Disney Cruise[1] ships sail to Alaska and the Pacific Coast, Bahamas, Caribbean, Mexican Riviera, Canada and New England in a variety of lengths. Depart from one of six ports including Galveston, TX; Los Angeles; New York City; Port Canaveral, FL; Seattle; and Vancouver, British Columbia. Prices vary depending on point of embarkation, length and date of trip, type of stateroom[2] and destination.

Typical costs:

  • Seven-night Alaska and the Pacific Coast[3] cruises typically cost $917-$2,660 per person, double occupancy, for a stateroom without a verandah. Rooms with an adjoining deck start at $1,709 and increase to $10,059 for the Royal Suite[4] .
  • Bahamian cruises[5] are available in several packages. Three-night cruises cost $471-$1,107 or $588-$5,859 including a verandah. Four-night adventures cost $627-$1,476, or $784-$7,812 with a deck. Eight-night cruises are priced at $1,240-$3,040 or $1,920-$11,496 with verandah.
  • Caribbean[6] cruises last seven nights and cost $770-$2,660, or $1,113-$10,059 with verandahs.
  • A seven-night Mexican Riviera[7] event is priced $658-$2,660 or $1,113-$10,059 with a deck.
  • Canada and New England[8] trips sail five nights and cost $715-$1,900 or $1,100-$7,185 including verandah.
  • Parking varies by port[9] , typically costing about $45-$105 for a seven-night cruise.

What should be included:
  • Packages typically include 24-hour room service and shipboard dining[10] with options from adult inclusive, casual, buffet, main formal dining and quick service--exclusive of alcoholic beverages.
  • Gyms for adults are available on all ships. Selected ships offer teen workout and spa areas.
  • Youth clubs separate children into compatible age groups--children 3-10, 'tweens" 11-13 and Teens 14-17. Activities vary daily.
Additional costs:
  • Cocktails, beer and wine are served at the bars and dining rooms throughout the ship and are not included in the ticket price. Wine may be about $6 or more per glass, while cocktails could cost $4-$10 each. Ask servers for the prices on the "drinks of the day," which may be considerably less. A bar bill will appear in the stateroom on the last night of the cruise, with a 15% gratuity included.
  • Group baby sitting[11] in the nursery for children up to 3 years costs $6 per hour. Space is limited, so booking well in advance of the cruise date is recommended.
  • While onboard dining experiences are included in the cruise, gratuities are typically taken care of on the last day of the cruise when envelopes for servers from room service to waiter to assistant waiter will be left in the stateroom. On a seven-day cruise, expect to tip[12] about $63 per person.
  • Onshore activities[13] vary from snorkeling to rental cars to guided tours. Prices are set locally and many of the tours may be purchased and scheduled onboard to avoid currency exchange and itinerary changes.
  • To avoid packing several days worth of diapers or other baby products, they may be delivered to the stateroom before arrival through Babies Travel Lite[14] . One week's worth of diapers in size 3--including wipes and disposable bags--cost about $105 plus $10 in shipping to a West Coast embarkation point or about $20 to the East Coast. Changing pads and other nursery items may be borrowed from the ship.
Discounts:
  • Military discounts[15] -- about $130-$200 per night, depending on the cruise and its duration -- are often available. Check with the cruise line for up to date offers.
  • Online specials vary by season and destination and may include onboard credit[16] , or deals on specific cruise dates. Residents living near any of the six embarkation points may be offered online deals on specific cruises.
  • AAA[17] or CAA members who book vacation packages through a AAA/CAA Travel Agency may receive benefits of $50 per inside stateroom or $100 per outside stateroom that may be in the form of onboard credit or shore excursions. Promotions change regularly, so check with a travel agent for current offers[18] .
Shopping for a disney cruise:
  • Cruises may be booked directly through Disney Cruise Line[19] .
  • A free cruise planning guide[20] is available through Disney Cruise Line.
