    Thinking about a cruise to celebrate my in-laws 40th anniversary. There would be 9 adults, 5 cousins ages 4-10, plus 1 baby. Could we all sit together at meals? Any tips for finding deals? (cost is main issue) We need to travel around school schedules.

    Hi, Rebecca!

    A Disney cruise is an excellent choice for a family reunion/anniversary celebration!  If you have cruised before, you know that the best "deals" come the farther out you plan your vacation.  Therefore, whether you contact your local travel agent or Disney Cruise Line directly, you'll receive your best cruise fares the sooner you book.

    In addition to lower cruise fares, you can also get added incentives from travel agents or your local AAA office when you book a certain number of staterooms for a group -- you can get group events added on or perhaps shipboard credits.  Of course, the most popular times to cruise are usually when American schools are on breaks.  Therefore, you'll see cruise fares increase during these times.  A travel agent or a Disney Cruise Line travel specialist at (800) 951-3532 is going to be your best source of information as well as

    It is possible for your entire group to be seated together at dinner in the main restaurants. Obviously, quick-service meals by the pool or at the buffets are on a first-come, first-served basis, and you probably won't eat all those meals together anyway.  Make sure that your group is identified at dinner by linking your reservations, and then, you might want to double-check with Guest Services once you arrive on board to make sure that your tables are together. Best wishes on planning this wonderful adventure for you family -- it sounds like a fabulous trip!

    Let me know if I can answer more questions for you as you proceed with your planning. Have a wonderful day and a magical vacation. Bon voyage!
