I recently returned from a cruise on Disney Cruise Line’s newest ship, the Disney Dream! I was very excited for this cruise since we would be on the first cruise after the Maiden Voyage. I had followed the construction progress for months via the Meyer Werft website in Germany but seeing her in person would be wonderful.
I spent many years being afraid to cruise. My daughter finally guilted me into cruising several years ago. I could kick myself now for waiting so long. I mention this because I know many people that are afraid they are going to be sea sick or have other fears that keep them from cruising.
If you have never cruised you should enlist the aid of a good travel agent. It is also a good idea to find one that specializes in Disney. They are experts at handling all the details for a cruise and will be able to help you with all those questions you may have. A good travel agent will welcome your questions to help you have the best experience possible. You can cruise stress-free knowing that everything has been handled for you. You can start doing your research here if you are cruising for the first time.
One of the first concerns that people often have is where their room should be on the ship. The thinking used to be that the best place to be if you are concerned about motion sickness is mid ship. After my recent cruise on the Disney Dream I would put those worries away. The new ship is so rock solid that I think you no longer need to worry about your room location.
Disney also offers transfers from the airport or the Walt Disney World resorts if you are considering sailing from Port Canaveral in Florida. Once you check in for your cruise your luggage is handled for you. The next time you will see it is outside your room on the ship.
For many, the best part of a cruise is that it is all-inclusive, meaning almost everything is included in the cost of the cruise. Disney offers cruises from 3 – 10 days and they have special itineraries to foreign ports. You just need to decide what your budget will be. There are plenty of different room categories to choose from for your family. If you are planning a family reunion, cruising is a great way to spend some quality time together. It is so relaxing!
Stay tuned; in my next blog I will talk in more detail about my cruise on the new Disney Dream.
