  1. I have always wanted to go on a Disney Cruise with my family. I think the kids would love it and would have the best time!

  2. Our family plans on eventually taking a Disney cruise. I live in Orlando, and even my local friends say it is still the best cruise they have ever been on. I love that there is stuff for little kids up to teens. My girls are 4 and 6 years old. I think they would really enjoy this, especially the food!

  3. I really have not looked into cruises as a vacation option because we do have a teen. I do think he would enjoy not being stuck with his parents and having other options. A Disney cruise may be something that would work for my family.

  4. I really want to do this with my family. The grandchildren would love this. Disney usually does things right. Thank you so much for sharing

  5. We have been wanting to go on a cruise. This sounds like the perfect cruise to take the grand kids with us they would have fun

    • Thank you for writing about DCL! Memories of Vibe came rushing back in 🙂 HIGHLY recommend going if you’re considering a trip, y’all! We stay Disney and Disney alone when it comes to cruises!

  6. If I were to go on my first cruise I’d probably do a Disney themed one. If I am going to be stuck at see in a giant boat with 1000s of people Mickey had better entertain me. 🙂
