What's your favorite part of your Disney Cruise. Mines is Pluto's dog house, (YUM) sports deck, Movie theater, shows and The Stack or Aloft. What's yours?

Sending the kids to the clubs :o the spa, sitting on the veranda and seeing all the new places without having to pack & unpack.

I've never been on one, but I'm going to agree with Figaro on this one... sending the kids to the spa is hands down the winner. :o

The difference with cruising on DCL versus anywhere else is the customer service

We just went on A Royal Caribbean cruise this past Spring and it was fantastic. We have cruised with Costa, Princess and Cunard in the past and have had great experiences. The food on Costa has been the best. That said, I definitely want to do a cruise with Disney. My wife is hesitant based on the higher costs. On the surface it looks like a 3-4 day cruise on Disney is equivalent in cost to a 7-day cruise on most of the other lines. Hopefully I'm wrong about that.

Unfortunately, that's about right. Most other lines are alot cheaper than Disney. We've been on Royal Caribbean and Carnival before and honestly, I would still rather go on Disney and pay extra. The customer service is the best, the kids clubs are awesome (I spend a good portion of the trip wishing I could go to some of their programs :o ) Personally, I like that there is no casinos, where I think the other lines are probably getting a lot of money from.

I'm hoping that once the 2 new ships come, the costs will stablize more. Right now DCL can charge higher rates because they still fill the ships they have.

While the cost of DCL tends to be higher than RCCL or Carnival, I don't feel like Disney "nickle and dimes" you as much as the other two. All that being said, I do like cruising with RCCL but wont touch Carnival with a 10 foot pole.

The same argument could be made that WDW resort rooms are 2-3x the cost (and sometimes more) than other off-site rooms. You pay more, you get more in return, IMO.
