    My family and I are looking to do something different, other than going to the parks, by doing a cruise. We have never been on any type of cruise before. We were wondering what is the best type of cruise for someone who is never been on one before?

    Hi, Jessica - 

    Thanks for visiting the Moms Panel. I'm so glad that you're checking out potential Disney Cruise voyages for your family. Cruising is a wonderful way of vacationing, and sailing with Disney just makes it even better. The world class Disney quality shines through in every inch of the ship, and I think you'll be quite amazed by how much entertainment is offered on board. 

    I encourage you to check out the different cruise planning tools available for request. When my family and I were considering to go on our very first cruise, we went for a short 3-night voyage to the Bahamas on the Disney Cruise. It was a great introduction to cruising, and it allowed us to get a taste of the different activities that kids and adults could experience while on the Disney Cruise. It was enough to get us hooked! As any first time cruiser, I wasn't sure how we would all do on a big ship. I was really glad to discover that our whole family had no problems with sea sickness. It was a great adventure for everyone - we ended up loving the Youth Clubs of course. I highly encourage one of the voyages that visits Castaway Cay, Disney's private island. That's an all time favorite destination, and you can only get there if you sail with Disney. We were also very impressed by the high quality of service that was extended to us all over the ship. There's so much attention to quality and service, that you'll likely be wanting to book your next cruise while you're on board :-). There's just way too many things to do on these magical ships.

    If you check out the link to Find a Cruise, you can see the different cruise destinations and dates of voyages. The site will give you an idea of pricing, depending on your filter choices and you can also explore the different Disney ships.

    Hope this helps!
