    I want to plan a family reunion cruise; what is the best way to book and plan our trip, it would be for 20 people.

    Ahoy Vanessa - welcome to planDisney!

    Thanks for swimming by with your question. We love to help Guests just like you plan your very own, very magical, Disney adventures!

    What a fun idea! I think a Disney Cruise Line sailing would be an absolutely magical venue for a fun family reunion. On every ship, there is something for each and every person in your crew to enjoy, and it doesn't have to be a one-size-fits-all vacation. Perfect!

    Vanessa, when planning for a larger group I usually like using the services of a travel professional to help me navigate the process, but that choice is up to you! You can include multiple staterooms on a single reservation - up to five, in fact. So, if you think your crew will need five or fewer staterooms, you can follow instructions from the Disney Cruise Line website to reserve multiple staterooms on your own. If you think you might need more staterooms or want to talk through planning a bit, that's where I would definitely call and speak to a Disney Cruise Line Cast Member, or find a trusted travel professional.

    One tip that I'll pass along for planning a cruise with a large group is to keep in mind that you won't be able to include everyone in every plan, and that's OK. I suggest booking a variety of Onboard Experiences and Excursions for smaller groups, and then letting your crew decide where their day takes them! You'll all be able to sit nearby at a few tables for dinners at the Rotational Dining venues, so there will always be a big chunk of family time every evening. Why not shake things up a bit during the day?!

    I hope this information is helpful as you start your planning process. Your friends at planDisney are here every step of the way - stop by with additional questions any time!
