ok so we got that Disney Itch again, but this tume my DH mentioned a cruise.  I want to know your experiences with the cruise, did you get sick, did you feel the boat move.  AS you can tell, I have a boat phobia...is A disney cruise worth it or just going to the park...thanks ahead of time

I've been on a cruise , but not a Disney cruise. I got sea sick because there was a hurricane on its way. My mother-in-law went on a Disney cruise and loved it!

I have been on 16 cruises. 3 with kids and not one have been disney. Out of the 16 I got sick one night during hurricane season. There have been other times I have felt queasy but walking around and getting some fresh air clears it right up.

As for a Disney cruise they are substantially more than other cruise lines so it a preference. I would rather do two other cruises than one disney or do real disney and a cruise.

You don't need passports of you are departing from and arriving to the same ports. So if you are leaving from port C and coming in there you can use a birth certificate. We just cruised in August and only hubby and I have passports. We have sailed NCL, RCCL and carnival this way. This is from NCL's website;

Caribbean, Bahamas, Bermuda, Alaska, Mexican Riviera, Or Canada & New England Cruises

For round-trip sailings (cruises that depart from and return to the same U.S. port), you may sail with either a valid passport, proof of citizenship and a valid government-issued photo I.D. (driver’s license with a photo), or any other WHTI compliant document.

Proof of Citizenship examples include:

State certified U.S. birth certificate
Original certificate of U.S. naturalization
Original certificate of U.S. citizenship

Also make sure you factor in tips, port parking (if you need) and price shore excursions. They can add up quickly.

yeah those costs too,  it is really $$$$ so we are just in talks right now, and plus it looks as if you cannot choose your exact dates, which is understandable....
