    Hi, We’ve booked a 7 night eastern carribean cruise in 2019. We booked a standard ocean deluxe room (204 sq feet). Is it worth the extra $500 to book the slightly larger room with large porthole? We have two boys (will be 7 and 8 at time of cruise). Thanks

    Hi Marie!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Your upcoming cruise will be here before you know it! It's never too early to start planning for all the fun you're going to have onboard! One of my favorite things to do during the months leading up to our next Disney Cruise is look through the exciting Port Adventures offered at each port of call.

    Choosing a stateroom is such an important and fun part of the planning process! I'm happy to share my opinions with you! Every stateroom aboard Disney Cruise Line is spacious and designed with families in mind; your Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom is no exception! I think you and your pirate crew will be quite comfortable in the current stateroom you've selected. The one very neat design feature of the slightly bigger stateroom is that the porthole(s) is/are larger with built-in seating. If you have someone in your family who loves to read, that makes for a perfect reading nook!

    Marie, there will be so many activities happening on and around the ship throughout your cruise. Oftentimes, staterooms are occupied mostly at night when it's time for bed! I bet your boys will be loving the Youth Clubs during the day, watching movies in the Buena Vista Theatre as well as spending family time on deck splashing in the pools! Your stateroom, no matter which category you decide to choose, will be the perfect place to rest each evening in order to get ready for the fun-filled day ahead!

    If you have any other questions while you plan for your upcoming Disney Cruise to paradise, please don't hesitate to visit us again!
