Default Disney Cruise lines Q's?

Hi all,

I was wondering, does anyone have any advice good or bad, about Disney cruise lines? My partner and I want to take our god-son on vaccation and we LOVE to cruise. We are looking for a line that is accepting, but that will also entertain breeders (his parents may come along )as well as a four year old boy. If anyone has any input, maybe a personal story here or there we would love to hear it!

Thanks!
Kris & Gel

Kris and Gel,
I've cruised with DCL many times. It's a great ship and does offer a variety of entertainment for adults as well as kids. However, there IS more for kids. There is NO casino on either one of their ships, if that's a concern. They gym is nice, but VERY small. They have a wonderful area called the Tropical Rain Forest room that has a variety of steam rooms and showers...BUT...this area is co-ed. There are separate dry saunas and showers in the Men's and Women's changing areas. There is also a nice reservation-only supper club called Pollo's for an additional charge...usually no kids here. The other dining rooms (3 main dining rooms that you rotate between each night) are very nice, unique, and have good service and fairly good food. There are 3 clubs (bar/dance areas) that are adult-only and a pool area that is adult-only. There is also a "family" pool area and a children's-only Mickey Mouse pool. I've also been to a lot of "Private Islands" owned/operated by different cruise lines, but have NEVER been to one as nice as Disney's Castaway Cay. It's beautiful and full of things to do or nothing at all and just relax on the beach (Of course, weather is a factor depending on which month you sail). If you are just doing a 3 or 4-night cruise, I would suggest waiting until the Spring (March, April, or May) so you can expect warmer weather in the Bahamas.
Hope all this rambling helps out a bit. Have a great Monday!

DCL would be a good choice, but I would go with RCCL first. If for no other reason than cost. Both will have plenty to do, and you and your partner would be comfortable on either, but DCL is just too expensive for what they offer. I would look at one of RCCL's older Voyager class ships. Voyager, Explorer, or Adventure since they are the ones that offer kids pool area with the slide and the whole bit. My 6yo did like to pool area better on DCL(they are freshwater vs. saltwater), but overall he liked our RCCL cruises better because of the kids program.

Very welcom, Kris. Let us know which vacation you choose. I'd love to hear how it goes. I'm sure you will enjoy either one. RCCL is my favorite overall. Have a great day!
