I saved every receipt — here’s how much it actually costs to go on a Disney cruise

Megan duBois

One of the best things about cruising is that you can pay for a cruise months in advance, forget how much it costs, and then board the ship on embarkation day blissfully ignorant of how much you paid to get there and ready for vacation spending.

While I'm not one to keep a tally of every dollar I spend on trips, it's sometimes nice to know exactly how much I've spent, down to booking a hotel the night before a cruise, drinks on board the ship and purchases in port. So on one of my recent Disney Cruise Line sailings on the Disney Dream cruise ship, I saved every receipt to figure out how much my family and I actually paid for the vacation.

Having that information is important, not just for me when I'm ready to plan my next cruise with Mickey and the gang, but so you can budget appropriately for your next Disney cruise. Let's face it — Disney Cruise Line vacations are expensive, but the memories made on the ships are priceless.

Is it possible for families on a budget to afford a Disney cruise? The short answer is yes, but there is some strategy involved. Here's how much our Disney cruise really cost for a family of three.

How much it costs to go on a Disney cruise

Before I dive into just how much my trip cost, let me give you some background.

The pricing for this cruise is based on my family of three adults. A cruise with kids will likely have a different balance of expenses.

Our transportation to the embarkation port of Miami is not included since the expense can vary greatly depending on how you choose to get to the port. We drove since we live in Florida, but not everyone is lucky enough to live within driving distance of their departure port. I did include all the other costs from our trip, including a pre-cruise hotel stay, the actual cruise fare and dining at specialty restaurants on board.

My family and I were not super strict with our budget, but we also didn't splurge on everything. We did treat ourselves to a few meals at the adults-only restaurants on Disney Dream and a few cocktails each day, but we never went overboard with extras in the ports of call. Checking our onboard account each morning through the Disney Cruise Line app made it possible for us to have a fun vacation without emptying our bank accounts.

Cruise booking

disney cruise tickets cost

Our biggest cost on this trip was the cruise fare because sailings on Disney Dream are not cheap. Even if you avoid the specialty restaurants, skip excursions in each port and stay in one of the cheaper cabins, you'll still spend a few thousand dollars just to get on board.

For three adults sharing a cabin, Disney Cruise Line vacations start at $1,298, including taxes and fees, and that's for a quick two-night sailing on Disney Wonder in Australia in 2024. If you're planning a longer cruise from the United States, it will cost significantly more, especially during peak times when kids are out of school or during a themed sailing.

Because of how expensive Disney cruise sailings are, I always look for deals, either a Florida resident offer or a discount on a select sail date.

Our Disney Dream cruise was a five-night Halloween on the High Seas sailing, with a Florida resident discount for three people booked in a balcony cabin (which Disney calls a verandah stateroom). The total cost of the cruise, including taxes and fees, was $2,497.28.

Total for cruise booking: $2,497.28

Pre-cruise hotel accommodations

I always suggest that people arrive in their embarkation city or a city nearby at least the day before a cruise. This relieves the stress of having to get to the ship on time in case of flight delays or blocked roadways.

The night before my Disney Dream cruise, my family and I stayed at Disney's Vero Beach Resort, which is a little over halfway from our home in Jacksonville, Florida, to Miami.

We used Disney Vacation Club points to book an "Inn-Standard View" room, which was big enough for the three of us. The room cost us 16 points, so we technically didn't spend any money on booking a hotel the night before. Unless you have points to spend, don't forget to budget for lodging before or after your cruise, as needed.

Total for hotel: $0

Pre-cruise meals

The night before our cruise, we decided to eat out in Vero Beach at American Icon Brewery. Everyone in my family got a local beer to try, then we shared an appetizer, and everyone got their own entree. The meal set us back $106.55.

While Disney's Vero Beach does have an on-site restaurant, we enjoy getting out in the city and trying a local place. American Icon Brewery was fun, and the food and service were both great.

For breakfast the morning of our cruise, I brought muffins that I made at home for my family to enjoy. The room included a coffee maker and Keurig coffee pods, so we drank that with our light breakfast. Disney's Vero Beach Resort does serve breakfast at its onsite restaurant, but we needed to hit the road early to get to our 11 a.m. port arrival time, so the muffins and coffee were a perfect easy breakfast.

Total for dinner: $106.55

Parking at the port

Parking at any cruise port can add a large amount to a cruise vacation. For five nights, parking at PortMiami was $110. We paid for this as we were leaving the parking deck rather than upfront.

Total for parking: $110

Specialty dining on board

disney cruise tickets cost

Disney Dream has two adults-only specialty dining restaurants onboard, Palo and Remy. To dine at either restaurant, cruisers should get a reservation in advance through the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app. If you can't secure a reservation before the sailing, ask about walk-up availability for either restaurant once on board. Just be sure to head straight to the hostess desk outside of Palo and Remy as soon as you board the ship (even before eating lunch) because any open reservations will be snapped up quickly.

My family always eats at Palo for brunch on a Disney cruise, and this time was no different. The meal is a high-end table service option that starts with your choice of a charcuterie board or chilled seafood platter, plus a delightful spread of bread. The menu is also filled with entrees like house-made pizzas, plate-size Mickey waffles, made-to-order pasta and elevated egg dishes like frittatas.

The meal for the three of us cost $170. My dad also ordered Palo's signature bloody Mary, which tacked on another $12.39 to our meal.

On this cruise, for the first time ever, my family and I dined at Remy, a French-inspired restaurant that was worth every penny. To start, we were served a welcome cocktail called The Collette, which is named after the female chef in the Pixar movie, "Ratatouille."

Then we were presented menus that were divided into two prix-fixe options, one that leaned more French and one that leaned more high-end American. I chose the French menu, while my parents chose the American menu. The meal overall was fantastic and was worth the $462.50 for the three of us.

Total for specialty dining: $644.89

Specialty drinks and alcohol

disney cruise tickets cost

One thing that sets Disney Cruise Line apart from other family-friendly cruises is that it doesn't offer all-inclusive drink packages . Passengers must purchase all beverages on board at the per-drink price, though drink prices on Disney ships can sometimes be slightly cheaper than similar libations on other big-ship lines. Plus, soda is included in your cruise fare.

Disney Cruise Line also allows passengers to bring your own wine or beer on board at every port , while other cruise lines restrict guests to one bottle of wine at embarkation only. Not only does this policy allow you to potentially save money on beverage costs, but you can enjoy interesting brews and vintages from the places you visit.

Every night, my family went to happy hour at the adults-only bar Meridian, which is located between Palo and Remy. This spacious bar has large windows that overlook the sea and two outdoor patios with seating. Cocktails for five nights at Meridian cost my family of three $179.67.

Other places to have a specialty cocktail or coffee on Disney Dream include the Cove Cafe, Skyline, Pink and 687. At these other bars, my family spent $122.16.

While we enjoyed all of the bars and lounges on the ship, Meridian was easily our favorite and not just because of the view. The Cast Members who work in this bar are top-notch and learned our cocktail preferences quickly. By night two, they were shaking up off-menu cocktails that they knew we would enjoy.

Total for drinks: $301.83

Disney Cruise Line allows guests to prepay their onboard gratuities for their stateroom host and their service team in the dining room. This charge came to $72.50 per guest.

On top of the standard gratuities, we chose to give an extra $20 to our dining room server, assistant server and head server, plus our stateroom host , all of whom get a portion of the prepaid gratuities. At the end of our cruise, we also gave the two bartenders in Meridian an additional $20 in cash for all of their hard work throughout the week and for making our vacation special.

Total for gratuities: $337.50

While I'm not normally one to get a souvenir from a cruise ship, I couldn't resist making a few purchases on Disney Dream.

My favorite Disney character, Sorcerer Mickey, is the stern character on the ship, so a lot of the Dream-branded merchandise has this variation of Mickey on it. And since this was a Halloween cruise, I found some spooky souvenirs in the stores, too. I dropped $118.97 on merchandise.

Total for souvenirs: $118.97

Related: 11 things you should never buy on a cruise ship

On most cruises, my family and I opt to explore the port on our own versus buying excursions . It saves us money, and we can head back to the ship whenever we want. On this cruise, our ports of call were Grand Cayman and Disney's private island , Castaway Cay.

Because we've visited Grand Cayman previously and it's not our favorite cruise port, we stayed on the ship that day to enjoy the less crowded pool decks and a nice lunch inside one of the main dining rooms.

On our Castaway Cay port day, we did get off the ship but didn't opt for any of the island's excursions, instead heading to the adults-only beach, Serenity Bay. We also enjoyed lunch at the adults-only beach, which is included in the overall cruise cost.

If we were going on a cruise to destinations we had never been to before, like a Disney cruise to the Mediterranean or Alaska , we would likely opt to do Disney-sponsored excursions, which are often a few hundred dollars per person per excursion. And if your family has never been to Grand Cayman, you might want to book a tour to explore the island or one of its attractions.

Excursions: $0

Spa services

One of my favorite areas on any Disney cruise is the Senses Spa and its Rainforest Room. This area of the spa features multiple shower experiences, saunas, a row of heated lounge chairs and two private hot tubs. The best part is that the lounge chairs and the hot tubs are in a glass-enclosed space, so you can see the ocean or ports while using the facilities.

On this five-night sailing, my mom and I booked a "couples rate" to be able to come and go from the Rainforest Room as we wanted throughout the cruise. The total cost for that was $187.62. My mom also opted to get a massage on the cruise, which cost $209.42.

Total for spa services: $397.04

What it really costs to go on a Disney cruise

disney cruise tickets cost

For three adults sharing one cabin on a five-night Halloween-themed sailing on Disney Dream, the total cost came to $4,514.06. That equals out to each person paying $1,504.69 for the trip, or $300.94 per person, per day.

To put that in perspective, our five-night Disney cruise was a similar cost on a per-person, per-day basis to TPG's Summer Hull's three-day trip to Walt Disney World .

Based on our trip, here's the major breakdown of Disney Cruise Line trip expenses:

  • 55.3% cruise fare
  • 2.4% pre-cruise hotel and meal
  • 2.4 % parking
  • 14.3% onboard dining
  • 6.7% drinks
  • 7.5% gratuities
  • 2.6% souvenirs
  • 0% excursions
  • 8.8% spa services

A Disney cruise can be an affordable way to take a Disney vacation, especially if you're willing to forgo upcharges such as concierge rooms and pricey excursions in ports of call. On my family's Disney cruise, we kept our daily expenses to just over $900, though it's very easy to rack up a folio bill for thousands of dollars a day more. If you want to stay within a certain budget, be sure to try as many money-saving hacks as possible to keep the cost in check.

A Disney vacation will never be cheap, but with some planning and flexibility, it is possible to take a Disney cruise without draining your bank account.

Disney Cruise Cost Pricing Explained 

Let's start by covering the details of how Disney Cruise costs are calculated between room pricing and cost per person. 

