Maybe this shouldnt be posted for Carnival but does anybody know why Disney cruises are so freaking expensive? Its almost double any other mainstream line... is it cuz theres only 2 ships or maybe its trademarked? Just curious..
No revenue from a casino. Fewer pax on the ship. Higher demand.

We took a Disney cruise and a Carnival cruise. Disney is more expensive, plus it is ten fold that of the Carnival cruise we took. Dont get me wrong, Carnival is alot of fun and a great bang for your buck...but it doesn't compare. At Disney everything was top notch from the trim on the ship to the soap in the shower...lol The food was top notch, the crew was awesome (always friendly and ALWAYS stopped to say HI and make sure you were well taken care of.) The entertainment was as if you were at the theme park. Fireworks at night, character appearances, broadway shows, free beverages even soda. Thier island Castaway Cay was awesome. A paradise for young and old alike. They have thier own 15 acre snorkeling area with lifeguards and suncken statues of disney characters...I cant say enogh about how Disney was. If you have ever been to the theme parks, the Cruise ship adventure is ten fold the parks.
Remember-Disney cruise lines are geared toward families with young children.
