I'm shopping other cruise lines to broaden my perspective.
Princess is cruising out of SanFrancisco. I find this irresistible.
After paying for Disney a few times Carnival looks to be a huge savings. I can almost pack up 4 extra friends for the trip
It's hard to forget the tears of my 13 year old not wanting to leave the Disney cruise! The rotational dining brings the service level up a notch too.
It has never taken more than 2 meals for the waiters to have my needs down pat. Ice tea. No sugar Keep it full. I know this shouldn't be tough but it seems to be tough for some waiters.
I have my next cruise in just over a year.
After that one,Disney Fantasy 7 days in the carribian, I'm going either princess or carnival. Unless Disney sets up embarkation in SanFrancisco then all bets are off.
