Hi everyone! Let me preface this by saying I am NOT the "non-Disney" person! In fact, I am probably one of the biggest Disney fans you will ever meet. My husband, on the other hand, is at the opposite end of the spectrum. We have a soon-to-be 5 year old son, who definitely takes after his momma when it comes to Disney. Neither of us has been on a cruise and we are feeling a bit lost in planning our first sailing. We are hesitant to go on Carnival because of experiences our friends have had, and Royal Caribbean's September itinerary isn't really matching up with what we're looking for but we may be able to make it work. My son & I have dreamt about a Disney cruise for a few years but my husband is concerned about that the entire cruise will encompass hanging out with Mickey and friends, that the excursions won't live up to those that are offered on RCI and I'm sure a few other things. I guess I'm wondering if there are other "non-Disney" people who have cruised with DCL and had opinions on their experience, and people who have sailed on all 3 lines and how Disney measured up to the other 2. Thanks in advance for any stories you may be willing to share!
