    Wanting a cruise for a blended family of 6 without breaking the bank! The children's ages are 16 (boy) and 3 10 year olds (girl girl boy). Unsure of accommodations that would provide the most privacy on a cruise leaving Galveston for summer 2017.

    Ahoy there –

    Nothing makes me happier than helping a family figure out the best way to cruise with Disney, and I am especially happy when that family is planning to cruise the Wonder out of Galveston.  As native Texans, my pirate crew loves our annual cruise to visit with Captain Mickey and to reconnect together as a family. With a large family, there is a lot more planning involved, but I believe that you can find a good fit for your crew. Since you have 6 family members, you have the option of reserving 2 connecting staterooms or a suite to fit your family needs. The better pricing for your family by far would be to have 2 Inside Staterooms which would provide you with a total of 2 queen beds, 4 twin beds, and 2 bathrooms. There is a privacy curtain separating the queen and twin beds if desired. A Suite would fit your entire family, but the costs are much steeper. Also, there are no scheduled cruises out of Galveston in the Summer of 2017. The Wonder typically returns in the Fall and continues through January of the next year. One of the best ways to save money is to sail in the off-season, avoiding holidays and school breaks. Visit the Disney Cruise Line website for more details or call (800) 951-3532 if you need help booking a suite. Thanks for visiting with us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel!
