There are some great deals being offered by Disney Cruise Lines at the moment. These are some of the best deals I have seen in a long time. So if you are tempted to sail with Mickey Mouse then this is your chance!

There are two Disney Cruise ships – the Disney Magic and the Disney Wonder. Both usually sail out of Port Canavarel – just a short distance from Walt Disney World making it idea for land and sea vacation combinations.
So what are the current special deals?
If you book a 4 or 7 night Disney cruise during select nights this winter you can take a 3-Night Bahamian Cruise in fall 2009 for only $99 per person based on double occupancy. So not only can you enjoy one great Disney cruise but you get to go back again!
Disney Cruise Lines are also offering round-trip airfare of $199 per person from select airport locations east of the Mississippi when you book a 7-Night Caribbean Cruise or 7-Night Land and Sea Vacation starting in January 2009.
There are limitations to each offer of course but whichever way you look at it I think these are still great deals and may be the excuse you were looking for to finally go ahead and book that Disney cruise!
Are Disney cruises just for kids? Well Disney certainly provides for the grown ups just as much as the kids! There are several areas on the ships which are reserved just for adults, and they even have their own beach on Castaway Cay. If you travel as a family then the kids will be well taken care of in the Oceaneers Club. Disney really is about everyone in the family having the chance to do exactly what makes them happy. Quality family time with some alone time too!
You will never be at a loss for something to do on a Disney cruise. There really is something for everyone. The one thing that you won’t find on the Wonder or the Magic though is a casino. Disney took the decision not to allow gambling on it’s ships. This is something that personally I prefer. Although I love cruising, walking through the smoky casino on most ships is not something that I enjoy!
The entertainment on board is exactly how you would imagine it to be. Of a fabulously high Disney standard. A favorite is the new Toy Story show which is not to be missed if you are sailing on Disney Wonder.
I am looking forward to the new Disney Cruise Ships due to sail in 2011 and 2012. Disney have commissioned 2 new ships which are going to be even larger, and no doubt, even better than the Magic and the Wonder. There is a lot of speculation on where they will be based but I am guessing that at least one has to be on the West Coast and will have Mexican Riviera and Alaska itineraries. Purely speculation of course, but I would guess the other would go to Europe. What I do know is that I want to be one of the first on those new Disney ships!