Disney Cruise Room Pricing

All Disney Cruise costs are priced based on two adults in the stateroom (room on the ship). This means that one adult traveling with a child (ages 3-12) is the same price as two adults (13 and up) in the room. Children ages 0-2 pay 50% of the child rate.

After the two adult prices, the third and fourth passengers in the stateroom are charged a lower rate. If you are traveling alone, Disney Cruise Line will charge you 100% of the second adult’s cruise fare (not including port fees and taxes) in addition to the full fare for the first adult.

Pricing Per Adult

It is simply impossible to determine exactly how much a person will pay without looking at several different factors. We are going to break these factors on Disney Cruise cost down for you.

Then, we will help you gauge pricing on a budget to pricing with no limits, and everything in between, so that you have an accurate idea of what you can expect to pay for your Disney Cruise itself. We will also show you a full Disney Cruise Scenario with estimates on what you may need to include for a Disney Cruise.

Which Disney Cruise Should I Do?

The first couple of factors to consider when deciding to book a Disney Cruise and cost are where you want to go and what ship you want to sail on.

Disney Cruise Ships

Disney currently has 6 signature cruise ships with more on the way.

The newest cruise ship available right now is the Disney Wish, but the Disney Treasure begins sailing in December of 2024, and it is almost time to start booking!

Each Disney ship is decked out from bow to stern in immersive Disney experiences. The experiences are going to differ depending on the ship, where it is sailing to, and if it is a themed expedition or not.

Ships Sailings

  • Disney Magic : Bahamas, Caribbean, Mexico, Panama Canal
  • Disney Wonder : Alaska, Mexico, Caribbean, South Pacific, New Zealand & Australia
  • Disney Dream : Caribbean, Bahamas, Europe, Bermuda, Transatlantic Cruises
  • Disney Fantasy : Caribbean and Bahamas
  • Disney Wish : Bahamas
  • Disney Treasure : Caribbean

Disney Cruise Cost Factors

There are a few factors that will impact the cost of a Disney Cruise like time of year, location of the cruise, plus the Disney Cruise ship chosen.

Time of the year

Disney prices their cruises based on peak seasons. The more in-demand the cruise sailings are, the higher the pricing.

The first peak season is the most expensive. Think about when children are out of school, June – August. There is an increase in demand for ships and sailings, so the pricing also goes up. Alaska, and the Caribbean, are usually priced high during this time. Europe and the Panama Canal are usually only offered during these peak seasons.

Holidays are another popular peak season. The Bahamas and the Caribbean are going to be more expensive during these times because families will want shorter cruises, which are offered to these two locations.

Off-season bookings will be cheaper, but keep in mind, that the weather may not be as cooperative depending upon the location you are sailing to.

When choosing locations for your cruise, a cruise to the more remote destination Alaska is going to cost more than sailing to the Bahamas from Florida.

Europe and the Panama Canal are usually only offered in the summer, which can drive up the price of the cruise.

When deciding on what you want out of your cruise, guests can choose from different night lengths.

Disney currently offers cruises in 1-3, 4, 5-6, 7 8-13, or 14+ lengths. The longer you cruise, the more expensive the cruise is going to be because more amenities are included and paid for in the cruise cost.

Specialty Cruises

Disney offers specialty cruises throughout the year. Each of these specialty cruises is going to include extra events, entertainment, dining specialties, and more that are factored into the higher costs.

Guests can book a Pixar Day at Sea, Marvel Day at Sea, Halloween High Seas, and Holiday-themed cruises.

Stateroom type

There are four different types of staterooms guests can book on the cruise ships. A stateroom is the cruise equivalent of your hotel room.

The most luxurious accommodations on the cruise and the most expensive. Each room has a large private verandah (balcony) and premium amenities and services included. Prices for this type of hotel room will be the most expensive out of all rooms on the ship costing upwards of $6,000 for a trip.

The most spacious non-concierge staterooms are in the Verandah category. Each room comes equipped with a private verandah (balcony), some with partial views of the ship and ocean. The space and balcony are worth the price increase if you are sailing on a longer cruise. This category is the second most expensive type of room to choose from and also tends to sell out the quickest. Pricing tends to start around the $3500 total mark for most cruise lengths and destinations. 

The oceanview room has more space than an inside room and also includes a porthole or two to be able to see the ocean. This is a great middle price on the cruise where you can still see the ocean passing by, but you don’t have the balcony to walk out on. This type of room falls in the middle pricing category. The cheapest cruises will come in around $2800 total but can go much higher depending on the length and destination.

The base accommodations feature no outside viewing as the rooms are on the inside of the ship. However, Disney provides a scenic porthole display of different images to make it not feel as claustrophobic. These will be the absolute cheapest rooms due to not having an actual window or balcony. If you want to go on a Disney cruise, but your family is on a strict budget, these rooms will be the cheapest, averaging around the $2,000 – $4,000 range. 

Transportation To Port

By far the biggest factor that will vary for each family going on a Disney cruise is the transportation to the Departing Port.

You will need to provide your own flight, take a train, or drive to the port that you are leaving from. This cost is going to vary widely depending on where you live versus where you need to leave from.

We also recommend arriving the day before the cruise is set to depart so there are no delays in boarding the ship at your arrival time. This is going to cost a night at a nearby hotel, which adds to the overall budget for your cruise.

Disney has ports in the following locations:

  • Fort Lauderdale, Florida
  • Port Canaveral, Florida
  • Vancouver, Canada
  • Auckland, New Zealand
  • Barcelona, Spain
  • Honolulu, Hawai’i
  • San Juan, Puerto Rico
  • Melbourne Australia
  • Southampton, England
  • Brisbane, Australia
  • New Orleans, Louisiana
  • Sydney, Australia
  • Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy
  • New York, New York
  • San Diego, California
  • Galveston, Texas

Certain cruises only depart from specific locations. You can filter this when you are searching to book your cruise.

When planning your destinations for your cruise, it is helpful to know where you are going to sail from. The majority of the Bahamas and Caribbean cruises are going to leave from the two ports in Florida, but they also depart from Texas. The Alaskan cruises sail from Vancouver, Canada.

The cheapest way to book transportation is to filter the cruises by which port is closest to you and see which destinations are available. Or, you can filter by destination and then see which ports are the closest to you to help keep costs down.

Keep in mind that if you drive to the port, this will be an additional cost to park your car at the port as well. The fee will be nightly similar to an airport.

What is Included in the Disney Cruise Cost Base Price?

A big question is what do I get for the price tag I see on the Disney Cruise Line website?

When booking your Disney Cruise, you are not just paying for a hotel room like many other vacations. You are paying for an all-inclusive Disney Experience . For every Disney Cruise booked, you can expect the following accommodations, activities, and amenities.

Room type chosen

Guests can choose from 4 different stateroom types:

  • Concierge – Most expensive and most luxurious
  • Verandah – Popular and mid-level pricing
  • Ocean View – Mid-level pricing
  • Inside – Cheapest book and smallest rooms

Three rotational table-service dining restaurants Buffet (for breakfast and lunch) Quick service bites

24-hour room service Unlimited soft serve ice cream Unlimited coffee, tea, and soda available on deck and at table service restaurants

On Ship Activities

Broadway-quality shows (original Disney products or live acts) Fireworks at Sea (available on most itineraries) Character meet and greets Movie screenings (first-run and popular Disney movies) Pools, waterslides, splash zones, and wading pools Gym and fitness center

Kids’ clubs

Disney’s Oceaneer Club (3 to 12 years old) Disneys’ Oceaneer Lab (2 to 12 years old) Edge (11 to 14 years old) Vibe (14 to 17 years old)

What is Not Included in a Disney Cruise?

While Disney Cruises is great at including a lot of amenities in the total trip cost, there are a few extras that you may want while sailing on your ship.

  • Port Excursions
  • Premium desserts
  • Premium coffee (at the Cove cafe)
  • Meals at the adult-only Palo and Remy
  • Gratuities – can be prepaid
  • Wireless Internet Access
  • Baby Nursery (6 months -3 years)

All of these items should be considered when pricing out your Disney Cruise so that you do not have any unexpected costs.

Menus for restaurants are available on the Disney Cruise Line Website, so you can see if you want to eat somewhere not included in the base price.

Port Excursions are also booked ahead of time, so you can prepay these items and include them in the final cost of your cruise.

Gratuities Explained

On a cruise ship, it is customary to give gratuities in recognition of exceptional service. Disney recommends a gratuity amount of $14.50 USD per night, per stateroom Guest, including infants and children or $15.50 USD per night, per stateroom Guest for concierge and suites.

Pre-Paid Gratuities are distributed to the Crew Members who take care of you in the following roles:

  • Dining room server
  • Dining room assistant server
  • Dining room head server
  • Stateroom host

Easily pre-pay gratuities online to create a carefree, all-inclusive experience by visiting My Reservations in your Disney account and following the prompts for Pre-Paid Gratuities. If you do not pre-pay before boarding the ship, Disney automatically charges your onboard account the suggested gratuity amount. Once on the ship, you can adjust the amount of your Pre-Paid Gratuities by visiting Guest Services prior to the end of your cruise.

Pre-Paid Gratuities do not include the following gratuities, which are either included in the charge or based on your discretion:

  • Extras added to rotational dining meals such as alcoholic beverages
  • Adult dining locations such as Remy, Palo, Palo Steakhouse and Enchanté by Chef Arnaud Lallement, which are not part of rotational dining
  • Food or drink in shops and outdoor or poolside eateries
  • Room service
  • Port Adventures
  • Senses Spa & Salon
  • Concierge Lounge Team—Guests staying in Concierge accommodations are recommended a gratuity amount of $8.00 per night, per stateroom Guest
  • Any other additional services
  • An 18% gratuity is automatically added to bar, beverage, wine, deck service tabs and spa services. All gratuities can be charged to your onboard account.

Disney’s Private Islands

When sailing on a Disney Cruise, one of the locations you will visit on your travels during a Bahamian cruise is one of Disney’s Private Island’s Castaway Cay and coming soon Disney Lookout Cay at Lighthouse Point.

Castaway Cay is the perfect beach getaway. Amenities on the island include

  • A family beach
  • Serenity Bay (18+ beach)
  • Teen Hideout
  • Game Pavilion
  • Sports Beach
  • Snorkeling Lagoons teeming with sea life
  • Water play areas
  • Walking trails
  • Open-air BBQ dining locations serving complimentary meals
  • Free transportation around the island
  • Character appearances
  • Boat rentals

Disney’s new island, Lookout Cay at Lighthouse Point will have similar amenities to Castaway Cay! We can’t wait to see what the island holds.

