Why you should be booking a Disney Cruise

As I've just booked another cruise, sorry Disney parks but the cruises are taking over, I figured what a perfect time to tell you why you should be booking a cruise with Disney too. This will be my 5th cruise and I'll finally be ticking off my last ship, the Dream, now I know technically I've not done my 4th cruise or my 3rd ship but by the time I step aboard the Dream next January I will have.

Now I've never cruised with any other company so I can't compare Disney to them but I can tell you the amazing things about DCL, why you should pick them and things I do know the have over other cruise lines

Service - I have to start with a major one for me, the service is amazing, I mean like nothing I've experienced before. From the moment you step onboard, actually even before that you're treated amazingly and the cast members cannot do enough for you, from your main dining room team, stateroom host and everyone else around the ship going above & beyond everyday to make sure you're having the best experience possible. If you read my Fantasy come true posts, you'll know a little about how they went out of their way to do so much after my sisters case didn't make it to Florida with her, even though it had absolutely nothing to do with DCL themselves.

Soft drinks - Now I know most cruise lines don't include your drinks and you can buy soft & alcohol drinks packages but with Disney soft drinks are free, to an extent. As long as you're having them with meals or using the self service machines, you won't pay a penny for them

Staterooms - Having read up on a few other cruise lines I've noticed most standard staterooms are smaller than Disney's and especially when you're staying in an inside room this is a huge plus point, the more space the better and they are great at making the best use of every space, like under bed storage for you suitcases

Room service - this is another one I'm not sure about on other cruise lines but again, it's all included at no extra cost with Disney, so if you want breakfast delivered to your room so you can sit on your verandah and enjoy during that day or sea or get a little peckish late at night, better yet maybe you just want Mickey ice cream, you can even order those and it's all free

Formal/Casual as you like - Now I know one thing that puts some people off cruising is how formal they can be, personally I love any excuse to get dressed up so formal and semi formal evenings are my absolute favourites but if it's not your sort of thing then thats ok and you won't feel out of place at all because there's a definite mixture of both rather than noticeably a large amount dressed up or keeping things casual

Adults only sections - Now this is a HUGE factor and I mean huge for me, when you first think Disney you probably think lots of kids about but the one thing Disney does well is cater for everyone and that includes people who don't want to share every space with children. There's adults only pool and sunbathing areas, restaurant and bars

Castaway Cay - I know a couple of other cruise lines have their own private islands but I can't imagine any as fun and beautiful as Disney's, with a BBQ lunch at the beach (yep, all free), an adults only beach, tram to get you around, water slides, bike rentals, water tube rentals and you might even spot a character or two walking around if you're lucky

Fireworks - Had to leave the best till last but Disney Cruise line are the only ones out there who have fireworks at sea and I'm talking on every single sailing, how amazing is that? but would you expect anything else from Disney, no, me neither

Obviously I could go on and on about all the reasons why you should try out a cruise, especially with Disney Cruise Line but I don't want to spoil it all for you. Have you cruised before, either with Disney or another cruise line?
