Can you carry-on ALL luggage onboard a Disney cruise?

Hi! The husband and I are light packers, always have been. We always carry on one small suitcase each when traveling. We are going next week for our first Disney Cruise. I don't want to have to give up my luggage and then wait hours for the porters to bring it to the room. Is it possible to carry on all bags? (We have done this before on Norwegian with no problems.) Thanks for any advice!

If it can fit through the scanner, you should be good to carry it all on. I heard some mention of 2 items per person for carry on while boarding the Dream on 28-March, but no one was enforcing such during the process.

If it will fit throught the scanner, you can carry it on. Just keep in mind that you will have to hang on to the luggage because staterooms usually aren't ready until 1:30.

Thanks!
No worries about hanging onto the luggage...we'd've been hanging onto a day bag anyway, and as I said, our luggage is small. Plus, we have a 12:30 checkin time and the rooms are ready at 1:30, right, so there shouldn't be a big gap (hopefully).

Sounds like you should be fine.

I dream of being such a light packer, but alas, I am so NOT!

My family just did a 3 night DCL cruise (3/28/13) with 6 days in WDW. We did all carry ons. This is was my 7th DCL cruise and I don't pack as much now as I did on my previous cruises. I have learned to use my bottoms twice and bring a travel size Fabreeze to keep clothes smelling fresh. You can fit a lot on a carry on if you roll everything.
