    My family (2 adults, 1-2 yr old) wants to go on an Alaska cruise . We have many families (same family size, age of kid) joining us - and sharing rooms. What are the sleeping accomodations for toddlers? Do they count in the head count for the "sleeps 7

    Hi, Jessica!

    Congratulations on considering an Alaskan cruise aboard Disney Cruise Line (DCL) -- you are going to be amazed at this family adventure vacation aboard the luxurious Disney Wonder!

    The short answer to your question is yes -- children of any age are considered in the "head count" aboard DCL. Of course, the younger they are, the less expensive their cruise fare is, but every guest receives transportation and services provided by the ship. Plus, for safety and security reasons, everyone must be accounted for while on board.

    In your planning, I think you'll be better off getting quotes on several staterooms instead of trying to squeeze several families in a few suites. Most of the time, you can get a group discount on booking staterooms at the same time -- but rarely does one ever receive any cost break on booking a concierge suite. Of course, if you want the experience of enjoying the common areas of the suites together, then the cost may not be as much of a factor for you. Either way, I hope this helps you plan.

    I'm taking this cruise with DCL next write back  later this summer if you have more pointed questions about the itinerary, and I'd be happy to share my experience with you. Have a wonderful day and a magical vacation. Bon voyage!
