Here are the ten cheapest (per night) cruises you can take with two adults and two children in a concierge stateroom as of October 6, 2017.  Lots of good choices on the older ships.  There are no sailings on the new ship in the top ten.  You’ll also notice none of these seem to match up with any school breaks.

Disney Cruise, Travel Cost

Here are the ten cheapest (per night) cruises you can take with two adults and two children in an inside stateroom as of October 6, 2017.  The list has moved around a little bit.  Lots of good choices on the older ships.  Nothing breaks the top ten on the new ships.  I actually wonder what will happen with the sailings to San Juan from New York and the ones out of San Juan.  Hopefully the port and city will be back up and operational.  It is one of our favorite places to visit!… Read the rest

Here are the ten cheapest (per night) cruises you can take with two adults and two children in an inside stateroom as of September 4, 2017.  The list has moved around a little bit.  Lots of good choices on the older ships.  The newer ships only offer one Fantasy sailing in October, which isn’t too far away!  Note: These prices don’t reflect any of the changes due to Hurricane Irma.… Read the rest

Here are the ten cheapest (per night) cruises you can take with two adults and two children in an Verandah stateroom as of September 4, 2017.  The list has moved around a little bit.  Lots of good choices on the older ships.  The Dream finally makes an appearance in this list for some 4 night Halloween on the High Seas sailings!  I imagine those must not be filling up, so they are now discounted.  Note: These don’t reflect any price increases that have occurred based upon the canceled cruises due to Hurricane Irma.… Read the rest

Disney Cruise, Travel

Of course, the highs of being on the cruise always come crashing down on Disembarkation day.  We decided to carry our bags off the ship with express walk off, but still enjoy breakfast.  We left our room and headed towards Animators Palette, which is where we had dinner the night before.  Since we had late dinner, our breakfast was at a reasonable time. 

After breakfast, we collected our bags and headed off the ship to wait in the Customs line.  We were through Customs rather quickly, then onto the bus to head back to the airport.  We handed over our bags to the bus driver, who placed them under the bus.  The ride back to the airport was uneventful and we collected our bags again once we got to the airport.… Read the rest

Disney Cruise

Day 3 of our cruise was Castaway Cay, which is one of our favorite stops.  Imagine if Disney had taken an entire Caribbean Island and turned it into a water park.  That’s basically how I describe Castaway Cay to people.  We aren’t beach people, but we love this port stop more than any others.  We had managed to grab the last Cabana on the family beach (Cabana #20) when we checked in for this cruise, so it was going to be a great day.  We invited our friends to enjoy the Cabana with us, since there was no additional charge for six people versus four people.… Read the rest

Day 2
Day 2

The day started early with the Disney Dream pulling into Nassau.  We’ve been to Nassau on previous cruises, but we had always treated it like a sea day and stayed on the ship.  Because we were traveling with friends, we came up with a new approach.  Nancy and our oldest daughter wanted to get off the ship and walk around with our friends, while I would stay on the ship with our youngest daughter.… Read the rest
