    We're looking into a 5night Disney Cruise, June 2010. DS will be 7 & DD 11. I'm not sure I want them off in the kids clubs a lot--I want family memories. Can they do SOME of the activities? Is there a way to know which activities will be happening when

    I felt the same way before our first Disney cruise. Then I realized that Disney, of course, brings families together.

    You'll absolutely be able to choose from the countless activities that are available for everyone. Each evening, you'll return to your stateroom to find not only your cabin magically transformed for a restful night but a Personal Navigator awaiting your perusal. This guide will list the next day's activities. I like to take a highlighter to keep us organized!

    A Disney cruise is a "no compromise" vacation. You'll have time to savor together during movies, shows, pool time, meals or shore excursions.

    Then there will be times that parents will want to attend a wine tasting, enjoy the spa or sip a coffee in the Cove Cafe. There will also be times that the kids want to make Flubber in the Oceaneer Lab or meet Captain Hook in the Oceaneer Club. Coordinating your activities is easy with the use of the Personal Navigator. Google "personal navigator disney cruise" for examples!

    On our first cruise, I admit that we stopped in many times to look in on our son in the Oceaneer Club. Each time we witnessed our son having the time of his life. When we picked him up, he would tell us about grand adventures that he shared with his peers. The programs for children are magical experiences. My son has gone on Kim Possible adventures, worn a scientist lab coat while making Flubber, made a batch of chocolate chip cookies, met Disney characters and danced with pirates!

    There is nothing like sitting together at dinner and sharing your stories about your individual adventures then attending a show together. There is plenty of time to share together! But there are amazing activities for parents to enjoy alone and kids will discover magical opportunities only available aboard a Disney ship.

    It's the best of both worlds. Lots of individual fun mixed with precious family togetherness!
