    Hi i found my cruise dec16-Dec20 from tx i want to know can i pay monthly for my cruise?I paid down payment to hold already.Just trying see if i can call and pay $400 or what i want instead waiting till september 2019.how much gratuities?

    Welcome aboard, Fatima! Congratulations on booking your very first Disney Cruise Line vacation! Your whole family is in for magic from the moment you step on to the ship as the Cast Members announce your family name and applaud your arrival!

    But before then, it's planning time, right? Part of the planning is paying off the cruise, and I am really glad you stopped by with this question. The answer is yes! You can make payments each month or whenever you'd like by simply calling your travel agent or the Disney Cruise Line agents at 800-951-3532. In fact, that's what I do for my family's cruises. We pay a little here and there until it's paid in full. I don't want that lump sum hanging over my head for later in the year, so for my family, it's best to pay a bit at a time.

    Sometimes our local grocery store offers extra discounts on fuel (and we all need to fill up the car, right?), when we purchase gift cards through them. During the times they offer four times fuel rewards, I stock up on Disney Gift Cards and then call and use those toward my cruise costs. The agents at Disney are happy to accept my frequent calls to add Disney Gift Cards as payments to my cruise cost.

    Gratuities can also be pre-paid if you'd like. Check out this gratuities chart for the typical gratuities that guests pay to their Stateroom Host, Head Server, Dining Server and Assistant Dining Server.

    There is so much included in your cruise, you're in for a magical experience! Have so much fun planning this adventure at sea, Fatima, and please stop back with any other questions as you count down to the big sail date! We're happy to help!
