    We are a family of 6 looking to go on a cruise sometime in December 2024. What would be the general cost of a 4-7 day cruise and where can I see all options?

    Ahoy there!

    We love to see new friends here at planDisney, so welcome! I love chatting about Disney Cruise Line with families and hope to help you as you dream up your vacation. Let's get started!

    The best way to discover more about your vacation possibilities, including stateroom selection, itineraries and price, is through the Disney Cruise Line website. There, you can browse the amazing itineraries under the Destinations tab. Once you select possible itineraries, you can browse finer details such as dates and staterooms at Find a Cruise under the Plan a Cruise tab. Since you would like to sail in December 2024, you can refine your search to that month and the length of the cruise to see all the options. Note that if you desire a Bahamian cruise, there are two ports you can depart from, Port Canaveral or Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale, which opens up more possibilities for you.

    Once you've selected the cruise itinerary, the "Select Your Stateroom" guide will help you choose the perfect stateroom option for your family. Most staterooms accommodate up to five Guests. With a family of six, you should either plan on two connecting staterooms or a Concierge Suite. Despite the amazing amenities of a concierge stateroom, when traveling with a large party I prefer to select two connecting rooms.

    The cost of your cruise will vary depending on the itinerary, stateroom, and dates selected. The fare is typically lower the earlier you book your cruise. Holiday-themed cruises are usually a little more expensive, but totally worth it if you love to celebrate Christmas, so keep that in mind as you select a December cruise. As you review fares, remember there are many amenities, loads of entertainment, even Room Service, your favorite Characters, and much more included in your Disney Cruise Line vacation.

    Have fun exploring your options! You will find the perfect cruise for your family, I'm sure! Feel free to sail by again and let us know if you have other questions as you plan; we are here to help!

    Wishing you many magical memories,

Hi! I'm a dreamer and doer who loves exploring the big blue world! My love for Disney began at Walt Disney World Resort and after my first Disney Cruise Line vacation I was hooked. I especially enjoy the ships' adult-exclusive spaces and activities while experiencing the magic only Disney can create. A Land and Sea vacation combining an action-packed Walt Disney World Resort visit and a relaxing Disney Cruise Line voyage is my favorite way to do Disney. I can't wait to help you create your magical memories! Learn More About Shannon