Breakdown of Pricing

This section of our article is going to take a look at the specific pricing of specific cruises to help estimate Disney Cruise cost. The three most popular Disney Destinations are the Bahamas, the Caribbean, and Alaska, so that is what pricing we are going to focus on.

Disney Cruise On a Budget

If you really want to go on a Disney Cruise and stick to a budget, the 3-night and 4-night cruises are going to be the best option. Depending on how far from your destination you are traveling, the amount of time on the ship versus in a port will vary. The Bahamas destinations are going to offer more time in ports where Caribbean cruises will be more time on the boat.

The cheapest room option on a cruise is always the interior room. However, these rooms don’t have actual windows and can make a very tight space for a family of four, which we are basing all of our pricing on. If possible, spring for at least an Oceanview room where you are guaranteed at least one actual window.

Another way to stay on budget is to adjust the dates. In the tables below, you will see different dates and different ships will provide cheaper options. Cruises during February, August, and September tend to be cheaper, similarly to a Walt Disney World Vacation, whereas cruises during holiday seasons (Spring Break, Christmas, New Years, Halloween, etc.) are going to be more expensive.

3- Night Bahamian Cruise from Fort Lauderdale

  • 4 Guests – 2 adults, 2 children
  • Disney Lookout Cay at Lighthouse Point & Nassau, Bahamas

4 – Night Bahamian Cruise from Fort Lauderdale

  • Disney Castaway Cay & Nassau, Bahamas

4-Night Western Caribbean Cruise from Galveston

  • Sailing to Progreso, Mexico

4- Night Western Caribbean Cruise from New Orleans

  • Sailing to Cozumel, Mexico

5- Night Western Caribbean Cruise from New Orleans

  • Sailing to Cozumel, Mexico & Progreso, Mexico

The cheapest Alaskan cruise is about the price of the Concierge Level for other Disney Cruises.

7 – Night Alaskan Cruise from Vancouver

  • Sailing to Glacier Viewing (Stikine Icecap), Alaska; Skagway, Alaska; Juneau, Alaska; Ketchikan, Alaska

Mid-Range Disney Cruise Pricing

A 5 – 6 day cruise is a great mid-price range budget. Typically with these cruises you will have enough time to explore the ship while also getting at least two, if not three days in a port of call to explore your destination.

For the longer 5-6 day cruises, we recommend the oceanview or verandah rooms. To keep the budget down and get to experience more for your money, avoid booking the concierge rooms at these middle price points.

Another great way to spend your money is to book one of the themed cruises. Guests can book the Marvel Day at Sea, a Halloween Cruise, or a Merry Christmas Cruise. The prices are going to be higher for these themed cruises even if they are only 5-6 days long, but you get a lot more special activities.

5-Night Western Caribbean Cruise from Galveston

5- Night Western Caribbean Cruise from Fort Lauderdale

  • 4 guests – 2 adults, 2 children
  • Sails to George Town, Grand Cayman & Disney Castaway Cay

No Restrictive Budget Pricing

The longer cruise you book, the more ports you can stop at and the greater chance you have to stretch your days at sea to fully explore all that the ship has to offer.

The longer the cruise, guests can also experience more themed Disney nights and formal nights as well. This can make the cruise an extra special vacation due to all of the extra magic you are receiving.

Our recommendation for rooms on a cruise any longer than 5 days is to book at least a verandah room if not the concierge rooms. This is going to provide the most space for the times when you need to escape from the hustle and bustle of the ship.

In addition to the longer cruise, specialty cruises can also be booked during peak times if you don’t have an incredibly restrictive budget.

Disney Cruise Line Discounts

Disney cruises can be expensive, but there are ways to save money.

The best way to save money is to book as soon as you know when you want to sail.

Cruises price rooms by tiers – the earlier you book, the lower the cost.

Special Pricing

Sometimes Disney will offer special pricing for Florida residents, military personnel, travel agents, and cast members.

They may also offer Kids Sail Free to families with children.

Travel Agencies can also offer promotions if you book through them in the form of Shipboard Credit. While on the ship, you can use this credit for spa treatments, merchandise, photos, and more. Be aware these credits expire at the end of your cruise.

Final Thoughts

A Disney Cruise is an exceptionally personal vacation that allows your family to customize the trip that fits what you want and need. With each ship featuring new shows, themed restaurants, amazing kid areas, and specialty adult-only sections, there is a multitude of opportunities that a Disney Cruise ship offers for a vacation – not to mention the amazing destinations. 

Unfortunately, because Disney provides so many different ships and opportunities, it is difficult to narrow down the exact price that a cruise will cost your family. One thing for sure is that you can't put a price on the magical memories that will be made on your Disney Cruise vacation.

How Much Is a Disney Cruise?

Disney Cruise Line is an excellent choice for families and couples who want to experience the magic of Disney at sea. That said, these premier cruises do come with a premier price tag. How much do Disney cruises cost, what are the factors that contribute to its price, and how can you save on your next Disney cruise? Let’s investigate Disney Cruise Prices!

Factors Affecting the Price of a Disney Cruise Fare

Prices can vary based on many considerations. Let’s start by looking at a few examples to illustrate how much Disney cruises cost for 2023, then we’ll examine what contributes to the prices.

How Much is a Disney Cruise? 2023 Examples of Disney Cruise Prices:

  • Disney Wonder ’s 3-Night Baja Disney Cruise from San Diego , sailing Thursday, March 16 to Sunday, March 19, costs $3,421 for an Inside stateroom, $2,897 for an Oceanview stateroom, $3,779 for a Verandah stateroom, and $5,891 Concierge stateroom. These prices are for 2 adults and 2 children, including taxes and fees.
  • Disney Magic ’s 4-Night Western Caribbean Cruise from New Orleans, sailing Thursday, February 23 to  Monday, February 27, costs $3,421 for an Inside stateroom, $3,669 for an Oceanview stateroom, $4,197 for a Verandah stateroom, and $7,453 Concierge stateroom, for 2 adults and 2 children, with taxes and fees.
  • Disney Dream ’s 5-Night Bahamian Cruise from Miami (with 2 Stops at Disney Castaway Cay ), sailing from Monday, April 10 to Saturday, April 15, costs $3,390 for an Inside stateroom, $3,530 for an Oceanview stateroom, $3,850 for a Verandah stateroom, and $9,310 Concierge stateroom. These prices are for 2 adults and include taxes and fees.

Note: Quoted prices can change quickly; contact The Vacationeer for updated pricing and more information for these 2023 Disney Cruise itineraries. They also have some of the best Disney Cruise onboard credit in the business and can provide an exact quote for how much a Disney cruise will cost for your family.

Why is there such a wide range in the Disney Cruise cost? Many variables affect the base fare for a Disney cruise.

General factors that affect the base cruise fare price include:

  • Ship – In general, newer, larger ships with the latest innovations and newest features have higher fares than older, smaller ships that may not be as updated. While all Disney Cruise Line ships are outstanding, the newest and largest ship, Disney Wish , commands higher fares than the oldest, smallest vessel, Disney Magic . At times, however, older ships may still have higher fares, if they have recently been renovated or if they are offering longer, more elaborate itineraries.
  • Length of Cruise – It is no surprise that longer cruises naturally have higher prices. Three and four-night sailings are generally less expensive overall, but their per-night price may actually be higher than longer sailings. Disney offers cruises that range from 3-night weekend sailings to extravagant voyages of 14 nights or longer.
  • Itinerary – Where a cruise ship travels will affect the fare price. Cruise lines have financial agreements with ports of call, and pay different amounts to dock at piers depending on the available facilities, the size of the ship, and how long it will be docked. These port fees are passed along to passengers. A cruise that visits more ports will naturally have higher total port fees than a cruise with fewer calls. The Home Port (where the ship starts and ends its journey) also matters; sailing out of New York might be more expensive than a Disney Cruise from Galveston , and a cruise from New Orleans would have a different price than a similar cruise sailing out of Miami .   Disney cruises visit ports around the world , including sailings in the Caribbean, Mediterranean, Mexico, Alaska , Hawaii , and more, all at different prices.
  • Passengers – Unlike most hotel reservations which charge a flat rate per room, cruise fares are per person .   — so cruising with a family of four people will cost more than cruising with just two or three. The oldest two people in the room are always charged the full adult rate regardless of age. Any additional passengers in the same stateroom pay fares based on their ages , and even infants are charged a cruise fare . If you’re cruising solo, you’ll likely have to pay a so-called “single supplement” because you don’t have two people in your room and prices are quoted based on double occupancy.
  • Sailing Date – Just like prices of other types of travel fluctuate throughout the year, the price of Disney cruises will also fluctuate based on sailing date . When family cruise vacations are more popular, such as during school vacations or holidays, demand for traveling is greater and prices will be higher. In general, cruises early in the year, after the Christmas and New Year holiday season but before spring break vacations, are the least expensive. Early fall cruises, after school begins but before Halloween kicks off the year-end holiday experiences, can also be more affordable.
  • Stateroom Type – The most important factor affecting the cost of a cruise, including Disney cruise vacations, is the type of stateroom selected. Smaller rooms with fewer amenities – typically interior cabins – are less expensive, but larger rooms with balconies or verandahs are more expensive. The most elaborate cabins, the concierge suites, offer the greatest amenities and most space, but at the highest prices.

Costs Not Included in the Disney Cruise Fare

The cruise fare, while often the bulk of cruise vacation expenses, is not the trip’s complete cost. When booking a Disney cruise , it is important to understand what additional costs are necessary – some required, some optional – to budget properly for the vacation.

