    1. When a deposit is placed for a cruise, does it lock you into the final cruise price quoted? If the price drops between deposit and the cruise date will my final rate be the lower cost?

    Welcome aboard, Jamie!

    One of the things I love best about a Disney Cruise Line vacation is all that is included in the price. I like to think of it as an all-inclusive Disney vacation at sea! 

    When you select a cruise and pay your deposit, you don’t have to worry about the price increasing and owing more. You are locked into the price when you book the reservation. If an existing reservation is modified, you will be responsible for any additional deposit due, if applicable. If the price drops before the paid-in-full date, you can call Disney Cruise Line, and they can adjust the rate for you. 

    This past summer, I booked a European Disney Cruise and found a cheaper Guaranteed Rate. Since it was before my paid-in-full date, I called Disney Cruise Line, and they were able to cancel my current reservation and rebook my family for this discounted rate. Guaranteed Rates come with restrictions. You can’t pick your stateroom number or your location on the ship, but you can select a stateroom category. In my case, I was guaranteed a verandah stateroom. I received my stateroom number a few weeks before our sailing and was very happy with the location. These special rates are only offered on select sailings. 

    I hope this information helps as you start planning your Port Adventures. I like to look at the excursions offered on the Disney Cruise Line website so that when my booking window opens, I have an idea of what I want to reserve. If you have any more questions, please sail back to us. We are happy to help!

    SEAS the adventure!

Ahoy! Just like Moana, I feel the irresistible call of the sea. I think the best vacation is aboard a Disney Cruise Line ship – thankfully, my family agrees. Whether savoring gelato in Italy, snorkeling in Mexico, or basking in the sea breeze on deck, each destination fills us with memories to last a lifetime. I look forward to helping your family plan a Disney Cruise Line adventure brimming with cherished moments!
