.
The rooms offer the usual things, such as minibar and an in-room safe, which I always like to lock money and passports away. It is a combination safe, so you don't even have to carry a key around with you, which is handy, and the instructions to programme the safe are relatively simple.
The hotel also has an Admiral's Floor, which has the same hotel rooms, but with extra services, such as a private reception and private car park.
The hotel has two bars, Captain's Quarter and Fisherman's Wharf. As they both service the same drinks and offer attentive service, I would suggest the Fisherman's Wharf over the Captain's Quarters, as it offers great evening views over Lake Disney that are perfect for relaxing in front of!
Continental breakfast is included in the price of your package, and you can purchase hot breakfast items in addition to these if you wish. You need to reserve the time you wish to eat breakfast the day before, which can help you to plan your day, although I find it a bit restricting on holiday! Breakfast is usually available from 6:30am until 10am
The hotel has two restaurant, the first being Cape Cod, which offers a wonderful range of fish dishes from around the world surrounded by a maritime and marine background. The service in this restaurant was exceptional, and the food was lovely (albeit you pay for what you get!). I ate swordfish, which was beautifully cooked and presented. My only criticism here is that the tables are quite small in this restaurant and don't leave much room for wine, etc. on the table.
Like the other hotels, the hotel offers a pool (indoor and heated) themed around a ship. This pool is quite large and does get quite busy, but is quieter during the day and in the evenings if you wish to swim without playing. There is also a Jacuzzi, sauna, steam bath, and fitness room, and you can pay locally to use the solarium and enjoy a massage.

The cast members working at the Concierge desk and reception were very helpful. The hotel itself is very impressive from the outside. Its theme is based on an old English mansion. The hotel has 1093 bedrooms and when it is full has a few thousand guests staying each night.
You have a choice of 2 restaurant to eat at: the Cape Cod and Yacht Club. I would recommend that families with young kids use the Cape Cod restaurant as the Yacht Club specializes in seafood. Make sure that you book your breakfast early as everybody wants to be in the park for 9:00am, which means that everybody wants breakfast from 8:00am to 8:30am. The same goes for booking dinner reservations; make sure you do it early.
The bedrooms are very nice. Most of the rooms have 2 double beds, a bathroom, television and a minibar. If you want to use the minibar you will have to leave a copy of your credit card with reception. One thing that you would expect from a 3 & 4 star hotel and don’t get would be tea and coffee making facilities in each room. If you want to make tea and coffee you have to purchase a hamper from reception. I would have expected to have this included in the price of the room.
At the concierge desk you can book babysitters that will stay with your kids in the room while you are out having fun. If you need anything taken care of, the concierge desk is the place to go.
If you are staying for a few days in Disney, why not take in a day trip to Paris where you will get to see all the sights. If you do not want to make your way into Paris by yourself you can always pass by the Concierge desk and purchase tickets for a guided coach tour. The coach will stop along the way to allow you take in the sights.