  • Travel to the Port – Unless guests are fortunate enough to live close to a Disney cruise ship’s home port , the travel costs just to reach the cruise can add up quickly. Depending on how travelers reach the port, this may include airfare, airport transfers , hotel rooms, gas costs, parking fees, toll roads, and other charges, both before and after the cruise.
  • Taxes and Port Fees – In addition to the published fare price, cruise passengers are also assessed government taxes and port fees for their voyage. These will vary depending on the ship’s itinerary, how long the voyage lasts, and where the cruise begins and ends. At times, fuel surcharges may also be part of these fees.
  • Gratuities – While not required, it is customary to pay gratuities to the crew members who make cruise vacations so memorable. Disney Cruise Line makes this easy with the option to pre-pay gratuities prior to sailing, or guests can have gratuities automatically added to their shipboard accounts. The suggested amount as of July 2022 is $14.50 per day, per cruise passenger , which is divided up among the stateroom host and dining staff (this fee may be slightly higher in suites, which have more dedicated staff and a greater range of services). Additional gratuities for room service, Port Adventures, and other services are always at guests’ discretion.
  • Specialty Drinks and Dining – While there are abundant free drinks and dining options available on all Disney cruises , specialty options do have extra charges. This includes alcoholic beverages , smoothies, specialty coffees, and bottled water, as well as premium dining choices such as the adults-only restaurants (Palo, Remy, etc.), and sweets purchased at themed shops onboard, such as sundaes from Vanellope’s Sweets & Treats aboard Disney Dream or similar shops on other ships.
  • Premium Activities – Every cruise is packed with fun from bow to stern, and many activities such as trivia contests, dance parties, group competitions, character meetings, and extravagant stage shows are all included in the cruise fare. Certain premium activities, however, do have extra charges. These include magical makeovers, wine tastings, spa treatments, personal fitness training, bingo games, and exclusive events that include personalization and commemorative gifts, such as the Royal Court Royal Tea experience.
  • Port Adventures – When guests leave the cruise ship for explorations in port, extra costs are expected. The guided Port Adventures are not included in the cruise fare, but can be well worth the cost as these tours have been investigated by the cruise line and are designed to help guests explore ports safely and hassle-free. While they’re always optional, Port Adventures on some itineraries (such as Disney’s Alaska excursions ) truly enhance the trip. Tips to port tour guides and drivers are customary, but always at guests’ discretion.
  • Souvenirs – All souvenirs to commemorate a Disney cruise vacation are additional expenses to plan for. This may include photos taken by ship photographers, as well as different items purchased in shops, such as t-shirts, toys, magnets, hats, jewelry, photo frames, and much more, with many items exclusively available only onboard Disney ships. Similarly, souvenir items purchased in ports of call are also additional vacation budget expenses. Guests should also be aware that “forgotten” items can be purchased onboard – charging cables, sunscreen, batteries, hygiene products, etc. – but at very premium prices.
  • WiFi Access – Our lives today are highly digital, and even on vacation many travelers want to stay up-to-date with social media, email, and favorite blogs or websites. The WiFi access on Disney cruise ships does have extra fees, which vary based on the type of plan guests choose. Different plans permit different numbers of devices to connect or may feature different levels of connectivity, which allows travelers to choose the exact plan that meets their needs. All guests can use onboard WiFi for free for the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app , which can help them organize their fun by making reservations, viewing daily activities, accessing deck plans, and more.
  • Laundry – While few guests ever want to do household chores while on vacation, running a load or two of laundry may be necessary, especially when packing conservatively to save luggage space. All Disney cruise ships have self-service laundry facilities on board, but there is a charge to use the machines. Coins are not necessary, however, as the machines are paid via guests’ shipboard accounts. Full-service laundry and dry cleaning services are also available onboard, for additional charges.
  • Travel Protection – Travel plans can change in an instant, and a last-minute illness, injury, job loss, or another issue could disrupt even the most carefully laid vacation plans. Furthermore, travel delays en route to the port could result in missing the ship, while accidents or illnesses could happen during the cruise . Travel protection insurance is highly recommended for all travelers to safeguard their vacation investment but is an extra fee based on the conditions of the cruise, the number of travelers, and the type of protection selected.

Saving on a Disney Cruise

With so many extra charges that are not included in a basic fare, the cruise vacation deal that may have seemed relatively inexpensive to start can quickly become much more costly than anticipated. Fortunately, there are also many ways to save , protecting a vacation budget without sacrificing the Disney magic of the getaway.

Working with an authorized Disney Vacation Planner is the best way to save, as these experts can access bonuses and promotional offers such as free stateroom upgrades, included ship credits, and more, which can all bring down the overall cost of the vacation. Expert planners can also help advise eager travelers on the best Disney cruise ships and itineraries to meet and exceed their cruise vacation dreams while working within practical budget expectations.

Guests should research their cruise plans and the Disney Cruise cost thoroughly before booking, and be reasonable about their own budget and what they expect to purchase during the cruise. Looking at the cruise as an opportunity to unplug from the digital world can save money on WiFi connection plans, for example, or staying onboard the ship to enjoy all its amazing features instead of spending money on multiple Port Adventures can be a great savings. If the vacation can be planned at a less expensive time of year to set sail, that can also lead to significant savings.

Why Do Disney Cruise Ships Cost More Than Other Cruise Lines?

As travelers research Disney cruises, they may find that setting sail with Disney Cruise Line can be dramatically more expensive than sailing with other major cruise lines. Even when ship sizes and ages, as well as itineraries and ports of call, are all comparable, Disney Cruise Line is still typically more expensive.

This is because Disney Cruise Line is set apart as a premium line, and as such, includes a variety of features directly in the cruise fare , whereas many other cruise lines charge extra fees for the same items. For example, Disney cruises include free 24-hour room service, with an extensive menu that includes selected appetizers, salads, soups, and kid-friendly entrees, such as hot dogs, chicken tenders, burgers, and pizza, as well as a few desserts. Many other cruise lines charge for room service, may have fees for room service at certain times of day, or may not offer as complete a menu.

Similarly, soda is included for free on Disney cruises, when it is ordered with meals or from selected locations onboard. Other cruise lines charge individually for all sodas or offer drinks packages that include all non-alcoholic beverages but at hefty per-day fees.

Finally, there is no substitute for the Disney cruise experience, which makes the Disney Cruise cost worth it. Magic abounds on every deck with special details to discover throughout the ship, from luxury touches that make the magic come to life for all travelers to total immersion in the world of Disney, the fun of hidden Mickeys onboard each of the line’s vessels, cruise ship funnels that “sing” classic Disney tunes, and the ability to indulge in the youthful magic all ages can enjoy. Disney cruises are more expensive, yes, but the price is well worthwhile for the amazing experience that awaits.

About Disney Cruise Line cruises

Disney cruise line prices, disney cruise line loyalty program: castaway club, what is the best disney cruise line ship.

Disney has a massive global footprint across its theme parks, films and merchandise. And it doesn’t stop there. Among its many offerings is the Disney Cruise Line, whose fleet of five ships sails all over the world.

Family-friendly but with adults-only areas, Disney cruises offer some of the most comprehensive cruise options around. Let’s break down everything there is to know about the Disney Cruise Line, including pricing, destinations and its loyalty program.

You can always expect some magic from Disney, and there is no exception when sailing on Disney Cruise Line. Although its fleet is small, it offers a high-end, family-friendly experience for guests. Here’s a quick overview of Disney Cruise Line’s key features.

Cabin types: Disney Cruise Line offers all the usual cabin types, including inside, oceanview, verandah and concierge-level rooms . Disney Cruise Line’s cabins are larger than average and designed for families, with split bathrooms and privacy curtains. Their largest rooms can accommodate up to seven guests. 

Main U.S. routes: Disney has several departure points from within the United States, including options from San Diego, New York City, Miami, and Galveston, Texas. However, its most frequent departures are from Port Canaveral in Brevard County, Florida, to the Bahamas and the Caribbean or from Vancouver, British Columbia to Alaska.

Loyalty program: Disney Cruise Line offers the Castaway Club to repeat guests. It has four membership levels — Silver, Gold, Platinum and Pearl. The first level is earned by completing a single cruise.

Disney Cruise Line destinations

Although Disney currently operates only five ships, the cruise line still manages to cover most of the world. Here are the locations you can currently sail on a Disney cruise:

New Zealand.

Pacific Coast. 

Panama Canal.

South Pacific. 

Transatlantic. 

Cruises are available in a variety of lengths, from three nights up to 15 nights.

Disney cruises tend to be more expensive than the average cruise. Currently, for example, the cheapest cruise departing from Port Canaveral is a three-night trip to the Bahamas, which costs $1,958 for two guests.

disney cruise tickets cost

And you’ll pay more to take a "special occasion" Disney cruise. The same three-night Bahamas cruise sailing during Disney's Silver Anniversary at Sea starts at $2,345 for two guests.

disney cruise tickets cost

When it comes to timing, standard logic applies. The high season will cost more, especially during holidays and the summer break.

The cheapest rate we found — the previously-mentioned $1,958 — is for a cruise in late January, a time when those with school-aged children might have trouble getting away. Meanwhile, the most expensive period for this cruise takes place over the Christmas holiday and rings in at $3,737 for an inside stateroom.

For all destinations, if you’d like to save money, avoid peak periods and search all available dates to find the lowest rates . This is true even on less popular cruises, such as those sailing up to Alaska .

disney cruise tickets cost

The cheapest cost for two guests to Alaska from Vancouver is $2,983 in mid-September, while the same cruise will cost you $4,607 if you sail over the Fourth of July holiday.

One-way positioning cruises — that is, those that end in a different location from where they started — are often much cheaper per night than standard round-trip cruises.

What’s included

Disney cruises are more inclusive than most cruises. You don’t, for example, need to pay extra for soft drinks on a Disney cruise like you would on Norwegian Cruise Line . You’re also entitled to complimentary room service 24/7, unlike on Virgin Voyages, where you'll be charged a $5 fee for each delivery.

Here are more inclusions you can expect.

Live, high-quality entertainment.

Large staterooms (designed for parties of up to three guests).

Disney’s private island, Castaway Cay (on most Bahamas and Caribbean cruises).

Upscale restaurants, quick-service dining, poolside snacks and room service.

Adults-only lounges and pool areas.

Waterslides (on some ships).

Disney isn’t known for its loyalty programs. For example, there is no frequent traveler program associated with staying at one of its resorts or frequenting its parks.

The Disney Wish is the newest Disney Cruise Line ship and certainly its best. It just launched in the summer of 2022. Among its many amenities, guests can find the first-ever Disney attraction at sea. It’s a 760-foot water slide filled with show scenes, lighting, music and more that touches down into a lazy river.

The Disney Wish also has dedicated areas themed for "Frozen," the Marvel Universe and "Star Wars."

In addition, the Disney Wish has all the regular amenities you’d expect on a Disney cruise, including live entertainment, pools and spacious staterooms.

Disney Cruise Line does not offer free Wi-Fi. Instead, it has three levels of packages from which to choose:

Stay Connected: $10 per day for the entire cruise or $12 per day for a 24-hour period.

Basic Surf: $20 per day for the entire cruise or $24 per day for a 24-hour period.

Premium Surf: $30 per day for the entire cruise or $36 per day for a 24-hour period.

These packages are available on the Disney Wish, Disney Magic, Disney Fantasy and Disney Dream. The Disney Wonder still operates on the old data-usage Wi-Fi packages.

Most of your daily expenses, including your food and non-alcoholic beverages, are included when sailing on a Disney cruise. However, if you’d like specialty drinks or alcohol, you’ll need to pay extra. Gratuities are not included, and Disney Cruise Line's recommended tip is a minimum of $14.50 per guest, per night.

Disney Cruise Line doesn’t offer the standard drink package other cruise lines offer. Drink packages allow you to pay a flat-rate price and drink as much alcohol as you’d like.

Instead, you’ll either pay per drink or purchase bundled quantities onboard. It’s also possible to purchase a specialty beer mug at the pub onboard, which can then be refilled across the ship. Much like Disney’s popcorn buckets, your beer mugs entitle you to cheaper refills on all your beer.

