    I'm starting to plan a cruise for my family, I'm in between a Western & Eastern. I never been on one and I'm feeling kind of overwhelmed with the planning. I have a 16,14 & 4 yr old. Any ideas or tips to help me? Do you leave the boat?

    Hi there, Danielle!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  You have come to the right place to get tips and help in planning what will be a wonderful adventure at sea for your entire family!  I am so excited that you are exploring the different options that Disney Cruise Line has to offer!  

    You definitely cannot go wrong with a Disney Cruise Line vacation!  Not only does your reservation include your room AND food but it also includes so much in the form of entertainment and activities. 

    You will most definitely want to disembark the ship at the ports of call you visit.  Port Adventures offers excursions fully scheduled and organized for you without you having to do anything other than reserve it and then show up!  I suggest looking at the options available at the different ports of call you are considering for each itinerary.  This will give you an idea as to if there is something that peaks the interests of your family and is a good way to narrow down the itinerary!
    Also take a look at the different ships traveling the itineraries you are considering.  They are ALL amazing and wonderful and offer most of the same opportunities, but if a Star Wars Day at Sea interests you, then you will want to look at the Fantasy.  If you prefer a smaller ship, the Magic or the Wonder are smaller while still offering the same amazing onboard experience!

    As you continue planning, please feel free to come back with any further questions!  Again, no matter what – you WON’T go wrong with a Disney Cruise vacation.

    Happy Sailing!
