Trying to talk someone into DCL

I'm trying to talk our extended family into a 3-nighter next summer. I've pointed them to a trip report of the same itinerary. Any other suggestions? They have never cruised before. Thanks!

Have them sign up on Disney cruise line website for special ads and letters sent out. Some of the updates they read about will loosen them up to the idea. It worked on me. I would also fish around for best deal nothing puts people in a great mood and open minded like getting a great deal. That's pretty much the pitch of companies like ebay and see how well their doing and how attractive it is to people. Just don't pay for cruise in full until very last minute. I've just made that mistake and trying to figure way out of it.

There is a thread on here started a few days ago titled "Sell me..." that has lots of great reasons to cruise and cruise DCL.

We did the exact same thing to get into cruising; took a 3 day DCL trip last year. Had to talk my wife into it. I think it depends on the persons hangup. If the point is money, look for a deal. If they're worried about getting sick/rocking explain boat stabilizers and the size of the ships. If they're worried about things to do, show them some of the DCL promo videos on youtube.