In the past, Disney Cruise Line required that you be vaccinated or tested for COVID-19 before sailing, but this is no longer the case. Guests departing from the United States are not required to do either, though the cruise line highly encourages you to get vaccinated before sailing.

Safety concerns are also a significant factor that cruise lines consider when formulating their policies. They want to ensure the safety and well-being of all passengers on board. Therefore, it’s crucial to familiarize yourself with the specific rules and guidelines set forth by the cruise line.

Once you have a clear understanding of the policy, you can then proceed to choose discreet smoking methods that align with the cruise line’s regulations.

Choose Discreet Smoking Methods

Opt for inconspicuous methods when enjoying the herbal experience while sailing on the open sea. To discreetly indulge in cannabis on a cruise, there are several options available.

Consider these portable vaporizers, which allow for a smokeless experience and minimize odor. Another alternative is exploring edible options, such as cannabis-infused gummies or chocolates, which provide a convenient and inconspicuous way to consume. Additionally, cannabis capsules or tinctures can be easily concealed and taken discreetly. Lastly, cannabis patches or topicals can be applied on the skin, offering a subtle and odorless way to enjoy the effects.

These methods ensure a low-key experience without drawing unwanted attention.

Moving on to finding suitable smoking spots, let’s explore some ideal locations on the ship.

Find Suitable Smoking Spots

When you’re looking for a place to relax and enjoy your herbal experience, consider finding suitable smoking spots on the ship that offer privacy and tranquility. Hidden smoking spots can help you avoid detection and ensure a worry-free experience. One option is to look for quiet areas on deck where there are fewer people around, such as secluded corners or empty lounges. Another option is to utilize your cabin’s balcony if it has one, as this can provide a more private space. Additionally, some cruise ships may have designated smoking areas where you can indulge without drawing too much attention. Remember to always be respectful of non-smokers and follow the ship’s smoking policies. In the next section, we will discuss how to minimize odors to further enhance your discreet smoking experience.

Minimize Odors

To enhance your discreet smoking experience on a cruise, you can take steps to minimize any lingering odors that may arise. One effective method is to use a smoke filter, such as a sploof or a smoke buddy, which will help eliminate the smell by filtering the smoke as you exhale.

Additionally, you can try using odor-neutralizing sprays or candles to mask any remaining odors in your surroundings. Another tip is to smoke in a well-ventilated area, such as near an open window or on a balcony, to help dissipate the smell more quickly. Lastly, consider using a vaporizer instead of traditional smoking methods, as vaporizers produce less scent and smoke.

By following these techniques, you can maintain your privacy and minimize any unwanted odors while enjoying your cannabis discreetly on a cruise.

Transitioning to the next section, let’s explore some stealthy storage methods for your weed.

Use Stealthy Storage Methods

When it comes to smoking weed on a cruise, it’s crucial to use stealthy storage methods to avoid detection. One effective way is to invest in smell-proof containers that can securely hold your cannabis products, preventing any odors from escaping.

Additionally, disguising your cannabis products can also help you fly under the radar, ensuring a discreet and enjoyable experience while on board.

Use Smell-Proof Containers

Using smell-proof containers is a must when you’re cruising and enjoying some weed. These containers are specifically designed to keep any odors contained, ensuring that you can discreetly smoke without drawing attention.

Here are five essential smell-proof containers to consider:

Stash Jar: This small, airtight jar is perfect for keeping your weed fresh and odorless.

Smell-Proof Bag: These bags are made with special materials that prevent any smells from escaping.

Odor-Proof Pouch: Similar to a smell-proof bag, these pouches are compact and great for on-the-go use.

Vaporizer Case: If you prefer vaping, a vaporizer case will keep your device and cartridges odor-free.

Storage Box: For those who need to bring larger quantities, a smell-proof storage box is ideal.

By using these smell-proof containers, you can discreetly carry your cannabis products without any worries.

Now, let’s move on to the next section and discuss how to disguise your cannabis products without drawing attention.

Disguise Your Cannabis Products

Hiding your stash like a pro, disguise your cannabis products and keep them incognito. When it comes to camouflaging your cannabis products on a cruise, creativity is key. There are various ways to make your stash blend in seamlessly with everyday items, ensuring that no one suspects a thing. One effective method is to use diversion safes, which are ordinary-looking objects that have hidden compartments to store your weed. Another option is to repackage your cannabis into inconspicuous containers such as pill bottles or tea tins. To further enhance your disguise, consider alternative consumption methods like edibles or vape pens. These methods not only reduce the smell but also make it easier to consume discreetly. Remember, respecting other passengers and crew is crucial, so be mindful of your surroundings and keep your cannabis use low-key. Transitioning into the next section, let’s explore how to respect others while enjoying your cruise experience.

Respect Other Passengers and Crew

It’s important to be considerate of other passengers and crew members while enjoying cannabis on a cruise. Being aware of your surroundings and practicing considerate behavior is crucial.

This means being mindful of the smell and smoke that can accompany cannabis consumption and taking steps to minimize its impact on others. Communication with fellow passengers is essential as well. It’s important to be open and respectful when discussing your cannabis use with others, as they may have different preferences or concerns.

By being considerate and respectful of others, you can create a positive and inclusive environment for everyone on board.

Now, let’s shift our focus to being mindful of legal restrictions and how to navigate them while enjoying cannabis on a cruise.

Be Mindful of Legal Restrictions

Always be aware of the legal restrictions surrounding cannabis consumption to ensure a worry-free and enjoyable experience for everyone on board. When it comes to smoking weed on a cruise, it’s crucial to research the legal consequences beforehand. Different countries and even different cruise lines have varying regulations on marijuana use, and being informed can save you from unnecessary trouble.

Here are three key things to keep in mind:

Research legal consequences: Understand the laws of the countries you’ll be visiting during the cruise. Some places have strict penalties for cannabis possession, and ignorance isn’t an excuse.

Be aware of international laws: Remember that even if your cruise ship allows cannabis use, international waters still fall under different jurisdiction. Make sure you’re familiar with the laws that apply when you’re outside of any country’s territorial waters.

Respect the rules of the cruise line: Even if cannabis use is legal in some destinations, your cruise line may have its own policies in place. Always adhere to their rules to avoid any unnecessary complications.

By being mindful of legal restrictions, you can ensure a smooth sailing experience. Speaking of which, let’s now move on to the next section and learn how to stay informed about the cruise itinerary.

Stay Informed About the Cruise Itinerary

Make sure to stay updated on the cruise itinerary so you know which countries you will be visiting and can plan accordingly. Did you know that according to a study, the average cruise ship passenger visits around four different countries during their trip? It’s important to be aware of the laws regarding cannabis in each country you visit. Some countries have strict regulations, while others may have more lenient policies. Excursion planning is crucial in this regard, as you should avoid bringing cannabis on shore excursions to countries where it is illegal. Additionally, communication with fellow passengers can provide valuable insights and information about the laws and regulations of upcoming destinations. By staying informed about the cruise itinerary, you can ensure a smooth and enjoyable experience while also respecting local laws. Now, let’s move on to the next section about how to dispose of cannabis waste responsibly.

Dispose of Cannabis Waste Responsibly

To ensure you’re being environmentally conscious, it’s crucial to responsibly dispose of cannabis waste while on your cruise journey. Proper disposal not only reduces the risk of environmental harm but also promotes a positive image for cannabis enthusiasts. Here are four important tips for disposing of cannabis waste responsibly:

Use designated receptacles: Look for bins or containers specifically for cannabis waste disposal. These are often provided in smoking areas or designated smoking zones on the cruise ship.

Securely seal waste: Make sure to securely seal any cannabis waste before disposing of it. This prevents odor or leakage that could potentially impact the environment.

Avoid flushing: Never flush cannabis waste down the toilet or sink. This can lead to water system pollution and harm marine life.

Follow local regulations: Be aware of specific regulations and guidelines regarding cannabis waste disposal in the cruise destinations. Complying with local laws is essential to minimize the environmental impact.

By following these tips, you can ensure proper disposal of cannabis waste and minimize its environmental impact. Now, let’s move on to the next section about enjoying responsibly and staying safe during your cruise.

Enjoy Responsibly and Stay Safe

Have a memorable and worry-free experience by prioritizing your safety and making responsible choices while enjoying your time onboard. When it comes to smoking weed on a cruise, responsible consumption and safety precautions are of utmost importance. To ensure a positive experience, it’s crucial to be mindful of your surroundings and the rules set by the cruise line. Here are some key safety precautions to keep in mind:

By following these safety precautions and practicing responsible consumption, you can enjoy your time onboard without compromising your safety or the experience of others. Remember, it’s essential to be respectful, considerate, and always prioritize safety.

Can I bring my own cannabis on board the cruise ship?

No, it is not allowed to bring your own cannabis on board a cruise ship. However, some cruise lines have designated areas where you can find cannabis for purchase, but it is important to check their policies beforehand.

Are there designated smoking areas on the cruise ship for cannabis use?

There are no designated smoking areas on cruise ships for cannabis use. However, some cannabis-friendly excursions may be available at ports of call. Alternatives to smoking cannabis on a cruise include edibles or vaporizers discreetly used in private spaces.

What are the consequences if I am caught smoking cannabis on a cruise ship?

If caught smoking cannabis on a cruise ship, the consequences can be severe, including possible arrest and legal repercussions. To avoid detection, it is best to refrain from discreetly smoking cannabis on a cruise altogether.

How can I ensure that the smell of cannabis doesn’t linger in my cabin?

To ensure the smell of cannabis doesn’t linger in my cabin, I can use odor control techniques such as air fresheners, open windows, and smoking near the ventilation system. Additionally, I can employ discreet smoking methods like using a vaporizer or smoking in the bathroom with the fan on.

Are there any legal restrictions or consequences for smoking cannabis in international waters?

There are legal restrictions and consequences for smoking cannabis in international waters. It is important to research and understand the specific laws of the countries you will be traveling to before attempting to consume cannabis. There are alternative methods of cannabis consumption, such as edibles or vaporizers, that can be considered on a cruise.

Well, there you have it folks! We’ve covered all the bases on how to enjoy a little green on the high seas.

While we may have taken a satirical approach to this article, it’s important to remember that cannabis use is still illegal on most cruise ships. So, if you’re thinking of embarking on a weed-filled adventure, make sure to do your research and stay informed about the rules and regulations.

And always remember, enjoy responsibly and stay safe out there!

How Much Does a Disney Cruise Cost (Planning on a Budget)

disney cruise tickets cost

If you’ve taken a look at the prices of a Disney Cruise Line vacation, you may be feeling a bit of sticker shock. While it’s true that a Disney cruise is not a super cheap way to travel, it’s easy to argue that the service and amenities are well worth the price.

