    We are planning a cruise with a large group. Many have asked me what will cost extra. Besides alcohol and excursions, what does cost extra?

    Ahoy, Kimberly!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Embarking on a Disney Cruise with a large group of people is so much fun! There is so much included in the price of your Disney Cruise Line cruise! However, there will be some things that do carry an additional charge. It's great that your pirate crew is thinking ahead about anything that may cost extra.

    Besides Port Adventures and alcoholic beverages (or specialty drinks), photographs taken by the professional photographers, laundry services, adult-only dining in Palo or Remy, spa treatments at Senses Spa & Salon and babysitting services in "it's a small world" nursery! are all an additional price. I also recommend budgeting for customary gratuities (which will be charged to your stateroom account the last day of your voyage) as well as cash tips for the Cast Member delivering your complimentary Room Service and for any Port Adventure Guides during your exciting excursions. Royal Court, Royal Tea and royal transformations at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique carry an additional cost, as well. Oh! Don't forget to budget a little extra for the souvenir treasures found while shopping in all the wonderful stores onboard, too!  

    Disney Cruise Line ships are cashless, so any purchases made onboard will be paid for with your "Key to the World" card and will show up on your stateroom folio. All charges made to your "Key to the World" card will be settled with either a credit card or cash depending on how you set up your onboard account during Online Check-in. You can ask to see a copy of your stateroom folio at any time by visiting Guest Services during your voyage!

    Please sail back again and ask any future questions while you continue to plan for your epic adventure at sea!
