Default Convince Me ...

Ok... I've always wanted to cruise Disney. I'm a DL annual passholder that lives in NorCal. Been on a few cruises. But never Disney. Please give me all your great reasons for sailing Disney.

The service is far above other lines we have done.
CM's are friednly and polite
ships are spotless considering their age
Shows are all family apropriate

Love the movie theater, many ships don't have those.

Food is very good.
Rotational dining is great. You dont get tired of the same old place to eat.

I personally love the characters too, I am a kid on the inside.


Pop is free at all restaurants and the 24 hour drink station where other liens charge you. If you order any beverage from a roaming waiter or in the theater you will then be charged. But we just grab a free drink at the drink station and take it with us.


also once they ask if you want a drink by the pool the dont keep bugging you and they are never pushy like other lines we have been on.

Plenty of activities all day to do for every age.
On other lines Bingo and trivia was about it unless you wanted to gamble in the casino.

Just the over all attitude is wonderful. They always make us feel at home when we cruise DCL.

It really is hard to explain the Disney difference but the level of service and high level of talent of their entertainment is just awesome.

Just my opinion.

We are about to leave for our 20th DCL cruise.
7 days WOO HOO!!
You can go to the DCL website and order a free dvd about the cruise which may help you.

I would really love going on a Disney cruise but the fare is just outrageous. I could do the same itinerary on a different cruiseline for hundreds of dollar less.

DCL is much more expensive.
I went on a special and saved a lot.
It can be done on the cheap but you have to look for the specials.

I think you will find that the DCL experience is above par. The organization, service, decor, shows, food are up to Disney standards.

I loved my Disney cruise.

Hello Carol,
We booked the 4 day wonder in 07 as a special treat to two teenage Grandaughters and now booked again for the DREAM in April 2011. As I stated we thought this to be "for the kids" and it was but we soon found the inner child in us tucked away was brought forth once more! Just to smile and feel that giddy fun was such a delight. To see children enjoy in a way we never did as Disney Cruise did npot exist nor did cruises for "the average" folks. You'd have to go and let your inner child out .......then report back.