So, how much does a Disney cruise cost? The answer to this questions involves several different elements. For example, you will need to pay to book a cabin on the ship. However, most of the food, activities, and entertainment onboard are included in that initial cruise fare.

If you plan to add on excursions, special meals or drinks, and additional activities, you will want to work those items into your budget. Furthermore, you’ll also want to prepare for things like gratuities, internet packages, and spending money.

In this post, we’ll take a look at the different items you can expect to pay for when cruising with Disney . We will include required costs, recommended fees, and optional add-ons. If you’re looking to experience a Disney cruise on a budget, you can also read our top tips for ways to save money on a DCL vacation.

So, continue reading below to find out just how much a Disney cruise really costs!

How much is a Disney cruise?

If you’re wondering how much a Disney cruise costs, the answer is that it totally depends on which sailing you choose. Typically, you will pay a higher price to sail on longer cruises compared to shorter cruises (unless the shorter cruise takes place during a peak season). 

Disney Ship Docked at Castaway Cay

Normally, you will notice a major price difference between cruise fares during the low season and the peak times of year. If you are able to sail while kids are typically in school rather than during school holidays, you will save a lot more money on cruise costs. Basically, the cost of a Disney cruise is lower during the time of year that other popular destinations (like Walt Disney World) cost less. 

If you choose to sail during peak seasons like holidays, spring break, or summer vacation, you’ll notice that the price of your Disney cruise pretty much skyrockets. Additionally, cruises to Disney Cruise Line’s more popular destinations like Alaska and Hawaii will have higher prices.

Therefore, it helps to narrow down your search to an itinerary that is visiting the Bahamas or Caribbean. Disney’s Bahamian cruise itineraries tend to offer the lowest prices as do some of the Caribbean cruise itineraries.

Below, we’ll break down some of the items you’ll want to factor into your budget when planning your vacation.

Stateroom Prices

Years ago, when my family and I first started cruising, I remember researching the cost of Disney cruise tickets. I quickly realized that the process of booking a cruise is a little more in-depth than just buying a ticket.

Concierge Stateroom on Disney Magic with bed and living area

Once you determine which of the Disney cruise itineraries and ships you want to book, you’ll then need to choose a stateroom. The purchase of this stateroom serves as your “ticket” or reservation for the cruise.

Disney Cruise Line offers several different types of staterooms for guests including:

  • inside staterooms (interior rooms with no window)
  • oceanview staterooms (1-2 windows)
  • oceanview staterooms with a verandah
  • Concierge Level suites

Based on the room type you choose; the prices can differ drastically depending on your ship and itinerary. Most staterooms can easily accommodate a family of 4, and some can hold a family of 5.

Unlike most hotel reservations, you’ll be charged a fee for each person in the room. In other words, a family sailing with 5 guests will pay more than a group of 3.

Castaway Cay

The cost of your stateroom will probably be your biggest expense for your Disney Cruise Line vacation. However, the price of your cruise cabin includes much more than just your room. With Disney Cruise Line, this cost includes items such as:

  • meals in the main dining room
  • non-alcoholic beverages
  • Broadway style shows
  • onboard activities
  • Disney characters

You’ll also notice that your stateroom’s grand total includes taxes and port fees . It’s important to note that these charges are not the same thing as port excursions. We will discuss more about excursions below.

You can always choose to purchase other items onboard like specialty dining, adult beverages, spa treatments, etc. for an additional charge. But most of the things to do on the cruise are already included in the price of your cruise fare.

When filling out my budget worksheet for a Disney cruise vacation, my main expense is the cruise fare explained above. However, most of us need to calculate some additional charges to determine the total cost of the actual vacation.

On a side note, if you are interested in printing a copy of my Disney Cruise Line budget, you can find a pdf version here or by clicking on the image below. This budget form is completely free to print as many times as you like.

Printable Disney cruise budget

A lot of us need to fly to the cruise port, which can be a big expense. I like to price out flights before booking my cruise because it can help me decide between itineraries.

For example, it is almost always cheaper for my family to fly to Miami vs Orlando. Because of this, we can often book a longer cruise out of Miami for a cheaper price than a shorter cruise out of Orlando.

Printable Cruise Planner

If you like the free budget worksheet I provided above and are interested in downloading my entire cruise planning packet, you can find it in my Etsy shop or by clicking on the image above.

Pre Cruise Hotel

It is highly recommended that you fly in (at least) the day before your cruise. I have experienced delayed flights for all sorts of reasons in every season. You don’t want to risk completely missing the cruise ship because your flight gets delayed.

Therefore, unless you live close to your departure port, you’ll want to include the cost of a pre-cruise hotel in your budget. Many families also prefer to book a hotel for the day they disembark from the ship as well. This provides an additional cushion in the rare instance that the ship is delayed in returning to port.

You can find more information on my family’s top picks for pre cruise hotels in these posts:

  • Best Hotel Stay before Crusing out of Port Canaveral
  • Where to Stay the Night before a Miami Cruise

Both of the hotel stays linked above were booked through Disney Cruise Line. We like to add our pre-cruise hotel stay onto our trip through DCL because it offers some additional perks that we discuss in those articles.

Transportation Costs

Once you fly into a city for your cruise, you still need to find a way to get to the port. Some ground transportation options you have include:

  • Uber or Lyft
  • hotel shuttle
  • car service
  • Disney Cruise Line ground transfers

We like to use Disney transfers because they are super reliable and so easy, especially with little kids. While the Disney Cruise Line shuttles tend to cost a bit more than other options, they really allow your vacation to start off on a relaxing note.

If you are parking your own vehicle or a rental vehicle at the port, you will need to add the parking fee to your budget worksheet. The price you pay to park a vehicle at the cruise port differs by port. You can find more information on parking costs for each port on the official DCL website. Typically, you pay per day. So, the longer your cruise, the higher the cost.

Extra Costs on a Disney Cruise

So far, we have discussed the items you need to calculate in your budget before your cruise begins. But you may be wondering what experiences come with an extra after you board the ship, We will discuss the items that have an extra charge below.

Shore Excursions

Shore excursions, otherwise known as port adventures, are the activities you plan to do when you get off the cruise ship in each port. We love choosing itineraries that stop at Castaway Cay, Disney’s private island in the Bahamas, because the island is amazingly beautiful.

A bonus is that you can also enjoy Castaway Cay for no additional cost. You can spend the day relaxing on the beach, eating from the lunch buffet, strolling around the island, and meeting Disney characters all for free since it is included in your initial cruise fare.

Castaway Cay Private Beach

If you prefer to purchase excursions at Castaway Cay, you can choose from all sorts of activities from snorkeling to boat rides. These port adventures can differ drastically in price, so your end costs will really depend on which one you choose.

You will also want to budget for excursions at any other port you visit. Depending on where your cruise stops, you may just want to walk around the port for free before returning to the ship.

Disney Cruise Planner

If you want to experience activities on each island, though, you will need to book an excursion. These port adventures can range in price anywhere from $10 to over $1000.

If your family is the type who loves to spend the day on a beach, you can often find budget-friendly beach excursions for your cruise. These beaches are sometimes even easy to access on your own without booking a port adventure.

For example, when my family and I visited Grand Cayman on our Disney Magic cruise, we chose to spend the day at a public beach. We disembarked the cruise ship and found a taxi for just a few bucks per person.

Your wait staff and stateroom host work extremely hard during the cruise. Not only do the dining servers take care of your family at dinner, but they also take turns serving food and beverages at breakfast and lunch. The servers even take care of you off the ship when you stop at Castaway Cay.

Likewise, the stateroom host cleans and organizes your stateroom not once, but twice a day! To show appreciation for all of their hard work, Disney automatically charges your account with gratuities .

Depending on how many people you have in your stateroom and the length of your cruise itinerary, the cost of gratuities could be very little or really significant. The current tip amount on Disney Cruise Line is $14.50 per person per day, so it’s super easy to calculate your gratuities even before you set sail.

On embarkation day , Disney Cruise Line typically offers a wifi special of 50MB for each stateroom for free. If you are planning to use more than this allotted amount, you can purchase more megabytes once on the cruise. You will receive a brochure at check in showing the different amounts and rates.

Spending Money

While on the cruise ship, Disney will charge your account for any extra purchases you choose to make. You may need just a few extra dollars for spending money, or you may want thousands of dollars. It’s really up to you!

Either way, you will use your Key to the World card to make purchases on the ship. At the end of your cruise, you will receive a final bill for your stateroom.

Shop on the Disney Magic

My family and I like to take snacks and popcorn to the evening shows. You can purchase these onboard or bring pre-packed items from home to save money. Other extra costs you may want to include for your cruise are:

  • alcoholic drinks
  • specialty coffees and beverages
  • photo packages
  • Senses Spa visits
  • specialty dining
  • laundry services
  • baby nursery

As mentioned above, you are permitted to pack pre-packaged snacks in your luggage. So, this is a great way to save money if you’re wanting to bypass the popcorn and candy lines before the shows. You can find additional items to add to your Disney cruise packing list here.

Planning a Disney Cruise on a Budget

While reading the article above, you probably took mental notes of all of our tips for planning a Disney cruise on a budget. Here’s a quick rundown of our top hacks for saving on a Disney Cruise Line vacation:

  • Save on flights by leaving from a port that is close to home.
  • Cruise during the off-peak season.
  • Book an interior room.
  • Use a ride share to get to the port.
  • Don’t buy extra items onboard.
  • Go without wifi for your trip.
  • Save the newest ship for another time since it’s usually more expensive.
  • Visit Castaway Cay where you won’t have added costs.
  • Use a travel agent that gives onboard spending money.
  • Book a three-night cruise or a 4-night cruise.

I want to mention here that many families opt to book different cruise lines because they are afraid Disney Cruise Line is too expensive. My family and I have sailed with Royal Caribbean and found that, in order to get the level of service you receive with Disney, you need to book a suite with Royal.

Therefore, by the time you pay for the Royal suite plus the added costs, the Royal Caribbean cruise prices are basically the same as Disney’s. We explain these calculations in more detail in our post on Disney Cruise Line vs Royal Caribbean .

Final Thoughts on Disney Cruise Costs

Now that you have an idea of what to budget for your Disney cruise vacation, you can book your trip. Planning your Disney Cruise Line vacation may seem overwhelming at first. But once your budget and itinerary are organized, it’s smooth sailing from there.

No matter which of the Disney ships you are interested in booking (the older ships like the Disney Wonder, Disney Magic, Disney Dream, and Disney Fantasy OR the newer ships, the Disney Wish and Disney Treasure), you’re sure to enjoy experiencing the magic of Disney while onboard!

Compared: The Cost of a Disney Cruise vs. Disney World

Is it a better value on a Disney cruise or going to Disney World? Either way, be prepared to open your wallet. Both the cruise line and the resort have a reputation for being pricey.

