    Planning to take a Disney Cruise in September 2012 and, since my daughter is 6 years old, I don't know which is the best choice: eastern or western caribbean cruise? Could you help me "Moms"? Thanks a lot!

    Hi, Fernanda!

    Congratulations on considering a Disney Cruise Line vacation -- my family and I have never regretted any resources spent or any itineraries taken!  It really is a win-win decision-making process!

    When trying to choose between the Eastern and Western Caribbean itineraries, I would encourage you to take a look at the various ports of call and corresponding Port Adventures.  Both are going to be similar -- yet the difference (to me) is the variety of ports which are visited for the Western Caribbean.  Some guests like that sampler approach, and some would rather have a full experience of seeing all there is in one area like the Eastern Caribbean itinerary.  It really is what you prefer as a traveler.

    I hope this helps navigate you in the right choice for your family.  Let me know if I can offer you further advice. I'm here to help! Have a wonderful day and a magical vacation.

    Bon voyage,
