My first post in the DCL forum because we are planning our first cruise!
As background, we are Disney lovers - DVC members and have been several times, especially over the last 5 years since we've had kids. BUT, we are not cruisers. I've always wanted to take one, but have been nervous about crowds and seasickness, and my DH pretty much has said he wants nothing to do with a giant ship packed like a sardine can full of people.
We are giving it a try though because our kids will be old enough (5 and 3) to go together to the kids clubs, which they have been dying to do since seeing them online. And they begged us. Spoiled.
We are staying at WDW before the cruise and are debating between:
3 Day Bahamas Disney Dream leaving 12/5 from PC OR
4 Day Bahamas Disney Magic (after refurb!) leaving 12/4 from Miami
At first glance it seems that a 4 day cruise would be better, and a smaller ship would be better esp. since its going to be so updated. But it takes a day out of our WDW time (we are travelling with friends for that portion of the trip), and it leaves out of MIA, which is over 3 hrs from WDW.
We are thinking of staying on the ship in Nassau because the kids aren't really old enough for most excursions, nor are the tall enough for 90% of the Atlantis stuff. But if we had a 4 day, we might get off. Also - they are doing the holiday/Christmas party stuff and I am wondering if its going to be too hectic on a 3 day.
SOOOOO I'm confused. WWYD?! Thank you DCL experts!