Disney Cruise Line terminal in Port Canaveral

But while many people complain about the price, most people also feel that they get what they pay for. Disney’s reputation for service is outstanding — and has been for decades. That’s why some folks have no issue paying out extra for an experience that’s second-to-none.

If you’re researching a trip to Disney World, you might have wondered if instead it might be a better deal to take a Disney cruise. Or maybe you’ve seen the prices on Disney cruises and wondered if you can save money by planning a trip to the resort instead.

No matter the reason, while the two experiences are very different, it’s a fair comparison to see if the cruise or the resort will give you the biggest bang for your buck.

Below, we’ve compared several options for both Disney cruises and trips to Disney World to see which comes out as less expensive.

What You’ll Spend on a Disney Cruise

disney cruise tickets cost

Just like any vacation how much you spend on a Disney cruise depends largely on your own personal budget, below, we’ve provided three options — a bare bones budget, a moderate budget, and a high-end budget.

For our comparison, we created a hypothetical family of four (two parents and two children) all staying in one cabin or room for a four-night cruise . And to make the comparison fair, we selected a cruise departing Port Canaveral (the closest port to Disney World), departing in June when many families head out for summer vacations.

Bare-Bones Budget ($6,861) If you want to simply get on the ship, we found a cruise aboard the Disney Wish departing in June that runs a total of $6,861 for an inside cabin for four passengers .

The cruise departs Port Canaveral, with a stop in Nassau, followed by a stop at Disney’s private island — Castaway Cay — before heading home to Port Canaveral

Keep in mind that this includes four people sharing a small cabin (169 square feet). However, you have full run of the ship. Furthermore, meals and entertainment are included, but extras like alcohol and shore excursions are not.

Moderate Budget ($7,517) The funny thing about taking a Disney cruise is that while most other cruise lines have large discrepancies between what you pay for an interior cabin and a balcony, Disney offers the upgrade for relatively little.

In our search, we found you could upgrade to a verandah (private balcony) cabin for just about 10% more, or $7,517 . In this case, you not only get your own balcony, but you upgrade your cabin space from 169 square feet to 243 square feet with the balacony. If you like, there is also a larger verandah cabin that’s 284 sq. feet for $7,901.

High-End Budget ($11,597) Are you a big spender on your vacation? In that case, you can get a top-of-the-line suite on a Disney cruise. These suites are ideal for families as they offer more space. That said, they will definitely set you back.

The cruise we looked at featured several options. The first was a Concierge Family Stateroom with a Verandah, which at 296 square feet, costs $11,597 . It should be noted that guests who select a Concierge level cabin receive special perks like priority boarding and private sun deck access.

Even higher-grade options include a Concierge 1-bedroom suite with balcony (and a huge 608 square feet) for $16,574 and a massive 1,507 square feet Concierge Royal Suite that runs a rich $33,758.

Other Costs Associated With a Disney Cruise

One nice feature of cruises is that you pay one price and most (though certainly not all) of what you’ll spend is included. This includes things like meals, entertainment, or course your transportation from port to port.

But there are some other costs to consider. This includes anything you spend on shore (excursions, meals, and drinks off the ship aren’t included). Alcohol on the ship is also another cost, as are gratuities for the staff.

With these, you can expect to add a few hundred more — to potentially thousands more (if needing airline tickets) — to the cost of your cruise, depending on your spending level. 

Compared: What You’ll Spend on Disney World

disney cruise tickets cost

While there is no doubt that Disney cruises are expensive for most travelers, keep in mind that they include nearly everything — all food and entertainment on the ship is included in the price. By comparison, you can buy packages for Disney World that include tickets to theme parks and accommodation, but food normally isn’t included. As well, the packages below don’t include flights or other transportation needed to get to the park in Orlando.

The good news? If you are a budget traveler, a 4-night trip to Disney World is much more affordable than a cruise. For those with a bigger budget, the cruise and similar stay at the resort are more comparable in price.

Bare-Bones Budget ($3,233) To compare apples to apples, we looked at a stay at Disney World for the same four nights offered on the cruise featured above. For the budget family travel, we looked at Disney’s All-Star Music Resort, which is a less-expensive hotel within the resort.

The four-night stay also includes park tickets for the family for four days and costs $3,233 . One thing to note — for this price, no dining is included (you’ll have to pay out of pocket for food), and the tickets are the base level that only allow access to one park per day.

Moderate Budget ($5,041) Have a little bit more to spend? There are quite a few options, but for $5,041 you can book at Pool View room at the Caribbean Beach Resort for a family of four, including park tickets . In addition, this price includes an upgrade to a Park Hopper option on the tickets, meaning you can visit multiple parks in one day instead of being limited to just one. 

For this price, we’ve also added in the Disney “Quick-Service Dining Plan” that includes a number of casual meals and snacks instead of spending more out of pocket.

High-End Budget ($13,288) If you have money to spend, what about a suite at the Grand Floridian Resort — one of Disney’s highest-end hotels? This stay features club-level service with a number of amenities not offered to other guests.

In addition, you’ll have four tickets each day with the Park Hopper Plus plan, which includes admission to any park on any day, along with waterpark access. It also includes the “Disney Dining Plan” with a number of meals included.

In total, the suite, tickets, and amenities runs $13,288 — noticeably higher than some suites on a Disney cruise, but within the ballpark.

Other Costs Associated With a Disney World Vacation

While we’ve priced out a hotel and park tickets, there are some considerable expenses that you’ll have to pay that aren’t included in these costs. 

This includes the cost of transportation, including driving or flying to Orlando, meals (if not purchasing a Disney meal plan), and souvenirs. Just like with a cruise, you’ll need to add a few things to the costs shown here to arrive at the total cost of the vacation.

Comparing the Costs of Disney Cruise vs. Disney World

In comparing the prices of a cruise versus a stay at the resort, it’s clear that most people will spend less heading to Disney World. In many cases — though not all — a Disney cruise will cost significantly more than the price of trip to the theme park:

So does that mean it’s not worth it to go on a Disney cruise? Not at all. There are some definite things to like about going on a cruise, despite a potentially higher price tag.

No Need to Fly to Orlando One major part of the cost of visiting Disney World is that you need to get there first. In our comparison, we looked at cruises departing Port Canaveral in the Orlando area. But the cruise line also sails from Miami, San Diego, New York, and Galveston. If you are within driving distance of one of these ports, you don’t have to worry about flights to Orlando. Depending on the size of your family, that can save thousands.

Don’t Have to Fight Crowds & Long Days Let’s face it, heading to Disney World can be anything but relaxing. The parks are big and can be crowded. By the end of the day you can be exhausted. In comparison, taking a cruise is more relaxing. Explore the ship, head to the pool, or simply hang out at the beach. There is no shortage of things to do on the ship, but it’s not as “go-go” as visiting the resort.

No Worries About the Florida Heat One of the worst parts of visiting central Florida theme parks in the summer? The heat. It can be downright dangerous if you don’t keep yourself cool and hydrated. It’s much different when you have a cool air-conditioned cabin on the ship just a short walk away at all times. In other words, if you have trouble handling heat, then a cruise may be a better option.

If you’re a Disney fan, there’s no doubt that you’ll love heading on a cruise or heading to the theme park. If you’re cost-conscious, you’ll likely have a less expensive vacation heading to the Orlando park. But considering the very different experiences between the cruise and the theme park, there is no wrong answer.

I’ve personally never sailed Disney as I’ve found it cost-prohibitive. I do know that $7,000 on other lines can definitely get you a very high-end vacation (suite cabin, lots of extras).

DISNEY CRUISE LINE

Aaa cruise search.

Envision taking your family on their biggest adventure yet filled with excitement that includes Broadway-caliber shows, a plunge down a water slide, and watching a fireworks extravaganza, all surrounded by your favorite Disney characters. That’s what you’ll get when you combine the enchantment of Disney with an ocean cruise to a private paradise. 

Disney is one of the best  cruise lines for families , but it also includes plenty of adult-only escapes and hideaway locations onboard. Whether you cruise as part of a family, as a couple, or go solo, you’ll be whisked away on a magical adventure you’ll remember for a lifetime.

KNOW BEFORE YOU GO

Disney Cruise Line is a small fleet comprised of just five ships, including Disney Magic, Disney Wonder, Disney Dream, Disney Fantasy, and the newest and largest vessel, Disney Wish, which hosts a blue and gold Cinderella-themed Grand Hall. No matter which of the ships you board, you’ll get state-of-the-art amenities and Disney décor throughout the ship.

Disney cruises invite all kinds of people, both young and young at heart, onboard. But every aspect of your cruise will be Disney themed, so if you’re not a Disney fan or at least a Marvel or Star Wars enthusiast, this may not be the cruise line for you.

Activities and events book up quickly, so download the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app to your tablet or smartphone before you leave land. You’ll need to be tech-savvy (Disney is paperless), as the app is indispensable onboard your cruise. You can use it to plan your trip, book premium activities, check-in, and make special requests. While cruising, the app functions as a map, a handy chat feature to connect with group members, and a way to receive receipts.

And unlike other cruise lines, you cannot opt for a beverage package here, so cocktails will be a pricey splurge. Note: each guest can carry on two bottles of wine or six bottles of beer at embarkation. 

Disney has plenty of US-accessible departure ports, including Fort Lauderdale, Port Canaveral, and Miami in Florida. Galveston, TX, Honolulu, HI, New Orleans, LA, New York, NY, San Diego, CA, and San Juan, Puerto Rico, round out the US and territories for embarkments. Other Disney cruises depart from Canada, Europe and Australia.

Disney cruises utilize rotational dining, meaning you will move to a new themed restaurant each night, and your wait staff will rotate with you. Having the same servers guarantees you will get an allergen-free meal, or your special requests fulfilled whether you are eating at Rapunzel’s Royal Table or Animator’s Palate.

There are three types of staterooms: inside cabins, oceanview cabins, and verandahs. Suites include Concierge Suites and Concierge Family Oceanview Staterooms. Disney has special pricing on many rooms with obstructed views making some larger staterooms much more affordable. Additionally, connected rooms are more economical than paying for multi-room suites. 

FAMILY-FRIENDLY CRUISING

Disney ships are keenly laid out for kids of all ages. All stateroom doors are magnetic and can be decorated to help your children identify their rooms. Additionally, all port side (lefthand side) doors have metal fish that face toward the rear of the ship, while the starboard side uses seahorses. It is these tiny touches that make every aspect of a Disney cruise feel dreamy while helping your children be more self-reliant.

It's a Small World Nursery is available for very young children. But if your child is at least three and potty trained, try out one of the Kids’ Clubs. These are some of the most whimsical rooms on the ship, so it’s worth going to the open house on Embarkation Day. Kids Clubs include the Oceaneer Club for ages 3-12, Edge, a Tween Club, for ages 11-14, and Vibe for 14 to 17-year-olds. 

