Summer or New Years Cruise??

Experienced cruisers... if you had a choice between a summer Disney cruise (7 night- Fantasy) or the New Years cruise (7 night- Fantasy), which would you choose?

I'd choose summer. We've cruised twice in January & both times found the water a little "too refreshing".

You have liberally applied fluff as filler as well

I've done both, and my NYE cruise was one of my favorites. We were lucky with fairly warm weather on our Western Carib itinerary and celebrating the New Year up on the deck with fireworks and champagne was truly memorable.

No question, NYE. Check out YouTube for videos on the NYE parties. It is quite the party. It can be a little chilly in Florida, but once you get yourself to the islands, it warms up.

I also say NYE. Unless warm ocean temps are very important to you.

Definitely NYE! I'm from FL and find cruising in the summer unbearable but some people love it. Personal preference. FL/Caribbean weather for NYE is hit or miss. One year we're swimming outdoors in our pool followed up by the next year in jackets.
