    How much money should I take to spend after I pay my cruise for other things never been in a cruise before and how much I have to take for tips

    Hello Yadirah,

    Thanks for sailing by!  How exciting that you are in the planning stages of a Disney Cruise Line voyage!  The anticipation of your first cruise is (almost) as much fun as the vacation itself.  One of the wonderful things about sailing with Disney is that you can budget for most expenses well in advance of your voyage.  In addition, your ship board expenses can be handled via a credit card that you pre-authorize to settle your account during online check-in.  This greatly reduces the amount of cash you need to carry.  In fact, on board, you won't use cash at all. Rather, all expenses incurred for any incidentals (souvenirs, alcohol, Port Adventures, gratuities) will be charged to your stateroom folio, which will be settled with the credit card you put on file.  I would bring cash for ports of call, souvenirs in those ports and any other shopping or dining you intend to do off the ship.  

    Have a magical voyage!