ADULTS ONLY ESCAPES

But what if you’re a full-on Disney fanatic without kids or just need a break from your bundles of joy? On Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy, you’ll want to recharge out on the satellite sundecks. The adults-only policy is strictly enforced on these decks. Also, have a stroll to Quiet Cove pool and Cove Café, where you can get your morning croissant or an afternoon cheese plate. 

Palo and Remy are both adults-only restaurants. Palo serves Northern Italian cooking with a modern twist, and Remy hosts a five-course dessert. These restaurants do expect semi-formal attire, but there’s no real dress code anywhere else on the ship, so feel free to cruise casually.

For a much-needed date night with your significant other, Disney offers mixology classes and interactive game shows like Match Your Mate. Also offered are Art of the Theme tours, led by cast members who discuss the design of the ship. 

CASTAWAY CAY

This private island is only available to Disney Cruise Line guests, and it’s a three-mile paradise in the Bahamas located 70 miles north of Nassau. Castaway Cay is largely undeveloped, with only about 55 acres in use. But it does have an operational Post Office, so you can send specialty postcards back home if you wish.

Free BBQ is included on your island excursion. There are four tram stops on the island with strollers and all-terrain wheelchairs available. Family beach activities are everywhere, including watercraft rentals, snorkeling, beach sports, and the Pelican Plunge.

Serenity Bay is the island’s adults-only area, where cruisers can enjoy the idyllic white sandy beaches and the tranquility of the crashing waves on the beach.

Main Dining

Rotational Dining:  The Disney Cruise Line method for making sure each guest experiences each themed dining environment onboard. Every evening you dine with the same tablemates and have the same servers as you "rotate" to one of the three main restaurants: Arendelle - A Frozen Dining Adventure, Worlds of Marvel, and 1923. You will be given your schedule when you board, so you'll know exactly when you'll enjoy the unique atmosphere of each restaurant.

Arendelle - A Frozen Dining Adventure:  Be a part of the world's first Frozen-themed, theatrical dining experience as you're magically transported to the enchanting Kingdom of Arendelle aboard the Disney Wish.

Worlds of Marvel:  Assemble for a heroic dining adventure of epic proportions! Explore state-of-the-art quantum tech at the Avengers Technology Showcase while indulging in flavorful global cuisines – from classic all-American fare to rich African flavors – inspired by some of your favorite heroes. During dinner, leap into your own action-packed Super Hero story, where some of your favorite Avengers might turn to you to help them save the day! It's a cinematic dining experience for the entire family.

1923:  Named after the year The Walt Disney Studios was founded, this sophisticated dining establishment evokes the glitz and glamor of Hollywood while celebrating the unwavering spirit of the original studio that started it all. Travel back in time as you dine amid storyboards, sketches and props that illustrate the early animation process, while delighting in some of the tantalizing flavors found throughout the Golden State.

How Much is a Disney Cruise Per Person 2024?

set-sail-party-on-the-disney-wish

This article is your guide to figuring out the Disney Cruise cost per person in 2024. Of course, traveling with Disney on land is always fun, but Disney Cruises are another way you can experience the magic. We love Disney Cruises here at The Park Prodigy and think they’re a great way to explore the world, being proud members of the Castaway Club!

But, just like the theme parks, anything having to do with Disney travel comes with a price tag. That’s why if you’re here you might be wondering about the cost of a Disney cruise per person recently. We’ve found that at most, you could be paying upward of $3000 for a Disney Cruise per person, but many things could influence that. Luckily, we’ve been on a few and can help you break down everything you need to know about the pricing of Disney Cruise Line.

We hope you find this post helpful! And if you are planning a Disney Cruise, check out our other FREE vacation planning tools. Our goal at The Park Prodigy has always been to help you save time on your next vacation and find the cheapest Disney Cruise vacation!

How Much Does a Disney Cruise Cost Per Person?

set-sail-party-on-disney-dream-cruise-ship

Just like any other cruise line, the Disney Cruise Line has a variety of cruises with different destinations, trip length and more which heavily will influence how much you’ll pay for a cruise. The Disney Cruise cost per person varies greatly depending on several factors such as the destination, the type of cabin you choose, and the time of year you plan to travel. On average, you can expect to pay anywhere from $700 to $3,000 per person for a standard 7-night Disney Cruise. However, this price can go up or down depending on the factors mentioned above.

Our team has been on two Disney Cruises, one in 2018, and one in 2022 on the Disney Wish. Both Disney cruises costed around $1500 per person, $3000 total with the same sailing, just on a different ship. So, we like to take that in mind as we write this that so far for us, the cost of Disney Cruises have been around $1500 per person.

What’s included in the price of your Disney Cruise?

  • Buffet and quick service dining throughout
  • Meals at one of three main dining rooms
  • Complimentary soda, tea, coffee and water – ice cream too!
  • 24/7  room service
  • Cruise Entertainment

When you’re calculating how much is a Disney Cruise per person, it’s important to know what’s included in the price. Your Disney Cruise price per person includes your stateroom, all meals (except for meals at Palo and Remy, the adults-only dining options), entertainment, character meet and greets, and access to the ship’s pools and fitness center. It also includes the cost of transportation to and from the port of departure.

What is not included in your Disney Cruise price?

  • Specialty restaurants (Remy & Palo – adults-only restaurants)
  • Airfare and ground transfers
  • Bottled beverages and alcohol, smoothies or specialty drinks
  • Snacks outside of dining areas (like popcorn, candy, peanuts)
  • Specialty Experiences (Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique & Royal Court Royal Tea)
  • Shore Excursions

What are Factors That Affect the Price of a Disney Cruise?

Disney-wonder-cruise-ship-sailing-alaska

The cost per person Disney Cruise can be influenced by several factors. These include the time of year (with peak travel times typically costing more), the length of the cruise, the destination of the cruise, and the type of cabin you choose. For example, a Disney Cruise for a family of 5 may cost more if you choose to travel during peak times or opt for a larger cabin.

Just like in the parks, the cheapest time to take a Disney Cruise is in September. We do have an entire article outlining the pricing of Disney Cruises and when is the cheapest time to go. The main reason September is the cheapest time to do a Disney Cruise is because of the weather. September is historically the start of hurricane season in the Atlantic and this means more delays and potential cancellations. So if a cruise does need to be canceled and is unable to be rebooked, it’s less money lost from the company. Both of our Disney Cruises have been in September, which we specifically booked for the cheaper pricing. 

What affects the price of a Disney Cruise?

  • Stateroom type
  • Sailing date
  • Passenger amount (How many guests are sailing)
  • Destination and itinerary

Disney Cruise Costs by Destination

The destination of your Disney Cruise can significantly affect how much a Disney Cruise costs per person. For example, a Caribbean cruise may cost less than a European or Alaskan cruise due to the difference in distance and port fees.

For example, sailing in August 2024 the following destinations were this price:

  • 7-Night Eastern Caribbean Cruise from $3,309 for 2 guest
  • 7-Night Western Caribbean Cruise from $3435 for 2 guests
  • 7-Night Alaskan Cruise from $3728 for 2 guests
  • 7-Night Norwegian Fjords Cruise from $5,715 for 2 guests

When looking to book a Disney Cruise , as a rule of thumb, we recommend the Caribbean cruises to those who are looking to save.

My family went on a $6,000 Disney World vacation and a $5,900 Disney Cruise, and the latter was a much better deal

My family of four recently went on a Disney World vacation and took a Disney cruise.

On the Disney cruise, we got to see different places and explore new countries.

The vacations cost about the same amount of money, but the cruise was a better value.

As a travel planner at Marvelous Mouse Travels , clients often ask me if I prefer Disney cruises or Disney World vacations.

My family did a split trip where we spent four days at Disney World and four days on the Disney Wish, which gave me a great insight into the differences between the two options.

Here's why I think the cruise was a much better value.

We started our trip at Disney World with fun in the theme parks.

While in Orlando, we stayed at our favorite resort , Yacht Club, which has easy access to both Hollywood Studios and Epcot.

Throughout the trip, we explored all four parks by purchasing park-hopper tickets, and my family had a blast riding our favorite rides, eating with characters, and shopping for souvenirs.

It was a jam-packed four days, and they were long. We woke up early to get to the parks and returned to our hotel late after the nighttime shows.

After factoring in our hotel stay, park-hopper tickets, and all our meals, our total came to $6,000.

We loved the theme-park vacation as much as always, but we were excited to get to the next part of our trip.

After visiting the parks, we boarded the Disney Wish for a four-night Bahamian cruise.

Stepping aboard the Wish for the first time was breathtaking.

As Disney's newest ship, it's filled with exquisite designs and unmatched attention to detail. It also looked impeccably maintained and offered classic Disney service.

As we settled in and explored the ship , characters greeted us around every corner, which added to the magic.

Our four-night cruise in a deluxe family ocean-view stateroom with a veranda cost $5,900, including meals.

Throughout our cruise, we experienced so much of what the ship had to offer.

Disney Cruise Line has an app named Disney Cruise Navigator that shares all the daily activities. Most are complimentary, and there's always something to do .

My kids hung out in the kids' clubs, saw movies, and played at the pool and gym. As a family, we saw Broadway-caliber shows, participated in family trivia, and ate at fun restaurants (including a Marvel dining experience and "Frozen" dinner show).

While our kids were supervised, my husband and I enjoyed the adults-only lounges and activities.

The kids were supervised when they hung out in the club, so my husband was able to do a fun beer tasting, and we both loved doing a wine tasting .

My favorite adventure was enjoying a massage at the Senses Spa, followed by a great glass of wine at the Rose Lounge.

There's also the adults-only Quiet Cove Infinity Pool, where you can have a drink or read a book, and adults-only brunch and dinner available at Palo or Enchanté.

At Disney World, it's almost impossible for us to appreciate adults-only activities when we're with our kids .

You can hire a babysitter or seek out the kids' club at Camp Dolphin inside the Dolphin Hotel . But these services aren't included in your stay, and I find them much more difficult to arrange.

Another great perk of the cruise was getting to explore different places.

Disney Cruise Line has itineraries all over the world including Alaska, Europe, Hawaii , and the Caribbean. On this trip, we visited Nassau in the Bahamas and Disney's private island, Castaway Cay.

We also took a day trip to the Atlantis resort, and my kids had a blast at the water park .

Castaway Cay offers a relaxing and fun beach day. We snorkeled, built sand castles, ate a delicious barbecue lunch, and basked in the sun.

The cruise ended up being more affordable, and I think it was a better value overall.

A Disney Cruise might look pricier on the surface, but after we factored in the cost of meals and drinks at Disney World, the value of the cruise was more apparent.

Plus, the number of activities offered — for both kids and adults — made for a relaxing and fun experience.

If you haven't experienced a Disney Cruise , I highly recommend it.
