Go Disney – On A Cruise

Many parents can't wait to take their baby or toddler on a trip to an amusement park. We think theme parks are great ideas for family vacations. But until babies are older, they're really for parent's enjoyment. One alternative to visiting Mickey at the theme park is to go on a Disney Cruise. Granted, you could be paying a grand more than you would on other ships for a week long cruise, but the level of service and amenities on Disney Cruise ships keep it booked solid, according to an article in a recent Frommers newsletter. Disney cruises have virtually something for every parent, from a 3 night Bahamas cruise to 14 night Transatlantic journey that'll take you to Spain.

These are just a few of the features you can expect to get when you sail with Mickey:

  • Art Deco Style cabins that give you some of the largest square footage around. Their outside cabins boast 214 square feet of space while you'd be lucky to get 200 square feet of space on another cruise line's comparable cabin.
  • Toddlers under three years old can go with a parent to play on a jumble sized pirate ship.
  • Ships have a shallow pool area for toddlers and babies in swim diapers while other cruise lines do not.
  • Everyone gets to experience life sized Disney characters on board like Mickey, Minnie, and Goofy
  • Themed family friendly restaurants, including one modeled after a parrot jungle.
  • Separate entertainment just for grown-ups such as a comedy club and piano bar.
  • Disney character musical productions the whole family can enjoy.
  • Shorefront drop off to a private island for Disney cruise ship patrons.
