    Hey, Ashley!

    Congratulations on your first cruise aboard Disney Cruise Line (DCL) next year -- I am excited for you! Prices for merchandise on board DCL is comparative to those at Walt Disney World (WDW).  To give you an idea, I paid approximately $50 for a nice fleece jacket with the Disney Dream embroidered on it. There was also a promotion (like WDW stores have) where if you purchased more than a certain amount of merchandise, you could purchase a great canvas DCL tote bag at a discounted price.

    For sundries, you will pay a premium for the convenience.  So, make sure you don't leave home without the essentials such as sunscreen or toothpaste. Also, it is required by maritime law for the shops on board to be closed while the ship is in port. Therefore, plan your shopping accordingly.

    I hope this helps! Have a wonderful day and a magical vacation. Bon voyage!
