    We just booked a cruise for the end of Jan on Disney Wonder. I have never been on a cruise before and I am not sure what is not included in the price of the cruise. What extra's do I need to plan for as far as bringing extra money? (Tips, food, etc.)


    Ahoy Kacey!


    Your family will absolutely love sailing on the beautiful Disney Wonder! Once you've paid the cruise fare in full, you've covered the majority of your onboard expenses. Here is what's included in the basic price of your cruise. However, there are a few exceptions for which you might want to budget additional money. These are noted below:


    1. Alcoholic beverages, smoothies, specialty coffee drinks, and a few food room service items
    2. Dining at either Remy or Palo (be sure to make reservations in advance)
    3. Any treatments at the Senses Spa & Salon (pricing varies according to treatments)
    4. Port Adventures & Shore Excursions, which may be reserved and paid for prior to cruising
    5. Pre-packaged snacks at the Buena Vista Theatre and the Walt Disney Theatre
    6. Photos purchased from Shutters Photography Services
    7. Expenses incurred at Quarter Masters
    8. Internet Usage and Phone Calls
    9. Gratuities & Tips
    10. Hair Braiding
    11. Souvenirs


    I personally budget anywhere between $500 to $1000 to cover the above expenses. However it will mostly depend on the activities your family will wish to experience during the cruise. Please let me know if I can answer any other questions for you.


    Enjoy a most magical sailing with Disney Cruise Line! Bon Voyage!
